Excellent, gripping eight-part series on Amazon Prime.

Andrea Riseborough, Harold Torres, and Dane DeHaan — the latter two new to me — are superb.

Wonderful photography in places around the world as the drug deal from hell — five tons of pure cocaine — makes its way from Mexico to Europe.

Bird and Cat

YouTube caption: 'I was just sitting here doing something close to nothing (but different than the day before) when a beautiful bird alighted outside my window about ten feet away. For once, I was quick enough to get my phone and camera on it. Gray Cat joined me to make observations."

Indoor Snowball Fight

From websites:

Whether you're a kid, an adult, or an adult kid, you're gonna love these Indoor Snowballs.

You won't have to worry about the kids getting injured, or Aunt Mary's ashes being knocked over.

The snowballs are made from a cotton-wool-like material which is very soft and very light — but not too light.

They're still heavy enough to be accurate, so you can hit someone in the face and it won't hurt.

25 snowballs for $14.99.
