Barry, Like Freddie, you cannot accept that what goes around, comes around. People don't like you, because you are sadly, a shitty person, not because of some dark forces or low vibes attacking you. It is YOU, dude. You act like an arrogant judging ass-hole most of the time, and the world lets you know it. If that weren't the case, you wouldn't be so concerned about the few people left in this world who pay you any attention at all, on this forum. So, kindly fuck off, and shut the fuck up - I am so tired of your tales of personal oppression and woe. Your parents did a crap job of raising you to be a responsible adult, and now at 70, it is obviously too damned late.

I would recommend it -- with some reservations -- but to tell the truth it's all a bit mysterious and I don't know whether you could really find or watch it if I did recommend it. It was originally broadcast on UKTV's Yesterday channel, and pre-billed as "shocking." It was also pre-billed as being a "four-part series." I've only been able to find three episodes, so that causes me to wonder what happened to the fourth one? Not to mention the series itself, which it is somewhat difficult to find out information about. It *IS* shocking, and intentionally so. It is about as biased against the Catholic Church and religion in general as it is possible to be. It is also -- as much as I hate to admit this -- primarily historically accurate. The first episode (the only one I've watched) dealt with the origins of the Inquisition, and thus the Cathars and the Templars, two societies with which I have a somewhat scholarly relationship. I kept waiting for the announcer (who I hated) to say something I knew to be historically wrong as part of his rant against the maniacs in the Catholic Church who had perpetrated these atrocities...and I kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting. In that first episode, I only detected a handful of historical errors or inaccuracies, none of them major. Yes, the series' depiction of these times is biased. And yes, it is designed to be sensationalist. The violence and torture depicted in the first episode are graphic and horrific, and intentionally so. They are *also* historically accurate. The Catholic Church really did *do* all of these things to hundreds of thousands of fellow Christians, in the Church's first (but far from last) genocide. Anyway, I found myself thinking of this series -- and this mindset -- again this morning, after logging into Fairfield Life. So, for those who are interested in such things, I thought I'd pass along a few pointers to this series, even if you're not likely to be able to see it, possibly even in the UK. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3892282/reference http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3892282/reference Inquisition | Yesterday Channel http://yesterday.uktv.co.uk/shows/inquisition/ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3892282/reference "Inquisition" (2014) With Toby Green, John Kirk, Lucy Sackville.
