Sort of conflicted at the moment. I watched the last episode of Season Four "The Affair."
► Show Spoiler
There will be a Season Five, but it will be sadly lacking without Allison. I did a little research after the fact (I'm glad I didn't do it earlier as I would have known they were writing Allison out). Showtime said her character had run its course. Really? Why haven't any of the others? I also read that Ruth Wilson was paid less than her male co-star, and there's a lot of "no commenting" about that. I had noticed that Dominic West got top billing when Ruth Wilson should have had it.

I guess I'll watch Season Five, but only to see how they wrap up Allison's story. Damn.

I watched Deadwind, a Finnish crime series (English subtitles) newly on Netflix. I thought it was excellent. Has to do with energy and environment, corporate malfeasance, as well as more personal abuses. Well-written, well-acted. I was very ready for Season 2 right after Season 1, but alas, it's only now being written. Highly recommended by me :thumbs:

:think: I enjoyed the first season, but skipped the second one due to all the pans it received. So I'm in a bit of a "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, we don't get fooled again" situation on this one.

Oh: Working my through the latest seasons of OITNB, Better Call Saul, and Arrested Development.

Binge watching MOM with Alison Janney. A comedy that also therapeutic. About a mother and grown daughter who both attend daily A.A. meetings and try to straighten out their impoverished lives.

Was it worth it? I'm very interested in watching it, but don't want to develop a heart condition.

Review of the documentary:
The fragility of any democratic system is exposed once public opinion is turned against it, courtesy of falsified information transmitted by foreign trolls masquerading as local voices to gullible voters. “It’s not about the size of their economy or their military,” Saakashvili notes. “It’s about their state of mind.”
:snippity:
Trump is portrayed as an ideal target for Russian coercion, with his big money, flip-flopping morals and financial situation made vulnerable when his doomed casino violated anti-money laundering regulations. The removal of pro-Ukrainian, anti-Russian language from Trump’s RNC speech causes McCain, with a humorless smile, to speculate, “Why would the Republican party remove a provision that would help a people who were invaded and slaughtered defend themselves? Interesting…” Lording over this dizzying web of corruption is Semion Mogilevich, a Russian crime boss as cartoonish a villain as Trump himself, whose claim that he’s merely a businessman “responding to the will of the people” is not a far cry from that of Al Capone, as portrayed by Robert De Niro in “The Untouchables.” The direct server link between Trump Tower and Russia’s Alfa Bank, coupled with Deutsch Bank’s support of Trump—not to mention the Russian ties of numerous Trump advocates, including Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani—further strengthen the case that our president has been caught red-handed.

Conspicuously missing from the talking heads assembled by Bryan is Senator Bernie Sanders, whose own presidential campaign fell prey to Russian bots aiming to divide the electorate through trumped-up allegations. :snippity:

Yes, it was worth it. Prepare to feel horrified and angry...and I do mean, blood boiling angry. Most of us already know what happened with the Russian interference and so forth, but to watch it unfold in the movie is very disturbing.

"Active Measures" spells out exactly how much danger our country is in.

Active Measures is worth watching, imo, as a refresher course. Painful as it might be, watch it.

The Craig Unger book I’m reading, House of Putin, House of Trump, seems to be either a companion piece or the jumping off point for the documentary. Lots of frightening details...

The thing that still irks me is how much of all of this was known and out there before the election. I can think of two journalists, David Cay Johnson and Wayne Barrett, who’ve been writing about him and his money laundering escapades, his mob ties, his every venal act, for as long as he’s been attention whore.

Which (of the) media conglomerate owner(s) refused to let his peeps write about it?

I have. It's very grim. Also trite, often over the top and formulaic in the worst possible soap-opera sense. Dallas without the social conscience.

I also couldn't stop watching it. I can't wait for season 2.

Ozark - OMG! I haven't been this vested in a show since Breaking Bad.

BTW, I lived at the Lake of the Ozarks for seven years, lakefront, mm 31. This looks nothing like the Lake of the Ozarks (it's shot in Georgia) but that detracts nothing from the show.
Off Topic
One of these days, I'll tell the story of my next-door neighbor who tried to adverse possession my property so he could have my driveway. He didn't know which bitch he was dealing with. (hint: it involved a huge flock of plastic pink flamingos, eventually each one dressed in costume. I had Vegas Elvis, bikers, aliens... I'll never forget the day his lawyer called my lawyer to complain "Now the flamingos HAVE CLOTHES ON!!")

He moved soon after.

I loved Jack Ryan so much that I watched it all myself (I'm married to a crazy person who gets up at 5:20 AM for no good reason, so by 9:30 PM, he's passed out)! I especially loved the cinematography in the French Alps episode.
