Black Earth Rising - Netflix drama about the prosecution of protagonists of the Rwandan genocide, 20 years or so later. I'm liking this a lot. It's well informed and mostly credible. First Netflix production in some time I haven't wanted to turn off after two episodes.

Cardboard over here.

Ep 1 was directed by Spielberg and has some cool camera work.

Ep 2 i feel would never have stood up in court.

The music is excellent. Every episode is feature length, this might roll into next may.
They are all superb..right up until the 80s when it all goes horribly , horribly wrong.

Steamy 80s style pre-watershed 'risque' scenes accompanied by saxophone music. Funny music every time Columbo appears on screen. Columbo leading the kids on a march as he plays funny music on the tuba...some highlights to look forward to

I saw the play that became the pilot episode for Columbo; Prescription: Murder, in The Grand Opera House in Belfast. Columbo was played by Dirk (The A-Team's Faceman) Benedict. It was fantastic.

I'd never really watched Columbo properly to be honest, my bf is pretty into it and in true hipster style was only really aware of Peter Falk/Columbo from Der Himmel uber Berlin. Was in Gorey this weekend with no working phone or internet and settled down to watch one, and was hooked. My Columbo stanning can only grow from here.
