I order you to forgive yourself!

It has a really high rating of 9.4 on IMDB right now!

It's a show with a main character that has social anxiety disorder but connects to people by hacking them. (Through hacking, he can find out what other people like, their habits, hobbies, and what they want to hide from other people.)

I watched the two first episodes, so far I really like the characters and story. Almost has a fight club feel to it.

What's nice is that the hacking part is done a whole lot better than in any other show or movies I've watched before.

Domo arigat... :stfu:

Looks like it could be decent. It generally takes a lot for me to get into modern live action series, but I might give this one a try.

I'm exactly the same, it's so hard for me to get into modern live action series. It feels like a lot of them waste their potential with a lot of unoriginal plot. This one is decent awesome though!

Red classic.

I was recommended it (indirectly) by someone that liked Dexter (which I liked. At least, most of it.) I can see some minor resemblance, but it does seem like it's headed in a completely different direction. I recommend avoiding the show's sub-reddit if you want to avoid potential future spoilers. Either way, the show interests me and I look forward to seeing what happens.

Some people think so but I have my doubts.

Just finished watching the first episode. The moment he said "I hate Facebook", I was sold.

heh. Same. And it being a hacking series with a drug abusing main char. But having finished it I definitely did not STAY because of these. I stayed because awesome characters and plot twists. And literally nothing to complain about. This is fucking rare these days.
It kept me so hooked, I watched the whole thing in like 3 days.

It kind of lost me towards the end tbh. Not sure if I can be bothered to keep watching when the next season comes.

Yeah the psycho stuff gets more prevalent while the hacking dulls down and it crushes everything you thought you knew. Definitely a bold move and personally I liked it, but naturally it will put off others.

Got someone to do a decent impersonation and then used professional audio engineers to make it sound like the original actor

IlyaSnopchenko -- Sure doesn't sound perfect... nothing is. I know it's better than my own attempts at voiceacting (but I'll have to resort to that, too; I've just been putting that off for ages).

Oh_Man -- oh right, yeh if ur trying to do additional dialogue for dead or unavailable actors then its ur only option. it still doesnt sound perfect though
[2024-2-29. : 8:30 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- I'm 99% satisfied with the results Jun3hong was able to extract from Elevenlabs for our project... but of course YMMV
[2024-2-29. : 8:29 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- It is a good solution for original characters, I guess, but if you want to visit a canon character, there's bound to be issues.

Oh_Man -- the alternative is go on voices dot com or some pay to play sites and hire some cheap talent

Sila12 -- Nothing
[2024-2-29. : 5:20 am]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Mind you, it was almost impossible to get decent expressions for Zeratul, mostly because he is very much emotionless most of the time in his real voice lines. Which is understandable for story reasons, of course, but not beneficial for our purposes. :-)
[2024-2-29. : 5:18 am]
IlyaSnopchenko -- I feel it's good enough, and the alternative is having nothing at all. And sometimes, in our case, Jun3hong got surprisingly good performance out of the AI. You can ask him how many attempts it took him.
