Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
« on: August 08, 2015, 03:09:01 am »
Don't know if this is available everywhere but I can recommend this he BBC adaptation of this book.  One part period drama one part magic with some great performances.   
Some of the magic effects really push the  budget for a BBC show.

Definitely on my list.  

I loved the book.
Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Ooo. I did too.

I wonder if it's streaming?
The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. [...] The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most.--Elon Musk

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," [Bill] Gates wrote. "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."

Amazon's selling a digital copy for $20.

I picked up the blu-ray on my lunch break.  'Bout halfway through Part I now.  Loving it.
