Just watched episode 1 of the new season. The Jacinda as Mary Poppins bit at the end was awesome

Personally I thought that Westworld is something I should have liked but it just ended up being pointlessly unintelligible and pointlessly violent. Looked good though.

Stuff Circuit’s 45 minute documentary on NZ’s Drongo of the Year, Billy Te Kahika.

 

While, thank god, it doesn’t look like there’s any chance he’ll get into parliament, that he’s become such a cultural force to be reckoned with within such a short period of time makes this worth watching, even if what’s behind that facade is (not too shockingly) far from pleasant.

Note the first video on this page is to the unedited interview; the doco itself is towards the bottom. (It’s frustrating the video’s not on YouTube or similar - I ended up chromecasting it from a Chromebook to the TV.)

It's really quite good.

Thanks for sharing, I watched the eyebrow raising interview and missed the doco. Will have another look.

I decided to watch this - using the Play Stuff app on Vodafone TV Gen 2 box. The quality was really good (production, video). I did feel that they stopped half way - well, he left the room so no more "interview". Shame there was no discussion of his trip down the rabbit hole that is QAnon and all the conspiracy theories.

Stuff have done some good video work recently. Carol Hirschfeld is running their Audio and Visual side for them. I enjoyed the series they did on the Christchurch earthquakes as well.

My sense from listening to Paula Penfold in yesterday's The Detail podcast was the focus was deliberately on the truth behind the man who claims himself to be exposing the truth, if you know what I mean! 


That particularly sad trip is well-covered (as I imagine you've seen) in David Farrier's Webworm post last month, which has been republished on the Spinoff - https://thespinoff.co.nz/politics/14-09-2020/how-billy-tk-plunged-down-the-covid-conspiracy-rabbit-hole/


This Stuff documentary is another example of the point I've made here on GZ a number of times: the ever-common dissing of Stuff is (and has always has been) such a gross generalisation - the Circuit team have been part of Stuff a while now, and have (as Handle9 pointed out just above) produced a number of high-quality and worthwhile programmes and features.

I watched the last episode of season 2 of The Boys yesterday on Prime Video. 

 

Enjoyable, with a weird ending (Really, Homelander?) and set up nicely to continue into season 3...no real conclusions, so it's all still in the air (as a good series ending should be). 

 

I want more and I don't want to wait....





Handsome Dan Has Spoken.
Handsome Dan is also still somewhat perplexed...

You may need to be patient! I listened to a discussion between Antony Star and David Farrier the other day, in which the former mentioned season two was filmed in 2019, and I imagine it could be a while until they can get onto filming season three.
Is there much production of programmes or movies happening in the US at the moment?

I enjoyed High Score too.

 

Last night we finished watching the latest season of The Umbrella Academy. Very interesting ending and hoping it's renewed for a third season.

My understanding is that the terms are a bit fluid, but generally - Executive Producers are investors or representatives of the investors. Producers are the project managers that made the project actually come together.
