    Prissy 18th century social rigidity with 21st century wokeness, you might as well have Jefferson running with his Quadroon concubine all over Paris...

    Do younger watchers know that this is Alice and Wonderland stories or do they feel this is historically accurate? Note to lurkers and younger posters a Mulatto could be free but he would never mix in these social circles, unless he was serving drinks or cleaning stables.

    Another Netflix movie that needs to have a warning before you watch it.

    None of the current series are much good, so I'd sooner watch older ones like The Bourne Identity (1988).

    You know, a decent series I just watched is Jericho. Now it is by no means perfect, but themes of liberty and individual rights against and oppressive government resonate. It only lasted about a season and a half; in hindsight with its themes it is not hard to see why.

    And seeing the Gadsden flag prominently featured at the end of the series was great!

    The Decades TV channel has what they call the Weekend Binge where they play nothing but one show from the past all weekend. This weekend they're paying something called Sledge Hammer. I'd never heard of it. It's a comedy show that sends up cop and detective shows. It's actually pretty funny.

    You might want to check this show out.
