    Mm...I love Homeland (spiritual successor to 24). I d rate it a 9.0. My 10 is still Breaking Bad. Will watch season 8 soon via Hulu/ Showtime. The last episode is supposed to air this April. Hope they wrapped up shooting and the remaining episodes are in post production.

    Episode 6 is up but Homeland wasn’t the same without Peter fucking Quinn. And Saul Berenson being an enigma all the time is getting to be boring.

    Max has been there since Episode 1, Season 1. I never thought he’d last that long being just a minor character then. But he has evolved from a shy eavesdropper to a do-it-all surveillance-comm-tech operator. Yes, he’s also my new fave character.

    In Homeland, the antagonists have always been more interesting than the so-called protagonists.

    Watching Hillary. It's a 4-part series. Great explainer of the US' most loved/hated woman in history.

    The Platform, can be a perfect example on what we(might) experience now if people, especially those on top(wealthy), with power, on panic buying and they do not leave anything for the rest a chance to buy. Obviously.

    Now for some kick-assery after the lockdown. Mark the date. April 24th.

    Maybe get off those raging steam from self-quarantine. Or from neglect and apathy from powers that be. In any case, this will do.

    From a first-time feature-film director who is a multi-awarded stuntman and stunt choreographer, so we can rightfullly expect kick-ass action

    The concept is a good argument in favor of communism. I think it was mentioned by one of the characters as well. The problem is the ending, which after having the viewers endure the predicament, needed to have a clearer if not happier ending. Enjoyed it, but left an aftertaste of hopelessness, which is not the feeling I was looking for while being cooped up in the house.

    I find it compelling. The episode on DJT was the one that pulled me in. The one on the ex-Malaysian PM is mind-boggling. If it were the plot of a movie, you’d say it’s over the top.
