I've been thinking about it since that post actually, my list is up to 12 now. Steve Evans the latest. Just visioned his trousers falling down during green light, red light, shortly before being eliminated.

Can seem him beravating the ref before he is 'eliminated'

Tbf, you could do the glass pane bridge thing without killing everyone...should you wish not to do so. 

 

I was thinking they could just land on crash pads...but then you have the whole shattered glass issue. 

 

Might need to rethink this.

Watched the first episode last night with our teenager. I can see why it's blown up as a social media buzz amongst teens. 

 

Are you all watching with the dub or the subtitles? I literally laughed out loud at some of the dubs in the first episode as my wife doesn't want to bother with subtitles. It reminded me of a bad PS2 era videogame voice over. Seemed to get better as the episode went on though strangely enough and by the time they got to the actual game in that first episode I wasn't actively thinking about it. 

 

Also, all I could think about was Takeshi's Castle. I want to watch this with Craig Charles.

I'm watching with the dubs. 

 

At first it put me off, but you get strangely used to it after a while. 

 

Tbf, I think what's going on is so entertaining you stop thinking about it after a while.

Watched it, enjoyed it and now pretty much forgot about it.

 

Not half as good as social media is making out.

 

Every other Tik Tok video our lass watches is "RED LIGHT.......!!!"

Pretty much my thoughts too

Tbf, that's comfortably one of the best things Netflix have produced.

 

Telegraphed quite a few of the twists, but it didn't detract from what was a very entertaining show.

 

Kinda wish it was a one and done, but I suppose there is plenty of scope for new stories.

 

Is it me, or do East Asian directors just know how to direct action and gore better than most?

Finished this last night.

 

Brilliant moments in this, spotted that 001 storyline a mile off. 
 

Red light, Green light the absolute highlight. 

 

Figured it out in 2'nd episode.
