  2. 'The Capture' thriller seems to be very relevant to the world we live in - a world of fake news.
    (I personally have lost faith in the Media in all its forms. I try to get to the facts and form my own opinion on things).

    The writer and director of this mini-series is, as far as I know, Ben Chanan. Judging by his name he's probably of israeli descent, but I'm not sure. Once they become famous they're all british, american, australian etc...

    1. I often wonder how will we fight for justice without being able to discern truth and truth is, as your country and mine know painfully well, dead. The future definitely does not look bright for humanity. The worst thing is that they are also changing historical truths to suit their purposes these days....

  3. This does feel like a foreshadow of what's to come in the future. Fake news runs amok, and you can't trust anyone because everyone is looking out for themselves without a care for anyone else. I also think our future does not look bright at all. We need a reset button, I think.

    1. They say that it is only a matter of time when CGI will be so perfected that they will be able to make false videos with it of your political enemies doing something nasty and then we won't know whether it is true or not, it creeps me out something terrible.

  4. Oh wow, this one sounds juicy! The plot is similar to Prison Break but with a lot more authenticity. I love me some Laura Haddock so that helps too. :)
