RE: The TV Series Thread
I finished season 3 of Money Heist or La Casa de Papel, as it's called in Spanish. It's a Netflix series from Spain.

I actually like it, but I may be biased because it's a Spanish show with Spanish spoken correctly as opposed to the Latin American Spanish I'm used to. I'd give it a shot if you're bored. Forewarning though that the narrator/main character Tokyo is extremely annoying, but she's very easy on the eyes. She's just pushed far too much and becomes very unlikable.

The son is an overweight out-of-shape loser who relies on the other men who are supplied by his criminally retarded father. Perhaps the show redeemed itself later. The Sopranos worked because it was quirky with interesting characters. I found most of the characters in Gomorrah just plain sad or stupid -- or both. It is more like a retarded version of the Sopranos.

If you like shows with a bunch of sad-assed men, such as Big Bang Theory, then you may enjoy Gomorrah.

Surprised to read this frankly, lol. Yeah, the son has quite a bit of a character arc. To say the least...

Regarding "Gomorrah," when you say that "the son has quite a bit of a character arc," do you mean that the sons transforms from an overweight out-of-shape loser who relies on other men into a legitimate alpha-male criminal mastermind. If so, I would be tempted to re-visit the show.

I don't want to give too much away but you should re-visit the show. For the entirety of the first season he is a huge pussy though like you said, I agree. They were just building up his character throughout that season.

RE: The TV Series Thread
A while ago, in a lapse of judgment, I watched How I Met Your Mother. It was actually funny a decent amount of the time, but The Agenda was everywhere (albeit in a more nuanced form than newer shows):

- Barney (played by real-life homosexual Neil Patrick Harris) lives the promiscuous homosexual lifestyle as a straight man, only interested in hookups for the vast majority of the show. It's homosexual id in a straight character. At least he's funny.
- Robin is held up as the ultimately attractive woman who has tons of men falling all over her despite being a hateful, cold-hearted bitch, who hates the idea of children and family, prioritizes her "career" above all else, and who is far less attractive than random background girls in the bar.
- Lily is a master manipulator who exerts total control over her husband Marshall, setting the formula for what the show thinks about marriage. Then when she has a baby, she complains and gets a job as an art director.
- Marshall is a pussified herb to an astronomical degree (second only to that pussy whatshisface from Friends) who is utterly controlled by his wife.
- Ted is consumed by his Love Quest to find the 10/10 Dream Girl who is beautiful, has all the exact same hobbies and tastes as he does, and who fawns over his Brilliant! Witty! Intellectual! personality.

The message is basically to be a playboy who lives for the one-night stand, a hapless Nice Guy with delusions of grandeur, a heartless career bitch, or a manipulative mother hen. Marshall is married and pretty responsible, but he's such a hopeless loser that no man would want to emulate him.

I really don't think I've ever hated a character more than Robin. Everybody's pedestalizing of this man-faced, unlovable thot is quite sickening.

Had such a shit ending as well, the Mother was a good character, very normal for a blue pill Hollywood production, didn't ride the NYC carousel after their first partner passed away, doesn't even go out for nightlife, homely type, then when encouraged by another female friend to "get back out there" instead of going on a slut carousel spree decides to just long term date a NiceGuyTM, of course once bumping into Ted decides to not marry that first NiceGuyTM.

Then she dies, Ted goes back to his Robin oneitis, who lives alone with a hundred dogs.

I just hope that they don't go too woke on that - it does not look like that so far, but who knows. The comic is the polar opposite of woke.

It's set in a darker universe than ours where millions of people were affected by a super-power-inducing drug at different levels. We will see - at least it's not a total obliteration like with the woke Watchmen.

I just watched The Boys and I thought it was excellent. I detected almost no SJW stuff.

I saw it too. It was filled to the brim with SJW-crap. The comics did not even mention anything about #metoo. They changed entire characters and huge arcs for social justice. On top of it - The Boys were supes as well. Millions of people around the world had the V-compound substance in them at varying degrees, this baby-infusion plot is idiotic.

Also the single-mother corporate boss is living breathing propaganda played by Elizabeth Shue - who looks rough for 55. Even if they wanted to gender-swap them, then an ice-cold corporate woman would be a better fit. Because that stuff really does not make much sense.

There are added points - like the CIA deputy director not fucking the main anti-hero. They could not have her succumb to his Alpha charm of course in the metoo era.

My guess is that the changes are significant enough to curb the show. If shows like Game of Thrones had started with metoo crap, then they would have been cancelled by season 3. Unfortunately that is also the case with The Boys. The sheisters changed all female characters - Queen Maeve was an alcoholic who fucked toyboys - they made her into a far more sympathetic character.

Plus - the power-level of the Homelander as well as the power-explanation of the heroes does not make sense. So A-Train has to get constant boosts?

I don't even know why some of those decisions have been made in the show, because it's not as power-depictions are that expensive today - the CW crap SJW shows do it all the time on tiny budgets.

Some of the choices were done to prolong the series and move to several seasons, but frankly they should have gone the comic-route by adding more facets to the entire world, which is honestly more interesting. They should have done all the other teams, then the history parts that started in WWII - instead it is rushed.

Also nice touch with the anti-Christian gay pushing when the Starlight actress sees: "One woman + one man = one marriage" or "Heroes fly straight". Sure - it was also an anti-Christian nod in the comics, but it was well done and wasn't delivered with the SJW-sledgehammer like in the show.

The casting choice for some was also a bit off. The Deep was race-swapped in order to make him look like an asshat. Also useless to make him out to be the only sex-offender. In the comics she blew 3 guys and that was far more fitting. The TV series does not even remotely convey the full real fear that the people feel around the Homelander. He could survive multiple nukes and the government would be sweating bullets to get this under control. That was one of the reasons for the existence of the Boys in the first place.

So yeah - the TV series is a dumbed-down, #metoo-ed, far-left version of the far superior comics. Entire characters were raped and twisted, gender- and race-swapped for SJW-plot-points - sure plenty of the old was left, but it's a gutted story.

RE: The TV Series Thread
Sorry Simeon, I also thought it was excellent. It wasn't woke at all. The men were men, the women were women. Maeve was bi, which pretty much fit her Wonder Woman ripoff character.

Hughie even had a bit of game. The Boys in general were excellent characters.

There was a bit of anti-Christian crap in there, but that was just playing to the audience. Starlight was reacting to the Christian messages she apparently hadn't even seen before with some disgust, but whatever. I'd say that was the worst of it.

In short: maybe it wasn't the shining crystal palace of perfect that the comic was, but what ever makes it to screen unscathed? Not a thing. This is well worth watching and won't poison you.

Season two, however: Almost guaranteed to be injected with Woke poison.

RE: The TV Series Thread
< It's woke compared to the comics which are not woke at all. And the characters and story is far superior there - having been changed likely for woke reasons. Even the black character from the Boys was far better - the casting is lackluster there. The #metoo shit IS 100% WOKEFEST AND A MAJOR PLOT POINT. The Deep was utterly changed and degraded into the sexist dumb White Male - he was black in the comics. They made the women far far far more positive characters which they were not - even casted deliberately uglier women for example for Billie's wife - that is also wokeness, because the craphead feminazis don't like stunningly beautiful Redheads.

It's SJW to a certain degree, but sure - there are far worse examples out there and compared to that then it was a Red Pill masterpiece. Though sadly that is about the best you can get from Wokepedowood - SJWism at 40% instead of 100% with Supergirl.

Another Life. Netflix Sci-Fi. Trailer looked watchable.


Awful. Completely pozzed. Switched off the first episode after 20 minutes when the tranny character appeared.

This is the kind of series that seems was written by someone who cares deeply for the story and genre. Compare it to GOT and you can see the writers started adding current time cultural and political crap from season 3-4 onwards.

On your recommendation, I am trying to watch Dark. I've watched 5 of 10 episodes so far and I'm having trouble maintaining interest. I do want to know what's going on, but it's hard to keep track of the characters, especially which kid belongs to which adult, when they keep flipping from past to future and then introducing new characters. They also so far have introduced certain 'mystery' elements early on, but haven't touched them again in like 3 episodes. I hate when they do that. I guess I shouldn't judge it until it's over, so I'll make another report when I'm done.

Netflix are almost comical now - every fucking show has gays, lesbians, trannies or "diversity" - usually blacks replacing whites.

Stick with it. Re-watch the first five episodes if you must, before moving on to the remainder of the episodes. It is worth it.

Yes, the first half of season one is difficult because the plot is so complex that it takes time to introduce all the characters in their multiple time lines. This is especially difficult if you try to keep track of the various characters while watching the show in German with English subtitles (which I highly recommend, because the English overdub is so incongruous with the appearance of the various actors).

The second half of season one is really intense. Season two is utterly mind blowing. If season three, which is supposed to be the last season, is as sublime as season two, "Dark" will easily rank as one of the best TV shows that I have ever watched. I cannot praise the show enough. It is absolutely outstanding.

I also like the swooping aerial images of the vast woodlands that highlight the beauty of the German landscape, accompanied by somewhat ominous music.

Hiring a bunch of commie SJWs and feminazis as writers and producers already yields dividends for the woke Witcher TV series:





Yeah - everyone can be a Slav. The penis-scrotum armor is just the tip of the iceberg. You will see lots and lots of woke story points twisting the entire plot into a shitty mess.

Heil Diversity! Death to all Gingers and all European cultures and history!

   

   

   

I fully expect this to be 90% woke getting to 98% woke in future seasons. If the Boys got to 40% wokeness level being a clear anti-SJW anti-woke comic book creator's input and slightly independent, then this will be a big steaming pile of shit.

Loved shows like the Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and thought Sons of Anarchy was pretty cool; most of the other TV shows I've tried to watch within the last year or two (e.x. the Blacklist) just ended up boring me or feeling like a "seen it all before kind of thing".

Feel the same way with movies too, maybe it's just my perception but they're feeling too scripted and predictable; tried to watch the new Rocky flick but got bored within the first 30 minutes; just didn't feel a thing like the classic Rocky films to me, but I'd be willing to give it another watch.

Have you tried Better Call Saul? It's actually quite good too for those who enjoyed Breaking Bad.

Saul Goodman was my favorite character in Breaking Bad, so I'm glad they made a serie about him.
I watched one episode of it and enjoyed it, I might catch up on it, thanks.

I agree, I enjoy crime and 'mafia' oriented shows like the Sopranoes, so I naturally liked it - the acting overall was pretty stiff and there weren't any really memorable characters except for Ron Pearlman's character.

Haven't found one which matches the Sopranoes in terms of good acting and dialogue; Breaking Bad was more suspenseful though.

Which sucks, because Ron Peralman is one of the biggest cucks in Hollyweird

I'm sure you guys are all snuggled up and binge watching Dear White People season 3.

I didn't watch it at all but what a brilliant concept. Some big Jews make a show, sell it to netflix, regardless of whether or not anyone watches it, Netflix gotta keep buying it. If not, thery are RASCIST! I love it.

Isn't the Witcher made in Polska? More and more I lose hope even in Poland. Why would a Polish writer let his books spit on with trans, gays and blacks replacing his initial characters? Also, this women above has a huge nose. I don't even google her background. It's getting depressing when your enemy doesn't even care to hide their evil plans anymore guess they know, white men won't get up from the couch to do anything.

< It's not Polish produced. It's a huge US-produced Netflix series. Even The Dark would be super-woke if it were truly done by Americans. Germans did it and thus kept the woke at bay. The core material writer does not matter and the entire writing team is super-woke and feminazi - whether they have some consultant or workers from EE does not matter jack shit.

Though it's true that there are some localized Netflix series in various languages and even casually looking at some of them I can tell you that they are all far less woke than the American one. Only the British tend to be even worse. Scandinavian series contrary to their politics are strangely well-done and often not that woke. Series in EE are veritably Red Pill.

So Lauren with the ((small hats) crew, just changed a ginger character that was written in stones in the book as a ginger, with some diversity and her response is: "I picket that shit" and a kiss smile. How those people even get in the position to write for a Netflix series with millions of budget? She sounds like a toddler. Why we let women even work? It's laughable.

Another Life on Netflix was absolutely terrible - a bunch of moronic idiots sniping and getting butthurt.

Their newest one the Wu Assasins is also badly written and acted garbage. I see the writers for this are also pozzed feminists... what a surprise.

It seems the US based netflix shows these days are teen dramas with added profanity and some violence thrown in to make them TV-MAs. Compared to Amazons 'The Boys' Netflix isnt even in the same ball park anymore.

That 70s show was the best TV series of all time in my book.

The Boys.

Just finished watching - bloody great. Binged over two days. Only eight episodes, but definitely left me wanting more. Best series in quite some time, in fact. Superb cast, fantastic premise, well-drawn characters with clear motivations (mostly revenge!), and solid production values. Dark, funny - most certainly adult - refreshing, and fucked up. Big Grin

RLM review, of sorts - contains spoilers, but there is a warning and a timecode to skip to to avoid:





This one really did surprise me with how good it was.

Didn't trip my 'wokeness' alarm either, amazingly. Any 'social issues' (there are a few) that are brought up are handled cleverly, in a mature and understated way. Ironically, given its Amazon origin, if there is an agenda or message to the show, it's a warning about corporate greed and power.

Be reassured - no safe spaces in this - it's savage. Recommended.

RE: The TV Series Thread
I just started watching it too, though not on amazon, so I'm only on the 4th episode now.
So far it's been really good.

< There is plenty of wokeness in the Boys TV series - they changed a shit-ton just to get those sweet sweet feminist and further woke points.

I could do a list of all the shitty woke changes they did mostly for woke reasons that did not improve on the story, but made it far worse. They added lots of feminist talking points, #metoo crap, made the women more saintly and positive, changed plot points because they likely did not fit the wokeness levels they required etc.

And the wokeness will get screwed up further in the next installments. Though yeah - obviously it's not as bad for now and likely appears almost Red-Pill, when you don't know the comics. It's akin to Rambo being given a soy-latte-hipster outfit. Sure - he is still Rambo and masculine, but he looks like a soy-boy at least in outfit. That is the Boys now - I am sure that they will rape the franchise more in the next seasons.
