The Stranger is great. I had to use subtitles as British English is a foreign language, but what a great plot.

As a reader I ALWAYS use subtitles. And am greatly disappointed when they are not available. They put a ton in the subtitles that is impossible to hear in the dialogs.

What Happened to Monday

Not normally the type of movie I'd choose to watch. But I am glad that I did!

A+!

I have finished 4 seasons of Breaking Bad. Mostly by having it on in the background while doing calculus or working out.

It is a fantastic show. Holy crap it's good. It makes me think of Dexter, except that what the protagonist is hiding is drugs instead of murder.

The Permanent Portfolio will be safe enough to walk away from and forget about completely only if it allows for more than just the problems and hazards that are obvious today. It will have to allow for all of the unforeseeable events of the next 5, 10, 15, or 20 years.

I gave every episode of every season my FULL attention. And, then went into Saul every season.

I had not watched any of either until last fall and winter. I devoured them quite quickly, watching many episodes in a sitting.

I first watched the movie, which made no sense to me because I had no background for it. But a few minutes after I watched the last episode of the last season I re-watched the movie. The second time around it made tons more sense.

I have a friend who watches the entirety of both Breaking Bad and Saul every winter.

Designated Survivor is just 24 and House of Cards mixed together into a single show.

Peaky Blinders is quite good. Someone sent me this really well done spoof of Tommy telling all his guys to self-isolate.

Killing Me Softly


Has a financial theme throughout it with the 2008 financial crisis playing in the background on TVs and radios.
