Wild Wild Country on Netflix. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure if younger people would identify with how "big" this was at the time. It was front page news even in NZ - there was even a Rajneesh commune in Murchison. After watching all 6 episodes, I'm completely unsure about whether the Bhagwan or Sheela were 100% con-artist or prophets, good or bad, whether the locals affected were morons or wise, the officials were genuinely caring or hysterical reactionaries, or whether any of those things really matter and the whole thing was a massive media beat up.

 

 

 

This was one of the most unbelievable (but true), fascinating documentaries I've seen in a long time.

This is currently our nightly staple viewing; good enough to warrant signing up for a month of Netflix just to see it.

I’d never heard of the sect, nor has anyone I’ve talked to about it, so part of the fascination is finding out for the first time about a true-life story that seems almost too far-fetched for someone to have made up - I feel like it’s a two for the price of one in that I’m watching a drama at the same time as a doco.

+1 for Kedi. I just saw it and it is a lovely celebration of catness. Also an enjoyable peek at Istanbul from a different perspective.

Not sure if it qualifies as a documentary, reality tv show, or tv series?

 

Enjoying "Car SOS" on freeview at the moment.

The China Hustle.   its about con men selling investments in "up and coming" Chinese companies  that just aren't.  I just kept thinking of Fontera while watching it.
