I've been really enjoying this show.

I really like this show. The subtitles seem to be jarringly slow/behind the dialogue with some frequency though. Otherwise I really like that I went into this not really knowing anything about it, so even several episodes in, I'm still not sure if it's straightforward or...not.

Interesting how they seem to be setting us up for high weirdness, then wrap everything up neatly by the end of the episode with mundane explanations like a Scooby Doo mystery.

Also kind of funny that they flipped the title in translation from ‘Zone Blanche’ to Black Spot. I guess ‘White Zone’ might read a little different in English, and Dead Zone was already taken.

I screamed through Season 1.
Now that I am on Season 2, I am still enjoying it, but it has taken me a month to get to the beginning of the sixth episode. I put it on, watch maybe 5 minutes, and fall asleep.
The next night I go back and it's the thing I want to watch, find where I fell asleep, turn it on, fall asleep within five minutes. It's weird.
