    Favorite episodes in the series so far. Lee Jung-jae's acting is getting better, the tension is ramping up, and we're starting to learn how this game even gets funding in the first place.

    The best episode so far. You leave with a sense of horror towards these games - something the Hunger Games franchise wasn't able to accomplish. The production design, costume design, and cinematography are amazing - this is a Korean show after all.

    Most of the cast is good. Jung Ho-yeon and Park Hae-soo both deserved their Emmy nominations. I'm baffled that Lee Jung-jae won the Best Leading Actor Emmy. He overdoes every mannerism and facial expression. What's really baffling is…

    I remembered this as being funny and clever, but then again I watched this before what I call "my cinematic enlightenment," so I'm not surprised its not the 4/4 masterpiece I thought it was. Still, I liked it and I think modern blockbuster (Endgame and Infinity War, cough cough) could learn some lessons from this movie. But yeah, this isn't Emmerich's best work, Midway is better.
