I'll grant you, there was no need for the Klingons to look like Uruk Hai and the mushroom drive was... different. Who doesn't like an alien threesome though?

I read the first Babylon Berlin with an open mind, and it really was a good piece of work. It kind of reminded me of Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park actually.

 

Ive yet to see the TV series, but I note from wiki they included elements like the lead actress, whilst working as a police stenographer was also doing overtime as a prostitute. Which is completely contrary to the character as in the book  whom is morally principled yet not strait laced. Ill probably watch it regardless, but if they have taken that far leave of the books, im not quite sure if its going to be worth the effort.

I watched a few episodes, but it seemed over crowded with things happeneing to me. As Banshee1 has pointed out, it took a lot from all across the books and crammed it into the first season. I don't know if I am going back to it.


 

Punisher. S2, E1.
Frank dials bar-fights up to 12.
Starts off right after S1 ending, and delivers. :)

 
Have seen the first few episodes so far. I think there is a gap of several months between the seasons,

New season of the Grand Tour is out.  They've dropped the car reviews in order to focus more on Clarkson and the boys stunts and road trips.  We've only watched the first episode of the season and it was fairly decent.

Well, we were afraid Season 2 of The Punisher was going to be 'woke' or PC in some way, but clearly it's not:

 

 

Yeah, surely Frank Castle is all about giving wymmyns their rights--AND their lefts.

Actually the ladies gave him a run for his money. He won, he's The Punisher after all, but those chick were no chicken. Pretty realistic too.

Some hint's here about the 5th series of Peaky Blinders. Tommy supposedly becomes a Labour MP, but someone tries to kill him with a Car Bomb.

It looks like that it wont wrap at the end of Series 5 as we thought, but there will be another 2 series after that, so it looks like they might be bringing it up to the outbreak of WW2.

If you like zombies in your joseon period K-drama there is now "Kingdom" on Netflix. The title is not the most creative, but it is a really interesting take on the zombie plague. Patient zero is

The characters are all played straight as if reacting to actual  occurrences instead of your usual silly humouristic take in zombie movies.

Finished Narcos:Mexico. The theme of it this season of the show would be "heavy is the head that wears the crown." of all the crime dramas I have seen, I have never seen a crime boss be so stressed out. Props to Diego Luna for his acting.

Also finally saw season 2 of American Crime story and I think it nearly tops the first season. 2nd season is less procedural and gets more into characters. It also was more psychologically disturbing, especially witnessing Cunanan's full-tilt narcissism and where it came from. The second to last ep takes a microscope to his upbringing, depicting his egotistical father who spoiled him into the monster he became. Parents, tell your kids "no" for God's sake. All this talk of school shooters being bullied, when in reality a lot are indulged into pathology.

Finished Punisher a few days back, and while I like it, I am a bit annoyed how violence and (non)consequences are handled.
Basically, if you are not killed, you are good to go within hours no matter damage sustained.

I know it is tv, fictional etc, but if you go through the lenghts of showing graphic violence with realistic (?) wounds, you should not let them heal this quickly.

What?! Humboldt, Del Norte & Mendocino counties? I thought it was all mellow hippy pothead paradise, what with 'rope' being 'legal' and all...though I had heard stories in the past about the growers trying to 'poach' one another's product and all that. Crap like boobytraps, punji stakes, IEDs...

 

 

Though I have to wonder about this whole 'medical marijuana' thing; MIchael Savage once made a rude comment probably at least a decade ago how a 'crooked' doctor would write you a prescription because of practically any reason you could want--period cramps; constipation; loose stools; gluttony, dysphagia etc.

If you find that interesting, there is a really good podcast about it, from the producer of the documentary.

https://art19.com/sh...bf-7b8839e14730

 

Sounds like a real interesting place to visit, if you can look past all the PTSD M16 toting Vietnam Veterans who think you are Victor Charlie, and the Easy Rider Hipsters who figure they may as well shoot 'The Man' before he shoots them. It sounds like a place Hunter S Thompson should have retired to.

 

Beautiful part of the world it has to be said, even with all the burned out camper vans.

I think the story of all those M16 toting 'Nam Vets' turned out to be a rather exaggerated.

I am more interested in those crooked docs and the impact Their 'corruption' had on healthcare

After Colorado passed medical marijuana the state quickly led the nation in the incidence of generalized non-specific lower back pain in the 18-36 year old males.

Yeah, funnily enough I woke up with a back pain this morning. :D

 

Yeah, im sure the Vietnam vets thing is exaggerated, they way they were talking they make it sound like the movie Southern Comfort. I have to admit though, i find these fringe communities in the US very interesting. Ive been a fan of the moonshiners show, and Ive found documentaries about Ruby Ridge fairly insightful too. These people seem to carry the torch of the American pioneer spirit, whatever transgressions they might make.

 

We are having a major issue about medicinal marijuana here in the UK. There is no prospect of it being legalized but there is a major debate about medicine being distilled from it to help children that suffer from fits. The Government, commendably, is pushing the medical community to procure it, but the medical community is dragging their heels, suggesting there is no evidence of any medicinal qualities of it. Despite several decades worth of studies in the US proving the contary.

There aren't really all that many actual scientific studies of medical marijuana here in the states either.  Because under federal law it is considered a dangerous drug with no redeeming use, getting permission to conduct any serious study of its usefulness to treat anything is nearly impossible.  What we do have are a lot of anecdotes about how it has dramatically helped some condition or another.  Until Federal law is changed research will remain blocked.
