Dirty Money (2016-?): Drug Short
Wall Street is a place of extremes. A commotion started over the drug company Valeant which was a house of cards. Valeant caused fear, anxiety and deep sadness by predatory drug pricing which is still going on. Things get absolutely worse. Sick people have trepidation and the Valeant elite have no fear they would ever be caught or face repercussions.
Customers were alarmed and concerned. Valeant increased drug prices. People wonder how wealth is generated and how is it shared. Valeant did negative acts that were efficient, organised and relentless. There was a sytematic undoing. A woman had to pay $200 per tablet. Vital drugs go up and up in price due to greed and avarice. Drugs that used to be $1 a tablet are now costing thousands. There was catastrophic mismanagement and deep denialism and existential implications.
There was concerted, endless, heedless consupmption. The Valeant lot glamourised a model of capitalism and a culture of infinite disposability. Unpleasant truths are revealed. Effete elites wreck the livelihoods and health of honest to god American workers. The elite are impervious to reality. Elites had open contmept or mockery for their own customers. There was doom and panic and a desperate battle. A big scene was made about it. There was stress and frustration.
There was a world full of madness and fraud. This ep maintains engagrment and names were taken from a Stephen King novel. Martin Shkreli an argumentitive and surly git became the poster boy for this case. His morals were disengaged. There was no enthusiasm from anyone to do anything. Martin Shkreli had ebullience and energy in his own crapulence and contentment in himself. There was no responsibility by anyone. Hilary Clinton got involved and ranted about a case where a drug went up 5000% from $13:50 a pill.
The company was compared to Enron and the company imploded. Insufferably perky US tv hosts are seen. Drugs were wantonly expensive. People were and are miserable. Nothing changed and nobody has terrible shame. This was okay and people deserved more harsh judgment.

The famous HIV ad featuring John Hurt intoning: “Don't die of ignorance” airs. Ritchie's parents prefer to watch Michael Barrymore.

English people play Italians. A detective has scrupulous integrity, allegedly. Rufus Sewell stars alongside Stanley Townsend and Ben Miles. This was cancelled because the BBC said there were enough male detectives on tv, yes really. A man avenges his wrongful conviction for murder by murdering multiple people. There are ghastly traps. There is mumbling and Zen harassing an abuse victim. An 'Italian' has an Irish accent. This was hokey.
“Heading for career oblivion.”
