  1. JIGSAW is more like my thing. Jai Courtney looks familiar. Did you introduce him in other film or series before?

  2. So, it’s coming to PBS in December (80 more days). I have no problem with Passepartout being Black, since in the past he’s been played by Mexican and Chinese actors, but apparently, he’s not funny. Then, I love Leonie Benesch (I love her husband more) but why create a female character, when we have one and diverse in the real book (Hindu Mistress Aouda)? I thought they did not consider the story of her encounter with Phineas Fogg (who eventually marries her) woke/sensitive enough: Asian woman saved by white man, Asian woman rejecting her heritage, ect. but in IMDB I see she is there played by a Hindu actress and appears in five of the eight episodes. So why they are not promoting her? Why are they giving more camera and publicity to a German redhead? Thank you for adding me in FB.

    1. Because feminism is a part of woke agenda, so they had to put a headstrong female journalist in the cast as God forbid you should have just a male protagonist. Kinda like that horrid film with Eddie Redmayne flying a baloon in which they turned his partner into a female even though he was a male in reality and gave the role to Felicity Jones. Imagine how offensive that was to his family.
      Be welcome, glad you found me there :)

    2. It's why all this woke ideology is so full of contradictions, they are always stepping on each others toes. It's so childish!

    3. It will be the death of us! But some countries are hitting back, UK for example just brought a law which protects Britishness on their tellies. I don't know if it will mean that we won't get unsuitable actors playing their historical figures, probably not, but it will mean that the channels will have to have more British programmes the likes of their detective series and All Creatures Great and Small and such and less actors with American accents in their shows. Don't know how it will work in practice. I see the comments at US portals are negative in their superficiality of course, but I find it nice, my own country is also too open to US programmes and culture instead of protecting its own more.

    4. I’ll try to answer everything here, so we don’t have to dig into old entries. Since we are competing, when I got my first tellie (in 196) there was only ONE channel in my town (we got a second one in 1970). It was black and white, antenna on the roof that blew with ach storm, and no remote control. Moreover, the broadcasting started at 4pm and ended at midnight. Because on schooldays, our bedtime was at 8pm, we only got four-hour daily television ration. Kids today would die. Color TV came to Chile when I was already in the States in the late seventies.
      Talking about whatever passes for “American culture” today, I came in the mid 70s, left in the mid-90s, returned in 2016, and I can tell you whatever this ideology we live today is, it can’t be called American. Its just a trend based on European Marxism of the 60s kind, combined with what was once called in USA Radical Chic. Even Me too is based on stale feminism that we thought were passé like Simone de Beauvoir’s maxims combined with a fear of men that is positively Victorian. The only thing that is new about this wokeness is the fact that globalized internet spreads it to the entire world.
      That is one good piece of news you are giving me. I’m glad Britain is fighting back. I’d heard that some British universities are also exhibiting a backlash against this cultural imperialism. Yes, it is sad that our countries (and United States) are losing their cultural identity replacing it instead for something so confusing and flaky.
      Although Spanish television is totally and embarrassingly woke, the Castamar Bro was in the original novel. The author wanted to show how it was possible for a former slave to achieve social mobility in XVIII c Spain, but the adaptation made it more illogical. What was not in the novel were the Me-too speeches of the protagonist, the “dreams” of pursuing a career in domestic service (WTF) of some characters and the amount of free sex in a society that was under Inquisition surveillance.
      Amrita Achaia is not Hindu, she is half Nepalese and half Ukrainian, and was brought up in Norway! I liked her in Got so I guess I’ll put up with her, but I imagine she would be one of those actors that will be axed by the new law. You pointed out a great truth. It’s not the color of skin that bother us, it’s their lack of talent and miscasting. This enforced diversity works behind cameras as well. It reflects in poor scripts and poor editing

    5. I remember that those old black and white TVs had something called stabilizers, a box that would sit under the TV and stabilize the electricity stream or something like that LOL Of course there was no big need for remote when we had just a handful of channels. And yes I remember that programme was not non-stop, but just in the afternoons and evenings and at midnight you'd get the gray screen and white noise.
      Yes, I also read a couple of days ago that some of the universities have forbidden gender neutral words.
      The scripts will be getting worse, methinks, as the new generations lack in any kind of talent. Being raised to think they are already perfect they never bother to develop themselves much, so there really isn't much originality in them, just look at the music today, all mediocre teens, or even the film, with mildly boring types like Timothee Chalamet leading the business with their utter lack of charisma and any life in them. They are currently trying to convince us that Kristen Stewart is Oscar material for playing that vain sociopath Diana.

    6. He Hehe but we didn’t get a control remote until 1984. Mom thought the gadget would make us lazy, and she was right. Now I have three remote controls in my night table, one for the tv, one for the router and one for the air conditioning, when I run out of batteries I panic.
      Talking about panic, don’t get me started on Millenials and Z because I sound; like an old envious grumpy woman (I am), but before blaming them, I have to blame parents and universities. Between permissive parenthood and academic indoctrination, we are getting a generation of zombies who only respond to stimuli from professors or TikTok, and who cannot think for themselves.
      Indeed, Kirsten (and she’s not getting any younger) and dull Timothee symbolize the culture of this generation. But if European countries, starting with Britain, attempt to change the states of things, maybe there is still hope.

    7. Fingers crossed, but sadly it is not UK and Europe who dictate the trends in film and TV but USA. Just look at the way US views that evil idiot Megan Markle and dulltard Harry, they just have that superficial non-analytical mindset which reaches conclusions and makes opinions based on superficial usually highly biased motives.

    8. Forget about American made fiction. Hollywood is a basket case ad TV only cares about zombies and DC charcters. But I would like some improvement in HBO, Starz and Showtime in what refers to customers. And yes, please, in Netflix period pieces, but I think they are beyond legislation. Don’t get me started on the Sussex circus. Going back yo trends, more and more viewers are turning to European shows, but more viewers are hooked on Netflix also.

    9. I feel Netflix will lose a lot of customers if they don't bring tons of new shows very quickly as we talked about recently. They cannot depend just on Witcher and Last Kingdom. Especially as Amazon might kick their bums with Lord of the Rings next year.

  3. I'm all in on this one. You had me at Rufus Sewell!

    1. I'm more into Jai Me Some Courtney, but I wouldn't say no to RufRuf either.

    2. LOL, I wouldn't say I'm attracted to him, but he's one of the actors that I'll watch anything he's in b/c he's that talented.

    3. And he seems like a nice man too.

    4. I remember last year you posted the spooky series he was in. I don't recall the name, but I remember it scaring the crap out of me. He did such a great job in it that I was hiding under the covers once the light from the TV was turned off. lol

    5. It was that Agatha Christie series which turned out to be the dullest ever affair with the stupidest ending if there ever was one.

  4. Jigsaw will be one for Jason. He's always into those heist, scam, robbery type of shows and movies.

    1. I do kinda like heist movies, robbery not so much, though. Smooth and elegant without violence. We should probably come up with a heist next time you have a tornado over there.

    2. Oooh, I'm in. What do you want to heist?

    3. I was thinking tea, chocolate and home decor and maybe some fancy clothes too.

    4. Yes! Sounds like a plan. But maybe we should heist a little money too if we can so we can at least get us a nice house to put our other heisted goodies in.

    5. I can see the logic in that indeed.
