I used to work with a welder who was from Jamaica he told me all Jamaicans have two first names. His name was Abraham George
Was Abe G from OGJamaica or from Jamaica Plains, NY or some other Jamaicaetcetc?

I ask because, while I cannot speak from personal experience (having never been to OGJ, and having only ever transited JP,NY enroute to JFK (and certainly never having had any welding work done while passing through there, iirc)), and so perhaps all Jamaican-origin welders indeed do have two first names, or maybe it might just be that Abe's brothers Bill, Edwin, Kevin, Marcus, Samuel George and sisters Pauline and Susie of course fit that rule, I'm not sure that either way we should trust Abe regarding all Jamaicans, given this list (which I assume represents a decent cross-section of Jamaicans with names).

I do know a guy named Frank The Welder (with a capital "T" sometimes but not always), but he's not Jamaican, nor even from the NYC area. He's just a nice crotchety older bearded guy from Vermont, who makes really great bicycle frames and really great maple syrup (but "Frank The Welder And Maple Syrup Maker" just doesn't have the same ring to it to him, I guess).

Lupin S2 is out, but despite watching all of the first, Netflix didn't show it to me, put it in any new/suggested categories, etc.

I had to hear about it from my Mom and then go manually search for it.

Anyone seen Travelers? Showing up on my Netflix feed, rated highly on Imdb/RT, but don't think I've heard anyone talk about it

I've watched the first season after seeing it pop up in my Netflix recommendations for a while. I like it so far; the base premise of time travel is handled reasonably logically and the character development is solid. It's not going to blow your mind, but it's good entertainment. I'd rate it a B, with the caveat that it could change with future seasons.

Just started this today. Finished ep 1.

Close to 200 people board a plane from Jamaica back to NYC. After a mid flight "incident", the plane makes a landing at an upstate NY airport.......FIVE YEARS after takeoff! Huh?

Air traffic control is confused. The flight was reported missing 5 years prior and everyone on board presumed dead. They are all healthy and just as confused.

The people in their lives have aged and many have moved on. However, some try to make it work.

But that's not all.....the 200 people are hearing voices and those voices lead them to do things that can't be explained. I can't explain it either as I am only finished with ep1.

I would give this a 3/5 so far. I need to know/see where it is headed before a final score.
