Parasite (Korean)

This Korean drama was awarded and praised at the Cannes film festival by the great Korean director Bong Joon Ho.  This was something I knew I wanted to see but wasn't sure if Alicia would be able to keep up with subtitles.  This film turned out to be an amazing lesson in the differences of class, privilege and suspense.  This movie was laid out so well that you never knew would would be next.  An extraordinary piece of art.

This week i took a little more time than normal to watch a 18 episode Korean TV series called “Black”. A supernatural/serial killer drama that seemed very different for what I was use to with Korean TV series. A very good and creative series.

Black is the story of a grim reaper who is forced to track down his fugitive partner. In the process, he uncovers the truth about a series of cold case murders from 20 years ago. Investigating the murders complicates the reaper's primary role of guiding the deceased to their respective afterlife, especially after he falls in love with a mortal woman - which leads him to break supernatural rules against involvement in human affairs

The team jumps in with the opinions about the how our diplomacy has changed under the Trump administration.  With the North Korean / US summit completed, we're not sure what we got out of the summit as a nation.  With a twist to presidential legacies, What do we feel about legacies with presidential people or performers?  Also what will be next with Mike Pence and what will the democrats bring to the table for the next General elections and lets make room for women.  Especially with the DNC still not organized enough to represent the people.

 This awkard twisted serial killer saga, tells the story about a doctor that overhears some suspicious and perhaps brutal killing of someone nwhile they are sedated in his clinic.  This movie takes you on a plot twisting ride that makes you ask, am I right or am I wrong. Or Is it both.  Something to be prepared for.

A doctor finds himself in the middle of an unsolved serial murder case after discovering a secret from a sedated patient. When dismembered bodies show up close to home, he must solve the riddle before the killer realizes what he knows.

The team gets together and discuss Trump creating Battlestar Gallactica/Star Trek force to protect space.  Yeah, thats what I said.  Also we talk about what the media is really doing this year compared to the previous year as well as Some of the decisions made by the supreme court.  We were a day late on the Kennedy resignation.  And we almost missed what went on during the G7 summit.  We alsp delve into the racist policies and discuss fear vs. racism.  A very interesting discussion.

We took a few weeks off but get back into the issues just in time to run into topics such as pardons, entertainers going the Hell off, immigration and back to the NFL BS.  The team jumps right in and give out their unrehearsed, unsolicited candid opinions.
