  • New series La Revolution coming to Netflix in October

    As a history buff who loves costume dramas, this new series set at the time of the French Revolution on Netflix looks really good. It’s said to be incredibly violent and realistic.

    Incredibly violent is fairly off-putting for me, it would have to have some fabulous balance of other factors. Not that I get Netflix, at the moment.

      Oh—

      I am so very happy—

      And yes, Stoney, it does
      have a balance of other factors:

      Its use of a twist on vampirism opens
      into a quite marvelous socio-politico-
      economic critique of pre-Revolutionary
      France—

      One that reverberates against the vast
      inequalities of that ungraspable force
      of of Global Capitalism—

      And the characters are well-drawn,
      well-acted...*


      *Although I have become weary of Netflix's
      thing for brunettes: all its heroines seem to
      fall into that category...

      A kind of repetition of the old saying about
      whom men will marry, save that women
      like me do not seem to worthy of even
      an affair with the network...
