I find it incredulously stupid, yet oddly compelling.
I was thinking the exact same thing watching it last night, albeit not so eloquently! :D

The premise is ridiculous, but the characters are pretty good so far, and I like Jennifer Connelly so there is that. Looked it up, and you're right; made by TNT.

We've enjoyed first season of The Boys too, funny to hear it's actually toned down from the comics.

Anyone else watching "Into the Night" on Netflix? I'm finding it very good! FYI, foreign language with decent English overdub. Anyway, I'm several episodes in. I'd recommend it at this point.

And I am looking forward to checking out Space Force on Netflix tomorrow. Looks pretty funny from the trailer 😁

I dislike dubbing and will take sub titles any day!
I don't mind the dubbing if the acting is decent. A lot of the stuff I am watching these days is on my phone, after the family has settled for bed, so reading subtitles on the phone sized screen isn't my preferred option.

I generally prefer subs. There's the odd anime where with a really good dub, it's still fine since you don't notice the mismatch between mouth movement and the sound of English speech like you do with live action.

Once you start picking up another language you definitely notice how 'generous' some subs and dubs can be with translations too. I notice it in some French and Japanese media where the translation can be pretty different from what's actually being said (though usually you're still getting the jist of it). I've noticed it a little in Spanish media too, but I don't know enough Spanish to really judge how much is due to idiom and slang that doesn't transfer over versus creative changes.

I am the only one here who watched Space Force? :eek:
Nope. Watched it. Just finished the other night. Certainly had some funny moments :) Steve Carell and John Malkovich is a great combo!

The show is certainly a platform for any number of politic and moral stances, to each their own on those, but it did make me laugh!
