    Nothing to worry about here.

    That is true, and it something lost from releasing it all at once, but other shows have managed to pick up steam through word of mouth. BoJack Horseman has an awful first half of its first season, but people who stuck with it were able to spread the word. The most popular shows on Netflix are things like The Office and Friends, shows that have been over for years.

    The good stuff will always have a conversation. I doubt anyone on this forum watched The Sopranos all the way from 1999 to 2007, if they watched it during its original run at all.

    Personally I hate when they release it all at once but I'll just take my time watching a season

    Watching Twin Peaks season 3 week to week was so satisfying. Reminded me of when I was a teenager watching LOST.

    That’s a great example. I wasn’t able to watch it until it was done and binged it all. I still loved it but I bet it was more fun that way.

    The wait between seasons three and four of LOST was one of the most excruciating television experiences ever for me.

    I would have preferred watching Twin Peaks at my own pace. You can always make yourself wait a week if you want.

    The discussion in between episodes of LOST was one of the biggest reasons it was so popular. I wrote a paper on it once in college.

    No matter what I’m sure it’ll be beautiful to look at and leave you with images stuck in your head.

    Roy Andersson's films are so fun. I haven't seen his really early work (he stopped making movies for 25 years), but all of the films in this style are beautifully shot in their own way.

    They idea of releasing episodes weekly rather than all at once is probably an attempt to keep people from just subscribing for a month when whatever they want to watch drops, then binging and quiting.

    edit: just saw the follow up post that they're not doing it for most shows, so nvm

    It really does look like a painting. Or, as someone on reddit pointed out, the framing of a lot of the shots look like they are from a video game and you are seeing the NPCs from a sort of voyeuristic perspective. I 100% feel that too.

    James Bond should die but it's funny seeing people get mad

    I worded that wrong, I meant the franchise has run its course and I'd rather a non Bond female spy film like Atomic Blonde

    Exactly.

    James Bond is a symbol of misogyny and colonialism. Putting a woman in the role doesn't really change that.
     
  22. Would be cool to see a female Bond alongside the current team of Fiennes, Harris, and Whishaw. Doctor Who and Ocean's 8 switched over successfully, so I'm sure Bond could, too. I hadn't thought of what the character symbolizes, though; that's a good point. We do need more new IPs to combat the sequel/reboot cycle, I just always thought of Bond, like Doctor Who, as one of those things the British would put out forever and ever.

    I agree about everything said about Bond I just grew up watching it with my dad so I’d be kinda bummed if it went away completely.

    Never watched a Bond movie all the way through and have no real desire to either ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
