He also played a senator in West Wing.

I rewatch MASH at least once a year. Never get tired of that show.

Alan Alda has actually played quite a few stinkers in recent years. He's very good at it.

Any watchers of The Wire here?

I've been watching some clips on YouTube and it looks like something I'd really enjoy. Cops, crime, drugs, city politics, corruption, gangs, etc. I know that actor who played Omar recently died in real life, so I was kinda watching some of his stuff.

I want to watch this and also Boardwalk Empire (which also featured Michael K. Williams).

Thoughts, recommendations on either?

The Wire is great. One of the best series to come out of HBO. Boardwalk Empire I was kind of “meh” on, but I generally don’t like period pieces.

Stranger Things S4 Trailer is out.

Doesn't really show much and certainly leaves more questions as opposed to details.

They also dropped the opening sequence of their Cowboy Bebop remake.

Squid Game? I found it highly watchable...enjoyable in fact.

There's been some hubbub about the subtitles being off, and no lie I did feel like certain dialogues just didn't get the moment, but I still got a good idea from the acting. Recommended 7.75/10

So it goes.

Haven’t watched Squid Game yet, but it’s on my list.

Finished season 2 of Ted Lasso last night. It was good, though less “focused” than season 1 . Felt like they had maybe 1-2 too many story lines. That said, better than the season 2 sophomore slump that can plague story driven series.

I may be the only person on the planet that doesn't like Ted Lasso. I just don't and I don't find the humor funny at all. I like many of the actors involved, but it's just a no for me. Dawg. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So it goes.

I don’t really think of it as a comedy at all. I kinda view it as a spiritual successor to Friday Night Lights. In particular, looking at the similarities between Taylor and Lasso.

Um, you DO know that there was an entirely English audio track on Squid Games, right? It was amazingly well done. I was captivated.

EDIT: read the damn link, Drew.

I get it now. You're saying that the translation missed several subtle points that provided greater depth to the story. Thanks!!

Anna is all in for it, and she loved that FNL series, so I'll have to get her take on it.

For me and my watching, the problem I have is there's just too much for me to reasonably manage. I have, seriously, rolling upon rolling piles of things to watch.

So it goes.

Can't do it and believe me I've tried. Ever since Raymond Burr and his boisterous ass went full weird in '56 I just can't.

I've heard much, much worse. There was a Finnish murder mystery (that I never finished) that just hurt to watch with its dub. The one in Squid Game was almost matched to the lip movement somehow.

I always opt for subtitles so I can hear the movie in its original form/dialogue…even if I can’t understand what’s being said.

A few years back I got on a huge South Korean crime/mystery kick via Netflix and saw some great movies - Oldboy, the vengeance trilogy and about 15-20 other South Korean cops/killers/gangsters movies.

I loved hearing the original Korean acting while reading along. I’d actually watch each movie twice…the first time with no subtitles and just figure out what was going on from the visuals, facial expressions, vocal inflections, etc. Then I’d “reward” myself by rewatching with subtitles on and was always surprised by how close I was in my guesses/assumptions.

“Ahh…he did think that guy screwed him over, so that’s why he went to that house and…” and so forth.

I won’t watch anything with English dubbing…something gets lost. So I’ll sit and watch Swedish and South Korean mysteries and crime thrillers in their original language, only using subtitles if I think it’ll help me.
