The Battlestar Galactica reboot was spectacular, without a doubt the best "re-" that has ever been produced.

I don't think that the quality remained consistent, from the time that they landed on the planet it never quite returned to its initial excellence.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

Just started both Battlestar Galactica and Brooklyn 99 (sp?).

For the first time on both of those or rewatching? Either way, you're in for a treat ^_^

First time for both. I was instantly engrossed in BSG. I started with the two-part and now I'm a few episodes into the show.

Darn, you’re making me want to re-watch it now, hehe. I’m half way through the second season of a re-watch of Fringe at the moment. Maybe I’ll add it to the list after that. I’ve nothing but time when it comes to watching stuff at the moment.

Bah, Battlestar dragged along too much.. They could've wrapped it up with Less mysticism. Tp4 h8s plots involving mysticism.

Tp4 hates plots involving mysticism.


I thought that whatever "mysticism" was in there was mostly mashed up with a kind of "hive mind" process that became more apparent as it went on, but yes, any sort of magic is a cheap plot cop-out.

It ain' misspell,  dis' how Tp4 actually is talk.


Writing a proper hand, that would be a deliberate misrepresentation of Tp4s output pattern.

After watching Hinterland a few weeks ago and enjoying the Welsh vibe just watched two series of Hidden. Even Welsher than Hinterland, as in some bits are in Welsh with subtitles. Good TV, excellent atmosphere and music.

The 2008 Jolie, McAvoy vehicle or some new show I’ve not heard of yet?

A Dark Song. Again. I have seen it about 15 to 20 times now and it doesn't get old. To me, it feels like a Ufomammut album, but in movie form.

It's likely to come out on 4K Bluray.  Buhh they have the HDR version available for streaming.

Watching Brooklyn 99 for the first time. It's a good background show, something you have going in the second monitor while you work. Some legitimately funny writing sometimes too. Love the Captain, Rosa is super hot, Gina is super annoying.

Also started s02 of What We Do In The Shadows. Still a great show so far.

It's weird how the blueprint for the modern sitcom has become what The Office did by writing and shooting them like reality shows.

Tiny Creatures on Netflix was not good imo. I don't understand the point of making a fake nature documentary and presenting it as real. It's all obviously staged and using aftereffects except where they are like throwing dirt on a scared mouse. Imposing this fake narrative on neutral entities like some are heroes and villains by setting up these staged events.

I am watching Spirit Blade Mountain. That is Chinese anime, watching it in english but I am curious enough to watch it in original, yep I am tryhard enough xd reading topics and threads about chinese language (like that https://translationreport.com/chinese-translation-services) so I want to learn Chinese language. That is the most spoken language in the world at that moment  :eek:
So just getting fun out of anime but also I can`t forget about self-development  :cool:

The new bill and ted,  I felt like they built up the song so much, it was near impossible to close the movie plot.   As if, they really needed to write the greatest song ever for the movie to make sense.

Recently saw the first and second season of Orphan Black, had anyone seen that one?
It's a sci-fi tv show about genetics with some drama, I quite liked the first two seasons!
Also, if anyone has similar show recommendations that would be nice:)

The Battlestar Galactica reboot was spectacular, without a doubt the best "re-" that has ever been produced.

I don't think that the quality remained consistent, from the time that they landed on the planet it never quite returned to its initial excellence.

Homelander is a piece of work to say the least, wish they released Season 2 all at once rather than episodically.  Now also waiting on the new season of Stranger Things to drop and hoping they fix the abrupt end to Doom Patrol.

Amazon really **** the bed with the Boys s02 ad campaign. It was EVERYWHERE and in very intrusive ways too, then they release the season one episode at the time. The ad campaign did not line up with the staggered release at all. Some marketing exec really **** the bed on this because they actually did their job and hyped people up, but didn't think out the consequences that they will just piss everyone off by giving them blue balls.

Just started Long Way Up

If you've never seen any of the Long Way series and you like travel stuff, check these out. The series portrays a heavy motorcycle theme which does domninate the first episode of each series but the bikes actually fade into the background really fast after the first episode. The scenes in Mongolia and Russia in Long Way Round were flat out amazing.

In Long Way Up Ewan McGreggor and Charlie Bormann are trying to ride electric motorcycles from the tip of South America up to California and I'm curious to see how they deal with the Darien Gap.
