amazon prime video

skirts and dresses for all

In this i got it deceptively (my blog) and decided to take a look .

Liked

  • non sjw s/f (my blog)- expanse (my blog)  – i am reading the books not an instant see but worth noting.
  • outlander (my blog) is something i will watch on free tv so ignored even if dangled with season 4 means a bit of a catch up – season three looks good.
  • mr robot – bit like the day job at times  – meh i would rather not critique it.
  • Lucifer (imdb tt4052886)  is interesting as broken families and mortals mix together. Season 2 is lacking in effects but devilishly fun i watched it.  Also it is notable for hollywood stealing Neil  Gaiman’s (my blog) work although i think another book of his (see below) and passing it off as free intellectual; property – so if you thought tv and film industries respect copyright think again.
  • american gods (my blog and already mentioned in lucifer) is artistic and a bit more sjw than i thought it was [its been a while since i read it[]  A lot slower than the book and much delayed by legal issues   Reminded me of true blood. I still admire Ian Mc Shane (my blog).  As i know the end it is a less desired see.
  • As a philip k dick (my blog) book reader – i suppose i could  mention the man in the high castle which won a gong sometime in the 1960’s.   Looks well done if perhaps slow compared with the book.

Aspects not liked.

  • subscription plus model for films – cheaper if you plan ahead and not go for laziness.
  • the interface on the television (adverts)
  • moving between tv and pc information is inconsistent.
  • keeps crashing firefox
  • gigabytes of data for video.

Original wise Jeremy Clarkson’s grand tour was fun  and has a high production value.   Anybody else who makes car things is so screwed the bbc apparently fired 1000 people after they lost this so sjw values dont pay…

So no it is not as good as netflix at the present time  Outlander is much nicer without adverts (i can record it on tv),  the expanse has issues being the people who made it took liberties with the books so that is also a non starter.

Films  amazon seem willing to pay more, or split the money made as an extra purchase.   Those will be covered separately.

No i will not subscribe to prime.  But as a freebie it could be considered  in the future.  The free delivery aspect is null as i have not bought anything else from amazon economics wise.

another look at Caprica, a parable of now?

Family

Family

Caprica (my blog) was the bastard offspring of battlestar galactica and did not fare well despite the branding of successful bsg a suggestion of the vd channel (my blog) rather than a look a robots which Humans did a lot better ten or so years later*.

Caprica was a thing that pushed boundaries mormon marriages (and i assume retarded kids as well my blog), religous terrorists, gay mafia types, lots of soap like content and hints of the beginning of bsg which to be honest who cares about that.

It reminds me of now in the news, not a show about robots.  Battlestar is pretty much perfect but caprica missed most of the time.

*time to stop rescheduling this post

Lesbian science fiction whoo!

Science fiction is a much maligned genre until now although whether you can call ethnic politics in hollywood the winner is a something time will tell and the format just a means to be in with the cool kids.

it [sf] is hard to do correctly but with the sjw’s/npc’s runing star wars, star trek and marvel among other things recently feeling the need to make it queer and  wth sjw film professionals and fans fantasizing about lesbian sex in boxes and between superheroes and companions is it any wonder Michael Burnham sucks in std (my blog not a sexually transmitted disease).

I don’t care if Burnham fucks ewoks** or not  but i have to give an example here but there is me  thinking science fiction should be thoughtful, and all that and here is s/f becoming something only sold to lesbians for watching.   Keep that segment in mind i have statistics below,

Its kind of fascinating that childrens tv, or superheroes are adultised as such, one could argue that the left wing are anti men/trannies and pro women only  – up the mary sues or else..

I do hope all the lesbians (a sub group of 4% of americans in statistics i found)  are seeing this science fiction.    I do not think Disney where makers of ‘adult’ films but  they know better than i do.  The other 96% of americans do not matter think disney.  I  do hope that logic pays out for disney.

There have been gay characters in s/f and minorities too in the past and they had good episodes as well but that is not important now sexual orientation is it.

** might be good ?

Netflix final thoughts for now

An early  gripe to start with was devices do not sync -‘fixed’ now that drm works (my blog)

Overall there is some impressive stuff on netflix – however quite a few copycat items say a live action version of sao (my blog) so unique to me is a problem but not yours.

Swearing can be a problem in some seasons there is bleeping, and latter one none probably not netflix error but you know consistency would be nice. Nudity has some issues even in made by netflix productions – swinging willies and butt holes seem to be pixelated so somebody at netflix got butthurt by and are not anti censorship.

The prompts for are you still watching are annoying – binged mo mo salon (run time 15 minutes) and rick & morty which also has a short run time.

Despite that.Netflix I find is good value compared to renting dvds which is something i do occasionally and was an good comparison as to value.   Film wise  the quality and quantity has diminished but as i have not been to a cinema in years i find the netflix series better on the whole

I cannot blame netflix for that but many of the things i like cable tv hates and so perhaps it best that even if cable tv will cancel brilliant shows  they will be moved to the highest bidder and there streaming platform i can read the books (my blog).

tube recycle those 1’s and 0’s

Ipv6 (my blog) is a big fail

Since releases seem to get longer and longer in time and everybpdy else now wants to be them i would remind you that getting apps (my blog) will even be a problem  for me as well.

I am taking a break from netflix and will probably resubscribe once i get better ipv6 and  see if it works so be prepared for a new compliant i have not been watching much from netflix ether recently.

I probably have some  pending reviews scheduled after all they do not go off.

What do you think ?

Either way netflix lost me as a must have purchase.

getting off this planet is bloody hard

The First imdb: tt7412482 not a bank] is yet another whoopie where pretending to going to mars yet again (my blog) and again (my blog) instead of being on pay tv, it was on fta  television.

It mainly concentrated on a drug addict, accountants, psychologists (my blog) , and soap opera – so even Neil Armstrong types are fucked up.

Oh well dont worry you  are screwed up as well apparently.

happy

Happy is on netflix (my blog)) and outrageous. The story is an ex cop becomes an assassin who has an unknown daughter it is violent and bonkers with the aid of the childs imaginary friend a blue horse who discovers the adult world.

It is funny and dark and works well together

The defenders and the punisher on netflix

Is on netlfix (my blog) and stars your favourite unknown superheroes .

The defenders

It is a short season and even in television once you get past the beginning the combined power does wane but it is fun and while child friendly more than Jessica Jones (my blog) and also cancelled which might be the effect of Disney now owning it.   I have yet to work up any enthusiasm to get through any full second/third season of many of stars listed in this.

I notice they reused a location from kings (my blog) which is no doubt a very well designed place.

4/5 bananas

The Punisher

If you remember we met him  in Daredevil series 2 and had quite a body count was a b story to the above.. Comrade Frank is a useful means to explore war and ptsd in soldiers so perhaps this exploration of ethics is novel.

As an unknown to most character this is a welcome change even if a bit heavy going.

Once again i got a bit bored and as reality (my blog) is more exciting i still have no idea if the heroes won.  But i am sure they did.

unratable.

Navy recruiting (in the navy we want you…)

Once again (my blog) the royal navy being a little more savvy than the army recruiting had yet another tv series which looks like it is a better recruiting advert than the army with its diversity targets and yes we are friendly to suicide bombers approach i suppose it beats buying hand grenades..

After all conscription (my blog) was more for the army not the navy or air force it is an interesting read that book i have linked to .   If your looking for lyrics (not here) for that song.  I refuse to link to video sites since they age quickly.

This was also evident by the ethnic minorities and  females the media people honed in on or where told to feature – anybody over 25 or white was mostly ignored unless your the lady captain gives you a measure of the reason why the media professionals where aboard.

Being a shortage of boats* (my blog) i understood that even becoming a navy recruit was difficult until recently and there where more admirals than sea going boats and if you cannot do it it is generally ignored as a career and as more experienced ranks leave you can guess why they did what they did  now with the media company as these new boats coming online.

Saudi Arabia – Not pro womens rights

The boat is wondering about the black sea and the mediterranean opposed to whatever navies usually used to do**.

Overall it is a gentile look at the royal navy who it seems lost out when afganistan (my blog) was getting all the attention for all the wrong reasons once again.  Quite what this says about the politicians is one you can also muse on***,

Lets hope this gender bias and stuff seen here does not hurt the navy like it did with the county armies (pals)[wikipedia link not here]  in britian during the 1914-1918 war some time in the future.

Overall you can look at it in two ways a make work scheme or nation states policing themselves.

*money spent on afganistan instead **speed boat chasing in the carribean  *** short termism

the failed sport advertisement on the bbc

Fernando Zylberberg (.ar) shaves his legs and wears a skirt

Bananas (me) just turned on the security office television (my blog) here in the zoo and the default channel being ‘1’ had celebrities dancing for about twelve minutes**.

I have no idea who these people on the television are  but while waiting for the security team to decide on something to watch they said one of them is a famous cricketer who quit, unfortunately the broadcaster could not prove this as the show did not want to pay for rights of the sports for the television coverage that three people and two thirds of dog* saw at 2am live because it was live at the bottom of the world.

It is an interesting view that one broadcaster wont bother to show something if they did not pony up to pay the sports broadcast fee of a clip and if only one  channel can show x doing it there is no benefit to any other channel showing it.

The security office once equipped with tea and us apes with banana found this to be of no interest and selected something else to watch.

seems appropriate

Sport worries about its audience and young players the so called next generation and if your football (soccer to the yanks) you have no problems with who gets the tv rights, but if your rugby, or cricket they are known of but more vague in the minds of the public.

Test time  – name me three badminton professionals (no searching)  times up – Point made

I dont think dancing celebrities on tv has managed to get a football player to do it when i asked the security team they being more wise here than me.  So while the sport ‘has been’ may have been good at it it was no advertisement (free) for the sport and will  not be attracting children to the sport.

I have no issues with that as i hate sport and write this with no actual interest in the ballroom or sports who sell tv rights seem very stupid and the television companies cunning to which it could be a clever way to annoy sporty people who might be rich now but forget that if subscribers do not pay the ability of certain broadcasters to pay what they do diminishes .

I was surprised to notice that american football and its bend the knee protests meant it was on free to air television which i or the security team here have no interest in at all paid or otherwise – sports can fail.

I thanked Charlie (my blog) for the banana and left.

*66% ** normal people cannot dance according to the bbc.
