    I’m glad you mentioned this! I enjoyed “Fisk” too and binge watched it. It’s not brilliant but it’s quite entertaining.


    I watched “Stonehouse “ a three part limited series about the English member of parliament, who brought down the Wilson regime. It was mediocre.

    After many years I watched “Raise the Red Lanterns “a classic Chinese tale. It is reputed to be visually stunning, and it was. It is a peek into a world that no longer exists, ancient, aristocratic Chinese families. It is about the young fourth wife of a rich man and intrigue within that large family.

    Well, we're in August, leaves are starting to fall, and it hasn't been a movie that I'm really excited to see yet. There's some I'll see, Napolean, Dune Part Two, The Equalizer 3, those I'll see.

    I watched "I Used to be Famous" on Netflix a couple of weeks ago. It's about a 1980s or 90s rockstar who is trying to get back into the game. it's a quiet, tender movie.

    Has anyone see the documentary Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie? I've been seeing ads for it and wondering about it.

    I've not streamed much of interest for a while, but I did recently enjoy the new movie, The Burial. Based on true events. Some of the main issues dealt with race inequality. I can get an overload of the topic at times, but it was done well. It is a court room type drama of corporate take overs of family run funeral homes in the 1990's. My father was in the funeral home business' about then and I remember his stories of the pressures to sell out to mega corporations. I generally like Tommy Lee Jones in most anything.

    “All the Light We Cannot See” has been turned into a TV series, and has an 8 out of 10 rating. That is super high.

    This beautiful book is one I have not read. I have it on my Kindle app. I just have been putting it off and putting it off, and now perhaps I can watch the television adaptation. Should I? I feel that I “should “read the novel yet who is giving me these directives? And are they really the boss of me? I guess the Reading Police would prefer that I read it rather than watch it first.

    I thought the TV folks did a phenomenal job with “the Queen’s gambit “which is a novel I’ve loved for decades, do I have faith this could be a good adaptation.

    I can't imagine "All the Light..." TV series being an equal match for the book. It's perhaps the best general interest book I've read in years. I'm still looking forward to the series at the right time.

    I especially enjoy the new Ken Burns series on the buffalo. It's a story told many times, but his visuals in photos, art, and videos are always top of the line.
