    Over halfway through Sex Education now. It's really fucking good. Funny, surprisingly touching, lots of good characters. Recomnnedddedd
    Finished now, without realising I was actually watching final episode. Sad it's ended - was looking forward to another tonight! 9/10.

    Is it me or is Nightflyers a bit rubbish?
    Two episodes in and.....yes, it's wank so far.

    It spent no time setting up any characters or even the setting, so going event horizon straight off the bat means absolutely nothing. It's just one 'creepy' set piece after another which is really boring.

    Next on the list after Sex Education. Which is slowly starting to live up to the reviews here - first episode or two were misleading, it's got much more depth than initially shown. Good stuff

    I watched the first one of Sex Education and was kind of mixed with it. Does it ever get passed the EVERYTHING IS ABOUT SEX. SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX. EVERYONE IS TOTALLY DOING SEX. SEX SEX SEX stage?

    Doesn't really get past the SEX SEX SEX thing, as that's the central hook that everything hangs on, but what it does have is some great characters who you quickly care about. It's a character piece really, despite being dressed up as a teen high school thing, with a whole load of high school tropes. I wasn't that impressed to start with but by the end of the 2nd episode I was engaged and by the end of the 4th, pretty hooked.

    Do you get to see those magnificent boobs from the start of the first episode again?

    Velvet Buzzsaw - Boring

    Polar - Part Tarrantino, part John Wick, part Bond, part Jason Bourne. Had to watch it after reading a 1 star review. It's not that bad. Pretty bad but in a good way. It's very weird seeing "What are the scores" George Dawes as a Hollywood villain. One of the worst performances I've ever seen. Well worth a watch.

    Negative.

    Real or fake?

    I'd have to watch the scene again but from mammary they did jiggle in a realistic manner. I'm going with real.

    We watched this last night.

    I'm filing it under: yet another great reason to never visit the good old US of A.

    A few burning questions though.

    1. Who the fuck calls the FBI before they call the police?
    2. Who the fuck speaks so politely on the phone to the man that has abducted and serially raped your daughter?

    People be crazy.

    I made it four episodes in to Nightflyers before giving up.

    Life's too short. It's wank. Characters acting in totally preposterous ways and no-one remembering from one scene to the next.

    I seem to remember watching the previous film version on VHS recordings in the 80s but have mercifully blanked that from my memory banks.

    The Mrs and I loved You and both series of The Sinner. Thoroughly gripped throughout both.

    Not sure what to try next. Sex Education is getting a lot of hype on here, might go for that

    Yeah Russian Doll is pretty good. Pretty funny. She reminds me a bit of a good mate, which is disturbing on the same levels.

    Two episodes into You, and it's fine but the woman is really annoying. As is the guy, tbh. I get that it's all about her for him, but it's so fawning. I know that's the point but I dunno, not really loving it so far.

    I'm watching this with my GF. She was a Gossip Girl obsessive and this is basically Gossip Girl: Psycho Edition from what I can tell.

    It's alright. Filled with highly irritating beautiful people. Some surprisingly weird/sudden bits, which make it interesting. The storyline veers all over the place as it goes on (a trip to an American Charles Dickens festival is particularly bizarre), but don't think too much about it all and it's alright.

    @Tomo Yeah I agree with this. There was enough in it to keep us captivated and wanting to watch more though.

    One of my biggest gripes with it was that the bloke was continuously "lucky". He's standing outside her house, with massive windows and no curtains and she NEVER sees him! He's always in the same bars and she never sees him. It was a bit convenient at times!

    @Lankysi

    Yeah totally agree - he murders various people, the authorities barely bat an eyelid and everyone concerned instantly gets through the grieving process.

    I found the bits with him wanking behind a plant pot in the street pretty hilarious. It's so weird at times, for what almost feels like young adult fiction.

    Isn't Gossip girl, Gossip girl: Psycho Edition?

    Geez
    Honestly, I cant remember seeing anything so infuriating. I was wishing I could reach into the TV and slap the stupid out of the mother.

    But, yeah, it was a perfect storm. A family of prideful, church going idiots who had absolutely no concept of what a pedo is must have been the easiest marks. Jesus... its just mind blowing.

    @nickthegun she still sounded a bit in love with him when she was reminiscing about their affair

    The pedo couldn't have found a more perfect family for his horrible plot
  • Deleted user 5 February 2019 12:20:26
    Can't believe the dad wanked him off, or that they put the daughter on a plane to see the nonce, or that they didn't try to put him away when the FEDS had him, or that they let the daughter sleep with him as part of his nonce therapy, or that the mom banged him.

    Annoyed me that he only served 1 year and took the cowards way out.

    Absolute scum
