    We've no problem with it (La Sig loves it.) I'm just a bit concerned we'll all end up pissed off and lost, like... well Lost.

      Maybe it's just that my inferiority complex is triggered by anything in German, French, or Spanish. Or math.

      If it were in Danish - a language that nobody outside Denmark could ever be expected to understand - I wouldn't feel so stupid. I liked that one Danish show about teachers.

        In Australia The Dark is dubbed. I cannot watch dubbed shows, the lip movements don't match the words and drive me to distraction. I'd rather read sub-titles.

          I wonít put up with dubbing either.

            Dubbing is very 20th Century isn't it?

              Yes, I haven't watched anything that was dubbed in decades. I'm surprised it's still done, especially as an increasing number of shows are multilingual.

                When it was 1st recommended to me by a student I played it on the default, dubbed setting and found the American actorsí voices for the teen characters annoying

                    Gotta love Portugal bravely resisting the dubbing that surrounds it.

                    Belgium, as usual, is its own category.

                      I once saw a film in Brussels that had four sets of subtitles. . . .

                        It's not on Netflix?

                          Portugal has a very high number of people who claim to have some facility in a second language. English and French being the two most popular. It seems that while they can understand spanish, very few claim to speak it. I suspect the actual number is higher. Is Bobby Pires the most famous french portuguese person?

                            Griezmann's mother is Portuguese.

                            There are a couple of dozen professional footballers who have some family connection to the Portuguese guest workers in France in the 60s-80s. There is even a club that has reached the third tier called Lusitanos.

                            Kevin Gameiro is another prominent example.

                              Yes, that's the Netflix version. Dubbed.

                                You know you can choose the audio, right?

                                  Well, I'll give it another crack, but I haven't had to change the settings on any other normally sub-titled show.

                                    I've yet to encounter a foreign language show/film where you couldn't choose the original audio and English subtitles (and there's often several options). I once had an issue with Battle Royale where I could only choose the original audio without subtitles, but that's about it, and it resolved itself after a while anyway.

                                      Am racing through this on catch up. It's very good. Good writing, good acting, very funny. It has led me to Toast of London which is also excellent. I was vaguely aware of it when it came out in 2014 (I think) but never bothered with it. A bit surreal at times but I quite like that.

                                        I could do without the musical interludes but other than that Toast is great.

                                          Dumb question, but does Russia produce any TV series worth watching? If so, any on Netflix?

                                            There's a series based around the early days of of the revolution from a couple of years back (I can't remember the name, but I mentioned it somewhere way back on this thread.) It was soapy but gorgeous to look at. There's also The Last Czar up recently, but I've no idea whether it's produced in Russia or not or whether it's any good.

                                              Made it to the end of The Americans without it being spoiled!

                                                I watched Meth Storm last night, HBO's account of the drugs crisis in rural Arkansas.

                                                    I've caught up to the most recent episode of Big Little Lies season 2, and for the first time in a long time I'm enjoying something with Meryl Streep in. After all these years, who'd have thought that playing a super-plain mumsy character who's basically evil would be what she should have been doing her whole life.
