    No, I haven't missed the 'o' from the end of the thread title (especially today!) It is a TV series which has been recommended to me and one episode in, I'm hooked! If you like a bit of gentle sci-fi, you might enjoy it too.

    I went through the series in a week. Agree it's good. Season 2 is due in the new year.

    Sky 1

    "Montego Air Flight 828 from Jamaica to New York City experiences a brief period of severe turbulence. When they land, the passengers and crew learn that over five and a half years have passed while they were in the air, during which time they were presumed dead. As they reintegrate themselves into present-day society, the passengers begin to face the fact that their lives—and loved ones—are not the same as they were before, while they also begin to experience guiding voices and visions representing events yet to occur." - Wikipedia

    Sounds boring, and I will not ever pay one penny piece to Murdoch for his fascist biased right wing I-want-to-control-your-lives Sky output. Just saying.

    Sounds intriguing, almost a bit inspired by Malaysia flight 370...
    ... there's something uneasy about flying. It's a liminal space, a place between worlds...

    And there was me feeling smug that I had a play on words with the thread title...

    Wrong root though. Perhaps we should go back a 1000 years to when man used to be genderless.

    Hollywood may at last be turning a corner. New Ghostbusters film looks woke free:

    Yes. That’s why I said “a bit inspired by”.
