I have it on 'my to watch' list on Netflix. I assume it is in Icelandic (a language I am completely conversant in ) or is it sub-titled or dubbed?

Subtitled. With the odd bit of English spoken.

It's weird...when something is good I often find myself wondering after whether it was really subtitled because it was easy to follow. When they switch to English and back again, it seems so seamless. I'm not aware that I have stopped reading.

I'm going to watch the first installment of the Ken Burns Vietnam series in a half hour. Entitled Deja Vu, it chronicles the years 1858 - 1961.

Just watched part 2 on iPlayer.

I might wait for it to complete and then binge watch.

What with these backwards segments it's a little more difficult to keep track waiting a week before going backwards again.
