    Anyone else watching this show? I’d be keen to know what your thoughts are. I think Annie Murphy is brilliant in it.

    As others will point out, watch it in the original language with subs. Otherwise it might as well be me and my mates telling you a story set to video. The only films you should watched dubbed are old school kung fu movies from the 70s. Since the acting and stories are so poor, the dubbing actually increases the viewing pleasure.

    Audio is at least and often more important than the images, and with dubbing you only getting half the acting. as the dubbers are never going to be able to convey the same emotion in the same way, or the same intonations and nuances.

    Enjoy the show.

    I might switch now my wife has given up on it (bit too gruesome for her) I'll start watching from the beginning, had a few mates say the same.

    I never watch anything with dubbing, never looks or sounds right at all. Always watch with original language and subs. Much better.

    Came downstairs to see my wife watching Squid Game the other night (had already watched it solo) and also with subtitles. Quite a surprise as she struggles with subs as English is her second language.

    No excuse for her not to watch Gomorrah with me now (it initally had no dubbing and then HBO did a horrific dub) :D

    Rather late but watching Narcos:Mexico.

    Watched the original Narcos series a while back, Mexico continues the same high quality. I very much like that the narration and actors are carried over from Narcos.

    Finished the first series of Mexico, and now onto the second, which I presume will be the final. The lead actor (Diego Luna) from Rogue One (one of the best Star Wars films of recent times) and in Narcos, is very good. Recommended if you have never watched.

    Watched all three seasons of Britannia - wow we were both pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it was.
    Finished the first season of Manhunt, Martin Clunes playing a pretty convincing character as the lead DCI. Another season to go.
    Finally watched Line of Duty season 6. Mistakenly we assumed that it was the final season, who knows for sure at this stage.?! Then again we didn't exactly follow the plot and I'm sure that for some it all made sense.
    Started watching Squid Games, saw the first episodes. We decided to go for the original Korean language and then read the subs. Seems interesting enough to continue...not much special at this stage.

    Finished Kim's Convenience this morning. I've really enjoyed it as an easy to watch, fun show. I would recommend to anyone.

    Finished Squid Game. It's very well written and stylish, but I felt let down by the ending. Also, ultimately, it's a psychological horror series and that's not really my bag.

    Just finished Season 2 of Cobra (Cyberwar) - much like the first season it was a bit unbelievable but a fun watch; seems setup for a Season 3 although not seen anything confirmed.
