This crime drama follows members of a police department as they try to uncover a mystery against the elements. In a fjord near a small Icelandic town, a ferry arrives from Denmark with 300 passengers -- but only their journey stops here. A storm overhead and a treacherous blizzard prevent the ferry and the townspeople from leaving the remote area. When a dismembered, mutilated body washes up onshore, the local police realize a murder has taken place just hours earlier. Everybody trapped in the vicinity immediately becomes potential suspects and chaos descends as they try to find the killer

Defending Jacob

Apple TV + has a few shows on their channel that seems pretty interesting that we took the time to check out when it came up.  This month it was Captain America (Chris Evans) playing a lawyer who's son is a suspect for killing another child.  The drama in which we go through pulls you back and forward of did he do it or didn't he.  8 episodes and an open ended conclusion of did his son really do it.  This also was based on a book that was written in 2012 by a lawyer and writer.

Our next Wine club/subscription is Winc wines. I had this subscription before and stopped it because I had too many wines in my rack.  But this subscription is more to my liking.  4 bottles for $59 with free shipping over $50.  They can curate or you can choose.  This review are the wines I supplied info to them and they curated the wines for me.  Lets see if these were a good choice.

Looking at the previews for this new TV series, I wasn't sure if this would be something I would find entertaining.  But here's the catch, Its about dying and your consciences is uploaded into a virtual reality.  Only if you can pay for the everlasting life.  Made me go Hmmm, so I invited Alicia to watch it with me.  Also as a added bonus, It was from Greg Daniels the creator of The Office, Parks and Recreation

A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. 

It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto) giving it a charmingly light sparkle.

Plaza de la Reina red marries three varietals Tempranillo, Grenache and Monastrell into a totally tasty blend that displays a medium ruby hue and aromas of plum and cranberry with some spice.  The flavors are surprisingly concentrated for a wine of this price with ripe fruit, nice tannins, and a long finish.

Extraction (Netflix)

So this movie on Netflix is number 1 in the nation. Mixed reviews about no story, too much violence, blah, blah, blah. But I’m bored and wanted to see some stuff blown up. And your boy Thor is on here (Chris Hemsworth). Since he got back into shape. Why not show him some love.

This week we have different conversation about leadership in the black community compared to the 60’s and now. Has activism changed based on the people or is it because of social media and the class divide among African Americans?
