Just binged Daisy Jones and The Six.  Interesting. But a lot of story gaps that should have been filled over that many episodes. Worth the time to watch though.

First: it has Andrew Scott, so I’m in. His recent Hamlet made me weep with its beauty.

Second: this is a repeatedly remade concept from a book. You might’ve seen the movie with Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matt Damon. It’s a very good concept.
Third: the author of the novel has a…complex…personal story including being chronically drunk, sexually hyperactive (calling her next lover from the bed of her current one), and blatantly severely anti-Semitic (disappointed in the “semicaust” because it “only” killed six million Jews).

I’m totally surprised that the last little bit of info hasn’t gotten her work cancelled, really. 

Fourth: this production is beautifully directed with amazing cinematography. We’re totally enjoying it, about three episodes in.

It took me a while to get into Deadloch. It was teetering on the edge of being over the top and obnoxious. But well worth a watch.

You have to have Amazon Prime to get it.
After playing three different variants of this game... it is awesome to see a live version of it.
It is quite graphic with the violent parts... but the wife is even hooked on this "mini- series". Which is rare for her.
The unique/ quirky characters in it mimic the ones from the game,
Highly recommended.


Yup on my bucket watch list.

Yes, really like this. The lead actress is in another Australian series about politics and plays a much livelier, if vapid, political operative. 

Also great: "Defending the Guilty", a BBC series about an aspiring British barrister who may not be cut out for a cutthroat career in law. Sadly lasted only 1 season due to Covid lockdown. The lead actor is quite talented and has directed a coupla movies to boot.

I didn't include Christians in that list because I think most would also require closed captions - although they may not want them. 

But regardless, my favourite theme about the show, no matter how coarse the language may be, is when friends ask for help, you help them.

Oh I see you working. We don't need no stinking linguists. We got practicalities. Arggggggggggggggg! lol

We’re binging and enjoying Hijack, too.
Of course, I enjoyed it the first time around when it was Die Hard.

I was left alone with the TV remote yesterday and was going to re-watch Slow Horses but this caught my eye. So I binged 6 of 7 episodes. I don't know how they can make "Airport," a 90-minute movie with a lot of drama and soap opera in the air and on the ground, into a 7-hour TV show (essentially) that's even more gripping? But they did it. So it's formulaic in that way, and I can accept that. But it's ludicrous how goddam stupid it is sometimes. One line in this trailer is such a clunker when it happens because it runs contrary to the character's style. But a major plot point (might be a spoiler but that's okay because it was a spoiler for me as soon as I saw it) is that passengers were communicating with the ground and the hijackers wanted to stop that, so they shut off the plane's wifi. MAJOR plot point. 

Three-and-a-half stars, Joe Bob says check it out.


We just finished watching Season 5 of Luther and bad writing seems to follow Idris Elba around whatever he's in.
