Alternatively, Kim's Convenience is quite nice. Another Canadian one, on Netflix.

This popped up as a recommendation for me. Loving them so far and reminds me a little of Desmonds if translocated to Canada. Definitely has a good bit of heart rooting it all together.

Yeah, a really interesting story ruined by cliche melodramatic storylines about the investigators and phoned in acting. The ginger bearded FBI dude is such a comically bad villain it's terrible and he's not alone in his awfulness, the writing is just incredibly poor. However it's worth watching for the one episode that shows the unabombers experience at university, truly quite mad. It's a shame as the subject matter is so interesting it was really worth a better adaptation.


This is all completely spot on. The Ted Kaczynski character is especially poorly realised as they made him out to be something between a criminal mastermind and Hannibal Lector, when actually the reality is far more interesting and probably more troubling. When I’ve seen interviews with him he’s actually quite a sympathetic character, which is mad considering what he did.

 

I think the scene with the Slavic nachos may be the stupidest thing ever committed to screen.

Mitchell's Vs the Machines out today, new animation from Sony (Spiderverse) that has been getting great reviews. Can't wait to watch it tonight with

the family (and be told how much they hate it). 

To no surprise, you can only find it if you search for it.

Perhaps it depends on your viewing history? I just opened Netflix and it was the featured item on the landing page for me.

I watch plenty of animations. Didn't even see it in the Children profile too :/

The Oscar winning short film Two Distant Strangers is essential viewing. Give it half an hour of your time tonight.

 

Thanks for this, just watched it in my lunch break. Outstanding piece of work. A real punch to the gut short film with a couple of fantastic performances. 

 

Would also recommend not even reading the little Netflix synopsis if you can avoid it and go in cold.

The Paul Bettany stuff is good. Everything else is a bit forgettable.


I have no idea what you’re referring to, but this is sound advice for practically everything Paul Bettany’s ever been in.

Not Netflix (HBO show) but Mare of East town is really bloody good. Kate Winslet is fantastic in it. 

 

It's a crime/murder whodunit that's really well acted, shot and written. 3 episodes in and it moves along at a compelling pace and not filled with the usual bullshit filler (it's an HBO production after all)

Ragnarok season 2 coming May 27th.

 

https://www.youtube.com/tv?gl=GB&hl=en-GB#/watch?v=I9XxsHy7oO4

 

 

The first is abit of a hidden gem. Norwegian coming of age, teen drama based around Norse mytholgy. It was perhaps hurt abit by lack of budget at times especially in the finale. Hopefully they gave season 2 abit more cash and it lives upto season 1. The two mains Magne and Lauritas aka  

Spoiler

Thor and Loki are fantastic.

Thought I was the only person who watched this. It had its moments and was intriguing to begin with but it ended up in so bad it’s good territory. The school disco dance scene has to be some of the weirdest television ever made.

We watched it last year, or whenever it came out and thought it was great in a not going to mention it on rllmuk kind of way.

Trailer for Love Death + Robots volume 2

 

 

I liked the first run so pleased they are doing more. None of the stories were amazing but it was creative and had some great visuals, so looking forward to the next lot. 

Volume 2 is out today!

Watched 6 of the 8 episodes of season 2 of Love , Death & Robots. Lot  less T+A in general  and a bit more twilight zone with some of the episodes, the animation as ever is fantastic, episodes seem shorter so the stories can be a little slight but worthwhile.

Snow in the Desert floored me in terms of its animation. 

 

I mean, how?

There were times during that where I genuinely couldn't tell if it was real actors or CGI

 

Wee bit of background on that one from the author...

Saw the trailer. The unmistakable stink of Ryan Murphy.


Isn’t that a good thing? I don’t think I’ve seen anything of his I didn’t like.

I know! I assumed it was some kind of light CG overlay on top of real performances. 
 

Halston is Ryan Murphy? I’m there!

Not for me. his style really grates with me.


Really? I love it. Feud and the Versace American Crime Story are top tier for me, and even the trashy stuff like Horror Story and Ratched are good fun.
