    A strange and very interesting Sci Fi show from Netflix. An entire Russian production dubed in English (1st Netflix Original made 100% in Russia). Odd is, they are using American Cars. The main character drives a FWD mid 80s Buick Park Avenue, a vehicle that is hard to find roadworthy in the USA. On episode 4, one drives a 90s Chevy Impala SS, another car not very common in the USA, also some characters drove a mid 90s Cadillac and Ford Explorer. Weird on the take of older US car models and no License Plates on any car.

    Looks like the Russians can make some good TV.

    Yes, it’s a rather interesting and enjoyable on Hollywood series. It was made over two short seasons of 8 episodes each but shown on Netflix as one season of 16 episodes.

    It was a shocking end to the season and i was left wanting and waiting for the new instalments, either season 2 or 3 depending on your frame of reference.

    Some Russian sites supposedly claim it’s planned some time in 2020 but no statements are forthcoming from Netflix :oops:

    Seriously, Netflix can be rather annoying... they need to just make a statement and be done with it... the continued vacuum on release dates for the many series i want to watch is just annoying :mad:

    Indeed....

    Just started to watch the last season of Glitch. Too much time in between releases sucks, forgot some of the details and makes it too hard to follow up.

    Another thing that buggers me are series that are cancelled without a decent end. Pisses me off unfinished story lines.

    Will see, the wife and I we are hooked on this series, but she gave up on Glitch. I want to see how ends.
