Really liked "The Code", a 6 episode Australian miniseries currently on Netflix.

Watched this on the tablet during a long airline flight:
The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) - IMDb

French town gets an Indian restaurant and sparks start to fly. Pretty good flick. I kept thinking 'brewer' instead of 'chef', and GABF instead of Michelin stars.

The Culture High - a very good documentary on the debate about marijuana legalization. 93% of users liked it on Rotten Tomatoes - The Culture HighÂ*(2014) - Rotten Tomatoes

The Wrecking! Crew...
The Wrecking Crew was a group of studio musicians in Los Angeles in the 1960s who played on hits for the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny and Cher, Jan & Dean, The Monkees, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Mamas and Papas, Tijuana Brass, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Rivers and were Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. The amount of work that they were involved in was tremendous.

They were also involved in groups that I like to call the Milli Vanillis of the day. A producer would get the guys in and lay down some instrumental tracks. If it became a hit, they would record an album and put a group together to go on the road. This happened many times with groups like the Marketts, Routers, and T-Bones. The next day they would do the same thing and call it another name. Same musicians, but different group name.

The record industry was primarily in New York, London and Detroit in the late '50s and early '60s. Then there was a surge towards the mid-60s that pushed the recording to the West Coast. So these musicians were recording around the clock for a good 8 years. The heyday for this group was in 1967 when the charts turned to the West.

I'm not sure I could watch that as I live in obesity land. McAllen TX has the highest obesity numbers in the US, and it's really noticeable when you return from having been in Europe for a month!

But thanks for the reference - I still might check it out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fed_Up_(film)
NY Times Review: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/09/mo...ulge.html?_r=1

I know about the incredible stuff the average American eats and the proliferation of fast food restaurants and massive quantities of sugary sodas consumed, etc. We've observed it for decades.

We live completely outside of that zone. No sugary sodas. No fast food restaurants. Very little junk. And we have for decades. So we don't identify with the food issues personally, but we see so many people around us who are part of that horrible diet world.

I'm a big David Tennant fan anyway and he was great in this. He went a bit crazy with his native Scottish accent here - occasionally unintelligible.

First time I've watched a murder mystery series where all 8 episodes was one case. Made it more like a novel.

Series 2 is 2015, so maybe that will show up before too long.

I don't use Netflix, so I'm not sure if the movie is even available. But I own the DVD and just watched it the other night and laughed my behind off.

The movie is titled 'let it ride'
It's from the mid to late 80s & stars Richard Dreyfuss, David Johansen, Jennifer Tilly, and the fat guy from Wings.

If you have any interest in betting on horses, you'll love it even more.

I'm pleased that you liked it. Fingers crossed that series 2 shows up on Netflix soon. (it was shown in the UK early this year)

Watched this last night and highly recommend it. I learned a lot about obesity and the recent history of nutrition in the US of A. Learning that rats will choose sugar over heroin is enlightening.

We watched "Danny Collins" Friday night- no idea what to expect but really enjoyed it. Al Pacino, Annette Bening, and Jennifer Garner.

Not Netflix but Amazon Prime video: Grantchester. I guess it was on PBS Masterpiece earlier this year? Great acting (always love Robson Green) but more importantly it deals with social issues in postwar Britain in a gentle , thoughtful way. Not at all in the soap opera style that Downton Abbey morphed into after the first season. IMHO of course. :-)

So I finally watched Barbarella. Teen boy dream movie I guess. It was actually pretty good, if you are in the mood for late 1960s sci fi and seeing a young Jane Fonda nekkid.

We were scraping the barrel a bit after being flooded in for four days, what can I say?

A classic. I particularly liked the see through plastic bra cups.
