Looks funny. Hopefully they will go into the “idiot line”, where the character explains to the audience what they experienced two scenes ago.

The Walrus Recommends… Squid Game

I’m beginning to really love Korean series and cinema, and Squid Game just reinforces my love for all things Korean.

Yes, this series takes the familiar troupe that through flashbacks, we learn more about the characters, and yes, that seems familiar. Where this series differs is that it takes everything, and turns it up to 11.

The stakes are higher, the drama is higher and the acting is superb.

The series starts with our main character, a down-and-out divorced dad living with his mom, deeply in debt to loan sharks. He’s a moron, steals from his mom, and relegated to eating ramen on the floor in his kitchen. But we still root for him to succeed, because he seems like such a great guy.

He gets sucked into an underground game where he realizes very quickly that the stakes are much higher than he expected… those being LIFE and DEATH.

Squid Game is an immersive series that you will find hard NOT to binge. It delves deep into classism, and what people will do for money, even with your life on the line. The series has a slight twist ending, and a perfectly set-up for season two. And with the series surging on Netflix, a season two is all but assured.

English artist Louis Wain rises to prominence at the end of the 19th century for his surreal cat paintings.

The Way Down: God, Greed and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin | Official Trailer | HBO Max

Stream The Way Down: God, Greed and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin on September 30 on HBO

After rising to fame with her Weigh Down Workshop, a Christian-based diet program that preached slenderness as next to godliness, Gwen Shamblin Lara founded the Tennessee-based church. Despite a carefully curated image, Lara and the church soon fielded accusations of emotional, psychological, and physical abuse, and exploitation for their alleged cult-like practices. Encompassing years of investigation and extensive interviews with former members and others personally impacted, Directed by Emmy®-Award winning biographical filmmaker Marina Zenovich, THE WAY DOWN explores the legacy of Remnant’s infamous leader – whose life came to a shocking end after a plane crash in May 2021.

I love a good documentary, especially ones about religion, cults and FAT PEOPLE.

Muppets Haunted Mansion | Official Trailer | Disney+

Prepare to scream… and stream! #MuppetsHauntedMansion, an Original Special, makes its spook-tacular entrance October 8 on #DisneyPlus. #Hallowstream

This looks O.K. Looks like it leans on the HAUNTED MANSION ride a bit too much. I love it when the Muppets joke with a side eye about current events, and it does not look like that happens here.
