asian anti corruption television shows

Being an ape i once read about a tv drama from china about corruption which was oddly tolerated by the single party political class in China and it was deemed a hit by locals who only see what the communist party think best.

Professor here in the zoo was telling us apes of South Korean series called stranger (imdb: tt6461346) which he only knew was from there by the local cars driven.

Its good since i do not usually like korean television (my blog) that much suffering from pretty people and an odd reality this has a production quality that means it has non of those faults if they are pretty then i did not notice it.

A future corruption might well be the winter Olympics (my blog) in south Korea happening 2018 after all these sporty types are famous for it.

Stranger is on netflix (my blog)

Quiting dr who

Bananas in the Falklands has decided to quit blogging about dr who (my blog) and watching it for reasons that it serves other interests rather than entertain and i have no objection to multi racial lesbian couples travelling replacing a man in police box although most of us have no idea what a police box is but if your a sjw then its probably a sign of facist (my blog) oppression..

Now dr who should be of universal appeal with monsters, can rather than cannot attitude, and the brutal honest truth now and then but instead it is something else to those who manage it and do not pay for it.

I would guess that the bbc will ultimately cancel the series  but not without giving it many many chances.  It certainly will not be sold to Saudi Arabian t& Pakistan elevision with its latest star in charge of the facist box..

If dr who was a period costume drama rather than genre then i guess none of this would be happening.

So as somebody who is engaged entertaining depressed armadillos (not here) today i will not miss it or bother to save it (my blog) or catch up with it (my blog).

See you all tomorrow.

Netflix tv series

Television series is an area where netflix (my blog) shines being longer** and have a panache for as i am not fan of superhero films and rarely visit a cinema i think they made a good call . Being late to the party you may have seen these.  That is not my problem

The Expanse (two series)

imdb:tt3230854 is well done despite being a polish venereal disease product who usually commissioned sharks with laser beams and wrestlers in there not too recent past. Its science fiction without the retard commissioner who thinks sharks with laser beams is s/f,or fake boxing.

The problem is indicated that they have had to shunt it elsewhere to other than the crap cable channel it was designated for and is a sign of the times.

I have an issue with the screen typography since i sit too far away to distinguish who is who.  However if your drm forces me to watch this via a tv opposed to say a laptop then that’s a design flaw.

Its a worthwhile see although i can wait another two years to see the next season. In book form this (my blog) is quite similar – rather slow.

5/5 bananas


imdb: tt2431438 is the Wachowski’s (my blog) doing there gender stiff. I am on the fence on that series so if you want to see strong females doing stuff then you know where to go.   In six months i have yet to get past 15 minutes…

Jennifer Jones

imdb: tt2357547 a is comic book thing that as somebody who could not care about super heroes is watchable and is longer than ‘basic cable’ running time.  I may not get the meta actors and there shared universe thing but despite being over long it makes a point about heroes.  It has a dark knight Christopher Nolan vibe so there’s no pandering to children here.

4/5 bananas.

Designated survivor

imdb: tt5296406 has that bloke who been in a lot of rubbish pay tv (he who saves the world in a week one day at a time – not seen*), it is battlestar galactica like in concept minus the spaceships.  That probably should piss somebody off in snobby tv land.- something also a bit boring after Trump as president.

Daredevil (two series)

imdb: tt3322312 is generally better than the Ben Affeck film although there be lots of friends from super hero universe in this too.   The Russians and Frank dialog NEEDS CLOSED CAPTIONS or otherwise its mumble mumble mumble, nobody else seems to suffer from mumblings of the Russians

3/5 bananas

The oa

Is a series that took me three months to get through one episode.  Eventually the mundane became compelling and so even though it is a hard start i did better than one mentioned above.#

5/5 bananas – great cast

*his dad is the better actor **provided there made for netflix not bought from elsewhere

More netflix documentaries

Continuing on from here (my blog) These are things i watched all the way through

randy bisexual priest

the keepers

imdb tt6792200 is about Baltimore (my blog) and deals with catholics and there need for murder and rape.  It apparently goes further to state government with fellow travellers along for the ride.

5/5 bananas

Get Me Roger Stone

imdb:tt6714534 is like one of those bbc documentaries about political fear.  It is well worth a see.   The man is a genius..

5/5 bananas

If you like disaster stories then command and control  by eric schlosser (my blog) which i have read is an interesting view if your not into reading.

Nice to see some the of people on film although i found it a it over dramatic and the words felt better.

Some of the agenda documentaries on netflix i find i have issues with for instance there is one about press freedom.  Quite how tabliod click bait web journalism is news is a point i am hard pressed to validate.  They seem also forget that Snowdens files (my blog) where soon dropped by the msm, and comrade Murduch’s family empire (my blog) seems to nowhere near there radar.

The presses love of Hillary Clinton is another example of bias so before censorship is claimed there is a very strong view from the press that there already pro government and the people they like.

From the trailer i saw i quickly came to the conclusion that one should not buy on ebay or use paypal.  Newspapers can change hands.


Korean likeable television on netflix

On netflix (my blog) these are not south korean films (my blog)

momo salon

If you where blind you assume that this short duration form (imdb: 80116687) might be something the French made but you would be wrong but it refrains from the usual south korean beautiful stereotype most of the koeran tv i have seen seems to cast and dials it back.

Light but likeable

4/5 bananas


star trek discovery is a disaster, prelude to axnar looked the better fan made show.

Star Trek latest incarnation Discovery is a bit of a disaster imho with Americans paying over the odds for it.   That is cbs first error but as an non american not my problem.

Does this mean netflix international becomes the metric deemed successful tv series – not sure Hollywood will approve of that.  Think on that.

Prelude to Axnar looked better – even if it was on sticky copyright ground.

youtube which was shut down by cds/paramount.ssince the fans appeaar to do star trek better than jj abrams who might have had the cast* but rebooted and failed in film.

First up my criticisms of st:d are:

  • an angry vulcan human [woah]
  • women*women*women [sjw]
  • redesigned klingons [$]
  • um did you see that youtube video i linked too?
  • Why are cbs doing the Tom Paris [voyager] thing?
  • Replacement ships [more voyager] syndrome
  • rushed

It felt like a bad star trek film** [hint jj abrams at the helm] rather than a tv series.  So it feels like paramount/cbs are screwing it up aand getting netflix to pay for it.  I look forward to seeing the cbs executive who makes the netflix demograhic a thing justifiable.

Many insiders wont like that.

Having seen the first two (second was 38 minutes) long it appears that 12 minutes of adverts can be inserted by others the same reduced running time as st:v. which saw the reduction from 45 minutes to 38 minutes.

Somehow i fear netflix got conned by cbs.

I am still waiting for a tv show – not an excuse for jj abrams to make lost profit on him failing to do star trek right.

0 bananas.

*until Chekov was killed by a jeep. ** even i have not seen the last yet

the state

imdb: tt0130421 and a drama is about deash although mtv’s decision to go sjw mode probably means many of there presenters would happily go live in islamic state land [as funded by Saudi Arabia] who make something with the same name which i did not know until i started bashing this out.

The drama follows four ‘british’ islam believers who burn passports and do the thing perhaps more radically than this chap (my blog) did historically but that is progress. To say these people are innocent but idiots is clearly not true as getting there is convoluted.   Destruction of telecoms is also a choice so they most definitely made a choice

It kind of reminds me of the handmaids tale (my blog) and as i recorded all four episodes it was a distraction free view process. The women’s side of things make those females protagonists look retarded in believing, and the men as bullet magnets but i could have told you that to start with.

Appearing that deash’ is no longer a valid state or something the msm dont want to report on without an army in front of them so either this is a propaganda thing delayed for free tv or a reflection on the Saudi Arabian failed experiment that is ‘is’ is up for debate.

Perhaps in thirty years time those still alive ‘is/deash’ non saudi fighters will suffer the consequences of not being Saudi born like the bloke mentioned above in the link if history should decide to repeat itself.

It’s ending is enigmatic.if not contradictory with the females apparently doing stuff that only the men where seen doing. I think it needed more time to make sense but got Islam in a nutshell and it’s saudi paymasters.

I liked it’s portrayal of the religion (my blog)

some additions to Japanese netflix

From here (my blog)


imdb: tt5301958 Manzai is slightly reminiscent of Rakgugo (my blog) if less formal not quite western stand up .   A bit of a slog and sometimes funny although quite hard to know when at times.

A story of comedians which comes from a manga* is comedy trying to be unfunny and i imagine quite hard to do. Despite that it has moments of profoundness.

5/5 bananas


imdb: tt6574146 is a japan film anime and rather well done. Stylistic and thought provoking.

5/5 bananas

Knights of Sidonia

imdb: 70301578 is an interesting take on ideas but set in space, a series its format in netflix sucks so expect a lot of fast forwarding reading the subtitles from a distance is a problem as white text on a white background is a problem and is not a bananas problem.

4/5 bananas

As an anime there are two seasons of if and

*ask your mummy what manga is.
