I'm watching some sort German horror show on Netflix. It seems pretty good, but it reminded me of a couple things.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5753856/

I'm only halfway through the 2nd episode, but I noticed that the Germans have an outsize fear of nuclear power generation.

I distinctly remember that when Japan had a nuclear accident a few years ago, it was Germany that decided to ban nuclear power for good. No other country reacted that way. (A few kooks in the US freaked out). In Japan itself, it made a lot of people want to ban nuclear power, but even Japan seems to be less traumatized by it than Germany. Is Germany prone to major earthquakes or tsunamis like Japan is? Why do they have to ban nuclear power?

Anyway, that's not really relevant to the TV show, which seems to be decent enough. Like there's a scary scene where you see that radiation symbol and it's all very ominous, with scary music and stuff. And while it's too early to say, I get the sense that the nuclear power people might be the bad guys here.

There's no postin' Humanities threads in the Puzzle section!

Every week you get a new show. You put the new show on top of the Humanities section, the top show on the bottom, and the bottom show you promote to irritate Lister.

Any man who promotes the wrong show spends a night in the box!

I tried to watch the first episode but they talked funny.

there were clear words at the bottom but my eyesight ain't what it used to be. I put on NCIS.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I'm still liking this show by the way.

Boss I'm sorry for putting dirt in your ditch. I'd take it out again if only I had a shovel. Think you could ask Pyrrho to take it out for me? He has a shovel I think.

Anyway, there's a good scene near the end of episode 3.
