I can't seem to find a thread on tv shows. There is a movie thread (and I think even a netflix thread and a GoT thread) but nothing relating generally tv shows (including netflix, HBO, etc).

What are you watching ? What do you reccomand watching ?

No. 32443

I finished Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Knightfall, Forged in Fire, and Roman Empire. I have no idea what to do with myself now TV wise. I watched a few episodes on On Children and KonMari, but I have that sense of "seen one, seen them all." Knightfall was the only show out of all of these I throughly enjoyed. I like historical based action/drama with some sort of emotional chemistry between characters, but also have the attention span of a gnat. I think I might start Marco Polo. I mostly watch nature and WWII documentaries.

No. 32445

I started watching the HBO Chernobyl series and it seems pretty good so far, especially with the sound editing and music.

No. 32528

Last time I tried to watch a TV show was Supernatural and I stopped in the middle of season 3 because of the lack of free time. I liked it a lot but I've been told that starting from season 5 or 6 it becomes very different because the story was supposed to be concluded with season 5. I plan on at least watching until season 5 because of this.

I don't find most TV shows very appealing nowadays because you have to be sort of committed because of the format. Once I graduate and have enough free time I'll start watching more movies but I'll only stick to series I've been interested in for a while. I want to catch up with Doctor who because I never watched the episodes in the correct order because of the channel it was on back then, and I want to watch the 3rd season of Sherlock BBC because I think I forgot enough spoilers now. I'm also sort of curious about Game of Thrones but I'm not sure I'll watch it. I also never finished the Mentalist and Misfits. I started the first season of How to get away with murder and I stopped halfway in because I couldn't stand the characters.

By the way some of my favorite series are Malcolm in the Middle and the Nanny.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 keep noticing that since ~5th season they started trying to get some woke points, and I feel not that satisfied over 6th season (watched only 7 episodes for now, though) but I find the fact that they kicked out Gina really dissappointing, because she seems irreplacable to me, and her final episode was so sloppy and rushed. Plus, it feels like they are trying to make a big deal out of Rosa's sexuality, and keep baiting Jake on 'OWO GUYS. HES BI TOO! XD XD'.

It can be hit and miss. The earlier seasons are definitely better. From the most recent season, I liked Smithereens because it was the most realistic and human. It actually brought me on an emotional rollercoaster and I cared about most of the characters. The others are so ridiculous it's laughable, maybe people like them because they're a little more light-hearted but I don't watch Black Mirror for that.

The ending to Striking Vipers was absolutely terrible. I expected the main guy to leave his wife but the ending was actually worse than that. Ashley Too was way too over the top. The only issue I had with Smithereens was the sub plot about the mother getting access to her deceased daughter's account. Imo that could have been an entire episode by itself and it felt shoe-horned into that episode. I also didn't enjoy seeing a selfish, nosy cow being rewarded.

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.

Started watching The Romanoffs on Amazon Prime and it's actually really entertaining. I got into it because the creators of Mad Men were involved with this one. Love the short story format (each episode is a self-contained story) personally! On episode 4 now.

No. 36547

It's basically Skins-Season 7 garbage tier quality meets Kids with model tier actors instead and I usually like trashy stuff like this but with like assassination nation (which is done by the same creator) it's really dull despite the edgecore factors going on. Sam Levison really wants to be like Harmony Korine so fucking bad and I think Zendaya is going to regret doing this shit it if the show gets canned later on. I know this is getting more blogshit tier and I am actually in the firm camp; that coming of age stories don't have to be relatable to everybody own experiences but I wish so many screenwriters and critics; would stop thinking edgy over the top; sex, drugs, drinking, etc's automatically means realism is finally being looks into teenager's lives and that's it.

No. 36620

I watched it the other day and at first it made me feel like i missed out on a lot but like. I honestly dont think any teenager acts like this? Maybe aspects of it but not literally all of this. Also, the only thing saving this show is Zendaya but honestly she's going to regret giving up her relatable young girl image for this in like a year

Just finished watching Better Call Saul, it's not as great as Breaking Bad, but I actually had more fun watching it because it doesn't make you tense or anticipate conflict all the time. The characters, the jokes, is just so well-written. All in all, it's a clever show that actually makes you care for the characters and question your beliefs and morals. Fuck, I can't wait for Season 5.

No. 36898

never gotten into Better Call Saul. Tried and failed. I watched all of BrBa and love it back then but looking back I'm annoyed at so many things. I'm annoyed at how his wife was potrayed (annoying, needy) when she 100% had the right to act that way and the fact He's presented as some super cool dude when in fact he put hiw whole family in danger just for the trill

No. 36920

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.

No. 36922

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.

No. 36923

>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.

>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.

No. 36924

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?

I haven't seen it myself but my friends seem to view it as a guilty pleasure, so I'm guessing it isn't great quality. Also they think the main actor is attractive, which is probably a reason they keep watching, so I guess you don't have that going for you either.

I've loved Eva for a long time and can honestly say that I like the new English dub, mostly because of new Shinji. He sounds pretty similar to the Japanese VA and his voice is less annoying to me.

No. 39148

A considerable amount of the fandom's read was that Walter is badass despite his shittiness.

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??

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.

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.

I don't know if they're trying to pander to edgy tweens or porn addicted men, but my boyfriend was watching Vikings while I was playing on my phone and he complained about at least 3 freaking sex scenes per episode.

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.

Moss can actually decent actress if you see some of her lesser known work with Alex Ross Perry but I can’t help it either shit writing/direction or she’s just miscast as June.

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.

Didn't her actor, Taryn Manning, game a cryptic interview after the end of the show saying how she was left worse off she was before because she was the only one speaking out about the "harms" the show was making and how it was hurting a lot of people?

No. 43808

She said her Insta was hacked and it wasn’t her who posted this. But why would someone hack her account to post such specific messages? It must have been her. I wonder what happened behind the scenes, especially since in the credits and several farewell videos on YouTube, the cast and the work on set seems so wholesome. I agree that her death was out of the blue and a bad choice, though. Even if they did it because of the character’s growth ("This is a character with lots of potential and now she’s even graduating, but prison is so horrible, so she still has to die!", it just seemed so random. Other than that, I really enjoyed the final season.

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.

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 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.

I've watched the first three episodes and I'm really enjoying it. I started it with someone else so I have to wait until I meet up with them again to watch the rest. My only problem is the gratuitous sex and nudity. I thought the scene where The Deep drops his pants and starts masturbating was great because it shocked me and I thought that was the point. But after seeing just how much random sex and nudity is in it, I think it was just to be edgy now rather than to shock and make you feel for Starlight.

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.

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.

Same with the story of him falling out a window, still hammering that one in.

regarding x files, iirc if you stop before season 7 you literally don't miss out on anything. 7th season still had some good bits but the ending cliffhanger was retarded imo so proceed with caution. 5th and 6th seasons were the best. if you stop early, shit maybe won't be that conclusive but I have seen all episodes including the cursed recent ones and it won't get any more conclusive/could retroactively spoil some enjoyment (the fucking new season)

So I've started watching Mad men. I knew nothing about it except it was really good apparently. I'm at season 4 and I like it a lot but I fucking hate Don. Hated him since the first episode and I don't know if that's how the viewer is supposed to feel about him. He is awful but it's not really shown that way ? I'm still mad that he called Betty a whore.

I've had it saved on my pc forever, planning to watch it because it's so highly praised but also not wanting to because it just reeks of glorifying 50s chauvinism, and is probably praised specifically because men love that shit.

No. 66677

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.

No. 66680

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.

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?

No. 66886

Keep watching, the finale of season 2 is amazing. That said, sometimes the show is a little too "arty" for me. I got kinda bored during all the hallucination/dream scenes and there's a lot of conversations where I wish the characters would talk faster. Still a 9.9/10 show for me.

No. 66910

I am wondering if is it possible to watch Hannibal as a person that hates gore. I mean, can it be skipped without harm for the understanding of the plot? I am interested because of Mads and the plot but a bit scared because I can't stand gore…

No. 66913

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

No. 66950

Yes, the second and third seasons are just as good if not even better, I feel like the characters, their motivations and relationships get fleshed out so much more and around season 2 is where things get really interesting and intense. Oh and the finale is very well done and satisfying, thankfully as a lot of tv shows end badly. You definitely won't be disappointed anon, have fun!

I'm currently watching Fear the walking dead, I'm half way through season 2. I find the characters incredibly boring, like they have no personality and just don't seem to interect with each other well which makes it a bit painful to watch.

Does it get better in season 3?

No. 67814

I tried to start the Good Place and I watched about 5 episodes and while i like the idea and the concept it's just not for me, the dialogue is cheesy and too ham-fisted, it tries way too hard to pander and seem deep, and the overall show just seems kinda childish. When Michael said that it's possible to get 105% perfection and that's how we got Beyonce I verbally cringed and figured out exactly what audience this show panders to. I have this problem with a lot of modern shows honestly

No. 67823

I wasn’t a fan of the first season but really enjoyed the rest of it. The pandering tends to teeter off towards the end of the first season and those types of jokes die out. I would say maybe stick it through until the second season for when they get their footing. Michael Schurr (I think?) has this issue with most of his shows (Brooklyn 99, Parks and Rec, The Office…) where the first season is meh but it gets much better.

Watching the Witcher episode 2 and (don't read if you don't want book and probably TV series spoilers)

it's super fucked up that they made Istredd teenage Yennefer's guardian figure taking into account he's her longtime lover according to a short story. He's second only to Geralt, as he provides her with a comfortable living and promises to look for a way for Yennefer to have a child. If they are not dropping this part of the plot, it feels really disturbing to me, like Istredd has groomed her when she was still an awkward, insecure teenager.

I am glad that at least Yennefer's ugliness has not been sugarcoated.
She's the best character in the whole Witcher universum tbh

No. 68646

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÷

No. 68649

Even the Polish Witcher wiki has no idea how old is Renfri lmfao. I don't think it was ever stated. Always thought she was in her twenties but might be wrong considering her character is inspired by Snow White.

I was so shocked when Istredd was called a boy, maybe there is something wrong with my eyes but he looks like at least a 19 years old dude while Yennefer acts and looks 13 or 14 years old…. what the fuck. Idk how am I supposed to reconcile their later relationship (if it happens) with that and each person spying on the other.

Agree with you on Shani,thought she was older and even then it annoyed me how Geralt fucked her (like he fucks anything female that moves and doesn't run away lmfao).
At least Yennefer keeps up his pace, really love how they are equal fucks up. I hate when fantasy protags pine for some virginal (or at least emotionally unavailable to them) damsel while they fuck every other women (like in the shit Rothfuss novels)

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.

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.

I was watching "The Casting of JonBenet" on netflix about the Ramsey girl case and it was awful, like a pretentious student project.

They know she had injuries of possible sex abuse and the actors talk for a while about the mom probably being an ultra bitch jealous of her daughter, and being close to her 40th birthday. But they don't explore the father and his previous failed marriage? They barely scratch the surface about the son and possible suspects.

I just watched The Witcher but find it rather hard to follow here and there. Is the book a good read?

No. 69213

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.

No. 69217

Oh damn, I'm not that anon but I didn't know that about the Serbian translation. Is it written in cyrillic? I guess it's still better than me trying to read it in russian though, my other option was German and the books I saw in Croatian were only translated after the popularity surge so I'm doubting them.

No. 69223

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.

No. 69339

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 another slavanon, I had to stop watching after the 4th episode. It was so bad and I'm not sure if it's worth watching any further since they've butchered so much in so little. I used to be a against casting, but the casting was nothing in comparison to all the other glaring issues this series has. I don't know why americans have to dumb down everything to such an extent but it's netflix so it's their money and their choices. I just wish they called it inspired by witcher though even that's a stretch instead of calling it adaptation.

No. 69817

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.

>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.

No. 70918

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.

No. 70957

Candace was definitely useless. They set her up to be this big bad and she ultimately did nothing of value. What was her character like in the books, btw?

No. 70971

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.

It's basically a what if? some guy showed up claiming to be Jesus and starts collecting an army of followers.

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.

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.

What's up with Netflix'all around shitty docu series?
Casting Jon Benet interviews a bunch of whos and a sadistic deviant and makes people think the mother did it, while the investigation points in an obvious direction, it's misleading.

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.

>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.

No. 83268

The hatred for Skyler is 99% misogyny, men are mad that the nagging shrew is holding their power fantasy self insert back from being as evil as he wants. Recently I was reading some reddit thread on it and someone defended their hatred by bringing up the 'passionless' handjob she gave Walt at the start of the series. I fucking can't… what on earth had Walt done to make himself sexually attractive enough to even deserve that?

No. 83270

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.

No. 83380

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.

No. 83381

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. Skylar went as far as bitching at Jesse for at the time believing Walt was using weed to alleviate his symptoms. She was narcissistic more than half the show and cared far more about the public image of the family than what he was doing.

No. 83393

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 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,

Whats your opinion on twilight, is it worth watching?
I feel like twilight came out in a era when men loved to shit on everything women liked and wanted to control everything they liked so most of twilight's criticism revolved around men and some nlog women sperging about how the characters look to weak and girly and that they dont represent vampires (how can you represent something that doesnt even exist)
So does anyone have any legit criticism of the show ?

No. 85932

I still watch it as a comfy nostalgia movie but it's not good imo. The acting is bad and the characters are boring and pretty dumb. The most interesting characters are shoved to the side in favor of Bella's dull love story (titillating when I was eleven but laughable now). It's only good for nostalgia and laughs.

No. 85933

It's sad how it's rarely brought up that Walt borderline rapes Skyler a few times throughout the show but her having an affair is used time and time again against her. Yes, it wasn't right, but it was understandable considering she was hurt and in anger and wanted some control after finding out her husband is a lying manipulative meth maker. I never hated her character when watching the show, I wasn't a big fan of her sometimes but usually I totally understood and sympathised with her situation. People make too many justifications for Walt (who sexually assaulted his wife, just gonna bring that up again) and she gets way too much hate, though thankfully it has toned down somewhat over the years imo

No. 85944

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.

No. 86017

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.

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.

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.

Anyone seen the Young Pope? I was mesmerized by it even though it's kinda strange and surreal, and totally different to what I was expecting. I thought it would be the young, progressive pope coming to fuck the conservative catholics up, but it was the total opposite. Can't say I hate an unpredictable character but I never really figured him out.

But man, the visuals were amazing, the soundtrack was this cool mix of classical and electro pop (I'm a sucker for incongruous modern music like video related kek), and Jude Law was ridiculously charismatic and compelling. I've never enjoyed his acting this much before, at some points he straight up intimidated me.

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.

total drama island will still be the best season when it comes to character development and relationships.
Action and world tour basically made so many good characters hateable and ruined relationships that shouldn't have been ruined (Courtney and Duncan were loved by total drama fans and the producers made him cheat on her with Gwen)
I also hate how they used Heather as this person that everyone would take their anger out, yes she was a bitch on the island series but she was okay in action and world tour and I don't know why everyone took their anger out on her when Courtney was just like her.

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.

Yeah I totally get that, I think that was the worst season, there was too much going on to properly focus on anything.

I know what you mean about Polly, but she doesn’t stay in that weird state for the rest of the show.

No. 94781

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.

I’m watching The Office (US version) for the first time. I like it so far but…

Am I the only one who doesn’t care for the Jim/Pam romance? Not that I dislike the characters but it comes off as super cliche and tiresome. Of course Jim is a good guy and of course Pam’s fiancée is an asshole with no redeeming qualities. Maybe it was different when it was first airing but knowing they’re gonna end up together anyway is just wasting my time honestly.

Also whoever styled them in the earlier seasons needs to be shot. I hate Jim’s stupid surfer boy haircut. And Pam looks like a Duggar girl.

Michael’s pretty terrible. It doesn’t bother me so much because I watch a lot of shows with terrible main characters (It’s Always Sunny is my favorite show) but I went in thinking he was supposed to be a loveable doofus who can be insensitive at times but man, he’s really awful. I get told that he’s get better later on but I’m not so sure about that. I know it’s a comedy show but I’m wondering how everyone (aside from Dwight) at Dunder Mifflin puts up with his shit.

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.

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.

No. 106414

YES, I'm feeling so validated rn, all of these are my thoughts exactly. Seeing so many voices praising this as the best season and not a single criticism (until now) was pretty confusing.

No. 106449

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)

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.

>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.

No. 106567

Seeing lots of discussion around Inui on here.

Imo, the problem with her was that she was not really meant to be a character, she was meant to be a plot device. She was just created to shake up the Retsuko/Haida ship and now we will probably never see her again since her job is done.

This happens in plenty of anime or other media, a character is created just to create a love triangle to cause tension between the "main" ship, and so we don't really know anything about them outside of their interest in 1/3 of the triangle. All we know is… she has similar interests to Haida? She's kind of pretty and dresses nice? It's hard to really care about her, just because of how she's used.

Anyways, she still deserves better, maybe if we are lucky we will catch a little snippet of her being happy with someone else next season.

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.

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.

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

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.

>>68654 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

if it helps Villanelle is actually based on real life hitwoman Idoia López Riaño who killed 23 people for a Spanish terror group, she'd seduce policemen she was hired to kill and once missed a target she was tailing because she was too busy checking her hair in a shop window reflection which is like something that'd happen on the show, she's free now after serving a year in prison for each victim

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.

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 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?

No. 111387

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

No. 111401

The episode was relatable to me as well, even the grandpa watching her (it was jesus for me). maybe that's why I feel kinda dirty watching it at all. Perhaps I expected this to be a light comedy and it hit too close to home lol. I feel ashamed of how much of a monkey I was back then.

No. 111425

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

No. 111427

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

No. 111681

It's a show set in the 1950s America with a mostly black cast, if that's what you consider a "SJW" show. One of the main characters is gay, but it doesn't feel pandery to me. I feel like it's just to show the homophobia during that time period. If you're not interested in shows that talk about race, then I wouldn't recommend this one.

No. 111690

I watched it. The answer is yes. It has heavy emphasis on the race issues (90% of the show). Lovecraft’s name is really only tangential, it being more witchcrafty then Lovecraftian. It comes of as unsubtle about its exploration of the racism in the 50s, and at points seems more revenge fantasy. There was also a rape scene that was sort of presented as revenge which grossed me out.

I loved this show, super engaging with realistic and well-rounded female characters, but just in case you weren’t aware the last season got cancelled before they were able to finish it due to COVID and costs.

I'm interested in this show but I hate Alison Brie, how annoying is she in GLOW? How often does she bust out her tremulous eMoTiOnAl voice?

No. 111714

I haven't seen anything else she's in but she is one of the two main characters and lacks any self esteem at the start, so she is very emotional and sobs. A lot. Seems that might be her shtick? The most I can say is that it fits her character. She kind of remains a sadsack for a good part of the show but there is growth over time. If that's annoying for you then you may want to give it a skip. I can say though that the other lead, Betty Gilpin, is really cool and a nice contrast to her whining. She struggles with her own problems but in general is more competent, self aware and strong.
