Film Recommendation  
See Lunopolis. Period.
"Two documentary filmmakers accidentally uncover the greatest moon secret the world has never known, and the powerful organization determined to keep it that way."
Not much of a description, really. Makes it seem trite and forgettable. It's not. Yes, it's low-budget, filmed in a "documentary" style, and starts off a little cheesy, but this was all by design. What follows is one of the best written sci-fi* stories I've experienced in a while, with some tight acting, a great ending, and some surprising moments that came across as very believable.

Netflix has it on Instant Watch, so there's no excuse for those of you with an account. For those without, track it down. Do it now.


*Don't let the "sci-fi" designation throw you, this is not Star Trek. Fairly down-to-earth, real people dealing, there's-more-to-the-world-than-you-know stuff.

Sweet, thanks for the rec. This week I've been gorging on The IT Crowd.

IT Crowd kicks ass, though the 4th season was a little weaker than the others. I'm a big fan of both Richard Ayoade and Matt Berry.
