I've watched the first 10 so far. There's quite a bit of mileage left after all I reckon.

I've only completed S2 and that was a while ago, I will need to recap before attempting S3 as I started and didn't have a clue of the names being mentioned

This site may be useful. Pictures and names of characters. The episode button gives nice reports of what happened in each episode and may jog your memory.

House of Cards completed and now I'm continuing to catch up with House of Lies (also on Netflix).

I loved the episode with Matt Damon playing 'himself' - always good to see someone not taking themselves seriously.

This is odd. Tonight I caught up with episode 4 of The Night Manager and then downloaded ep 5 from last night.

But the site I was using also had ep 6 which hasn't been on yet.
(Just in case I watch before the weekend, don't worry, I won't give anything away)

I double checked iPlayer and confirmed it's not available yet.

Although a little slow, Thirteen on BBC 3 has been quite good.

That was timely. I noted mention of it during the closing credits of The Night Manager but I was so surprised at finding ep 6, I forgot to check it out. Just downloading the first part.

Which is surprising as it is only a five part series.

You meant streaming rather than downloading ...

Did I? I believe streaming is watching as it streams, whereas downloading is saving it for later.

I suppose it comes down to the rights and wrongs of downloading - I used to torrent and Snoop repeatedly slapped my paws and threatened to withdraw my pocket money if I continued and then mini-Stinky was found to be even worse than I was. Snoop had been getting the emails warning her and she was worried about being labelled a crim

I kind of saw their point so ditched our satellite coz it was crap anyhow and just stream now. My conscience is slightly eased but probably hypocritically so. I still go to the cinema occasionally though unlike Oinks Saloon Bar Movie house there is no booze
