Finished season 1 of 'kingdom'.
What a fucking beast of a show.
What a way to end season one.
I love the characters, the drama and the unbelievable tension.
Along with 'train to Busan', I believe south Korea has crowned itself king of the zombie genre. Kudos.

Yeah, I was really surprised by it; I expected it to be good, because I enjoy just about anything but... damn, it's actually GOOD good.



I just started Wandavision, and let me tell you... I was not sober enough for that. My brain just got melted at the end of ep 1.

Bold. Stupid, but bold. Can they measure up to the quality of the original? That's one of the best pieces ever made.

It's with the original creators, I've heard.
I had my doubts when they said they'd make a live action series. But animated... That I can get behind.
The first Comics would already make for a fine season.

I hope to eventually see the azula redemption arc that the creators had envisioned, as well. Apparently they'd hoped to go beyond 3 seasons initially. Seemed weird to me, because it was a perfect arch in the initial story. But further seasons were scrapped after the shamalan disaster.

Oh yeah, that's good news... the original creators and anime medium.

Honestly, if they manage to keep the 'subtlety' and 'realism' do not treat the audience as stupid, they have a chance. But then that was 2005. If they try to make it fit into the new age norms, it is going to blow.

Best thing about those series is how they managed to illustrate concepts like failure, mistake, fear with head characters. It's too much for the new era tendencies, I think. It feels like they would make it 'softer', more 'positive', politically correct and polish it up. Oh godaw no. That's what I would worry about.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Well, fingers crossed.

Has anyone seen 'Behind Her Eyes'? It is making a lot of noise here and I'm curious if it is that good or just hype.

It's alright, but I don't consider it among Shyamalan's best work.  :cheesy:

I own the full set on DVD. I want to get the Legend of Korra now. Been years since I've seen it. Not as good as the original show, but it's still enjoyable. Funny how they had to sneak the little lesbian twist in last minute, because that was SO controversial back then. Nickelodeon was a bit late to the party.

It's alright, but I don't consider it among Shyamalan's best work.  :cheesy:

Be careful how you proceed, good man. Intemperate indeed good man.

Sweet Home.  Basically, the South Korean Walking Dead, albeit with a unique twist. 

The Famicom game?

No, but that inspired the Resident Evil series and it's extremely likely that the 1989 Sweet Home movie/game similarly inspired the Sweet Home webcomic (otherwise that name is an incredible coincidence)

The Sweet Home webcomic monsters are even superficially similar to the Resident Evil monsters - massively mutated humans with enhanced physical traits and rapid regeneration.  Resident Evil more or less sticks to the human experimentation/mutation angle, while Sweet Home takes it in a more supernatural direction.
