  • The Hulu documentary about Fyre may be even better

    • agreed, considering the company that worked to put Fyre together produced the netflix doc. i was shocked to learn that after watching the hulu doc and had to go back to the netflix credits to see for myself. throws a far different light on how they are portrayed.

      • Ok now I HAVE to see the Hulu doc.

        • I guess I’ll have to wait until they make it to prime. I’m cheap!

  • “If only Billy McFarland had had Claire Reishman in the mix, things would have gone so, so differently.”

    That got a huge snort from me!

  • Wait. All I heard was you don’t Hulu. You must Hulu if only long enough to binge Handmaid’s Tale.

    • Binging HT is probably for advanced players only. I’m a big fan but it’s such hard going, I find 2 episodes in one sitting more than enough (just like The Americans).

      • Agreed, Sarah. Season 1 especially was a real rollercoaster of depressed and angry. Even though I’d read the book when it came out years ago, after the first couple episodes I thought, well, maybe I can’t watch this. Now in season three, I’m really just rooting for her.

  • To be clear, it is CRITICAL that you watch both documentaries. Call up your cousin’s roommate for her Hulu password, I promise it’s worth it.

  • Dear MDK founders, I have to say the following, I love receding your posts. I’ve enjoyed reading about and listening to a wide variety of subjects! Quite far from knitting info, but possible to work at the craft while having my eyes and more inportantly, having my brain opened up!! Thank you very( oops!) can’t use very! Thank you from my expanded brain!

  • “That is Darwinism at it’s finest” made me do the snortylaugh 🙂

  • This is the most bizarre story! I’m watching the Netflix one right now. And I’ve got my sister’s Hulu so I can watch the Hulu one!

  • This does sound fascinating, like watching a very expensive train wreck. However, I just got through with Ma’am Darling: 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret, and am not yet ready for another experience of rich people behaving badly. I thought that I would love the biography, and at first I did, but I ended up not being able to read all the 99 glimpses. I felt sort of sick, as if I had eaten way too much of a favorite formerly delicious junk food. The Guardian had a good review of it. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/sep/17/maam-darling-by-craig-brown-review-princess-margaret

    • Thanks for the recommendation.
