I agree that there is less overall so when I see established shows doing it (when they didn't start that way) it's more disappointing.

I am not a woke warrior - I have no issue with an all white cast. I welcome the diversity we have now but when it's some of these moves including diversity for diversity sake it just rubs me wrong.

FBI International started with two white agents and two agents of colour. The black guy Raines was the younger agent emerging under the guidance of the lead agent - no issue whatsoever with this.

The end of last season they introduce the white bad boy type agent and at the start of this season they hobble Raines on what I expect is to now play up this new character with scenes that would've gone to the Raines character in the past.

I just turned it off and don't plan to watch anymore. I have seen enough of that stereotype over the decades. There is much more stuff to watch.

Yeah, you're right, I remember all those old slashers where a group of students ends up in the woods, guess who disappears first - the black guy. It always pissed me off.

But in this case, it could be for a different reason. At least, I'd like to believe so. In a lot of shows I remember, they sometimes switch up characters.

Tokyo Vice is pretty good but don't really like the white avatars the show uses - that is so last century, geez.
That said they did well to take the show more off the beaten path in some instances and like they didn't let Snow White and Prince Charming MarySue the entire show.

Rant Off

Now will start True Detective and hope Shogun minimizes the Gaijin angle.
Two of them were overkill especially Samantha character given how good Japanese actors. What a great crew Watanabe, sato,Tozawa, obayan

Some of them look like paintign esp Tozawa’s second in command and Miyamoto

The Mire (Polish) released their 3rd season on Netflix. That post/during Soviet background is so fabulous

RIP

Loved DB as a child, I even bought some comics

Sad to read from Wikipedia that he got tired of his own creation... nothing last forever :(

Now I started watching the whole series of Dr. Slump

japanese littlefinger:proud:
Little finger is way smarter but Yabushige is more cultured a man who learns calligraphy to write his will every morning is something else.

This fucking show shows a glimpse of how wound up Japan was before it went full insane in 1900s.

So .... 3 Body Problem - thoughts?

Not sure it's living up to the hype - found it very average and less enjoyable than some middle of the road series that have come down the line the last few years.

This show is so good

I love how him and Toranaga discuss the tactics openly understanding that each must do what they have to

Toranaga actor is so good I can’t get bored by a character who is essentially a God.

Meanwhile yabushige’s fault was boiling wrong English man. That actor’s output in 3 minutes are insane.

He is essence of Amor Fati.


Would definitely watch a yabu series.

Tokyo Vice second season is done. Yeah two American characters are underwhelming.

Show couldve been legit awesome as a one season series editing out either of them and streamlining their personal story tangents - nobody cares about his family drama or her missing friend

My god shogun this is apparently a Japanese epic but essentially it’s 6-7 wonderful actors plying the their trade at very very high level.

Wisting season 1 was good. 2 and 3 are bad.

Main actor is build like a shit brickhouse.



Scandinavia is great for serial killer movies

Replacing him and Mariko need to be priority 1. Find two awesome actors, then you can worry about the script.
Season 1 was basically Mariko, I had enough after 5 episodes. Very high level acting.

Haven't finished the first episode yet but it seems to have run out steam and just spinning on ways to piss off more people.

Will try to finish of the first three and see if I am willing to continue but I thought the spinoff was already more interesting.
