About 8 I think.

 

I didn't know I could listen to it not dubbed.  (I've only just discovered where the subtitle option is.)

 

I just had a look, under the menu for the show is ‘Audio and Subtitles’, I’ve got ‘English’ ticked under subtitles and ‘Japanese [Original]’ ticked under audio.

 

No kidding, you’ll be just amazed where they go with this. Such a wonderful show.

The end of the fucking world season 1 was pretty short and punchy, burned through it last week, thought it was decent.

We just finished s2 on All4.

Not as good as the amazing s1, but still decent.

End of evangelion is basically

Cheers. That will be an improvement.

Just watched Klaus and utterly shocked to say. Cracking Christmas film with a lovely 2d/3d style of animation. 

 

That's two Netflix movies in a row that are good now. This and Dolemite.

I've had this bloody Netflix service since April and I think I can count on one hand the number of things I've watched from start to finish...usually what happens is I'll fire up the app and then spend the next 30mins sitting there like a zombie scrolling through whats available, can't make my mind up, so turn it off...

 

I find Netflix's content a mile wide but an inch deep.

I watched 'Earthquake Bird’ this evening and quite enjoyed it, slow burner but loved the Japanese scenery and overall aesthetic, the characters were a little one dimensional however.

Scrolling around is definitely the fun bit. Until Better Call Saul.

I've always thought Netflix could do with a watch something random button. Possibly tailored to your likes, possibly not. You could even put in a feature that delays you switching the choice for around ten minutes so you really commit.

I think I preferred Netflix before it was mostly about pushing its own content;, although admittedly some of its own stuff has been brilliant.

My parents are in the UK. I kid you not, I check the UK netflix new arrivals EVERY week and have done for years. I cannot believe how bad it is, it honestly feels like I can only recommend about 2-3 films for them a year. I'm talking of ONLY films btw where they seem to only get films that are at least 3 or so years old or just awful. Canada netflix however, there is at least a handful of films every month that is relatively new and actually a well known good film even if it's not my cup of tea.

Capwn, there are loads of films on there from the last year or two (in fact there are 1500 titles from 2018/19 alone). The UK has the fourth largest library in the world and has for quite some time although the US and Canada are ahead significantly in their 1 & 2 spots.

 

The way Netflix organises them leaves something to be desired but that's where sites like newonnetflix come in handy.

 

Honestly, "There's nothing on UK Netflix" is a decision making failure rather than a paucity of choice although you could always teach your mum how to use a VPN I suppose.

I’m still on episode 24...I’m tempted to leave 25 & 26 for a Christmas treat.

 

Finished it last night. That's quite an ending.


There are two Evangelion films on Netflix.  The End Of... and Death (True).  Is there a correct order to watch these in, or should I avoid?  And what should I watch next?

End of Evangelion is the ‘real’ ending, made with a proper budget. 
 

Death (True) is a recap of the whole show in condensed form with some new interstitial scenes for cohesion. 
 

There are a few others too but basically as far as I recall everything after EoE is just reheated, recut and reused stuff from the show.

I’ve ordered both, I understand there is stuff fleshed out and nastier in Death & Rebirth, so I’m up for that - and I got the dvd for £1.50 on eBay.
