Title: Netflix/Streaming Suggestions
Post by: Kid Icarus on Thursday 4 October 2012, 11:07:08 pm
I know we have a film thread, but saying as I'm lazy, I thought it would be good to have a Netflix suggestions thread for other lazy people that watch predominantly only things that are on Netflix.

There are the obvious choices (30 Rock, Mad Men, Breaking Bad etc) but it would be good to know about the hidden gems on there, like King of Kong, Adaptation and even classics that we might not have realised were on there like Kramer vs Kramer and White Chicks.

You've just basically got me annoyed with Netflix - I used to be able to see a list of what I've watched online and go down and rate things but it can't find it now.

My suggestion is to get LoveFilm.

Just this week they've added to their streaming section...The Muppet Christmas Carol, Anaconda, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, As Good As It Gets, The Bone Collector, Jerry Maguire, Desperado, Cable Guy, Last Action Hero, Pretty Woman, Groundhog Day, Cruel Intentions, Jumanji, Ghostbusters 1 & 2, U Turn, Karate Kid, Face Off, Waterboy, Tombstone, The Last Detail, Bad Boys, Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Director's Cut, Street Fighter, A Few Good Men, From Dusk Till Dawn, Hook plus about 50 more.

That'll do you for 2 months.

How often do they add new content to Netflix in the UK? There's plenty to work on now for me like, but I'm just wondering if they keep it fresh on a regular basis with new films? Also why have they got so few recent films on there? 50/50 is probably the most recent one. Still a cracking service though, I've been watching Teachers and a few old 90s action films for the past couple of weeks.

Netflix is much better than Lovefilm. Just wish there was a queue/watch later option when you manage to find a few interesting movies. The app isn't the best in the world.

Just watch them for a few seconds and they'll go in your recently watched, not ideal but it'll do until they sort of the watch later option.

I'm actually watching Dora on it right now.  IIRC If you selected a film it gave you the option to "add to queue". Your queue then became one of the lists, like "Recently Watched". Not used it for ages tbh, we struggle to get through our DVR as it is, and only really use Netflix for the kids right now. Can't wait until we can use it again, you know, in 16 years time, when they go to college.

I got in touch with their customer service about it and was told there were no immediate plans to introduce that functionality in the UK.

Which is f***ing ridiculous given that it'll just be a line of code or something.

Part of the fun is just cruising through random lists throwing the odd thing on your queue. It's amazing how many things you discover that you never even realized existed.

The layout is poor on both Netflix and Lovefilm. If you go on to the Netflix website there are s*** loads of films that aren't only the main tabs in the app. You should also be able to create your own tabs. I've got both and will probably cancel Lovefilm, Netflix is much better.

Netflix's streaming catalog is about to lose nearly 2000 movies.

As of May 1, 2013, Netflix will officially have 1794 fewer titles in its streaming repository. Now, before you freak out too much, this isn't as bad as the Great Netflix Starzageddon of 2012. After Netflix and Starz were unable to renew their streaming agreements with one another, more than a 1,000 films — including many of the newer films in Netflix's streaming catalog — disappeared from the service.

This time, most of the titles (you can see the full list here) are inconsequential and include titles such as Caged Fury (yes, that's a real movie starring Erik Estrada) and 1998's Deep Impact. Still, we're also losing Cruel Intentions, which makes my 16-year-old heart break into thousands of tiny pieces.

For his part, Brobible's Andy Moore will be doing a viewing party for Big Daddy tonight.

So why are these titles leaving Netflix? Licensing. The titles belong to Warner Bros., MGM and Universal and will soon only be accessible through the Warner Archive Instant service. Yeah, I didn't know about that service either. Apparently for $10 a month you can get a selection of streaming films only slightly better than what Redbox Instant offers. Who knew!

While this purge might not be of Netflix's most important titles, it could be a sign of things to come. Earlier this month, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that he was considering letting a broad television deal with Viacom Networks lapse. That would mean that shows from Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1 and BET could all disappear from the service at the end of May.

Now, losing Cruel Intentions is one thing, but if I lose Teen Mom and SpongeBob SquarePants, I'm seriously going to be unhappy.

What sub-par Netflix movie will you miss the most? Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE, Tuesday, April 30, 8:46 p.m. EDT: Joris Evers, director of global corporate communications at Netflix, has reached out to Mashable, providing the following comments.

"Netflix is a dynamic service, we constantly update the TV shows and movies that are available to our members. We will add more than 500 titles May 1, but we also have titles expiring, this ebb and flow happens all the time."

"We are selective about what’s available to watch on Netflix. We often license TV shows and movies on an exclusive basis, so we can provide a unique experience. We’ll forego, or choose not renew, titles that aren’t watched enough. We always use our knowledge about what our members love to watch to decide what’s available on Netflix. Our goal is to be an expert programmer, offering a mix that delights our members, rather than trying to be a broad distributor.”

Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Wednesday 1 May 2013, 09:28:03 am
Things like this always happen.

Netflix has proven that a service for movie/tv digital distribution is popular and profitabble, so now all the movie and TV studios want in on the act. Yet, they're totally missing the part where it was the cross selection of movies and TV shows that made Netflix such a great option and value for money. Will anyone really want to pay up $10 per movie studio streaming service?
Title: Re: Netflix suggestions
Post by: Super Duper Branko Strupar on Wednesday 1 May 2013, 09:42:37 am
It's $10 a month for that Warner thing I think.
Title: Re: Netflix suggestions
Post by: ObiChrisKenobi on Wednesday 1 May 2013, 10:32:34 am
Yeah, that's what I was saying.

Why do they think it's worth that? The draw of Netflix is it's content, which is a very large selection of TV and Movies from various studios. I can't imagine very many people are going to spend the same amount of money on each distributor platform if they take all their content from Netflix to try their own DD service.

I'm not really a TC series kind of person. If I am I'll atch it when it's on, going back and visiting any Ive missed doesn't seem like a valid use of my time.

Instead of remaining in a static queue (or suffering entirely random changes) Netflix is applying its algorithms to users lists, automatically sorting each one by what it believes people will want to watch next. Director of Product Innovation Michael Spiegelman says in a blog post that members preferred this feature in tests, but if you're committed to the DIY method then it can be disabled in favor of manual sorting.

Nah, Rubicon TV in Norway made the first season for the Norwegian channel NRK. Netflix then bought the rights and since then they've co-produced it. (Season two onwards)

Starting September 6th, Season 1 of NBC's The Blacklist will be available to watch (or re-watch, for diehard fans) on Netflix. This acquisition came with a hefty price tag though. $2 million an episode is what Netflix shelled out.

As Deadline reports, Netflix just entered into what is believed to be the "biggest subscription video-on-demand deal" in history with Sony Pictures TV. This $2 million per episode price stands for Season 1 and all future seasons of the James Spader series.

Loads of people bang on about Peaky Blinders...not convinced. I also hate House with a passion, utter balls.

Recently I've watched 'All is Lost' with Robert Redford, which was pretty good.
Newest season of Trailer Park Boys which is absolutely stellar.

It's easy to switch to the US version though.

Honestly don't think Blackfish is all that good. Yeah, it's horrible and eye opening and so on but it's a grim watch and (although I do doubt that it would make a great deal of difference) isn't balanced because they couldn't get SeaWorld to talk to them.

It's alright, but in terms of being a documentary, it's nothing on the likes of The House I Live In.

So started watching Stranger Things today, three episodes in so don't really want to go in to that thread, and it's more of a general Netflix discussion I've been having with myself.
I know the phrase "Netflix is killing it" has been used a lot in the last year or so, but it really is true. Currently, they've got House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things, Bloodline, Daredevil & Jessica Jones (and more Marvel shows to come), The Get Down, Arrested Development, Trailer Park Boys, BoJack Horseman, F is for Family and Making a Murderer ongoing. While the quality of the best stuff on HBO is probably better than that on Netflix, they can't match the quantity of great shows that Netflix has.

Narcos is amazing as well and I'm really looking forward to S2.

No way Bloodline or Arrested Development are the same quality as the rest, and I wouldn't include Trailer Park Boys either seeing as they've just taken over distribution.  Still an impressive lineup.

HBO's problem is that it barely makes anything.  Usually only has one or two big shows running at a time, and a handful of comedies.  What does it have right now other than Game of Thrones and True Detective?  In the last decade, what have they actually come up with apart from those and Boardwalk Empire?

If you look past how the designated survivor is handpicked by the president and briefed days, if not weeks, in advance on policies and current ongoings a president would need to know about - as well as the fact there are higher ranking survivors than the designated survivor roaming about (which would mean they would become president) - as well as the designated survivor being in Washington, which is f***ing nonsensical, as you don't f***ing put the designated survivor within reach of a f***ing atomic bomb.

I need a breather.

Anyways, yeah. I've watched it. If you look past the above - and more, which I haven't got the time to go into right now, it's kinda alright I guess.

If you don't know the minutiae of American politics it's great.
Pretty much :lol:

There is an Amanda Knox documentary up as well.

On SkyscraperCity there is a discussion about the BBC. I've been saying that the BBC don't offer value for money and have been using Netflix as an example. At the moment I only watch Dr Who on the BBC (there is no series this year), Still Game on Friday but that is it. Compare this to paying £7.49 a month for Netflix which works out less than the TV licence and the difference in quality programming is massive.
Netflix are also expanding their offering to include documentaries as well which is where the BBC used to be best at.

The BBC stands for British Broadcasting Corporation.  It's a public service, it doesn't provide the stuff you want, it's providing a service to the country.   Comparing it to Netflix is ridiculous.

She showed zero sympathy for the victim which doesn't mean she is a stone cold killer, but its abnormal behavior. I also found her testimony about the morning where she arrived and the door was open, she had a shower and then went to her boyfriend's after seeing some blood just way too unbelievable.

Again I don't think she personally killed her, but I think she was present or knew who killed her.

The press mush in the documentary though... what an utter bell end, no shame whatsoever and no sympathy towards he victim.

Also the prosecutor seemed odd and full of himself, but he made some decent observations, what kind of killer covers a dead body with a quilt for example? I firmly believe what happened wasn't cold blooded murder, but a sex game went wrong. It would be interesting to see what levels of alcohol or drugs were in the victim, if at all, and indeed the suspects. Such a strange case though. The poor lass how died and her family, that's who I feel for.

Yeah, fair points man.  Forgot about the Daily Mail(?) reporter though.  Awful. 

I used to think she did it, for what it's worth.  The fact she sells the story of the morning of the murder with such, well, passion?  Suggests to me someone is kidding themselves.  But that's no basis to convict someone.  :lol:

That's harsh. I think they benefitted from a modest charm, allowed it to be all about the story, which held their own.

A bigger budget doesn't guarantee a better production.

Westworld is a fine example. You can see that so much has been invested in convincing the viewer that it is technically possible, and it magnifies any little detail that suggests it would not. That's not a complaint just a personal observation.

A bit like Ashley Cole. If I was to pay one man £130,000 to do a job, I would be angry if he ever made a mistake. But I am also aware that humans are incapable of not making mistakes, so I would never place that expectation on a man.

*Just remembered £130,000 is nowt these days, should say if I' paying more than anybody has previously paid.

I doubt the budget would compare to the $100million dollars spent on the pilot of Westworld.

I think it did like, you could tell it was all shot on a fairly small set.

I agree with happinesstan though, I tend to like the relatively weird, modest feel some British TV shows have, but it's definitely noticeable and given it's theme Black Mirror could benefit a lot from better sets, effect and acting across the board. Not that I thought the original was in any way horrible in those areas like.

Artistic productions never suffer from a low budget, they suffer from a lack of creativity. Black Mirror being a fine example. When made in the UK with a relatively small budget, every element of design successfully emphasized the quirkiness of the show, elevating it to classic TV status. The only thing the US big budget version emphasized was it's big budget, reducing it to no more than average.

Dr Who had kids hiding behind the sofa just by being creative with a few kitchen utensils.

If you're gripped then I don't see why the budget should matter. The people in control of that budget are clearly spending it well.

Just watched the pilot for US Shameless, looks pretty good, does anyone know if it's worth carrying on with.

I watched the whole 1st series ages ago. it was identical to the original, but with Americans. I always imagined the chatsworth estate would have been more like a trailer park in the US.

If you've seen the original then I would say there isn't much point in watching the US version.

But if you've got time to waste then it's an enjoyable enough way to waste it.

I never went past the 1st series of the US version. Didn't realise they had veered from the original later on. Weird  that they should start it that way.

That's often the case with established TV shows that the latest season won't be on Netflix for a while. I imagine they have different distribution deals for the latest season which must include exclusivity to the broadcaster. BBC for the Killing.

The final one was strange for sure - normally you have a pretty good idea where they're headed with this kind of series but that came totally out of the blue (for me at least, I may have missed clues in the earlier episodes!)

Don't think it detracted too much from the overall quality though.

Post by: BlufPurdi on Thursday 2 February 2017, 06:03:37 pm
Thought it was really good. :lol:

In saying that, I can't work out if it is actually really good.  Either way, they rushed a second season which will be released within the year due to the reception of it, so can't be doing that badly.  They've got Zoe Boyle, from Sons of Anarchy's Irish season 3 fame (Trinity for those in the know) which was probably the worst acting I've ever seen.  And she's doing the same again, with a hideously executed scottish accent to go along with her hideous Belfast accent. 

Along with another million c***s that haven't even sorted out a Wiki for themselves.  In saying that Alun Armstrong (Lord Benton) is great and a cut above.  His real life story worth reading, Armstrong's that is.  Can't work out if Captain Chesterfield is a stroke of genius or terrible acting.  He's like one of the obnoxious c***s you see following England during the WC/Euros. 

It was done by Discovery though, so make of that what you will.  And 6 episodes probably didn't help.

Nah, it's good if nowt else.  It's certainly not terrible, for my opinion.

25 minutes, and we learned that a man got hit with a baseball, some idiot went to sleep under his truck on the beach, and a tennis player died cos of a faulty pool heater.

:lol: Yes; I retract that post tbh. I watched one episode of it and was like "huh, yeah, this is okay," - and then made that post. It's clearly pants, though. Then again, I do like stuff that doesn't know how earnest/comical it's actually being.

Forensic Files is unbeatable in terms of jelly-bean TV. You can have a bit of a giggle at it without feeling guilty ("um-uh, it appeared that the victim had deefinitely consumed puhtayters the naaht before,") but they're always intriguing and often invoke an emotional reaction too. Really good show.

I've been watching Space's Wildest Weather. I don't recognise any of the sciencey guys (though I think Michio Kaku has appeared once or twice), but it's another decent 20-minute pre-bedtime watch. Basically describes what Jupiter's Red Spot (for eg) would be like if it were on Earth. But always, f***ing always, you've got some sarcy scientist who thinks he's hilarious when he says "eee, you'd need something stronger than an umbrella that day, hur hur hur." Every f***ing episode, something to that effect. :lol: "Acid rain from Venus, obliterating the Eiffel Tower? Har har, factor 50 sunblock needed for sure." :anguish:

What happens if you suspect your judicial system of being unjust?

That’s the question many Israelis faced in Netflix‘s “Shadow of Truth,” a four-part documentary series about the murder of a 13-year-old girl, Tair Rada, in Golan Heights during the daytime at her high school in 2006. Although a suspect was questioned, confessed and was eventually found guilty, his conviction has been the subject of wide controversy in the country.

It's my favourite Netflix show right now. Can't wait for the second season.

Speaking of Netflix I watched the Fear of 13 the other day, WOW! A must watch!

Thanks for mentioning this HTT :thup: Sat down to watch it tonight and thought it was brilliant. The bloke is a fantastic storyteller and it's a hell of a story. Thankfully I knew nothing about the case either which made all the more gripping.
Just watched this. What a story and what a good talker that man is. Like you, I had no idea what was coming which made it all the more intriguing.

On first glance I saw the full stop and comma as the other way round :laugh:

One thing that concerned me, if he did it, all that blood, where did it go? Don't get me wrong I think he went there after the murders hence his foot print, but I don't think he killed them. If he did, there would be lots of blood in his SUV and home. Also, Goldman put up a fight and the only injury to OJ was a finger cut, no bruises or anything. Goldman was a black belt in Karate. Also there was other finger prints and blood there not belonging to OJ, but none was tested. i honestly don't think he did it...

He clearly did it. Most obvious case in the history of murders. He just got off because he did it at the perfect time for a perfect storm against the LAPD - and because the officer finding the most incriminating evidence being a massive perjurying racist.

He was found responsible for the murders in the civil trial, after all. Just listen to the 911 calls from Nicole when he's beating the s*** out of her, man. He's guilty as sin.

I'm only up to Episode 7 but it's f***ing phenomenal television and I find the whole thing fascinating. In absolutely no doubt that he did it, personally; but I'm talking about the OJ Simpson character on this TV show. Quite how accurate a representation it is of the real OJ, I'm unsure. But I think it's pretty clear the TV makers here had their minds made up...

In the civil trial it was a 51% thing and obviously the bloody glove, bronco etc. wasn't anywhere near as contested and therefore it went against him. IMO I think he knows whokilled them and may have actually attended the crime scene, but he himself did not physically kill them. He had no bruising and all of that blood, if he jumped straight back into the bronco after it there would be far more blood.

I genuinely dnt think he did it. The evidence doesn't suggest he did, in fact it suggests a police frame up which was along with the racial angle what the defence went with at trial and they were successful.

Beating up his wife doesn't make him a murderer btw. Going by gah logic the LAPD cop planted the evidence because he was a massive racist...

She was heavily involved with dodgy characters, coke dealers and she was sexually promiscuous.

For OJ to have killed them especially in that manner would have been totally out of character.

His demise thereafter is a sad reflection on him trying to attain his celebrity, his good stock, and he f***ed up badly. No way should he have gotten the sentence he did that he is now serving though. That was the powers that be getting back at him.

Anyway it's such a tragic story all-round, guilty or not.

:lol:  The fact that HTT thinks OJ is innocent make me even more certain that Steven Avery is guilty.

Then you are an idiot. I would bet my savings SA is innocent btw, OJ it's just a hunch of mine.

The only real evidence that tied OJ to the murders was the blood, blood that contained EDTA for a start which renders it untrustworthy. Then there is the fact that his own blood was transported back to the crime scene by a cop and that the chain of evidence was broken several times. That and a vial of his blood was missing some blood too. Again the chain of evidence broken. The crime scenes were contaminated also.

The blood was planted IMO and so was the glove which contained blood that was wet some 7 hours after discovery. Experts agreed the blood would have dried up in that time. It was planted by the racist cop.

If he did kill them, where was the evidence of a struggle from the deceased against the killer? OJ had one small cut to his finger which experts have said could have been a cut from broken glass or even a paper cut.

Ron Goldman was of similar height and a black belt in Karate, he put up one hell of a fight against someone armed with a large blade, yet OJ had no signs of being in an altercation at all.

And all that blood, if he killed them and then jumped into his vehicle, there would have been much more blood.

I think Simpson is a narcissit and he looked guilty and all his attempts shout out as someone trying too hard to prove their innocence. But did he kill them? The evidence says no, a jury says no and everything I've watched and read since says no either. Although he clearly knows more and maybe even visited the crime scene. Perhaps he wanted Goldman beaten up... who knows. I highly doubt based on evidence he himself physically killed those two people though.

The jury members also have said in later times that they voted to exonerate him as a direct payback for the Rodney King beaters walking.

He has previous for almost killing her with how badly he's beaten her. He has previous in displaying a private character vs a public character.

Everybody naturally has EDTA in their blood and it was only used as a defense to try their f*** the police angle.

There were a lot of blood in the Bronco and at Rockingham, and they never found the murder weapon or clothes (other than the gloves. The blood taken from OJ would not be near enough to be the same amount as what was found.

The timeline you're suggesting for a frame job is nonsensical. It is nigh impossible and would require prior knowledge of the murders for over fifteen cops in different departments all working together because they did not like OJ - when in fact the police were among OJs best friends and why he got special treatment troughout.

I don't know why this need arguing. Even some of his defense lawyers have come out and said he did it and expressed this case was a stain on their conscience.

Misleading though. Plenty of people who remember it will watch it because it's a big event they watched unfold. A lot of younger people (my age and younger) will watch it because of the rise of the leftist culture where they perceive everyone and every organisation (including the criminal prosecution services) as being riddled with corruption and will see this as an example of that.

I don't think it's something that is still routinely brought up in conversation, but it is something people will watch largely down to those two reasons.

I don't know why this need arguing. Even some of his defense lawyers have come out and said he did it and expressed this case was a stain on their conscience.

His race obviously helped him get acquitted agreed, but a jury still found him innocent despite the prosecution's slam dunk 'evidence.'

He didn't have previous for almost killing her either, he had previous for hitting her, but not almost killing her. Huge difference.

EDTA levels were too high and the drops of blood at his home and in his car were minute. For such a bloody crime scene there was a distinct lack of blood in that respect.

Again, there was no physical evidence on OJ's person that he had been in a bloody struggle with two people, one a 6ft plus black belt in karate and another a highly strung, fiercely independent women. That is what stood out to me. That and missing blood from his vial, the so-called bloody glove which shouldn't have been soaking wet by the time it was found, and the poor chain of evidence and contamination of not only the crime scene but OJ's home and car.

It wouldn't have required 15 cops to be in on it either, it only takes one cop to plant the blood and that is what tied OJ to the case.

Just like the Steven Avery case, they homed in on him and went all out to get him.

If OJ was poor, given his race, he'd be on death row now or dead. That's scary.

As for why this needs arguing, its a discussion on the case which although decades old, has now resurfaced thanks to the show and I personally find it interesting and worth debating as its not a case of oh he did it or oh he didn't.

They were not. And it is not weird at all that there were not too much blood at Rockingham even if the actual crime scene was bloody.

Goldman and Brown did not fight back against the killer. Evidence from the crime scene and the bodies back it up. The bloody glove could easily still be wet at the time, as proven by the forensic experts during the actual case.

“Yes,” she says simply. Then says that she was one of them."


I'm in no doubt that was a factor (its so obvious), but I personally think they also genuinely thought he was not guilty also based on reasonable doubt and that is the way cases should always be judged. Even if he did it, there was enough reasonable doubt that he didn't and therefore one has to reach a not guilty verdict in such cases.

Quote
He had previous for almost beating her to death, and was put under arrest - but escaped saying he was gonna change his clothes, then called his police friends to get him off.

To almost beat someone to death is a severe beating, she never suffered such a beating during their marriage/relationship. He beat her up of course, but there is a big difference again between almost killing someone and beating them up.

Quote
They were not. And it is not weird at all that there were not too much blood at Rockingham even if the actual crime scene was bloody.

The blood from OJ at Rockingham was consistent with small bleeding while the blood from Nicole and Ron and could have also been planted as it wasn't consistent with how blood would naturally drip. If he has just committed a horrific bloody murder there would be far more blood in his home and in his car as well.

Quote
Goldman and Brown did not fight back against the killer. Evidence from the crime scene and the bodies back it up. The bloody glove could easily still be wet at the time, as proven by the forensic experts during the actual case.

So two people simply allowed their attacker just to kill them without putting up a fight whatsoever? Nicole had blood and other DNA underneath her fingernails that didn't match OJ and Ron had bruises on his knuckles suggesting he at least punched his attacker. No bruises on OJ and only a small cut which is not consistent with anything relating to how they were killed. The only way they wouldn't have put up a fight is if the killer came from behind, slit their throats and then stabbed them repeatedly. They were confronted and the throat slit came after the stabbings. Their bodies lay in positions suggesting they were struggling with their attacker as did the actual blood spatter around their bodies. 

I'm not buying that two people would not put up a fight while being attacked. Ron was a black belt in Karate for f*** sake.

Quote

The glove was also not planted, over fifteen policemen arrived before Fuhrman and all reported that there was only one glove at the crime scene - again, prior to Fuhrman even arriving.

You can't say the blood wasn't planted when it contained EDTA beyond what is already in blood and that the drops and spatter were not consistent with blood dripping naturally. There was no blood around the glove, but there were drops in the drive which suddenly stopped? Did OJ find a plaster to stop himself from bleeding?

Back to the glove, if he committed these murders and was covered in blood and got changed, ditched the knife etc. why would he then allow a glove to drop somewhere obscure to the side of the garage? He would have surely ditched that too and why would he have went to the side of the garage anyway, it didn't lead anywhere? It just doesn't make sense. That glove was planted. The blood inside and on the outside of it would have dried up or clotted in the time it took to be discovered.


Quote
If OJ was poor he'd probably be on death row, yes. And justice would have prevailed.

That's if he really was guilty which you obviously think he was. Me, I'm very insure. Although I think he may have been involved somehow. I do not believe he himself physically killed those two people.

Anyway the whole Steven Avery case make me not take things for granted when it comes to law and justice in the States and the OJ case is no different. It was one f***ed up case from start to finish. In the UK a lot of the so-called evidence would not have been admitted into court due to contamination and the chain of evidence being broken, especially regarding his blood vial which instead of being booked into evidence after it was drawn, was then taken back to OJ's home. For what purpose? Planting surely!

Agreed.

Its kind of unsettling to know that most public defenders are so exhausted (work-load) and underfunded that they literally often have no real chance of getting their client off. I'm sure I read a figure that shows in the US a high percentage try to strike plea deals or compromise. Likewise most people simply cannot afford a good lawyer and are therefore also hamstrung twice kind of. Scary stuff.

I think in the OJ case the prosecution f***ed up badly and many a time which only served to help the defence. As much as the defence got it right, the prosecution got it wrong.

Steven Avery had good lawyers, very good lawyers, but he had no chance of winning his case even if he really was innocent (which I think he 100% is). The fact his then lawyers did as good as a job as they did speaks volumes even though they themselves f***ed up once or twice. I'm pretty certain if he gets a retrial or even gets acquitted, ineffective council will be one of the factors.

The deck was stacked against them from the start, however. First with Ken Kratz' press conferences which removed his innocent until proven guilty presumption and then with the Denny rule which meant his defence couldn't bring others who may have committed the 'murder' into the equation. The poor bloke had nothing other than that the cops framed him, which in a small town was considered absurd. His actual exoneration was considered juts a shitty thing to have happened, no wrong doing by the powers that be etc. and even then many though he still did it despite DNA evidence proving otherwise.

OJ's case coming pretty soon on the back of the Rodney King thing helped his cause and Johnnie Cochran used the race card magnificently despite his client, although black, was anything but in all reality. I genuinely think OJ resented being classed as a black guy or worse for him African American.

He was gentile royalty.

To be fair, it should never be about race, anything at all, and hopefully in the future we can all look beyond race. Simpson when asked if he was an African American said hell no, I'm OJ Simpson.

Its a fascinating case. I actually watched the documentary OJ Made in America first which got me into the docu series and the case. That is one brilliant documentary btw. A must watch.

We'll not agree, so I'll just leave it there since I can't do more than appeal to your common sense. Some of the arguments (re: blood/gloves) is borderline as insane as some of the worst 9/11 conspiracies :lol:

On another note, I found it so funny that the first thing OJ does after eight months of making the LAPD his scapegoat is throwing a party where the LAPD are security and his best LAPD mates are his guests :lol:

I've been watching a few shows in that kind of style lately. Lovesick I think is a really good one on Netflix. British with some really good humor in it throughout and strong characters. Master of None and Easy are good as well, though Easy is more one-off stories that are intertwined, which admittedly makes it difficult to get invested in the characters like you can with Love. One that's also similar but isn't on Netflix right now is You're The Worst. Might be worth checking out if you haven't already.

EDIT - I'm on about the Fear of 13, not the Seven Five.  :buck2:

Watched it a few days ago and did a bit of research on it to see what the guy was up to now.

Turns out he's moved over here, married and had three daughters. The youngest of which was still only a baby when she suddenly died in January this year. Absolutely shocked me. This poor, poor f***ing bloke. As if life hadn't thrown enough at him already. :(

Weirdly, he's been on the True Geordie podcast recently.

I have both Netflix and Prime. Netflix is clearly the winner, you have all the greats like Better call Saul, House of cards, Stranger things, plus loads more and other shows and movies. Prime you pretty much have The grand tour and thats it. The man in the high castle is nowhere near as good as people make it out to be, and not a touch on what Netflix put out. A lot more of their stuff is only passable and not things that you must watch. To make things worse for Prime you'll often search for a movie or TV show and it will be available, but not on prime and will ask for a rental or purchase fee.

As someone who is around the age of the characters on the show, I know what goes on and what happens and the show just makes you think the miniscule things you do can have a gargantuan effect on people, some may know that already but the show highlights stuff brilliantly.

That's what I was thinking but didn't know how to put in words.  Are they going to end out trying to make it a social platform?  I know there's addons/extensions like NetParty or whatever that allows you to talk to be people as you both watch something.  Perhaps they're gearing towards that.  Perhaps not. 

Either way, the whole thumps up/down stuff is really really just f***ing boring as f***.  It's ridiculous to even get annoyed by it, but it's just the way everything has to be a black or white.  You hate it, or you love it.

Much prefer the thumbs up/down system. I only rated 1 or 5 stars before anyway. Either I liked it or not, f*** trying to do a scale rating system in a place with such a variety of genres as well as content for different mediums. I'd always rate a 5 star TV Show higher than a 5 star movie simply because TV is superior when it comes to telling a story. Giving them ratings less than 5 or more than 1 would f*** up the suggestions. Either I liked it or I didn't. Simple.

They'd have to give me a rating system with a score ranging from 1 to 100, as well as separate them by genre and medium for me to be able to rate things properly. Thumbs up and down is just easier.

I do know what you mean.  Most stuff I like, even though I don't think it's outstanding, I'll give a 5, but there's plenty of s*** I can't bring myself to do that with but still enjoy.  It's the more the way every platform is resorting to these ways of evaluating, well, everything and anything.  Some stuff it works, it's simple, it's a photo, it doesn't need a degree of how much you liked it etc, but I'd often go on rating runs on Netflix.  There was something cathartic about it, I even do it on IMDB with an account stretching back nearly a good 15 years.  :blush:

Rating out of five is horrible, though. The scale needs to be vastly larger to properly represent what I think of the movies/shows. Also need to be genre based as some genres as a 100/100 on a horror scale isn't as good as a 100/100 on a drama scale as it's much harder to make a good drama than a horror.

Out of 10 at least, though :lol: With only 5 choices it's nigh possible to rate, especially the ones arounnd 3 as they're not bad enough for 2 and not good enough for 4, yet the rane of movies within that area is so vast it's hard to group some toether because they're not equal even if they're not a 2 or 4.

Elisabeth Moss has a NAME. 

:lol: I'd never seen her before this. I thought she was some super talented unknown actress. She's nuts.

You never watched Mad Men? Kind of seems like it's right up your alley.

Only caught the first episode of Handmaid's Tale, really promising adaptation though

Just had to drop by and mention 13 Reasons Why. f***ing hell, what a great programme :clap:
:thup: Already mentioned this in the other thread. So tragic and heartbreaking but it has funny parts as well. Brilliant show.

As someone who is around the age of the characters on the show, I know what goes on and what happens and the show just makes you think the miniscule things you do can have a gargantuan effect on people, some may know that already but the show highlights stuff brilliantly. Just thinking about it makes me depressed. :lol:

But I strongly​ recommend it to anyone who's not seen it yet.

2 episodes into this and it seems pretty good so far despite not really buying a couple of the characters - although this seems more of a personal issue I have with American high school type stuff. I tried and gave up watching the 12 Monkeys series and we'd just finished The Lizzie Borden Chronicles so it's nice to be watching something that actually seems well made and interesting.

I'm at the exact same place as you in the show and couldn't disagree more with your whole post. :lol:

I'd say in all fairness, that the first 2 seasons were alright TV.  Think the third has been terrible, the aussie actress/model is beyond awful and is cringeworthy everytime she appears on screen.  It misses Pornstache badly.  Couldn't careless about any character in it now, short of Red and Caputo.  The story with the new owners has weight, but it's a story as old as the hills and they'll do well to come out with anything remotely original from it.  So far they've gone for the predictable but acceptable reality of hiring and training practices, but the Pennsatucky line is intriguing (if distressing).

Piper's transformation and lack of 'real life' (as in not in prison) anchor makes a mockery of much of what was done well in the first seasons. 

So overall, I hate it, but can enjoy it, and definitely can't accept season 3 being said to be good.  Not enjoying it much at all.

Maybe it's the fact that our president has efficiently attacked free press to the point many people won't believe a word said by major publications, but I thought the Hulk Hogan doc was important and timely right now. They showed a good amount of Gawker's worst moments plus had people critical of them. Honestly I'll never understand why Gawker chose this hill to die on, but what they did when publishing was important, and they had a rightful place in the media landscape. Whatever your thoughts on them, billionaires shouldn't be able to shut down free press by bankrolling lawsuits they have nothing to do with.

Yeah it's a s*** article tbh, posted it before reading it [emoji38] There is a point there that everything they used to touch turned to gold when making original content, however of course the more stuff they make the more duds will appear.

I moved into video advertising 3 months ago and you learn some interesting things about companies like Netflix, e.g. their budget for original content in 2017 was $6bn which dwarves that of TV networks these days (HBO budget for example is around 2.5bn), they still haven't posted a profit in a financial year despite being valued at $60bn, and the plan is for them to start offering a Spotify-style "free but with advertising" service pretty soon.

New Matt Groening show coming to Netflix next year.

Quote
Netflix has ordered twenty episode of Matt Groening’s new adult animated comedy/fantasy series Disenchantment. Groening is of course the creator of such beloved animated series as The Simpsons and Futurama. The plan is for the streaming service to debut ten episodes at a time starting in 2018.

DisenchantmentThe series is set in a crumbling medieval kingdom called Dreamland, where we follow the misadventures of a hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. She and her traveling mates will come across ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses and lots of idiot humans.

Groening says of the new series:

Ultimately, Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.
The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (Bean), Nat Faxon (Elfo), and Eric Andre (Luci), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama) and is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.

Then I went to watch the second series, and the first episode was one of the worst episodes of television I've ever seen. Seemed like they'd decided that moving the plot to Australia meant turning it into an episode of Neighbours. Genuinely can't believe it has the same director and writer.

Doesn't really affect UK viewers (unless your watching through a VPN) as over here Netflix don't have much (if any) Disney content.

This is going to be a big problem in future though, every network is going to bring out their own streaming service which you must subscribe too. It's going to be like the music industry before iTunes. Apple has already identified this problem and are trying to come to an arrangement to put in place a 1 stop streaming service, however the networks are trying to milk the cow, little do they know that putting a gun to a cows head and telling to produce milk isn't how you go about doing it.

Been watching the second season of Last Chance U.

A sports documentary about a junior college American Football team that manages to win state championships despite a tiny local population. The reason why is because they recruit extremely talented players who have been kicked out of other schools because of criminal activity, bad behavior and other misdemeanors.

Atypical.

Really am enjoying it actually. Can't say I really know anything about autism, though. A few reviews seem to suggest it's not the most perfect representation of it.

I whizzed through half the series the other day, like. Really enjoyed it too, then read the criticisms about how they portray autism and felt bad about laughing about some of the stuff. :okay:

I quite enjoyed Sense8, some interesting concepts, of course being the Wachowski's they often go a bit overboard especially with the whole Trans/Pride thing in the pilot. I suppose I was really taken by the fact that it was a show which was spread around the globe instead of the usual US/UK setttings.

I know it doesn't necessarily work like that, but just barmy you haven't got access to it yet.  I thought it would be as a sort of North American thing.  I'd just acquire it by other means, if you're eager to see it that is.  Netflix is pretty bad with some stuff, especially if they're not involved in the programme.

It's not.  The writers have no idea why the second season isn't up yet.  They initially said it would come to Netflix a month after airing, we're nearly 7.  It's also out on f***ing DVD, I think.

Personally, I think if you show the first season to something, you've an obligation to follow it up in reasonable time.  They've done the same with The Last Kingdom and The Fall.  Both of which they shove their Netflix stamp on.

Ludicrous comparison.
How is it? Most of it’s day to day programmes are only popular with older generations. It has even kicked BBC 3 which was aimed at millennials online. It has sold the re-run rights to it’s popular backlog of shows to UK TV, so can’t even offer a streaming service of their own with a full variety of all it’s programmes. Most of it’s news these days is being bought by Reuters instead of the BBC sending out their own investigation teams.

If you love Eastenders, Casualty, and Strictly come dancing then £12.25 seems like a bargain, unfortunately though that’s all the BBC are offering. You get 4 episodes of Sherlock once every 2 years (which soon goes onto Netflix) and 12 episodes of Dr Who a year (though there was no season last year) which are popular with families, aside from that there are no real programmes on the BBC that offer any kind of entertainment value for younger people or families to enjoy. Even MOTD is heavily geared towards armchair glory hunters than real football fans.

Mindhunter, a new series with big names like Charlize Theron and David Fincher among its producers, puts a surprisingly compelling spin on the very basic idea of two cops partnering up to solve crimes. We don’t see gruesome acts of violence — outside of the occasional crime-scene photo — and many of the criminals the cops talk to are already in prison. But there’s a creeping, chilly horror at its center, a growing sense that something is irreparably broken in the world, and nobody’s going to put it back together.

The series is built almost entirely around conversation, around trying to understand what’s going on in somebody else’s head by talking to them and getting under their skin. Its big set pieces aren’t gruesome murders, but scenes where killers describe their heinous acts in the dispassionate tones we might reserve for a grocery list.

Mindhunter is not, by any means, a perfect show, nor does it succeed at everything it sets out to accomplish. But its intense focus on the inner workings of the human brain makes for a surprisingly fascinating watch that examines the roots of human darkness without seeming to revel in it.

:lol: what’s wrong with Charlize Theron?


4 episodes in now. The guy playing Kemper, man.

Kemper the real MVP.

Agreed. don't know if he sounds like him but incredible how much he looks like him. That moment where he says "there's more of us out there you know" was f***ing chilling. I also like the little flashes to Kansas and the hints of a beginning there. Think it's pretty clearly BTK. Cool show, find the main guy a little absurd at times with his knowing looks but Tench is quality.

Only managed about half an hour of Mindhunter because it had already packed in so many clichés, convenient coincidences, and stereotypical characters that it didn't immerse me. It didn't feel like something by David Fincher. I'll give it another chance when I'm more in the mood.

Nothing's wrong with her.  Nothing at all.  I'd want her acting in it, mind.  It's got Anna Torv from FRINGE fame, she was terrible.  She any good in this?
I always thought she was great in Fridge tbh. That said I thought the show was exceptional, even if the last season was a bit of a miss.

Kinda like it’s based on a true story? It sounds weird, but I always find things that are rooted in truth the hardest to suspend disbelief for because reality is so incredibly random. When I watched The People vs. OJ Simpson I was literally shouting at the TV in disbelief, yet the dialogue/actions I had most issues with were recreated verbatim with no creative license taken :lol:

Loved both Mindhunter after viewing it all though. If only for the serial killer interviews. That said, I am frustrated and annoyed by them creating «fake» characters for Douglas (Ford) and Ressler (Tench), and obviously most scenes involving their personal lives are bullshit. I am biased by loving Douglas and his work, though :lol:

I'm not saying those things didn't happen, or those people don't exist. But happening in that way - Do a lecture about hostage negotiations, see poignant lecture about mental illness, talk in bar with that lecturer, then just happen to have a stereotypical sociology student with poignant things to say about crime and mental illness approach you at the bar? All of that in one go over the course of like an hour. Whether it's true or not doesn't really matter in terms of my enjoyment, but I'd be flabbergasted if that's how events unfolded.  The whole based on a true story means about as much as inspired by real events tbh. Even documentaries can't be taken at face value and wikipedia searches after programmes almost always end up being nothing like the way it was depicted.

The People vs OJ Simpson wasn't at all verbatim, like. :lol: As an example, watch Cuba Gooding Jr doing his 'daddy when are you coming home?' speech and then watch the actual speech by O.J, they're worlds apart.

Think in part it lacked "the chase". They weren't actively looking for someone major, other than on a couple of the consultations that they did, and those people weren't that hard to determine. The references to BTK I have to assume will be big in season 2 as that escalates.

I think the lead character is as latent a serial killer as you'll ever see and there's someone close to him that gets discussed early that we still haven't met  :lol:

Oof, that bugger. Makes sense, according to wiki, he was one of his first major cases/consultations and he helped trap him. The guy that I think most think is clearly referred to doesn't merit a mention in the wiki, but the short clips of happenings in Kansas were surely him? I mean the ending could hardly have been anyone else?

'Stranger' is a good Korean drama worth watching. It takes a bit of sticking with to get used to the jarring and slightly cheesy direction style K-dramas use but it develops very well over the course of the series. Starts as a murder mystery but ends up being much broader in scope involving corruption in Korean society.

The Wire, by a mile and without hesitation. Still watch Narcos though.
The Wire will be in the top 5 shows ever, no matter who you ask. Narcos is an easier watch, but just can't reach that level.

Thanks for the recommendation for The Wire, its a bit of a slow burner at first but I've just finished ep10 of season 1 and I'm totally hooked

I'll probably give it another bash in future like, but I just couldn't be doing with it for now.

Aye. Still don't like the character, last episode was rewarding.

His relationship is a bit clichéd but I wonder if that isn't on purpose. His life is so clichéd and ordinary, but every now and then it enters that dark side of fantasy. I'm pretty sure that will f*** with him at some point.

Nah, I was interested after the first few episodes, but thought it was a bit hammy. Gave it a few more episodes and was in too deep to stop, the mystery had to be solved. Then it started with the trippy russian babushka stuff and I was less than convinced, then the dance just absolutely ruined it. there's no way you can see that dance and not look back on the whole series as an absolute pile.

The show is unoriginal and everything it "steals" from other shows it somehow manages to do worse. Also suffering from being highly predictable. It's average, at best, and that is mainly because of Bateman's capable acting.

Just started watching the Norwegian show Occupied. I'm really liking the idea and the acting is pretty good as well. It's about a fictional near future where Norwegian green party decides to stop producing oil and gas which leads to an energy crisis. EU gives Russians the mandate to take control of the production facilities and off we go...

Strictly speaking, on a ten point scale, there is no 'average' midpoint. 5.5 is bang in the middle so 5 would be below average.

ToonDave & KI

I agree about the rating system, I hate numbered ratings in any media though as, even if it was perfect (ie 5 - or 5.5 - average) it’s still at the mercy of the reviewer giving something a 5 one day when he would have given it a 6 the next, it can never be accurate. When looking at aggregate though I think the user reviews in comparrison are pretty telling, with critics being a lot harsher on the ‘unoriginality’ of the show but your average viewer not giving a f***.

Ozark was a cracking little binge, like. Not a classic by any means, just a solid little story, well acted and well produced.

Maybe with a week between episodes it wouldn't have held my attention, and I can't say my appetite is whetted for the second series, but I got what I wanted out of it so it gets a thumbs up.

I look forward to more Peter Mullin in it, to be fair.  Can't say any of the others make me feel like I can't wait for season 2 mind.  Bateman's quality obviously, but let's be fair he's essentially the same character in absolutely everything these days.

Stranger Things is definitely good, but it sometimes feels like it was written by millenials who have a certain idea about the 80's. Small things like timelines of music coming out being wrong (Sunglasses at Night for example), or the metalhead heavy being a fan of Ratt, a band who was always widely regarded with disdain by those types.

But overall, it really is pretty good. It's a testament to the show that the little stuff mentioned doesn't really bother me. It still strikes nostalgia chords.
Title: Re: Netflix/Streaming Suggestions
Post by: Hanshithispantz on Monday 13 November 2017, 09:51:53 pm

I recently learned that Scott Buck had to piece together Iron Fist from nothing to a show in four months due to Marvel TV signing a deal with IMAX. Then they forced Buck to create Inhumans the TV Show in two months from nothing due to the same deal.

Whilst I respect both shows a bit more, they're still not good. And I still hate Buck for the last three seasons of Dexter. But still. Mad props for even managing to do what he did in such a short amount of time.

I'm up to episode 5 and find it half thoroughly boring and half compelling. :lol:

Bill Pullman permanently has the most irritating look on his face though.

It’s has just enough intrigue too keep you watching without a lot happening.

I think I just liked the song...

Netflix/Marvel 'The Punisher' rated 3/5 by Empire. As usual it says the story is spread very thin over 13 episodes.

Finished The Punisher. Think that was the best Marvel TV Show so far. No lulls or boring b-plots (the Lewis plot was perhaps even more engaging for me than the main plot) and a steady delivery. Could've used a better villain, but seeing how this season basically was just setting the stage for the "real" Punisher and villains such as Jigsaw makes me alright with it. Really close between it and Jessica Jones though, as Kilgrave was such a great villain - but the feeling of reality and pain in The Punisher really resonated with me, at least. Thoroughly enjoyed every second.

Look Who's Back - Adolf Hitler reawakens at the site of his former bunker 70 years later, he's mistaken for a brilliant comedian and becomes a media phenomenon. Good watch.

I might get pelters for this but The Ranch is easy viewing. I originally started watching it because I was sick of searching for ages to find something to watch and it kept coming up as a new arrival. The laughter track got on my nerves originally, but in the end it just faded into the background. It has a decent line of actors (plenty of the cast from the 70’s show are in it), and Sam Elliot's character comes out with some decent one liners.

I just finished it tonight. It's good, especially if you like Sci-Fi stuff, but there's a lot of characters thinly spread and across 3 different time periods. Not only was it hard to to keep track of them all at the beginning, but it also meant they weren't really developed enough by the end to care about what happened to them.

For me it became more like a puzzle that you wanted to see pieced together, which kept it watchable and addictive. The science/time aspect of it is very interesting and leaves you thinking at the end.

Overall worth a watch but not amazing. Also be sure to turn off the terrible dubbing and watch in German with subs.

I finally got round to giving that a go as well, watching the first series through. Personally wasn't that sold on it. I love the time period and the general premise, and the setting is really good considering they're working with a BBC budget.

However I found the plot often varied between underwhelming and nonsensical - and a lot of the dialogue is really hammy at times. Also I'm no expert on Brummie or Belfast accents but I thought a lot of them sounded really off to my ears.

I finally got round to giving that a go as well, watching the first series through. Personally wasn't that sold on it. I love the time period and the general premise, and the setting is really good considering they're working with a BBC budget.

So... a massive budget? :lol:

Is it not a bit misleading to judge them by cost per episode given there are twice as many episodes in a series of BE than PB and presumably there are some economies of scale related to making more episodes rather than less?

Even Doctor Who averages around $1.2 million per episode. A ways away from top Netflix shows these days, but still. I’d argue BBC is just kinda s*** at using their money with some exceptions.

Loads of websites say a similar figure.

Either way the cost of PB and other BBC dramas is clearly way below most of the big American shows.
Title: Re: Netflix/Streaming Suggestions
Post by: Kaizero on Wednesday 6 December 2017, 10:25:09 pm
BBC Dramas average an episodical cost of $2.1 Million. US Network shows average $3.2 Million. Wages of actors are much higher in the US, and wages are naturally included in these figures. You’ll find the episodical production costs are quite similar after wages are removed from the equation.

I mean the thing with PB is almost everything outdoors seems to be shot on one street and an industrial site, with the vast majority of background stuff filled in with CGI.

It seemed to me to have that typical whiff of an ambitious BBC drama trying to compete with American period shows, without really having the budget to quite match up (although still obviously significant). It may simply be a poorer use of resources.
Title: Re: Netflix/Streaming Suggestions
Post by: Kaizero on Wednesday 6 December 2017, 10:38:05 pm
Think the US shows might just be better at repurposing their locations / have access to more fit for purpose locations. US Westerns for instance can choose between tons of Western sets and thus can get more variation without spending too much money.

That said, the price for renting locations. Oh my god :anguish:

There'll surely be loads of costs that are there whether you're doing 6 episodes a season or 12, so doing per episode costs isn't really all that telling.

Saw this post, checked the trailer and wasn't impressed with the look of it visually/colouring. But grabbed the first 6 episodes anyways and was pleased the whole thing looked far far better than the trailer. Nice colour scheme.

It's kind of fun, the characters are easily likable and I like how it doesn't take itself seriously. I'll definitely grab the rest of the season come February.

I like it. Love the Saul Bass style titles.

I used to watch the cartoon way back, and it was hilarious. there has been a TV show based on the characters before with Patrick Warburton as the Tick. The whole thing is meant as a send up of typical super heroes which i like.
I've blasted through the 6 episodes available and am waiting for the rest.

have also started on Into the badlands, am half way through second series. really good show.

So you think it's fair that someone can start watching a series e.g. 'Dexter' and then it leaves Netflix with no visible warning when they are half way through?

NOW TV has a "Watch until" date against programmes so you know when it's due to leave.

How that's a "horrible business idea" I'll never know. It's called customer service where I come from.

Because if people are signed on for certain content, and they know that content is being removed, it's far easier to decide to opt out / not sign up than it is if you're already a member and then it's gone. You'll be miffed, but you won't opt out of the service and they'll still get your money.

Original ending was Dexter sat in the electric chair as they open the window where people can look in at the execution, and he sees everyone he's killed looking back at him and smiles - cut to black and you hear a switch being flipped, roll credits.

Instead Dexter went full on incest and became a bearded woodsman.

A LOST reboot. :lol: 

Go get f***ed.  I hope everyone shuns it, it would be absolutely deserved. 

The only thing they could do that would be remotely justified (and that's to say, please don't bother) would be to look into the Hurley & Ben era, or perhaps some spin off from some time on the island, but a total reboot stinks of him (Carlton c***) trying to cash in on the new found obsession with TV shows. 

To be honest, I always thought LOST was lucky to do as well as it did.  It was hardly peak times for TV.  It was all sort of just beginning to take off, with the exception of HBO who already had Oz, Six Feet Under, The Wire and The Sopranos to its name.

:lol: Because everyone said "They're f***ing dead" during the first ad break of the pilot. So they fudged it just enough to be like "Oh, they're dead, but not like how you said." It's Pardew speak. We lost because of the fans cheering, not because I'm f***ing s***.

Motherfucker I watched the whole thing :lol:

It was decently entertaining during my teenage years and the first few seasons were really good. But it so clearly lost the plot, no pun intended, and by the end it was a show you watched just to see how it ended. And the ending was hot garbage.

I’ve never once felt the urge to rewatch it and I’m not at all intrigued by a reboot, which is a further indictment of the state of Hollywood today (preemptive ‘settle down, Kaiz’ :lol:)

But nah I do agree with the thoughts on here about the reboot. Lost absolutely has its place in TV history, but even I can admit that it jumped the shark. It doesn't need rebooting, it needs to be learned from - as in its good bits and its mistakes.

I think that has probably happened, fwiw. I can't point out a specific drama that was obviously influenced by Lost, but as one of the first big contributors to binge culture, writers elsewhere will have surely learnt from the show in terms of storytelling that works for passionate audiences.
