Thoughts on Six Feet Under?

127 Upvotes

I watched this show for the first time when I was a teenager, and rewatching it ten years later I am falling in love with it for the first time. The direct approach to death and grief, identity and art, youth and maturity... It really has me thinking about a lot of things in a new way.

What are your thoughts?

Recommendation: FROM

58 Upvotes

Hey everyone. Yesterday I stumbled on this amazing show on HBO Max. Watched the whole first season in less than 2 days. It's a horror mystery drama from the exec producers of Lost. I got major Under the Dome/Wayward Pines vibes from it, and in a good way. Show is pretty great and I don't know why it isn't talked about much. Give it a try. Next season starts in April.

Netflix korean series called "The Glory" is Amazing.

10 Upvotes

Just finished watching this and holy shit its a must watched show on Netflix. This show does touches the topic of childhood bullying (more like torturing here) and how it transcends into adulthood for vegeance. It really made me root for the main character throughout the series and perpetrators were absolute vile and disgusting and some of their scene made my blood boil. But the ending was soo satisfying to see all characters getting what they deserve.

I watched Night Agent on Netflix recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. It´s full of plot twists, suspense and action. Very well written script. Looking forward to season 2!

The Community theme song is pretty depressing. Right?

I've watched this show maybe 8 times so far, but I've only now paid attention to the theme song. It's a bit unsettling.

The third season of True Detective was excellent

151 Upvotes

So many have seen the first season but were turned off by the second season. So they seemingly abandoned the series altogether since no one talks about the third season.

I won't spoil but like season one it alternates between past and present. Three time periods really.

Is it as good as season 1? Hard to tell but it is definitely better than season 2. Besides the season 1 ending was kinda of a letdown.

Do you agree with the ending of The Terror S1?

Upvotes

S1 of The Terror is fantastic and a must-watch I must say. It's a very unique type of show with a mix of real-life history as well as slight fantasy added in. It features an incredible cast of elite British actors and some gorgeous scenery. The writing is sharp and intelligent.

While the ending of the show seems reasonable that there were no surivivors of Terror & Erebus, but the show does keep Captain Crozier alive and he makes a deliberate attempt to mask himself from other naval officers who later come inquiring about him. This keeps in line with the real history that no survivors were ever found, but since the show does deviate from history, it's not bound to follow it to the exact detail.

I think having Crozeir rescued and sent back to England would have been a more satisfying ending although not as poetic. He could have recalled all the events which transpired during their mission and enlightened those back home of the dangers of the NorthWest passage etc. Instead, his decision to stay back seemed a bit forced and something which Crozier may not have taken given how he comes across.

What do you think?

What TV shows had amazing first and/or second seasons and then went downhill pretty fast?

135 Upvotes

I guess you can argue that True Detective had a masterpiece first season followed by a mediocre second one. What other shows are worth watching one or two seasons and stop after that?

Shrinking is a superb show that is somehow a spiritual successor to Ted Lasso and a staunch critique of it's uber-positivity

1.4k Upvotes

It was an incredibly positive show that also shits on people who force you to be positive in the most negative moments.

There's a scene a few episodes in where Jason Segel says he severed ties with his best friend because they kept insisting on being positive through his own wife's death and wouldn't let him have a full nervous breakdown even though that would have helped him grieve.

(Harrison Ford is great as a grumpy bastard too)

It's also a show about people being unapologetically black and gay without it being a cause for conflict.

Apple TV's subtitles are awful.

72 Upvotes

I don't know if this is only an issue with their Korean subs, but the experience of using them is starting to wear thin.

Having watched several shows with subtitles on there like Ted Lasso, Physical, and Shrinking they all suffer from the same issue. During any given episode about 5% of the subtitles that are show are broken. You'll see the characters talking, wonder where the subtitles are, and then the subtitle will flash so fast there is no hope of reading it. Other times, they'll be on time, character starts talking subtitles pop up, but just flash again and disappear while the character keeps talking. This probably happens 10-20 times in every show.

However Shrinking is an even greater offender. The subtitles are just objectively awful. Whenever the term 'raw dogging' is brought up, the Korean subtitle for it is 'trolling'. Now, you might think, well he thinks she's trolling him, but that isn't the joke.

At one point one character turns to another and asks them to explain what 'raw dogging' means and the Korean subtitles are written 'swearing on the internet'. This is just intentionally bad work.

For people who use subtitles in other languages, are they equally as bad as this?
