I do not know why no one makes a movie or mini series on Mahabharata. Not the stupid tv serial type on Doordarshan with stupid cgi and overly melodramatic acting or Bollywood masala, but a serious depiction. It is such fascinating story of ancient India with so many layers.

I remember there being one maybe 10 years back. It was worse than the Doordarshan one. The acting was bad. All the characters looked like he-man action figures with zero personality.

Finished watching Marseille S2 on Netflix. It was kind of ok or maybe even below average. I had liked S1, which was in a way like the film Trishul. Main attraction for me was interactions b/w Gérard Depardieu and Benoît Magimel

 

Moving on to Bosch S6 on prime now.

Is it good? I always avoid incidents that I know how it ends.

It is based on books by a cult insider/survivor and the FBI negotiator so it is good in terms of telling the story, acting, etc. .... whether you prefer the subject matter is a different question

Dark season 3 makes sure it goes in hall of fame among the greatest shows of all time.

 

Its genius , the creators deserve an applause for their imagination. 

If season 1-2 were difficult to keep track well then 3rd is at a diff level. Was wondering how would they bring all this together and they succeeded my expectation.

I didn't really like the last season. First two were absolutely top tier Sci-Fi. 

 

Then they decided to add the multiverse angle to the existing time traveling theme and it just got really...... lame.

that was already indicated in last season finale 

I loved how they bought all elements together .....it was pure genius.

You will love Mindhunter if you are fan of the context of what they are trying to convey.

 

Basically it’s pshyo profiling serial killers to understand why they do what they do and how they think.

 

If you are tuning in expecting a serial killer investigation series you may not like it.

 

I love the show, it’s probably the last great Netflix original.

I second this . I think Mindhunter is one of my favorite show it deals more with psychological aspects of the serial killer so its more of  interviewing find how they think, how they choose

Baztan trilogy for those who like light horror and suspense films: 

 

* The Invisible Guardian (Part 1) - Watched it some time ago but recall it being a good time pass watch 

* Legacy of bones (Part 2) - kind of ok. don’t recall being too impressed by it 

* Offerings to the storm (Part 3) - watched this y’day.  A good time pass watch similar to the first part. Story turns into Rosemary’s baby kind of plot if you get the hint

There are quite a few classic Hindi films on Netflix and Prime .... Do watch some of them when you get time so we keep getting more of them!

Is it better than Shemaroo. Shemaroo has such a wide collection of Bollywood movies. I would say Shemaroo is worth subscribing.

Good to know. Currently, I watch a handful of Hindi films mainly from the 50s-70s golden period and usually only if I happen to come across them rather than looking for them. 
 

This year so far I recall rewatching a few films like Amitabh’s Kala Patthar, Mahaan, the Great Gambler and Heera Pheri, Rajesh Khanna’s Chaila Babu, Kudrat and Mehbooba, Rajkumar’s Mere Hazoor, and may be a few others here and there including in the memory of Rishi Kapoor like Qatilo ke Qatil (Dharmendra-Rishi Kapoor), Duniya meri jeb mein (Shashi Kapoor-Rishi Kapoor) and Yeh Wada Raha (Rishi Kapoor).
