Dont see many people talking about this show. It does seem like a bit of a shame that not many people discuss HBO's foreign productions. Just wanted a place to discuss it. I like it so far and the premise seems interesting. For those interested in horror shows, i would give this a shot. And let the discussion roll in. i would like to here some opinions
What’s the level of horror?
Oddly enough I can't watch English speaking content with subtitles on because it's too distracting, but after watching a few dozen foreign movies and series (shoutout Dark!) this no longer bothers me at all past the first couple of minutes.
I wonder if deaf people read takes like yours and mine and scoff at the absurdity of it.
Regarding the show, I haven't started it yet but it just landed on my radar yesterday. I plan to give it a shot in the next couple of days. I hear it gets pretty nuts very quickly.
For example, when there is in a song playing in the background while 2 people are talking, they insert the lyrics of the song in and around the dialog of the characters. Even not being deaf that is annoying. I can't imagine if I was.
Also, I love how the subtitles put up phrases like 'Insects Chittering" as if a deaf person would have any idea what that means. or "Wind Howls" etc.
Admitting up front, this show is a little soap opera/tells novella. I almost bailed after 2 episodes cause it was a little to much but the story and mystery picks up so I couldnt resist finding out more. Personally I'm glad I kept going but the shows not over yet so I could still hate it.
@Noel There is some horror/body horror but it is not THAT terrible. Honestly epsiode 1 and 2 are the scariest so if you can handle them your fine (only 4 in mind you).
Now to the story- if you are not into religion dont even try. If you can deal it's a big mystery and I like the build up here. It's very DaVinci Code meets Constantine but that mystery is going to turn into something crazy I think. The cliffhanger from 4 turned my whole idea of the show around.
Anyway, dont want to get to spoilery unless more people have seen it glad to hear people talking about it
