As an elitist animu snob I only watch subtitled versions so that I can better appreciate the creator's original vision.  So far, the subtitles seem to be telling me that Hideaki Anno intended that gay people don't exist, and that the words "leftist" and "terrorist" are synonyms.

Ah yeah that queer erasure is fucking gross but the actors do there best with the icky script. I tend to be a sub snob too but the OG Evangelion dub was my first anime experience 15 years ago so it's a strange exception to me (along with Cowboy Bebop and Black Lagoon, two A* dubs).

I enjoyed Dark season 1, and looked forward to the second... but now it's here I'm delaying watching as I can't remember all that happened, and I know it will be extra confusing as a result. I watched the 'story so far' trailer on Netflix... and it didn't help much.

I should probably just rewatch season 1, I guess. Likely I'll enjoy it well enough if I do it's just the thought of slogging through episodes I've already seen.

Just watched A Touch of Cloth (3 episodes; 2012-2014), which I'd been unaware of until Amazoon stuck it in front of my face a few days ago.  It's like every British crime drama meets Police Squad.  Hilarious.

I love this show - still amazed that it got made.

Charlie Brooker at his absolute silliest.

Are you sure this is on Amazon? Can't find it - unless you mean DVD rather than streaming?

Started 'Killing Eve' this week. Only at the end of season 1 but I can see why lots of my friends (particularly the ones into 'Hannibal') have been raving about it.

Two shows that I missed at the time and regretted it! Cheers!

Stranger Things 3 - good, and then it wasn't, and then it was excruciating.  The comedy Russian stuff was too tonally dissonant and a lot of the final episodes were cringe-inducingly clunky, especially one really unconvincing redemption arc.  A lot of characters sipping on dumdum juice made this quite disappointing.
