Sour Grapes is a really good doc just put on Netflix (US at least), for anyone who liked Somme or is interested in wine/rich people getting conned.

Got it on my watch list but not got round to it yet. I like the premise of it though.

Watched the documentary on there about the lad that was sent down for being the 'mastermind' behind the Silk Road. Really interesting and opened up some serious ethical questions about how far governments will go to ensure that they get their result.

Aye the 'breakthrough' on the case was really shady but he made so many poor decisions and mistakes that could have easily been avoided. Read the transcripts a while back where he was trying to order the hits and it was painfully obvious he was getting scammed :lol:

Still enjoying Designated Survivor.  Utter nonsense though.  I've found perspectives from both sides of the spectrum, and some think it's wishy washy liberal s****, and they in turn think it's dangerous right wing desensitising.  Anyone else want to weigh in?

Watched the first few episodes, but haven't watched since the election. Wounds are too fresh. :lol:

If you're into your food I'd really recommend Chef's Table.

You and I are definitely of one mind when it comes to Netflix documentaries. :lol:

Catch Chef's Table France yet?

I was wondering if this was any good. Thankfully I respect your food-related opinions and recommendations, so it'll go on my list.

I haven't yet but it's on my watch list. Is it as good as Series 1?

Have you read Silk Road by Eileen Ormsby? I've heard it's a decent read on the whole thing.

3 episodes in. Loving it.

Was actually hoping it might fill the void after Westworld finishes but I can see me finishing this tonight.

Finished 3%, absolutely loved it.

One or two moments that may be considered predictable, cliched or contrived, but never ridiculous and overall a rather beautiful piece.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

Some of the acting at times seemed a little bit weak, but I have to make an allowance for my own interpretation of the subtuitles.

Aye, just finished watching it. Only put it on for something family friendly to watch while the parents were visiting but actually quite enjoyed it. Thought John Lithgow was brilliant as Churchill.

Just been watching a documentary about a group of guys who train wild horses and travel from Mexico to Canada with them in order to encourage ranchers to train wild horses instead breeding their own.

Anyway one of the guys was quite argumentative, and half a mile from the end he quit just to spite everyone else, because it was important for them to finish together.

So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Onto episode 5 now, and after four relatively high octane and tense episodes, there's some great poignant back story which explains a lot about one of the key characters. Not sure what others will make of it but I like this show a lot.

Is it foreign muck?
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Netflix made but in Portuguese. Watching the dubbed English version with subbies.
