Jonn, I am completely hooked on The Fall too, I could watch it all in one go if I didn't have to sleep at some point.

Alan Turin has been voted the Icon of the 20th century above Nelson Mandela ..Martin
Luther King Ghandi and hundreds of other worthy named people from all over the world

To think..... how he was reviled when he was alive.
Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

^^^^  Sometimes it takes the world (and public opinion) a very long time to catch up.  Very few people, mainly b/c his work was so bleeding edge and highly classified, knew of Turing's pivoting role in winning the war - especially breaking the "unbreakable" German Enigma machine.  All the public mostly knew was that Turing was caught committing homosexual acts, which were illegal, and he chemically castrated and then supposedly committed suicide.  The public will probably never know the truth about the latter - only what we were told aka "London Spy".    (Spelling corrected.. sorry it was very early.. Thanks!)

Long overdue.

I'm sorry to be pedantic, and I don't mean to embarrass anybody, but the name is "Turing."

I'm watching London Spy right now. Actually I am watching two shows at the same time, it's a little confusing.

It's about time Turing gets the recognition he deserves, but that will never erased the cruelty with which he was treated. It's always bittersweet, I am happy but at the same time can't avoid thinking about how lonely he must have felt, and how betrayed. Sh*t.

Yeap.. Thank You and no problem.   It is generally very early when I read/post. Sometimes my caffeine has not kicked in. We talked about Alan and his "relatively unknown" contribution to Computer Science (not so much about the questions around his death) during my college classes.  V.

I realised yesterday that the two series I am watching (and loving), "London Spy" and "The Fall", have the same director!

I worked from home due to the bad weather here in NJ, and watched a documentary that I would never have seen had I not been home at that time.

Porndemic - The inside story of the 1998 HIV outbreak that tore through the San Fernando Valley adult film industry told by the people who experienced it. Using archival footage and exclusive, original interviews with such recognizable adult performers as Ron Jeremy, Ginger Lynn, Marc Wallice and Tricia Devereaux among other, the film goes behind the scenes of the porn industry as it confronted a deadly disease which was a threat to it's very existence.


Porndemic Trailer


The film was a mix of archival interviews, recent interviews, and edits from porn movies.  The story tells about the initial outbreak of HIV in the porn industry, and then focuses on adult star Marc Wallice.  Some in the movie make the claim that Wallice was "patient zero" and that he knowingly had unprotected sex with actresses to keep working, and ended up infecting porn actresses with HIV.  There are claims he forged his test results to show he was negative, and that he refused to take tests to keep working.

Wallice is interviewed in the film, and he denies these claims.

I'm still watching I Am the Night, with Chris Pine, but it's becoming less interesting to me for some reason. I'll stay with it though!  ;D

I watched it this morning. To be honest, I think they just looked for a scapegoat. The guy was a complete ar**** and a menace, but it's completely naif to think that all can be blamed on only one person. Come on, they kept at it as if nothing happened during the harder times of the AIDS epidemic, the whole industry is to blame.
