I am listening the debate for the European Parliament election. Bulgarian representatives on the National TV Channel 1. Left to right:

* Populist/Nationalist (demagogue);
* Former Communist 1 (socialist);
* Former Communist 2 (conservative);
* Kind-a Liberal (representing two major minorities);
* North Macedonian theater director (staging The Karamazov Brothers in the National Theater -- why is he there? don't know);
* Moderator (trying to outshout the demagogue)

Who to vote for?

Do you want see a random street in Sofia, Bulgaria? I love this city when it's sunny and I am carefree.

So... 7 out of 10. Quite decent military SF. I gave it an 8 because of the unfair overall rating. Wing Commander (1999) - IMDb
