RE: Netflix Thread
Bad with flu so had a marathon Western session on Netflix. Watched 'For A Few Dollars More', then 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'.

Both films are incredible of course. But 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' would go into my 'Desert Island Movies' collection without hesitation. I'd forgotten how much this is an American Civil War movie, as much as a Western! Fun fact; Lee Van Cleef is missing the last joint on his right-hand middle finger and you can see this clearly in both movies. He lost it making a playhouse for his daughter! Not so 'Bad' now, is he! Great man, I wish we still had actors like him around.

Afterwards, I watched a new Netflix documentary about the reconstruction of the incredible and iconic cemetery featured in the famous tri-duel ending; 'Sad Hill Unearthed'. This massive cemetery was created from scratch for the movie (by the Spanish Army) and later fell into disrepair (wooden crosses used by the locals to repair their roof etc).

A gang of volunteers sponsored a grave and got it put back to its former glory. With the help of Metallica who've used the theme music as their Intro for 30 years. James Hetfield from the band described how the music still gives him goosebumps, even after all this time. I'm exactly the same.

To round off my Western-a-thon, I watched;

'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' by the Coen Bros.

I'm not completely won over by the Coens, but I absolutely loved this. Partly because I love that genre; anthology movies! It reminded me of a favourite from my youth; Creepshow! Each short story begins with an illustration and passage of text from an old book.

The stories varied in quality but I enjoyed them all immensely and look forward to watching again someday when I've re-forgotten the details. They all feature a host of well-known actors and actresses who all look like they're having a great time.

So that's 4 Netflix shows. Oh, I watched 'Split' as well. Enjoyed it very much (that's 5 Netflix shows), makes me look forward to Glass.

I normally don't like female comedians.

However Enissa Amani is decently funny (comedians of the world, plus her own special) and looks fantastic for her age.

I thought so, too. But it turns out to be quite ok, it's nearly literally only the first 36 minutes. Not too much pc crap afterwards.

Would you recommend I continue?

Bitches are going crazy over this Japanese woman, Marie Kondo, who teaches them how to clean their houses and fold clothes.

[Image: 2212.jpg?width=300&quality=85&am...d7870bfa8f]

She bases her methods on the concept of "sparking joy."
I watched a couple of her shows, and although I'm not sure she inspired the sparking of any joy, she definitely sparked a renewed and reinvigorated desire to impale tiny Asian women on the end of my penis.

I'm having trouble finding the good in this show. Cernovich described it as "Black Mirror meets Gossip Girl."

All I see is an introspective chode who pedestalizes the girl of his interest. Like a good nu-male he believes evil men are out to get her. She needs saving. Only he can help her. She's not responsible for any of her shitty choices in life. The show is just filled with progressive talking points, which makes it unbearable. Not to mention he's a full-blown stalker who will jerk-off in the bushes while being a Peeping Tom. In my opinion, the main character is a flop (his Cosmopolitan dating advice is laughable) and his love interest is the kind of woman we should be ignoring or ghosting after the first bang.

Quick aside: Devon Stack's movie reviews are excellent. Here's two examples worth watching:

- https://blackpilled.com/2018/12/inside-the-bird-box/ (Netflix)

I finished watching the show Ozark yesterday and I think it deserves a review of sorts. I originally posted a few points in this thread when I started watching, which I'll add here.

SPOILERS, obviously.

The show has been compared to, and follows more or less the same formula of, Breaking Bad: normal guy/family slowly spiral into a world of crime. There are two main differences to the formula: one is that the whole family gets involved instead of only the father – there is a flashback episode where we see that husband and wife get into it together, the show is set ten years later and the kids (teenage girl, pre-teen boy) are now aware of the criminal activities, and the whole show is predicated on the 'family' aspect. The other main difference is there is no particular reason for them to be involved in the criminal world, other than money itself. Whereas in Breaking Bad the main character finds he has cancer while having a pregnant wife, handicapped kid, no savings and no medical insurance to cover the treatment – therefore giving him many reasons to opt for a criminal enterprise. Besides this, there is a frustration to the character as he is an under-appreciated and under-paid genius that finally gets to be top dog, or at least try. So it's a 'will to power' story as well.

Ozark has none of this. The main character (Marty, played by Jason Bateman) is a numbers guy, mildly autistic and largely emotionless, that launders money for a Mexican drug cartel. His wife is cheating on him, his partner is an informant to the FBI that gets killed by the cartel, and he is more or less forced to move to the Ozarks, a redneck, middle-of-nowhere, lake-town to launder money for the cartel, as Chicago was just 'too hot' at the moment with FBI – this is the agreement he makes so that both of he and his family can stay alive.

This premise made no economic sense to me. The main cartel guy just trusts Marty with 50 million dollars because he is so smart and off they go to the countryside to find business to 'invest' in and launder the drug money. I'll suspend my disbelief, ok. At least I get to see nice landscapes.

I haven't watched many recent shows but it seems to be a trend with the ones I have watched (either entirely or partially): all characters (other than, maybe, the children) are morally reprehensible in all sorts of ways, and you cannot feel sympathy when bad stuff happens to them or empathize with their dilemmas; or, as is the case with the pastor, they are good-natured and well-intentioned but naive and helpless idiots. This, I believe, is to convey the idea that acting morally is a sort of mental deficiency, that 'enlightened' people are above basic ethical behavior, not because they can get away with it, but even if they don't - it's just something 'smart' and 'interesting' people do. If you are a decent person, have a wife you don't cheat on, treat others with respect, tell the truth, work hard and don't steal, etc, you are, by necessity, intellectually inferior and also boring as hell. Because if you weren't, you would cut corners and do whatever you want with no regards for others, like all the 'enlightened' people do.

There are a few interesting characters, but they are secondary and not of much importance to the story, or given much screen time.

All the main characters are pieces of shit – and not necessarily out of self-interest. Example: there is a rival family-cartel of rednecks that produces heroin and most of their actions are simply self-destructive, both for them and their business, something I interpret as inorganic plot-devices due to lazy writing. This is especially true of the women in the show (a point I will explore later). They pass these off as the rednecks having 'honor' and respecting their 'heritage' – I guess to paint these concepts as bad things, because the way they are framed is definitely bad. And, of course, they don't make any sense. In one instance, Marty gets the two cartels talking and reaching a mutually beneficial agreement. But the redneck wife shoots the main Mexican guy in the head because he used the word 'redneck'. While it was mildly insulting, you wonder how they got so far as drug kingpins if they sabotage their economic interests in this way. The truth is, they wouldn't.

Another point that doesn't add up: the redneck cartel is headed by 60 year old husband and wife, the Snells, and they are always talking of heritage and keeping the family influence in the region, and all they do is justified in this manner, yadayadayada. Yet, they have no children and it's clarified later that it is not because she was infertile. Again, lazy writing and character development.

It wouldn't be a Netflix show in the current year without some diversity. Three episodes in, the two FBI agents in charge of the investigation are revealed to be ex-boyfriends (one is black, of course; the other is, appropriately, a psychopath). They make sure to show us the white sodomite getting a blowjob and gagging a male prostitute (if they went any further in the depiction it would be full blown porn). What the fuck is wrong with these people? They have to insert sodomites into everything. The agents could have been the same exact characters without us knowing anything about their sexual proclivities. But of course they have to jam that sodomy pill down everyone's throats.

And right away on episodes four and five, they set up and deliver yet another progressive cliché.
The white sodomite is undercover in the small town and to further his investigation he pretends to befriend an ex-con redneck that is involved, if only tangentially, with the main character. He does this by offering the guy money to show him fly-fishing spots. Redneck accepts.

At one point while fishing, he mentions he dated a 'total psychopath' (he's the actual psychopath, whereas the black guy plays the fictional 'normal gay'). The redneck says 'well, I hope that she was at least hot' or something of the sort, to which the sodomite replies 'it was a he, not a she'. Redneck is taken aback, disgusted and sort of scared. 'Don't worry, I only fuck men that want to be fucked', says the noble sodomite, trying to break down social taboos among the backward savages. End of scene. Later, in the redneck's backyard, the sodomite offers him more money to show him other spots for fishing. Being the raging homophobe that he is, he declines with prejudice. His cousin, who listened to the conversation, asks him why he didn't take the money, to which the redneck replies 'he's a fucking faggot'.

Next episode, the redneck ends up seeking out the sodomite to accept his offer. I knew where this was going immediately. We would be presented with the age-old fantasy of classic leftist projection, that every homophobe is just a closeted homo, and all that anger and disgust would vanish if they simply 'accepted themselves as they are'. I just didn't think it would play out so fast and so in your face. Within the same episode, we see the sodomite try to kiss the redneck, earning him a beating, and then, five or so minutes later in the show, the redneck showing up at the sodomite's house for some sodomy. It's the fastest I've seen this cliché displayed. And of course the redneck 'falls in love' and they start making plans as if they were a couple, because we all know that sodomites are really into monogamy and are totally normal. In the end, the FBI agent was just using him and threatens to reveal his sodomite tendencies to society.

The rednecks are also pretty much cookie-cutter, with the exception of the teenage boy, which is smarter than the rest of them and doesn't really fit and a girl, which is also smarter, but morally reprehensible. The rednecks show family loyalty and respect for heritage, but only for stupid shit. For example, their respect for heritage is to keep on being thieves and they nail this point so much it is absurd. The father gets out of jail and while his daughter (the smart one) is trying to get big money by learning the 'laundering' business, he makes sure to rob liquor stores to make a point that this type of small-time crookery is their 'heritage'. Essentially, the message is: you are either an atomized cosmopolitan or if you have some type of family affiliation and tradition, it's based on crime and stupidity.

Season 2 introduces two things: politics and female empowerment. Let's start with politics.

It portrays the real corruption of the political process: bribery, blackmail, skeletons in the closet. All true. But it makes sure to nail the point that they are all Christian. We all know about the Evangelical involvement in shady stuff, but they paint it as if we were still in the Reagan era. Total leftist projection. Anyway, the politics stuff is also pretty boring – also because it signifies the increased involvement and agency of the main character's wife, Wendy.

And now we get to the 'female empowerment' portion. Wendy basically becomes a psychopath – with even less scruples than her husband and defying him at every turn, because she knows better. She orchestrates all the worse things they do, including murders and baby-stealing, yet they try to portray this as 'female empowerment'. She wasn't likable in season one, and becomes disgustingly evil in season two. While Marty gets a human side and actually shows regret for once, and seems to be affected by all the death and destruction they caused, the wife is on a war path to be the worst person in the whole world. Meanwhile, the daughter is dating the smart redneck kid (but not banging him – they just smoke weed and are all melancholic) after putting out for chad and getting alpha widowed when summer's over. Boring.

Another female empowerment point: since the Mexican guy was killed, the new face of the cartel is a woman – a white, 50 year old divorced attorney that is always mentioning how she 'misses her kids'. Because, you know, women can have it all. The idea that a Mexican cartel would have a white woman as the second in command is extremely funny – but it doesn't really translate to entertainment as it's treated seriously.

The other female shown prominently to be 'empowered' is Darlene, from the redneck cartel, the one that shot the Mexican guy and is completely and utterly unreasonable at every fucking step. I have never seen a more unreasonable character. Even a meth-head would have more sense than her, supposedly because she honors 'heritage' as I mentioned. But everything she does is counterproductive.

This shit gets really in your face towards the end of season two in a specific episode: all female characters are shown to 'stand up' to their male counterparts (wives to husbands, daughters to fathers, etc). This is supposed to be a good thing but it's funny because all of their actions are objectively bad and destructive, to them and those they supposedly care about. So the lesson that a normal person would take is: really bad things happen when women disobey their men. But leftists are not normal. So despite all the bad things caused by female disobedience, the male characters either give in or get killed, so that female empowerment can reign free and wreck some more lives.

Given this orgy of leftist tropes, of course it got renewed. So I'm really looking forward to season three where we find out that the head of the Mexican cartel is transgender and uses drug money to champion LGBT+ rights.

In short, the show is a not so subtle vehicle for progressive propaganda, as all Netflix shows now seem to be. It is also not particularly well written and you have to fight hard to suspend your disbelief. The best I can say is that it has a nice setting and interesting shots at times.

3/10, WNWA.
This review of Season 1 is so spot on. i didn’t even watch Season 2 because the characters were so...just no. I remember watching episode 1 with my brother, and we got into a disagreement as to whether the protagonist should have stayed with Wendy. If that were me I woulda let her go.

I also agree that the vistas were amazing, I’d love to get a cabin up in that place and just paint all day and smoke a joint.

I have been watching the Haunting of Hill House. I read the book, and I do enjoybseeing the similarities and differences between the Netflix version. I’m a nerd like that though.

The interracial thing doesn’t bother me, it’s 2019 bruh! Nelly, Theo, and that Asian chick can all get it from me!Banana

Anyone seen Maniac? Would recommend if you like psychological type shows.

Black Mirror is so hit or miss for me. Some episodes had me captivated the entire time, others were just trash. I am curious about this interactive movie thing though.

Started 'American Horror Story' on Netflix. Halfway through the first season and it's good so far. I've heard very bad things about subsequent seasons so I'm tensed for the quality drop whenever it comes. And the increase in SJW content and general cuckery, I'm sure that's coming as well.

7 seasons! Wonder if I make it.

I'm opened to being surprised. I couldn't even finish Episode 2. But I can give it another shot if I read the plot drastically changes and that Season 1 is a must-watch by many of you here.

RE: Netflix Thread
Interesting thread, but I hadn't time to read it completely - but will do so soon to see the other opinions out there.

Anyway, first my general view:
I would advise against a netflix subscription, as this company is so massively SJW infested that I can't stand it. My cousin did share her account login with me over a year ago, but honestly, I watched only 4-5 things on Netflix.

Moneywise, it's better to "invest" in a Usenet/VPN subscription. TBH my main motivation against spending money on that is, that I just don't want to give all of these hollywood degenerates my money. (And sry for breaking 1st rule of Usenet Tongue - I don't know how far I can go into details concerning the forum rules, so I'll leave it with this hint. For more details I need more clarification with the forum rules or PM me).

Contentwise, you'd be far better served with red pill stuff on youtube and bitchute. I think the time is far better invested there.


So now some things that I've watched:

# Movies:
* Spectral (2016)
Actually quite ok for people who like scifi (as it's getting quite difficult to find good and interesting scifi movies ...)

* ARQ
(can't recommend it for everyone, for people who like time travel/loop stuff, this is ok to watch)

* This current movie: Birdbox.
SJW infested. All white men are evil - OFC. And even the quota asian guy had to be gay ! (Even if that detail/fact didn't contribute anything to the plot ...).
The usual strong female protagonist and the few black guys are the good guys and even sacrifice themselves ...

Shows:
* Star Trek discovery
(also titled this the "politically correct" Star Trek, it helped a bit to red pill my roommate). Nice graphics, but totally SJW infested, can't even count it. The usual strong female protagonist again, and most men are evil, whatever ...
Really made me sick watching until I started mocking every PC occurence - but only watched few episodes of this s**t.

* Black Mirror
This actually gets interesting. Often SJW infested as well but contentwise some interesting, really weird and dystopic stories, which actually start emerging in real life.
I'd rate as must see.

* Dirty Money
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirty_Mone...TV_series)
Even though sometimes a bit left leaning (and don't agree with all the stuff about Trump in the last episode), a very interesting and good documentation.
I'd rate as must see.

* Rick Morty
Even though I don't like the political views of the writing staff (they are left leaning as I remember), I really like the red & black pills the protagonist Rick spills out througout the series (and created some leftist/NPC outrage - so it must be good).
As you already have a Netflix sub, you can watch it there and I'd rate as must see.

Premise is basically a well-read, tech savvy Elliot Rodgers type eliminating threats that get in the way of him being with the chick he’s obsessed with.

Reasonably captivating so far.
That "You" show is pretty good, it actually surprised me when I thought it would not explore female nature- It really went into how selfish and self obsessed women are, and how much they lie. Dude is certified crazy though, and Benji tried to put him on game.....you will see how that works out. Putting women on a pedestal is a great way to get shit on-If you put women on a pedestal the only way they see you is if they look down.......furthermore women do not belong on a pedestal so do not put them there.

I'm having trouble finding the good in this show. Cernovich described it as "Black Mirror meets Gossip Girl."

All I see is an introspective chode who pedestalizes the girl of his interest. Like a good nu-male he believes evil men are out to get her. She needs saving. Only he can help her. She's not responsible for any of her shitty choices in life. The show is just filled with progressive talking points, which makes it unbearable. Not to mention he's a full-blown stalker who will jerk-off in the bushes while being a Peeping Tom. In my opinion, the main character is a flop (his Cosmopolitan dating advice is laughable) and his love interest is the kind of woman we should be ignoring or ghosting after the first bang.
I don't want to post spoilers so finish the series then I will post a review and you can rebut or agree with the points I lay out. Or you can do a review and I will post a reply. Your call-I am itching to add value to this thread-lot of secret red pills in that show....

I'm opened to being surprised. I couldn't even finish Episode 2. But I can give it another shot if I read the plot drastically changes and that Season 1 is a must-watch by many of you here.
You will not like it until she starts really showing female nature around halfway through-they even give her an inner monologue.

I thought so, too. But it turns out to be quite ok, it's nearly literally only the first 36 minutes. Not too much pc crap afterwards.

Would you recommend I continue?

Yes, it's indeed better than the usual NF crap these days. Story has some holes but overall enjoyable. IMHO.

Quote:Netflix is raising its prices again, and the news is sending the company’s stock up more than 6 percent Tuesday.

Netflix’s cheapest basic plan will cost $9, up from $8; its most popular HD standard plan will cost $13, up from $11; and its 4K premium plan will cost $16, up from $14.

The rate hikes constitute a jump of between 13 and 18 percent — the company’s biggest increase since launching its streaming service 12 years ago — and will take effect immediately for new customers. Existing subscribers will see the price increase on their bills over the next three months.

RE: Netflix Thread
I’m 6 episodes into “You.”

It is not good and I can’t recommend it. One of the most basic requirements of good TV is “show, don’t tell.” “You” basically ignores this and large parts of the show are spent looking at an empty hall or a blank faced actor while a narration runs. If the show were decently written/directed, it wouldn’t be so narration heavy.

It is surprisingly red pill in spots, however. Guy saves a girl’s life, romances her, gets a kiss, and then the girl bangs out some dude from Tinder before they can date because he doesn’t escalate.

Where do you see that in media? But we all know that happens more often than the fairy tale.

But it’s blue pill towards the demographic that it’s aimed to. One of the big blue pills aimed at women is feeding their solipsism. Here, all of the encounters of the main woman really are the result of stalkers or sex crazed men or obsessed jealous women.

So the series isn’t really red pill. I understand that “you” has some production connection to the Lifetime channel for women. Because men don’t watch Lifetime, you can find all sorts of red pill characteriztions of women on that network that would never air on any major network. It turns out that women like to watch crazy women, because crazy women have more fun,

I don't want to spoil it for you so I will keep my trap shut. However I loved the Tinder stuff, and the back and forth between the vapid women-it is very real , and how women are. I will leave it at that-Also the main girl lies like it makes her teeth white.

RE: Netflix Thread
This isn't a Netflix show (and ordinarily something I wouldn't bother watching), but while home for the holidays my mom started Big Little Lies and I ended up getting sucked into it with her.

It's an HBO drama/murder mystery about three upper middle class white moms living in Monterey, CA. I thought it would be some regurgitated Housewives of Orange County shit, but it turned out to be a surprisingly red pill show that does a great job of displaying the true nature of women.

You've got one mom who was raped after a drunken ONS but decides to keep the kid; another one whose alpha ex-husband left shortly after their first kid was born only to remarry younger/hotter/tighter (while the woman remarries a beta provider and cheats on him); the third is being physically abused by her husband but gets so turned on by his violence that all their fights end with passionate fucking.

The show certainly doesn't portray men in a very good light (what else is new these days), but it doesn't put the women on a pedestal either - they're all uniquely flawed, whether through status chasing addictions, terrible short term decision making, or lack of introspective ability to see how they are the cause of all their life's problems.

The story is gripping, the soundtrack is fantastic, and you get to see Nicole Kidman naked multiple times. If you're looking to spend a cold winter weekend inside and need something your girl will watch that you might also enjoy, I'd recommend BLL.

RE: Netflix Thread
I've given up on 'American Horror Story' halfway through the second season. Absolute drivel. Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.

-----------

Started season 2 of 'The Punisher' to see if any lessons were learned from the piss-poor first season (though I'm in the minority here as lots liked it). Personally, I loved the Punisher scenes in Daredevil, but they fucked up in Season 1 and even more so in this second one.

I'm only 4 episodes in, so it might get better, but so far ....(sigh!).....

.... Frank has an uncharacteristic one-night-stand with a tatted-up single-mom who's a 5 on a good day.

Frank trades punches with wimmin assassins. Thankfully, they at least let him win against them, but nobody wants to see this.

Frank white-knights for an extremely obnoxious teenage girl and I get the sinking feeling that she's going to be in the whole series from now on. She might even (shudder!) become his 'partner' or something.

Berthnal can't act. There, I said it. This was fine in his prior cameo role, but he's exposed here.

The baddie is an evil christian white man with what looks like scrubbed out neo-nazi tattoos! Hilariously, they went for obvious stuff like an Iron Cross, so normies would get the association easily. I just knew something like this was coming. He's the best character so far by the way and probably the only thing keeping me watching.

I've waited years for a Punisher tv show and the best they can give me is a scene where the bratty kid takes a slug out of his bare ass! Really!

The 'Jigsaw' story had better get better fast.

---------
On the plus side, Netflix have a wonderful show called 'Legends Of Strength'. I watched the first episode about Eugen Sandow and it was fantastic. As well as being a legit strongman, he was the first real bodybuilding 'crossover'. Sadly, they didn't even give him a grave at the end after a family dispute (think he was unfaithful). A modern-day relative ponied up for a nice grave for him now though, a massive standing stone with just his name engraved. Sandow died soon after lifting his car out of a ditch.

RE: Netflix Thread
Last night I was having a smoke with my brother in law after dinner and he mentioned that he just started watching a new British Netflix show that’s ‘really cool’, called Sex Education. Knowing Netflix and hearing the name, I immediately prepared myself for the worst.

The basic premise, according to him, was: a geeky kid whose mother is a sex therapist starts giving sex therapy to his schoolmates. After my recent experience with Ozark, and hearing his description, I knew I wouldn't watch it but I wanted to confirm my worst suspicions and read the wiki article on it. It’s everything I expected and more.

According to the wiki, the kids are in Sixth Form (so should be around 16-17 years old).

Some of the character descriptions are hilarious (or depressing, depending on your mood). The sex-therapist mother is “divorced and regularly has one-night stands but is non-committal.” The kid’s best friend is “gay and comes from a religious African family” (ahahaha). There’s another kid, who is one of the most popular at school, which is also openly gay. There’s a girl who “writes alien erotica, and is determined to lose her virginity as soon as possible.

The episode synopses are even better:

The main character “struggles with his inability to masturbate”. Another kid “is unable to orgasm after sex”. At a house party hosted by the main kid and his female promiscuous friend to advertise their ‘sex therapy’ business, the black gay kid “attempts to teach the girls how to properly perform fellatio, but while practicing on bananas, one girl's gag reflex kicks in and they all wind up vomiting on each other.” Another girl “discovers that she is pregnant, has sex with Jackson to take her mind off things.” She then gets an abortion. At the abortion clinic the main kid "offers relationship advice to a pro-life couple protesting outside" and after she gets the baby killed, he walks the girl home "and they share a heartfelt hug". Another girl goes to the gay African kid’s house and “tries to have sex with him, but ends up playing with makeup and watching gay porn once she discovers Eric is gay.” He is presented as dressing flamboyantly in general, but especially on his birthday, during which his “phone and wallet are stolen, and he is assaulted by two homophobes on the way home”. After that he becomes “increasingly isolated” and “tries to dress ‘more normal’." He then decides to go to Church and «the pastor talks about loving yourself, and Eric feels welcome» so he decides to go the school dance “in drag” and after that starts “wearing makeup to school”. He also has sex (sodomy) with the other gay kid at school. The season ends with Otis being “finally able to masturbate”.

The synopses are fairly short, so one can imagine that a lot more goes on that could be included in this catalog of vile plot lines, along with non-narrative cues like music (think of all the Youtube videos talking about disgusting stuff like Puppy Play or Children Drag Queens that have silly-happy ukulele music to soothe your soul into submission to perversion), or subliminal symbolism. Even if it doesn't, the stories, characters, and the in-your-face nature of it all is enough to convince me that this is yet another piece of diversity and degenerate propaganda by Netflix. People actually pay to watch shit like this.

This is the kind of filth and vulgarity that is acclaimed by critics and watched by 40 million people within a week of release (again, according to Wikipedia).

Given stories like this and the general state of British society, I can’t say that the show is way off about what it covers, in the sense that society has indeed descended into utter sex-obsession and perversion. But it’s a sad commentary on society as well as art, when it ceases to be aspirational in any way, and simply creeps at the bottom, bathing in its most disgusting goo like a pig in mud, reinforcing the worst aspects of modern western civilization. The debasement is complete and all-encompassing. Have I mentioned this is a comedy?

The most vexing part perhaps is that my brother in law, along with most people, don’t notice the general trend of decay and degeneration, every step is taken without any thinking about where it leads. This show along with many others in the 'current year' make American Pie, or even something more recent like the Inbetweeners seem quaint in comparison. Things are definitely picking up pace in the race to the bottom.

When we have bestiality, incest and pedophilia plot lines being treated as ‘just another story’, as just another teenage drama or dilemma, I wonder if normal people will think twice about it and realize that they are being conditioned or if, just as now, will be acclimated and desensitized to the point of moral retardation, lulled to apathy by entertainment and material comfort.

I guess what I'm trying to say is fuck this gay earth.

David Fincher's 'Love, Death & Robots'

Well worth a watch lads!

Netflix's new anthology series of 18 animated stories. The (rare) 18 Certificate is justified for once, so don't watch it with young kids present (gratuitous violence, nudity the lot).

[Image: SEI_56801715.jpg?quality=90&stri...;amp;ssl=1]

I'm halfway through it and well impressed so far. Each story is standalone (and different!) and between 6 and 17 minutes long. Ideal for just dipping in and out of as you fancy.

There's sjw elements to be detected if you're senses are honed enough, but that's only to be expected these days and the series can easily be enjoyed by members of this board regardless (It's actually been hammered as 'sexist', by all the internet cultural gatekeepers, if that helps). The animation is top-notch and much like the stories themselves, varies in style from episode to episode.

I've spoken of my love for these old anthology-style shows before in my 'Ballad of Buster Scraggs' review (watch that too!). Reminds me so much of Creepshow and Tales from the Darkside etc.
