I've mostly given up on iPlayer, but when I do bother, I use NordVPN.

Do a search for coupon codes, I got mine dirt cheap for a 2 year subscription.

Thanks but I’ve tried those and they’re a bit meh. I think I’ll look for a cheap smart DNS.

The Alpinist on Amazon was incredible. Its about a guy from Squamish who climbs solo without ropes.

Not sure if you know but there's a movie. Bordertown: The Mural Murders

It's on Netflix as well as other places.

The lead actor has been in other things which have been very good too.

No I did not know, thank you for telling me about it. Just added it to my watchlist!

We're watching Hawkeye, which we are enjoying, especially Lucky the Pizza Dog
Binged our way through Shetland series 5, and will likely start series 6 soon
Finished Narcos: Mexico a week or so ago, again another great series

Watched the Bordertown movie last night. I shan't spoil it. It was rather good, but a bit too fast paced, which is to be expected given it was a movie. I hope they either make another movie, or a full series (season 3 was billed as the final series, and did wrap up certain things).

We might start Wellington Paranormal (a spin-off from What We Do In The Shadows) as I've watched the first episode and it's great.

Ditto me. I wondered if it was three parts edited down. There's a piece of music they normally use as an episode reaches it's dramatic ending and it was played roughly at each third.
I also felt it could have been three full parts. I was meaning to look it up to test my theory.

I loved the idea of using the victim's blood for a mural. I wonder if Banksy has thought of that.
These Scandi/Nordic writers seem to have the most original ways of doing people in or unusual reasons for doing so.

I was a little confused by the presence of a character in a couple of scenes (maybe that was the rushing part) but it didn't seem to have a bearing on the plot.

I've been using GetFlix Smart DNS for about 18 months now. Does all the required streaming services without issue on all devices in the house and is easy to change your preferences. They also off a free VPN with the service, although I don't use it as I have another I use (PIA).

Extremely reliable.

Hawkeye is good, I agree. Probably not up there with Wandavision but easily better than The Falcon & the Winter Soldier and on a par with Loki.

Season 6 of the The Expanse is now dropping weekly. Sadly its only a 6 episode season & this week is ep 3. This is the last season so the end is coming too quickly!
