Not SBS but ABC iView

 

Frank Zappa on ABC iView - Rewind to 1973

 

Frank Zappa made a guest appearance on Monday Conference in 1973, fielding questions from the public about the rock revolution and its influence on youth, sex, drug, and political cultures.

At times it seemed questions were being asked without looking to understand any answers Frank gave.

Very insightful and I found it fun too.

De Dag (The Day). A Belgian thriller about a bank heist/ hostage situation. Each two episodes look at the situation from the police and then the robbers /hostages perspective over the same time frame. I think there are 10 or 12 episodes in all.

Just finished Hierro, set on one of the Canary Islands. Volcanic lunar landscapes. Recommended.

EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG
WWW.SBS.COM.AU

{{ meta.description }}

<Candela, an unconventional judge with character, is sent to the remotest possible posting, El Hierro, an island that is full of peculiar characteristics, where she doesn’t quite fit in. As soon as she arrives, she must face a murder case. The victim is Fran, a young man who was going to get married on that very day. Everything seems to suggest the culprit is Díaz, Fran’s boss and father of the bride, a shady local businessman who had served sentence for murder as a young man. <

Just watched the final episode last night.  Very well done but I thought it left too many hanging endings.  Are they making a second series?

https://www.geektown.co.uk/2019/11/01/sky-renews-mark-strong-fronted-series-temple-for-season-2/

< Sky One and NOW TV will be returning to Temple, as the UK broadcaster announces the original drama starring Mark Strong, Daniel Mays and Carice Van Houten has been renewed for a 2nd Season.

Produced by Hera Pictures, the series tells the story of Daniel Milton (Mark Strong), a respected surgeon who finds himself drawn into the underground world of doomsday preppers and bank robbers when he tries to save his wife’s life, by setting up an illicit clinic with obsessive yet surprisingly resourceful misfit Lee (Daniel Mays), in the vast network of tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London. They are soon joined by Anna (Carice Van Houten), a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel’s and fugitive bank-robber Jamie (Tobi King-Bakare). Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries as a husband, friend and doctor are challenged. >

We are watching Modus. There are two series. 

Thoroughly  enjoyed Series 1- set in Sweden. 

We are on episode 3 of series 2. The US President visits Sweden. It looks like they have written  the part for Hilary  🤣

I enjoyed Modus.  I'm now about half way through the second series of Wayward Pines.  Some aspects are quite thought provoking while others are just unanswered questions.

My wife and I just binge watched - well over 3 days _ "Face to face"

It is just incredible !!!  Possibly the very best Nordic Noir we have watched. Totally gripping and you can not get any darker then this.

On Becoming a God in Central Florida.

Enjoyed the black comedy that cuts to the bone of The American Dream. Showcases the mentality that ensnares so many in the on-selling business models based on multi level marketing (read pyramid schemes)  Kirsten Dunst does a great job. I felt it bogged down a bit mid way through, but overall a great series.

But hey, maybe Im just a stinker thinker!

Hi All,

 

Started watching Years and Years, particularly that they have Trump elected for a second term and on the last few days of his Presidency decides to drop a nuclear bomb on the Chinese, man-made island in the Pacific.

 

Also watching Wisting, a Scandinavian police drama about an American serial killer who moves to Norway, and upon finding a body, the FBI becomes involved as DNA matches a colleague who formerly worked with the serial killer in the US of A.

Just finished Hierro and found it disappointing as how the story panned out and it’s characters. Not that interesting to be honest.

 

6 episodes in Face To Face and that’s a lot more gripping and binge worthy! Only 22 minutes each episode though. 
 

Temple was excellent.

A Ken Burns doco about Jack Johnson - the best heavyweight boxer in the world 1904 - 1915.

It sounds interesting but Ken Burns lost me after the Jazz Series, which hardly touched on a lot of the Jazz I like.

This (Jack Johnson doco) is much better. Also Dust Bowl (Oklahoma) is some of Ken's best work. In my book one of the best doco makers of the late 20th century.

Zero Zero Zero: SBS

 

It's good, grim but riveting!

https://www.sbs.com.au/guide/article/2020/05/14/zerozerozero-brings-intense-family-drama-world-narcos

< ZeroZeroZero was co-created by filmmaker Stefano Sollima, a director who has deservedly received a lot of attention for his dark Italian crime shows Gomorrah, Romanzo Criminale and the US movie Sicario: Day of the Soldado. His work has been compared in the past to that of Narcos director José Padilha (who also directed the tense Brazilian police film Elite Squad and its sequel). Both filmmakers have produced work with similarly murky examinations of the ties between the police and criminals, and they share a similar filming style, favouring visceral moments that highlight the intensity of violent criminal acts.

Sollima blends together all the expectations and tropes we’ve seen in other drug enforcement movies and TV shows before, and layers in a sense of guttural humanity to it. As a viewer you never have time to think too much about what you’re watching – Sollima wants you to feel it, to relate to the intensity and danger of every situation, and just react. >
