#381

#382

#383

Enjoying Wild Wild Country


#384

#385

le wildoi


#386

Shitting hell, episode 2 was insane.


#387

Have you guys heard of Wild Wild Country? It’s a new series on netflix.

I binged most of it last night and finished it today, was really into it. After watching Ep 1 I felt like they were probably gonna spread a relatively minor conflict too far over 6 hours but holy hell was I wrong, completely insane hwo it all kicked off.


#388

Got half of the last one to go and I can’t believe how mental it is and how seemingly forgotten it must’ve been for it to have completely evaded me up until this point.


#389

yeah totally, exactly the kind of thing i’m into and it had completely passed me by. seemed to grab a lot of headlines and stuff like johnny carson singing bye bye bhagwan was crazy.


#390

Also, how wild is it that it was in the fucking mid-eighties!? Like it seems like the sort of dime-a-dozen 60’s pseudo-religious hippy stuff that was very prevalent then but it’s right slap-bang in the middle of fucking Reagan era, neoliberal America. Mad.


#391

I finished watching it last night

Great story - yeah the 80s were proper crazy at times


#392

the stuff with

the homeless people getting drugged/ sedated and it turning out they were only there to vote was mind boggling


#393

i feel like they were pretty hard done by tbh. no doubt some dark shit went down but seemed to be far more about the US flexing their muscles to get rid of outsiders they didn’t like than actually charging them with crimes they’d actually committed.


#394

no good guys in this story really


#395

also I dropped off a bit during the last episode so may need to rewatch. Hope I didn’t miss anything too major


#396

The war hero who forced a surrender out of the Nazis and then became an Olympic record-breaking coach who invented Nike trainers with a waffle iron IMO


#397

he was pretty much chief “we don’t like outsiders here, this is america” though


#398

oh sure - but he wasn’t actually interviewed (due to being dead). His son was refreshingly “rural” considering he must be a billionaire


#399

Well yeah, but that’s a hell of a life innit.


#400

think i fancied sheela tbh
