Re: What Are You Watching - TV Edition
Have you ever been in a situation with a show where you wanna run around shouting "hey everyone! watch this, trust me, you'll love it!" but didn't know how? That's how I feel about this show.
Mainly I wanna avoid hype-backlash. It's like we're still afraid to admit that TV has gotten seriously fucking good in the past two decades, so everyone oversells everything. It just started its second season, and I have a feeling it'll build up a cult status, and then a lot of people will be saying "best show ever", and then backlash (exactly what happened with True Detective).
But man, this is a really enjoyable show. The lead performance is excellent. The show gets more confident with every episode, and they mix tension and humour really really well.
This show has every opportunity to fail, but by bob, everything keeps working and it just keeps getting better and better.
Here's the premise. Knowing the reveal (which is made explicit by the 3rd episode) absolutely does not alter your enjoyment of the show, but it would still be preferable to go in knowing nothing. So if you're not willing to give it a go on my word alone:
