    Guys the 10 90 minute episodes is an error on the part of whoever wrote the press release. It's 10 seasons of 90 1 minute episodes.

    Almost done with the final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

    So many actors in this just look like they are having so much fun.

    I never read the books, but I'm surprised the final book is just getting one episode instead of two episodes like all the other books.

    Yeah really this era of media is everyone chasing something another medium is better suited for. Movies want the serialization and crossover-potential of television, television wants the scale and "prestige" of cinema, and video games want both of these things while failing to ever even pursue either of them on more than a superficial level.

    And this wouldn't necessarily even be a bad thing if they were respectively trying to incorporate these concepts into the structures and processes that are their natural strengths, but by and large they aren't doing that and we end up with so many "flawed but with potential" products that suffer from an identity crisis.

    I think this is all very true, though I think I see it as growing pains as these mediums necessarily evolve. It’s interesting to watch these trends develop.

  • CelloCello Registered User regular
    Yeah, if you don't dig it after halfway through the first episode (like me!) then give it time

    If you're three in, then you probably won't dig the rest because you've got an idea of how the writing and pacing are gonna work and that's not gonna change

    Yeah that's the upside of an identity crisis--it's possible to come out the other side as something better.

    Russian Doll ending spoilers
    Some people are reading the final scene as the realities merging again because of both outfit changes being present in the last shot. I'd have to watch it again, I thought that was just a stylistic choice. That said, it's not something I want definitively answered, a dash of ambiguity is nice.

    Russian Doll was so incredibly good.

    Based on earnings calls and other things I’m probably not supposed to go into detail, Disney actually wants to go toe-to-toe with Netflix. This isn’t a token ‘we want to have a streaming service because everyone else has one’ like Warner Bros.

    Honestly most of the original content they've announced has sold the service

    Admittedly I am basically their target audience but The Mandalorian, Loki, The Muppets, Scarlet Witch and Vision, Cassian Andor, High Fidelity, Falcon/Winter Soldier, Monsters Inc, etc.

    That's a lot of shows I would wanna watch

    Whoever gets Suburgatory (which was on ABC so c'mon Disney+!) gets my money.

    i liked that show a lot and I've had the urge to re-watch it at various times over the years, and it is literally not available anywhere.

    Not even on DVD (beyond Season 1).

    It has vanished from this earth.

    Chris Parnell, Jeremy Sisto and Alan Tudyk were hilarious together!

    The only thing keeping me on Netflix are:
    -- FRIENDS
    -- BoJack Horseman
    -- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

    I'd be easy for me to drop it after 2019.

    well a fair number of people didn't like it to begin with, I think one of the common criticisms is that it's too derivative
