I'm so glad that there isn't a timer within Netflix that shows you how many hours of your life you have spent watching Netflix. I am flying through these 'Dark' episodes.

Schitt’s Creek...my sister has just been saying how much she loves it. I tried but couldn’t get into it. Maybe I will try again...someday,
I tried again, a few times and now I get it

I just finished watching season one (10 episodes) and it is one of the best things I have ever seen. The good thing about watching shows with subtitles is that you cannot look away otherwise you miss out on what's going on. Even concentrating 100% I was still a bit confused at times, but now I finished the season, it all makes sense.

Can't wait to start season 2 tonight.

The main character Adele is Bono's Daughter, never seen her on TV before, she did a great job.
Finished watching it...weird! I thought the ending was disappointing...I don’t care for stuff like that.

Slightly off-topic...

So I see Deutschland 89 is available on 4od

Strange thing this that my VPN blocker works for programmes such as Green Wing, Peep Show but try to watch any of Walter Presents shows/international tv series such as above and it tells me I’m unable to watch it as I’m not in the right country...anyone else come across this?

We just started watching "Your Honor" and it is absolutely magnificent stuff. Great story, great production and great acting, especially Bryan Cranston.

Last night my sister said they were watching it on Sky. Looks like I can see it on Crave.

Speaking of Blake's 7, I watched a Swedish show last week, Jägarna.
Josette Simon, who was Dayna, had a role.

I watched part of it, what I saw was good. Only stopped because for whatever reason the show was anxiety inducing for me...not sure why very rare I am affected by TV or movies, but maybe its just so well done its tricking my brain...lol


I have been watching Firefly Lane on netflix, seems decent enough although I was slow to catch on that the present day in the show is like 2003, and I was like how are they like only 40 something if they were teenagers in the 70's then I financially figured out the present day isn't present in 2021 but 2003...ha ha

Guess in a way they are not doing the 2003 present day well enough.

Not a new show as I believe it ran on Canadian cable TV and elsewhere, but Rust Valley Restorers is interesting enough, reality show but keeps me entertained.

This looks like a pretty promising movie.

Looks like it was shot in Kamloops. How come I can't find any IMDB for it?

Finished watching Your Honor last night on Crave. A little slow in places but well worth watching.

Good pointer, thank you.
How are you able to view this in Europe; I'm trying to help a friend locate the show over there.

Episode 4 was my all-time favorite! The dinner scene with Max's parents was just hilarious! Wasn't as keen on last night's episode 8, which was more about plot development than humor, but still good. So far I'm still loving it.

I'll PM you on the answer to that question.

In the meantime, it may be worth looking at this:

I had watched the first season of The Expanse (I'd read a couple of the books, and listened to a few more as audiobooks), and due to acquiring Amazon Prime the other day, I have started my way through season two. Thoroughly enjoying it, as I did the first season.

We are all caught up on For All Mankind, well, until the next one comes out, possibly today.

Wrapped up season two of Cobra Kai the other night, will get to season three shortly, though I'm told it's not as good as prior seasons.
