Movie tip: Perfume allergy in Billion tv-series

Film tips: Parfyme allergi i Billion tv-serie

Billion er en tv-serie på HBO som handler om aksjehandel, lov og rett og jakten på de som ikke følger loven. I sesong 1 avsnitt 3 (ca 27:52 inn i programmet) før og etter et et møte med klienter reagerar Rhoades på at en Spiris har eau de cologne på seg:

Rhoades: “- Har du på deg cologne?”

Spiros: “- Ja”

Rhoades: “- Herregud!”

Litt lenger inn (ca 29:58) etter at møtet var slutt forteller advokaten hva han mener:

Rhoades: “- Det renner fra øynene mine. Hvor mange liter av den dritten spruter du på deg hver morgen Spiros? Tror du den gir deg et ligg? Et tips: Gjør det ikke!”

Og jeg er gla det blir tatt opp fordi det er et samfunnsproblem at folk tar seg til rette og sprer alkoholer og parfymekjemikalier i luften til plage for andre. Langt fra alle setter pris på å bli utsatt for parfyme.

Er det en bra serie? Den er litt glatt i sin framtoning, handlingen er spill for galleriet i store trekk, det handler om å spille ut hverandre og vinne. Noe som dok ikke er bra er alle sexistiske kommentarer, det er veldig mye som spiller på kvinner på en uverdig måte.  De burde få dagsbøter for hver nedverdigende kommentar om kvinner.

Movie tip: Perfume allergy in Billion tv-series

Billion is a television series on HBO that’s about trading, law and justice and the pursuit of those who do not follow the law. In season 1 episode 3 (about 27:52 into the program) before and after a meeting with clients reacts Rhoades to that a colleague has cologne on himself:

Rhoades: “-Are you wearing cologne?”

Spiros: “-Yea”

Rhoades: “-Jesus Christ!”

Rhoades: “-You know, my fucking eyes are watering here,  how many pints of that shitty toilet water do you splash on yourself every morning Spiros? Do You think it is may be going to help you get som tail? Here is a tip: It’s not!”

I’m glad it’s being recorded because it is a social problem that people take matters into their own hands spreading alcohols and perfume chemicals in the air tormenting others. Far from all appreciate being exposed to perfume.

Is it a good series? It is a bit superficial in its appearance, the action is mainly for showing, it is about to play out each other and win. What is not good is all the sexist comments, it is very much playing on women in a degrading manner. They should get a fine for every degrading comment.

Det er få filmer der personer med astma blir framstilt på en god måte. I veldig mange filmer blir personer med astma framstilt som noe å le av der dumme mennesker håner dem med astma. Ikke så i denne filmen, her er det hovedrollen som har astma og som er detektiven i dramaet.

Da Liv og  hennes venn Tomas sykler inn på gården da ser Liv et kattebur for noen sekunder før det forsvinner. På bursdagen hennes ser hun en katt ingen av de andre ser, og på samme dagen får hun diagnosen astma på sjukehuset på grunn av pusteproblemer. De følgende dagene opplever hun fler tilfeller av besøk av katten og hun ser to damer i kjelleren. En av dagene ser hun et foto av ei jente som husker med en katt i fanget og en dame står bak dem, hun tar på bildet og katten slipper løs og løper ut av fotografiet. Ved et tilfelle i kjelleren går damene rett gjennom henne. Ettersom hun er blitt sjuk i astma er foreldrene redd å la  henne dra på cruise.  I kjelleren finner dem et hemmelig rom der de finner en kiste med et fotoalbum og et gammelt kattebur.
