"Hanna"

Season 1 is on Amazon Prime Video.

Eight episodes, each about an hour.

After the first two I wasn't clear about what exactly was going down but no matter: it's visually arresting with wonderful cinematography and fine actors.

After Episodes 3 & 4 last night, the fog obscuring the story is starting to clear — but not completely.

There are three main characters: Hanna, played by Esme Creed-Miles; Erik Heller, played by Joel Kinnaman; and Marissa Wiegler, played by Mireille Enos, who I always thought was French, only now learning she's American, born in Kansas City and a graduate of BYU.

Everyone's very good, but Enos is great: her performance gets stronger and more real-seeming with every episode; she's just superb.

Looking forward to 5/6/7/8.

Don't move into a new place before using this excellent tool.

Above, my hood.

It pays to visit your prospective new crib at all hours and on weekends too: it's nice to know that you can hear the roar of the crowd and the P.A. announcer calling the local high school's games from your prospective new digs before you sign.

And the insane parties down the block on Friday and Saturday night: your realtor — even if she/he knows about them, which they most likely don't — won't tell you even if they do.

And then there's the fact that there was a murder in your prospective house thirty years ago: neighbors like me who've been here forever can tell you all sorts of things if you take the time and trouble to listen.

Full disclosure: in fact, there was a murder in a home in my subdivision about thirty years ago.

Not to worry, though: the psychotic adult daughter of the home's owner killed Mrs. Chase right in her driveway with a handgun because (so I heard) voices in her head told her to do it.

Gucci Flashtrek Sneakers

Gucci sneaker $1 590 copy

Removable crystal strap (but why would you do that?).

A snip at $1,590.

Come on, you know you want a pair.

If these don't get you into the club, nothing will.
