Yup, only two episodes missing(four if we count the pilots)* and a few songs from a couple other episodes which considering the legal minefield the show has been in the past is very impressive on Disney's part

*one of those probably being left off as it's guest star ended up being a pedophile

Does it have the UK spots?
Edit: for those who don't know, the UK version had fewer commercials so they had a few more minutes of content. Couldn't involve continuity or the guest star so it was usually a song, but not always.

Going off the Wikipedia episode list(which helpfully lists content not included on Disney+) it varies, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't

Some British guy named Chris Langham who I've never heard of before, apparently he was a writer on the show who got given the Guest Star role as something of a gag when Richard Pryor dropped out at the last minute

Iím finally watching Cobra Kai now that itís on a real streaming service and uh... itís kinda great? I mean it definitely looks cheap and itís not going to win any awards for production design or cinematography but the characters are sympathetic and some of the kids are genuinely funny, which is way more than I ever expected for a Karate Kid show centered around ďthat one douchebag teen villain from the originalĒ.

Now that Tell Me Your Secrets (previously titled Deadlier Than The Male when TNT commissioned it) has finally been released on Amazon Prime, are there any other lost seasons of television still floating around out there?

I thought Squirrel Girl, but apparently that never made it past the pilot stage.

(Starring Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater and Amy Brenner's, btw. Plus a kitten.)

I'm still kinda mad about New Warriors not going anywhere, they had the perfect actress lined up to play Squirrel Girl and everything

Isn't part of the set up for the new show that the Daily Planet goes bankrupt or they get fired or something?

I felt this way about the first season, but only the first season. For me the show took a nosedive when Kreese showed up. Everything abruptly shifts from a semi-plausible character study about a washed up jock who can't let go of his past, to a lawless cartoon world where a junior karate tournament in the 80s was the most important thing that has ever happened.

Everything with Kreese is kind of annoying and bad (and thatís a lot of the show) but I still enjoy everything else and the fact everyone in the town thinks karate is so important is really drat funny

I have to say I love how distinctively on brand UK-television Behind Her Eyes is with their HBTQ representation. Literally just Sherlock all over again. I'd call it offensive if not for this being one of the stupidest shows I've watched so far this year.

One of those weird coincidences just happened and I need to tell someone.

I've rarely watch Netflix (I steal most stuff but I have it for my kids) but I've been binging The Last Kingdom the last couple of weeks. The whole time I've had the poster advertising Lupin on the homepage but I've completely ignored it. I thought it might have been a spinoff of Lucifer or something (for reference, until now I was completely unaware that its a super long standing franchise/character).

Seperate to that, I decided to randomly start listening to a new miniseries of the Blank Check Podcast and decide to pick the Miyazake miniseries, he's been a director that I've got a few blind spots of and I wanted to find out whether they recommend dubs or subs. The first episode is on The Casle of Cagliostro which is a movie starring the character of Lupin III who is a decendent of Lupin! Miyazake also directed a bunch of episodes of the Manga.

So loving weird.

Anyway, has anyone watched Lupin? Is there a subs version cause this dubbing is cringe?

Yes. the subs version is much more superior and the story is great fun. I ought to make a thread for it before the second half drops.

I imagine a large % of her fashbase loves it and sees no contradiction because contrary to the current orthodoxy I believe the vast majority of viewers simply redefine media to match their own worldview & are barely influenced by it at all

Pretty much all the Netflix dubs are bad, they only put the minimum amount of effort into it. Which is fine, because dubbing is almost always dumb unless it's something made for kids.

Yeah, I tried to watch an episode of Dark with the dub and I just couldn't do it. The acting just doesn't fit and it sounds very soundbooth-y.
