Is the group private or public. I just posted an article in there.

2.1  author  Dig  replied to  Perrie Halpern R.A. @2    3 weeks ago

It's not private, I just turned off the option of promoting articles to the front page. I wasn't sure if articles about tv shows rolling all over the front page were going to be annoying or not.

I kind of want to turn it on, so people can see them easier and talk about them if they want. 

If it's Ok with you, as site owner, I'll go ahead and change it.

Let me know. :)

Hmm. It looks like you're offline right now, Perrie.

Not knowing when you'll be back, I think I'll switch it over to promote on the front page and see how it goes.

If you decide later that you don't like it, I can always turn it off again.

Not a specific movie or show but a channel. INSP. They show mostly westerns and it has been my go to for 'zoning out' and getting away from the real world. It's made me a Gunsmoke junkie. If you get a chance to watch 'How the West was won', I recommend that too. A couple months ago they played to whole series chronologically. I've even come to like Audie Murphy. Go figure. 

As a John Wayne addict, I love me some westerns.

John Wayne addict,

El Dorado, Big Jake, Mclintock

5.1.1  Dulay  replied to  Veronica @5.1    3 weeks ago

The Searchers!

5.1.2  Veronica  replied to  Dulay @5.1.1    3 weeks ago

Haven't watched that one in a while.  I should.

5.1.3  Dulay  replied to  Veronica @5.1.2    3 weeks ago

I have seen it a inordinate number of times. At least twice a year in full and every time I come across it on TV, I watch it from wherever I tuned in. My wife doesn't even bother complaining about it anymore. If it's John Wayne, she knows I'm incorrigible. 

5.1.4  Veronica  replied to  Dulay @5.1.3    3 weeks ago

I am like that with El Dorado.  My husband walks into the room, shakes his head & walks away.  My daughter & I both like to quote from it.  She fell in love with James Caan.  She couldn't believe it when I told her who it was.

I am watching a WW II miniseries called The Liberator.  It is made using a fusion of CGI animation with live action. Pretty incredible.

6.1  JohnRussell  replied to  Ed-NavDoc @6    3 weeks ago

I watched the first two episodes and will watch the other two soon. 

I read that this was originally to be an 8 part live action series. Some sort of production difficulties happened and the decision was made to make it an animation series of 4 episodes.  Although the dialogue would be considered pretty corny for a live action war film, it works with the animation. 

One unique thing about the story, which is based on fact, is that the soldiers are largely American Indians and Mexican Americans , and "Okies". 

Overall good series for those who like war movies.  

6.1.1  JohnRussell  replied to  JohnRussell @6.1    3 weeks ago

Maybe Kavika knows something about the infantry unit depicted in the show. They were called the Thunderbirds. 

6.1.2  Kavika   replied to  JohnRussell @6.1.1    3 weeks ago

It was the US 45th Infantry Divison. The unit patch was originally the Swastika (used by NA's for centuries) but because of Nazi use it the unit dropped it and replaced it with the Native American Thunderbird. They have an incredible combat record. 

The members of the 45th were from New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Oklahoma. Thus, NA's, Mexicans and Okies.

If I remember correctly there were a number of Medal of Honor recipients, three of which were American Indians.

While on furlough I was watching a lot of foreign crime shows on Netflix.  I found them very intriguing.  Bordertown, Ripper Street and Signs are the ones I binged.  The Sinner and Mindhunter were the American crime dramas I binged.
