I just started the second season of Upload and god I forgot how much the writing sucks. I really enjoy these kinds of sci-fi concepts. The ideas around consciousness, technology and transcending death and how that affects human relationships. But it's made so lazily.

No. 189097

BCS Season 6 trailer just dropped, how are we feeling?

No. 189170

Hm…Overall, I'd say it's a show for when you want something truly darkly comedic, in a really female way. People call things "dark comedies" a lot, but I think Fleabag really qualifies in a uniquely potent way – it's very much about the really bizarre humor found in incredibly dark points in one's life. Season 1 and 2 are kind of different beasts, though, but not in a bad way, though fyi the priest is not in season 1 at all. Season 1 centers around the protagonist dealing with every awful part of herself, really bleak (but funny). Season 2 has the priest, and is more…light-hearted isn't accurate, but it does come to mind. I'd say it's for when you want a romance between two weary, world-beaten people.

Seconding this. Fleabag was the show that made me realize I have to pay all my attention to female writers. A masterpiece imo, truly dark and truly funny, completely human and undeniably for women. That it's a huge hit with lesbians despite being a het show with one queerbait scene is neither here nor there though. She basically says she goes both ways but the entire show is about her fixation on men and getting validation from them and the one encounter she has with a lesbian is sweet but it felt out of place to me.It's still my favorite of all time.

I just finished Physical and loved it. I think it's an Apple TV+ show, but it's gotten 0 buzz – I found out about it by chance. Really dark in a very Fleabagish way. Rose Byrne plays Sheila, a housewife in early-80s SoCal who's miserable but in that sort of functional way people can float in forever. Shitty "male feminist" husband – the first scene is him trying to make a threesome between him, her, and one of his undergrads happen. The big arc of the series is how she falls in love with aerobics, and ends up building an empire – don't know the details yet, but we see a few tiny flash forwards.

The most striking thing about the show imho is the narration, which is her absolutely brutal internal monologue. She's bulimic and depressed and it's just really, really raw in that Fleabag way, to the point that I'd say it's not something you should watch if you're not in a solid place. Like, we hear her nasty thoughts about other women's bodies, the way she sneers at literally anyone eating, etc. But it's really, really, really well captured. There are a few moments that made me sit up like Fleabag did, because they captured really dark female moments I'd never seen on screen before. And really fucking amazing stuff from Rose Byrne. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but I'm really glad I watched it.

SA – and Hacks! I made a big rec post for this on the old thread, I loooove it and am so happy it got awards. Zoomer comedy girl (Ava) and Joan Rivers-ish standup diva legend (Deborah) end up having to work together. What I love most is that there's a lot of comedy mined from their conflict, but so much of it is actually about Ava coming to realize she blows Deborah off as the "QVC muumuu lady" b/c of industry sexism. She has to really reckon with the dark heart of what comedy did and still does to women, and how she's just as much a tool of it even though she's an ultra-woke 20something. And Deborah also has to realize she can't just blow Ava off as a dumb Twitter kid! Honestly, the entire cast is so great, literally every character is fantasically written and acted, but like I love Fleabag for championing basically the shittiest woman you know, I love Hacks for basically being like "actually the ~cringe~ comedienne your great aunt loves who sells foot baths on qvc is a fucking god no matter what your 'comedy nerd' ex bf has to say about it."

Rec'd this in a previous thread but I really loved Tokyo Girl. It's not as dark and sarcastic as Fleabag but it's very real about women's struggles in the professional and romantic realms especially for a series from E. Asia. You follow a girl from 23 to 40 as she moves from a little rural town to Tokyo in the hopes of becoming a careerwoman and she grows as a person so much. She tries to make it work with all sorts of men who ultimately are using her for their own purposes in different ways, struggles with the idea of starting a family and what it would mean/what society would expect of her, until she ultimately works out a way to build her own little sense of peace and joy alongside other women she's met along the way. I ended up bingeing the whole thing in a day and it's still one of my favorite series. Definitely underrated/hidden gem. Written and directed by women.

Every once in a while, for many years now since its release, I think about the episode of black mirror "shut Up and Dance". What a fucking banger of an episode, is literally the only episode worth watching, everything else pales in comparison. The whole thing was so delicious for me, a random hacker psychologically torturing a bunch of paedophiles (and some random racist woman) was so exhilarating to watch. Just thinking about the drone scene and how maybe he was streaming in liveleak these 2 paedophiles fighting to the death in a forest makes me feel so light and filled with joy. A marvellous piece of cinematography.

yes, definitely keep watching. you won't regret it. there's so much more to the story that builds on their childhood, try to pay attention to all the characters that appear early on in their neighborhood because most of them are reoccurring/draw parallels in both Lila and Lenu's lives.

I feel that it's so rare for a person like Lenu to be the main character. it really is special that a show like this is made.

If you watch Euphoria you shouldn’t expect much from the story. I enjoyed it a lot, but only because the direction/cinematography is heavily stylized. It’s more notable in S2 than it is in S1.

I watched up to the ninth episode and stopped after the main characters/love interests kissed. It was really awkward because they don’t have much chemistry, and it’s hard to develop a convincing romantic connection in seven ~30 minute episodes. The humor itself is okay but sometimes it’s too on the nose? Like trying really hard to be progressive on purpose. Idk

This show was always basically Spanish 13 Reasons Why/Spanish Euphoria but holy shit what the fuck happened to this new season? The acting is 1000 times worse than previously, and there's simply no reason for the story to continue but I guess this show will keep killing someone off each season and keep doing this tired whodunnit format. I understand Netflix will milk a show for all it's worth until it's a shell of it's former self but I really don't understand what happened this season specifically? The plot is incomprehensible and it's edited as if it's some low budget youtube show. I had really low expectations and somehow I'm still disappointed.

And another thing, I've only seen the first episode and some of the second episode, and I don't really remember what happened in season 4, but regarding Phillipe The guy is a predator and a rapist idc. I don't understand why so many people are on his side like Samu and whoever else. Are we supposed to feel bad for the guy who's being "bullied" because he was a rapist? Again I haven't seen it all so things might change and I get that he hasn't been kicked out because of his status but the students who are still friendly with him doesn't make that much sense to me. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm not gonna get into the plot further than that because it's all stupidly infuriating and I could sit here ripping into it all day.

Does anyone have any recommendations for shows featuring women?

Nothing with rape, sex offenses, violence against women, or that whole “see women as bad as men” which often displays as; women who cuck their husbands, women who sexually harass every man they see, psycho serial killer women, and lastly I can’t do any more performative “she’s a bad bitch and she slaps down every man she sees because she’s a career women/mom/celebrity” I don’t find it empowering, just aggravating that real world struggles are getting watered down into tropes and punchy one liners. I will however happily take revenge style fantasy stuff that centers a women so long as it doesn’t feature rape or sexual assault.

By the way nonnies can you recommend a show similar to Tokyo Tarereba Girls? I didn’t really like the love plot with the blonde guy but what I’m seeking for is a show that follow a girls friend group.

Just finished season 1 of Barry and I really liked it except for the fact that I cannot for the life of me understand why they paired up the black lady cop with the literal geriatric acting teacher. Like I get that age gap relationships are a thing but she was like late 40s- early 50s and he looked like a hard 70. Don't see how anyone could think it's plausible that she'd be wildly attracted to a guy 5 years away from a nursing home.

Also loved Barry, and same. Although I think the older the two people in question are, the less a big deal age gap relationships are. Like a 50 year old dating a 70 year old is much less sus and gross than say, a 30 year old dating a 19 year old.

I loved it and I came here to post about it. I feel like this season felt like more of a continuation of the mystery from season one. I also really like that it integrates the time period into the actual plot (satanic panic is part of the conflict, but I'm not going to spoil past that.) Episode four was incredible, potentially my favorite to date.

It's not perfect, though. There's some serious tonal whiplash, and the CGI occasionally looks wonky, but it's a solid season overall.

I'm only three episodes in but so far I'm feeling like >>210725 ; came into it very reluctantly after 2nd and 3rd seasons just steadily went downhill, and if only it wasn't 3am I would definitely binge this one fully.

It wasn't as awful as I expected, but I am only one ep 5, so that's subject to change. The storyline with the freddie krueger monster is kinda meh and after a while, the bad CG death gets laughable.

I haven't really enjoyed S4 that much. I don't mind the shift in tone from the kind of light hearted S3, but it really is missing something to make it feel intrinsically like Stranger Things. I hate was they did to Robin's character, she was competent, brave and intelligent in S3. Now she's an uber quirky neuro divergent who is essentially paraded around as a woman child of comedic relief. I guess they didn't think they could have two competent female leads together? The story feels elementary, I know most people didn't like S3 but the way multiple storylines came together felt well thought out and was extremely satisfying. The Hopper in Russia plot and California shit does absolutely nothing for me and I don't really see the appeal of new characters like Argyle and Eddie. Chrissy was interesting but got killed off in the first episode. Also many of the characters do such dumb shit that they would never do in previous seasons eg. Steve and the water gate. The one thing I did enjoy was the body horror and satanic panic of the time that was captured pretty well.

i actually just finished s4. this happens everytime a new season comes out, im reluctant to watch it and then i end up binging it all the way through lol. i actually like eddie a lot, agree with >>212186 about robin. even though s3 wasn't the best the robin + steve duo was really fun

overall i really liked s4, there were definitely some stupid aspects i thought mike and co. visiting suzie was cute but the part where will directly referenced the never ending story scene from s3 made me roll my eyes. i'm looking forward to s5 and i'm glad it'll be the last one i just really hope they dont kill off steve because he's one of my favorite characters

Watched it. Can't wait for the last two episodes to be released. I really liked all of the plot lines except the LA one. Jonathan, Will and Mike were a tad boring. The new character Eddie is cool and the actress of Max did a really good job. The new villain guy is really hot and made me search for fanfics

honestly i hope eddie from stranger things dies. i like him as a character he is sort of cute but i want him to be with chrissy in a way. sure they only spent a couple minutes together but for those minutes they were really sweet together. together not necessarily as lovers or friends but symbolically.
also i dont know how i feel about the whole nancy steve thing its weird, and i hate those scenes with his bare chest out. was that meant to be fanservice i was honestly disgusted if anything but that might just be me.
to those who watched the show what are your thoughts on that russian soldier guy with hopper ? also btw regarding hopper i honestly was not shocked that he was alive but i still cried so much in the season three finale, even if it was not all to my taste but i was bawling do you think he will die like alexei ? there is some speculation that he will in self sacrifice, but nothing confirmed just fans theorizing.

No. 213352

Honestly this is my biggest disappointment this season (except for Hopper related storyline, I think it would be far more satisfying character arc if he stayed dead at the end of s3), that Chrissy was killed off in the very first episode. She was such an interesting new character and I was immediately excited about seeing more of her, especially since her interaction with Eddie seemed like something fun to explore, feels like we were robbed honestly. Nothing more really interesting is left about Eddie so I'm with you here anon, and I think it's actually very likely
Nancy and Steve thing was weird because he's just so awkward, ESPECIALLY with the bare chest, isn't fanservice supposed to be appealing? I can't believe this was appealing to anyone. At this point I'm cool seeing no romance at all whatsoever this season.

I actually think Mariana is the right one for Anne. Everything Mariana says about Ann and Anne together is fucking true, there is nothing much to their relationship beyond Ann being willing to marry Anne. Ann is simpleminded, feeble, meek. Anne got into it for money and found that she loved having a beautiful woman she could manipulate into a marriage.

Mariana however has a will of her own and challenges Anne in ways that Ann never has and probably never will. The only times Ann is capable of saying no to Anne is when someone she's even more afraid of enters the picture to order her around. She's growing as a person over time so I'd like my opinion of her to change too but honeslty she is a grating character.

The chemistry between Anne and Mariana is far superior imo and her voice is very very sexy.

I just binge watched Under the Banner of Heaven and honestly I really liked it until the last episode. The writing seemed to take a total nosedive in quality, and they upped the corniness to an absolutely stupid level.

What does this even mean! Shut the fuck up. First of all they put a darkskin woman in the main couple and that's a big stride, seldom do you ever see that in a mainstream show meant to appeal to wider audiences. That they're skinny is just common sense, fat people look like shit.

I don't doubt that he has ptsd from the war and I liked seeing how the other men returned broken versions of themselves, but you're right it was so boring! For a mob show, I was over it.

If you want an example of a historical crime show based on real people I totally rec Godfather of Harlem. It follows crime boss, Bumpy Johnson, who was once the principle lieutenant of madame Stephanie St. Claire who was a black female rackateer and numbers queen. She was a bad bitch in her own right and I would totally watch a biopic. But back to Godfather of Harlem, it follows his life and the inner machinations of Harlem, race relations, politics, and brewing unrest punctuating the crime wars. Even has Malcolm X and his waning ties to the Nation of Islam (and you probably know how that ended welp). There are a lot of little stories that show the good and bad in everything and I think the acting is pretty solid! I get if it's not your cup of tea though.

I’m on s4e6 too! No, they haven’t done anything wrong. Their only crimes are being women with different moral compasses than Walter White, being against drug trafficking, caring about their respective families, etc. Skyler is always talking about how Walt Jr’s lost all respect for her because she’s the “bitch mom,” which is the show telling its viewers to try and sympathize with her because she’s more than that, and yet mindless scrotes needlessly dickride Walter throughout the entire show.

it's an HBO max show, and unfortunately, that's not why. It's because HBO max got sold to discovery+, and they're pretty much cutting like 70% of the content and changing it into a lot of shitty reality tv shows/game shows. The issue with raised by wolves is that it's budget is huge, the views it apparently got weren't that great for what it was, and it's a sci fi (famously least popular genre in hollywood unfortunately). So it just wasn't worth it for the execs compared to something as shitty as our flag means death which apparently doesn't cost a lot to make, and is a comedy.

I've returned. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I feel like Vecna's body looks a little awkward and his voice made me cringe during some moments. I really think they could've given him lines that would've made him seem more threatening instead of repeating some things he's already said. I also couldn't help but cringe when Steve said he wanted six kids and then told Nancy later on he wanted to have them with her. Nancy is ambitious that's only going to hold her back, you leeching male. Anyway, I really thought Nancy was going to have to choose who to save when the vines grabbed Steve and Robin. And then I thought she was going to get attacked by Vecna when she was shooting the shit out of him while he was on fire. I'm glad she's okay. It was really nice to see the demogorgons again. Max's death absolutely ruined me for a moment. I didn't think I would cry that much kek. Didn't help that Eddie died too. Also, does anyone else get irritated when Will grabs/touches his neck? kek it's such a petty thing to get annoyed over but I can't help it. But I am very neutral about this season, lol.

I was super disappointed with volume 2. They should've committed to Max's death, it felt so cheap to have such a heartbreaking death scene for her and then El unleashes sudden hidden revival abilities. I don't think they'll go a morbid route of pulling the plug, its obvious they're going for a storyline of retrieving her soul from Vecna in season 5 because her soul isn't in her body at the moment. But is she going to still be blind when she's recovered? Would've be morbid if so. Also Eddie's death was so useless and was written so badly. There was nothing new added to Vecna and the Vecna/El faceoff was uneventful as fuck. The mind flayer joining forces with Vecna ruins the whole mystery of this unknown other worldly entity from the previous seasons. The first few episodes of season 4 were strong but it crumbled from shitty writing.

I'm late and I know not many people on here are super into The Sopranos but seeing people talk about Skyler hate on Breaking Bad made me remember the fandom treatment of Carmela Soprano and I fucking hate it. Tony Soprano is a mob boss who ruins peoples lives through loansharking and other illegal endeavours, he bangs any female with a pulse and murders multiple people throughout the series - even murdering one guy when on a trip to look at colleges with his daughter. But Carmela enables him, takes blood money, stole $40K from the bird feeder (pocket change for Tony) and she nags him about giving her financial security in case he dies or goes to jail, so burn her at the cross for her sins. Men shouldn't be allowed to watch tv. Maybe Sesame Street if they behave but nothing else because they're tiny brains can't move past "man good woman bad" and it affects every single opinion they have.

No. 218556

Carmela is my favorite character. I don't understand how moids can watch the series and somehow think she's worse than Tony for taking his blood money. You can't say she's a gold digger because she clearly was in love with Tony when she married him (and still is) PLUS he got her knocked up and its not like she really had a choice but to marry him in their conservative sphere. I'm not even sure how she "enables" him other than doing her wifely duties. Her "nagging" is just her having valid concerns about her and her kids' future without Tony. Also Carmela sleeps with another man while they're separated and kisses one guy once when they're together and somehow that makes her a cheating whore that's worse than Tony with his laundry list of infidelity. Even if she was a serial cheater I couldn't have any other opinion other than fucking good for her. I can't stand the unrelenting Carmela slander in every single Soprano moid dominated community.

No. 218566

AYRT, the "enabling" is usually explained that she knows what Tony's work entails but doesn't leave him. I wouldn't necessarily call that enabling myself, just brought it up as it seems to be the most common "critique" of her. What is she meant to do though? Wage a one woman war against the mob? "TOE-KNEE! I TAWLD YOU NAWT TO MURDAH ANYONE ELSE!!!" She's definitely in love with him which is why Whitecaps is still such a huge gut punch after so many rewatches. The hospital episodes too, after Tony got shot. Edie Falco did a really great job with the emotional scenes, portraying that even though Carmela and Tony are barely civil, she still loves him to death. "nagging" the father of your children to provide for them being a bad thing is peak male mentality. "yeah he knocked her up and married her and wanted her to be a housewife but fuck her lol she should get a job" I completely agree about the infidelity. If Carmela actually did sleep with Vic Musto I would've cheered her on, kek. Same with Furio, and I actually think Furio was a good fit for her. Another thing I hate from moids is "wahh they made Furio a softie in season four!!!" when at the party Tony and Carmela throw for him when he first comes to America you see him giving a woman advice for her baby and playing with children. They didn't expand on it, sure, but Furio had a softer side since the start. He was good at his job, but always quite stoic and thoughtful outside of it.

About Max
I think she may actually die, agreed that would be the best course of action even though I love the character, and Sadie Sink is a very good actress. In one of the last scenes we can see El tried reaching to her mind and found nothing there; which can mean that despite her best healing efforts she was not able to reach Max and her brain is dead anyway. It would be even more painful, storywise, to see her pass away like this, not dramatically in an epic faceoff of another universe but slowly in real life, also putting a clear limit to what Eleven can and cannot do, which would make the stakes higher for the final battle in the final season. We will see.

Tom is my favorite 100%. Shiv is a close second. Their relationship makes the show for me. The power dynamics and subversion of gender roles between them are so fascinating. I love Tom’s temper tantrums and how earnest/emotional he is, and how he clearly loves Shiv so much but near the end of s3 begins to act so cruelly towards her, just as she’s grappling with how much she needs him. I’m not sure they’d break up in s4. They’d probably just play mind games around each other until one of them drops dead.

I'm yet to watch the final episode of s3 so I can't speak on what Tom does to Shiv at the end of the season, but Shiv has been horrible towards him most of the series. I tried to like her character but I just can't. The infidelity, open marriage request on the wedding night, coldness about Tom's possible prison sentence, the cruel pillow talk and agreeing to have a baby only out of spite makes her irredeemable to me, although you can see how she became that person through her shitty circumstances. Tom is by no means a good guy but he's definitely my favourite character. The Greg/Tom dynamic is too perfect right now to become a romantic storyline imo. Kendall is a close second because he's such an entertaining trainwreck to watch. Marcia and Willa are also based.

I have been sperging about this show since I started watching it last November. Sorry for my autism but I get so excited talking about it.

Do you mean GNC as in Gender Non-Conforming? If so, based. Shiv and Tom’s marriage is really roles-reversed. Also, yeah, Greg is nowhere near the right guy for Tom, I think he kind of takes him for granted. But I saw someone say that Greg only “takes” so much from Tom because he knows how willing he is to “give,” and that it’s kind of a love language for him. Still rubs me the wrong way.

Nonna, please rewatch all Tom-Shiv scenes through a misandrist lens… Tom does not care about the open relationship because of the sex, he’s open to taking advantage of it himself. Tom is upset by it because it means Shiv doesn’t fully belong to him. He obsesses over having control over her. He’s routinely upset at their dynamic, at how she has more power over him because she’s the Roy. They are equally bad towards each other. Her only crimes are having sex habits that make Tom uncomfortable, that he doesn’t make an effort to communicate his feelings about. Meanwhile Tom is overtly concerned with using Shiv to leverage his position at Waystar. How many private conversations of them do we see where Tom ISN’T begging for another step-up/promotion/etc?

It’s interesting that you mention Shiv wanting to have a baby out of spite. Do you not remember Tom, several episodes earlier in the season, wanting to have a baby to keep him and Shiv together if he was to go to prison?

I really feel that Shiv, both in-universe and as a character on a TV show, is in an extra-vulnerable position as a woman. She’s under so much scrutiny that no other character faces. I’m so defensive about her LOL.

Oh I love this one. See also linkrel.

Just watched season 4 of Stranger Things and only thing I didn't see said yet is that goddamn they made it VERY clear Will is hopelessly pining for Mike lol

No. 220268

My sister forced me to watch the final two episodes and yeah it was very obvious Will is gay. He's all "im so different" CRIES uehuehuehuehueh wahhhh and his ugly brother is like "i love you no matter what" and my sister is like "UWUUUUUU !!!!"
Anyway I hate Stranger Things and Will is a little faggot and Mike hit the wall and I am angry I had to watch two and a half hours of a finale that ended on a fucking cliffhanger.
Anyway yeah I think Will may end up gay but they don't want to blatantly write it on the wall probably for flexibility of the script or to claim they had an epic gay setup. But also Mike is with 11 still, right? What I got from the final two episodes is that 11 doesn't really care about Mike that much, she seems bored and fed up with him lol

No. 220308

I watch most shows with a healthy does of misandry but it still didn't work for me here. Tom is still a piece of shit don't get me wrong. He clearly is using her to climb the corporate ladder, but I think that's secondary to his love for her. Remember on their honeymoon when he proposes to quit the business life and just fuck off and be scuba instructors? I do believe that was genuine. The impregnation shit was unhinged and he needs to respect her wishes, although I don't see why you would get married without having those conversations beforehand. I guess Shiv did the same with the open marriage topic though. I can't agree that he is open to the open marriage, he didn't want to have a free pass at the bachelors (tbf it was because he didn't want her to fuck anyone else but that's normal in a monogamous relationship) and he didn't want to partake in the threesome at all. As for being upset about their dynamic, I can see it but can personally understand as their agreement and plan for the future was for him to take over (ludicrous idea but anyway) and that changed in a heartbeat when Shiv was "offered" the role. I was dead set on liking Shiv, especially before watching the series all I heard was scrotes hating on her and I assumed it was a normal scrote hate like what happened to Skyler and Carmela. But I will agree with you that a lot of the mistreatment she gets in the show and by the fandom is her being a woman. Roman mocking her for not wanting to put up a fascist nominee for instance, while she is the only one in the room who has any politics expertise. I somehow don't believe she or any of the Roys are good candidates for CEO, but for her its because of her lack of being able to read the room in professional situations (the whole of season 2 lol). BUT I will say that most of her outbursts and snark would be excused if she was a man.

Anyway I finished Succession a few days ago and will be rewatching immediately so maybe some of these opinions will change soon.

>I also couldn't help but cringe when Steve said he wanted six kids and then told Nancy later on he wanted to have them with her. Nancy is ambitious that's only going to hold her back, you leeching male.
Holy shit, this. It was just a giant reminder of how incompatible they are, but the show is framing it like it's cute? What happened to season one where Nancy said she didn't want to be a housewife with a bunch of kids? What happened to her caring about her career?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's sweet that Steve loves kids so much. But that doesn't mean I want Nancy to be his fucking brood mare, what the fuck. If the Duffers have them get back together, I'll be legitimately pissed, because Steve will ruin her dreams and it will send a really shitty message.

Also Johnathan's reason for doubting their relationship came from the fact that he wanted to take care of his family in California, but they're not even living in California anymore, so it's a moot point.

Yeah okay, I respect this. As long as it’s not brainless handmaiden hate. When I rewatched Succession, already having in mind my favorite characters, I payed extra attention to Tom and Shiv and came out with a little more sympathy to the latter, but Tom is still my favorite by a landslide.

Oh, nothing will ever happen between them, at least not explicitly. I hate how Greg treats Tom but it’s fine because I know Greg will eventually end up worse than when he started at the end of the series… hopefully. I honestly enjoy bait a lot, it’s enriching and I hope they do more. I really doubt it counts as bait though, because they’re not pushing it at all in advertisements or promos. A lot of their most-cited “moments” were actually just improvisations from the actors.

I know that Tom isn’t wearing a ring in a scene they were filming the other day, picrel, so maybe him and Shiv have separated or divorced.

No. 220463

If they do end up separating or divorcing I'll be really surprised if it isn't Tom who gets the ball rolling and leaves Shiv, that feels like it's been a long time coming. Maybe Shiv on some kind of weird uncomfortable rebound as well?

There are two spin offs, Fear the Walking Dead and Walking Dead - World Beyond. World Beyond has an actor that is non-binary in real life, but honestly, I don't remember if that ever was discussed in the show, but it could be, how woke and shit the characters in World Beyond were written. But let's be honest, Walking Dead is so far from believable, they always stand in the middle of the road, discussing stuff and no woman has body hair, as if we all would shave while being on the run. Still, I like Fear the Walking Dead the best from all three shows, it's so far from believable that it's actually nice to watch.

Oh for sure. You see that video of the siblings outside an Irish bar? Kendall’s depression walk is iconic, he’s totally losing it even worse than he already has. I think he’s bipolar and struggles with the mania/depression cycle which is why he crashed and burned so bad this season.

I don’t think anyone is going to actually do any karaoke, it might just be a discreet rendezvous location, but if they do, it’d be a cute Roy siblings scene.

Because Skylar had expectations of Walt’s behavior whereas Kim just accepted it. Skylark chides Walt for using the incorrect credit card, skylar gets involved by seeing if grey matter will take him on board, then she has the audacity to cheat on Walt after he hid a life threatening diagnoses and killed two men while making meth! How dare she expect better from her husband in the midst of her high risk pregnancy, his imminent mortality and their crippling financial situation. Now Kim, she’s a good one because she helps Jimmy without judgement, hell she even enjoys the thrill and routinely bails him out of her own free will! When skylar finds out Walt is risking her life, the life of her son and infant daughter, not to mention his own, she has a mental break! Not Kim though, she immediately jumps to action!
Not to shit on Kim’s character, I think she’s great but men struggle to see women as people with their own lives and concerns. Kims interests align with Jimmys but skylars don’t align with Walt’s. Never mind that Walt’s interests don’t align with skylars, that doesn’t play into it because her life should revolve around him.
Of course, not all men but boy do a lot of them feel the need to share their callous takes and praise each other for doing so. Wondering if anyone replied to that idiot asking what was wrong with them that they think a father endanger his infant daughters life is virtuous and worthy of praise.

AYRT, I love the ambiguity in the characters. Someone said something one time about how a lot of the Succession fun is in the unsaid which I agree with. There’s very little exposition and business jargon is thrown at the viewer from day 1. My favorite pairing is Tom and Greg because I’m a sick fujoshi.

Yeah, basically scrotes imagine Kim to be a handmaiden. A smart one, somewhat likeable when you ignore how crazy she is, but still a handmaiden, a "ride or die" that will never call anything out. What's interesting with her character is that she was groomed to be this way by her mother, so it's not even internalized misogyny and she's not really a handmaiden, she has this internalized trauma from her upbringing thats pushing her to recognize Jimmy as someone like her mother, and she reproduces the dynamic.

I must admit it was smart on the writers part to explain it this way, because before we saw her childhood she had no legitimate reason to be as supportive to Jimmy as she was, but it's not like men don't write women like that all the time, completely self-sacrificial for no reason.

On a sidenote, this scrote who is happy when the baby gets kidnapped by Walter makes me want to go out and murder random men.

AYRT, I’m 90% sure it’s feet.

I want Tom to abuse Greg. I liked him in season one but the more Roylike he got, the meaner he started acting to Tom, so now I literally hate him. I don’t think Greg would be satisfied with being equal partners with Tom, he’d end up betraying him if he could, unless there’s actually a humanity to Greg that I just don’t see. They’re friends but he doesn’t like Tom as much as Tom likes him. The Nero-Sporus stuff is literally inexplicable to me and I’m not going to pretend that I can accurately predict the events of Succession because I can’t, so, really you never know. Greg was written as gay in the first two seasons and he spends the night with a male waiter at Tom’s wedding. I really don’t think they’ll ever have sex onscreen or anything, but maybe something vague and subtextual can be implied about their feelings for each other.

Roman and Gerri are very interesting to me. I’m really excited to see what happens to them this season. They have insane chemistry and they’re one of the writers’ favorite pairing so I’m sure they’re getting great moments.

I think the actor is doing a great job as him, which is why he seems like an interesting character to me. I like him. Though I do not think I will keep watching the show next season because Maeve actress left the show, and I liked their hate-love dynamic. Only Soldier boy can save this show for me, and Starlight with Kimiko. It's weird how a lot of people on social media hated Starlight this season when I in fact loved her actions and didn't like her during the previous seasons where she seemed to have a waifu-pandering personality.

he's a good villain. I enjoy his mix of overpowered psychopath and fragile little worm baby. dangerous combination.

aw maeve is really leaving? I didn't know that.
kimiko is so fun, I love her. it was a little weird when she let frenchie get shot seemingly because she was having too much fun slapping that guard to death. she could dispatch 3-4 guards easily without him getting shot so it seemed like false drama.
I agree with you that starlight was better this season.

No. 225240

For Homelander, I hate him, still, I find him so damn funny, with his puffy face and his love for milk, he is horrible, but that is good acting.
I hated what the Starlight actress did to her face, it's really sad, because she looked good before and it's irritating to not recognise a face in a new season of a tv show. But I liked her development in the last season. Also wish they would have kept Maeve.
My favourite character is Billy, but I just have a thing for Karl Urban, kek. I also like Frenchie and Kimiko and will keep on watching. The fact that they put Bobby Singer in it made me like the show even more. I also always like the music choices in shows where Eric Kripke is part of.

>I hated what the Starlight actress did to her face
oh yeah… I got used to it after a couple episodes but it was a pretty striking change, and she lost a lot of weight for someone who was already slim. if it's botox it must be impacting her ability to emote… christina ricci did that and doesn't regret it but she said it cost her some roles because she couldn't move her face lol

No. 225298

Homelander's an interesting character, one that you love to hate and love to watch. Though the season 3 finale was a letdown, it felt like the boys are back to the same song and dance with homelander. I really wish they depowered him or something.

Also I think it's interesting that nonnas like starlight this season when I've seen a lot of people (men mostly) say they dislike her this season for not putting up with their precious hughie's wannabe macho man shtick.

I haven't been able to feel anything since Lalo died.


I don't know if it was intentional on the part of the writers, but it's interesting how Kim is sort of the anti-Skyler: A female love interest who is endlessly accepting of the lead's crimes, and even encourages him. And it shows how bad that can be.
That said, I never was very into Kim. I found her less compelling and well-written, if sometimes more tolerable than Skyler.

I'll probably be watching that one about hunter moore because tbf anyone who's been blackmailed with nudes would relate a lot. I've had friends up on his awful site and it's dated now a days but at the time, it basically ruined your life and it was full of bs/lies.

Pros: As a hardcore Sandman fan I enjoyed it way more than I expected to. Its very faithful to the comic in general vibe, but also they will recreate entire scenes of dialogue or exact panel compositions from the comics. I get the impression everybody working on it was a fan too. The sfx and locations were great, it feels expensive. I made my bf watch it and he was super into it, though he never usually goes for fantasy and couldn't get into the books at all.
I thought Cain, Abel, desire, matthew the raven, Johanna, Gilbert were really great castings. They did the absolute best they could with Dream and although I would have chosen someone more scary instead of weird looking, he was super committed and it worked. His voice is perfect though.
I put the general slight layer of cringe over the whole thing down to the fact that it's a Neil Gaiman adaptation and that's just what his stuff is like.
Cons: I wish they'd done the black eyes thing more often for Dream, I missed that. I thought the actor for Lucienne was annoying, she talked like she was in a primary school play. The actor for Death was pretty good but not spectacular, although I can't really think of anyone else I would have preferred.

I started watching Silicon Valley right after so although it was a big change in mood, the focus on tech innovation in silicom Valley made it mesh excellently.

yeah this ending is something moids can't understand

on other hand in a way i guess it would have been morbidly hilarious if saul tried to weasel out of responsibility once again, like i get it that would have kept tv moids talking about this show to the end of the time about how it subverts the expectations, how artistic and cool and brave it was that they kept the bad guy being bad and the love didn't win in the end and blah blah blah

but i like that they went for emotional integrity instead of thinking about what would seem the best way to be subversive. i think this was actually in a way the braver way to go in a world where movies and tv is all about being edgy, shock value and SuBVerTIng tHe eXpeCtaTioNs. it is honestly refreshing to see a story to go in a more "traditional" direction, that the hero/antihero of the show actually does a good thing, love, honesty and emotional growth does win in the end, it is purifying in some way really. the ending made me sad but in a way it felt like taking a shower after long day, you feel clean, finally.

also i liked the bus scene with the prisoners. i thought it was really morbid, horrifying really that jimmy tried to let saul go but he will forever be surrounded by people who won't let that happen, like the scene made me anxious even, i liked it.

I liked the prison bus scene too, I know it was supposed to convey how he’ll never be able to escape his Saul persona no matter how much it haunts him, but I got a weird sense of solace that him being recognized like that in prison would likely give him benefits amongst inmates and ultimately make his sentence easier kek

Vidrel, it's the trailer.
I cannot recommend Paper Girls enough, it's like if Stranger Things wasn't written by hacks.
Four girls meet and are accidentally transported to the future, and have to fight a war they don't fully understand to get home.

All the characters were compelling and 3D. They manage to touch on a lot of issues without it feeling pandery at all. They do a lot of really cool, capable things, but you're reminded often enough that they're literally just ordinary 12 year olds in a fucked up situation. The villians strike the right balance between cartoonish and conceptually terrifying. The timeline is confusing enough to be a challenge for the characters but the story doesn't get bogged down in paradoxes or logic puzzles.
I just really love seeing tweenage girls have their stories told with compassion, as well as the future versions of themselves.

I strongly belive in TV piracy, so you can watch paper girls on Amazon if you have that, but it's also on hurawatch dot cc (sorry don't know what the policy on linking to streaming sites is?).

Breaking Bag was about a resentful teacher becoming more and more ruthless, BCS is about one lawyer scamming his way to success and one lawyer doing her best for justice, and it's also probably one of the most realistic law tv series.

Breaking bad itself has been having a sort of renaissance with the tumblr girlies as well, so it's just by association and timing i think.

I agree with almost everything you said, nona, and I'm also a long-time Sandman comics fan. Tom Sturridge has a great voice for Morpheus, but wew he's not really the best actor in the world, is he? Works better when he's just silently staring at the camera, but he doesn't have the gravitas necessary when he's moving around and talking outside of voiceovers. And I also wish they shelled out more effort and/or money to keep his eyes black the entire time.
I'm also having a hard time appreciating Lucienne, since Lucien was kind of smarmy and she's not really bringing that element of the character.
The Corinthian being added into a lot more of the story works better than I thought it would, and I had low expectations for the actor but he's actually doing a great job.
I also wish they had done more with John Dee's appearance. His whole story gave me nightmares when I first read the comic as a teenager, and the show's version of that story wasn't as terrifyingly hilarious. Similarly, I thought Despair should have been more gruesome.
Hopefully they get Delirium and Destruction right, they have one of my favorite relationships in the comics.

This past Friday I walked into the room and saw my mom watching this. It's a South Korean show about an autistic lawyer navigating a world that dislikes her seeing as though she graduated top of her class and passed the bar with a near perfect score no one would hire her initially because of being autistic. It's a cute show showing all the characters growth(I'm not a good explainer). The cases are interesting. You get some beautiful shots of Korea. The episodes are long at an hour and 20 minutes. I'd like to hear others views on it. It has no English dub on Netflix brand English subtitles if you like that which is why I'm surprised because usually my mom won't watch something in another language without English dub for so long.

Is watching any of the Marvel shows without any knowledge of the movies a good idea? I'm not interested in the MCU as a whole and have no plan getting invested in it since I hate the concept of "cinematic universes" in general (it's way too fucking big).

Buuuuut… some of the Marvel shows HAVE peaked my interest. WandaVision's concept in particular is really cool to me (witch woman creates a fake sitcomesque life after the death of her husband? Count me in), as well as Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel's.

However I'm holding myself back since I feel like I should have prior knowledge to ALL of the previous MCU stuff to understand greater context of the plots or I'll just be left scratching my head in confusion if Character A mentions Character B and starts talking about Event X.

Again, I have no plan into getting into other MCU stuff besides the three I mentioned above. So to the marvel nonnies here: is it a good idea for me to watch them without past MCU knowledge or nah?

No. 232848

Moon knight requires no real prior knowledge.

For Wanda vision it’d be good to see how their relationship develops over age of ultron, civil war, infinity wars and endgame.

Hawkeye the first avengers movie and, like, 30secs of endgame (all you need to know is that Hawkeyes family got disappeared for 5years and to cope he took on a vigilante personality and hunted down gang members and bad guys).

I hope so, so long as it isn't obvious/heavy handed, some winks and nods would be fun (like the fact that the only people to see the results of the vote were the maesters, and the fact that before the results were counted it seemed like Rhaenys had the most support)

Random but I suddenly thought its ironic modern shows try their hardest and are obligated to be woke and muh diversity but The Wire and Oz were normal and natural about it. Also Oz holds up well too. I didn't like the pilot at first but I grew to love it the more I watched. So many well known actors that were so hot when they were younger and its one of the only shows where the creators aren't afraid to show dicks on screen.

I first watched The Sopranos when I was 14/15ish and loved it then because I grew up on films like Goodfellas and The Godfather but I have much more appreciation for it now at 31. Like >>233920 said there's a lot of symbolism in it and hints of supernatural stuff and that completely flew over my head at 14, kek. The older I've got and the more I've matured, the more my opinion of certain characters and story arcs has changed too. It spurs on a lot of re-wataches.

I'm in the opposite position and want to know if I'll enjoy The Wire and if I should persevere with Breaking Bad. I got a couple seasons in on Breaking Bad (maybe more, it's been a long time since I watched it) but the pacing annoyed me. There was some payoff but overall it seemed quite slow to me and Walter and Jesse felt kinda two dimensional. I'd definitely recommend trying The Sopranos though, the pilot is a bit of an anomaly and season one has it's dull moments but give it time and it pays off. For me season two is probably my favourite, the plotlines from it were great. It's a damn good show in general though, the comedic tone might drop (think that was done on purpose though) but it explores a lot of concepts and is so much more than just a show about the mafia. Just don't watch the movie, it fucking sucks.

I thought The Wire definitely had a slower rhythm than Breaking Bad, certainly because it tries to be very realistic. It means no goofy yet believable actions by dumb mafiosi like in The Sopranos, and practically no originality or surprises in the way the episodes are filmed like in BB/BCS. I didn't like The Wire much because I thought that aside from the realism the show is rather plain and the story wouldn't have lost much if it had been told in a book. Of course there's a lot of people who will claim that it was the best show ever, but, unlike The Sopranos and BB, no one talks about The Wire today, which to me is a definite proof that it was the inferior show in the end

Lately I have been watching a UK TV show called Glow up which is a show about the best makeup artist. I normally like watching the previous season but this fourth season is a bit of a mess, it feels very "woke" and very on the nose with their diversity.

In the first episode the two contestants in the face-off had to create a reverse eyeliner look on identical models. One of the contestants ended up writting "Queer power 4eva" on their model's face and didn't even bother with an eyeliner look. Why bother applying if you can't even take a critique about your previous makeup look.

S4 was the weakest imho, and there was way too many elaborate characterizations and if I remember correctly, not a single "regular" makeup main challenge.

Has anyone watched the new Netflix Dahmer show? I’m seeing some commentary from twitter and it boils down to people thinking it’s extremely disrespectful to make a show about him.

No. 241923

Louis and Lestat actors seem to have a really nice chemistry so I'm definitely gonna watch for that
Haven't seen that one yet but a friend of mine whose opinions on movies and tv shows I really trust saw and really enjoyed it, from the purely storytelling perspective. Having read the statements from victim's families I feel like I can't bring myself to watching it myself though; I'm interested in true crime so it would be hypocrisy for me to say that it's unethical to tell these stories at all, but the moment someone who actually lived it speaks against a production, it crosses the line for me, ethically; same with anything about still living serial killers who killed for notoriety - it will only make them feel more right about having committed these crimes, and therefore is disrespectful for the victims. That for me would include documentaries too sometimes, like Don't Fuck With Cats, since all that dude wanted was clout, so here he has it.
Honestly I can't think of a good movie that would take the real life serial killer story and just straight up retell it as it was; the only good ones would be these that just take a bit of truth but fit it into entirely fictional stories.

No. 241924

I watched it, it's shot well and I think it did a good job in terms of narrative story telling while giving attention to the victims. Not to spoil but it specifically had an entire episode for one specific victim that no one really cared about at the time of his death. tbf, I'm glad they did that considering how at the time, literally no one cared, not nearly as much as the other victims, so tbf it felt respectful.
I think that films/shows that fetishize serial killers are disgusting and there are lots that glamorize it in a sense but the dahmer show isn't that.

tbh I think that it's important to make shows about them not just as a warning for people but also to understand the impact the deaths have on people. There's a lot of really good ones out there, especially on netflix, audrey and daisie (not a killer one) for example, or dear zachary (very impactful). Most of the big 'hollywood' movies like the recent one with ted bundy are just distasteful for me though.

No. 241952

I think the reason docs like Dear Zachary work so well is because the family and friends of the victim(s) are heavily involved. When it comes to Hollywood productions about true crime it gets really murky with involvement from those who were directly impacted by the crimes being referenced. This is also why Don’t F with Cats doesn’t work for me and came off as extremely distasteful. The victim and his family are barely featured in any way. If the victim’s family didn’t want to be included then that’s a good indicator they shouldn’t move forward with a production.

No. 241957

yeah 100%. Don't fuck with cats was pretty sensational and more focused on the people trying to figure it out rather than the victims themselves, and that's in part because the only reason he was really caught was due to them. I understand it's merits, but it does come off as distasteful.

BUT there are a ton of different shows/movies where the victim's families are at least compensated or involved in one way or another. Just thank your lucky stars there's no hollywoodesq movie about the toolbox killers (not toybox, but that guy is just as bad), because I bet you it'd be disgusting traumaporn for scrotes.

No. 241972

For me more problematic about Dont F With Cats is that Magnotta's dream was to be known, he tried being a model, tried applying to reality tv shows, no one cared for him and he escalated to that violent murder which finally gave him attention. Still, as gruesome as it was, up until certain point you wouldn't find many true crime podcasters/channels cover the case, probably because Magnotta is still alive and would love nothing more than to hear that people are talking about him. I bet now he's waking every day elated and accomplished knowing there's a highly rated, multiple episodes long documentary all about him; that was topping netflix charts for some time. It's basically rewarding him for killing Jun Lin.

I couldn't make it more than 3 episodes. Evan Peters is doing a weird lumberjack Canadian accent the whole time and I have no idea why. I know this takes place in Milwaukee but wasn't Dahmer from east Ohio? I even cross-referenced the accent he is doing with how Dahmer actually sounded and he had a pretty standard American accent.

Anyone watch the korean version of little women on netflix? I’m only three episodes in and visually, the show looks great but so far that’s the only thing it’s got going on. The plot is all over the place and gets way too messy with each episode I’m not sure if I should keep watching it

just started watching this and episode 1 was fucking amazing. it really managed to nail the vibe of the book and the story in a way that isn’t cheesy. i hope the rest of the series continues on like this. and it’s so gay which is what the movie was missing.

i was a bit nervous when i heard that they dropped louis’ original backstory to replace it with him being a pimp because in my mind that’s not that much better than being a slave owner, so i was wondering how they would portray it but i did appreciate at the end of the episode that louis confessed to the guilt and shame he feels for being a pimp and that his excuses to try and alleviate the guilt aren’t enough to erase the reality that he’s contributing to the suffering of women. it was unexpected but i appreciated it

I just finished the first two episodes last night. I have to say I really hate the actor for Lestat, he is so ugly and his voice sounds like Buffalo Bill's. Listen to him speak again and tell me he doesn't sound identical. I had to turn on subtitles because I actually found him difficult to understand at some points, he mumbles a lot. Also I found the gay scenes really corny and over the top. I just watched the movie with some of you playas and the contrast is really strong. There was this subtle tension in the movie that I'm just not getting in this version. It's as subtle as an explosion. I think the scene where Louis calls himself queer to mean gay was cringe and hamfisted. However I really like how since it's a show we have more time to explore the transition from human to vampire though and they did a great job with set and costume design so I will keep watching

wanted to like this show because a lot of men are angry about it, but it is just…not good.
I'm not familiar with the lead actress but she is, to be blunt, fucking awful in this. Maybe she's been better in other things. the scripts feels like it was literally feels like it was written by 5 misogynistic liberal guys who spend half their life defending feminist porn and one woman who wouldn't dare speak up to them.

The twerking scene is what broke me, not that they twerked but that they made the choice to have the screen filled up with shehulks ass for any amount of time. Who was that for if not scrotes with a giantess fetish? That was a choice they made, not to focus on her joyful expression or another second of her dancing with her idol but a close up of her ass… what’s the bet there’s a naked version tucked away on someone’s work computer? It just feels like I’m witnessing someone’s fetish wrapped in a mundane boring wrapper.

No. 244553

Agree on the bit where he used "queer" to mean "gay." That felt really anachronistic to me. Queer just meant "weird" back then.
I also didn't like the bit where a punch went through a guy's head. That was so corny, it felt like something straight out of a Sam Raimi movie. Like the way the brains hit the camera was so goofy and gratuitous. It wasn't scary at all, it just made me burst out laughing.

However I really like Sam Reid's performance, which kind of surprised me because I was so meh about him when I first heard that was who they cast. I liked that they gave him a French accent, and they capture they way Lestat alternates between flamboyant and unhinged really well. Also, while I'm not into him out of costume, I think Sam Reid is more attractive than Tom Cruise was in '94.

On the whole though, I love the show. I hope they eventually release it on Blu-ray, because I don't want AMC+ but I want to support the show.

Anyone watching Rings of Power? I've heard so much negative feedback on it that I expected to hate it, but I'm enjoying it so far, possibly more than House of the Dragon. Good sense of mystery and suspense and the acting isn't bad (apart from the extras). My main issue is that some of the actors just look like zoomers and don't have that ancient medieval look to them, which is a bit of a nitpick but it breaks the immersion. Galadriel is grating too.

same! I do like it however it feels a little on the nose with the evil vs good. Like almost too fantasy if you know what I mean, in acting.

Probably, but Mariana rejected Lister over and over and over. She was also embarrassed by Lister's nonconformity (she was mortified to be seen with Lister in public). She decided to marry Charles Lawton, she made her decision and even encouraged Lister to marry a scrote too. She doesn't actually understand Lister at all. While she might be right about Ann and Anne's relationship, it seems she doesn't know how to reflect on the relationship she herself had with Lister and doesn't seem to comprehend why Lister doesn't want to do the same as she did. The only reason Marianne doesn't even want Walker at Shibden, is just because that was her contingency plan when Lawton dies. She doesn't actually give a shit about Lister and I'm not sure if marrying scrotes for money and shitting on her for not being feminine enough is the kind of challenge Lister really needs.

Finally watched Breaking Bad and I have that thought about it, idk if it's weird but it stood out to me: even though it's about such a violent subject, there's no sexual violence and no excessive violence scenes for the shock value only. I feel like modern showrunners would definitely use the subject of drug and cartels to just direct and show some disgusting things that would add nothing to the plot, we see it so much in tv shows now just to "establish the grittiness and realism"; for example the unnecessary nudity and rape in Game of Thrones. And in Breaking Bad there's nothing like this, yet no one has any doubts that what we're watching is a dark story mean for adult audience. I've spent entire show stressing out about female characters, Skyler, Marie, family of Mike, that there's no way showrunners will shy away from the trope of hurting a significant other to strenghten a resolve of some male character, and yet they didn't do that. Same with any cartel scenes, that with so many ties prostitution has to drugs there will be something awful shown, but the furthest it went was showing that Don Eladio invited hostesses to his party, and after things transpired they were allowed to just go away free, despite being witnesses.
IDK maybe it's mildly autistic but I'm so glad to watch a tv series that shows one doesn't have to resort to violence agains women to have a dark and realistic story.

I totally agree nonnie, and even when shit does occur (like Walt trying to have sex with skyler when she has on that face mask or when he comes on to the principal) he just comes across as an animalistic moid and it’s not shown in some voyeuristic titillating way.
Despite flaws of older shows in how they depicted women at least they weren’t depicting them with the sole purpose of raping them or exposing the actresses naked bodies to male audiences. Getting very sick of modern shows treating women being violated as a source of entertainment. Much funner watch a bunch of scrotes killing each other and leaving women out of it.

I enjoyed parts of the last season, especially when Colin was the nightclub entertainment before he hit puberty. But it did feel kind of pointless in the end. I love Nadja to death, so almost everything she was involved in was great.
But I agree in general. It's lost some of its magic. I miss the LARPing nerds from the first season (and yeah, even Beanie Feldstein), I miss seeing other supernatural beings and creatures (which is why the nightmarket was one of the better episodes this season), and I miss learning more about their mundane lives and histories. Nandor's wives story arc wasn't as exciting as I thought it might be, especially since they got rid of all of them so quickly.

I didn't expect to love it as much, I was actually one of these people really skeptical about everything after initial info was released; said liberties, the casting… it all falls into place and the casting honestly is perfect; chemistry between Louis and Lestat is incredible and makes me feel like I'm back in my teenage years, heart fluttering as I read the books.

Ann Rice superfan I talked to was pissed (but still watching the show, because vampires) when they saw the reporter is old now because he didn't immediately drive 30 hours while listening back over his recordings with Lois to figure out where Lestat was buried and beg him to be turned into a vampire, which is what happened in the book?

It's comparable to The Walking Dead (also amc actually) where it strayed away from the original from the very beginning but ended up (until certain point) being an adaptation both fans of the comics and newcomers loved

I know I'm late to the party but I just watched True Detective Season 1 for the first time and really enjoyed it, I like that it was pretty short and sweet with a fairly straightforward plot, while still having a lot of pretty cinematography, interesting symbolism, and good performances to keep me engaged. The beginning gave me major Deadly Premonition vibes, so I was invested right away. I was hesitant about the two main characters at first but they have good arcs and a realistically fragile relationship (also I never thought McConaughey was attractive but oh boy do I get it now…tfw no troubled, cryptic, autistic cop bf, kek). Are the following seasons worth watching? Also, does anyone have any reccomendations for short (like, 10-ish episodes) dramas, especially thrillers or crime dramas?

As a book reader, I didn't expect to enjoy AMC's Interview with the Vampire as much as I did. I had serious doubts after seeing the initial news and pictures, but now I'm sold. Liked this Louis (much better than Brad Pitt's) and Claudia, and this Lestat almost made me forget about Tom Cruise's, he was mad charismatic. The chemistry between the main actors. Also enjoyed how they got rid of the pedo stuff with Louis and Claudia.
Now we wait for season 2…

What I don't get is that like, this is an original story? It didn't need to be the Addams family?
Morticia, Gomez and Pugsley are in like 2 episodes, and they're now magical creatures or something. Wednesday has visions of the future.

was expecting mediocre crap and was still disappointed. The acting was godawful with everyone but wednesday's actress, morticia, gomez, and the school's principle.

It doesn't even make sense, she constantly makes choices that are very not like her character (why would she care about saving anyone for example…).

The actor for Gomez didn't have enough charisma for me and his voice was so grating to me that hearing him attempt to talk romantically made me cringe so hard.. and the actress for Morticia looked more like a cosplayer to me than Morticia.

No. 261515

I've finished the series today, it honestly seemed pretty charming and had a good hook in the beginning. I think it works better if you do forget it's about the Addams family and just treat it like another Umbrella/Magic school with OCs, because they're so OOC. The thing is that the twist and mystery is very weak, it becomes very clear right after they introduce the mystery, and yet you have to watch her do and deal with the usual red herring crap for half the series. Any young adult novel trope you can recognize plays out the exact same way you'd assume from beginning to end. I guess it is supposed to be aimed at like a 10-13 audience, but I was still disappointed.

I didn't get why she was so rebellious against her parents either, she was always respectful towards her parents, not a permanent snarker. I guess it's supposed to be teen angst, but it's not only explored beyond the "I can't be perfect and don't wanna be a housewife like you mom"

No. 261521

Also not directly related to the series but as I was trying to look up the general reactions to the series, the main actress seems like a massive cringelord.

Somehow Wednesday wound up looking really plain next to her instead of them both being two extremes.

There are all kinds of classic horror and creepypasta monsters in the series. You wouldn't even really know it if it wasn't outright stated, as everyone's in their human form 99% of the time to save on special effects costs, which might actually be lamer than the story itself. The Addams family are a family of witches now too, they have psychic visions.

Both of these shows are amazing honestly. Physical is so raw and unhinged and while it gets a bit kooky, it shows the reality of EDs.

The characters are well developed and interesting even when they're rich, white assholes. It was so sad watching Rachel spiral while her idiot husband couldn't understand what's going on with her. And in the end she chose money over self respect and independence. She was a very relatable character for me, minus the billionaire husband part.

White Lotus really doesn't deserve the praise it's getting, especially the second season. In both you can tell it was written by a scrote, at least the first one had a few strong themes carrying it nonetheless; second one just falls flat completely. Tanya is so obviously written for the "funny" gays to quote online, it was the smallest surprise ever when I found out that the showrunner is a white faggot himself. Not even the comedy is good; it's hard to mix drama and comedy well and it just doesn't land well here, it's too uneven, like he tries to have comedy but is too afraid to actually commit to making it properly dark and absurd in every case except Tanya's, where the actress is just good enough to carry the show on her shoulders all by herself. But then with her being so absurd and everyone else having their characters and storylines written in a realistic way, the mood of the show is all over the place. The only solid part is the music, which is to be expected with this composer. Given the show's popularity I wonder what is it going to be like in the 3rd season without Tanya bringing in the absurdness. The concept actually has a solid potential so I genuinely wish there was someone better in charge of it

No. 264708

thank you, everyone was calling this show the greatest thing ever and i can't understand why, I'd argue the first person was even worse, cause it beat you on the head with its social commentary and didn't allow the characters to be anything more the caricatures

No. 264712

Yeah it was painfully on the nose, but ultimately having seen both seasons I've realized that personally I prefered having this one established social commentary theme tying all of these different characters together as one cohesive storyline approached from various angles and ultimately logically leading up to the season finale's death, as cringy as this whole RICH AMERICANS IN HAWAII BAD? was; and in 2nd season there really was nothing except americans having extramarital sex; and final death felt completely separate from every other plotline, and the characters were caricatures just as much. I guess it comes down to pretty actors and pretty locations being enough for general audiences to be entertained enough to rate the show around 8/10?

No. 269191

I found the portrayal of the Addams confusing. its like they couldn't really decide if the Addams world was full of psychos or not. Like Wednesday's morals/ethics are highly inconsistent. She's super violent and scary when it's supposed to impress someone (even just the audience), but is also against violence and crime and will go on a righteous crusade to put a stop to it when it serves the story. Like why WOULDN'T Wednesday want her dad to be a killer?

No. 271272

I didn’t like the first one by the end because it didn’t seem like the writers understood the story they were telling… if that makes sense. Like I’m pretty sure you were supposed to root for the wrong people or maybe no one, and mostly ignore everyone who got fucked or just not care. And the stereotypes made me roll my eyes but I guess that was supposed to be funny? I expected a subversion there somewhere but it never happened, they just stayed stereotypes. Without being specific and spoiling that was my general impression.
Didn’t watch the second season.

Just starting watching season 4 and I was immediately surprised that they had a they/them girl and an ugly moid in a dress who claimed to be genderfluid because he likes make up. Definitely seems like some of the contestants this time were chosen to be more "diverse". I mean every season was diverse with people from different backgrounds and sexuality but this season has 2 gender specials. And yeah that contestant was super cringe, this seasons quality of the contestants was low. I hope next season will be better

The only struggle with Voyager is inconsistent characterization because of all the different writers wanting to go in different directions, and TNG had that problem sometimes too. There's probably some misogyny involved for the people who really hate Voyager if they liked TNG.
The bigger slapfest I see is TNG vs Deep Space Nine, because DS9 is basically a completely different genre of show that appeals to different people.

I thought everyone in the show looked bad for one reason or another, mostly to do with styling. But he's so horrifically ugly it feels like a misogynistic crime to pair him up with catherine zeta jones who looks like a supermodel next to him. I wanted to gag at their zero chemistry scenes where they were supposed to kiss and be lovey dovey. He looked like a legit monster.

What started as a series about a fucking crazy ass stalker is now some murder mystery where it feels like he’s not even the villain anymore, this also happened with 13 reasons why, like just end the series after the story has been told, prolonging it to bring in more money with a weak story is just annoying.

No. They completely destroyed the emotional core of the story which made the last of us so good. As typical with Hollywood whoever is writing this is afraid of feeling honest emotions so every single true bond that the characters have in the game have been re-written as to destroy them.

Also seems they felt like what was missing from the game was a graphic scene of female exploitation. Now we can see a female character which originally had a dignified death be humiliated and assaulted right before her death! How nice!

It’s kinda crazy how the general public is so oblivious to how common steroid use really is. If you look at the top 30 fastest 100m sprint times, only Usain Bolt has tested negative, so does that really mean only Usain Bolt is natural and everyone is cheating? No, everyone is doping at the highest level of almost every physical sport. It’s just that people aren’t aware of it. IMO, actors and social media influencers are more egregious about the PED issue than athletes as they’re on tour or on press lying that they’re natural and just eat “Chicken, rice and broccoli”. I know they contractually obligated to say so but still.

Has anyone watched Severance? I saw the first 30 seconds of the first episode in a YouTube video and went to watch it. Ended up binging the entire thing. It’s not incredibly fast paced, but it really keeps you engaged. It’s sci-fi/mystery, but I recommend going into it blind if you’re even the least bit interested. The first episode is on Apple for free but I’m sure there are torrents for the remaining episodes. My only real gripe so far is that the dark scenes are just too dark. There’s only short points of high contrast, but they aren’t lingered on enough and look accidental. It feels like watching a tv that’s facing direct sunlight. I want to sperg so bad, but my only friend without a pea sized attention span towards TV doesn’t know how to download shit.

I’m the anon who first brought up Severance and I posted my reply because I had just finished the last episode of the season. I have not been this hyped at a finale episode in a long time. The moment the “Ms. Cobel” slipped out I started losing it. Also I’m so glad the baby was ok and also that Irv didn’t wake up while driving and crash or something. They really pumped up the dread with those things. I also think the insight into the outies lives the final two episodes gives some interesting food for thought regarding the innie personalities. I’m hoping the September season two release rumors are true!

I’ll level with you: Adam Scott looks ragged as shit and I don’t think it’s on purpose. I wasn’t sure if I was being hard on his “outie” acting because of it, but I still ended up enjoying the show anyway. I’ll save my follow up 2X comments for another thread kek.

I haven't watched Breaking Bad since it aired (I was in high school at the time), I remembered it being silly and dramatic but very entertaining and engaging. I was hesitant to start Better Call Saul but I just finished Season 4 and holy shit it's great. I honestly think it's better than Breaking Bad – the character motivations are more nuanced and the women are so much more well-written. Oftentimes a scene or episode will end and I'm confused in a good way, left wondering what a particular character was thinking based on their reactions. They feel like real people sometimes in that they aren't always easy to read. A great example is Hamlin – my opinion on him changed so many times because I couldn't quite pin down what he wanted from Jimmy or his firm. Plus there's plenty of Mike Ehrmantraut, who was always my favorite.

Honestly the story gets better as the show goes on and finds it's identity that being after Season 1. Once you hit Season 6, it starts to seem as if David is done with the show. Personally when I binge watch it, I stop after X dies because the story becomes kinda lame. I didn't care for the focus on Krycek nor the black alien goo. Scully's treatment becomes worse as the show goes on. The writer's clearly start hating Gillian the older she becomes because they reoccurringly compare her to younger female characters. Her in-show pregnancy made little sense and the explanation as to how she became pregnant is infuriatingly disgusting. I lost complete respect for Chris Carter upon finding out.

And apparently neither does he because he refuses to just quit the business and get a real job.

On season 6 now and it's fun when it doesn't take itself too seriously. The overarching plot is slowly losing me and Scully's treatment, her abduction, disease, pregnancy and infertility are all handled so fucking bad I want to beat up Chris Carter. With season 5 they really started hamfisting the message that a woman who can't conceive is defective. It just doesn't make sense for that to be her arch. It's lazy writing. But if you can ignore that, monster of the week episodes are still fun.

I've been watching Malcolm in the Middle's 1st season, and I'm so in love with the series. I don't really know why, since I find it hard to stomach series or movies that focus on scrotes. I don't feel that way with Malcolm tho.
I wonder if it is because the male characters are all kids, except for Francis and Hal. And even then, Hal's character is kind of parodic, and Francis has that "big brother" role that makes him endearing. I heard that the series start to go to shit once the kids grow up (aka, when they become teenagers?), which makes me sad. I already feel sad that Malcolm's teacher won't appear anymore, same with Francis' hot black friend.
Would like to hear what other anons think about the series and if it's true that the series goes to shit in the later seasons.

No. 280514

It's one of my favorite shows ever. The family is very relatable to me and the episodes are almost always hilarious. The only reason why I never watched Breaking Bad ever since the first episode got released is because I just can't unsee Hal.

No. 280521

I just started rewatching the series a few days ago! I grew up watching so it’s very nostalgic and relatable to me, as an adult now I sympathize a lot with Lois. I agree it’s not as good in later seasons and suffers the sitcom thing where stories become more and more ridiculous but there are still things to enjoy and the relationship dynamics/comedy are worth it. And while the male characters do have their scrote moments sometimes it’s always projected that they’re the idiots for it which is probably why it’s easier to stomach when it’s self aware.

No. 280527

It's one of my favorites too! I rewatch it every year. Wouldn't say it goes to shit though, yeah maybe some episodes aren't the best and can get too ridiculous but in overall I still could enjoy later seasons. The writing is great, the show didn't age poorly imo, I appreciate it that it can sort of raise certain issues but it's always comedic and light-hearted and is never preachy and patronizing to the viewer. I like that Lois and Hal actually have loving and passionate relationships (as opposed to some tv couples where spouses are passive aggressive to each other and dad's ass is constantly glued to the armchair) and that everyone really cares for each other deep down but it doesn't turn into especially sentimental and cheesy scenes. I also like that Malcolm, despite being "the smartest", is still an overthinking dumbass when it comes to relationships and is not "the most adequate" or something because he's a typical negativistic and conceited teen. Basically, everyone's flawed in their own way but have their unique strengths, too, and although personality traits and quirks are exaggerated for comedic purposes, it's done in a pretty organic and non-annoying way. Guess the time to rewatch has come, hehe

Physical and Maid are very good shows in my opinion (although they're a little triggering sometimes lol). Any shows in a similar vein as them? Leading woman dealing with an imperfect life as a woman, having serious issues but moving forward. I did not hear about these when they came out so clearly I'm not tapped into the right channels.

No. 281472

It's my favorite family-focused sitcom ever along with KotH. I don't care what anybody says, I love the later seasons. In fact I think the season(s) when Francis still works at the ranch might be my favorite era of the show. I like their dynamics more when they're older, but even if you disagree with that, later seasons are still funny. There are also other memorable characters that are introduced later that you may like.
Even now that I'm more radfem-aligned I don't mind the boys' scroteyness, because like other nonny said, they're clearly portrayed as the idiots and as being in the wrong, and they usually end up regretting their behavior for one reason or another, whether because their conscience makes them feel guilty or because they get an appropriate punishment for it. The worst one out of the three main sons is Reese, but always getting his comeuppance as he's usually presented as an antagonist of sorts, sometimes showing a more sensitive side, being dumb, and maturing a bit in later seasons, makes him more tolerable as a character.
I also love how the parents love each other unconditionally (which is also a reason why I love KotH) and how Hal is more in love and devoted to Lois than she is to him, and he is the submissive and passive parent while she is nearly always portrayed as a badass, so that helps a lot to balance things out too. She's the one who imposes order in the family while he is the sensitive one, usually on TV it's the opposite. The boys also love their family despite being so chaotic and cruel to each other, it's kind of heartwarming. Francis is a perverted scrote at first but then matures a lot, and settles, having a loving relationship with his wife, and frankly I find his relationship with his mother absolutely hilarious.

I tried watching secret diary of a callgirl and stopped halfway through season 2. The main character is just so unlikeable, and her best friend (Ben I think his name is?) is even worse. Belle/Hannah needs to remind the audience of how she's NLOG all of the time. Ben is clearly still in love with her and is always bitching about his gf who he should just break up with but doesn't for some reason. I might circle back to it at some point though

I didn't play the game, but that episode was the basic post apocalyptic zombie stuff, it didn't need a warning if you have seen stuff like The Walking Dead or other movies/shows based on that genre before. For me it's one of the most realistic scenarios of a world without rules, where you fight to survive and people with bad intentions have the power to decide things.

Here for you.
> Grown men found it necessary to bring attention to a 13 year old girls period not once but twice. It’s typical male shit that every moid does when you tell him to imagine a women in the apocalypse. Well how do those mystical, silly women deal with their period.
> age gape relationship with a nearly adult 13 vs 17
> adding in the entire Victoria secret dialogue and panning the camera to show Ellie’s reflection in it. Making sure the audience got the message in a way that wasn’t age appropriate for an adult audience with characters who should be young girls.
> David’s entire section was changed and added. He’s suddenly a pedo. The violence the whole episode was extreme against Ellie, but David’s was always partially covered or off screen. We only had to watch her suffer the violence clearly. They took out the entire zombie part and completely let the story in the episode fall apart. Why was it an ear and not something like a finger? They had the bodies somewhere else are they eating the heads? Where did all the people in the resort go? They didn’t hear any of this? How did Joel just walk into the bodies and none of the 50 other people did? They also did a piss poor job at showing them being deep in it since there were three bodies and everyone I know who didn’t play the game called me confused. The entire scene with Ellie at the end is also shot from over David’s side and perspective. We watch her from mostly his view. Not hers. This is typically male fantasy wank shit and it shows. It wasn’t properly labeled with a warning at the beginning and was entirely unnecessary to the story.
> that weird kiss with Tess for no reason with the zombie.
How about some more shit from the games:
> both of Ellie’s love interests die in the game in a kill your gays trope.
> Abby essentially gets assaulted on the boat by her drunk ex and it’s never addressed. They fight. It gets physically. They have sex while she clearly looks uncomfortable the whole time.

They completely, sloppily and plot hole heavy rewrote David’s part so he’s a raging pedo and tried to play out a male revenge fantasy with the death at the end.

There was so much wasted time and unfinished plot lines.

Try Shameless (same producers as Maid), the oldest daughter is one of the "main" characters (all siblings have a season that revolves more around them) and I enjoyed it very much. There's a fakeboi season but it's toward the end, I mostly skipped that.

I loved "Shining Girls" - it's about a murder victim that survived the attack.

> no clicker shows up. Ellie takes off at the news he knows.
(Rather than clicker that David shoots proving the whole time he had a second gun and could have attacked her but chose not to. It’s why she goes with him later. No zombie standoff and fight to get out and then the everything happens for a reason speech)
> they show up looking for Ellie she takes horse and tries to draw them away.
(Rather than gathering attention she fires blindly at them, pissing them off, but not taking the opportunity to actual hit and kill one of them, why have her shoot at all?)
> beanie man knocks her off horse, she’s unconscious. (No run and no fighting. She’s done.)
> cult men want to shoot her. David shows up and shoots in the air and then tells them to drag the horse and search till they find Joel.
(Rather than David catching Ellie and her trying to stab him the first time, in game he tells her, “Relax I’m keeping you alive here.” We get none of that here. He’s weird and off putting but not in that I’m turning on the charm and am actually a shit bag way if that makes sense.)
> ellie wakes up in cage (no arms on table in kitchen. It’s an ear under the table? Can’t have gore just implied attempted sexual violence I guess.)
> ellie doesn’t eat the food. No real talking happens. David kind of rants at her manically that he’s a pyscho who’s always been edgy and she his only equal. He puts his hand on hers and there’s a clear heavy implication here. She breaks his finger cue. Tell them my name is Ellie. The little girl who broke your fucking finger. (Ellie in game eats food. David attempts to convince her it’s survival and neither of them are bad guys. No weird rant about psychos and equals.)
> beanie man and David come to kill Ellie and eat her. She fights back. Bites David reveals infection. Then in their surprise meat clears beanie man in the next.
> Ellie escapes and runs into lodge. No weapons so she grabs a burning log from the fire. Tries to chuck it at David setting the lodge on fire. David rants about how he’s “decide to teach her and she’ll learn” etc. extremely clear what he means
(David doesn’t call group or more men. No line about we’re going to find her and kill her.)
> ellie stabs him in abdomen and then moments later David jumps her and attacks her on ground. (Ellie in game is fighting and fleeing from cult people wondering what the fuck is wrong from them before this part in game for reference. No creepy I’ll teach you dialogue. Just obsession with how she’s not turning.)
> he grabs her pants and tells her the fighting is the part I like the most after he’s been harming her on the ground for a minute. Clearly meaning he wants to assault her.
(In game he instead chokes her, “you don’t know what I’m capable of.)
> ellie hits him with blade
> ellie hits him lots of times with blade, she eventually has to flee building on fire.
(No Joel pulling her away.)
> outside Joel comes up from behind, he’s seen no cult people? (Which would make sense if Ellie killed them, but she didn’t in the show.) Just the three bodies hanging in boat house or whatever it is. He approaches Ellie from behind. She freaks out. He hugs her and says it’s okay babygirl.
(Instead of him coming to save her and pulling her off David’s dead body)
(the scene with Joel is pretty much the same where he tortured the guys, but I think the game they’re tied up and in the show they’re duct taped which I thought was kind of a weird choice.)
(There’s also a derail scene with the cult people where we’re made to see the wife and daughter of the man who Joel killed and we have to watch David slap the girl to drive home his religious daddy cult vibes, but there’s not really a point or conclusion and it goes nowhere. It felt really pointless.)

To be fair, he IS creepy in the game and there ARE sexual implications. They're just not as explicit as in the show. The other cult members refer to her as David's newest pet. As he mounts her in the final fight he says "you can try begging". The show butchered this chapter for sure, but the SA part was present in the game.

There is one comment made when Joel is torturing the man. He says Ellie’s alive because she’s David’s new pet. The point was the episode was trash and exploitive and not put together as well as the section in the game. It was one comment, don’t misrepresent it either.

The cult calls her pet one time. Even in the dialogue you linked. Your screenshot doesn’t change that and again that was my point. Not that the game didn’t have any but that it turned into male wank shit on the show. Sorry you can’t read

No. 281812

Totally agree! I only played the game and I don't think it was done in poor taste there. Just an obvious power dynamic which between men and women is usually sexual in nature. Moreso than to just have sex with her he wants full control over her bodily autonomy. The fact that she's actively fighting against that is what keeps his obsession going. He's not just there to capture Ellie and rape her. He wants to break her spirit and show her who's in charge. His boss fight made my heart race as it purposefully strips away the player's power by making Ellie stealthily sneak around which lets the player feel a lot weaker instead of having it be an action focused fight scene.

With the perfect ending of her stabbing him over and over until Joel comes to tell her she's safe now and they'll get out of here. I especially like how the camera is fully focused on Ellie and what she's feeling instead of David's body getting mutilated. The player should be pretty desensitised to violence at this point anyways and the scene is not about David's demise. It's about Ellie's victory. Just so satisfying to finally watch her triumph over this creepy old dude who thought he could have any power over her.

Also sorry if I'm praising the game too much. I played it when I was 12 and thought it was awesome the game would also let you play as Ellie. A character I could much more relate to than a guy in his late 30s.

No. 281816

Okay, I didn't say they keep calling her that over and over again I just said the game insinuated the same thing as the show multiple times, just in a more subtle, appropriate fashion. Others in the thread are saying the cell scene and the dialogue was completely different which is false and the point of my screenshot.

Calm down and read please. The game does not make it a side point, if you didn't get the SA undertones from that whole chapter you are willfully ignorant. It was always about that, especially considering Ellie's reaction and how she acts after that chapter. I'm not defending the show, I'm just saying the show didn't exactly pull the rapey cannibal part out of nowhere.

No. 281827

I didn’t miss it. The point was the show did a shit job of doing it. It turned something that was well done and emotional enough into absolutely garbage. They changed the entire archetype of David and cut out zombies in a zombie show to show us an unrelated teenage girl getting slapped. It would only be written by a male director if you refuse to call it moid shit sorry for your moid brain I guess. You get the episode was shit but refuse to admit they did it because they wrote with one dick in their hand and that’s my fucking point. I never said the undertones weren’t there.

Worst part is Riley is the same age as Ellie in the game. The game is 100 x better than that garbage show. Neil druckman cant write shit and he fired his best writers (including stealing work from a woman) and this is how we got TLOU2, and the HBO show. I hate the people who only watch the show without playing the game because it's just worse.
