Got through episode 9 last night and saw there were 14 episodes. See the story taking a very drastic and interesting turn and we are very excited. Got to get through it fast though. We watched the first episode of the third season of "The Last Kingdom" for a teaser and we're really excited about getting back to that. "I am Utred, son of Utred" (guessed at the spelling)

I binge watched Happy the other weekend. Best show I've seen in a long time. Very dark and very funny.

Watching Dune right now.

Very odd, David Lynch involved, like watching a Sci-fi Twin Peaks.

Lots of Steam Punk before it became mainstream I suspect.

ETA: Odd that I mention Twin Peaks, because Kyle MacLachan stars in both.

Dune is such a bad sci-fi it's good. The special effects for 1984 were good, and remember, Star Wars was its closest rival for sci-fi at the time.

One flopped, the other built an empire of spin off movies. Can Dune be redone?

Took this as a recommendation and yes! We are on episode three in a moment. Totally dark and completely hysterical.

Yes please :smt045

* Read all six books and saving them to read again. Frank Herbert is an awesome writer and I have read most of his books.
A redo of Dune with today's technology might do Herbert's story more justice (with the sequels already written).

Watching the Netflix original, "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat" right now.

Fat - all shot in Italy and specializes in olive oil and how it's done and cooked in Italian cuisine.

Salt - All shot in Japan and specializes in Japanese salts from the sea. There are several locations shown, showcasing hand made speciality salts and how they are used in Japanese cooking. Ahem, Catsumi!

Acid - All shot in Mexico, Yucatan region and how acids from fruits and honey is used in Mexican cooking. I want to go there now. Never did before, but now I do. Ahem, Catsumi!!!!!

Heat - no idea yet. :D That one is for dinner time tomorrow.

There is nothing like watching cooking shows shot in exotic locations to show how dinner here sucks. :admin:

Goodness me, it's nice to be remembered.

Up to my sunwarmed jowls in plump avacados (slice onto toast points, add mayo and crisp bacon) Swoon!

Why is it that world class baking...., croissants, rolls, muffins and the like are found in hot countries like Mexico, Costa Rica and strangely enough, the very very best is in Japan? Imho. They don't even grow wheat!

Oh right, you're in warm climes and not getting snowed in right now.
I hate you.

Unexpected. I had expected heat as in how to spice food up, maybe some gorgeous shooting in Thailand or India. But nope, heat in this case meant the fire, the oven temperature, the stove top temperature, the difference between a simmer and a roiling boil.

Fair enough, nice ending to a great four part series! :130:

Thanks for that post, Sobro.

I luv the Coen bros flix. Offbeat, dark in tone with black humor that satisfies twisted minds. (Mine).
