I thought it was brilliant too. I was getting a little bored watching the same Christmas movies each year and this was definitely a breath of fresh air. Kurt Russell is fantastic as Santa!

Just finished watching Bandersnatch. It was a proper 'pick your own adventure' and it was a train ride - literally. I'll spoil what I saw so as to not affect other's choices.



Very enjoyable and I'm wondering what other bits I might have missed.

I loved it, got the same ending as above first and then worked through all the others. Brilliant concept.

Have you found the website?

DC titans is on netflix, seems to be all episodes, it could be trash

I see Disney is making a load of marvel tv series for its upcoming service, like Loki one and one with Vision and Scarlet witch

Titans is like a more-violent Gotham. More of an Else-worlds series. I enjoy it for what it is.

Enjoying Sex education on Netflix. Although the set in England but have an American high school, seemingly set in the 80s but they have mobiles Is a strange concept.

I guess they were after some kind of John Hughes fantasy world.

Watched the first two episodes of Titans & enjoying it so far. Better than all the current CW DC shows. Certainly dialled up the violence & potty-mouth dialogue to new DC extremes. Only the subpar acting is letting things down a little. The girl playing Raven is probably the best of a bad bunch...

I was reading about that today, it also mashes a British school with american style lockers, jackets and American football. The creators were going for a John Hughes style they said and it meant that Americans wouldn't notice it being overtly British in style.

I watched the first episode last night. Can't say I was that impressed, it really seems like they've made all the creative choices entirely based on what their viewing analysis algorithm told them to do.

The mix of a US style high school with all its standard tropes but being set in Britain is just weird. The tone is all over the place as well, sometimes feeling like a sex comedy romp and then sometimes like a CBBC show. The acting also reeked of that 'fresh from drama school' style so many young British actors have.

To be honest it's the first time I've felt really worried about how Netflix make their creative choices and what the future holds. Before it seemed liked they just let talented people get on with it but this really does feel like it was designed by a machine.
