Chestnut Man - Solid Scandi Noir
In today's series they went a bit too hardcore with the Robot and the Dr Smith characters, and to be honest, the cgi, sound and vfx are really the only reason I watch it. It's pretty thin on story/plot, visually watchable but not very satisfying lol
It’s really not my thing so I have no personal interest in watching it but for those that have watched Squid Game is it living up to the hype or is it massively overrated. Feedback from work colleagues is mixed.
in other words is it a Friends or Harry Potter which I’ve watched and wondered what all the fuss was about.
I feel there could've been more character/sub-plot development and there is a significant amount of having to suspend your disbelief (recruitment of handlers?) but it's worth a watch. It seems to be the first time the well developed traits of Korean dark cinema (mr/mrs. vengeance, old boy, president's last bang) have made it into a Korean TV drama (which are usually devoid of these elements).
