When I saw Netflix had this I had to watch all 20 episodes...Im certain not too many of you remember this show but boy it was great I loved watching it on fridays as a kid.....
Gotta love Carl! lol
Actually its kinda cool with this show to compare. No computers, no cell phones, typewriters lol, news was just as important and the means in which it was reported was very efficient for that timeframe..One of my favorite shows as a kid. I'll have to watch them again! Hopefully I won't be disappointed? It's tough to watch anything from the 70s today.
The Iron Lady
Recommended. Worth watching if only to see Meryl Streep's astonishing performance. It's as if she is possessed by the spirit of Margaret Thatcher. The movie itself wasn't what I expected- it's an intimate portrait of an elderly Maggie having flashbacks to the pivotal events of her life in politics, including when she initially embarked on her career (another actress plays the young Thatcher), some of which were downright raucous. For example, the scenes surrounding the British defense of the Falklands were gripping, despite knowing its outcome. Other events come as a complete shock. One question I had, without giving much away, is how the screenwriter could have known about Thatcher's condition as she aged- or was it fabricated as a literary device to justify the flashbacks? The supporting cast is excellent, some of whom look uncannily like their historical counterparts.
