After months of refusing to do so because they changed the original story so much, I finally started watching Interview with the Vampire and I love it!

Or rather loved it, because Claudia is annoying af, I hope she will be gone fast. I get that casting a young adult to play a teen is easier than keeping the original child role, but did they have to make her into a walking quirky zoomer stereotype? Kirsten Dunst (who was great despite being super young) also made you hate her because she was an intelligent cunning little sociopath but new Claudia looks 18 yet behaves like a retarded 11yo boy who's stomping through the world. Her worries about never being a proper woman also aren't believable because she does look like a young woman? Especially a 100 years ago nobody would have refered to her as a little child, they might not even have bought that young-looking Louis could be her father, oftentimes they look more like a couple which is uncomfortable to watch.

It's interesting that back then Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt didn't even kiss, meanwhile now they can have sex and share a coffin…but it's nice that their love is shown more.
All in all it does seem like a high quality production to me, the costumes are nice and New Orleans is of course always lovely, no matter the century. Sometimes it's a bit too woke (e.g. why would they have used the word "queer" back then?) but in general the change from Louis being a slave owner to being a brothel owner was done well enough.

Skylar is my favorite character. She's based and and so brave to stand up to Walt's constant bullshit just to protect her family. He constantly gaslights her too and makes her entire family think she's some huge bitch but somehow moids side with Walt over her.

I'm watching Sopranos for the first time and while I do love Melfi, especially after the ending of season 3 Episode 4, it's interesting to see just how awkward her approach to therapy is at times.
Obviously nowadays we have more guidance on how to go about certain situations, but I'm on the verge of pulling out my hair when she doesn't even bother to initiate a further conversation after Tony says something that has a lot of potential of getting him to open up.

I just finished season 1 of this show called From. First of all it's a really stupid name, and it makes looking up discussions on an already less popular series pretty much impossible.
But anyways I think it's a nice concept I just wish there was even a small explanation of literally anything, but I'm gonna start watching season 2 and see what comes up lol. I think shows like this really benefit from being more typical 22 episode type shows, because there's so many characters, and they each get time to be more fleshed out, but somehow there was enough boring filler in these 10 episodes

Nta but anon's criticisms are so minor. It's a really good show outside of the things she mentioned. And I never personally got the impression that Claudia talked like a zoomer (though I agree thar her actress is too old for the part.) As someone who loved VC as a teenager, I was really happy with the show. It stays true to the characterization and themes of the book while also adding some fresh ideas.

>stays true to the characterization and themes of the book
Is that true? I haven't read the books but I watched the new show with a big Anne Rice fan and apparently the reporter is acting completely out of character right from the start because in the books he was obsessed with becoming immortal immediately after the events of Interview With a Vampire. Like he's so obsessed that after hearing Louis' story he immediately drives 24 hours or something to search for Lestat because he wants to be a vampire so badly (eventually he gets someone else to turn him) and the idea that he would have lived a normal life and let himself age into an old man when he knows vampires are real is absurd, he would have died trying.

I started watching it also for the first time a few months ago. I find the show a bit frustrating at times(just the characters not so much the show itself) and also expected it to be more violent , but I’m not complaining about that part. It’s an interesting show and I enjoy the dry humor of it.

I watched 12oz Mouse for the first time the other day and a few episodes into the second season it started to click and now I can't get it out of my head.

I only watched the original 2 seasons, It was revived for a 3rd season in 2020 but we all know how that kind of thing goes and I heard it was no good so I'm ignoring season 3. There's a version of the first two seasons of episodes that was recut into a movie and I'd like to find that and watch it next.

It gets a lot of hate from animation nerds for being "low effort" but I came to realize that the low effort character designs and animation are part of the point, like how the play Our Town is performed on a bare stage. The writing and voice acting is also not what I expected at all, I imagined that the low-effort animation was meant to carry improv comedy like in ATHF or Home Movies but it's really not comedic and funny-haha as much as it is funny-weird and bizarre and unsettling. The pacing is extremely slow and the first few episodes are just throwaway gags, I had a hard time believing that it was David Lynch influenced but then at a certain point it really becomes more than the sum of its parts in a way I can only describe as Lynchian. It's a lot like Twin Peaks in how it throws random situations and visuals and characters and snippets of conversation at you and you kindof have to feel out what the point they're making is. There is a plot of sorts, but it's buried in all that other stuff and the plot isn't necessarily the point. Before you ask, no I was not smoking weed and that is not why I came to enjoy it.

Has anyone else watched this show and do you think you "got it"?

Imo she definitely behaves and also talks in a very stereotypical nowadays kid way, being bratty, sassy and they even have her do a vampire version of self harm. It's especially annoying and offputting because she still behaves that way years after becoming a vampire, like inside she's 25 and yet does things like smashing a macaron on the wall for fun…? Even if they now spoil her, she still grew up as a poor and abused black girl in 1900, in reality at 14 she would be basically considered an adult already, so it's just unrealistic that she'd turn this way immediately after becoming a vampire.
Book Claudia is smart and evil beyond her years in how she kills and gets her way, and this one is the total opposite.

>>346370
I was so focused on the other 3 that I totally forgot that his story makes zero sense. You're absolutely right, he'd have rather killed himself than not becoming a vampire as soon as possible after the interview. I guess in my mind I kind of started mixing him up with David (he's very similar to him now, maybe this was even the shows intention?), so I thought Oh well, he will get turned before he's so old that he dies.

No. 346407

Claudia is devious and relatively smart in the book, but she was still impulsive and short-sided. Of the three leads, she's the most different from the books in terms of personality, but I just didn't get the impression that she was super anachronistic in terms of performance. I will say though that Kirsten Dunst gave a better performance.

>>346370
I can't really argue with your point about Daniel, it's a pretty big difference that he chose to move on. However I think the show uses that difference as an opportunity to take his character in interesting directions. It makes the issue of his mortality more urgent, for one, and his jaded sarcasm while giving the interview is a nice contrast to Louis' narration. Idk, that's definitely subjective though.

Has anyone here been keeping up with the new Percy Jackson Disney+ show? It was hyped up for so long by fans who wanted a decent adaption of the story after the movies dropped the ball, but it's turned out to be almost as divisive as the movies. The pacing is horrible, the acting is wooden and nobody behaves like a real life human, and the episodes are sanitized to hell and back with muddled conflicts and zero action even though they're each being made on a 10+ million dollar budget.

Picrel the entire fanbase is on turbocope mode about how badly the show has turned out. It’s become impossible to criticize any aspect of the show without the discussion going to shit because fans feel like they need to defend it. Whenever you want to point out a flaw, the response is always “it’s for kids, who cares if it’s lazy?” and “the author is involved this time, so we have to respect his vision!” As a kid who used to be obsessed with the series, I remember seething over how disloyal the first two movie adaptations were to the books, but honestly… the movies are much more watchable and coherent than this new show, which is insane.

Even though the show is trash, I feel bad for the child actors. They haven’t done very well, but I think that’s mostly the fault of a terrible script and even worse direction. There’s only so much they can do with what little they’re given. I think it was especially retarded to cast a black actress to play an unambiguously blonde-haired, blue-eyed character, but that’s not that little girl’s fault. If anything, Riordan set her up for failure. Annabeth’s physical appearance is mentioned constantly in the books, so it was incredibly naive to think a colorblind casting for this role wouldn’t receive any flack whatsoever. I can’t help but find it callous that he basically put a child in a position to receive so much racist hatred and his only real response to any of it was, “don’t listen to the haters, I chose you.” Like, thanks? What fucking good does that do?

Idk, I am pretty bummed out about this, and I was wondering what other anons had to say about it. I was holding out hope that this would turn out good because I have so much nostalgia for the books, but it might be a lost cause at this point. In my opinion, the PJO books are already very dated and don’t have any of the same timeless charm as something like Harry Potter, so maybe that’s why an adaptation was always doomed to fail.

Is anyone else watching The Curse? I had no idea what to expect going in, but I love it and can't wait to see where the story is going. It's a dark comedy/slow burn 'horror' (kinda) written by Nathan Fielder and one of the Safdie brothers (Uncut Gems) and it really shows.

It's pure sexism. I watched the show a few years ago and while I enjoyed it, I noticed Skyler only got hate because she questioned Walter and his end goal.

I also agree the worst character is Jesse, but moids would rather empathize with a literal drug addict/drug seller than a woman who makes sense.

Ugh.I thought I'd have some laughs and revisit some nostalgia from my high school days, turns out Jackass was completely recut for Paramount/Amazon. There's a warning about "outdated social norms" at the beginning of every episode, kek. In just the first episode they removed Johnny being shot out of a cannon and used the intro to Episode 2 for Episode 1 instead, (and reused the same intro again for Episode 2…?) The entire Wee-Man segment is cut out. A ton of the stunts are cut out now like Johnny jumping over the LA river, Naked Dave is cut out. ALL of the music (CKY and everything else) was removed and replaced by stock music, even the added sound effects are different. It's weird and it sucks now.

Turning 30 without a stable relationship compared to your high school friends. Reading a book about feminism and bonding with your friends about it.

man episode one…. i think we're in for some reddit shit unfortunately. the magic of s1 is in its subtlety, the moments revealing some unfathomable metaphysics are few and far between and all questionable as rust's unreliable perspective. its like he and us as the audience are taking sideways glances at something unknowable hidden beneath the grit and mundanity of human lives, human violence, human suffering. the fact that the script is always played unflinchingly straight is also so unique and special in a time of tv that seems to fucking mock you for watching it in its ugly shallow dialogue. this last point may be just a problem with trying to write realistic dialogue for this moment in time, where, it is true, people talk in stupid internet memetic cliches. they could work around the decay of contemporary language in the 2012 segments of s1 because rust and marty are out of touch and stuck in their past, unable to move forward, and rust is antisocial anyway.
i think the scope is also key to s1s success. episode one is laser focused on rust and marty and their relationship, and this is the core of the show. nothing happens that isnt important to that dynamic in one way or another, every interaction they have comes back to them.

already in s4e1 they have introduced way too many characters. our focal point is liz and navarro but i could hardly pay attention to what we were getting told about them because another fucking character and relationship and dynamic was introduced every two seconds.
wrt what i said about s1 dialogue, the dialogue was the first thing that jumped out at me as grating in this episode (aside from the music, whoever was in charge of that needs to be shot). fucking hell, "my spirit animal eats old white ladies like you"??? "how did i fall for a white boy"????? the entire interaction between the father-son cop duo at the fathers house??????? FUCKING "SHE'S AWAKE". just awful, stilted, weighed down so heavily by twitter memespeech or just shallow nothingness. there was not a single line in the episode that struck me with the same immediate charm and intrigue that was so engrossing in s1. the only ones that stood out for me were the former ones that made me physically cringe to hear. and like i said, i know that it is not uncommon to come across people who unironically speak like that in current year, so i dont really know how id work around it if i wanted to write realistic contemporary dialogue. but to be honest, s1s dialogue went way off the rails of realism nearly every time rust spoke lol. but it was only possible for that to work with marty as the ultranormie straight man to rust's depressive shit. s4e1 characters hardly even seem like theyre talking to each other at all. i dont know how else to describe it. its so self conscious.

the supernatural shit happening ever 2 seconds just tired it out too!!!! if i was editing that episode down, i would keep the supernatural stuff to the ghost husband interpretive dance thing happening right after the dead wolf moves a bit. that was great. maybe i would start the episode with that (the beginning with the native man watching those terrible CGI reindeer run away from a MYSTERIOUS SOMETHING was uninspired and gave kind of a noble savage impression in an odd way) and have the police discover the bodies of the scientists frozen in the ice, and then move to investigate the abandoned lab. thered be so much more space to actually establish characters. i did really like navarro's run in with the polar bear at the end so i'd keep that but all the other gay little supernatural bits begone. and jesus christ, CUT the "SHE'S AWAKE" crap that was unbearable. if they had done it ONCE i may have let it slide. but they had to repeat it a million times because they have no respect for the audience. even if this does become a plot point where those who heard it bring it up and talk about it, which it won't, it's just so uninspired. a way better way to use that phrase would be to cut all the audio of it and have it written on the whiteboard in the lab instead of we're all dead or whatever.

anyway i liked jodie foster's performance especially when she was doing a little police brutality and being mildly racist. shes so hot so ill keep watching but i will also keep complaining. i never watched s2-3 but if anything this is really making me feel good about that decision.

I'm about halfway through and wondering where the plot is going next. Hamish as Father Paul is really delivering with the sermons and sexy in his tight pants. the first couple episodes I was skeptical (the alcoholic convict main character is a little dry compared to the rest of the cast and Bev is an annoying Karen) if I want to continue but it picked up. If I end up enjoying the ending of the series I may check out the directors other works. I'm not usually big on shows where the episodes are an hour if they span too long but it's kept my attention.

I recently went to watch the aristocats on disney plus because it was one of my favorites growing up and it had like a 10 second sign up saying how it had racist stereotypes in it and that instead of removing it they decided to keep it to educate people on america's racist history. disney apparently thinks we're so fucking stupid that we can't tell if something is racist or not or understand that the social and political climate was wildly different in the 1970's.

three or four episode rule should apply to most series, even if it's a short. I find there are worse ways to waste my time than on a fairly brief show, and I complete things so episode 1-2 wont work a cutoff. Unless a show or movie is a total bore or lags in latter seasons if it's long I won't drop it

i'm watching sex and the city and it's so annoying and infuriatingly misogynistic but idk at the same time this is maybe a combination of what normie women are really like (i've never been friends with them) and a product of it's time, i wouldn't know. can't stop watching even though i'm not really enjoying it kek, i'm on season 3 right now. i found it at least more compelling than HBO girls shockingly, that one i quit watching about halfway in because i suddenly realized i wasn't interested in any of the characters and i wasn't engaged in the story at all. i just really love media surrounding female friendship and i'll admit it's refreshing watching a story about women in their 30s(+) having a good time (for the most part). wish there was a similar show today but also not really kek

Back then them having rabbit vibes and magic wands in episodes was the most controversial thing.

it was on channel 4 in the UK but there was another all-female sketch show on the BBC years before this one with French and Saunders. equally brilliant, but more 80s/early 90s. one of their sketches was actually the pre-cursor to Ab Fab (with Dawn French playing Saffy's character)

I watched it all the way through recently. I was 10-16 whilst it aired so it was one of those shows that the girls at my school started to watch as they got closer to 16 and began to show an interest in sex. But I thought I was too much of an NLOG idiot so avoided it.
>wish there was a similar show today but also not really kek
I actually feel the same. it's hard to explain just how much I hate and enjoy it at the same time. there is something so warm about it even though it's soooo shallow and materialistic, and I cannot relate to them or their lives. maybe it's just a snapshot of that era that feels nostalgic for me idk. Did you watch any of the 'And Just Like That'? It's so fucking insanely bad that I actually became fascinated/obsessed. It makes SATC look like a work of art in comparison. and it destroyed Miranda's character by turning her from a smart, sarcastic woman who the audience respects into the most hated character imaginable.

It’s dumb as a whole but it’s well written with good/funny dialogue, does heartfelt moments with ease and has realistic, well-acted characters. Some dating advice still holds up to this day (the „he’s just not that into you” ep should be essential watch for every straight woman), besides the main storyline of chasing the scrote who shows time and time again that he’s not interested in committing to you. I still love the fashion, even Carrie’s more eccentric looks because you can see the thought behind every of it, it’s not just putting random pieces together to be quirky. In summary it was a well-written and witty escapist fantasy with nice visuals which wasn’t pretending to be anything more than that, but still was revolutionary in some ways.
I’m looking forward to watching Girls tbh. I’ve seen some clips on YouTube and I love how trashy they all are and how shitty their friendship is, I also like Jemima Kirke.

I watched the shows in chronological order, starting with Hill House, than Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, The Midnight Club and The Fall of the House of Usher. I liked Hill House the most, followed by The Fall of the House Usher and Midnight Club, Bly Manor was okay, but too close to Hill House, so nothing new and I found Midnight Mass to be very annoying, probably because of the whole religious monologues, kek.
So yes, I would watch Hill House next, it's very different to Midnight Mass, but an enjoyable show and if you like easy, spooky stuff, you will like it.

Watched the first episode yesterday and was underwhelmed too. It's not as atmospheric as the first season, and these attempts at seeming more… modern?actual? gives "how do you do, fellow kids?" vibe a little. Is there no other way to show racial tensions in the community? These are people living side by side in a small town, not some randos talking on twitter. It's like they've just woken up and realized they're different and have different cultures. So far it kind of reminds me of Fortitude (which I didn't particularly like and watched only because of ex) and Mare of Easttown (which I liked), which is not bad but it's not what I expected.

Hey guys what did you think of the ending of true detective? I thought it was so underwhelming and the pace was all over the place, like, it started really slow and then went too fast but not in a positive way, it was more like things were happening all at once because they had no time anymore and it was disappointing. Also all the sex scenes really ruin it, it was the same during season 1, they have no need for that crap, call me prude all you want but that shit is so annoying and uncomfortable and it adds nothing of value to the narrative that you can't show without having some actors making nasty sounds and humping each other.

I can’t lie I loved Night Country. I think the season finale was great, it felt much like a “reveal” chapter in a detective story where cards get turned over one by one. The slow pacing IMO was a good choice for the setting of an isolated town seemingly frozen in perpetual night, where it seems like nothing happens, where its people live uncomplicated routined lives, but reality is entirely opposite. I felt very immersed in the cold, dark, isolated and harsh environment, it gives me a hypothermia-induced drowsiness like I could hibernate until the ice thawed. Every time it shows them driving on invisible roads in total whiteout darkness, it deepens the otherworldly mood. And by contrast I am made very aware of the warmth and passion the town people have for such a hostile depressing living environment and each other, they were here first.
For much of the season I was concerned about the overt supernatural tones, but after the resolution, it was close to a perfect amount of supernatural/sci-fi elements that I loved similarly in Fargo. I admit I wanted to see a lot more of the mine company, ancient DNA stuff, indigenous mystic stuff, I’m sure there were big narrative potentials that couldn’t be realized within 6 episodes. But the story about world-changing discoveries and related questions are meant for another show.
I’m not surprised that the reviews have been mixed. Maybe I’ve grown fatigued of limited series format where every episode has to be pumped full of actions and progress to retain viewing interest. I always felt True Detective was supposed to be character driven more than a gripping plot, I see Night Country gave good effort in doing that as “returning to form” of ss01 so to speak. I don’t agree that a character can only be “fleshed out” if we spell out their every trauma and sin. I could appreciate depth in most of the major characters even though we don’t get to know all their stories. What has happened is less important than how it has changed each town inhabitant.
Anyway it’s funny the rose-colored glasses people have about ss01, in spite of the scrotey shit and r/Iam14andthisisdeep cringe, saying this as someone who liked it a lot. Yes I did find some of the sex scenes uncomfortable, Danvers’ particularly bordered on sacrilege buuut in consolation, the mindbreak of Peter Prior was peak, made for the anons into cute boy suffering, completed with underwear fanservice. Sorry for sperg, the final note is probably that I like stuff that makes men mad.

Forget skins and euphoria, come watch degrassi, now that's the shit.
Degrassi the next generation was really good, it peaked on season 3 and 4 drake getting shot ftw, but a while after that it becomes a pile of flaming crap with only some episodes worth watching. Now if you're feeling the 80s, there is degrassi junior/high, it was nice too and some of the characters there are the parents of the kids in dtng, I mean the same actors and all (though the adult characters in dtng are boring as fuck, even when they try to make them interesting it fails. Very baffling when it comes to spike, and speaking of spike, emma is annoying, imagine going through all the hardships of teen pregnancy only to birth a little shit, yep, that's emma). Don't waste time with dtng post season 9 cus you get a troon but it's a tif at least (nice casting though, she looks exactly like most ssa tifs) but doesn't really matter as it's overall bad, it's not just the tif and she gets killed off later anyway. Then there is next class, don't watch that.

I used to love Superstore, I think it's mostly accurate to the retail experience. However, after a few years of working retail it becomes depressing. I was very much an Amy and I met a guy who was so much like Johah…but realistically, Jonah doesn't actually like Amy. Jonah will abandon the store during 4th quarter, ghost Amy, and move to Wisconsin without explanation!!

This is literally just a gritty mob story with a fucking Batman villain, but I mean considering the failure and fatigue of modern superhero shows, this could be actually somewhat interesting at least.

I'm currently watching The Bob Newhart Show (a sitcom) from 1972. It's from the same company that did The Mary Tyler Moore Show but it isn't remembered as much. I find it has a very cozy vibe.

Patricia Arquette and Joey King really knocked it out of the park with their performances in this show, and despite it being partially fictionalized I thought it accurately portrayed the impact of generational trauma so well, specially in the last few episodes that show Gypsy's childhood and Deedee's behavior with her own mother.

I'm rewatching sex and the city after more than 5 years, it gets even better the older I get lol.
All of the women except Carrie are career goals. Charlotte has the style I love and I always liked how she looked.
Samantha is the absolute best though and the best friend out of the 4.

I want to rewatch Malcolm In The Middle again, it's my comfort TV show but i'm a spoiled weeb who is used to not pay for what i watch and keep track of my watchlist on animu sites, ugh.

Everytime i try to watch it for free i forget at what episode i am and start again, also i'm a bit worried because i remember that the later seasons get kind of disappointing and i don't want it to ruin my perspective of the entire show…
I love a lot of different series but not when it comes to TV shows and i never loved something as much as this, it feels like i'm 8 and i understand the dialogue of Sims 2 characters.

you can't just bookmark the episode you're on? I feel like that's possible with most free streaming sites. or if you're downloading it can't you label the files with a color? just right click and add a red tag to it when you're done watching an episode.

No. 369433

>>369429
Yeah the sites i've used didn't let me bookmark or in some cases they wanted me to create accounts and i didn't want to. The color label is a wonderful idea! But i can't really find how to do it, i just managed to learn about tags (which is weird because i've been trying to do it before kek) i think that i will just download it again and as i continue i'll put the episodes i've seen in another folder.

Nta, but you can probably bookmark in your internet browser.
There are also sites out there you can use to track western tv, just like MAL or whatever.

I’ve been rewatching Desperate Housewives. It’s so fun with all the crazy plot twists and mysteries. I love how all the characters are multifaceted, they have their strengths and weaknesses, they don’t feel like caricatures even though it’s a comedy show. Definitely one of my favourite shows of all time.

My bf said he’ll only watch a couple episodes with me but here we are 6 seasons later, he’s invested now too kekkk

I love a rewatch but I'm always sad Tom never gets his comeuppance for being a delusional moid and Susan never gets truly humbled, the closest she gets is when Julie is like 'actually I was the parent the whole time'. Susan should have died instead of Mike, then he finds his way as a single dad and stepdad

Rewatching Hannibal, I got to the middle of season 2 a few years ago and never finished because I have a bad habit of abandoning shows kek. The dialogue is a bit overwritten but it makes sense when all the characters are educated. I love red dragon/the hannibal books and while a lot of things are toned down for tv I think it really captures the essence of it well. Still disappointed that Clarice isn’t a character in it but I guess they couldn’t get the rights for her or anything in silence of the lambs. She was way more interesting than book will graham but I think they did a great job of fleshing out his character more (even if most of it is just taken from Clarice’s interactions with hannibal). And yes, I love that will and Hannibal’s romantic relationship is teased from the very beginning and they actually had the balls to go through with it. Apologies to ugly old man psyoppers but I genuinely think hugh dancy and mads mikkelsen were nice to look at

Really think you should finish the season. The finale of season 2 is probably my favorite episode of the entire series and it's something I go to rewatch just for it's beauty and emotional impact.

Haven’t gotten to s3 yet but that sounds disappointing, I wonder if it’s because they knew the show would be cancelled so they tried to wrap it up. I would’ve liked to see their take on the silence of the lambs if they got the rights eventually.
