    Although Squid Game only has 9 eps, so you might want to revise that whole "minimum episode count" thing, lol.

    Yeah I went ahead and adjusted it. I guess in the age of streaming we should expect less episodes.

    Well this is for November. I wish I resurrected it sooner so we can do a horror series like AHS, Channel Zero, or the new Twilight Zone. Probably Child's Play next year.

    Btw the dubbing is bad on Squid Game. Better to watch it in Korean.

    So let's watch some Squid Game!

    What is Squid Game?
    Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits — with deadly high stakes.

    Just started it this evening, was only planning to watch 2 episodes but now am on episode 4. This show just gets wilder and wilder as it goes along.

    I finished it. Really liked it, even though I saw one of the major twists coming a mile away. I'm kind of at a loss for how S2 will be able to match up, though, given the direction they set up.

    Yeah, I got the two major twist pretty early, though I found how they played out to make it cool that I did. I too really liked it. I don't know if I'll ever be able to watch it again (the end of the penultimate episode nearly broke me), but I really liked it.

    The spacing of the "games" felt odd to me early. I wondered what it would do to the pace, but that was never an issue. Every episode flew by, in excruciating agony.

    Yeah, it’s going to be very hard to have the same impact as season 1. Not going to have the same shock value whatever they do as now people are almost expecting it from the show. Red light green light was my favourite game and I would probably enjoying playing a safe version of that. :D

    I don’t think I’ll be rewatching this for a good while if at all. It was a great watch but more of a one and done type show for me. Will definitely watch a season 2 though.

    Like flick said it's a wild, wild ride. I have my thoughts that'll post when I reach the end.

    I've been meaning to watch that one. I'll second the nomination. I was also thinking Wheel of Time.
