Indian Summers on Acorn. Excellent costume drama set in 1930s India. Only one preachy Woke moment so far when an English character criticises the Indian teacher in the orphan school for having copies of The Secret Garden in and not the more appropriate Mahabharata.
Watched Made You Look: The True Story About Fake Art on Netflix. Brilliant documentary on the Knoedler gallery forgeries.
Bohemian Rhapsody is all about the plight and then flight of the Parsi.Oh okay - same series. It reinforces the fact that the colonies were a wild wild west for a pauper and peasant to remake themselves into a higher class without having 9 generations of Talbot or some other Anglo name going back to William the conqueror.
Also a bit sad about the Parsi people who fled Islam's takeover of Persia and were favoured by the British (or as a former work mate of mine says the Britishers) - reckon they're below 100k total population in India now.
line of duty has been great this season. only one more episode to go. they way they've been weaving this overarching narrative for 6 seasons is really fucking impressive. i wish american shows could do this shit.
it's Canadian. So Americans might like it like they do Schitt's Creek or Murdoch Mysteries for reasons unknown to Canadians.
Anyone catch ^?
I saw a story today that it has been renewed for another season or that it was a must watch on Netflix this month(I forget.) I looked and it was in my queue, but I never started the series.
