In the television world, Starz is casting for its new sf thriller series COUNTERPART which already has two 10 episodes season ordered!

    1. I watched the second one recently and it was a tad bit too long, thought it would never end :)))

    2. But, was it good? I'll put it on my ipad and keep in on in the background as I am doing the household chores, so if it takes too long that's alright.

    3. it was nice, but it really does not need to last two hours or more... it did have lovely Indian choreographies and mob dances :) which I kinda liked, and Judi and Maggie are always nice, but I did feel asleep a few times especially during Richard Gere scenes :)
