Courtesy of NetFlix, we’ve been watching Shogun, that great mini-series from 1980. Wonderful stuff – I’d forgotten how the filmmaker just let the scenes run in Japanese – back in 1980, when Pal Nancy and I watched it, we became so immersed in the language that we came to understand it, sort of. What a shame the networks can no longer afford to do these projects today. But how lucky that they survive via NetFlix. Next up, Winds of War.
