Lol.

I'm not @neph93 but I think every Kubrick film is style over development. Wrong thread perhaps.  :D

@neph93 examples, Please! Which shows do you feel hit your optimum watch criteria?

I think Mad Men is a perfect example of ticking all the boxes. The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 is a more recent example. It was both cinematic and literary, and had a slow build narrative to a stunning conclusion. The last episode is some of the most visually arresting and gripping television I’ve ever seen.

Pertinent to the discussion though.


I do love some Kubrick. It’s always going to work better in film than on TV where narrative will always be king.

SUCCESSION. HBO show about a family-run media conglomerate and its mainly family related events... My description doesn't do it justice... Give it a view if you can and decide for yourself (but give it three episodes)...

Finally finished the first half of Breaking Bad season 5 and it was excellent. I love how Jesse Pinkman starts off the series as a loser with a drug addiction to being the moral backbone of the show. And of course I’m not surprised by Walt’s downward spiral into becoming the kingpin of his own meth empire. I’m really curious about the El Camino movie now

First episode of Watchmen done last night. Promising. Just as unsettling and brutal as the book and very interesting to see what they are doing with the source material.

I loved the book!  Even though most didn't care for the movie, I thought it did a pretty damn great job, especially in casting and set design.

Did the show just launch?

It did just launch, in Norway at least. On HBO here.

The film had a lot going for it including the aspects you mention. One problem for me was that while it looked great and had some wonderful detail from the book, it was lacking in the atmosphere. Not enough existential dread. That would have been one thing but when they then changed the ending (no spoilers) in the way they did it became too sterile for me.

No way that is going to happen with the tv show. It literally rained alien squid in the first episode ;)
