not really won over by the trailer but interesting subject matter. kind of in the master territory with strange angel. out mid june.

“The story follows the life of Jack Parsons, a mysterious and brilliant man in 1940s Los Angeles, who by day helps birth the entirely unknown discipline of American rocketry, and by night is a performer of sex magick rituals and a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley.”

got four minutes before episode 2 of collateral finishes downloading. whats collateral, you say? one of the middling dramas ive scared up recently. heres a quick rundown from best to worst.

counterpart - parallel dimension spy thriller with jk simmons >> collateral - british murder mystery miniseries starring carey mulligan >> the alienist - period serial killer mystery >> endeavour >> prequel to inspector morse, period detective drama >> knightfall - pretty lame templars/ holy grail drama on history channel

the confidence man. If they lived through this era, any newyorker worth their stuff already had this career dirtball pegged.

Wasn't there a Broadchurch thread?  I watched season 2 and 3.  I think 2 was better but I liked the two leads enough that I wanted more so it led me to Spies Of Warsaw.  4 episodes - I enjoyed it but I'm still trying to figure out if the climactic operation was part of the plot throughout all the episodes or just tacked on to the end of E4.

stumbled across this yesterday: the detectorists. definitely wistful and subtle. think its on netflix.

This "wistful, subtle comedy" (Guardian, UK) was selected by the New York Times and the Hollywood Reporter as one of 2016's best shows. Winner of the BAFTA Award for best comedy, the series follows the eccentric members of the Danebury Metal Detecting Club as they search for treasure in the English countryside. Written and directed by star Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Detectorists also features outstanding performances by Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Rachael Stirling (The Bletchley Circle), and Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones).
