    I read that the original AU series wasn't well received by critics, so hopefully this one deliver. Wala pang successful US remake from Australia kaya mataas ang expectation ko dito at sa darating na American version ng The Slap.

    Huwag sana matulad sa Kath & Kim, at Rake.

    excited na ako nito bukas
    from 6 episodes to 10??? wow.

    Mod Forg critically acclaimed naman siya. I read excellent reviews about this show.

    nominated kaya ito sa Austalian Emmys for BEST DRAMA SERIES.

    I love the original version kasi mind blowing yung twist talaga!

    Sana mapantayan ng US ang acting ng mga actors dito.
    Ang galing ni Martin Henderson.*okay*

    Original Aussie trailer:

    Back to back 2 episodes today.

    Sana hindi ako ma-disappoint pero feeling ko mag-re-reklamo ako later :lol:

    Verdict:

    It's good. Really good.
    Great performances from Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis.*okay*
    Solid acting from Ryan. May ibubuga pala siya.
    Higit sa lahat OMGoshhhh hotness pa rin ang body niya.:bashful:

    Ang ganda rin ng attack ni Lewis sa kanyang character. Ginawa niyang b!tchy haha. Same din sa Australian version kung saan nakakaasar din yung snotty detective doon.

    I like the daughters of Ben. They're good.
    The eldsest hawig ni Rhian Ramos.

    The youngest hawig naman ni Reese Witherspoon. Ano kayang nararamdaman ni Ryan ha ha.

    Mas gusto ko ang Christy dito. Mas may depth ang acting.

    Dislikes

    The actress playing Jess kasi hindi sila bagay ni Ryan. She's a fine actress but their chemistry is off.
    Marami pa naman silang sex scenes sa Australian version.:naughty:


    The actor playing Dave. Chaka dito. Mataba pa at dugyutin. Sa Australia believable ang pagiging lothario kasi cute at most of the time naka-undies lang. Buti naman dito hindi siya hubadero kasi chaka talaga.:bop:

    The young actor playing Tom. Sa Australia mukhang anghel talaga dito ordinary lang.

    Wala masyado impact ang cinematography.

    Mas chaka ang dating ni Juliette Lewis. If there's anything consistent about her, it's the creepy face she's sporting throughout those first two episodes.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    i think she's channeling Anthony Hayes.
    so nagiging *****y and creepy siya ha ha

    para rin kasi akong nasanay sa kanya as "THE OTHER SISTER" .

    It doesn't help that the last time I saw her, she was playing a ditzy forty-something character in NBC's The Firm tapos ganoon din ang magiging dating ng role niya sa isa pa niyang show na Wayward Pines.

    I did not know this was a remake, thought this was original..

    Blegh. It was like they collected all worst characters on TV and decided to make a show. I don't know if they were written stupidly, or just with a lot of still unknown issues.

    If not for baby-face Ryan Phillipe, I wouldn't watch this. He is not even believable as a father of a b!tchy teenager.

    That judgmental neighbor, I assumed he's a priest, hindi pala? but he's easy on judging people.. and that brother!! Ugh. I can't even. Of all the fat actors to cast.. really, they get this smug face one

    lol kaya pala namatay si Lidia sa Under The Dome, nandito pala siya hahaha! And the nerve to think about hooking up the night before funeral? ny golly

    And most of all, Juliette Lewis. I respect her as an actress, but damn, why did she accept this project. Her character here is unreasonable and unforgivable.

    Poor Ryan Phillipe, life ruined unexpectedly haha

    --
    I'm curious tho as to what happened with Tom..
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^whoa ganun mo ka-hate?:lol:

    may explanation ito later
    He is not even believable as a father of a b!tchy teenager.

    sa Australia fat white smug one
    That judgmental neighbor, I assumed he's a priest, hindi pala? but he's easy on judging people.. and that brother!! Ugh. I can't even. Of all the fat actors to cast.. really, they get this smug face one


    wala naman siyang movies kasi eh. need niya ng money:D

  • somuchwinsomuchwin PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Hahah I wasn't expecting to not like this haha pero naka-ilang roll ako ng eyes sa mga ganap. Lalo na ang media na trespassing na, tapos di ko talaga ma-take yung mga pulis dito HAHAAHA


    Pero we'll see.. baka sa mga susunod e maging malinawa ang lahat hahaa
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ginaya lang din nila gaano nakakaasar ang police sa Aussie version.

    gaganda ito pag malapit na ang Finale.
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Ryan Philippe is reaching forty later this year but he still looks too young to be a father of two daughters, where the eldest could well be her own sister (which could be the case in real life if the actress is actually in her 20's).
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Masyadong nakakairita na talaga si Det. Cornell. Ang sarap sampalin ng nguso niya.

    Similar pa rin ang script nitong Episode 3 pero may malaking pagbabago doon sa pag-stash ng flashlight.

    Australia: torch
    US: flashlight

    Nagagandahan talaga ako kay Natalie.
    Yung eldest daughter.

    Ang guapo ng nakuha nilang Scott
    Hot man in uniform.

    Ryan Philippe is still solid.
    He's really good.

    Hanggang episode 10 pala to. 6 lang sa Australia. Going to the Australian version's wiki page was a huge mistake. Now, alam ko na tunay na killer, and shocking! Sana baguhin sa US. :bash: :rotfl:


    and Ryan's super hot! ang gwapo pa din nya, and he's really good ha. :love: :lol:
  • forgforg Administrator PEx Moderator
    Today is the season finale in the US, anyone who has seen all 10 episodes?
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I will watch it soon Mod Forg.
    naging busy ako lately kaya nawala na ito sa queue ko.
    feel ko naman same pa rin naman ng ending.
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    OMG!! The ending was intense and the killer is so PSYCHO!!!

    Given that this is supposed to be a self-contained story every season, I wonder if elements of Season 1 would be carried over to the next back to back with the next new season-long case.

    I'll watch the Aussie mini sometime soon. :)
  • forgforg Administrator PEx Moderator
    Renewed for Season 2 but with likely different cast (except the detective) and new story
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Hoepfully though elements of last season is carried over.
    I so want Abbie to be put behind bars. Natalie needs to take her sister down!
