Watched a Star Trek TNG episode.
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.

Last week I saw The Greatest Showman.  Not great.
A good monarch is a treasure. A good politician is an oxymoron.

^My brother's been watching that one. Says it's great.
your brother is absolutely right.
My method of sniffing out good drama by the soundtrack is working incredibly well here. I've watched  season 4 eposide 6 (the last available) and it's every bit as good a Season 1 , eposode 1

Here's the opening scene of the fist episode:


and title credits ( with theme song by Nick Cave. Damn, That song is now disappointing all on it's own, it's so perfect here )

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.

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:

Like Black Mirror; some more than others. Have watched all the ones available on Netflix.
