I have obviously missed everyone saying how great it is as I don’t think I’ve seen it mentioned anywhere apart from here :D

I wasn’t sure if you meant in a ‘well, if they thought that was bad then they should should see some of this stuff!’ kind of way.

Not anime, but it reminded me of what I remember of Battle Royale. I guess you found say Hunger Games too, but the psychology seemed closer to the ideas in Battle Royale.


I probably need a rewatch, but I didn't think much of Battle Royale at all at the time.

I remember really enjoying it, but it must be about twenty years ago that I watched it now, so maybe if I watched it with modern eyes I might feel differently. I shall have to see if it is streaming anywhere for a re-watch.

I do have Prime. I haven’t heard of IMDB as a streaming service before so will check it out, thanks :)

Yeah it's a new one, I think, I hadn't noticed it before. Looks like they add in a few 'ad breaks' to fund it. Old school!

I rewatched it today as I’m not feeling too good and so put it on, and I think it still stands up to what I remember, and it’s a good film. The lead-in doesn’t seem to make much sense (it’s an annual ‘competition’, seemingly held by the Government, yet none of the kids seem to have ever heard of it and the whole thing just happens to be overseen by their old teacher), but I think the students’ characters are developed enough in their individual motivations and way they deal with the situation. I still think it’s a great film.

IMDB Movies is odd. There are very short ad breaks, but it’s like they’ve been put in at random, in the very middle of scenes. It would get I. The way if you were watching something where you had to give it some concentration.

SWAT's back (but in Mexico)! The Rookie's back! And The Expanse will be back in December! Which is the perfect reason for this picture, a boat I spotted in Kirkwall, Orkney.

Shouldn’t most of those be in the US Tv thread?

Into The Night on Netflix is an interesting fairly short series. It’s not really Sci-fi, but is a prequel to a very Sci-fi book, The Old Axolotl.
Two seasons available, and a third on the way.

Beforeigners is back on “the internet” and it’s still brilliant.

I have been watching Taskmaster on Youtube...Norwegian Taskmaster...my inner 5 year old finds the Norwegian language amusing.
