    I think it’s time to realign the star ratings. The way you review films does not seem to line up to your ratings. Everything skews high

  • colin the dude

    Sean asked Frank to rank the Judd Apatow films and Frank proclaimed you have to drop tier to see it. Can we call all future Frank rankings: Frankings?

  • pcch7

    FINALLY Sean is watching Dark. Great show.

  • pcch7

    Happy birthday Frankie ????

    Anyone else diggin Alex Rider? Its like if Christopher Nolan produced a kingsman tv series. Surprisingly good, looks great and a decent script. And Sean I think your mixing Perry mason up with ironside, both played by Raymond bur back in the day, I may be wrong. Great show as always guys.

  • Sean

    I haven’t heard anything about this Alex Rider series. I don’t even think it’s out in North America.

    As for Perry Mason, I think what I was saying is that since they decided to make him a gritty, hard-drinking film noir protagonist, Matthew Rhys didn’t totally seem to fit. But that is not what the original Perry Mason really was either as far as I recall.

  • Season 3 today! Wife is making Toast Hawaii and German potato salad we evn got Raider bars for dessert.

    If this show were in English, EVERYONE would be talking about it.

  • pcch7

    I’m currently away doing a skydiving course but I’ll start season 3 when I get home tonight. Yeah it’d be huge if it was an English language show for sure. The dude who looks a bit like Norman Reedus would be pretty popular I think

  • I just finished the series. It’s certainly not my favorite show of all time, but it’s arguably the best. Or at least top three. This is how you handle a series finale Game of Thrones and LOST.

    So fucking good. Can’t wait to go back and rewatch it all over again.

    Well deserved win for Dark. I’m gonna try to get through most of the season today. I wish I had rewatched 1 & 2 before just to refresh my memory, but I’m back in it now. Very curious to see how they wrap this up

    Amazing little tidbit after the outro, it made the episode!
