The Walking Dead : Black Earth Rising

Black Earth Rising

So far, brilliant. Can't believe Netflix is offering up such good stuff.

Re: Black Earth Rising

If this is another terrible recommendation I’m done with you! Btw the German Netflix show Dark is very good, at least stylistically. I’m 5 episodes in and wish the plot and characterisation were a bit stronger. It’s a beautiful production though - looks incredible in ultra HD/4K. The opening credits sets the tone well:



ITTY, ‘Huh? I’m not gay.’

Re: Black Earth Rising

I'll have a go at Dark. Black earth started well but went down the tubes by episode 4, so I'm withdrawing my recommendation. But Sex Edn was really good, despite a weakish start.

Re: Black Earth Rising

Dark was awesome.

Re: Black Earth Rising

Agreed. It creeped the hell outta me. Very good and, er, dark.

Re: Black Earth Rising

Just started Dark. Very gripping. Like a darker, smarter, Stephen King.

Re: Black Earth Rising

You have good taste, Penny. Parts of Dark channel Lost hard.

If you haven’t seen Les Revenants do so. It’s similar but better.

Re: Black Earth Rising

I am recommending 'You' on Netflix. The 'hero' is both charming and off-the-scale creepy, which is quite a trick.

Re: Black Earth Rising

I watched a bit of it but it was too creepy (in a bad way) to watch for long.

Re: Black Earth Rising

Yeah, I almost quit too, but it was worth it,

Less horrible than that show Dexter, which was supposed to make me root for the 'good' serial killer against the 'bad' serial killers.

Re: Black Earth Rising

Honestly, I don’t think the show is very good at all. It’s highly watchable but it’s like a chick flick hybrid of American Psycho and Dexter.

Just seemed extremely derivative and basic to me.

5/10

Re: Black Earth Rising

Maybe all that's true, but it was still so bingeworthy.
