I didn't get your point.you meant Ola means false friend or what? My point is some Yoruba names were used like Remi, Odesanya and Ola

False friend as in a word in a language that bears a resemblance to a word in another language but in fact has a different meaning. Remi & Ola are names found in other languages too, in season 1 Ola mentioned that they were Europeans, from one of these Nordic countries, I think, these countries have names with the same spellings as some Yoruba names though not necessarily pronounced the same e.g Ola, Remi, Bisi, Aina, etc.

Who else noticed some Yoruba names like Ola, Oderinde etc in Sex Education series.

Ola as used in the series is not a Yoruba name, it's a false friend, you're right about Odesanya though.

FBI: Most Wanted is way better than FBI, it's clear from last year's backdoor pilot, dunno but almost all the actors in FBI annoy me, John Boyd is a good addition though

Yes! But the network here is frustrating.

I'm happy for you, there's a calm that comes with getting an apartment of your taste, I'm hoping to get one too next month, did you go through an agent or something, I need pointers if it's not too much trouble, thanks.

Does this look appealing to even you op? No paragraphing, nothing. At least put a little bit of an effort to your copy and paste.

I am not angry but the series makes no sense. Simple

Fair enough.

He isn't wrong, the story is very disjointed and badly told and also the choice of actors are a huge miss.. Never have I ever pictured Regina king as a super hero character..although she doing a good job.. But it doesn't feel right.. I had high hopes for this show, it ended up being one of the lamest shows I've seen in a while.

I thought this was gonna be a continuation of the original watchmen movie, rather it ended up being a racial/racism political horseshit.

The EP made it known way before the release that it wasn't going to be a continuation of the movie and it's not exactly an adaptation of the comic, he knew what he was getting into and even acknowledged it's going to polarize the Watchmen fans, the Watchmen comics are canon & the series is like a retelling that takes place in the modern world featuring contemporary issues, it's a weird show though but I'm fascinated by it, not everyone will like it and that's fine. Also Regina King is killing the role, so I don't know about it not filling right.

Started with episode 1 and so far, it is a big pile of horseshit

So disjointed and boring. Wonder why many enjoy watching mediocrity


Lmaoo you sound angry, actually it's not mediocre in anyway, just jump and pass.

If messi was from Europe, he will have more international goals than Ronaldo. Last I checked, Ronaldo pads his goals against small small farmers just like he does at club level

Lmao bin all these hypotheticals.

This is good news. Hope Netflix won't butcher the story.

Word, it's hit or miss with them when it comes to movies.

Nah, that would be a bore. Everyone already knows his story.

John Henry series would be perfect. A man that single handedly competed against a coal-powered, rail building contraption (a robot, basically), and won. Cut a path through a mountain all by himself while doing it. It's an inspirational story. Ought to be told imho.


A movie about him is already in the works, by Netflix I think, hopefully we'll see a show about him soon.

Mehn! HTGAWM just got hotter, I think this is the best episode so far, your heart keeps racing from the beginning till the end.


Mad at myself for continuing this show, you can't just throw in a cheap soap opera retcon(can't explain much so I don't spoil it for others), & Nowalk pretty much admitted they were making it up as they go along, LOL.

Wait, you found "The Exorcist” scary?

The 1973 movie, not the series, & no I didn't, horror is my favourite genre, I used it as a comparison.

Watchmen, if you're worried, you can totally get into it if you've not read the comic or watched the movie, it's not even directly adapted, the pilot was everything I expected and more. Regina King wearing the cape like a second skin.

Given what Liz in The Blacklist has passed through, you'd think she'd be wary of her new neighbour, but then, she's always been stupid.
