A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

I watched Birthmarked on Netflix last night & thought it was good. On New Year's day I watched Day of the Dolphin, not sure what to expect. The talking dolphins seemed silly at first but by the end I'd bought into the concept and the farewell scene was really sad.

Mr. Robot on USA/ Amazon Prime is pretty choice. Saw Man in the High Castle and it was ok. Mr. Robot is a little bit like Lost, but with cooler themes. Man in the High Castle is going to jump the shark soon maybe. Thoughts?

Ooooh, thank you PKNY! Will watch that sometime after Trouble's show. Oh, and we went to see 'The Favourite' on New Year's Day, partly b/c of the convo here last week - very good i thought. Olivia Colman is *amazing*

Does season 3 of Mr. Robot go anywhere or have any purpose? Season 1 seemed like it was maybe going to go somewhere, but after that I started to feel like they were just jerking us around. It *does* remind me of Lost, but only in the worst ways.

Avatar Thu. 1/3/19 10:49am northguineahills:

@WN: I read the Man in the High Castle a few years before the series, and although the show really extrapolates quite a bit (the book is maybe 150 pages), I still enjoy it. I haven't watched the most recent season of Mr Robot, But I enjoyed the first two.

The best thing I've seen recently is the five-and-a-quarter-hour Japanese film Happy Hour, from 2010, which is currently screening on Mubi UK. I finally got round to watching Wenders' Pina too, and I really like the TV show Bored to Death, which I picked up for a pittance on DVD.

Mr Robot is a pretty entertaining show still, but it seems to turn into a conspiracy theory that China is plotting to take over the entire world, instead of focusing on the corporate criminals in the US. Gets a little ridiculous, but I'll still watch the last season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/3/19 10:58am melinda:

@Adrian I really liked Bored to Death too, I have a couple of DVDs of it left to watch. First watched it several years ago and was pleasantly surprised by the use of Young Marble Giants tunes.

@Melinda Jonathan Ames was doing a reading in London with Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott, who wrote Swan Song (which is terrific). He was really funny in the reading; my wife has read two of his books and was laughing so much. Bored to Death is really sweet, it reminds me of Bakersfield PD, a great funny police series with Giancarlo Esposito.

@Wild Neil -- yeah the WR character was interesting at first but its just over the top how one person has so much power over everyone. This "time travel" or whatever reveal better be damn good, like "wait three seasons to find out" good. :P But yeah, the series lost the punch when it stopped focusing on e-corp

@Listener Robert - Kingston is a little later, set up by Stuyvesant as "Wiltwyck", settled around 1654 . Those street names are the English names, not super creative ones.

There seems to be a bigger company called Backstage Productions which may be the reason why BSP has dropped that moniker, but my kids did Youth theatre there back in the day and that's what the name was then...morphing into more of a club later.

I just looked at the Wikipedia entry for DUH, and I was pretty sure the one I remembered was from the 1980s, being interviewed on Pat Duncan's show, or maybe Frank O'Toole's, where when they were asked, "What does `DUH' stand for?" they'd answer, "Mostly, it's political. We stand for...." etc. So not this ad hoc thing from 1990. But then, my memory could be way off.

@PW-watch, all the characters are just those remembered by Elliot (remember this is a memory play, right?) and they are all just attending his funeral. Heh! Just kidding.

@Wild Neil --- hahah, it will probably end up being something like that.

There's a great clip of the Honeycombs on Youtube, from one of those odd "Here's a bunch of bands on a soundstage" films from the '60s. I caught it on TCM a few years ago, and their performance made my jaw drop (despite the... unfortunate presence of Jimmy Savile introducing).

Was just talking about ToTPs the other day with someone and we wondered if they could just CGI Savile out with some digitally simulated presenter.

@PW-I guess its just about enjoying the ride. The characters and dialog are pretty good. The ideas are really pretty amazing actually.

abrigado, Trouble!

@tadpoles That's it! Even after the wave of sickly revelations about men in show-biz, the stuff Savile did stands out as really, singularly horrific.
