Haven't seen any of it yet. I must live in a cave. Apparently.

Apparently everyone else HAS seen it. So good. Let me know how it works out for you.

But while we are at it your kids should not have cell phones with internet access either. Or unmonitored internet access at all.

I can't believe it when I see this.

What the heck are people thinking?

It seems like one of those situations where people who watched it tend to enjoy it and so talk about it, but I personally have not watched it - I don't want to invest the time in a new series.

I am considering about watching the new Dune sometime over the next few days, initial reports tend to be positive reviews.

Dune was really well done, but it's a two parter.

I only saw the trailer to Squid, and it looked exploitive to me.

No, your kid probably shouldn't watch 'Squid Game'

But they can still play it, right?

@#3 ... But while we are at it your kids should not have cell phones with ... unmonitored internet access ...

Worth repeating in bold...

I am always f--king amazed when I talk with parents and they boast about how they let their children roam the Internet. When I ask if they know what their children are accessing, they deflect.

To me, that ignorance of what their children are exposed to borders on child abuse.

Those conversations usually do not end up in a happy place..

No --- they shouldn't watch that. It is *very* violent and messed up. More so than game of thrones I think.
