Just something you can dip in and out of when you fancy it.
It's all about backstory, and 'series arcs' now.

I think person of Interest is the closest thing to this kind of show, but even that has backstory taking up valuable punch up/car chase/gun fight time

(, Tue 13 Nov 2012, 10:53, Reply)
This is a normal post I hate to be a pedant (no, really)
but it's 70% of their incomes over a certain level. I know that's still unacceptable to some people, but saying it's 70% of their income is misstating how graduated income tax works.

Also maybe worth noting that the top rate of federal income tax in the US was over 80% for 20 years after World War 2 when they experienced a massive boom in prosperity, and remained at 70% or over until the Reagan years without the nation collapsing into the sea.

This is a normal post "Taxes are what we pay for civilized society"
Or, at least, so said the the late Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes in the USA. Seems these days taxes are what the proles pay for a civilized society while certain large corporations are content to take all the benefits of various states' infrastructures while contributing as little as possible to them. I think people's concern is justified on those grounds alone.

But yay, fluffy animals. Bring back pictures, maybe? :)

(admittedly on their weaker than weak drivetime show)

had some tax bod from some tax specialist co (was it kpmg?) arguing that poor Starbucks' had consistently made a loss in the UK and therefore paying no tax was fair. The interviewer just wasn't equipped at all to argue how the flow of money might be engineered in such a way to make this look plausable, and completely missed the point that if they make 1% profit (as he admitted "some" of the shops do), 20% of whatever the real number/amount for that should still be payable.

That's probably because it's like the bully at school who always robbed kids' dinner money and always gets away with it, then one day a teacher clocks them at it, they get taken to heel for it and everyone is happy to see them get what they deserve.

To be fair, i think apple have probably made a lot of money by ripping off a lot of people who can't afford to take them to heel for it (obviously they aren't the only company to have done this), throwing their weight around and so on, so when someone can afford to pull them up on it and does it's just good to see.
