Yea, the acting isn't brilliant but I thought the story line was great.
I'm up to episode 6. Very enjoyable but the English accent of Butcher is probably worse than **** Van Dyke.
Just finished the Dark Crystal prequel series on Netflix.
Wasn't expecting much, but it was outstanding. The people making it really, really love the IP and it shows.
It has a surprisingly dark, graphically nasty plot for a family show.
We're up to episode 3 and I'm waiting for a stormy day so that my son and I can binge it - it looks like they've really gone to town on the complex 'grown-up' plot and the puppets are amazing.
TBTH I'm not surprised that I like it as the original film is one of my all time favourites.
Not sure how old your boy is, but the series has some pretty brutal scenes all things considered. I'd say caution strongly advised for the smaller ones.
As long as it's only f**cking Geflings getting tortured to death...
Anyone else watching Top Boy? Enjoyed the first two seasons a few years back for their gritty realism but there were a little bit limited.
Just watching the reboot on Netflix and it's been turbo charged, much slicker. Dialogue is second to none, really puts into perspective how dreadful things like Line of Duty are when they try to write how young people actually speak.
Just started "How to Get Away with Murder" with the 13 yr old. Only two episodes in but so far so good.
Yet another thing they should be learning in school
I think your kids are younger than mine so feel free to follow my model parenting example..
Joking aside, the 13 year old and I also watched the Jesy Nelson documentary together and I do genuinely think they should show that in schools.
