Nominative determinism strikes Pretty Lake in Netflix's Between

Posted on May 13, 2015 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Who’d have thought that in a town called ‘Pretty Lake’, everyone over the age of 21 would end up dying of a mysterious disease, leaving only pretty people behind?

To be fair, this is actually a co-production between Netflix and Canadian TV channel CityTV, so it's not all Netflix's fault, although perhaps they should have seen it coming, given that CityTV is responsible for Seed and Young Drunk Punk*.

* To be fair, it's entirely possible that Netflix watched The Booth At The End and thought that was representative of City's output. It's not.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
