I thought Midnight Mass (Limited Series on Netflix) was really good for never hearing about it yet. I’d give it an 8.5/10.

I thought it was good too. I guess that director has made some good stuff.

The episode where they all paired up for a game was incredible in terms of seeing how all the different characters responded. Brilliant shit.

Also, has anyone else seen this theory? I'm completely on board:

The old man is actually Gi-Hun's father. https://screenrant.com/squid-game-old-man-il-nam-gi-hun-dad/
yes the marble episode will be one that sticks with me. Similar to San Junipero in black mirror.

that had crossed my mind as well, but would be interesting to see how that would play out in the second season

What was so surprising about the show is that it initially was the premise that got me hooked, but then the characters themselves became much more interesting. Just really well done.

Even though that English voiceover acting was fucking horrible, agree squid game was good as well.

I just hope there is a 2nd season...there is so much potential with this show
Don't hold your breath on it. Director has basically said he wanted to do some movies before thinking about a season 2.

He probably also didn’t expect the show to blow up the way it has. Money talks and Netflix will be throwing down some cash to bring the show back I’m sure.

He could also hand it off. They definitely set it up to continue and I'd watch another season but with a lot of these TV shows that feel like limited series, I wish they'd just leave it be instead of milking it.

Also I switched to sub after maybe a minute of dub, but there's a lot of debate over how well they handled the translation anyway...

Flanagan is quite good, and while I think I preferred Hill House, Midnight Mass was another great series. I like that he focuses on the story/drama and lets the horror elements lift that up. His shows usually end with less scares than they start with but still a good watch.

If you haven't seen it already, Gerald's Game is a movie of his on Netflix that is quite good.

I watched with subs but there are a few characters who are native English speakers and the actors are horrendous.
