Yeah dozens of hour long episodes of mediocrity to me.

After being just pretty good for a couple of seasons IMO.

And I love corny mafia drama movies.

BTW i lied about stopping with TV shows.

I've been watching Il Miracolo (The Miracle), though i didn't binge at least.


(all shots are from ep. 1).

It's really good, there are a couple of plot developments that play a bit too fast and loose with science for my taste, but still within the realm of the believable, and i find it annoying how some characters have an accent, while others have that dumb perfect diction you use to dub foreign movies.
It's really gorgeous and has a very peculiar vibe though.
If you like surreal shit like Twin Peaks, it's very much recommended.

Also it's got Godspeed You! Black Emperor AND Swans tracks, in the score.  :aah

Outside of Europe, i'm not sure it's available to get anywhere but torrent sites, but at least there are eng subs going around.

Watched one episode of the Dark Crystal, i appreciate the massive effort, and it looks very charming and beautiful (and grotesque), but i don't think i'll go ahead with it.
I was just bored to tears by the story/characters/world.

If i was younger i'd probably love it though, the creatures are cool to looks at.

Binged the first four episodes of The Righteous Gemstones, so good. It's a dark comedy about a family of ultra rich Televangelists. Think the Falwells only somehow more corrupt and evil. The cast is amazing, Danny McBride, Walton Goggins, John Goodman!

Also for The Bore it features a lot of man ass and dick.

Just finished first season of The Sinner, it was kind of alright all said and done. I liked the detective's character, they struck the right balance between him being kind of broody and a bit on the spectrum without making him go full distinguished mentally-challenged fellow like the guy from the River show.

The mystery itself ended up being kind of disappointing, it started out engrossing enough but it lost steam as the series progressed. Wasn't too big of a fan of teenage melodrama in my murder mystery series and the frequent flash backs were meandering constantly retreading similar grounds.

Yeah, I quite liked it, and quite liked season 2 as well.
I think the biggest shock was that Jessica Biel can actually act, given how little evidence of that I've seen in anything of her prior career I've watched

I'll watch any old scifi shit that gets broadcast, so I'm going to recommend the critically panned Another Life on netflix as a really great hatewatch.

Because it's not a scifi show. Its a low budget teen horror flick, where its a bunch of stupid self-obsessed millenial arseholes acting like dicks, and then being killed off one by one.

Its glorious :lawd

  • It doesn't know wtf it wants to be, so half the show is an Arrival knock off with scientists on earth trying to figure shit out and the other half is a BSG reboot knock off with a crew in space potentially representing whats left of humanity all alone and out for vengeance
  • It has a pretty great conceit, that it has a ton of backup characters in stasis, so whenever their computer guy (or whatever) gets red-shirted, they just defrost a new one :lol
  • It makes a super strong case that we should probably let the military handle shit like deep space expeditions, and not just a bunch of random fucking millenials who wanted to live their best life and do the most stupid shit you can imagine

Finished Dark Crystal that was pretty great, the middle was a little bit of a slog but the end two episodes are really good.

I ended up loving it. The main character can be insufferable, especially initially, but it feels like it's a symptom of her mental illness. It mixes surrealism with her mental illness that makes you question the nature of the blending realities in a way that's really poignant.

There's also criticism of the glorifying of mental illness as a sort of sign of brilliance or untapped power. But I feel like it balances this intelligently. A true work of fantasy but still very aware of the sensitive subject it's deeply involved with

Never has a show taken such a steep dive in quality at about the 3/4 mark as Altered Carbon.

Recently was browsing through Netflix a bit drunk when I came across 'The Naked Director'.
Japanese series about some famous porn director from the 80's. Gave it a shot and after a few days have seen all the episodes.

It's actually better than you might expect, with some great character building and a dramatization of events that apparently really happened.

Weird as hell and very different than your usual Netflix show though. I read they're doing a second season as well :doge

I think The Deuce is also written/produced by David Simon, so your comment is not surprising.

Yeah, in Japan it's the go-to preview which plays on EVERYONE'S Home screen right now. Which is, actually, pretty weird considering it is very adult in its content.

Watched a couple of episodes of "Marianne" a french horror show on Netflix.
It's actually pretty good in the spooks department, it treads very familiar ground in almost every respect, but the horror set pieces are mostly well crafted from a visual standpoint.

The main character is also fairly interesting, but that's where the problems start: She's the only character been given any form of depth so far, and she can't really carry the show alone properly, so what they do is... they move and a breakneck pace.
At the end of episode 1 (of 10) you're already in what would be the end of act 2, in a regular horror movie, and then it keeps going at this pace.
That may sound good, but actually it detracts from the potential tension they could build and just makes the spooky moments feel less impactful, when you have 1 every other sequence (almost literally).

They should've given some more depth to side characters, slowed down the pace, introduce some doubt into the development ("is she crazy?" "Is there really a ghost haunting her?") of the plot.

The way it is now, it almost feels like an action version of something like The Conjuring/The Ring, with the ghost/witch being given a recurring, talking role in every episode (the actress playing her is really fun to watch, too).

Will continue to watch this for sure, though.

Finished Marianne and pretty much, my initial impressions were carried out through the end.
There aren't many decent horror tv shows, so it's not too bad, but they definitely needed a better cast to properly carry the show, because what is there, is a bit too cartoonish and shallow to do it.
The characters actually have elements that could make them interesting, but the pace is so fast, that they never get time to properly explore anything properly, and come off as cardboard ideas, instead.

Also the actress playing the witch in the first half, really made a lot of the scares better, than what you get in the second half.

I'm liking the mythology they hinted at though, i'm a sucker for any horror involving witchcraft, satanism, the devil and all that shit.

Unfortunately this was correct. The last fourth was still good, but it didn't live up to the expectations the rest of the show had set. Excited for the second season next year in any case.

A few eps into The Fall. The pacing of this show is so deliberate. At first I found it ponderous but I'm warming up to it and it's fresh compared to the breakneck pace of other procedurals. I didn't realize it but I really missed the deep, engrossing character development of shows like The Killing.

Still need to see Top of the Lake. Sorry toku and don

It's too bad the main elves or whatever are hideous (but not in a good way like the other creatures) and the main main guy is the biggest bitch of them all. Every other visual though :lawd It was a little dumb when it went too much GoT at one point, but overall it was told well enough too.
