    Who is America? - Sacha Baron Cohen

    Just watched it, glad to find out it isn't just that one character but 4. It's very hit/miss and the setups/characters (Minus the one in the scooter which has promise) do not seem anywhere near as well rehearsed/written as his last generation material. I'm curious if it's these 4 throughout the series or it's going to be new ones every week but yeah very hit/miss.

    Who is America? - Sacha Baron Cohen

    This is a bit weird, I think the 'script' is good and he's doing what he does best but I can't help but feel disappointed with the look and sound of the character. I just don't get why he's gone for the rubber masking, if he's doing it to hide his identity why is he then talking in a similar way to his most popular character (in the states) Borat? It really seems a missed opportunity here, I'd have gone for a bearded man with specs and a trump hat with a texas voice or something as that is quite a difference to what he usually does and it fits with his narrative here.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    Like the lawyer (Rudolf) jokes early on in the series, I just can't imagine the concept of a serial staircase killer. He would be the worst serial killer ever as it's just so unpredictable if your victim would die or not. If it was an accident from an argument, I just can't imagine that happening twice.

    Who is America? - Sacha Baron Cohen

    Looking like he's finally returning to his roots. I really miss Sacha's style of pranking, nobody ever really came close to matching his creativeness whilst he was away. Just curious how he disguised himself this time around? A Trump hat wearing red neck perhaps?

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    Yeah I recently have watched this over a course of about a week. I think it might be my favorite but I still always am hoping for a 'JINX' at the end of these shows now I don't think he did it either, I don't think anyone could ever hold it together with so many friends/family without tripping up somewhere. Yet I still think falling down the steps sounds absurd given the consequences, during the early stages of the series I was actually thinking one of the kids had done it and managed to escape or that Michael knows that one of the kids did it and has helped them cover it up. That theory started to dismantle as the show went on though. I guess I'm left with nothing more than just the most unfortunate craziest fall and set of reactions down a badly designed/maintained staircase.

    Favorite Gig?

    I've never been to a gig. Unless videogame music live counts? More like an orchestra where you sit down though.
  10. 2 episodes in now (staircase) and yeah, it's really impressive. Would have never guessed it was nearly 15 years old! It's pretty much the same formula as Jinx etc as it still plays out like a current investigation unfolding right before you. For some reason I was worried it would have those old cliches like a narrator, reconstructions and generic talking head shots.

    A Quiet Place

    There seemed to be no contact with the outside world from what I could remember. Just old news articles on the wall. So personally I bought into them being a part of a community that was out of reach.

    A Quiet Place

    Entertaining, solid 2.5/5 from me. I would have made major changes: 1. No soundtrack score at all . If you’re going to go with the concept then I would have gone all the way. The music really ruins multiple moments, I can imagine at one point it had no music but it was probably forced in by external forces. 2. I would have based this in an older time period. Would have made it feel a little less relatable which would have made it feel more creepy I think. 3. The creature design was horrendous. I’d have actually gone with a vague suggestion of a spirit/demon that you never really see. 4. No cheap jump scares. There was actually one clever jump scare though, there was a scene that was quite silent (no music had played for a while) and then it suddenly cuts to a scene of loud river fall. It was a natural scare playing with the ‘gimmick’ in a much more natural way. Rather than just throwing a sudden short stab of audio mid scene.
  14. I'm a big fan of MAM, Jinx, Keepers etc but have never seen the StairCase but have often heard people bring it up. In my head, the 'formula' these shows have and their tone (really nicely presented details with graphics. Jumping back and fourth with the actual subjects rather than just talking about them etc) was something that was created with The Jinx. So I just presume the StairCase will look and feel more dated and traditional. I'm too scared to watch any trailers to clarify this. I'm being daft right?
