    the rain on netflix is worth a watch if u like dystopian what if films.

    and not subtitled which was a pleasant plus.

    It's in English?

    Dubbed in English. I gave up on The Rain after 4 or 5 episodes. I didn't care about the characters and, this may sound ridiculous, but I prefer my dystopian tales to have an element of reality. Characters doing really stupid things for illogical reasons really annoys me! There was also too much implausible stuff in it.

    Ozark is excellent, really enjoyed it. Looking forward to season 2!

    Brilliant series.

    You can choose whether to watch subtitled or not.

    We rewatched a couple of episodes with subtitles and the Danish voices were very similar to the dubbed voices which is probably why the dubbed version worked well

    Very much a similar viewer to ozark.

    Season 2 dropped today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Janet McTeer is a great addition to the cast.

    For anyone who has watched a few episodes of Season 2, How is it so far? Just as good as Season 1 or has the quality dropped?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ Thomathetank


    I'm only on ep 2

    It's not too bad but feels a bit drawn out

    The white collar family mixing it with the Mexicans and the hillbillies don't quite convince me.

    Mexicans and politics and burying bodies ,it's all borrowed from other shows the same as music.i guess.

    The actress who plays Ruth Langmore was in the Americans

    She is really dull and wooden as an actress imo

    Completed S2. Watchable but by no means great or memorable.

    What irritated me most is that there are literally NO surprises here pretty much throughout. Whatever way they have filmed it every time a character is about to get whacked you know it's coming 10 minutes in advance...even though it's clearly intended to be a shock. Very clumsy.

    Also feels like you have seen it all before. Nothing new or original here. There are some funny quips but it's just boring.

    Biggest indictment for me of the whole series is the fact I did not remember a thing from S1 prior to starting S2 and had to go through a big recap in advance.

    The whole thing is easily forgettable.

    Thanks for the opinion. So many great shows out there these days I shall give this a miss. Season 1 was mildly entertaining, but find Bateman a difficult watch at times.

    I'm not sayin don't try it. I mean it's watchable and mildly entertaining to me.

    With this you'll know 2 or 3 episodes in whether to stick it out or not.

    It's worth seeing the first couple of episodes and making your mind up IMO.

    I liked it. Watched 4 episodes so far.

    Not as fast moving as S1, or as gripping but good enough.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 29,935 ✭✭✭✭ TerrorFirmer


    I'm only 2 episodes in but so far liking it just as much as S1 - not particularly brilliant but compelling enough to keep watching and enjoying.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13 ✭✭✭ Mistrryman


    It's decent but routine

    You get that deja vu feeling with everything here

    I've just finished season 2 and really enjoyed it. Laura Linney and Julia Garner are acting their bollox off. All the cast are good but those two are eating it up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,649 ✭✭✭ Lisha


    I loved series2. I found it very entertaining and it left me wanting more. Was it perfect, hell no but well worth watching


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,379 ✭✭✭ CeilingFly


    Season 2 certainly got better by the episode.

    I'm at ep9, so final episode for tomorrow.

    Always liked Ruth's character and can see her becoming the focus of season 3 assuming there is one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,402 ✭✭✭✭ Mushy


    One episode to go in S2. Darlene is a tough ****er, great character, really strong performance. Ruth and Wendy too, but different level with Darlene.

    Very good series overall

    finished season 2 loved it , thought it was better than season 1


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 29,935 ✭✭✭✭ TerrorFirmer


    Great season. If you liked the first one, this is genuinely an improvement, better paced with more action and threads. To be honest, Ozark got a lot of unfair Breaking Bad comparisons....but keeping in mind that BB wasn't really essential TV until the later seasons - and people tend to judge it based on what it became, not what it started out as - this is fast shaping up to be the best replacement you could hope for.
