Thank you for that.

Yes, it is a bit fiddly.

Looks like I might be a robot after all.

Completed season one... went off to watch other stuff for a week or so, decided to come back to this just now, it came up with Swedish subtitles.

Went to switch to English subtitles; not an option.

Testiklar!

And that's me being polite.

Is that Netflix? sometimes they are quite slow with different subs. I was watching a Spanish series, and, although the latest series was out, Netflix warned that English Subs wouldn't be available for 3 or 4 months, and yes, got a message to say the English subs were now available.

It was via my ISP, one of their TV 'bundles' that gives 100+ channels and a limited amount of recording time. It's a complete dog's breakfast, painful to set recordings, and it has some behavioural habits that I still cannot get my head around.

My BIL uses the same ISP, and has some additional packages that may offer something, I'll have a word with him.

I don't think that's in this one. He's still there. The female character is more likely to be the one with demons.

But it's even better than I thought. So far it's come in really handy for where my 'go to' sites have been missing an episode or two or in one case a whole season

Yesterday I discovered that key words are clickable and there's a dropdown menu too. By clicking on Norway, Danish, Finland etc I just found NINE more TV shows that sound really promising (in addition to those that don't ) and about half of them have several seasons.

This is quite good

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_(TV_series) dialogue in english and welsh (with subtitles) and a form of scando-noir. It's quite funny to figure out words that have never made it into welsh so they use the english word like 'please'

It's on Acorn TV.

Binged "The Outsider" (HBO via Crave TV) yesterday and today. Really enjoyed it. Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

Continuing through MI-5 / Spooks too.

Up to episode 5 of 10. Very good and right up there with the other scandi/nordic stuff.

Yes it is excellent. Brilliant acting which makes it hard to watch.

Isn't that because (unusually for Netflix) they are releasing eipsodes weekly rather than dropping the whole series in one go?
