    Well, that's disappointing. Thanks for the heads-up.

    All of them are, either through Amazon Prime Video or Netflix.

    This Is Us, a brilliant comedy/drama about an unusual family, presented in an unusual form. Absolutely delightful. Best to see it in sequence, but anywhere you start, it will still work.

    Is anyone else disappointed with the new Homeland season? I sure am. It's well acted, as usual, but the current storyline isn't nearly as compelling as previous seasons, certainly not the first two.

    Watched the first season. Didn't care for it.

    Finished Black Mirror Last Week . One Of The Best TV Series Ever Made . I Highly Recommend It To Everyone.

    Black Mirror is a British science fiction television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker and centred around dark and satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Episodes are standalone works, usually set in an alternative present or the near future.

    I'm trying to like FX's Taboo with little success. Too heavy on atmosphere and too light on a strong narrative.

    Halfway through season 2 of The Man in the High Castle. I'm finding it a bit tedious. The story line is less than compelling and every scene seems to be a set piece without any great effect. Does John Smith REALLY wear his resplendent Nazi uniform even at home eating supper? Cool threads, I admit.

    The menacing Inspector Kido of the Kempeitai, with his reflective windowpane glasses, is played by Joel de la Fuente, who is quite convincing in the role despite the seeming ethnic mismatch.

    I think I watched one of these at a friends recently - where the guy gets paid to be in an experiment and gets technology installed in him to go into a virtual reality and it doesn't end up too good for him.

    Seemed like a pretty good show. Reminiscent of the Twilight Zone.

    Just finished watching The Halycon! A hotel during WW2. Gave an insight into life during that period and the politics that went with it!

    Prisoner. My whole perception of Australia is based on Prisoner, Neighbours and Flying Doctors.
