    Seconded. Fantastic movie.
    The short story collection Stories of Your Life by Ted Chiang from which it is derived is also well worthwhile.

    Totally agree with this (both movie and stories). I actually bought this movie, and I pretty much *never* buy movies.

    Not on Netflix or Amazon but this show is not the same old same old.

    You’ll notice some filming production twists and well above average music production.

    Billionaire John Paul Getty’s grandson gets kidnapped and held for ransom.

    Anyone watch "The Terror" (AMC)? On episode 8 now. I like it. Heart of Darkness-y.

    Only complaint is the "bear" thing. Its kinda like Lost - would seem more authentic if they just never show it and only show what it does. When Lost put a giant smoke thing on screen it seriously damaged my ability to suspend disbelief. Similar issue here.

    I watched the whole thing. Still not sure what I thought of it. Had to struggle through the last 3-4 episodes. Ok now I’m tbjngjng about it more.

    i feel the mutineers can off as too evil. It descended into panto at some point. I think they lost the script towards the end of each individual’s need for survival, and it became more rebellion vs society rather than man v nature. And that’s why it began to feel as you say “heart of darkness-y”

    I wonder if all if you are still sleeping on Detectorists.

    I shit you not that it is one of the funniest tv shows available. And incredibly smart.

    Seriously. If you like The Office, if you like Monty Python, if you can handle early Arrested Development style humor but turned to 11, subtlely, if you like to laugh at jokes without a laugh track, watch it. I implore you.

    Dude who played Gareth is a comedic genius.

    Eta: also, I’m sure I’ve posted before, but what a brilliant theme song. Worth repeating.

    Just got turned on to Scott & Bailey by a writer I follow on Twitter. It's a British cop show set in Manchester, really interesting right from the start. On Amazon.

    nice song, the guitar picking sounds like the theme music for carcassonne, which holds the distinction of being the only app I've ever paid for in 10 years, not because its particularly amazing, but i played it enough on a jail broken phone I figured I'd toss the creators a bone.
