I'm currently watching Orphan Black. I've come to realize I like brunettes more than blonds.

I really enjoyed Orphan Black. Yes, it's a little soapy, but the incredible performances by Tatiana Maslany are fantastic. Each character is unique and distinct. It's a real tour de force.

Re Topic: : Currently watching.....

I was checking out PC cases thanks to the video from SoM a couple of posts above when I stumbled on this video about new SSD technology when I saw this case. I have been trying to identify so please help me out here with the brand/make/model :D

It's from the Netflix series "Love, Death + Robots". It's pretty decent :up:

Love, Death + Robots is fucking amazing. I especially liked the episode with the 3 robots traveling the apocalyptic future. Had me in stitches.

I just started watching this TV show about this family whose kid was pushed out of a tower and got crippled and his father goes to work for the king and has to leave home but it turns out it's not kosher and he finds out the king's kids aren's his but his wife's brother's and it all turns sour. Oh and there's also this blonde girl who married this bulky dude and got giant eggs as a wedding present. Kinda weird all so I don't think I'm gonna continue with the second season. Probably gonna get cancelled halfway through anyway.

It's worth watching... gets better as time goes on. Probably a good idea to stop around season 7 lol.

Re: Currently watching.....

A TV series only 3 episodes in called Timeless.

Hmm, reading the Wiki, I could be watching season 2 as there's a SONY Pictures in the intro... Nah, checked, I am watching season 1, just viewed Ep3.

I love sci-fi and all those time travel paradox problems adding twists to story-lines. This is interesting enough but has left me a little cold. Guess I'll wait an episode or 2 more before deciding to leave on the cutting room floor.

That turned out better than I expected and I didn't expect much. Right from the start the lead actress put me off as unbelievable but she sorta grows into her role better as the seasons progress I guess.

Yes, Timeless mentioned a few posts up is getting better so I will stick with it a while longer.

Re: Currently watching.....Chimerica

This one is one to watch if you get the chance. Very interesting to the 4th and final episode :up:

Aka, watching people die of horrific burns: the series

I just went back and watched the first two seasons of Westworld. Felt like the second season was basically the second season of Prison Break... everyone gets a back story and none of the back stories really matter, except you're never sure what the arc really is so maybe they all matter.

What only 5 episodes of Chernobyl? Anyway, with the mention of the Chernobyl mini-series I watched The China Syndrome (1979) yesterday as a prelude.

I will say, if you haven't seen The China Syndrome you should :!: Made in '79 it still gives me goosebumps in some scenes.

Lucifer on netflix is definitely a guilty pleasure... It's sooo good. Can't believe all of the actors on that show are 40+

We're gonna give Chernobyl a try, heard good things about it. My girlfriend was born in Kiev only a month before the explosion and has bad memories of dealing with the fallout throughout her childhood. Her dad was also involved with the cleanup after the first wave of workers and volunteers dropped dead. Fucking scary shit.

You were where at the time and only 7 years old?

Re: Currently watching..... Chernobyl .. I just watched the first two episodes and I must say they did a great job creating the atmosphere. The detail and I guess the location makes for just a really good production.

One thing I fear is that (without having seen it yet) a series like Chernobyl will only breed more anti nuclear fission sentiments.

Nuclear fission is by far the cleanest and safest way of generating power, but all people can think of when they hear "nuclear" are bombs and Chernobyl.

I didn't get that vibe from the show at all, but storing nuclear waste from reactors is a major problem worldwide. I'd put that above meltdowns on the danger scale. Even Chernobyl was a perfect storm of ineptitude and oversight where absolutely everything had to be done horribly wrong, intentionally in some cases.

Not as big as people from Greenpeace want you to believe.
The physical amount of nuclear waste that needs long term storage (100+ years) is relatively small. Besides, we can think about solutions for that and ways to handle that. We can manage that. What we can't manage is where CO2 particles go once they leave the chimneys of a coal plant.

Or we could stop the oil and coal subsidies and stop corporations from dictating energy policies so we can properly invest in green infrastructure and renewable energy.

Too hard, let's keep stuffing radioactive waste underground.

There's a surprising amount of ecological pollution from things considered green energy, more so than nuclear. Solar panels for example, not so green when you compare it to a nuclear power plant.
