    A really pretty slick Netflix offering. It’s in Russian but subtitles aren’t even visible to me after 10 minutes.

    The theme is anti robot terrorism and a killer bot on the loose.

    Watched the entire season. Get past the lip sync acting, which was pretty good actually. I though it was excellent. This from a sci fi series binge watcher.

    Easily IMO as good as the Travelers, Continuum, Dark Matter, etc.

    Also watched latest season of 'The 100', which to say 'new' is a stretch. Kinda like watching repeats as the writers rephrase previous season/episode/loops etc. Still watched though. ;}


    Also: They must have picked the most gorgeous gals in all of Russia actor wise, Damn!

    I was joking with my wife, being it is a female killer robot which I thought looks like Taylor Swift, I should stop dissing her dumb ars. ';) But I won't...

    I watched another Netflix show caller The Sniffer, same guy as the main 'Dad' character Stafano ? [Kirill Karo] in Better than us. Subtitles, and pretty silly, but somehow it is catching my interest thus far...

    I’ve been watching it, and it has been surprisingly entertaining, despite the dubbing. Plot is keeping my interest, but it’s definitely low-budget, and the dialog is bad bordering on silly at times, but again, the plot is unique and interesting.
    Not at the production level of Travelers or Continuum.

    I think maybe, at least it seemed to me, this is more translation. Colloquialism misalignment of language to language perhaps...

    One of my favorites, possibly from a Godzilla movie, but I think it may have been a Gamera movie:

    "Come quick, the pod (or flower, or something) is opening!"
    "What color is it?"
    "Who cares? We're going to blow it up!"

    Yeah, I’m sure that’s some of it, and also the flat inflection of tone as spoken by the overdub actors.

    Not nearly as stupidly funny as Kung Pow, Enter the Fist though...
