Ozzie Snags a Gross Best
Posted By:

This one contains spoilers. If you haven't watched the second episode of The Last of Us, maybe go do that first.

Said episode includes a moment which struck us as super gross and is unsurprisingly being hailed a worst (as in most disgusting) ever.

Posted By:

Netflix have had great success with Korean series and films among international audiences. Their recently release JUNG_E though being bizarrely trashed by some reviewers is truly brilliant and we hope it does well.

One series which performed very well in Asia but not more broadly is Crash Landing on You, a romantic drama about a South Korean heiress who accidentally paraglides into North Korea and ends up falling in love with a North Korean officer.
