"ZeroZeroZero" - 2019 Just started watching this one, very good... If you liked "Narcos" (especially the first 2 seasons) you'll like this..

Two good shows shot in Israel:

"Dig" - 2015 ...Wish this one got renewed for a second season
"Messiah" - 2020

Here's that movie by the way which isn't to be found anywhere, Trop de Bonheur.
I taped it in the 90s, then digitized that tape 10 years later. I had taped it on "long play", meaning low quality, so the digitization didn't go without asyncin some audio.
But its a perfect movie as far as Im concerned.
Ill probably end up removing it in a while.

Chernobyl was great. Even more fascinating since it is a real story.

It shows how people and certainly powerful people deal with problems of their own creation or that might affect their reputation. It certainly shows the way this plays out in the old Soviet system, but one can see this behavior with corporations, Western governments, and heck, in families.

It also shows how people do not deal with THE REAL (not in the Lacanian sense, but reality) because of their models of the world.

I kept thinking about 9/11, but even those who do not believe in anything classed as a conspiracy theory in the pejorative sense can the see pattern of denial when people deal with things they don't think are possible.

Someone just-recently asked me if Chernobyl is now safe to visit. A funny coincidence, imo. :-k

What a horrifying aftermath that disaster caused, and lives lost in the most awful of ways.

Experts believe the areas around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant will remain uninhabitable for at least 20,000 years. The figure 20,000 years apply to the area around the power plant itself. Areas around the exclusion zone are thought to be uninhabitable for least 3,000 years according to some experts.

And they could have prevented a lot of deaths. A lot. But they didn't want to lose face. And they couldn't believe what the experts were telling them. Even experts refused to listen to experts. Some very brave people risked their lives in all sorts of different ways to save people.

And one thing I learned was that it neatly led to an unimaginably large explosion that would have affected the whole world. Luckily (and on the back of three extremely brave men) they were able to prevent this.

Wikipedia

Midsomer Murders is a detective drama[1] set in modern-day England. The stories revolve around the efforts of Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby, and later his successor, cousin John Barnaby, to solve numerous murders that take place in the picturesque but deadly villages of the fictional county of Midsomer. The Barnabys have worked with several different sergeants throughout the run of the show: Detective Sergeant (DS) Gavin Troy (), DS Dan Scott (), DS Ben Jones (), DS Charlie Nelson () and DS Jamie Winter.


I’ve gone from watching American crime shows to British ones.. I found that the former had become far too gruesome, and the latter, of more quaint and devious storylines rather than shock and horror.

Yeah I left it up there fore a few weeks but took it down again.
I keep having a bad feeling having it up on my account. Im sure there is a reason they have tried to erase it from existence, Im expecting they would delete my account or something for copyright violation.

Dexter. Awesome. I think all the seasons are available on Netflix. (Can't remember if I already added this recommendation elsewhere.)
