Just watched the series "White Dragon" on Amazon Prime this past 3-day weekend - beautifully shot in 4K in Hong Kong and Macau -- very slow moving - was "okay"

I was told by a friend whose taste is excellent that Russian Doll is very entertaining. I know from the trailer that it is a dark time-loop movie. Sort of a groundhog's day where the groundhog eats your face.

Happy Death Day (2017) was also a dark time-loop movie made on a $5 million production budget. I don't think Netflix looks at $5 million productions.

I'm tired of time loop productions, it's
such a cliched idea now. It's right
up there with the butler did it whodoneit
books, it's been done to death.

The only one I like now is Edge of
Tomorrow. It has a high budget,
big stars, and a great story.

I may have found the first one. A 25 minute TV show in 1990 (three years before Groundhog Day) starring Kurtwood Smith from Robocop.


The writer and producer of this short (12:01) considered suing the producers of Groundhog Day for stealing their idea, but eventually decided that they probably wouldn't win. The short story was written in 1973.

Probably the best end to a tv series
ever. I was stunned, and Newhart
says the studio audience was
ecstatic. We all were.
