  • What are you binging right now?

    Ghosts (US) - Rose McIver (iZombie) has a new show, a remake of the UK Ghosts.  Right off the bat it's 1,000% weird seeing her paired with a South Asian man who is not Rahul Kohli.  Haven't seen the original show but the first two episodes of this show are very not for me.  Acting is very broad, jokes rarely seem funny, etc.  Maybe this show will be canceled and Rose can do something better, perhaps as some humorous superhero for Marvel.

    ETA: The UK Ghosts is on HBO Max and is much, much better.

    I’ve been hearing pretty bad reviews (except for BM) so I’m hesitant to watch. I was such a fan of the books and have been burned too many times by crappy adaptations. 

    No harm in waiting for the season to finish before watching.  Even if you decide to not watch the show, it's worth watching the first episode just for the visuals.

    Feels like the show is now on the upswing for a positive season ending.

    Glad they handled the Rebecca/Sam parting gently.

    Obscure reference: Rupert completely giving up the club to Rebecca after having a child reminds me of the plot of one of the characters in First Among Equals https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090431/?ref_=nm_flmg_wr_5

    The Football is Life podcast for this episode talked about some references such as the film After Hours and Homer’s The Odyssey

    as far as the episode goes. what a trip (pun intended)!
    I was surprised the only recreational chemical was alcohol.  Thought for sure there would be psychedelic elements.

    I switched off halfway through. I realised I have no interest in more than a couple of minutes of Coach Beard an episode. 
    Maybe scan near the end for the dance scene.
