    I have been waiting for this for a long time ,i didn't even realize it was released last week until the other day
    i just binged watched 1-8 and it is Amazing
    and i generally hate literally everything that has come out on TV and movies for the last 10 years at least
    i think everything is complete shit ,but this really surprised me everything about it was unique and very well done

    so has anyone here watched it what did you think?
    i can't wait for season 2 , i mean they better make a season 2 if not i will be really disappointed since this is the 1st good thing to come out in a really long time

    also what is with NF ,i heard this was released end of August so is this what they do , just release all 10 episodes at once and not weekly?
    i find that really odd ,i think it kills the momentum , the suspense the buzz by doing it like that
    if they staggered the episodes people would be talking about it longer and it would create more hype

    I recall it being mentioned in passing but had completely forgotten about it prior to this.

    Always a curious one. There was a show that split the series in half despite all being made and went week by week and quite a few people got very upset for some reason. I am also not entirely sure about schedules and how it works vis a vis buzz. On the flip side several such services do week by week stuff (the CBS one has a few and some shows worth noting at least have come out of it).

    " and i generally hate literally everything that has come out on TV and movies for the last 10 years at least"
    While there has been some utter dross I think the last ten years of TV have been the culmination of a lot of good forces that started some time back. Long form properly budgeted shows rather than villain of the week + syndication two parters/cliffhangers are now common rather than rare exceptions.

    i really hope there is but i am not confident anytime something is good it gets canceled
    but why does everyone keep referring to it as a "series 2" and not season 2?
    maybe it has to do with what i mentioned above, how they release all at once and not weekly?
    i have seen it called season 2 on some sites but most cal it series 2 not season 2

    Ami the only one who finds this kind of odd ? sure it is great that we can binge watch the whole thing all at once right away but i i kind of like having the suspense and and have it generate more buzz i think it would have made it more popular if they staggered the releases and t hat it would have increased chances of a second series/season

    yeah me to but i usually just wit till the series is over of half way through and then binge watch
    it doesn't really bother me i just think that it effect popularity and kills the buzz/hype
    which only will bother me if it makes it so everyone forgets about it in a week and the hype dies out so quickly that it is not picked up for another season
