    I liked this one as well. I thought Mara Rooney pulled off the Scottish accent pretty well but I'm no expert.

    I binged the entire first (and perhaps only) season of Upload, a show whose star dies unexpectedly and is "uploaded" to a virtual heaven. It's a comedy, but also a murder mystery with some light philosophical themes a la The Good Place. It grew on me as the show wore on. Only ten 30-minute episodes so not a major time suck.

    We watched everything but last episode. Second to last episode was so incredibly bad that I just can't bring myself to watch it. I think they went one season too long.

    I doubt the final episode would change your opinion. They're clearly hoping for renewal as nothing resolves in the final.

    Never Surrender, a 2019 documentary about the making of Galaxy Quest was very enjoyable. I loved the movie, so the doc held my interest throughout. The opening screenshot is a quote from David Mamet naming the movie as one of four perfect films--The Godfather was one of the other three.

    It was unavailable to stream for several years, but Downfall is now on Amazon Prime with no charge. It's a very good movie, and one that spawned innumerable video clips.

    Am I crazy or are you referring to Upload while Lebowski is referencing The Good Place? I found Upload quite enjoyable. I also liked The Good Place, but mostly Season 1 and especially the Sartre No Exit plot twist.

    We were both talking about Upload, which I liked more than did JL, but I didn't like the way they ended the first season, not to mention the fact that we won't see another episode, if ever, for a couple of years...

    I liked The Good Place more, and thought the series was outstanding,. It definitely had some lulls, but it ended nicely. I loved the Trolley Car episode and have watched it multiple times. I also thought the first episode was great.

    Nope. I was talking about The Good Place. Have not watched a single episode of Upload. Sorry for the confusion.

    PAC missed that JL bolded The Good Place in his initial post. I thought both of you were talking about TGP. :shrug:

    Yeah, I totally whiffed on that. When JL wrote the series was one season too long, I thought he was just being funny since Upload was only one season... Maybe if they'd let me out of the home occasionally my mind would be sharper....

    You want them to let you out of the home occasionally?

    Still got one episode left, but I've been enjoying Upload. I'm sure it will seem goofy in 10 years, but the future tech is kinda fun.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The First World War

    I watched the first episode (until falling asleep). Pretty interesting, in spite of how tired I was.

    The Balkan states apparently didn't like how old-school Emperor/King Franz Joseph I was. So, in protest, they assassinate the heir to the throne, who, unbeknownst to them, planned to run things much differently that his uncle did. Then, with Archduke Franz Ferdinand dead, Franz Joseph goes old-school on the Balkans in retribution. Franz Joseph died about two and a half years later. Had the Serb revolutionaries been more patient, things might have markedly improved under Ferdinand.

    I learned from the fart documentary that the oldest written joke in the world is a fart joke. It’s written 4000 years ago in ancient Sumerian. There are also ancient Japanese texts that discuss farting. The Dalai Lama even told a fart joke on TV.

    So, the fart documentary was sort of interesting, but not really worth a watch. I expected a good deal of fart humor and such, but they focused way too much time and attention on Mr. Methane, a professional flatulist.

    I did like the discussion with groups of men and women to get their different takes on farting. And I thought the historical information about the subject was interesting. But overall, I can't recommend this documentary. It would have been better if it had much more science, more history, more discussion about cultural norms, and much less Mr. Methane.

    Completely agree with you on this. This documentary could have been so much better. The author of the books sounded like he had a wealth of information, but didn't share that much. Also, we get it, people love a good fart joke, men and women look at farting differently, and kids REALLY think farting is funny, but I could do with more of the history of farting. They would dance around it like saying, "in some cultures you would be killed if you farted in front of the wrong people". Wow! That's cool, but when a did this happen and to whom. Soft pass.

    Exactly! Delving into things like that would have been so much more interesting. More of that and less of Phartman comics and Mr. Methane.

    Rocketman.

    I thought it would be a biopic along the lines of bohemian rhapsody.

    It was not a biopic along the lines of bohemian rhapsody.

    Fun show though. Certainly unique.
