Been continuing my work on getting a 'trade secrets we deserve' ready. Can't say its the most thrill filled experience ever but there is some satisfaction to seeing things come together. I question the use of such a thing due to emulators being used and almost all of the techniques discussed being redundant. But meh. I thought it was cool Some of the questions that it raised are pretty interesting though.
So to stave off the boredom of capturing screen shots, testing pdf layouts I have been watching a bunch of TV series...
Unrelated tv series wibble..
Narcos - Saw the second season, I think the character acting in this is good. Seems to be a continuation of good writing from the first series. One thing though this is not some deep thinking series on narco politics or the logistics of operating in a corrupt society with weak rule of law. Its more something you watch for its escapism. What I like is while its simplistic and escapist its not boring or formulaic, it also stays within the realms of belivability. Enjoyed the first series more though.
The Blacklist - A mystery/action series for windowlickers. This has to have some of the worst writing & acting for a series I have had the misfortune of watching. I don't understand how it gets such good reviews when the pilot has so many show stopping unbelievable plot holes. For me its important for a series to be believable, when a series breaks that I get annoyed and loose interest. I just can't get my head round how this obviously written by comity hack job of a script ever got commissioned. And the preachy, hokey SJW gender politics nonsense is so obvious its painful. "lets subvert every gender trope we can in the first episode... yay diversity." Its like a team of college students in a liberal arts program decided to write a TV series and it got put into production with no oversight.
