have you seen The Office, or New Girl? if not you should add them to your list, shitloads of episodes and high rewatchability. really good dumb comedy. same as Brooklyn 99.
from what I remember The Mindy Project was a good watch as well.
agree withe attention span thing 100% I've had the office on repeat, my adhd wont tolerate much else.

Just binged watched The Society on netflix and it’s not a good show i tend to hate teen drama and those types of shows but it was actually very entertaining and the show actually made me feel for the characters? Which normally happens with really good shows like game of thrones and such, i would def recommend it. The second season of The Rain also just came out which is also a show i’d highly recommend.
I watched it too! I usually hate teen dramas (still hate-watch riverdale tho, while pulling my hair out of cringe at each episode) but I really enjoy post-apocalyptic and "kids on their own" type of shows.
Tried to watch The Rain but I found the acting so bad and that one main girl thats supposed to be a teenager looked like she was played by a 30 year old actress.
the only historical jdrama i have ever watched was ooku the inner chambers. it's based on a manga
the synopsis: The plot follows an alternate history of early modern Japan in which an unknown disease kills most of the male population, leading to a matriarchal society in which the Ōoku becomes a harem of men serving the now female shōgun.
there's also an earlier movie version that follows a different arc/main character and shogun.
Nobunaga Concerto is a historical j-drama.
Synopsis: A boy from our modern day ends up in a time slip to feudal Japan. He swaps places with the real Nobunaga.
It’s good if you don’t know much about Japanese history. The protagonist has no clue either so you learn with him. Also Oguri Shun is an iconic actor so that’s a plus.
just curious, did you enjoy Bandersnatch ?
also who here watched The OA and has similar stuff to reccomend ? I loved that shit.

Thank you so much for mentioning this. I've just finished the first episode and I'm already going to binge on the second and third one.
It's so well done. From the people on the top trying to downplay the damage at the expense of innocent common folk, to the claustrophobic halls and pathways within the plant. The acting is great, the gloomy setting, the story.
Also, I'm sort of excited for the newest and last season of Mr. Robot. I know it's a meme by this point but I like it regardless.
Then there's also The Terror but I haven't got to watching it yet.
If anyone has some similar shows to recommend, please do.

Netflix monthly choices
A girl is gang raped in a bus based in a real story it follows the police officers dealing with the case
Korean drama about the life of people before and after becoming police officers dealing with drugs prostitution and corruption
BBC dark comedy about a man getting over his wife’s death 10/10 best comedy I’ve seen this year
Dead to me
A real estate agent investigates the murder of her husband
I can’t say much else about the plot but if you are on your mid twenties is a great watch
Oh forgot to add
Dogs of Berlin
Police drama that deals with racial and political issues in a corrupt Berlin after the misterious death of a football player
A bit on the smut side but that’s expected from the director despite the compelling story
watched the 3 episodes that are currently out just now, i really liked it, very harrowing but well done. nuclear power/things gone awry has really interested me since i was a child and this was very up my alley.
very unrelated but Good Girls is also a really good series (currently season 2 is airing, renewed for season 3), it's about 3 suburban soccer moms robbing a grocery store to help their various financial struggles but they end up getting tangled up with a gang.
other series i've recently seen and enjoyed not mentioned in this thread are Dark, Killing Eve (season 2 currently airing too) and Santa Clarita Diet.
Oh man i loved the OA, i honesty cant think of anything similar. But if you haven’t seen it i recommend Dark it’s confusing and interesting like the OA and the second season is coming out soon
Is anyone excited for Euphoria on HBO? it looks really good, i don’t like zendaya as an actress but the show seems interesting.

Real love on Netflix it’s like lolcow but IRL it’s hilarious
I started watching Good Girls like today. This Rio (or whatever is his name) guy makes me nostalgic about the time I hooked up with a 19 yo brazilian guy who told me how he got his ribs broken by brazilian cops and he was also covered in tattoos.
Watching this show and the show Queen of the South really makes me crave some latino dicking, shame we dont have that here in Europe.

I started watching WHAT/IF on netflix and… its painful to watch. Besides Anna, the characters are so poorly written and one-dimensional, the acting is bad and I get that they wanna summon that neo-noir feel but it just ends up corny.
Still gonna try to finnish it though because I wanna know what happens kek.
most streaming sites are shit.
sorry to hear about your internet connection, I wish I knew some decent sites.
I haven't used Popcorn Time in a long time but even with a shit internet connection, I had no problems watching a 2h movie on it, so maybe try that?

Thanks anons, I was able to get one to work! I’m going to try to catch up for tonight’s episode.
Halfway into the third episode I just had to pause it and explain who nemu was to the person I watched it with, because even though it's amazing the comment by >>32898
was rattling around in my head so much I could barely concentrate.
Curse you op
what are your opinions on Campbell and Elle ? Im so sad they turned him into an abusive
psycho, they could have been such a power couple.
All those dead puppers :(

for u, my fellow Chernobyl gals
kek, noice >>33673
Me too.That scene with the cute doggo who was just happy to see the young soldier and he had to shoot him, the sound of the dog whimpering was too much. I had to take a long pause.
Apparently, I'm a filthy normie for feeling sorry during the ep4. There were lots of comments on how the story with those three soldiers dragged on for too long and the scene in the village was just a cheap emotional stunt, but I thought it was a nice reminder that the victims
were not only human.Also, those 90 seconds were so well done. It was a real cinematic experience.
I'm looking forward to the fifth episode but at the same time, I'm sad that it's going to be the last one.

I really liked One Day At A Time on Netflix until they started the whole non-binary shit with Elena's girlfriend. It got cancelled anyway. Is there anything similar with a 'female run household' kind of sitcom? I liked seeing the non-nuclear family.

I really like the new Spike Lee "She's Gotta Have it"! The constant sex-posi libfem bullshit was annoying and Nola Darling just seems to be a fantasy of the ideal girl Spike Lee would like to fuck but the directing was amazing!
I think the second series was much less cringe than the first.
It's ok junk television for when I want to turn my brain off, even if sometimes it smacks you in the face with heavy topics. I wish it would just stick to the lighter topics.
How on Earth does it even have a second season? The book ended ambiguously and the TV show should have stayed a miniseries.
Straying away from the source material never ends well, GoT season 8 is proof of that
Anyways, what i wanted to say is that all this woke-episode stuff feels really forced and awkward to me… Writers need to learn to do their stuff.
I like vaguely dystopian tech stuff. My favourite shows are probably Mr.Robot and Person of Interest.
I forgot Black Mirror even existed until I heard about Miley Cyrus covering a Nine Inch Nails song in one of the new episodes. As an avid NIN fan I got a hearty chuckle, thinking it would be utter shit, but I actually enjoyed the parody with the lyrical change. I thought about watching just that episode, but from what you've said seeing as it's a newer one, I might not enjoy it at all.
Well, I think I'll bite the bullet eventually.
It's been on a decline since the first season ended. June should have been put on the wall by now, but then there would be no show and no more money.>>34594
Totally agree. That's why I stopped watching GoT in season 4 or something lmao
I am actually learning to code! Started a week ago so like…its too early to say anything but I've been working/studying every single day for a couple hours (learning Python) and the summer's here so I'm hopefull!
Still don't know how that will make me find a cute introvert hacker boy untouched by chan culture but one can always dream…
Eh, that's what I expected tbh… It's pretty sad but tbh even if there magically was a decent hackerzboi out there I probably wouldnt be his type at all.
I wish these were the 90's. No trannies, no 4chan, porn culture wasnt so prevalent and I'd be more likely to be some hackerzboi's type. eh..
On the subject of women and hackers, I'm on episode 3 of Mr.Robot and while I love the show, all the female characters are so poorly written. They all need some kind of saving, they all "keep chosing aweful men", they're one-dimensional… Except that hacker chick who is supposed to be portrayed as batshit crazy and incredibly annoying.
I wish that one day I meet my programming gf so it's comforting to see that you exist.
A lot of times in the news, what was called a woman was in fact a troon who's a programmer. Women in tech exist but they're still rare to find, let alone (actual) lesbians.
File: 1560328046509.png (143.27 KB, 300x499, PQ2_Futaba_Sakura.png)
Omg filthy code gives me hives, maybe we could make a thread or even discord for woman coding, the type that wouldn't accept troons. I would really be interested in getting to know some more woman in coding.
Please please if anyone makes one let us know!
On another subject, I follow a blogger who posts a lot about reality tv and reality tv never appealed to me so I never watched any of it. However, the wild shit she mentions makes me curious because it just sounds so wild?
Anyways is Vanderpump Rules worth giving a look if you're usually not into that sort of stuff?
It was one of those shows that is just so over the top and nasty but you just have to know how the plot is going to work out so I kept watching. Also Sax is just my dame oyaji type.
Quite the ride, too bad SyFy canceled it.
I will give a shot in making it then later when im at home
Never done one so might not be perfect

This show is absolutely horrifying and triggering. The people praising only seemed to concerned with Zendaya, the composition, and how "realistic" everything is. Well, nope, nothing besides the aspect of anxiety is realistic. Everything else - drugs, sex, infidelity, transgenderism, porn, etc, etc - is just glorified.
Sam Levinson and Drake thought just bc they copped Zendaya that they did something with this. TLDR: I don't recommend watching this unless your tuning in for a good shock factor.

Before it came out I heard people being hyped and saying "See Riverdale, this is how teen shows are done".
Now that it's out, I've heard it's way worse than Riverdale.
File: 1560791686610.jpeg (16.06 KB, 360x223, D8RJRNGXUAAk7c3.jpeg)
Yeah it's pretty depressing, depending on how you look at it. Zendaya's character, Rue, talks of how she became a druggie. There are situations of rape and the characters are all so…stupid. Just think of all the horrible shit you can think of crammed into one episode.

>>36241>barely 2 minutes in
psych diagnosing what looks to be a 5 year old with signs of ocd, adhd, generalised anxiety disorder, and bipolar
what the fuck lmao
I'm not going to watch Euphoria because it seems pretty bad but I've read the lipstick alley thread about the first episode and I've read about one scene in an upcoming episode with 30 dicks on screen, is this a meme or a dumb rumor?>>36293
lmfao does her parents have Munchhausen by proxy and went doctor shopping for her? That would make an interesting plot point tbh.
The writer doesn't understand the hate for Skyler either. I think its the viewer's fault for sympathizing way too much with Walt.
Don't date a man who hates Skyler White, it's an obvious sign he's a sexist piece of shit.
I really loved BB when I first watched it, but after recently re-watching it I just couldn't enjoy it like I used to. The show is always trying to show Walter being cool and a bad ass when really he is an abusive
loser going through a mid life crisis who would rather put his family's lives in danger than admit he needs help. It's such a male power fantasy show, that I just can't enjoy it anymore. BCS is better at making you sympathize with the characters but it's waay more boring.
>>36898>his wife was potrayed (annoying, needy)
Never came across like that to me. I think people who hate her are just too stupid/inattentive to comprehend the theme of the show.>>36922>The show is always trying to show Walter being cool and a bad ass when really he is an abusive loser going through a mid life crisis who would rather put his family's lives in danger than admit he needs help.
I mean he did do some cool stuff every now and then but the show was pretty clear that he was the latter. Walt explicity said so in the finale.
I'm more annoyed at some of Jessie's story arcs and those episodes where half the runtime is just spent on him getting high and messing around in his house. His moral alignment also seems to adjust to whereever is convenient for the plot at the time.
I stopped watching it like the episode poussey died
bc it made me so sad and I couldn't imagine watching it on without her. like lbr no one cared for piper lol. do tell us if it's good though, might pick it up then, really miss the early seasons!
anyone here watching the new season of Dark? I found it bit hard to follow at first bc of how long ago I watched the 1st season and how complicated keeping track of timelines is kek but I really liked it! I know people compare it to stranger things but imo it's better. can't wait for the 3rd season, really looking forward to the resolutions!
File: 1561794437133.jpg (68.48 KB, 930x574, 66296291.jpg)
Yes! I really enjoyed season 5 and thought the whole prison riot was very thrilling. Season 6 seemed more like a filler with its new characters and premise, but it was fun nevertheless. I think this final season will have lots of fan service and give us closure for all the characters we love. I am excited!

Does anybody actually watch Lucifer?
I really liked the source material, but I read it a long time ago.
Judging by how many seasons it got, people must enjoy it, but looking at the screenshots it just seems kinda shitty to me? Maybe it's due to the fact that they picked such an ugly actor to play Lucifer. He looks nothing alike as well.
I tend to enjoy most DC/Vertigo content though so I would probably eventually get around to checking it out.
But I want to know your opinion. Is it even remotely good?
File: 1562019758538.gif (626.02 KB, 500x281, unit02.gif)
second this, I'm hesitant to watch. I actually liked the original dub.
It's nothing at all like the comics.
But it's fun if you like crime solving shows with interesting casts that interact well.
File: 1562105567053.png (149.62 KB, 277x738, NRvwkI1.png)
you say this like the majority of lolcow won't turn out to be horny moms that watch shitty media to get their fix
OML I just skipped through the entire episode, and watched important bits. Dunno why ppl are saying this show is groundbreaking. Sure, it's entertaining, but it really is corny as hell.
Anyways, I will no longer be watching bc Hunter Schafer confirmed that his character and Zendaya's are going to have a romantic arc, since his character doesn't know what a healthy relationship is. Z's character is a druggie, tf you mean y'all are gonna be healthy together??
Not only that, it's apparent that the other female characters seem to only care about men, appearances, and sex. This show was clearly written by a man.
Hard disagree. I love Robin and Alexei (it was a crime that not only he got murdered, fucking Hopper didn't even let him watch his goddamn Looney Tunes in peace
), but it doesn't change the fact that this season is unnecessary. The TV series should have ended after the first or second one. How many times monsters from the other side can attack Hawkins? It felt stale by the time I started watching the third season. The second one wrapped things up perfectly while leaving it up for the viewer's imaginations how will the future of everyone go. Also the decision to make Hopper sacrifice himself (or rather go MIA as I don't believe he's dead - that's an obvious sequel bait) after a whole season of him acting like a total douchebag was an incredibly poor choice.
I liked Hopper in the previous seasons, but in this one he was constantly screaming at people and became a rather unpleasant character to spend time with
Don't get me wrong, it's not bad (like GoT season 8 kek), but unnecessary.
Unfortunately, it's been renewed
for a new season only bc Zendaya's audience is carrying it.
I feel bad for Lexi and Fez. The only people who make sense in this show. Fez is dealing drugs for his sick family member and doesn't support Rue's addiction, and Lexi who sees right through Rue's shit and just wants her friend back.
Also, about the season 3, I loved seeing Steve in that sailor costume the entire time. rofl Killing Hop was a bold move, but i didnt mind it. My issue is the scenes after the credits. it's obvious they are going for a season 4?? WHY? it's so played out already. i was really hoping it would end in season 3, but they are dragging it out and making me hate the show.
Alexei is so cute. Lucas' sister Erika was the worst addition to season 3. she was annoying in every single scene she was in
Same here for the sailor costume. When I saw it in the trailers I was like "Why is Steve wearing a weeb uniform?" lmao.
I didn't mind Erica, after she warmed up to the group.

If you enjoyed Dark (despite reeling from S2's finale, that show really took a nosedive into its own mythos this year) you might get on with other German or Scandi series, there's something about their culture that means there's a lot less focus on how attractive actors are in TV and more on strongly written characters and expressing emotions in a subdued, natural way. There was a third adaptation of the book Perfume (Parfum) into a miniseries that was really good from last year that fits this kinda mould. It's on Netflix.

Sage for samefagging, but Casa del Papel is apparently back for a 3rd series for no legitimate reason and I can just tell it's going to be shit. They never needed a third season, everything was neatly wrapped up at the end of Part 2, and this is just a flagrant excuse by Netflix and whatever Spanish TV company to make more big bucks off flashing Ursula Corbero's admittedly impressive asscheeks. Reeeee
Anon, you watch the new season of Its Always Sunny?
Kinda… bad mostly imo. Just them getting older. But the season finale “Mac finds his pride” was actually incredibly beautiful and moving, which surprised the hell out of me. Worth it just for that.

I don’t think it’s been discussed here but Los Espookys is so visually stunning and a really fun watch, it’s also really short i definitely recommend it for people with odd senses of humor. I thought this show was really original in a lot of aspects, and the way they were combined.
I watched that show while it was being aired. The first seasons are really interesting and pull you in, but the plot gets weird & messy after a while. The end of the show was extremely disappointing for me, left a lot of questions unanswered and just all around wasn't satisfying. If I could get my time back that I spent watching it, I would.
But some people still like it and recommend it. So do what you will.

I don't know how I feel about the ending of OITNB. Not a fan of Pipes with Alex, especially after they made moving on and life after prison such a huge deal. I also wanted to see more justice for the women but I guess the reality is that prison sucks so the writers went with the more realistic approach to the finale.
I just finished watching Dark Shadows (free on Amazon if you have prime) and it was great background noise while I worked. It's very slowly paced but every once in a while, the story takes a turn out of left field that's crazy fun. It was shot live, so there are a ton of mistakes recorded for posterity which I'm sure the actors were totally thrilled about. It's also fun to look at the real fashions and hairstyles of the late sixties onward.
Because of that, I fell down a rabbit hole of old soap operas and found a channel that has all the episodes of a show called Port Charles. Like Dark Shadows, they were sort of bumbling along until they decided to add vampires. Needless to say, if you care about serious story, this is not the show for you.
It's either really good or really, really bad, but it's much more fun than Dark Shadows and so far I'm loving it. You can jump in at the first 'book' Tainted Love (they stole the idea of short arcs from telenovelas) which is where the craziness begins. Don't worry about characters or backstory, you'll pick it all up quickly.
If you like ghosts and vampire slayers (seriously) and magic candles and angels and all kinds of other loony in serial form, take a look, you might like it!

I'm rewatching Bad Girls Club for the first time since it aired in like 2006. I'm about to start season 5.
Anyone else watch? I think I only ever saw up to the 4th season or so. I hear the new seasons suck bc it's just girls getting jumped constantly. It's way more entertaining when the girls can at least tolerate one another. Season 4 kinda sucked bc everyone was miserable the whole time.
I love watching this trash while I sew bc you don't need to pay any attention to the "plot" lol

Binged The Boys in three days flat. Pls talk to me about it farmers bc I feel like it’s all neckbeards and edgelords who like it lmao
Edgy shit, I'm pissed Amazon canceled the Tick for this.
Can't have fun happy superheroes, it's gotta be dark and contrary.
I caned it all in a day. I could feel my radfem side getting simultaneously annoyed and yet pleased that every character in it is universally an asshole, especially the men. Then again, considering the source was written by Ennis I'm not surprised. I wonder if this trend towards "gritty" comic book adaptations means one of the big streaming services will option some of the more subversive stuff, like The Filth or even Transmet. As long as they don't do to it what they did to Watchmen.
Except now that I think about it, they absolutely would, and I don't think I could cope with Ryan fucking Reynolds getting cast as Spider or something.
My complaint is that they tried to make the head-pusher sympathetic. His gill-rape and subsequent meltdown were delicious!
Fuck that guy.

Anyone checked out Glow on Netflix? Season 3 dropped eariler this month, but I'm already hoping it doesn't fall victim to Netflix's 3 season cancellation.
It's based on GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). They heavily based the chacracters from the real-life show but it focuses more on the production rather than the wrestling.
There are a lot of characters but it does a good job of giving each of them a bit of development throughout the season. l also apercaite the interactions between the some of the characters you wouldn't expect to make connections. A lot of times shows with huge cast only focus on the same few characters interacting with the same groups together so I love when there's some unexpected kinship between them. the main character may be the worst one but I'm watching for everyone else
If you're a fan of 80's shit, training montages and majority female cast with some light drama, I'd recommend it. Also the documentary on the real-life show for context.
I'm so sick of super hero shit already. it's always male pandering>>44903
I miss the tick.
I also liked Ruth less and less this season. I know that all of the major characters have their flaws but her role felt so indecisive and not evolving at all… And are we supposed to cheer for her because she still wants to make it as an actress? She is boring and uptight, and she should’ve taken the opportunity Debbie gave her.
I also loved the story about Bash and his coming out! I mean, we all expected it but still, it was interesting and sad. Sheilas glow-up was cool, too.
I like how they pick difficult topics and examine them very thoroughly from different perspectives. And I love Debbie’s outfits so much. I want to be her.
I love Glow! I didnt know it was based on a real thing. I think the character developments are really interesting and I really really appreciate the female cast.>>46118
I loved Ruth the previous two seasons but this season she's kinda insufferable. Ive come to like Debbie and I used to majorly dislike her before.
File: 1567014503296.jpg (75.2 KB, 646x431, glow-season-3.jpg)
So far my favorite season was the 2nd. I love Debbie, I find her character fascinating. Plus the actress reminds me a bit of Jodie Comer, and her body is pretty great.
I don't know if anything is worse than the new character/narration, even the redemption arc attempt.
Also I have a feeling Monty isn't actually dead and that may come into play in the 4th and final season

Just binged all of the new Amazon show Undone. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The animation style takes some time to get used to, and still looks odd and distracting in certain scenes. And the main character is really annoying, and unlikable, and a major SJW which was really off putting, but the story and other characters were interesting enough to keep me watching. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending though. I both liked it, and disliked it for being a cliff hanger. And I'm worried if the show gets more seasons, it's just going to go on and on, and never get a satisfactory conclusion, like most tv shows. But all in all, I recommend it.
I had to stop watching when they killed off charlotte
My precious waifu. >>46484
I may be convinced to pick it back up.>>46407>>46446
The third season was so bad holy shit.>>45083
Yes, honestly I think s2 and s3 are equally amazing!
It just gets dumhet and drives off the deep ned.
Bit its definitely a fun watch.

any big brother fans catch the season 21 finale tonight?
it's such a guilty pleasure of mine (ingrained in my defense, i was literally raised on every single season of bb and survivor) and it was simultaneously the cringiest and also most oddly satisfying ending. like the actual personification of losing the game and being loved versus winning and being hated was wild

Thanks for reminding me, I remember watching the trailer so I'll check it out.
I just realized it's by the guy who made Glee, which I coincidentally watched for the first time recently. I think everyone knows it's pretty shit but all I want to say is>Sue is incongruously, disproportionately hilarious for such a mediocre show. The sheer unapologetic villainy of her lines kills me>Rachel's style really glew up season 3 onwards and I want to know what brands she's been wearing

Has anyone watched A Korean Odyssey/Hwayugi? I want to know if the horror is intense, because I've just started the first episode without knowing there were scary scenes and I almost had a heart attack within the first minute. I can't stand Asian horror but I want to watch this, so please tell me it's just light-horror or smth.

Anyone watching Mr Robot? What did you think of the first episode of the final season?
It was great, it's gonna be really hard watching the rest of it with commercials.
White Rose's machine better be explained by the end.

Yeah, I hope so too. Maybe she wasn't lying to angela and she really has some time machine being worked on to hack the time.
The first episode was so packed with tension. I can't wait to see the rest of the episodes.
also, I have the stupidest crush on Dom.when that woman told dom how she would cut her mother, it made me sick. It was so well acted. also, do you think Price will seek vengeance? Because a lot of people seem to be thinking that.
on the subject of Mr.Robot, istg WhiteRose really does have the typical tranny voice! >>55312

Have any of y'all been watching American Horror Story 1984, I'm actually surprised that I like it bc I haven't been crazy about AHS since Asylum (hated last season and cult so much I didn't even finish them) but I feel like the cheesy 80s horror movie vibe fits how ridiculous the show is. It's easier to get over how over the top they keep pushing the show every season when the theme of the season of the whole isn't made to be so serious, it seems more self aware - if that makes sense
Also, gus kenworthy and cody fern are nice to look at

Are any other farmers going to watch to the new TV adaptation of the His Dark Materials series? I absolutely adored the books as a kid and still love them as an adult and I'm so excited that the BBC seems to be doing the series justice since the 2007 movie was such a disappointment.
The first episode just aired the other day and I really liked it so far. I'm enjoying the casting, honestly I was a little skeptical when I first saw the cast list but I like James McAvoy as Asriel a lot and the actresses who play Lyra and Ms Coulter are also very fitting IMO.
Anybody else watch the first episode? What are your thoughts?
It's already been renewed for a second season so at least there's that. I'm really hoping they'll get to make it through all three books.>>61441
I was a little surprised to see LMM in the cast but after thinking about it, he has the potential to nail the role. I can't wait for him to make his first appearance. (Also, I heard he was basing his portrayal off his own family from Texas which is super cute and gives me more hope that he'll be fantastic as Lee.)>>61459
Yeah, the casting for the Golden Compass movie was one thing it actually did well. Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter was god tier.

I really didnt expect lesbian part and also I think I fallen in love with Hailee Steinfeld
Ive watched season 1 and 2 and I really like it I'm not sure why. I just find it very comfy ? Which is weird considering what goes on. I started watching it because I found out it had 20 minutes episodes and I was sick of almost every show having 45+ min ep. It was a good surprise, I really didn't expect anything from it.
I don't remember everything from season 1 but yes he is rude and he's not going to change THAT much. It will get a little better though.

Did anyone watch the latest Mr. Robot episode? What did you think?
i am on season 3 and i don´t even know why, s2 was already way too pretentious, heavy handed and going nowhere with the plot and every character is an unlikeable dick.
The editing is pretty much the only thing i still like about it. Its a well put together production, even when the story is garbage and fucking redundant"muh capitalism, muh mental illness".
Absolutely ridiculous reveal but it sort of makes sense.
Will see how it goes from here.
I'm really mostly interested in the music/cinematography and figuring out wth the machine is for.

Has anybody watched the second season of "The End of The Fucking World"? I LOVED the first, but I don't know if I want to start the sequel because it doesn't follow the original story (the graphic novel suposedly ends like first season and that's it).
I do like the ending of the first. Should I give 2nd season the benefit of the doubt?
I wanna start watching the X-Files but I heard the later seasons aren't really good and even the fans wouldn't recommend them, so could I possibly stop when I get up to season 5-6 and the story would still conclude well? >>63714
Way too teenagery for me lol, which was what I expected but I just watched it out of boredom. Tbh I don't even think I would've been too into it as a teen, the characters are way too edgy and some of the acting was poor. I remember thinking some characters especially the policewoman made really stupid choices. Not gonna bother with season 2. The soundtrack was really good though, I'll give it that
It's not glorifying it except when it comes to Don imo but maybe that will change (I think it's hinting at it in s4). It clearly shows the misoginy, how ingrained it was during that period and how women start to change. I really like all the main female characters.
I didn't enjoy the first few episodes that much either because I found it too depressing knowing how women were treated back then. But around the second half of the first season I was hooked so I'd say watch s1 and if you still don't like it you can drop it.
I've seen all of it and I'm pretty sure your reaction is what the writers intended, Mad Men is odd because all the marketing tries to portray Don as a cool guy but the show itself is completely unambiguous about the fact that he's a turd from episode 1.
A lot of people disliked Season 4 because it rubs that fact in your face but if you didn't like him from the start you should be fine.
Hah, I'm also watching Mad Men and I just got to the 4th season today. Such a solid cast. The female characters are great and I'm dying to see more of Peggy.
Also, when I first saw Kiernan Shipka in Sabrina (couldn't get past the first ep), I thought she was an annoying brat because that was the direction she was given. Now that I see her as Sally I know there's just something about the actress I can't stand.

only found a brief mention of hannibal in this thread so i figured i'd bring it up again to ask if anyone followed the show through the last season and enjoyed it?
re-watching the first season right now because i really loved it when it aired. i never saw the second or third season, so has anyone seen them and felt that they were as good as the first season? i just love the atmosphere, acting, and especially the wardrobe and costuming in this show. the story is great. will i be disappointed as i get further into the seasons?
to be honest, there is gore in about every episode of the show and it is pretty realistic at times. I don't like gore either, but I'm okay with it in this case because it's not gratuitous. you don't really see
gore happening– usually it will just be a gory body after the violence has already taken place. the worst you usually see as it's happening is mild violence and blood.
I think you could still follow the plot without looking at the gore, but a lot of the show takes place at crime scenes so there are quite a lot of dead bodies you would be looking away from

Anybody watching this? thoughts?
Mando is some awesome gap moe, and the baby is ridiculously cute.
I love sci-fi.
I love it so much. I never really cared about Star Wars in general, but this makes me really want to look into it more even though it doesn't make me feel like I need to. I really like western bounty hunter shit, this is basically a space western.
Baby is an absolute plus, he's so cute.
This shit bothers me too.
Also,(book spoilers) how old is Renfri supposed to be? Iirc she says something along the lines of being Calanthe's age when she won her first battle, Ciri says the same, which would mean she's like 16-17? (I know they aged Ciri up) It bothers me that Geralt fucks her if that's true, same with Shani, she's also like 17 in the books and he's 30÷

If you haven't watched it yet, please watch Dark, it's incredibly intriguing and I like the characters and gray morality. Best go blindly into it and watch the original German dub, the English is bad.>>68591
Can you tell me what you like about her? I like the way she's written, but I don't like her as a person, if that makes sense. I'm going to read the books now, but in the series her wish for power and attempts to achieve it didn't intrigue me though I like her story.
Last episode next week. I'm already feeling down about it.
And why the hell do they keep dropping that baby?!
I'd say yes. If you're a Slavanon get ones that are translated to your language, they will be a whole lot better than the English translation, which is not to say that the English version is bad in itself, but a lot of the names and things like that just don't work that well in English.
The Serbian translation especially is amazing, it was one of the first languages the books were translated in and they put a lot of love into it.
Cool, I think I'll check the book out then. I thought some of the names sounded very Germanic (Geralt, de Vriess) but it was Polish, interesting.
I did a quick google search and the translation in my native language (not slav) seems to suck, so I'll probably end up reading the English translation after all.
I read the second season is planned for 2021, that's a fucking long time away after only 8 episodes, sucksss.
the tv series is retarded, I have noticed several times that popular witcher quotes are being thrown into the dialogue out of context just cause they sound cool. Like the part when Yennefer is compared to a scorpio, it makes no fucking sense in the tv series because the part of conversation preceding it got cut (Geralt said that he likes Yennefer more than all the other pompous mages).
Unfortunately the tv series completely butchers the witcher plot and characters. I had to double check if I'm not misremembering that Jaskier was supposed to be an annoying person, but a fucking talented bard because his output in the netflix witcher us horrendous
as someone who didn't read the books I think that explains why I felt like pieces of informations were missing. It felt like the show made a bunch of "jumps" where things happened but didn't show on screen or something. Anyone else feel that way?
Still gonna keep watching though.
I'm only on the first season but I have read the books.
I find the dialogue so so forced and very one dimensional? I even found the dialogue in the book to be lacking but the narration aided that a lot and this feels liek watching a wattpad fanfic come to life.
Nta but you're probably gonna hate season 2 cause I actually enjoyed the first one as the characters weren't as dumb and one-dimensional as this one (especially the main female character, love) and they turned the whole show into a pc-version of the book, unironically using things such as "pansexual".
I know it's in Hollywood and all but all the characters are turned into sjw type of people who would start fights with you on twitter, and that's annoying af. There's not one likeable person in that show so far.
Same anon. I'm on episode 5 now and i just skip through it cause i wanna know how things evolve in the show, and it's getting progressively worse, and the characters only get more pretentious and unbearable.
>I noticed the tumblresque characters in the second episode
they did that with the first season even, by having a trans actor. Was Blythe supposed to be trans in the book too? like, everyone in the show acted as if she was just a biological woman when in the second book Joe uses the word "tranny" iirc. In the show he's way "nicer" imo.
I sort of ended up enjoying Season 1 in the background. As for Season 2, it was entertaining for a bit and then it became really clear that I was basically watching a story repeat itself (I may be wrong, I'm on episode 6 I think?) while Joe is trying to say it's not. Even Joe's character has become really unlikable and in a way I felt like the whole point of him narrating is to somehow empathise and justify his actions. In the book I felt like there were some specific times that I felt like Joe was a horrible fucking person but for the majority of it I sort of glossed over it and he seemed almost normal. Candace felt useless and the plot outside of her seems sort of predictable?
Also yes on the sjw type of people. There's been some things said that really made me roll my eyes and the whole 'mansplaining' (?) thing they have going on is ugh.
In the book Joe drowned her, pretty sure it's revealed around the time Peach dies as a memory or a reflection and outside of that she really isn't that important.
I think that's why her character sucked so much because the writing seems to have stayed pretty close to the books, so taking a character that isn't even fully fleshed out and changing the story a bit to essentially force them in for added drama is unnecessary.

This show is absolutely terrible yet I can’t look away. The acting is terrible, costumes and makeup suck and the contacts they put on the actor playing Johnathan are so bad for a show that i imagined had somewhat of a budget. I’m only a few episodes in but I hate it, but it’s also so addictive, I can’t stop watching. Also the plot makes 0 sense and they literally could’ve finished after episode 1.

Y'all watched Messiah? It's intriguing af. It's obvious what the reveal will be, but I'm still hyped for season 2.
Any teen show to recommand? I already watched Skins Uk, Skam Norway, Baby, Euphoria, Misfits, Shameless, Glee and Gossip Girl.
I want charismatic caracters so no PLL/Riverdale…etc plz>>36197
Honestly that a good teen show, entertaining and well done. People trying to look for some deep message are obv dumbasses. It's 'realistic' but not normal. Euphoria is all the fucked up gossips/stories you heard about IRL in one highschool.
What annoys me is the extreme oversexualization of underage teens. Some scenes are too long and useless.
It's basically a what if? some guy showed up claiming to be Jesus and starts collecting an army of followers. Mix that with the refugee crisis, political issues, social media and the general modern world and it's really dope. The show keeps you guessing whether this guy is the real deal, a terrorist or something even worse.
The dude is very easy on the eyes and he's also great in his portrayal. His delivery is so charming, gentle and firm that you really understand why intelligent people would believe him. But underneath that there's also this uneasy layer which makes you wonder what he is.

Please someone else tell me they watched Love Is Blind so I have someone to talk about my trashy reality tv show with
thank jaysus. honestly I kind of feel the same, jessica was a drunken drama icon, the dog wine incident was peak reality tv. amber went out of her way to be abrasive trying to say thats how she is teehee. barnett aka fuckboy is an idiot for choosing amber because she literally told him she wanted to be a stay at home mom and has a crap ton of student loan debt and credit card debt and said THEY need a bigger house when they visited his place.
carlton is trash and doesn't deserve diamond one bit, hes been openly trashing her since the show and his "apology" was so disingenuous and self absorbed i swear he was going to suck the whole room in with his black hole of a personality.
jessica made the show for me tbh. with her obvious pining over barnett and questioning her own choices(honestly mark was annoying too, he didn't rly try to understand her). I did agree with her when barnett asked her to marry him & took it back, she looked out for amber and told her right away to be careful with him, the way amber handled it was rly annoying.
yeah how the hell do you have a credit card just for makeup and still manage to rack up that much debt on it WHILE having student loans? peak irresponsibility, if I were barnett I'd get a prenup or smth to protect my assets.
as a black bi person, at first, i understood carlton being afraid to tell her because there is a lot of stigma. but i could not take his side when he didn't tell her before they got engaged, i mean, wouldn't you want your partner to know of every part of you? if you hide such a big part of yourself until AFTER you're engaged of course she's gonna have a reaction. Diamond was rly sweet about it tho, she had questions and asked them, she wasn't angry, just confused and tried to respectfully ask him questions cause she had obviously never been in that situation before. he had so much self hate that he just expected her to be mad and lashed out at her.

Did anyone here ever watch W.I.T.C.H ?
I really like that show its a shame the way it was handled though because it has so much potential.
The show only had two seasons and after that the makers gave up and didnt want to continue even though so may people wanted there to be a third season.
After that i feel like alot of people forgot about the show.
they didnt even publish all the books in the US. There were multiple storylines beyond the Nerissa arc.
yen press is republishing the graphic novel tho
Do you mean the comics/magazines? I never knew there was a book….
When i was a kid it was really hard to find the comics for free on the int and even harder in english. I finally found them but the comics just disappointed me in many ways that i stooped.
But now i want to read the comics again.
Do you know any site where i can read them for free?
in the united states they were published like japanese light novels, in which they had a handful of illustrated pages and the rest is text like a novel.
i had like 22 or 23 of the books.
they later sold graphic novels of the books which i also had collected too.
if i remember correctly the series originated from italy so the english translation was really silly.

Has anyone watched Tiger King yet? From a documentary POV, it's meh, but it's insanely entertaining. All these people could easily be cows and I sort of wish I'd watched it all unfold online instead of watching it now. I was shocked by how cheap it is to buy a tiger too - not much more than a purebred pet dog or cat from a breeder! I also need more about Doc so they can expose his creepy polygamist cult ass.

There were also books written by a Danish author. Not sure if they ever released them outside the Nordics.
I read them as a child. They were pretty decent and had a cohesive over-all story, although not cannon. (I think there were two series, the one depicted here and another one with character stories?)
Really loved WITCH as a kid. It was sad to see the quality get worse over the years. The TV series was crap. I wish they had invested more resources into making the TV series (and cartoons) better in order to keep the popularity going.
Apparently Italy really love their mahou shoujo genre. WINX club came after and has made a cultural impact, according to Wikipedia. I was too old for WINX when it came out so I never liked the series, even though I tried.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winx_Club#Cultural_impact
I had the first season on dvd. We had regular magazines and some special editions (?) I remember there was one about the Olympics. And a comic book about a dance show/play or something like that.
Kinda sad I sold them at a flea market at some point.

So I finally got around to downloading season 4 of Mr. Robot. Anyone else already seen it or have thoughts on the series?
I just finished watching last night and really enjoyed it too. I was shocked at how cheaply you could pick up a tiger cub too, insane. I really hope in the future that the law comes down on that creepy sob Doc, especially if he really is putting cubs in a gas chamber once they're too old for 'petting sessions'
then he deserves jail time. the other guy who took the zoo from joe and essentially set him up in terms of the murder for hire idea
deserves jail time too. lock them all up. btw, do you believe that carole murdered her husband
about to start watching flavor of love. amazon prime took down I love new york s2 before I got chance to watch so I need to see FOL before it goes too
I fucking love how trashy it is
Damn I liked Elyon too, idk why tho
Her, and her bitch aesthetic brother>>80831
I think we also had those.. I remember one where Cornelia's bf got turned back into flower, and they had little comics on the front pages
witch were so good up until they tried to copy winx. I remember hunting for a kandrakar? heart pendant but i never got one
Watched season 4 a few months ago and it was perfect. I'd say the beginning of the season is weaker but it picks up in the middle. Then we have in my opinion the best episode of the entire show and until the end it stays an incredible wild ride. I was really scared of how esmail was gonna end the series. To me it was a make it or break it type of situation. But he absolutely did not disappoint.
As a whole, I think Mr robot is a masterpiece. The visuals, acting, storytelling, music…. I could go on and on lmao.
If you liked the first 3 seasons you will also like this one, it's truly going to be An Experience. I hope you were not spoiled on anything !
I actually thought about talking about that in my reply but it was too long lmao
But yes exactly, it is self aware and the hacker part is not the main point of the series but it's integral to the plot. I'd say this becomes clearer at the end of season 1. I know a lot of people gave up after the first few episodes but if you can, try to complete s1.
Why ARE they talking about all this old ass shit though (except tiger king).
I really don't want to watch a docu about that cannibal killing cats and a gay guy. Wtf
The way the docu is directed and structured isn't "oh these are just some people's opinions", yeah, I get what the message was but after that I saw multiple misled opinions about the case online saying how they're sure X did it without looking at official data.
It was just tasteless and disrespectful towards the death of a little girl, especially the part with the guy talking about how he loves to whip tits.
Binged the entire five seasons of Breaking Bad just so Walt could finally receive his comeuppance which imo wasn't harsh enough
. What a loser character, I fucking hated him. This is one of those shows where all the characters are obviously written by male producers. I read online reviews where people actually thought his wife Skyler was the annoying nag character, but if you watch the series she's perhaps even a bit too permissive and gullible of Walt's shenanigans. She barely gave him the shit he deserved and for how things turned out not anywhere near enough. The sexual scenes were so gross, I know it's pretend but I wanted to vom whenever Walt's ugly, wrinkly, bald ass old man character was feeling up on Skyler. Barf.>>82829>Don't fuck with cats glorifies internet sleuths
Lmao, they literally didn't do anything. There was nothing tying "don't fuck with cats" to the actual meat of the investigation. It was a huge contrivance because Netflix wanted an edgy title and some relatable loser characters for the internet detectives out there.
The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez was really good if that's still around.
I never thought that Skyler was written as a bitch or felt she was one, the male watchers are retards though… I wish Walt's attempt at marital rape had more serious consequences
Anyway if you watch Better Call Saul you may end up hating Walter even more lmfao
I don't understand why everyone acts like Skyler pissed in their cereal, it's so pathetic. She's a DV victim
trying to take back control. Walter is a sociopath who pretends to have feelings, all he's ever done is drag people into his shit. Jesse and Skyler were so damaged thanks to him.

I dropped breaking bad but I could sympathize with Walter's financial situation at the start and he didn't seem like a bad guy- until his extremely fragile ego is slowly revealed.
As for Skylar, I couldn't stand her because she was unemployed yet had such bad spending habits and smoked while pregnant. Then she moralfags at the office when she knows her boss is a sleazebag and she tries to get back at walt by… Sleeping with another ugly old guy?
That said, she's not nearly as bad as the rest of the cast, I just find people like her that are trying to be writers and not getting a real job annoying as fuck.
she smoked ONCE because she lost her shit due to what Walter has been doing with her life. And she was terribly ashamed of that.
She was also selling shit on ebay for a profit and had no problem getting a job when the situation called for it.
With Jesse she clearly did not like that Walter was meeting with a sketchy AF person behind her back and taking drugs. He was acting weird AF and she was right that something was wrong. Maybe it was not the best way of handling the issue, but Skyler was right to be concerned. >Exactly she was a fucking Karen and if she was a real person these same moral hags would be ripping her apart in her own thread
We wouldn't cause she was a normal ass (BORING) mother and a wife who did not give a fuck about social media.
I have no idea where does your interpretation of the character come from. I don't love Skyler, but I don't think she deserves all the hate at all.
You say it like she planned to fuck him straight away lmfao. It's normal she contacted an exboss that would hire ger for sure instead of going through job interview hell. She needed the job and money asap. You are nitpicking to justify your hateboner >>83488
Go ahead, sis. I have finally catched up

God tier TV show
I posted this back when /2X/ was still around about women representations in media
The difficulty of feminist representations is that it can sometimes get a little idealistic, trying to offer many great role models of women that “can do it all”. which can be very high-pressure for some women. Sometimes people don’t want to be inspired to be amazing, I want to feel allowed to be mediocre and petty. So the main character being a mess up and a loser was kinda empowering in a way,
This tv show deals perfectly with all facets of femininity including this about aging
> Sometimes people don’t want to be inspired to be amazing, I want to feel allowed to be mediocre and petty.
Exactly! She recognised her cycle of addiction to human affection because she didn’t love herself

Started watching this show quiet some time ago and while I like it so far chuck kind of stops being endearing and starts genuinely becoming annoying. As far as manic pixies go shes not the worse I've seen but her personality starting to become abit grating
YES. Loving it so far and really looking forward to the finale.
Watching it makes me want to read the book too, even if I know what happens.
This should go to a movie thread, not this one… just saying…
Anyway just look up feminist critiques of Twilight, most of them are on point.
Also keep in mind that the novel author is a Mormon and it shows in the storyline. Plenty of weird shit in regards to sex.
I think Skylar was being selfish by letting Walt back into her home and life, buying a car wash with him, and using his drug money for anything at all. She jeopardized her kids safety multiple times by doing this, because we all know the cartel has no issues with killing a whole family to gain leverage or get back at someone. In BCS, Jimmy has done a lot to keep Kim out of his cartel business because he understands this. Walt and Skylar apparently don't.
At one point, I felt like maybe she was going along with it because she was scared of him, but when she fucked him later on, that just kind of made me dislike her. She got so mad at him for all the lies and the shit he pulled but she's a hypocrite because she not only helped him commit crimes but also helped Ted Beneke too. She should have told her divorce lawyer everything and got the hell away from him.

Is anyone else really disappointed by Midnight Gospel? I didn't look up much before I went in but I think the story and animation behind the talking is sooo interesting but the conversations feel so boring and surface level deep. I feel tricked into listening to a bad podcast.
Have farmers seen The Expanse? I never
liked sci fi shit no matter how much my brothers try to force feed me it but one day I put on The Expanse on my own for some reason, just finished season 2 and I’m crying lol >>83774
Fuck I love Fleabag. I want that entire monologue tattooed on my forehead. I was in love with Belinda by the time she finished.
>>86317> but the conversations feel so boring and surface level deep
I think there’s the point, anon. Part of its narrative is how people who go on and talk about spirituality deep down are rotten, violent, superficial cunts who can’t see shit but their lies (the constant violence while the interviewee goes on rambling about how enlightened they are is key), which peaks with the “japanese” mentor, the one in the studio with all their adds etc. Only mom’s got the true light, once you listen and accept their love (which he didn’t at the start, he was obsessed over the podcast and didn’t listen until she was on the death bed. He desperately looks for a mentor, to the point he almost died of overdose, he didn’t manage to feel fulfilled by himself or confront that there is no mentor, only his legs. And mom’s love.

Finished Normal People today. I could never get into the book but I loved the show, unsurprisingly. I've always been into opposites-attract/star-crossed lovers tropes so this was right up my alley.
Honestly, I don't think so.
The creator and main voice actor is the owner of the podcast they animated the show of, if its not about his stupid ass surface level deep podcast (which went on much much after his mother's death) how the heck would they do a second season?

Lets be honest here she was the only total drama character who left the biggest impression.
People always talked about her wherever they hated her or not.
im kinda gay for her.

Yeah i was surprised and a bit weirded out when i found out that the characters were 16.
But i guess to little children 16 could look grown up but it was inappropriate to make 16 year old characters so sexualised.
I mean just look at how they made Lindsey look like wtf.

Just finished Little Fires Everywhere yesterday and it was good, but not memorable. I was bored watching Reese Witherspoon play her character from Big Little Lies again. The kids were all great, and I did tear up over Mia and Izzy's bond – I was incredibly similar to Izzy when I was younger, mommy issues, sexuality and all. Moody seems like a budding incel. The uneducated racist daughter had a good storyline. Bebe's was boring – she was never going to win the case. Both of the main mothers would absolutely be the subject of r/raisedbynarcissists and for that reason I disliked them both.

I just finished Why Women Kill and it was pretty enjoyable! Nobody I know has seen it because it was on CBS but you can watch it for free on their streaming service with the free trial. It follows three women who all lived in the same house in different decades and is about someone cheating. It's only like 10 episodes and 80's Lucy Liu makes this worth watching alone.
I saw my friend watching this once in an episode where the guy wants to be pegged and she accidently melts his special custom made dildo . I might pick this up.>>89833
I love Lucy Liu, I used to religiously watch elementary. Thanks for the rec, I know bigger networks dominate the scene but this looks promising.>>89639
Shit made me tear up though. I agree about the flaws in both women but it's what makes them great characters, even if you dislike them. I just wish Reese did more? I feel like she plays the same character all the time. Sansa Stark syndrome.
I enjoyed The Young Pope, Jude Law is great!
Have you seen the New Pope, anon? I expected much more from it after seeing the trailer, but was left with rather mixed feelings… I feel like all the good moments were already in the trailer tbh. Also the line of that woman who miraculously got pregnant in the first season rather upset me. I didn't really understand what creators were trying to say with it and it was disturbing to watch. There was too little of Jude Law and John Malkovich's character didn't captivate me as much, I expected him to be more interesting and eccentric, I guess.

That's so exciting but so sad, lol. Have fun, anon. You're so right about Polly. She's badass from the get-go. I even love Lizzie, honestly. Besides Thomas, I found Aberama and Alfie really cool. I could list them all. The show, impressively, only has a few shitty characters imo.

Anyone finished the new Killing Eve season? Did you like it?
I feel like the next season will be full on Villaneve, I'm very okay with that.
I was hella hooked on Peaky Blinders, then I kinda fell off the horse around the Spooky Russians plotline. Can't really relate to anybody anymore. The characters are all comically traumatized imo, it's just so melodramatic. Polly seemed very cool (was my fav) and then she went batshit in a very stereotypical way. I get why she got that way but it's frustrating to see an older female character waste away like that. Idk.
I do like Lizzie a lot still. I will try to get back into the show because I loooove the aesthetic.
Yeah I totally get that, I think that was the worst season, there was too much going on to properly focus on anything. I didn’t fully get it until maybe like 3 episodes into that season which isn’t ideal for a show with 6 episode per season. If you can get past that season I promise it does pick up again.
I know what you mean about Polly, but she doesn’t stay in that weird state for the rest of the show.
The aesthetic is amazing, especially the scenes in London where they go to a club and there’s tons of flappers! It is a really worthwhile show though, Cillian Murphy does a great job playing Tommy.

watching "The Mick" at the moment and am really enjoying it but…i find pic related so outputting and can't stand his scenes
I'm still mad as hell about it omg. It's such an insane waste that they saved Merlin's magic reveal to the very end. We got the bare minimum of time for Arthur to process it, it was so unsatisfying after 5 seasons of it being a massive source of conflict and a defining factor of their dynamic. It should have been revealed at the start of a season, so we get all that time for Arthur to react properly. There's so much potential for emotion and meaningful relationship development… anger, betrayal, being conflicted over his principles, really understanding and respecting Merlin, and eventually accepting magic. Also it would have been hilarious seeing him realize all the times Merlin saved his ass. I fucking love their relationship, it's so disappointing we never got to see it resolved with more depth.
And in retrospect, it's just like… what was the point of anything that happened if it ended like that? It's like Merlin's long game plan was to just… idk, hang around Arthur and continually protect him from magic, with no intention of ever actually changing his mind and have him grow to accept Merlin himself and magic in general. Instead he just let it get worse and worse with magic posing a constant threat, it's not like Arthur would have organically changed his mind with that happening. I guess the writers wanted to make the point that Merlin just straight up failed because he kept ignoring the dragon's advice and didn't kill a bunch of characters who weren't evil at the time, but that's so unfair.
Phew that was a rant. It's a mediocre show in terms of plot, writing and effects but it always made me laugh, and Arthur and Merlin are so endearing together that it's still special to me. At least it has a surprisingly active fandom with a tonne of ending rewrites to compensate.
Yes, I've seen the ending only recently despite rewatching the show a billion times because back in the day a friend warned me that it's stupid as hell and ruins the entire show.
She was 100% right, I can't watch that show again after seeing the ending. They made it out like old Merlin was some hobo giving roadside blow jobs to make ends meet. What a stupid fucking ending. Jesus Christ.
I couldn't stand watching the show because of Michael, but my brothers found him utterly hilarious and the best character of the bunch
Watched the whole show once and will not waste any more of my time on it ever again
Would get so much shit for not finding him likable so I'm glad to find others that feel the same

I love Derry Girls so much. It's the perfect storm of a teenage emotional rollercoaster, friendship, superficially despicable and still loveable original characters, realistic dysfunctional family dynamics that are portrayed hilariously, political incorrectness, feral meanness and hostility, a few wholesome moments sprinkled in there, a cool cultural setting, well-written, hilarious jokes and girl characters written for their unpolished over the top characters and not their attractiveness or superior coolness.
It just makes me so happy. I'm a Derry Girl in heart

all the live action remakes coming out lately make me so mad lol. the casting is always god awful and they're never even close to the same level of quality as the original works they're based on. but they make money, and don't require any originality. easy for hollywood to farm them i guess.

i binged the alienist throughout the past few days and although i personally didn't favour the ending of the first season, i'd def recommend it to anyone who digs a good period drama but doesn't mind some dark, dreary true crime-ish gore thrown in as well.
i ended up watching it on a whim after realising they've added it to hbo max.
the second season just aired recently i guess, and i just bought the first book too, so i'm looking forward to reading it and noting the differences between it and the show / eventually watching later eps when i can!!
I've seen a lot of opinions about season 3 of Aggretsuko being the best and while I see why people would think that, because theres a lot of entertaining things happening, for me it's easily the worst. My favorite thing about it was that the show itself and Retsuko are relatable, but with the events of s3 it's not relatable at all anymore unfortunately.Honestly I'm just really upset for Manaka, who is really driven and works hard to make her dream come true, even though it's believed she has no chance because of her age, and then Retsuko comes and has everything given to her on a silver plate.
Also at this point Haida is just a pathetic creep, being in love for five years with a coworker that barely talks to him on a daily basis - unless she needs something - and rejecting anyone that would actually be interested in him and have things in common. It really is not romantic or cute anymore.
small rant over
I literally just binged through it. It has to be one of my favourite Netflix shows now, it's so strangely down to earth.
I loved Manaka, I hope she becomes a returning character in the next season.

Friend had me as her binge buddy for Lucifer and while she's absolute shit and a blistering scab on the show as a character. I am starting to seriously worry for Lauren German, she's gone past 'clearly has had work done' and is full on 'looks like a porn star' level of plastic surgery.

Cobra Kai is on netflix now, I 100% recommend it even if you weren't that into the Karate Kid movies. I wasn't a big fan but the series is legit funny and awesome, it surprised me how good of a sequel it is. The teen drama is a bit goofy at times but the whole thing is worth it for grown up Johnny and Daniel.
I have to agree with you, I still love Aggretsuko and enjoyed the season, but I found S3 to be too whimsical, rather than down-to-earth and realistic like the past seasons.
Also, does anyone else just really love seeing shows about cute young adult/middle aged women struggling with life? Any other recommendations? (Anime or TV)

I didn't really like this season.
They ruined Haida for me I know indecisive soyboy is a legit stereotype for men in Japan but I don't find it endearing. Especially when Haida puts on a tough guy front but literally leads on a woman who practically spoonfed herself to him, which is more than what Retsuko ever did in the entire five year run, because uwu~so indecisive~uwu. He didn't deserve her. Inui handled it like a champ but I think more women ought to lose their shit over those games, it sends a bullshit message about the fuckery women are expected to endure imho. Haida was being a piece of shit and would've deserved a consequence. And ugh, the scene where Fenneko pressed Haida to say why he even likes Retsuko when he only knows anything about her from work: So he flashbacked to this lame scene where she was ~stealing water from work~ so he knew she was a more-than-meets-the-eye baddie deep down for being a "water thief" LOL FUCKING WAT
. Don't even get me started with that bullshit final episode where their motivations are at odds and Haida is a dick in the song he sings to her, how tf do you call someone a "chicken" after they've been assaulted with a boxcutter?
inb4 "He was trying to show her how being reclusive and indecisive is bad!" Well friendos, that's coming from a guy who couldn't even pick his romantic interest for 5 years, so. Also, I thought it was a bad sign when Haida started to hang out with Tadano
because he was another dude who couldn't give Retsuko what she needed and wanted. They were trying to make him sound more insightful for Haida than he actually was imo. However I was hoping that Gori and Tadano
were going to ship by the end of the season because they both seem career-ambitious and less children-oriented, and I feel he could help Gori out with her debt
and give her the rich lifestyle she deserves and clearly wants. It was cute how they had a shared tech moment and I really hope that didn't just happen cause they're both orbiting plot devices for Retsuko.
Unpopular Opinion: The idol storyline was shit and was so out of character for Retsuko. Manaka was way too mentoring and nice
towards Retsuko who basically swooped in and pulled the pecking order from under her feet after she worked so hard for years. She was somehow okay with being sidelined
knowing she is an "older idol" with not many years left. It wasn't believable at all. Then I was supposed to believe that timid, shy Retsuko who had a problem with people knowing her karaoke secret and can barely deal with confrontation, who's never been actually trained for dancing or singing, would have what it takes to naturally go up on a public stage and be a frontlining idol right off the bat with no awkward slip ups and next to zero mistakes
. Uh huh. And then the last episodes where she throws caution to the wind despite the creepy stalker skulking around her work
and she just exists all naively…lmao, totally forced to progress the plot because her character is way more anxious and cautious than that. And then she just…leaves the group as if that will resolve her identity being exposed and public now
riiight. Oh and the part where she was slated to make way more money following her passion. Nah, she'll take the downgrade to go back working for asshole Ton for less money to be with ball-less bassist coworker Haida again.
Butchered character development.
I think the producers just bit off more than they could chew with this season so the last two episodes felt really rushed and forced.
I really felt ambivalent towards this season. Haida and Restuko have no chemistry imo, and I know Retsuko’s character is being naive and passive but she really was ridiculous that last episode. Isn’t she usually quite cautious? Why ignore a direct warning from someone? And on the other hand the concluding discussion between her and Haida was so confusing, since the scene just before practically said that she needs time and to not push her but the app said they’re soulmates so it’s obviously fine!
. I think there was so much wasted potential there as it seemed like they just wanted to wrap it all up in a nice status-quo bow when that just won’t work.
In general to me the idol subplot felt like they opened a huge can of worms. I had thought she would at least go for a secret identity thing, which I guess she tried but it’s not really discussed.
Inu was done soo dirty. And I agree on your Gori ship, I really thought it was about to happen and it…didn’t?
I’m still holding out hope for the next season because I do still (mostly) like the characters. Sidenote, I feel like I’m going crazy, I can’t understand some of what Ton says (eng dub)
File: 1598945599904.png (106.69 KB, 782x771, 6aa71c9c-1499-4241-ad5f-3c9843…)
Is Retsuko engdub any good? Never tried but I heard that they mistranslate things and twist them around.
However, I am laughing at "sounds like chicken to me", because
In the original, Haida says, "ii gomibun dana" which can be translated as "what/that's a nice situation/life." Given the combination of "gomibun" (polite speech) and "da na" (informal, casual speech), the tone comes across as sarcastically respectful. Also idk if there would be a way for any of them to sing something "nice" because its a death metal genre. I am not WKing Haida (my fave char is a bird and Fenneko anyway) but to me it looked like that he tried provoking her so she would finally open up her true feelings, considering through midseason all her friends did were being concerned over her being secretive and talking about how she always bottles everything up.
I liked the Inu-chan but I thought that the way she tries to start dating him was way too quick but thats just me ig. Other than that she's nice.
So far I loved this season because of idol industry arc and many dynamics with different characters. Very cute.

>>106505>Is Retsuko engdub any good?
No, it's hideous.
I'm glad to see someone not dumping on Haida. His shallow fixation on Retsuko is cringe, but I agree he's the only one that actually DID anything to help her rather than just letting her wallow and become a hikikomori. Yeah being assaulted is terrifying, but they mention it had been weeks since she even came out of her room and was on the verge of losing her job. She still ended up telling him off for seeing her as this idealized projection of herself, so in the end they both got to express themselves. Hopefully they actually get to know one another next season, regardless of whether they get together or just become friends.
I also don't see the fuss over Inui. She was… fine? Honestly kind of boring, she was "nice" and apparently liked the same music as Haida. Wow. Then she pushed him to admit his feelings for Retsuko as she was lying passed out in his arms after he got stabbed by a maniac. Then she's all, "Oh I guess this isn't the best time for this." Lol, no shit.
File: 1599000638501.jpg (31.94 KB, 589x493, 6d4a2ba4f36a57541faa560f.jpg)
Fair enough. I can totally agree it's likely I'm not into her because I just don't know much about her, so she comes across as a somewhat shallow character.
It kind of reminds me of Resasuke actually. He seems like this total loser mute which is even funnier because it contrasts with Retsuko's bishounen image of him, but right at the end we see he's a sweet dude that loves plants. I don't believe plant people can be bad lol. I would've loved to see more of his quiet inner world, but he wasn't intended to be a main character.
It's funny because that ties back into Haida for me. Retsuko gets this pass on overidealizing someone, but Haida doesn't? Retsuko was turning Resasuke completely into someone else, whereas it was actually a very "real" thing that Retsuko did that first caught Haida's attention. I saw a lot of people bashing him for not being able to mention something specific about her personality and bringing up a seemingly inconsequential moment, but I think it's sort of cute that it was something so banal that intrigued him.

Anyone watching the Boys? It just came out yesterday. It's off to a slow start but I'm excited for next week. Haven't been this into watching a weekly tv series in years.
That's Ennis for you though.
I've watched 3 episodes of the second season now and it's pretty great. Kimiko gets a little fleck of story fleshed out.
Yeah the writer said he regretted how Kimiko was portrayed in s1 in this article https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a33625772/the-boys-kimiko-karen-fukuhara-portrayal-regrets/
so i think that her character will be explored a lot more this season. Also what do you guys think of Stormfront? I hope they don’t make the whole racism/fascism thing too heavy handed, that would kind of ruin the show for me.
I thought about this not to refute it or anything. For me, it's the acting mostly and being taken off guard and surprised by the very well-acted craziness and character dynamics. And just the sheer chaotic power of Villanelle.
You're right that it's not great cinema where you can fully immerse yourself in a coherent plot with realistic characters. It's sheer over the top craziness, moral/rational chaos and upheaval of any order. I think there is a lot of comedy and satire going on. I can't say if the show does that well or if it that's a waste.
I don't think Eve is a Mary Sue at all though. She really comes across as a smart, funny, emotionally a bit shallow, awkward confused woman whose moral compass is spinning wildly because of her contained desires. Maybe Sandra Oh's acting helps that for me or it's just Sandra Oh I'm actually watching (lol). Maybe you mean self-insert?
For me, the irrationality and darkness of the show is mirroring reality and also personally cathartic somehow as I'm an anxious overthinker. Maybe it could be written more seriously but the show does well what it does that way.
Villanelle is just drop dead gorgeous, chaotically powerful, scarily loveable and entertaining and the crazy relationship dynamics are interesting and entertaining af.
I'm also glad for the good chemistry Eve/Villanelle have.
Just watching Villanelle going from being a terrifying killer freezing my blood to being an equally terrifying but somehow loveable, funny and playful goofball in the next scene gives me life. Or coming into a scene in a literally killer styling. She is a psycho without a moral compass and not a feminist rolemodel or anything at all but she is completely uninhibited by the neurotic worries your average woman is bound to have in this society. And that's just a relief and liberation.
Jodie Comer is a really great, versatile actress with a lot of depth matching Mads Mikkelsen easily. Men irl are a little scared of her haha

Thanks to all the anons (the anon?) who recommended What We Do In The Shadows the series.
I prefer the movie for a lot of reasons but the show is very entertaining aswell.
Guillermo for one is hilarious.

My highlight is Nadja. I was completely taken off-guard by that one scene where she stalks the man and casually crawls up to his window where he's jacking off furiously and she takes a vintage flashlight photo and just fucks off again
. That was hysterical and surprised me. I was intrigued. I was sold when she later moaned at him and had a psychotic break about cutting off his head during sex.
Love me a feral woman lmao
nta but I get what you're trying to say regarding Villanelle and the freedom and power she had and inspires but the fact is that I can't ever take ever it seriously, I have this problem with male action heroes as well, In real life assisains are not quirky and or have a chique dress sense, they are ugly plain men who kill people for money, sometimes they will have bullshit code about how they won't kill women or children but many do
I can't take Villanelle seriously, cause I will always know it's as fake as superheros, so there's no point

I can't choose, I love all the characters. Colin Robinson is the one that gives me the most keks probably, but the others are hilarious and adorable in their own way as well.

ayrt and thanks for reading my schizo wall of text. I get what you're saying and feel you.
I also noticed for myself that my tolerance for tv violence and gore fluctuates. Sometimes it's thrilling but other days, it's just disturbing and puts a damper on the perks of a show.
Now that Jodie Comer made a name for herself, I look forward to seeing more of her acting in other roles, too.
damn I tried to watch Dark but I'm on ep 7/10 and it feels like it's all build up and dramatic, intriguing hints with no substance.
It reminds me so much of True Detective S1 in a bad way.so much lush aesthetic creepy vibes, no payoff. You'd think 70% in SOMETHING interesting or juicy would be revealed.
Also kinda reminds me of cringy anime when the biggest tensions are that people who grew up together in a tiny town all want to fuck each other.
The casting between the timelines
was great but I'm still struggling to remember who everyone is and how they're connected. All these middle aged Germans look the same to me lol

I've been seeing this show called 'Adult material' advertised quite a bit. What are people's thoughts on it? It seems to be like another 'sex wurk is real wurk!!!' shows that ignore the sexual exploitation of the porn industry and ignores the poverty and child grooming that leads to women going into porn
sorry anon, i meant I prefered english ones cause the ones I kept watching were in a foreign language>>109376>>109383
Thanks I'll check these out! they look really interesting!>>109418
I finished all seasons of community…did they ever get a movie?

They cancelled the final season of GLOW after it had already been renewed. I'm so mad!!
I dunno what it is, but I'm really just…not digging The Haunting of Bly Manor as much as I'd hoped I would. I watched The Haunting of Hill House like five times over and I loved every second of it, but I find myself getting bored easily with Bly and struggling to get through each episode. None of the characters really grab me, nor do the relationships between them - hell, even the spooky shit just seems bland this time around.
Idk if any other anons here have watched it at all, but I'd be interested to know if anyone feels the same or if I'm just retarded and don't know how to enjoy things anymore lmao.

I liked pen15 at first but the masturbating episode was tedious and gross. Oh great another minute long zoom in of this fucking face to wild safari music. Coomer bitch
I loved Broad City and audibly lol'd with every episode. The one where they talk about the moyel
bothered me but then there was an episode where they were justifying seeing kids as attractive as long as you see them in the eyes of past kid self
and that was the nail in the coffin.
I want to find something that I can laugh at like this show, but I can't deal with content like that.

I haven't watched pen15, and have only watched the trailer, it looked like the female-equivalent of the good boys with it's 'omg they're barely pubescent girls and they're masturbating and doing sexual things!!! Look how edgy we are' low-quality, bottom of the barrel 'adult' humor. That paired with the fact I don't think I can really relate to the subject matter that much made me think it was going to be bad or not for me, but since a few anons here are saying that it's good, I might give it a chance- what about pen15 makes it good?
I actually really liked those episodes since they resonated with me. Actually, the entirety of PEN15 captures my middle school experience in such an authentic and funny (if lowbrow) way that I just can’t help but love the show. It helps, of course, that I’m only around 5 or 6 years younger than the writers/actresses, so we’re generationally very close.
I was a chronic masturbator as a preteen, and like many or even most women, I was raised in an environment where women’s bodies and sexualities were unspoken at best and weird and shameful at worst. I didn’t understand the lizard brain shit going in my skull directing me to endlessly masturbate upon the discovery of the feel good button between my legs, and absolutely no adult was going to educate me on what was happening in a nonjudgmental way. Jungle music may as well have been playing in my head because it was really such an animalistic urge, and I was probably just as unsexy and slack jawed as Maya when I did it.
I really liked the article posted on Bustle talking about the episode: https://www.bustle.com/p/the-pen15-masturbation-scenes-are-some-of-the-frankest-depictions-of-female-puberty-on-tv-15936526
I liked Owen, Hannah, and Jamie a lot. The show was disappointing to me as well, even though I actually enjoy family drama a lot. I was expecting more spooks which I'm definitely underwhelmed by but even the family drama was lame. By the second half/last third of the season things just turned into endless exposition and backstory that was not revealed in an interesting way. What began as a fun, almost whodunnit-adjacent mystery (for instance, noticing Hannah doesn't eat starting from the first episode and keep noticing she does not, thinking is she anachan or dead or what) that eventually just turned into entire episodes completely spelling out every detail. I think they should have let Dani solve the mystery of the backstory instead of telling the audience all of it via so many flashbacks. Part of me thinks there is a version of the script that actually does this, but was deemed too subtle for a general audience, as execs often think audiences are stupid af.
That being said I was not completely enthralled by Hill House either. I liked it but I wasn't obsessed. I would rate the funeral episode 10/10, however.Also enjoyed seeing lesbians on screen, I know it's naive of me to be so easily impressed by muh representation but Dani's sitaution with her ex hit close to home for me as a closetcase
I wish my tween experience was that wholesome tbh. When youngins first discover masturbation, we do get excessive lol
I wish I masturbated to Zac Efron or sand dunes
. Getting groomed into coomerhood by the Internet sucked. >>111329
On episode 3, it’s …okay so far. Will report back.
So yeah Haunting of Bly Manor was very room temp and unsatisfying. It is like >>111425
said, not enough spooks, the ghosts are so goofy tbh lol, extremely “tell, don’t show“ .

Has anyone been watching Lovecraft Country? I've been enjoying it but Episode 8 pissed me off. The fact everyone except for like Montrose basically ignored Dee. Like, a young girl goes kinda missing while racial tensions are especially high, and everyone gets sidetracked while looking for her. Atticus also acted like a huge asshole to Ji-ah. I don't get how he can be mad at her and tell her their love wasn't real after he called her twice. I just hope Hippolyta comes back rant over

is glow a good show? should i check it out?
I just binged To The Lake on Netflix
it's in Russian but if you can look past that I think its worth a watch. It keeps you on your toes, and it was really interesting to see how another culture views a traditionally dysfunctional relationship (with a backdrop of a zombie-like pandemic). If you end up watching it, let me know what you think.
It's great til the end, I got hooked and binged it in one day.
I particularly loved the fashion in it.

Oh shit I came to post about The Queen's Gambit.
Literally watching episode 1 right now, everything about it so far appeals to me! maybe it's the dark academia thing kek
Can't wait to binge it.
