    I haven't. I didn't find it hard to pick up.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I have been watching GOGOL on Prime.
    It's a Russian series that mixes vintage Sherlock Holmes with Edgar Allen Poe; it's a slick, gothic delight.
    FWIW, cursory digging on the Webz revealed that the titular character is a fictional representation of one Nikolai Gogol, who was, more or less, Russia's answer to Poe...

    Apparently, the season they have on Prime is the first in a 3-season collection, all of which were initially shown in theaters in Russia (and were very popular).

    I dove into the first episode of this last night.
    A strange mixture of spy thriller, alternative history, and sci-fi/comic book pulp adventure.

    Watched the 1st episode and 1/2 and can't tell if I like it yet. The premise sounds great and the interview I heard with the writer had me excited but it's kind of slow so far and the mash-up of styles makes it feel kind of off balance sometimes. Although to be fair I was tired and nodding off during the second episode.

    Curious about this - how is it? I've watched a few Russian TV shows (wifey is a ruski) and generally, they're good but they often suffer from mediocre acting and low-ish SFX budgets. Good writing though.

    In that vein, I would recommend 'Better than Us' on Netflix, a dystopian Russian drama about a world where human-like robots are changing the workforce and social landscape of the world. Really, pretty well done.

    feeling the same way, is the pay off worth all this tedium?

    I personally dug the genre mash-ups in HUNTERS.
    The only episode that I felt was weak was Ep. 8.
    9 & 10 cooked and I felt the ending of Season 1/set-up for Season 2 was bravura nuttso cool.

    Iron Sky; Danger 5; Man in the High Castle; The Boys From Brazil; Inglourious Bastards...

    I liked it too. It will be interesting to see where it goes in the next season without one of the main characters from this season.

    I mentioned it earlier while it was still putting out weekly episodes, McMillions is really good. Relatively straightforward fraud but there’s some interesting characters on both sides.

    The book itís based on goes far beyond this first season; Iím curious to see how they make the next season work. If they stick to the book, itís gonna be dark as fuck.
    Just started the book. Having as much trouble getting into it as I did the series...It has taken me 2 days to read 60 pages!

    Peaky Blinders, Stranger Things, Sex Education, Riverdale are pretty good. I don't really watch a lot of series, because it's grabbing and after spending the whole day in front of the TV I just starting to blame myself that I've wasted my time.

    I enjoyed it. But you more or less nailed some of the aspects on the head in regards to lower-end FX. I found the acting decent and the story engaging, albeit a bit predictable.
    It is like Edgar Allen Poe if he were an X-Files agent.
    I am down for Seasons 2 and 3 if they ever make it to Prime.

    Hightown (Starz) anyone? Lotsa variable sex, thicc NE coast accents, could use some more violence ......
    RT critics consider it moderately good but audience not so much - assume NE coasters are pissed at being shown as such jerks??
