Netflix – Suggestions
The trouble with netflix is you get sucked in to watching some utter rubbish. Last week it was Salvation (trust me the time investment won’t be rewarded by the ending), the last couple of days I’ve been off work and I’m watching Reign, which is terrible. Costume drama mixed with teen angst. It’s a horrific waste of time, but completely addictive. My daughters would probably like it, bit like The Next Step but in 16th century France.Posted 3 months ago
Just after they’d introduced the idea of the spore drive (which made me think of bistromathematics, obvs), there was a recorded video of some Starfleet personnel in peril.
You could hear someone say “Zaphod’s dead” or similar. We had the subtitles on, might have been easy to miss otherwise.Posted 3 months agogreatbeardedoneMember
Russian detective drama ‘method’ is actually quite enjoyable.
Nowhere near as stilted or robotic as uk crime dramas.
Unless you speak Russian, you’ll have to make do with subtitles.
Though, from the actors demeanour and mannerisms, it could easily be overdubbed with a broad Scottish accent.Posted 3 months agoroneMember
Enjoyed the Sinner. Excellent start if a baggy middle, saved by a genuinely rewarding last couple of episodes.
If only Twin Peaks: the return could’ve been as clever, creepy and so smartly put together.
In fact the triple bill of Mindhunter, Ozark and The Sinner have been some of most enjoyable ‘telly’ I’ve ever seen.
It’s a winning formula to keep the season lengths sub 12 episodes and the duration of each one to be as short as it needs to be.Posted 3 months ago
