There were several scenes where a buzzing fly made an appearance. It happened often enough that I picked u on it, figuring if it happened by chance during filming they would likely have re-shot the scene. It must be deliberate was my deduction, but no reference was made to it during S1.

I'll be honest, I didn't notice that at all. However, a bit of googling suggests that it could well be relevant for series 2. Potential spoilers abound though if you go looking for it.

Yup, I had a quick google and saw in big letters spoilers for season 1 and possible for season 2 - if they're based on the comic.

I won't be going looking there then, but patting myself on the back for being the observant type!

I still love the way my attitude changed to the characters. I flip flop from feeling sorry and empathising with them to thinking they're dicks.

Loved it.

Stranger Things S3

5/10


Another show that lost its way. I lost all interest by episode 5. Russians building a secret massive underground base and a monster the size of a building that is invisible to everyone except our heroes. :roll:

Some of the comments in this video are spot on. Pace, plot and characterization is all over the shop and any sense of gritty realism or believably is sacrificed for plot and story beats. And stop with the nostalgia fixation on everything 80s. I am a child and teen of the 80s and I love that decade but even I know when enough is enough.



They should really stop now at season 3. This was a one season at best.

Also, yay, season 3 GLOW on Netflix! :o

Also also, watch GLOW! :x
Yusss! Season 3 is just as superb as the first two.

Also finished The Boys, which was as good as others have suggested. I love the dark humour.

GLOW is a cracking show, I'm going to be really peeved if it falls victim to the Netflix three-season curse (RIP Santa Clarita Diet :()

I finished Season 2 of Timeless. Really good and recommended if you like time travel, but ends on a cliff-hanger and was cancelled, sadly. Thankfully, a couple of longer, "finale" episodes were made to finish the story, but these do not appear (yet) to be on Netflix.

Such is the song of the nether world
The hissing of rats
And the jarring chants of angels

Into The Badlands

Utterly bonkers, brilliant and ridiculous that they cancelled it. Binged season 1 today, it's fab.

Page 11 has my comments on it:
Into the Badlands -
Rapidly became one of my favourite shows this year. Absurd Martial Arts / physical combat post apocalyptic show with supernatural powers of some kind. Put simply - there's NOTHING else out there like this, which makes it GREAT! It IS ridiculous, but get over the sometimes cheesy set pieces and slightly OTT acting by some of the characters, and it actually tells a pretty fun story. Plus - come on! We have no more Black Sails for piracy - so let's go for something a little more physical instead! :P
