    The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

    Yes, it seemed like Sunny was her hatchet-man, bouncer, and general all-around thug. This was highlighted in the book, but this doc never even touched on it. One thing I don't understand, however, was why they implied that she and Sunny were remiss in not revealing their relationship to investors. Why should that matter?

    The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

    I just re-watched the last hour of the documentary and I think the director gives way too much credit to Holmes as being idealistic but misguided. It's one thing to keep working on something that no one thinks will ever work, it's another to present that thing as functional, misrepresent it to investors and regulators and use it on patients. It's hard to believe that this is the same guy who made one of my favorite documentaries, Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room.

    The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley

    I read the book several months ago, but IIRC more than a few people in Arizona (during the Walgreen's rollout) were told to "DROP EVERYTHING AND GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM RIGHT NOW!!!" because the Edison results were so (erroneously) bad. I think one woman had to cancel a long planned and fully paid for vacation at the last minute and other people had their medicine doses changed, although no one specifically died due to the testing. Is anyone in Arizona pursuing criminal charges against her? Because the SEC only gave her a slap on the wrist. I found the HBO documentary somewhat unfocused and lacking a clear point of view. I only caught part of the 20/20 show but it seemed to lay things out better.

    All Episodes Talk: TRMS 2019 Season

    In every handoff I've seen, it's LOD that extends it, not Rachel. She always looks more than ready to finish up and get off the air.

    Russian Doll

    It's easy to miss the full fish tank in the first iteration - how would you know that's something to pay attention to? Especially when, in a subsequent iteration, Maxine specifically confirms that she only has 2 fish (and they have names). It doesn't strike you as being "off" like the rotting flowers and food do. I just re-watched the whole season a few days ago, and it's so smart and well-done. And even knowing when some of the deaths are coming, there are others that catch you unawares and make you jump.

    Well, she actually did sleep with the homeless guy while drunk in one iteration. (That's the one where she froze to death.) They just didn't have sex.

    Leaving Neverland

    All I remember is that he always made them wear masks out in public, which was creepy as hell. Growing up with that guy as their only parent must have really f*cked them up. And is the youngest's name really Blanket? I thought that was just a pet name. Who the hell names their kid Blanket?

    Leaving Neverland

    I read somewhere recently that his estate has built up nicely since his death as he still owned half the Sony backlist plus royalties on all his music but MJ isn't around to go on wild spending sprees. ETA: Based on recommendations from other posters I watched Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix yesterday. Totally creepy (you'll want to take a shower after you watch) but a very good example of how a pedophile grooms parents. In this case,

    The Curse Of Oak Island

    As far as anyone knows, that's the case. IIRC, Marty does or did.

    Leaving Neverland

    To switch gears slightly, does anyone else think this documentary could have been edited a lot tighter and told in 2 hours instead of 4? For example, how many shots to we need of that long, long, loooooong drive to Neverland ranch with what sounds like the title music of Finding Neverland playing in the background?

    Leaving Neverland

    Catholic priests got away with it for decades. (And some probably still are, somewhere.) This documentary should be called The Tale of Two Clueless Mothers.

    The Many Sides of Jane

    This series ended with more of a whimper than a bang. Although I suppose that was a given since Jane said upfront that she would not reveal her abuser and that's normally the big payoff for the viewer.

    I wouldn't be surprised if MSNBC aired in live in it's entirety.

    S02.E10: Better Angels

    Just FYI, that exact scene (panning out to show all of the park and the apartment buildings) was a duplication of the shot where we first see Yanek meet the CIA guy and get the camera.

    Black Earth Rising

    Wow, has no one else watched this show? Maybe it's the title, and people think it's a geology documentary? As I just posted in Russian Doll thread, at first I thought that show was a spy drama. Anyhow, incredible cast, fantastic acting and a thrilling plot until the last episode when the explanations left me SMH.
