Well, thoroughly enjoyed Stranger Things and this episode of The Boys. Had a right little feast of entertainment yesterday.
I thought he was only in this season as a nod to the Elm Street aspect of the plot. Did he show up on earlier seasons?
I love Barry. There's a brilliant chase scene in the latest season, something I didn't think I'd ever see on this show. Superb stuff.Barry has always been a black comedy, but I don't remember it being as funny before this season. Eight 30 minute episodes goes by in a blink, but I'm enjoying it.
Hey, thanks for mentioning this one. I had no idea Michael Douglas was still working. Looks like the sort of thoughtful drama/comedy that will serve as a nice counterpoint to my usual fare. Had a look at the trailer on Netflix, added to my watchlist.I'm halfway through S2 of Kominsky Method, and I finally got some episodes where I really laughed my ass off. It's quite funny sometimes, other times it's thoughtful on the state of growing old. It's a nice slow ride.
I'm just curious - do American folks detect the foreign interlopers in shows like Stranger Things and The Boys? You've got Eleven, One, and Eddie in Stranger Things who are Brits. Then in The Boys you've got Homelander and Butcher who are Kiwis, Maeve who's Irish, and so on.
I'm wondering if they play Americans well enough to be transparent.
Can't speak for every American, but I'm well used to it. Non American actors play a ton of American roles and have for a while. I stopped being surprised after The Wire, if not earlier. That show was full of Brits. I often can't tell just from listening to them speak, but then again I don't often live in the setting of the shows (Baltimore in my example).
Yeah, I was wondering if they ring false when they speak. When actors try to play Brits, some of them can do it, but quite often they stick out. I was thinking that one factor might be that most folks are so steeped in American TV and cinema, they find it quite easy to slip into that mode convincingly.
