    Jazz,

    1. I must have completely missed the Laver Cup incident. I'd watched none of Laver Cup and I think I didn't read the entire thread here because it was an especially busy period at work. I...

    I liked Todo Sobre Mi Madre! It was the second of his I'd seen after Mujeres al Borde (which I first saw as a kid). I think even his weaker and randomer films have a cultural feeling that's...

    I can't imagine that 130,000 a day really MUST fly. I imagine in a stricter lockdown, the number would be a third that at most (crews + medical personnel + government officials + emergencies)

    As a side note, I'm a big fan of Granada (although only spent a couple days there).

    Speaking of Spanish film, any other Almodovar fans?

    Glenn, I haven't seen the series, but in case it doesn't cover it well and you want to learn even more about Lorca, the months he spent in New York are quite interesting as well (it inspired his last...

    Isner is a nice person, I've seen a lot of him over the years at various tournaments, on and off-court, just much more ignorant than someone with his global experience has an excuse being.

    That can be said about The Wire or Veep as well, and I assume almost all of the above (I hadn't watched any other ones), but I'd definitely re-watch those as well as Six Feet Under!
