Anyone notice a lot of hot pixels in Netflix content especially queen's gambit and ratched? So maybe not loads loads but enough it's not a one off issue

New snowpiercer episode tonight- I’m hoping they finally reveal just how many cars long the train is!
I can’t find the Snowpiercer thread because I wanted to check.

It is 1034 cars long?
Don't forget, it did change twice from 1000 to 994 to 1034.....

I'm just waiting until Sean Bean's character inevitably gets killed hehe
Careful.

It all kicked off last time someone insinuated that SB dies a lot. hehe
they are adding in Big Alice count to the number this season!

regardless - its actually quite good so far, and Bean, being Bean, is ok, they are still keeping the other characters strong too.

I'm guessing Gardner wanted to step back this season and be on the "polar station" for a while.
Latest episode was great, good to change the pace a little and get off the train for the first time. Some interesting revelations too!
Was a good episode but i did wonder would the petrol engined snow mobile work in -120c? Was hoping as it panned in it would be electric or something

Good Q - i'm guessing thats some tech they have invented - after all they managed to invent the whole train ;-)

i've liked this series, but for some reason i'm not liking it as much as the previous - its a good show though for sure .... and despite everyone banging on about Picard and Discovery, this show and the Expanse is some of the best scifi i've seen in a long time.

It's not as good as the first series but still worth watching.

Has to be in the running for daftest overall concept for a series/film though.

Operation Finale.

Absolutely brilliant, Netflix made film telling true story of the capture of a nation war criminal in the 60's.

Ben Kingsley plays the lead, very well.
Watched this on your recommendation after searching for something to watch.

Very enjoyable film. Oscar Isaac is good as usual.

The first series was better structured for sure as it had a more obvious core to it.

It's loosely based on a French graphic novel so the strangeness comes with the territory.

Murder among the Mormons

Just finished the first episode which was really good. Another one of these type of documentary series Netflix are very good at.

There's not too much going on.

It's odd in that it's well made and acted but not really gripping.

I started it a few years ago - one episode - and picked it up again recently. Finished the first series and into the second. Or is it the third? Don't know and might leave it for a few more years!

Watched the first season of Cobra Kai and thought it was average. Not going to bother with any more. Was surprised given it seemed to get good reviews.

Also, watched Tribes of Europa over the last 2 nights and I did enjoy that.

Reminiscing, it’s not what it used to be!

ahhh those were the days.........

i think its premise was good, focusing on the "losing" character - but then the teen's and teen angst love triangles etc and then when a certain very old guy turns up, it lost it for me

I enjoyed it, but the ending wasn't for me.


First 4 episodes were brilliant, but I though staying as a psychological thriller would have been better than all the 'magic'. But equally, I'm sure for others it was right up their street.

On the plus side - it's very unusual in tv/movies for a Villain to 'win' at the end, as 'he' wasn't even an anti-hero, but a total villain. So always an interesting way to end.
I was expecting a (now) very obvious 'Gone Girl' twist, not the supernatural stuff. I felt a bit cheated like it was only one step away from 'it was all a dream'.
Oh no.

Watched episodes one & two last night thought it was setting up a good premise as a psychological thriller. Just read the spoilers above. Not sure i'll carry on with it biggrin

Some great actors and it has a good look about it but by the end I couldn't care less what happened to any of them
