Jane Stork and Ma Anand Sheela, onscreen throughout the six-hour documentary series “Wild Wild Country” on Netflix, look and sound like friends of your grandmother who have dropped by to reminisce about the good old days. They don’t look like leaders of an international religious movement known for Rolls-Royces and ecstatic group sex, or women who went on the lam to Europe before serving time for crimes that include arson, wiretapping and attempted murder.
This Swedish series uses the house style of Nordic noir — subdued but highly charged, like a dream always on the verge of a nightmare — but it crosses a typical conspiracy-minded crime story with a spooky eco-horror fable. The resulting hybrid, a police procedural with elements of contagion thriller and vampire tale, is handled so adroitly that it requires surprisingly little suspension of disbelief.
If you’re a fan of the television subgenre that pairs a gifted, impulsive, often childlike male civilian with a tough, straight-arrow, lonely female cop, then you were probably a fan of “Castle,” one of the most successful shows of the type. (Other recent or current examples: “The Mentalist,” “Perception,” “Forever,” “A.P.B.,” “Lucifer.”)You’re also in luck. Maybe. Sunday night brings not one but two new examples of the genre. “Deception” on ABC pairs a magician and an F.B.I. agent.
@sandwich345@davidchang Yes it's nice to see so many Asian faces, but it's not a zero-sum game. It's striking that (1) they spend a lot of the fried-chicken episode talking about racism and (2) that's, in my memory, the only episode with any black cooks in it
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
