Wellington season 3 has been really strong so far, better than season 2 by my estimation!

Man Australian advertisements are weird. They like have some guy on that tells you why you should buy this thing and it'll be useful for you. It's not like American ads that directly assault your id and make no effort to be intelligible to the superego.

Trust me as an Australian, there are still plenty of ads that directly assault your id and make no effort to be intelligible to the superego.

Stoner Sloth was the best commercial of all time and it inspired me forever... to be high.

Curious since you guys are talking VPNs do any of you know a way to put one on my shiny new XBox One Series X other than connect it up to my computer or router w/ vpn? Mainly just wish there was an XboX app with a quick country toggle so I could easily switch countries to vary the content I watch while I'm being lazy.

Because if I tell you, you'll tell your friends, your friends are callin' me on the horn all the time, I gotta show up at shopping centers for openings and sign autographs and shit like that and it makes my life a *hell*. Okay? A living hell.


Another great episode! Also note that the fake newspaper headlines in the opening credits are different every episode, I only just realised recently.

I'm pretty sure that kind of stuff needs to be done through the router.

Parker's quest to rent a room from every suspect and witness they encounter is very funny.

I liked the Australian ad for Melbourne that's like "There's so much to do in Melbourne! We have... a museum! Restaurants! Movie theaters! A river! A park?"

It's a spin-off of the original movie starring the cops that came to investigate. It's pretty good!

Also Nick turns up in one episode, as well as the leading of the werewolves (not swearwolves)

You can't binge. It airs on CW with 1 ep a week - and then the ep goes live on streaming services the day after it airs.

edit: Well I guess you could wait and binge it all. But who the gently caress would do that?

This is not at all one of those shows that has been made with an intent to export it, it's VERY New Zealand focused. I would think most Americans would need subtitles to understand the basic dialogue, never mind the actual slang and local references. Hopefully it does well on HBO Max, I can't see it lasting long on broadcast.

I've heard New Zealanders confuse each other with their penchant for picking vowels at random, so yeah as an American I don't feel bad about putting on subtitles. Plus, I'd never figure out the place names otherwise.

I think binging Wellington Paranormal would make it get old pretty fast. It's not a deep or lore-focused show, the characters have zero depth, it's just a bunch of poo poo NZ cops dealing with the paranormal in the same way they deal with everything else. It's great on a weekly basis.

This is true, I watched it pretty intensely and burned out in season two pretty hard. It's not like WWDITY, the basic plot of every episode is pretty much exactly the same, just the details change.

Once weekly seems like the perfect rate to me
