    Any 'must-see' TV ?

    https://www.nydailynews.com/snyde/ny-john-cho-injured-set-cowboy-bebop-20191020-n5ffppyx7vanbjz6lpp2gqiree-story.html John Cho injury on ‘Cowboy Bebop’ set expected to halt production for seven to nine months Production for the Netflix series “Cowboy Bebop” will reportedly be put on hold for a while after star John Cho suffered a knee injury on set. Cho is set to have surgery after getting hurt while taking part in a stunt during filming in New Zealand, Variety reported, citing a source. Production for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the Japanese 1990s cartoon series is expected to go on a seven-to-nine month hiatus in the aftermath of the accident, according to Variety. Cho, 47, is reportedly back in Los Angeles, where the surgery will take place. - The original is one of my favorite series but I do not have high hopes for this Netflix version.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Withdrawing from the region puts the Kurds in danger and is a risk to US security. It's a gift for Erdogan and Assad who want control there but not for us.

    EDITORIAL: Andrew Scheer for prime minister

    I disagree with his stance on drugs (marijuana), abortion and various social issues. I also feel he hasn't done enough for the environment, though in that regard Scheer is also much worse. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2019/04/kinder-morgan-trans-mountain-pipeline-resistance

    EDITORIAL: Andrew Scheer for prime minister

    I dislike Trudeau's policies more. The worst thing about Scheer to me though is his insane neocon foreign policy and remarks about Iran. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/andrew-scheer-foreign-policy-speech-1.5126144 The article also mentions he also suggests leaving China for "other trade partners." Well Trump tried just that and look at it...

    Double Indemnity Query

    I'm not sure if you're joking but it is him in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."

    EDITORIAL: Andrew Scheer for prime minister

    Scheer's proposals sans the economic ones and pro-Israel/ neocon foreign policy, seem preferable.

    Martin Scorsese says Marvel movies are 'not cinema'

    https://news.yahoo.com/coppola-backs-scorsese-row-over-marvel-films-173112180.html Coppola backs Scorsese in row over Marvel films Lyon (AFP) - Francis Ford Coppola jumped into a controversy over the Marvel superhero movies Saturday, not just backing fellow director Martin Scorsese's critique of the films but denouncing them as "despicable". Earlier this month Scorsese, director of classics such as "Taxi Driver" and "Goodfellas", described the Marvel universe films as more theme parks than cinema, even if they were well made. His remarks made waves across social media for days, as fans of his work and the Marvel hits such as the Avengers films, argued the merits.

    Films in 2019

    https://jacobitemag.com/2019/10/16/bastard-moves/ Arthur Fleck is a clown who’s not in on the joke. He is the representative for someone incapable of mapping the totality of political relations surrounding him to become a complicit but powerless figurehead for a bastard politics of resentment, guided and organized by others who remain in the shadow: Joker is a psychopolitical study of the useful idiot.

    The Exorcist Conventional?

    People can be antagonistic and angry for no reason. Your contributions are always appreciated here, Larry.

    the big question

    You can watch TCM on YouTube if you have an account but I'm not sure how it works.
