I'm curious to hear what you creative anons might come up with. Post links below.

What TV shows are you watching right now, anons? Let's give each other recommendations!

I just started watching Alias Grace (pic related) and it's so good that I just had to share it with someone. It's a really great representation of what Irish people went through around the time of the Famine, especially the scenes on the coffin ships and the family dynamics. It's pretty upsetting but it's refreshingly realistic for once. I've also been loving the positive female friendship and feminist themes.

I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale or any kind of period dramas like Downton Abbey (although it's a lot more dark than this). Or even anyone who would like to see a less optimistic and darker version of Brooklyn.

I've been getting in to japanese procedurals lately. Unnatural was pretty much excellent all the way through.

I just finished The Boys, Killing Eve and Dead to me. All were very good and I'd recommend them, currently watching Chernobyl. Don't know what to think yet, but it seems promising.

Just binged Fleabag. Holy shit. I'm too sleep deprived to string proper sentences together, but when the self-titled character proclaims "This a love story" at the beginning of season two…yes. Not just in the romantic sense—though, my god, that storyline broke my heart too. First good TV show in a long while. Hit harder than expected. Anyone else seen it?

Anonymous 5809

Nobody mentioned these yet and they're very good in my opinion so if you're on the lookout to binge a new show I recommend The Mentalist: 7 seasons, ended in 2015, fairly old now but my favourite show that I watched 4 times in a row now, it features the best and most well done imo couple on TV; and Succession, which is new and finished its second season last summer and it's a bonkers insane series. But the latter might be triggery if you experienced abuse from family members.

Anonymous 5812

I absolutely love The Mentalist. I remember watching as it was airing and getting so excited with every season finale. I'm still glad that CBS gave it that last short season to wrap everything up.

Been rewatching Sailor Moon. the DIC dub is awful but I love it all the same.

Precure is also something that I am big into. What do you guys think about Healin Good Precure?

Liking it so far. It seems to be a very heartwarming and down-to-earth season so far. Cute mascot characters too (which I can't always say about Precure).

I watched Vibrator recently. It's really beautiful, though a bit of a fantasy depending on how you see it. I'm sure some of the other (older) miners on here would like it too. For a self-inserting target audience the protagonist is a 31 yo alcoholic NEET-ish single woman.
Also, it was done by a pinku/erotica director and there's this almost completely explicit sex scene about 20 minutes in, so don't watch it on a plane or something.

From all the other things you mention, I assume you mean the animated one that came out recently. I watched the live action before and it had some really nice cinematography but the story and the "twist" were just awful. Perhaps the praise is from a wider context, I know it's all based on a novel so maybe it's the novel that's super popular and everyone in Japan forgives the story in the adaptations (or something).

I realized that I hadn't watched any movies during the first half of this year when I ended up watching 4 movies during international flights (2 going, 2 returning). Here are the short responses:

Into the Spiderverse - I ended up watching this twice because none of the other choices seemed that appealing. It's fun, and a good example of how comic adaptations of movies and put the boundaries are visual storytelling.

Crazy Rich Asians - Got around to watching it since the movie selection was so shit. Went in with no expectations other than ~Azn Representation~, and it was okay. A generic romcom as those go, very poor male lead character development, nice outfits and decent atmosphere.

The Lego Movie: The Second Part - I knew going into it that it would not be as good at the original. Turned out better than the Batman version. Had a better message that was aligned with the first one but more catered to ~feminism~, but worse music and a worse plot twist.

I still can't get over Ran. Really made an impact on the way I look at films. I hope it inspires the same kind of feelings in others, but with a long-ish running time and subtitles to read, not too many of my friends would be willing to sit through it :(

Anonymous 5808

Thanks for the reminder anon, I have to watch it again soon. :)


Anonymous 5807[Reply]

Anyone watching Kyokou Suiri? What do you think of it?

Kotoko is cute and I found her attitude refreshing in the first episode, but the more I watch this show, the more I find Saki to be more relatable (and Kotoko can be kind of a brat to her sometimes).

Kuro's backstory is really interesting. The storyline kind of reminds me of (possible spoilers if you haven't caught up to the anime) a Rumiko Takahashi series called Mermaid Forest. If you liked watching the segments on his backstory, I'd recommend watching/reading that.

Love the ED dance.


Parasite (2019) Anonymous 5788[Reply]

What did you think of Parasite? I recently watched it with my bf, and then again with my mom. It was not bad, but honestly it wasn't as ground breaking as people claim it was. The idea itself was actually creative, I'll give it that much, and the message it carries is not an entirely bad one either.

Spoilers ahead (it's just me chimping about a particular part of the film):

Honestly the fact that one of the subplots was Da-hye (who is 17 at best, though most people say she's 16) and Kiwoo (who's at least 21, but could be 23) getting into a relationship just ruined to whole film for me. I don't know how the producer can be so highly regarded when he's putting this on the big screen out of all things.

Like, I can't even begin to explain how disgusted I was when it all went there. I probably sound like a fucking chimp trying to type this all out, but the fact that my natural reflex to it was disgust and continuously saying what the fuck at the screen really says something.

Other than that, though, it would've been a really good movie, if it wasn't for

that plot twist with Moon-gwang's husband just going apeshit. Honestly made no proper sense to me. Like, I get it, he respects Mr. Park as some kind of deity from heaven and knows what's going on with the Kims, but I feel like that subplot I mentioned above is the same as this part of the movie, where it's just in to be in, for the shock value, or whatever. Sure, it was really fucking unexpected and I was honestly kind of taken aback by it, but it felt.. unnecessary..? I don't know.

I have a huge girl crush on Park So-dam (Ki-jung) because of her character in the film.
What are your thoughts?

You HAD to know that would happen though. Part of the fun of the movie is that you sorta know where it's going, and yet you don't. Their romance was just meant to be another stick of dynamite, for the big boom at the end.

Anonymous 5796


Loved it. Simple enough idea executed masterfully, with plenty of cultural, interpersonal, and political nuances.

I knew nothing about it going in so that probably helped too.

Didn't care about the inappropriate age relationship. But I'm a degenerate European so what do I know?

Anonymous 5797

I'm from the UK and I never considered people would find anything wrong with relationships where one person is 16-17 and the other is in their twenties until recently when it has kept coming up online. I knew the US had a high age of consent but I thought it was like the drinking age where it was something people didn't actually care about. I was really surprised to see that people take it so seriously, like being disgusted at the very idea like OP was.

Anonymous 5798

Americans really are strict when it comes to age of consent.

Anonymous 5801

I'm OP, also from Europe. It's also common here (what >>5797 said), but I've always been heavily against it.

I am finally finishing DS9. And I must say I like it. At first I thought a majority of the episodes were boring and kind of dull. But I really like the characters. Garak is my favorite. And I really like Odo and Quark's bickering. I kind of like how they developed more alien cultures. I found some Cardassian and Bojourian(?) conflicts a sonre.

I watched the motion picture yesterday and just finished watching wrath of Khan.
a. what were they thinking with the motion picture? holy shit why is everything so padded out, minutes upon minutes of establishing shots.
I also wish there was more to the "kirk competing with the fresh, new captain of the Enterprise" storyline, it basically ended with bones telling Kirk he was the one competing.
b. wrath of khan was fantastic, I absolutely loved it.
The fact Kirk was sort of coming to terms with needing reading glasses really struck something with me, reminded me a lot of how I felt when my father started wearing reading glasses.

on to the next generation.

I've been itching for an MMO, a lot of it probably comes from the fantasy of reliving a certain aspect of when I was a kid and teenager and Maplestory was a sort of social placebo, but I know I couldn't possibly get into it.
For one, MMOs are all but a dead genre and people don't really use them as a social hub anymore, not when they can jerk around in discord or whatever.
And for two, I guess I just got older, between school and work I hardly have the time for something so time consuming as an MMO, and I also can't imagine lighting that flame that was in me when I was a kid and I was in awe of the new areas I would explore.

I'm shocked they never did anything more with this IP, this game was a blast in almost every way.

I've tried a lot of idol games with female charas: llsif, bandori, mirishita, deresute, t7s, tokidoru and photokatsu. I can say, that all games were good and I've spend a lot of time playing each of them. I recommend every game, but for newbies llsif/bandori gonna be the best, because both of them have an English version. I've also tried to get into imas shiny colors game, but it's way too confusing.
Also, I still wait for love live all stars game, i hope it's gonna be good.
I don't play idols games as much as in past, but I still play deresute and mirishita a little.
