      Basil Rathbone = Sean Connery.

      Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey = Daniel Craig.

      Love em all.

          • We'll watch Ozark 4 after we finish the second (and last) year of For All Mankind, an alt-history series premised on the Russians getting to the moon before the US. So far it's excellent. mrs. hammy loves it tons more than movies such as The Right Stuff & Apollo 13 because we know how those stories end before we watch; since For All Mankind is all fiction there is a ton more tension involved.

              Jane Campion dissects a five minute scene of the movie. It shows all the unconscious, barely seen nuances of a movie, which critics love but which escape the average viewer.

                Given the nature of the interpersonal dynamics of the story, and the film-making itself, I'd guess that almost all of the target audience missed very little of the 'nuance' (which was pretty heavy-handed in that scene).

                    • Just finished binge watching IRIS, a 20 episode Korean secret service series. Madly in love with the main female operatives.

                      To show how unbiased Ian, one North Korean, the other South Korean.

                        • My wife is home sick so on Prime I saw that they have Sanford and Son...and we took the dive. 8 episodes in:

                          Wow!!! I hadn't seen this since I was a kid. Oh, man, it's so funny and Redd Foxx is an absolute genius. I couldn't believe he's only 49 during the first season!

                          I saw a review describing Lamont as "long-suffering." So true.

                          Seeing it through adult eyes gives me a whole new appreciation. It's also reminding me of Seinfeld in this regard: so many future stars of other movies or shows keep popping up in episodes. It was such a great showcase for underserved black and Hispanic actors of the 70s.

                          Also refreshing is how certain topics are handled head-on instead of being tiptoed around or ignored outright.

                          A. Ester and Grady haven't showed up yet, and I eagerly anticipate that. I have great, now 40+ year old memories of their interactions with Fred.

                          I remember as a kid thinking how cool Lamont was with his 70s clothes, hair, mustache and his ladies. He still holds up pretty well, although now I can see how at times he was bumbling and or thwarted by Fred.

                          Best part is I haven't heard my wife laugh out loud at a sitcom like this in years.

                          Also that's got to be a top-3 theme song. Such great use of bass,organ, harmonica. Quincy Jones.

                              Ditto!. My wife and I watched an episode of a British Detective series called "Vera." It's up to season 11. We've seen all of them. I inadvertently started Season 1 episode 1 and kept remarking about how young the main character (Brenda Blethyn) looked, and how her partner seemed different. At about 45 minutes we got the Kaching moment. Being old ain't for sissies.

                              • Stumbled across Archive81 on Netflix. A limited series, but interesting. By Episode 5 I was getting an old school Rosemary's Baby vibe.
