Finished season 1 last night. Interesting show. Lots of blood and guts, but interesting concept. I think the show was #1 on netflix the past month. South Korean series.

I enjoyed it. Sheds light on their massive personal debt problem too.

I like my chances on all the games except for the last one. I don't like games of pure luck

That last one was pretty sick.

Watched it with the fam, my daughters really liked it. It is interesting and keeps you engaged.
I heard the translation was pretty watered down and there is a lot more to the story if you are a Korean speaker.

The part about the Pakistani guy, Ali, was a bummer. But, Korea is pretty homogeneous and figured he was like a red-shirt guy in Star Trek...but his character had some substance to it, unlike a typical red-shirt.

Yep, lots of fencing masks with triangles, circles and squares! Ha!

looked pretty strange and netflix and social media seemed to pump it up as popular and #1 and viral long before it had much viewership which is always odd. I cant seem to get into these modern netflix/streaming fiction series, maybe one day!

I let my son, 17 year old, watch it, he liked it. Said the ending was not expected. I plan on starting it tonite.

If you want to watch some good foreign shows on Netflix, I'd recommend, Shtisel, Rita, Lillehammer, The Detectorists, Toast of London, Sex Education, Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories, Samurai Gourmet.

On Prime: Merli, Seaside Hotel, All Creatures Great and Small, and Fleabag

I just did all of Death in Paradise and I'm hooked on the Great British Baking Show, it's the ultimate show for decompression. 8 out of 10 cats is hilarious too; unedited adult humor is fucking hilarious.

Killing Eve was good.

Squids reminded me of the picture of the year Parasite a bit. Pretty good.

That was definitely interesting. Extremely graphic violence. Overall, a good story and some of the clues were there but but I missed them. I see the sequel seeds.

Ha! I thought you were making a pun about the costume wearers sitting on the boat waiting to go to the island like in Squid Games.

BTW - i saw one that was not a bought costume. It looked pretty good and was worn by a woman. Kinda cool.
