    Not yet. I’ve been saving it for when I rewatch New DALLAS and New DYNASTY. But now you’re tempting me, I might watch it sooner ...

    Can't wait to read all about that.

    But Don Johnson proves to be a very interesting oil man, and the character names Hap, Wick, Tip and Jules remind me of Flamingo Road.
    Only 10 episodes, unfortunately!

    Episodes 3 & 4

    How fascinating! I thought I was watching a New Dallas spin-off, but it's more like Old Dynasty season 1, minus the emerald-studded zoo. Although….

    The ending of Blood & Oil is not what I had expected. The second half is not as strong and gritty as the first half, but overall it's a very entertaining series.

    The Deuce and Succession was going to be my next watch, but I'm watching The Shield instead. How very anarchic of me.

    I did the first episode of this tonight. I'd put it in the same category as Gossip Girl and The OC. The characters and their secrets are sufficiently intriguing enough to make me want to keep going.

    I also think I'm going to give this one a go when it comes out next week:

    Netflix & others lack heart, suggests the BBC’s head of television Charlotte Moore in a lecture.

    BBC chief accuses Netflix of failing to take risks because its decisions are made by robots
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/11/bbc-chief-accuses-netflix-failing-take-risks-decisions-made/

    I had a good chuckle at the comments on The Telegraph.


    More on topic… last watched episode 21 of The Rise of Phoenixes, a Chinese historical drama of palace intrigues that follow the release from imprisonment (within a temple) of the 6th prince of the current emperor (Tiansheng Kingdom). So far it appears that everything stems from the night there was a showdown with “the last remnant” of the previous emperor, but no one knows exactly what happened so there are secrets from that time.

    Began watching a week ago. Had a slow start, needing to go over a couple of episodes to match names to titles – because the royal family personal names begin with “Ning” for all – and to match names with faces. More incomprehensible to me is how women disguised as men can get away with it for long. Apparently, men in the countryside can tell (because families there allow women to dress in men’s clothing to do business) but not in the capital.

    Who’s in it? Every man and his dog: A tailor, ‘his’ classy brothel from which royal concubines seem to come, various other esteemed places of learning, an emperor, 5 other princes or more, their households and followers/supporters; the uncles: a black duke; a white duke and a stern duke or two (and how to know whose intentions are really what), a masked sorcerer, a bloody pagoda, a wily fox, a smart and nippy raccoon, a very discriminating talking parrot, all manner of eunuchs, spies and guards – royal guards, swordsmen guards, bodyguards, and more.

    Draggy here and there, but binge-worthy. English subtitles available. Said to be a 70-episode series. Netflix has 45 (and counting, I hope).
