A selection of very short docos from NZ FrankFilms. Try one or two.

Here is The Scam. Murchison is a couple hours drive from us. Greymouth is over on the West Coast and is a very quiet simple place. Nothing much there at all .

Watched the CH4 coverage of the US open final last night, they paid an undisclosed sum to Amazon Prime to show it FTA, and the fee will be given to the LTA to help in the training of up and coming players. It was so amazing that I went to Ch4+1 to watch the end again, such a remarkable young woman, in fact both of them, both of immigrant stock, Fernandez from the Phillipines, and Raducanu from Canada, of Romanian/Chinese parentage, both would have upset Patel with the focus that they have caused about iimmigration. Remarkable performances from both teenagers. Raducanu will be in the record books for so many years, the first ever qualifier, male or female, to win a Slam event, never dropped a set,

"What we do in the shadows" season 3 started a week ago.
A fake comedy documentary following the lives of a household of vampires. The casting us perfect.
The ever wonderful Taika Waititi was one of the shows creators, he appeared in the original show. But this is a rare example of an American remake far surpassing a show's original production. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou are perfect as the three main vampires.

The new Silent Witness and Celebrity Masterchef. My wife is watching some painful nonsense called Married at First Sight. My IQ dropped just watching the credits.

I miss Clarissa from the series, it needs another character like her in it.

How far into it are you? I liked the first few episodes myself but I have heard a lot of people, even those who recommended the show to me, that they much preferred season 2 and beyond over the first one.

That just reminded me I'm still only 2/3 of the way through it myself actually.

FTA? LTA? (LTA I guess is lawn tennis association, but I can't guess at FTA ...).

I keep trying but failing to get into it. But I do hear it improves! In the early episodes, that obnoxious local guy is just so silly as to be annoying/not funny.

I've been enjoying it, I'm on season 4 I think, maybe 5.

Roland's character does improve in later episodes for sure.

FTA is Free To Air - open broadcast, no subscription required, so Channel 4 paid Amazon for the right to broadcast.

Amazon then gave the money to the LTA to be used for supporting young players.
