It is a delightful nightmare.

Can they combine this with Tiger King?

I watched half of the first episode. That was more than I can say of Tiger King.

I saw the original Battle Royale. I'm not interested in any of the remakes.

Is it in subtitles or is it dubbed?
 
2021-10-27 9:16:36 AM  
I started watching it. It was ok, but I've been getting really bored of the whole "let's have a bunch of people die trying to win money to pay off their crushing debts" concept in film and television.

It's kind of this for me.

It's just interestinf enough I'll sit down and watch an episode while I wait for my gf to get off work but I'm not hard up for another episode.

There is some drop dead hilarious shiat in it like the old man just gleefully running along enjoying the massacre around him.

I'll probably finish it in a week or so. I just finished the marble game the other day.

It's in whatever you want, courtesy Netflix.  The English was a bit off to me.  I don't mind subtitles.

I'm not watching, so I'm one of those 6 people. I've heard mixed reviews and I don't base my opinion on reviews but I think it's something I wouldn't enjoy anyway. Not my cup of soup, so to say.


But I did hear recently that they can't make enough of those track suits for Halloween costumes. So be prepared to see a few this season at adult Halloween parties.

As one of the six, nah - I'm good, thanks.

Subtitles with the native language > dubbed.

Dubbing never conveys the true emotional weight of the speech and subtitles, while oft neutered translating East Asia languages, aren't hard to get over.

I watched a bunch of YouTubers play a game of Roblox modded to recreate the challenges in Squid Game.  Does that count, or do I still need the animation?

It popped up so close to Halloween that I don't think retailers could get product moving quick enough, especially with the supply chain problems.

I am waiting on a Halloween costume of one of the Squid Game guards that "should" be here any day now. Given I was desperate enough to try Etsy to get it, it could very well be in China, despite claiming to be a US seller/shipper.

There were several voice actors that said they were given lines with no context or scene info and just tried.

It's obvious in some places from what I'm told as the weight of some of the conversations is killed from lack of emotion and Google translate.

We are on an infants schedule and have limited viewing capacity in the evening. Murder shows are a hard pass right now. Baking and pottery competition is the light, half-pay-attention we can muster right now.

Looking forward to Cowboy Bebop and the final season of The Expanse... and sleep.

I bought a costume for my daughter from China once. It arrived just in time for Halloween - A Year Later.

It'll be like Breaking Bad was for me.  I started watching one of those nights where there was nothing on good enough to even leave muted in the background.  Although to be fair that's also probably how I started watching Pawn Stars.

I think I've seen it mentioned on FB a couple times but I have no idea what it is.

I feel like Justin Timberlake playing Sean Parker in The Social Network where he's like "What the hell is the chicken story?"

Watched about two minutes of it and decided that was about a minute-forty five too long for me.

I'm full up on senseless death from real life, I really have no interest in watching anything focused on murder and death anymore. So yeah, I'm going to pass on the umpteenth rehash of the deadly game trope.

i haven't been diagnosed with any hearing loss- i'm sorry you have!  but i love captioning, use it always on every show, and feel a little lost without it.  and yeah, when it's not a perfect match, super weird.

I have not tasted another person's blood in too long.  I bite my tongue just to feel the warm blood leak from my mouth while I'm attending classes.  They won't tell me why I've been held back AGAIN.  But I'm getting really tired of preschool.

I watched the first episode with my wife. She's not much for violent shows. In my defense, I warned her that it was described as "brutal" but somehow I still got her to sit down and watch with me. Then they showed the graphic slaughter of most of the contestants in the first event. She's done. I'll probably watch more eventually.

I can put up with violence (Absolutely loved Invincible), but I don't like it when the overarching mood of a show is cruelty, despair, and tension. It's simply not enjoyable for me. Other people love that stuff, and more power to them - but I simply am not interested in someone else's vision of a blood soaked hopeless dystopia.

its an ok show. i watched it all the way through. I thought the dialog they wrote for the fat cats was really clunky. too much of a stereotype of a stereotype.

The popular thing is often the watered-down, dumbed-down version of the original thing in a shinier wrapper.

I have watched it a few episodes and the above holds true in this case.
 
2021-10-27 10:23:56 AM  
I binged it over a week (dubbed, with subtitles). I know that I lost a lot of the context in the Americization of the dialog, but even so, there were some truly emotional moments to be had. The marble game in particular had a couple gut-punches in it.

Unfortunately, I saw the main twist coming pretty much from the start, but it didn't affect my enjoyment of the show. I'm hoping that there is a second series, and was very pleased to read that the show's creator is entertaining the possibility.
 
2021-10-27 10:24:14 AM  
I want to know more about the guards.  The little we're shown seems like they're in even more spartan living conditions than the contestants, and are utterly disposable.

What's their motivation?  How are they recruited -- is it those red envelopes?  How are they paid?  What do they do between Games?

How about the facet where cool and edgy contrarian has nothing to do with not fitting some random thing into my time?  I've learned more about the Octopus Competition/Squid Game from this thread than I knew from anything previous.

When you take a bite of shiat and then spit it out because it tastes like shiat, you don't usually need a second bite to confirm that you are, in fact, eating shiat.

Unless you're just that weird, but hey, no judgement here.
