I am still upset over this. It's not as if I had never heard of this evil. I had read quite a bit about it over the years. But the documentary hit me harder. Way harder. These fuckers led a coup and every goddamn politician in DC knows it.

I also watched The Family. The first two episodes were pretty much similar to the book. The last three or four were new information, more in depth.

There is definitely a Deep State, and it is The Family.

It is as depressing as it comes, but I would highly recommend it.

I totally agree I had already also known about many of the things in the documentary. My major takeaway is that this is the Deep State the republicans are screaming about and they are the major culprits. That said, there are many Democrats also involved and it appears to be an open secret to everyone.

Trackdown with Robert Culp, the Pueblo Kid episode. Oh my, that is one very young Michael Landon as the guest star :lovestruck:
Young Michael Landon was gorgeous, wasn't he? He had a scholarship to USC (had the year's high school record for javelin throw), but tore his shoulder and had to drop out. But he still had that body!

(I'm actually going to Carson City / Virginia City next week to celebrate Bonanza's 60th anniversary with some Bonanza friends. I'm a Bonanza nerd.)
We recently watched an episode of Dead or Alive (old western with Steve McQueen) and a very young Michael Landon was on that (episode). The show was a big snore, but I still sat down and watched it.

Hulu has several seasons of Myth Busters, so we're binging on that. I have a big nerd crush on Adam Savage. Also, his Savage Builds (on the Science Channel) was good, at least the first 3-4 episodes. Then it petered out. I may have already posted that here. If so, apologies.

If not, check out at least the first episode where he builds an functioning Iron Man suit. Not a costume. He used powered titanium and a 3D printer. This version of the suit he builds is one of Stark's first prototypes, and it's bullet-proof, bomb-proof and it flies. Yes, you read that right. It flies, although Savage wasn't skilled enough to maneuver it without killing himself so it was flown by the guy who invented the flying suit Savage adapted to his build (flight is achieved via jet packs on his arms and back)

Here's a link to a behind-the-scenes video. It's really kewl.

I have a few dvds of past MBs bug need to collect more. If the Sci Channel holds true to form this December, they will play every episode this during then end of December. Unfortunately, a church music job at Advent/Christmas time, a regular job man and that selling need to sleep, keeps me from watching the whole thing. My DVR does not have enough space for all episodes, and already has about 8 episodes recorded.

1975's "Two's Company" is on Amazon Prime -- hadn't heard of it, it's Elaine Stritch in London as a writer with a Jeeves-like butler. They are hilarious. Really fun show and looks like YouTube has some of the episodes too (they did 4 seasons of 6 shows). Fun theme song.

Thanks for the tip on this. I've been wanting something to get hooked on. I didn't have it on Netflix, but I found it on Amazon Prime/Sundance. :thumbs:

Put Netflix Unbelievable on your must watch list. Stunning, awesome, totally engrossing. Eight one hour episodes on subject matter that usually can't be taken even in small doses. If you like police procedurals at all, you will like this show.

For quick fun, Here's S3E8 of "Two's Company"... Two members of Parliament come over and one is a SOCIALIST! This sets the butler off, who doesn't consider himself working class. From 1978! Talking about Margaret Thatcher and the House of Commons. At one point Elaine Stritch says:

Well it's the same thing in America, I mean if you're a Democrat you don't dig the Republicans and if you're a Republican you don't dig the Democrats --
That's show business."

Felt very timely. The world has sure made progress in 40 years :lol:

S3, Ep8

Dorothy has two Members of Parliament as guests and Robert's class prejudice comes to the surface.

Watching this now. I am halfway through. Really thought-provoking. Rights and Protections for women have certainly improved, but we have so, so far to go. :(

Another vote for "The Good Place". Season four is about to start (broadcast, not on Netflix) so ABC(?) has released season three to Netflix and Netflix is pushing it. I had never watched it but I binged the first three seasons over the last few days and I'm ready for a fourth. Wonderful, funny, sweet.

I've been watching "Land of the Lustrous" on Amazon. I am used to watching anime that are "based on a series of light novels". This one seems to be based on a series of light drug induced psychotic episodes. Girls made of living gems are hunted by Buddhist gods from the moon. It's really weird and charming at the same time. Or there is "Dororo", if you insist on watching a classic.

Have you ever noticed in similar shows, they investigate the MURDER that started with a rape, they barely touch that aspect, but this show places the emphasis on the rape. Could have something to do with all the white men that didn't star, produce, and direct it. Maybe. I'm kinda thinkin.
