What are you watching right now?

Squid Games!
Man the first 30 minutes of episode 1 were so cheesy and bad English dubbed over Korean. But powered through and now hooked. Red light green light was a fun kids game. Not so sure now.

It reminded me of the few times I went on splits with the Vietnamese speaking elders and they would get invited to eat lunch and watch movies.

Learned to love the food.

Watched episode 1 of the Squid Games. My daughter insisted we watch in Korean to avoid cartoonish dubbing. Thank goodness I can still easily read the subtitles.

Not sure if the other 8 episodes become less cartoonish or you just get used to it. We watched the whole show now and weren’t distracted by it. The English subtitles didn’t exactly match with the English dub over so we turned them off.

Great show although a bit odd at the end.

It is hard for really good and innovative programs to be appreciated, otherwise, the show Penny Dreadful: City of Angels would have been a bigger hit. Historical fantasy programs need to be made by the BBC. BTW, waiting for season 3 of His Dark Materials. It will be broadcast on HBO.

We finished episode 3 of the Squid Games.

I've been watching Midsomer Murders from the beginning, starting in March of 1997. I am now up to season 9. All episodes can be found on YouTube free of charge.

If you are an older person, forget The Bachelorette and tune in to Midsomer Murders!
