A GOOD SPY THRIVES UNDER PRESSURE

A GOOD SPY THRIVES UNDER PRESSURE

A good spy thrives under pressure.

How do you react under pressure?
Can you achieve the goal?

The target in question is a coffee prepared with a fantastic espresso machine

Unlikely and unexpected is the specialist intent on preparation.

What could possibly happen if the Terminator “himself” prepared your coffee?

The result explodes in full force in the commercial introducing the new Netflix series Heart of stone starring Gal Gadot

Schwarzenegger quotes True lies, what spy movie would you quote?

The very famous 007 medium sweet for example?

The Condor asked, “but what if the pressure wasn’t there?”

Pressure or no pressure? Enigma … 

Or a palindrome

Definitely intelligence stuff …

The best spy is undoubtedly hidden in Jingle all the way, or not! What do you say?

A good spy thrives under pressure.

I had fun mentioning some spy movies, I suppose you recognized them all.

What, on the other hand, is your favorite film inspired by this strand?

If I say spy, what is the first name that comes to mind?

Can we agree that Mata Hari is perhaps the quintessential name? I would say that Mata, short for Margaretha, is even synonymous with spy.

The word spy comes from the Gothic spaíha according to the Treccani vocabulary, but derives from the French espie according to the etymological vocabulary, so the duality is extrinsic from the origin of the name.

Curious, isn’t it?

It is rather difficult to establish even the first spy in history, so perhaps we can settle for the first spy who makes explosive coffee, can’t we?

1899

1899

1899 is an eight-episode series, or rather, it is “a short journey” as described in the bio, created by Jantje Friese & Baran bo Odar for Netflix.

Short journey because, as communicated by the authors themselves, the series stops at the end of the first season, although two more were planned, as for Dark

Dark is referred to because the authors of 1899 are: Jantje Friese & Baran bo Odar, whose profiles by the way are currently non-existent …

On my opionion this series is definitely ICONIC at first because of this book:

May your coffee kick in before reality does.

Perfect.

AlsoI had one of those musically satisfying moments at the end of the first episode.

A surprise that was repeated in the concept, with different expressions though for each episode.

If you have already seen the series, we can talk about it in the comments: did you recognize each time?

The theme song then is a cover in the fitting interpretation of Eliot Sumner … last name that will surely ring a bell, right? 

Also ça va sans dire: again the quotes and references chase each other, so much so that I encountered one of the themes I am particularly fond of,  in addition to the clues related to computer binary codes.

One of these coincides with a scene that I loved: cups raised in unison!!

Did you notice the glitch at this juncture?

So three things I am partial to, yet amazingly there is another one!

Triangles … that’s all I’ll add.
