    I mean Netflix had nothing at all to do with the production at all. They literally just bought a completed show from Showtime/CBS/Paramount and put it on their service instead

        Tbh I think Paramount needs money badly and was happy someone would buy it. Their CEO just resigned yesterday

      I don't know anything about the industry -- Why would an existing network sell such an excellent show?
      why not put it on their own network?

        Because Paramount is hemorrhaging money. They've been desperate to attract a buyer, someone to take all of their debt

        So when Netflix says we'll buy that show you made, they happily sell it.

          I'm surprised Amazon hasn't bought them tbh. Combining the two streaming services into one to allow expense sharing and giving Amazon access to a the Paramount back catalog and IPs seems like a win-win.

            after the game of hot potato WB was the potato in, no one is going to buy another studio. as that was a clear indication all the studios are pulling the bullshit where they leverage every production as an asset for "free money."

            Amazon seems more interested in live sports than growing their media library. Not saying it's right or wrong or a good or bad strategy, just that they aren't looking to expand that way imo

            we got wind of it happening here, and we all thought they were going to bastardize it in some way. but they played it completely, for lack of a better term, straight. ripley is the villain, everyone around him is a mark, he plays everyone, he's still kinda gay, but he's not played as a victim. its pretty much the exact story that was written in 1955. its, dare i fricking say, good. they jam in this guy as a private detective in the 50s, but he gets played just as hard as anyone else.

          it was interesting to learn who she is.
          i assumed i knew "her type" because of the context in which we meet her.

          >completely fake
          I wouldn't say fake, she was a little lost maybe, trying some things.
          sort of picrel

          the story is very old. the character she played was the definitive "hanger on." She lacked the self awareness to recognize she was a leech, but her perception of ripley as a leech was entirely projection, as she simply wasn't smart enough to realize ripley was a pathological liar.

          i mean shit Black folk, the original story is literally called "the talented mr ripley."

        I saw his Hamlet and it's LITERALLY THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD. You don't know how bad it is until you've seen it. It's practically sacrilege, just revolting, cringe, embarrassing, boring all in one. I detest this narcissistic mediocrity.

            He is a none actor. Put him in comedies as the funny butthole if you must (even though he sucks at that too 9 times out of 10) but in anything serious he sticks out like a sore dick.

              not defending him or anything, but he's such a non-entity that it comes off as miraculous that anyone would notice him in anything, much less hate him.

                He is a weird looking dude that can't act, and he started in a time when that was relatively rare in big productions. Nowadays they all look weird and suck at their job, so he isn't as noticeable anymore.

            The thing is that Hamlet is a giant part, it's possibly the greatest lead part in the entire history of Western acting. Taking it on is automatically directing all the attention on yourself. But if you're at least doing your best and trying to fit the tradition, no matter how big you frick up, it would be excusable. Most actors will never be able to perform Shakespeare as he deserves to be performed so you can't blame them for failing. But what Andrew Scott does is take this lead role, this all-attention grabbing role, and he doesn't try in the slightest to play Hamlet, he takes a big steaming pile of shit on it while getting applause and everyone in this disgusting hipster gay culture enjoys the charade and the circlejerk never ends.

            I DETEST him.

                But as I said, the difference is that Andrew Scott doesn't try and fail, he purposefully is shitting on it with his revolting neo-bourgeois hipster culture artistic temperament. Just LOOK at this horror show:

    I like the face close ups they did throughout the series, like it's left ambiguous if everyone looks at Tom with suspicion and hatred or if that's just his own narcissism reflecting that onto himself
    It really drives home that this Ripley isn't a likeable charismatic con artist but a real slimy sociopathic manipulator
