I suppose I’d classify this as TV. I gave in, started watched Squid Game on Netflix streaming. Not what I expected. I expected wacky off the wall crazy, along the lines of Battle Royale (movie that spawned the Hunger Games). It’s deeper than that. Much more drama and backstory (2 eps in). I like it so far.

Through Ep 6. It’s getting to Korean-level crazy. Not quite full-blown, but we’re getting there. I think this series really found the line to hook both Asian and American audiences, and keeps toeing that line, and it’s worked very well. We’ll see what happens in the last couple of eps.
