I liked the first episode, but should have been a movie rather than a series. There are indeed lulz to be had, but also dead horses to be beaten.

A bit brutal. Can't wait until the lead character gets whacked. Or maybe he did get whacked and this is all a nightmare he's having in his final moments, I dunno.

Peacemaker

I was not expecting to like it, but I made it through the first episode and it wasn't completely terrible. By the last episode of the first season, I was really enjoying it.

They were playing music that I haven't heard since high school.

The last episode was quite epic, but a few things happened in the final scene that threw me.
Spoiler:
Who was the bug he was feeding? I thought they were all dead. Why wasn't the bug trying to murder him?

What was up with his father sitting with him and the flashback of Eagly dropping the helmet in the wrong place. Don't fucking tell me his dad was trying to protect him because that's totally fucked up.

Who the hell is the little dude in the green suit. They never explained that dude.

Ozark became tedious--kept hoping for everyone to get whacked. So we're now watching The Witcher. Seems worthy. Figured out the various out-of-order chronology at least.

I watched the first season of Ozark. Too dark for my taste. I realized I wasn't enjoying it. Didn't have enough of an emotional connection to any of the characters to care.

Breaking Bad was better. Better Call Saul, too.

The Witcher is fun.

Fwiw, it doesn’t evoke medieval times. It is like modern California in a Wiccan mud pit.

Few things, lately.

Inspector Lewis: Plocie procedural, takes place in Oxford. Pretty well acted. Occasional Deus ex machina. Has enough episodes to binge. Sequel to Inspector Morse.

Killing Eve: pretty fun. I really have a soft spot for psychotic, murderous chicks. Think Alice Morgan.

Gadget Man with Steven Fry and later Richard Ayode. Lighter than air.

I'm about 1/3rd through season 2. It's about a 13 year old boy who was raised in a cult, and he doesn't understand social norms outside of his cult. He also has no concept of what is moral/ethical/legal
in the outside world.

We've already been through 2 rounds of "she's not the real mother" and we don't know who the real father is, but the boy looks Jewish, and they love to zoom in on his frightened and bewildered face. Every time they do, I can't help thinking....

They took it...........the tip of penis.........tore it right off with................teeth.

It's ok, Julian. It's called a Brisk, and it's part of your culture. A Rabbi removes the foreskin from your penis when you're a baby. It's normal.

New show on HBO-Max Tokyo Vice, based on a book by the same name. Based on true story of the author (Jake Adelstein) moving from America to Japan and working for a Tokyo newspaper as a crime reporter. Very interesting look into life in Japan in the 1990's but particularly focused on the "underworld", Yakuza, and such. I understand it deviated a little from the book but seems realistic enough and well done so far.

It is a very interesting book. He makes some 面白い claims that I will not spoil. The claims against a particular yakuza boss are true.

It is a very [Interesting. – Ed.] good book.

I tried to watch Death on the Nile but it was a play masquerading as movie determined to make you sad, for no particular reason.

There was also no sense of historical detail. While the below scene is pliable in the 1937 (the year this movie is set in) it would be unlikely in a London club/restaurant.

The scenes that are set on the steamer are better set, and perhaps Covid played a role, but no one forced them to release this movie. It's just meh.

Agatha Christie is a miss for me in general.

Though I did quite like the Asimov detective stories he tried to write in Christie style.

Well, we had one during the signing of the Declaration of Independence which explained why you lot are all a bunch of sodomites.

You can see the photograph evidence on the back of the $2 bill!

https://theweeklychallenger.com/wp-cont ... ahbzb8.png

Interesting article on it: The Weekly Challenger
Regarding stupid ideas for money – the $2 bill also has an etching of a "Founding Father" who looks like he cannot decide whether his fart is going to be wet – a "Big Book of FAIL" I have – You are ALL in IT!1!!! HA!HA!Haha . . . heh – has one devoted to the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin.

Chapter was drawn by Gahan Wilson. Awesome.

For one, Americans do not carry change like Brit-Peoples did at the time. There were dollar coins, but they were big and were mostly presents to unworthy brats.

Ike was on them.

I like Ike.

Where was I? Okay, so it would not be as big. They made it the same size as a quarter.

Yup.

Even you lot knew to make "the Maggie" a thicker size that no one, not even the Proctor fishing around the boy's pants in Eton, would mistake for a thru'pence or like a 20D thing.

Along with that problem there really are no good pictures of SBA. So an artist created a likeness and, apparently, feminists deemed it "too pretty."

So they made her ugly, or as one critic noted, "she looks like the Wicked Witch of the West!"

The government, once they minted the necessary shit-ton, tried to force people to use them. If you made the mistake of trying to get change in a post office, guess what you got! Aside from gonorrhea.

They were otherwise unusable. Vendors hated them since they looked like quarters. Customers hated them, because they would mistake them for quarters, businesses would refuse them, and you could not actually use them in machines that were not some vanity construction you found at an amusement park.

Or you could accidentally use them in a machine that took quarters.

Apparently, there are still the shit-ton of them in storage.

Wibble.

Gibson were selling electric guitars in 1937 in the UK.

Electric exit signs were common in pre-war UK cinemas and clubs.

Stage lighting? Your google-fu is weak.

Sidney Poitier still winning and you missed the most obvious.





Woman with electric guitar? 1937. Does not know her limits.

Yes I agreed that all those things existed in 1937 London, I just doubt it was all in one club, like that, in London. It felt inauthentic.
