I liked, "Unorthodox." It was a good glimpse of what it is like in the closed off, Hasidic Jewish world...especially for a woman.

Is it still on Netflix? My sister said it was really good.

We just saw The Sinner- it is super weird but I have to say we liked it. Bill Pullman is great in it.
But like I said- it's a weird set of stories (3 in all)

according to my son, who's a bit of an information nerd, there really were Romany gangs in industrial English cities like Birmingham, etc at turn of century and between the wars, and they really did use their peaked caps (hence the name) with bits of glass sewn in the fronts (cause razors were still straight edges at that time ) to use as weapons.

But seriously, any show with Cillian Murphy and "those eyes!" , right?

Another show we are catching on PBS is Miss Scarlet and the Duke--it's set about the same time frame and we really like it too.

I'm watching Heartland very good.

I knooowww....those eyes. He's a good actor too. I'm totally mesmerized by him.

The Godfather I and II are my favorite movies of all time. (Leave the gun, take the cannolli.) This show has so many similarities. "Michael, is so much like, "Tommy."

I agree about The Godfather. Hands down one of the best movies ever made. My Dad didn't like anything Hollywood or TV. He only watched the news but........ he LOVED The Godfather movies.

tropit- did you watch The Sopranos? I think it's one of the best TV series ever ever ever!! (just my op though)

The Sopranos came along during those days when we gave up cable TV (2008ish...the Great recession) and were also in the process of moving, so I missed it. I've only seen a couple of episodes. I really should check it out.

I was reading up on Peaky Blinders and the writer said that he purposely didn't watch any other movies, or TV shows, for fear that he might be influenced by them. I dunno...the script definitely has some Godfather influence...no doubt about it. Lots of other people have noticed as well. Here's just one: https://vocal.media/geeks/peaky-blinders-the-godfather

Never the less, I still really like Peaky Blinders. I'm into season 4. My only complaint is that many of the female characters have medium length, dark, brown hair. I'm getting them all confused.

I also love Tom Hardy's and Adrien Brody's performances.

I really should be doing the bookkeeping.............nah.

tropit- you need to watch The Sopranos !!!!
I think we saw it on Prime, maybe Netflix. When it came out I believe it was on HBO( didn't have it) which is why I just saw it last winter. It was made quite a long time ago. James Gandoloffini has been gone a long time. Wow, he was fab!!!
I want to watch it again!

The other night we watched Forrest Gump. I cannot believe I never saw it until now. What a wonderful movie! I loved every single moment of it.
