If you’re thinking “WTF is Counterpart”, I won’t be surprised. It was on Starz (a US Cable channel) so didn’t get much exposure. It’s a kinda Cold War spy thriller with a hint of sci-fi / alternate world stuff, with an incredible cast, JK Simmons in the lead.
If that sounds interesting to you, I’d suggest giving it a go without reading any more about it. Probably the less you know, the more you will be drawn in. One of my all-time top shows. Both seasons are now available on TVNZ streaming.

#TaranakiFestivalOfLights was awesome, well set up in the open areas of the Huatoki Plaza and New Plymouth foreshore walkway.

Adam Buxton’s interview with Jarvis Cocker is interesting, amazing and funny, give it a listen if you remember Pulp and the time of Br*tp*p https://overcast.fm/+FUW0GlWlw

I wonder how she will react when she gets the Will Smith/Shrek beanie 🤔
I’m going through some medical stuff at the moment and am absolutely blown away by the concern, generosity and thoughtfulness of some people, and the absolute indifference of others.
Not seeking sympathy here or anything, I am just amazed at how bloody nice some people are (like our neighbours) and disappointed at someone who I would consider one of my oldest friends who basically said “oh that sucks. Anyway…”
i have thought about this hacker news comment nearly every day since november ninth twenty seventeen
Good episode, asking important questions, “Why does everything in tech fee like a scam”. Definitely worth a listen if you’re watching the NFT/DeFi stuff in disbelief.
I’m walking the dogs. Old man with 2 dogs approaches. Dogs sniff and sus each other out, old man mutters something “couple of service dogs” or similar, I didn’t catch. I said “sorry, what?” and he fires back “oh you’ve obviously got no sense of humour”.
I’ve never been so offended, and I’m not sure why
