    This is a brilliant series, in every way!

    So. It seems there may be a nationwide stop to the customs agents' computer system. Everyone coming into the country is standing in long, endless lines at JFK, Dulles, etc., as customs agents process by hand. Seems to be a hack of some kind. He's destroying in one way and another every damned system in the country. Nothing but a smoking ruin is going to be left.

    He's an ignorant, insane sadistic narcissist, who is suffering from a host of mental and emotional disorders that drive him to the destruction of the entire world and everything in it, while believing that everyone loves him and admires him as the hero par excellence, and those who might possible disagree with him should be killed. See, also: "How 'world leaders' destroyed the global economy." https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/15/opinion/recession-stock-market.html? ~~~~~~~ Nearly two years ago, Cuba began to do serious planning for the rising sea levels, as we see in this article from January, 2018, but it had been making plans and doing studies before that. "Cuba embarks on a 100-year plan to protect itself from climate change" https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/01/cuba-embarks-100-year-plan-protect-itself-climate-change? Of course, the initial work included fund-raising from nations well disposed to the efforts. And this was before the global white supremacist and destruction of everything unleashed by the US election of 2016.

    Everywhere in my city, where latinx workers have been omnipresent, including China Town, and the omnipresent Korean produce and convenience stores, are "HELP WANTED!!!!!!" signs. These are places where we never saw public signs for help wanted. It was all word of mouth, presumably, which was all that was needed.

    The hate-filled, white supremacist etc. wreckage of everything goes back to Gamergate. "How an Online Mob Created a Playbook for a Culture War" https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/15/opinion/what-is-gamergate.html It's interactive and has several contributors. Also -- the jittery animated graphics framing the text make it hard on the eyes -- ugly painful and distracting. Ugh. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Plus how 'world leaders' destroyed the global economy. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/15/opinion/recession-stock-market.html? ~~~~~~~~~ Frank Rich agrees.

  7. New development in the amazilla Blood and Treasure CBS (single) season prime streaming: NOW the pay-for-veiw, final episode, is available again, without a fee. And >!< -- it is the HD version. What is going on?
  8. Amazilla really PUSHES the pay for view program, rather than providing content that is worth watching. They have so much as described above -- a season or two, then pay for the others. Midsomer Murders is one of those. I read this AM on Deadline that Amazon Prime streaming had been going down for the last 2 - 3 days. Help lines etc. were all swamped. Nobody knows a thing about what was happening or going on.

  11. No, because I had watched the 11th episode and expected to watch 12 -- and there it was, the notification that I had to pay for it. Mildly amusing, but trust me, Blood and Treasure wasn't at all worth paying for the final episode.
  12. Here's a new, corrupt, gouging strategy from amazllia prime, that I, at least, haven't encountered previously -- but there's not a lot to watch on amazon prime anyway. I picked up on a CBS series titled Blood and Treasure (terrible title, just for starters -- can never remember it). It was reliably, mildly entertaining, in the mode of White Collar, but still, global location porn, if you know what I mean, and just fine for the cooking dinner plus wine time of the day. Blood and Treasure is advertised all the way through as an amazon prime show, i.e., amazon prime subscribers get to watch it without paying anything more than the subscription. Guess what? Get to the final episode, episode 12, and suddenly one must pay to see it. OK. WTF, amazilla?????? Think this is going to happen with their big gambles on Tolkien, etc. -- at a certain point, suddenly subscribers who have come for this specifically, at the crucial points, are going to be withheld those crucial episodes unless they pay MORE?

    A big part of the global economic condition is that the obscenely wealthy aren't investing in anything except real estate, and making the global housing crisis ever worse.

    Season 2, Sacred Games, is up on netflix right now. I think it was released at noon today.

    Not only are the characters the most unattractive in terms of the personalities and who they are. As well as being 100% unsympathetic on the inside -- on the outside they are about the most unattractive people ever seen on a television set centering the luxe life of the obscenely wealthy. They can't even dress right. My god the characters have terrible clothes sense. It's all so appropriate for who these disgusting people are that being portrayed on screen. There are NO redeeming traits or actions on the part of a single one of them. This is reflected also in the very choppy unpleasant camera work too. It's gotta take some guts, maybe? to make a series this unpleasant. Or, maybe not, as the critics seem to love it. I actually don't love it. I may well not watch it anymore. There's nothing to be got out of it, yanno? Not even entertainment as they are so unattached to the world that the rest of live in, 24/7. Lust for power and envy of others are the only motivations -- plus, of course, the cruelties they can so casually dish out to the rest of us.
