Spookily - I just got this book out of the library and started reading. Seems great so far - a lot of history and context.
I started this last night. This 6 part series follows the lives of several people living in Paris during the 2019 fire.
The diverse group includes several firemen/women, regular citizens dealing with life situations and some run of the mill Parisian riff-raff.
What I am not crazy about is some of the flashback scenes. It is watchable.
Will reserve rating until I complete.
all 3 seasons are on netflix.Due to fracturing of the streaming market and the arcane science of media distribution rights I haven't seen that.
no i had seen the first half of season 1 a while back. then over a few days i sped through s2 and into s3. i skip through a lot of the boring parts and most scenes with the gypsy mother and older son who creeped me the fuck out.You powered through that in one day? Attention span issues aside I found the need to read subtitles meant I had to actually look at the screen and therefore made slower progress than an English speaking show.
yeah she fucks someone in s3 and then just walks off never to be seen again.There were a few characters that mysteriously disappeared in the show including the Sara Monaschi character (she was born 1971 and had two kids by the way) and the Adriano sports radio DJ aka son of the old boss guy.
none of the ladies were attractive other than the ex wife of the politician and sara.4K video was not flattering for Angelica the gypsy princess and her arm hair but she seems to have cleaned it up in the second season.
This is a pretty good microcosm of why your political posts are such dogshit.Anyone up to date with Andor yet?
Maybe it is because of the Rogue One guy but I am trying to understand what is the difference between the rebels and the empire? There are decadent useless gits on both sides and both sides have the people who do the same despicable immoral dirty work.
Why struggle as part of the resistance on the outer fringes of nowhere when you can get a steady pay cheque and a dry cleaned uniform go with it? The Romance with a capital R of being part of the good guys is gone. Either that or I became a cynic.
Opposite opinions on all the above so this should be interesting.I watched 5 eps of The Peripheral on the plane today - fantastic show! I’m really liking this one.
I’ve struggled through a few Interview with a Vamps but it’s pretty dull.
Let the Right One In is still delivering.
Even after watching the first 6 or 7 episodes nothing is actually happening so far. There is no coherent plot line or story to latch on to as of yet.I’ll keep repeating that The Peripheral is another great show, but you really need to binge it - watching weekly installments makes it just too hard to keep up with.
I’m enjoying it quite a bit more than I thought I would but it’s a REAL slow burn. The prison episodes are great but then they lose the momentum with all the Mon Mothma stuff again. I think this week is the season finale.I'm struggling to keep up with Andor.
