Recently watched 2010 mini-series Any Human Heart after reading that it featured Gillian Anderson. I didn’t know what role she played but thought I’d give it a try. Really glad I did; it stars Jim Broadbent portraying the series protagonist, 'failed' writer Logan Mountstuart, as an old man who is reflecting back on his life as he sorts through treasures, detritus, mementos; vestiges of a lifetime spent reinventing himself throughout the 20th Century, beginning w/his student days at Oxford in the 1920’s, followed by marriages, careers, love affairs, tragedies, death, and finally, recognition (postmortem). Except for a sequence where he naïvely acts as courier between a London-based anarchist group and the Baader-Meinhof gang, I didn’t find much too far-fetched.

Tobias Menzies is memorably droll as Ian Fleming, who recruits Mountstuart into British Naval Intelligence and Tom Hollander is a hoot as abdicated king, the Duke of Windsor, as is Gillian Anderson as the Duchess (my biggest complaint about the series is that there wasn't enough of her-- she steals every scene she's in).

Been watching Star Trek Picard. Don't like it. Don't like it one bit. The last episode with Riker and Troi was nice but overall the series has been boring and goes against everything Star Trek is supposed to be about. It's like it's being written by people who don't understand Star Trek for people who don't understand Star Trek or don't like it. Oh well, I'm in this far, might as well ride out the last 3 episodes.

Decided to watch my blu-ray collection of Gatchaman during this covid-19 psyop--oops, I mean pandemic. Gatchaman is a Japanese anime from 1972, repackaged and re-edited for North America as Battle of the Planets. I find the Japanese version to be more full in terms of story. The watered-down version eliminated some minor profanity and scenes of more violent content. I used to love watching BOTP as a youngster, along with Spectreman, Ultra-man, Space Giants. Spectreman came on here at 3:30, so I would race back home on my bike as quickly as I could, meanwhile the theme song is going through my head. "Spectreman!"
Still I miss the great theme from BOTP.
