 Man I'm all for diverse media but I don't think it means seeing put-upon and exploited Chinese people in a british period drama just to show they exist in the early twentieth century with badly written Chinese banners. 

Not to say they didn't exist as exploited people in early twentieth century post-WWI Britain but they don't even have lines, man. 

So so this is me watching Peaky Blinders on Netflix cuz I liked period dramas like Send in the Midwife and The Bletchley Circle. Although I guess it shows that western male period dramas have diametrically opposed themes sometimes.

Ew. I had a bad feeling about Peaky Blinders, thanks for giving me a reason to not want to get into that.

omg Bletchley Circle, tho.

I got sick at the end of this week and I spent the first half day home watching Send in the Midwife. I'd been waffling about it, but Netflix has been reccing it to me for a while and my head was hurting too much to handle the subtitles on Atelier yet.

Thanks for the rec! It's really good, I'm enjoying it!
