That’s so haram maybe in your spare time you should read Qur'an and not indulge in haram shows. When did the rules change? 

I can't find the Hadith but Muslims should dedicate a portion of their time for halal entertainment/pleasure. So as long as it has nothing bad in it, relaxing in that way is actually good. Even a form of worship if the intention is correct.

You're likely to hear about this and given the subject matter its not obvious it would have problematic content. If you watch the first couple of episodes it all seems ok. 

  1. As a drama it is absolutely amazing
  2. In terms of showing how an organisation works and malfunctions it's amazing
  3. The acting, sets etc. are amazing
  4. It's very immersive viewing.
  5. In nearly all the episodes there is nothing objectionable

BUT

In one of the episodes about the miners there is full frontal male nudity. It's a sub-plot to the overall story and you won't miss anything by skipping over that material. It's in episode 3 from about 36:46 to 38:46.

Thank you very much for the heads up, I’ve also heard this is brilliant and will watch it at some point.

@Haji 2003 & @Heavenly_Silk

This is why l miss Blockbuster Video. You could rent a movie like this, while Red Box is has few things l want to see.

I do not pay for cable or satellite because it is not worth the money.

 

EDIT: l forgot to mention l watched dw.com 's "Close-Up" on Qatar. Some politics, some their economy and some cultural (Qatar has more camels than people.)

This is currently on the BBC, but I am giving the IMDB link for those of you who are blocked by their 'paywall'

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10911538/

It's a documentary series (3 parts) called, 'Rise of the Nazis'. Usually these are quite predictable, but this one actually adds value. It's a fairly detailed account of the political machinations that preceded the Nazi takeover.

Just shows how many miscalculations there were on the part of anti/non Nazis for them to seize power.

Does the film make clear that it was the Army that groomed and put him in power? And that Hitler worked as a domestic intelligence agent?

Yes. There's quite a bit on the role played by Kurt von Schleicher and there's also quite a bit on the role played by Franz von Papen and there's a long shadow cast by Hindenburg.  But there is nothing about Hitler and whether he worked as a domestic intelligence agent. There is quite a bit on the demise of the SA.

Yes, even the Army started to worry about them.

During Hitler's imprisonment, is there anything on Gen. Haushofer and his student-aide/liason Hess' visits and assistance on writing Mein Kampf ?

It does not go back that far. It starts around the time that the Nazis are becoming a political force and on Schleicher's radar as a possible counterweight to the communists etc. The German establishment/aristcocracy saw them as a tool that could be used. And clearly Hitler played them very well.

This was more "Germany's hope". That is why he got oratory lessons; was 'taught' how to dress by one of the Wagner women and she helped him learn how to socialize (this is before she understood what was happening and she sent her daughters to live in Chicago); and so on. Von Pappen and friends realized they "lost control" three weeks after Hitler became Chancellor. 

Schleicher l had to read on. His alliance with Rohm doomed them both by both the Army leadership and Hitler.

Paddington 2 - watched with children. A story with morals surprisingly. Cartoon with real actors.

The Terror (TV) - 10 episodes. A serial about two 17th century navy ships, English, charged by the Admiralty to search for a passage to China by traveling the frozen northern sea above Canada. Good acting. I was searching for something to watch, read description, watched the first ep and got hooked. Amazing till the end.

No nudity of any kind If I recall correctly.
