Trivia

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is a Latin phrase found in the work of the Roman poet Juvenal from his Satires (Satire VI, lines 347-348). It is literally translated as "Who will guard the guards themselves?", though it is also known by variant translations, such as "Who watches the watchers?" and " Who will watch the watchmen?". The original context deals with the problem of ensuring marital fidelity, though the phrase is now more commonly used to refer to the problem of controlling the actions of persons in positions of power, an issue discussed by Plato in the Republic.

Nothing short of spectacular
21 October 2019 | by daoiozSee all my reviews

Had to write this review considering all the hate. Great pilot, one of the best ones I've seen in a long time. Beautifully shot, great acting, intense, relevant and highly entertaining. If you have any taste for thought provoking movies, books or shows, you'll love it.
