    Tonight I'm going to gamble 20 minutes of my life to see how well 'My family' has aged
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Immigration Nation (Netflix)

    Everyone should watch this actual and current horror story of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement doing raids on illegals in the US.
    It is quit shocking and repulsive to watch the attitudes of most of the people working for ICE.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    Just finished the first season of the Witcher. Earlier this evening, I asked my dad if he wanted to watch episode 2. He said no. So I turn on episode 8 in another room...and he joins me less than 20 seconds into the episode...and he stays for the whole thing. I had to do a quick summary of Yennefer and the Brotherhood, which provided enough context for him to understand the episode.

    And the episode was good!

    I liked the timeline fuckery, but it was a gimmick and should be phased out for S2. There should be another way to have an "anthology style" series without having to do 4D checkers.

    I read it somewhere that the timeline fuckery was the most negatively appreciated part of the 1st season. 2nd season will start with a recap & re-introduction and would be linear. The anthology part is basically done from the novels.

    It felt like a way to work around a slow build in a show that needed to grab people from the start. I liked it in theory but hope its the only time it happens. Would be better to see a theme and story arc connected to one timeline. Was cool not reading the books to get a backstory.

    I'd only played the third Witcher game, s I was excited about completely new stuff to me.

    Opening scene; Blaviken. We'll I guess I don't know what happens but I know it doesn't end well.

    It was a good series but the split time line was a bit hard to identify immediately at the start of a section.

    Hm, Agents of SHIELD is over. They didnt quite stick the landing, but it could have been worse. With all the cameos I was expecting Ward to pop up as well.

    Wonder who's (real life) kid that was.

    Seen the first episode that was released yesterday, I do like it. But I'm also a fan of this world.

    I wouldn't mind binging it. Are any streaming services offering it or would I have to do a torrent? I caught the odd episode back in the day when it was first broadcast.

    Apparently it's only on Hulu.

      Spoiler:
    Sorry, it's a weird way of writing "torrents"

    Didn't care for the first episode of Lovecraft Country. All very contrived and trying very hard. HPL would be turning in his grave over the heavy racial messaging, lol.
