    I agree completely, there is no valid reason in any of the season to justify any kind of reconcillation at the end of it. And I do not recall a holiday special at all so you are probably right. Maybe a Valentimes one later?

    I liked Weeds until I think the 4th season? They move at some point and after that I just lost interest. Good show overall though.

    On this topic cause I think there were some Babylon 5 fans here, Mira Furlan (Delenn) died yesterday sadly. Apparently it was complications from West Nile, which I was not expecting as a cause of death. Really sucks though, it's still my all time favourite show.

    Do you mean the actor passed, or the character died in an episode?

    Caught Lupin on Netflix. I enjoyed it and can't wait for more.

    The trailer on Netflix looked interesting but I only have a passing familiarity with the Lupin III anime/manga series, think I saw one of the movies. I don't think the Netflix series is based on the anime but maybe they are both based on something else?

    I don't think it was anime. It's in French, about a "gentleman burglar" with a great cliffhanger ending. I really enjoyed it.

    So according to Google it's based on a series of stories by a French author from around the turn of the 20th century. The anime series of films Lupin III is also based loosely on those stories with the title character, also a gentleman thief, being the grandson of the original Lupin. I vaguely remember watching one of the films in anime club my first semester of college but I can't really remember too many details since I only saw it once like 15 years ago.

    Anime or no, I could be wrong there, it's worth the watch.

    Sounds like it's in the line of Ice Road Truckers. I'll have to look for it...unless it's no Discovery+. Seems like all the shows the family and I like to watch have gone there.

    I remembered the movie it was The Castle of Cagliostro (also on Netflix). It's apparently the most popular Lupin III film and I hadn't realized that it marked the directorial debut of Hayao Miyazaki who later co-founded Studio Ghibli and directed My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service. Anyways found it interesting that Monkey Punch, the artist that produced the original manga, never got permission from Leblanc or his estate to use the Lupin character or namesake. Japan didn't enforce trade copyrights at that time and it was considered common use by the time Leblanc's estate pursued legal action there but copyright issues lead to the name often being changed to Wolf or Rupan internationally. I might go back and watch the film and the new series both on Netflix.

    As far as I can see it is just regular Discovery, same narrator as Highway Through Hell, and 401 Heavy Rescue
