The highlight reel of last weekends 24 Hours of LeMans.
Last night: "Julie," an old 1956 thriller with Doris Day and Louis Jourdan.
Apparently it's the movie that originated the cliche of a stewardess having to land a passenger jet after the pilots are disabled.
Finally finished the Librarians. Sad to see the show end. Still the final season was good and almost stand alone with some of the stories being self contained in each episode. The way it ended with Nicole though, didn't expect that.
Again what happened to that bit I think in season 2 where Eve was underwater with some lady in the lake kind of thing, Anyone know?
As I recall, the Ladies in the Lake later tried to recruit Cassandra, who declined their offer, but, yeah, that plot thread kinda fell by the wayside.
Ooh, HOUSE OF WAX with Vincent Price is on TCM tonight. I surely have it on DVD somewhere, but still . . . ..
Catching up with Agents of SHIELD (Season Six, Episode Five) then possibly Emerald City.
Last night, Luther. Today, Endeavour.
Going to watch tonight
The Unwanted - The secret Windrush files
Last night: "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms." Vintage Ray Harryhausen goodness.
My wife and I have been gunning our way through Schitt's Creek. We're really enjoying it.
Started the third & final season of Jessica Jones on Netflix tonight.
Watching 'AKA You're Welcome', second episode of the season, now.
Debating watching Ashes To Ashes season 1 with Keeley Hawes
I'll admit it, I saw the simple trailer where you just hear a geiger counter and you see the word Chernobyl appear, and thought "that's going to make for a depressing show". But my partner recorded the series, and boy am I glad she did!
The quotes sum it up, to me it's the best show I've watched this year. If you havent seen it already, WATCH IT!
It should win a lot of awards, and if it doesnt, shame. It could have been longer than 5 episodes, but the five are very powerful. Amazing show!
After I'd watched it all, found that Russia is to make its own version of the events!
As for last night, I stumbled across the first episode of "Xena: Warrior Princess" on 4Music of all channels! I'd forgotten how gorgeous Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor were in this series!
Presumably, the Russian version will trot out the ridiculous conspiracy theory that the CIA was somehow responsible for the disaster. In reality, it's amazing how many nuclear reactor accidents have come about because the human operators turned off or circumvented various automatic safety measures that would have prevented the accident from happening. Too often it seems that the wrong people were left in control.
Why I don't think the CIA responsible let's just remember that just because the west and more so USA say one thing, it's not a conspiracy theory to question. Russiagate is a conspiracy theory. I'm still called a conspiracy theorist for stating the fact that Mrs. Clinton cheated in 2016 primary.
So I would love to see the Russian side of history.
I'd love to see movies with Russian superheros saving the world.
Highlander: The Raven. I saw it on Amazon Prime Video and decided to give it a shot.
I've heard of at least one that may fit the bill, but haven't seen it. It's called Guardians and I know it has seen some release outside of Russia (at least on dvd. It may be on Netflix in some countries too, but its'n showing in the UK when I did a quick search)
I'm watching Mile 22 later.
I'll have to go find info on that.
I guess in the movie The Darkest Hour we had Russian heros with the army guys fighting the aliens. I loved that movie, but pity they didn't explore the aliens more.
Watched some Jessica Jones and then Colbert.
