Have seen Jake Thackary live in a local folk club, he did warn that once he had finished his set he didn't do encores, and yes, it was true, finished and that was it,

Added to my list. Brendan Gleeson is usually VFM.

Bloodlands...4 eps just finished showing on UK TV. James Nesbitt is an Irish detective, who connects a kidnapping to an old case involving the IRA. It is OK, but not as good as I had hoped.

Thanks, that saves me trying it
Just finished Spiral, now working through The Bridge. (Yes, I know I'm several years behind everyone else).

Don't worry about that, just enjoy it in the knowledge there's much to come.

If you ever enjoyed Spooks (MI5 in the US) you must take a look at The Bureau. It's brilliant.

I watched on a mix of 'alternative' streaming sites. It may be on Amazon Prime and possibly the Sundance channel.

But it's French with English subs. I don't know if the other services offer dubbing like Netflix does.

OK thank you. I cannot do foreign language with subs...watching programs/films that have been dubbed is bad enough.

I can't really take dubbing...it never really fits. Even worse if you know the real voices

I think I just started young with BBC2 World Cinema back in the 70s

I watch stuff now and I get so used to subs that when it's finished I sometimes struggle to remember if there were subs or not.

We are at the point that we only watch stuff that have sub titles. The amount of back ground noise/ music and people mumbling and M getting more hard of hearing saying " what are they saying" all the time means subs for the win!

Also similar to enjoying Friday night whisky and sprite/7up with a few Pringles. The crunch of the pringles in my head drowns out dialogue too.
