    Finally, something good to watch after a while.
    Brutal, bloody, conspiratorial, and beautiful.
    So much to enjoy for me personally. It fits right into my taste.
    I highly recommend this.

    By the way, there is brutality and nudity, so it's definitely not suitable for kids.
    For Brutality, You can refer to game of throne style imo. Though only 3 episodes are out for now. i watched them all. 1st episode set the tone directly.

    Have you by chance already see the series titled My Name? I thought it was pretty well made and the soundtrack was amazing too.

    A good 2 seasons, And a 3rd season is on the go. But yeah this one is watchable, enjoyable. But not as fun as Asur i recommended earlier. But still its a decent watch, in psychological thriller genre.
    Good for time pass. rarely you find it in indian cinema. So its a decent watch
    P.S: i finally finished last 2 ep as well. It has gone just above, being decent in my list now. But yeah can't match Asur at all still. That one just went too good with psychological thriller and you know dark gritty feeling, etc... type.

    I really enjoyed the whole series. And i liked that it was not just another random heroic bs lol. It was good for light comedy and also for a crime drama, which obviously took a good turn as mc stayed , lets say not heroic in nature.
    Good and enjoyable series.
    Now i am waiting for its next season.

    FI2RyFHVEAEw4bk.jpeg FcoFDRGWYAA1md7.jpg FaYPxc3XgAAO_6e.jpeg GDqCKAMWcAApKla.jpeg

    Willard R. Abbott Elementary School is a predominantly Black Philadelphia public school where a documentary crew is recording the lives of teachers working in underfunded, mismanaged schools. Conditions at the school are harsh and most teachers quit after their second year. Optimistic second-grade teacher Janine Teagues is determined to help her students despite the circumstances. She works with awkward, good-intentioned history teacher Jacob Hill; experienced, no-nonsense kindergarten teacher Barbara Howard; and experienced second-grade teacher Melissa Schemmenti, Barbara's close friend, who has questionable connections. They are joined by new school principal Ava Coleman, who is tone-deaf, unqualified, and uninvested, and recent substitute hire Gregory Eddie, who was rejected after applying for the position of principal.

    I have only 1 word to say after watching now, WOW. Yes lol. 1st part, tbh i do not remember it being a great watch personally, but i think it was ok, decent. But this part 2 was really good.
    It shocked me, and became my top movie of this yr or maybe even past yr, that i watched.
    -
    imo do not for spoiler, simply watch the movie blindly and you are in for a ride.
    Even if not your type, it definitely will be worth a watch at the very least
    -
    And i liked how mc managed to grow up into calm mature self by the end. I hope to see some ruthless part in next upcoming parts
    And same, i hope to see those space time manipulation type powers as well, that i just found out exist in this world ( i read some wiki on abilities of the characters in novel, most likely next or in later parts of movies. )

    Good movie. I enjoyed psychological Thriller aspect of it. If anyone is interested in watching i will say, do not check out spoiler.
    And try to use brain in many places, small hints will be given in many places. This movie can have many ending and whats the actual reality, no one knows. But to get this info you will need to notice the hints given in the movie.

    Overall enjoyable.

    There are many adaptation of this event in movies. I shared 2. You can search more and decide which one you wanna see, by checking their trailers and stuff.
    Its a good pscyhological movie. But can't say its great. The 1st one i watched, was ok for a watch. Overall enjoyable.

    If you enjoyed, LOST, then you will like this one as well. Its not same or similar, but has some similar vibe of mystery and how fate turns out. Tho this one is very funny, as aliens start fighting among themselves to save humans lmao ( when their 2.5billion aliens brothers are dying and they can save them, but still some will fight for humans and let those aliens die lmao. Its just a comedy series because of all teh stupidity it shows. )

    But yes overall a enjoyable one. Can be watched, start is good. Then skim in middle and ending ( as plot went haywire a bit, and will not seem too realistic due to stupid writing and plot ).
    So its a good popcorn tv series.

    Good tv series, i usually do not see fmc. Its rare for me. And lol this fmc is really bad character, the type i dislike basically. Too much of a simp and weak type. Its basically a copy of Sweet home Season 1 simp mc.
    in either case, overall a good tv series for some fun popcorn time.
    But that is it. Watch it by shutting your brain down ok.
    -
    I am not hyped for s02, but yeah i will definitely watch it.

    Extra info:
    This is not copy paste of anime or japan tv series. Koreans have adapted the core concept of parasyte existence and created a new plot with new character in new place, its a golbal attack by parasytes here. So its not weird, that they are in korea as well, as they are basically all over the world.
    And fmc will be weak, kind till the end, trust anyone, etc... type of character. Which is sad, as only reason i enjoyed anime, other than a new concept was cuz mc became ruthless and rational and stop being the simp guy, as that was brain dead and too childish even at that time for me, much less now, after so many years smh.

    Final thought, i do not recommend this tv series as a good one. But if you got nothing better to watch or you do not care about being rational/ruthless or simp, then you are ok to watch
