    Very intense show. The Israelis do a great job at portraying their view of the situation, but I doubt many Arabs would agree. It's a complicated and often confusing show for non Middle Easterners to watch, especially for those with no Arabic/Hebrew reference. The captions tell us what they are saying, but is it an Arab or a Jew? An Israeli Arab, or a West Bank Arab? Druze or Arab?

    Unorthodox is on my watch list. Have to get through Fauda (#3) and Bosch first.

    Finally found time to start watching an 11 DVD set on American Wars 1770-2018.. 40 hours the case says.,.. I am through #4... surprised how much I have forgotten..and never knew... much more informative about the origin and evolution of war than your standard history book.

    How did I miss this?!
    I just discovered a decade old six-part documentary on Netflix about . . . Monty Python!

    Monty Python: Almost the Truth (Lawyers Cut)

    It's fascinating. I had no idea about all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans and skullduggery.
    It's a must-see for Python fans, but then again, they have probably already seen it.

    I highly recommend Peyton's Places. 20 episodes - 10 well-spent hours by me and the missus. His very entertaining retrospective of the first 100 years of the NFL.

    I could name quite a few but gh wouldn't like it.

    Anybody watch last season of Ray Donovan? I hear they cancelled the show after ending it with a cliff hanger? I wasn't too pleased they moved it to New York, and was debating watching it this season. But I have a free month of SHO...

    Took SHOtime's offer of a free month and am binging "Homeland." Entertaining. Ludicrous, but entertaining. So many RUFK moments.
