Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Non political post, but for those who know how to stream tv shows, do yourself a favour and invest some time in Pennyworth. It's about Alfred, batman's butler, set in a dark London sixties. My current fave show.
Netflix? or another platform?
TVNZ: Watch Pennyworth | Stream Free On TVNZ OnDemand
Just looked and they have taken off the first 3 episodes
Might be able to “borrow” it from a “friend” on the internet
Watchseries or 123movies will have it. Just use an adblocker or 3 in case of pervy popups.
I had actually already had someone recommend it, but then forgot all about it
TVNZ are weird. Why would they do that? It just drives people to functional streaming services or downloading.
probably only bought a license to stream them for a month or so.
edit: funnily enough, there’s been more than one item I might have downloaded illegally, then liked so much I went out and bought a legitimate copy.
they could just put the whole series up at once for the month.
Are you buying DVDs?
Sometimes DVDs (especially movies), sometimes keeping a streaming subscription/ getting a new one.
Although it's streaming here, it's made by a US cable service as a regular programme, like Handmaid's tale or GoT. Each episode is released pretty much weekly, and it's only been broadcast in the US for a couple of months. Don't know if it's same-day broadcast, but they haven't shown the full series in the US yet anyway.
have to say I'm enjoying the people vs. oj simpson on netflix – unbelievable really.
so watched a couple of episodes last nioght – really good. Interesting parallel world, and I like the way the guy plays Alfred the way Michael Caine played Alfred, but not by playing Michael Caine playing Alfred (if you know what I mean). "Acting" – ooooo it's magical, lol
Did you get to the hanging scene yet? Spot the gag with the first victim? Much nasty lols.
Agree about the lead. He did well not to be a dodgy pastiche while remaining true to Caine. Glad you're enjoying it
Ha! missed it the first time! Good one.
A wince and a smile though not necessarily in that order. Lol
It seems they do subtle nods pretty frequently – the "phil – archie" one could be a double whammy.
also, Alaska burning
I wonder how many godwits will return to NZ this spring after nesting in Alaska.
wow that is such a great point – I love Kuaka – the most amazing bird.
Seems they breed in the west and far north but most of the fires are in the south west.
The Portsmouth Sinfonia strikes.
The internet enables some delightful satire while at the same time causing us indigestion etc. The 'music' was so good. But not having him as the top banana (bent) would be even better, and I could forego the ironic laughter.
Can't open the "Ross Leaks Again" post. Tried several times and same result … doesn't open. Anyone else having a similar problem?
Everything is working using my Smartphone.
Thanks for your response Fireblade (4.1) … managed to eventually open that particular post. Took about 40 mins though.
When you consider all the dirty politics, shady donations and just plain incompetence from past National govt and the arrogant petulance of the current National party opposition and then see the headlines "Jacinda Ardern drops in popularity" it really makes you wonder where this country is at. I would suggest pretty near rock bottom, along with the cesspit fourth estate.
Anyone for sewage leaking through your hospital wall at the moment……………….
Think it kind of more shows that people don't think the Labour Party are doing that well in govt.
Which is kind of not surprising really given they haven't really done much.
Probably Labour is at 100% more than the 1% that I will allow for National's activities.
It couldn't be 0% because 100% of that would still be 0, but I have a feeling that I am boosting Gnastional unreasonably.
That is just bullshit Chris. But you know that.
H'm. That story is dated August 27 2019.
Labour, and "Doctor" Clark have been sitting on their thrones for almost 2 years, haven't they. Now we are getting sewage coming through the ceiling in a Hospital Emergency Department. What the hell are the current Government up to that such a thing has started happening?
Perhaps they could have used the money they are giving to Tainui, or the money they are throwing into the sewage pit that is the Wellington cycle-ways instead of allowing out Hospitals to deteriorate the way they are. Thank God we will get a competent lot after the 2020 election. I wonder how long they will need to fix up the shambles Jacinda and the dwarfs are going to leave them.

Obviously they have disturbed a poltergeist.
Perhaps it is a clue as to the whereabouts of the latest missing miscreant involved in dodgy leaking. The police should be advised.
It was National who spent money on the cycleway and ignored reports about Middlemore's failure. Lying again Alwyn
Such is the power of National’s apathy that it causes Middlemore to be a shithole more than two years after National ceased to be the government
How could National possibly have spent money on this cycleway?
Approval of funding, and a proposed plan for it, were only announced by Genter on April 12 2019.
Nothing has been spent yet so how the hell could National be responsible for this monumental useless extravagance?
You really are thick, aren't you? And/a liar to boot.
Dr Jonathan "Safe Pair of Hands" Coleman may have had a vested interest in ensuring that NZ's public health sector was
well and truly ***ked over'looked after'.
Departing politicians getting jobs with private companies they have mollycoddled while in power, "is not corruption".
"…instead of allowing out Hospitals to deteriorate the way they are"
ummm that would be the gnats there alwyn – another own goal – how many have you put in your own net so far lol
funny and serious sortof – this is how fake news gets constructed lol
Don't watch while eating. At best you end up with a splatter of food over keyboard. At worst a hearty choke.
The Brits don't make em like they used to any more. Thanks Marty.
What could possibly go wrong.
(great nuclear disaster flick exposition, though)
Ukrainian authorities are investigating a potential security breach at a local nuclear power plant after employees connected parts of its internal network to the internet so they could mine cryptocurrency.
A grim summary of politics today….nothing new but explained relatively clearly and hopefully provides an understanding of the importance of preventing its continuation.
It is difficult to fight unidentified enemies….this clearly identifies them
