Lost in Space Reboot 2018 – Review
Referring to my previous post announcing the return of the classic 1960s TV sci fi series, here is my take on Lost in Space – Review,
Jean & I binged watched all the episodes over two nights. In our humble opinion Netflix have done well with this reboot. I watched the original series when a youngster. It was good to hear the original & iconic theme music, especially when the Robinson family’s spacecraft Jupiter 2 took to the skies.
In these introduction episodes, there are a few changes from the original plot and storyline as of course can be expected as reboots usually vary a little bit from the original.
The Robinson family are part of other colonists, including other families too, each with their own Jupiter designated spacecraft. The Jupiters’ are docked in the much larger mother ship called ‘The Resolution’, which has a mysterious and secret faster than normal human technology space drive.
This mysterious drive is the key to the unfolding story.
The Resolution is taking the colonists to a nearby exo planet near the star Alpha Centauri.
A catastrophe occurs and the family have to flee the mother ship in their Jupiter(2) & land on an unknown planet which can sustain life.
Quite a few media critics who saw the first two episodes on preview, were lukewarm in their comments .
As I have found with other reboot TV series such as the excellent ‘Star Trek Discovery’, the whole series has to be watched to get a truer opinion. At the end of its first run after initial criticisms, ‘Discovery’ won over the majority of it’s critics and die hard Star Trek fans. The characters are seen to evolve over the series as does the story line.
The (different from the original) bickering and a touch dysfunctional Robinson family finally come together in adversity as these critics would have seen had they kept with the series.
Jean & I liked the evolving characters and exciting story, there was some funny humour and excellent CGI, overall a good reboot. We hope it will return for series two.
We currently await to see if Lost In Space will be renewed by Netfix for a second series. The viewing figures are apparently good and we should know soon.
Jean said that this reboot gives a different connotation to:
Danger, Will Robinson!
All in all, we highly recommend this series for an exciting watch for the whole family!
Netflix recently confirmed that there will be a second series, possibly airing later in 2019 or early 2020. 🙂
Vice Presidency of the Philippines – Latest
The 2016 election for President and Vice President in the Philippines is a worthy saga on par with the adventures of the classic Beowulf.
In fact it is more exacting in parts as it has given not only the Philippines but the world Duterte, a charismatic man, though not to everyone’s cup of tea, someone who cannot be ignored.
This election had made famous Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines as its duly elect president and rather infamous with the rest of the world 🙂 because of his bloody war on drugs.
The lesser role of vice president, though Leni Robredo was duly sworn as the winner, is still being contested due to alleged ballots tampering and cheating.
Bongbong Marcos had continually opined that there was a massive anomaly during the election. His complaint had been finally heard by the Supreme Court and had started a recount in the last couple of days.
This new recount, which is done manually, had apparently not started well as four of the psychologically tested number crunchers have resigned.
Perhaps they have to look into the psychological form of testing as well. 🙂
I told you, it is all exciting.
Will Leni be able to stay?
Watch this space.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Today is Palm Sunday, the start of the Holy Week, where the crisis of the cross is imminent.
Let us take this Holy Week as a time to ruminate the lives we lead.
To start with, here is a wonderful food for thought:
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

I think the best way to eat beef is by slow cooking it in stew or casserole to make every sinew mouth-wateringly soft especially when using cheap cuts of meat.
Goulash is a Hungarian national dish. This dish is a history in itself.
During the 9th century, goulash or rather gulyas was a staple of Hungarian herdsmen, looking after the cattle. They used to eat cuts of beef boiled with vegetables. The word gulyas actually means herdsmen.
Then came the 15th century and the invasion of the Ottoman Turks. The Turks introduced paprika to Hungary.
Hungary loved paprika.
They embraced paprika into their cuisine in such a big way. Gulyas got the paprika treatment, which we know now as goulash.
To cook an authentic goulash, be generous with the paprika.
Recipe to follow and the postulant cook is experimenting!
Peter and I were out and about today; we took an uber to go for Peter’s physio at the Royal Free Hospital.
Our Uber driver was really chatty. After talking about the weather, we told him that it would be the first day of spring tomorrow, 20 March.
He mentioned that it would be an important day for him tomorrow. In fact he will be taking a few days off beginning tomorrow.
He said it is Persian New Year.
He further elaborated that the first day of the New Year is spent visiting friends and relatives who are older than the visitors. Parents, older brother, older sister, uncles, aunties, etc.
On the second day, it would be the turn of the younger ones, especially the children, who gets presents, usually money. So it would be normal to see Iranians handing out fiver or tenner to children during the next few days.
I asked him how to wish someone a Persian New Year. He said carefully, Nowruz Mubarak. I repeated it and he was very impressed. 🙂
So wishing you all a Nowruz Mubarak.
He said that a lot of pomegranates will be on offer as well as recipes with saffron. There will be a lot of sweet things like cakes and biscuits.
He mentioned a funny thing, he said that they even have a version of Santa Clause during the New Year celebration. Interesting!
The family get-together will happen during the weekend for grand eating out or dining in.
He said that in Iran that new year festivities usually last for a good couple of weeks.
Happy Persian New Year to you all!
Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.

Love this quote. It means do not engaged in a fight or debate with someone who is at the ready with their pens or fingers in their keyboards.
They are prepared to give their opinions to kingdom come! It will be a never-ending battle of words and wits and even sometimes stupidity.

For the 31 years I have been living in London, UK, this winter snow 2018 has been one of the most ferocious one I have ever seen.
There have been fatalities due to the freezing weather. Public transports and the traffics , of course, as always are the first one affected.
Apparently because UK generally gets a mild winter and we do not get many inches of snow, the Government thought it was not worth to invest billions in once in a decade of 6 inches of snow. We just have to grin and bear it for a few days and hope for the best.
Perhaps a rethink is now needed.
This 2018 winter of discontent is due to the unwelcome beast from the East, which may be a product of global warming. It is a polar vortex, which is a mass of super extreme cold air which sits on the top of the north and south poles.
What made the beast from the East more ferocious is the 70mph strength of Emma Storm coming from Portugal. When she met the beast, all snow broke loose, causing disruptions in many parts in the UK.
