Yeah watched it last night too. Pretty grim. Eye opening in terms of the dolphin friendly branding being linked to the manufacturers and everything. Did turn into vegan propaganda in the end though.

Yeah it did a bit but given the subject matter I half expected it to be more like that.
Really was an eye opener, though I guess depressingly predictable. Seems like something needs to happen soon.

I’m half way through Scam City on Iplayer. Decent. All about a student who roped people into investing into his Forex “business” and basically spent the cash on goods and bling which he flaunts on Instagram. Still got two episodes to go but it looks like a massive fraud/pyramid scheme job. As well as giving you all the facts and interviewing the people scammed the jounro is also trying to track the guy down and confront him. Worth a look.

Will give that a go, some of that Forex shit is absolute nonsense when you see the "influencers".

Didn’t realise OJ: Made In America was on iPlayer. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Like a courtroom drama mixed with The Last Dance, with a study of race in America weaved through the whole thing.

Just starting watching the series on Apple ( still free as we bought a phone last year) called 1971 the year that music changed everything - very interesting - some excellent music - mostly American based history but some excellent footage

Might not be everyone’s cup of tea but the 1997 lions tour documentary is a great watch

Currently sat down watching Class Action Park. Hilarious for all the wrong and stupid reasons.

After Clint's comments previously I had to get involved as well. The guy who was running the park genuinely didn't seem like he gave that much of a shit. Equally, that one where it was a sphere that went down the ramp and across the motorway was delivered with so much nonchalance it was unreal.

Yeah a lot of bad shit. I think it’s the shock and disbelief making me laugh. I do feel awful though, I’m not a horrible person!
