For me, I'm a huge fan of the books and they did good by them. Very good for the most part, really.

I love the books! To be honest, I kinda fuckin' hate about 80% of the changes they made, but the pressures of budget and the urgency to get the thing stood up were paramount

All your Nanny talk made me watch just a YouTube complication of Nilesís burns on CC, and Iím angry itís not streaming in the US. It weirds me out that I have such vivid memories of watching it despite being a teenager not in its target demographic at all, and no clear memory of doing the actual sit down watching.

It was a family show so you were? I remember liking it in my teens.

Yeah, it's def a sitcom for all ages. I remember the reruns would always play before school. Most of the writing and jokes tho are for an older audience, been enjoying the show more than ever in my trip down memory lane.

It's usually just annoying contrarian bullshit, he's had at least three accounts (...Of Science!, Sleeveless, and Guy Mann, and he went back to Sleeveless after the Guy Mann one ate a ban). It's kind of annoying because when they drop the act they're not awful, and have some interesting things to say, but go look at their rap sheet for some links to some really annoying and tasteless poo poo and run posts.

The mods called out sleeveless as Guy Mann on their rap sheet, and I donít remember who told me about the Of Science thing but their last post was 12/25/14 which is also Sleevelessís regdate, so it checks out.

Lady Stoneheart was a wack character though. If anything, we should mourn the loss of Strong Belwas.

Real talk, I feel like Stoneheart undercut the Red Wedding's impact since even if she's barely Cat, bringing a dead character back so soon (narratively speaking) felt off to me.

So I know I'm months late but I finally got around to watching season 5 of Black Mirror. What a fart of a season. I literally forgot what the plot to Smithereens was just a few hours after I watched it because it was just that forgettable.

Until I read this, I had also forgotten that Black Mirror had a new season out. I think really not digging season 4 after the first episode kind of killed it for me. Bandersnatch was fun enough but after spending a day watch/playing it I didn't really feel the need to do it over again.

Just finished episode 7 of Jett. I mostly lurk here but no one I know has even heard of this show and I had to find a place to say something about it. Sweet gently caress this show is something else. It starts out seeming like a fairly simple thing and by ep 7 itís this pretty singular hybrid of genres and aesthetics.

Does anyone if the score for the show is available anywhere?

Not yet, but theres a list of the tracks they used. I've been keeping an eye out. Might be time to bend cinemaxs ear on twitter.

There is a show coming to netflix that might intrigue y'all(this is apparently the page it's supposed to be on, though right now it's blank). It's called Dorohedoro, and it's an adaptation of a manga that is one of the more unique series and settings I've encountered, anime or no. It's just so loving WEIRD, and the rules of its world especially so. It's filthy, not a single surface in the entire series is free from dirt, dings, dents, damage, grime, chips, rust, mold, etc. It's horrifically, grotesquely, ludicrously, comically violent. It's very silly and goofy, juxtaposed against the regular occurrence of horrible death, or sometimes alongside those.

It's set in a dilapidated semimodern city, "Hole", where the denizens are regularly abducted and experimented upon by sorcerers. One such unlucky person, Kaiman, had his head replaced by a lizard's, and his memories stolen. To regain them, he bites the heads of sorcerers he catches and a mysterious man who lives in the back of his throat judges whether they were involved or not. If not, then he kills them. He spends most of his time with Nikaido, the owner of the grungy diner Hungry Bug, and part-time sorcerer hunter. She's the lady in the OP of the show, which is weird, makes little to no sense to someone who has not read the series, and yet is utterly perfect when you ask anyone who has. I hope you like gyoza!

Here's a teaser of the first couple minutes of the show subbed, I believe english Netflix will be uploading the whole thing(maybe dubbed?) when the season has fully aired. which seems like a weird way to do it, to me, instead of just airing them as they come out in Japan, but whatever.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BrrHlda25E&hd=1

It is a wild, surreal series where basically everyone is a mass murderer clown idiot because that's just the sort of world they live in, almost all the major characters are super fun and entertaining despite them all essentially being serial killers. I watched the raw of the first episode and it looks to be extremely faithful to the original manga, and the amount of detail and effort put in to make sure absolutely everything is as run-down and dirty as possible is kind of staggering. The character CGI models look pretty good most of the time, too, though there are some off moments.
