Just been watching Supergirl. Meh.
It’s great! Why meh?
I think it is meh for me because I haven't watched it since the beginning. So I'm seeing her with all these supportive tech people and wondering how she got them. I'll probably watch some more. Maybe.

Supportive tech people?
Um, the people who know she's Supergirl and help her with high tech computers and gadgetry.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the old film. I didn’t know there was a new one.

Watched two episodes of Black Mirror. Interesting.
ooh yes!  i watched a couple of episodes of that.
interesting, thought-provoking. depressing.
right up my street!
I wanted to watch the whole series but it was too late to see the whole thing without paying.
the depressing aspect was beginning to get to me, mind.

The two i saw were both rather depressing. I was left wondering why I should watch more.
Well, i suppose the same reason why one should read books like 1984 and Fahrenheit 451? ( noticed some stikingly smilar themes in Black Mirror)
Then again, six stand-alone episodes might have been overdoing it.   :dunno:

I didn't think either of the two I saw was as good, though. In the end, the first one, where the PM is forced to have sex with a pig, was utterly pointless. Well made, sure, exciting, sure, but ultimately I was left wondering what the point was.

Similarly, I had problems with the second one. A pedal-powered future where people live in cubicles with obligatory TV programming? Again, exciting and well made but far-fetched and ultimately pointless.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Watched David Letterman interview Obama, yesterday. Interesting and well made. Couldn't help but miss Obama. He was a better president in his worst moments than Trump can ever hope to be.

I have seen the film too, a long time ago.

The Supergirl I was talking about was the newish series on Netflix. Actually I don't know how new it is. Just seems new to me.

Forced to have...you mean like our former PM, David Cameron???

Oh, no, my mistake. He was not forced to fuck a pig. He just did it.

Finished David and Lisa and watched Babette's Feast.

Watched the Star Trek Discovery season #1 finale. Remain unconvinced.
