Im not sure why thats not a more popular plot device. Killing off most of the main characters right after developing them enough to the point that you care about them, and then introducing a whole new cast. I feel like only the japanese are the ones ballsy enough to do that kind of thing.

 

Yup! They take risks!

Anyone gonna check out the premiere of Lovecraft Country? First episode is on HBO this Sunday. Reviews have been pretty great so far.   https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/lovecraft_country/s0

In one week, I’ll be seeing Us. I already have my tickets. I can’t wait. It’s been my most anticipated movie.

Death Note really comes into mind. I almost didn't even wanna watch the last 5 eps of the season, cuz I was like,

 

"whut?? lol. the entire 26 eps 2 seasons I just invested into this thing, has all been completely and entirely replaced, to a new arch.  wait a minute. huh?"

 

lol it was cool tho.  this show and a couple others are really harping off death notes braniac type shit.  audience members like it.

 

 

  actually in ep 2, I thought "they should really look at their surroundings before entering the game."  sure enough, the bus was labeled GOAL.  I think (I know) the directors shoot scenes like this oh purpose, to allow viewers who want that experience to -- with difficulty -- figure things out for themselves.  shit is dope.  I paused so many times in ep 8 trying to figure out who the witch would be. lol. I think I sorta guessed it once, but I switched like 4+ times anyways it doesn't count lfmao.   good shit. overhyped by now but I hope Ike enjoys it too.

Started this show during qurantine before getting hooked on Search Party. The first 3 eps I saw were good. Looking back this kind of the vibe from Alice in Borderland slightly mixed with the human element of Walking Dead. Basically it's a plane that gets hijacked and they have to keep the plane perpetually in the sundown regions of the world. It's definitely a more grounded type of show and they have to deal with shit like refueling and figuring out their timing to avoid the sun. Half the people are shady, shit goes down.

The Undoing was decent, but ends too abruptly and doesn't really flesh out its characters to the extent that it should.

 

7/10

the acting was excellent, though. predictable af, though. i'm going to have to disagree about the character development and abrupt ending.

Elena was a paper thin character overall. She comes off as very mysterious and slight eccentric but after the first episode (when shes murdered) the show makes no effort to flesh her out in any way, besides some vague references to her artistry and potential mental illness. Her death becomes way less impactful especially when compared to the victims in something like The Killing, who you end up learning and discovering so much about.

 

John was also not that great. In the 2nd half when it becomes increasingly obvious that he might have done it, they touch on events in his past (getting his sister killed and falling out with his family) but do nothing with it. Even just a few flashbacks to him as a kid that establish his inability to be emphatictic or care would have been very effective.

 

 

It felt like a shallower version of The Night Of overall.

They're pretty similar conceptually tho. The Night Of just pulls off those themes and concepts better :mjpls:

it pulls them off differently. both are excellent in their own way. agree to disagree :mjpls:
