"Rake" with Richard Roxburgh is brilliant dark comedy from Australia. Roxburgh plays Cleaver Greene, "a brilliant but self-destructive criminal defence barrister" as Wikipedia puts it so well. Cleaver's funny, charming, great with ladies, etc. but saddled with drug abuse issues and a rampant gambling habit. I've only watched two of the four seasons, but it's fun to watch Cleave struggle along with his crosses and dubious reputation while the "normal" people around him do cracking jobs at setting their own lives on fire. 

Greg Kinnear tried to do an American version of Rake. It lasted a small fraction of one season and rightfully so. Avoid it. If you can deal with adult situations and the legal defense of very unusual criminal activity, check out the Australian show. Love the accents

FFS: just found out that Aussie TV is about to finish up with season 4, while Netflix will only let you see the first two seasons. If you're like the vast majority of Netflixers who've watched this show, you will be baying for more episodes. 

Also amazing but not available on Netflix streaming: "The Hour" with Romola Garai, Dominic West and Ben Whishaw. It is available on Amazon streaming, though, and for free if you have an Amazon Prime subscription.

Watched Cartel Land and it felt so fake to me. Not that the topic wasn't real, and not that the "reveal" wasn't important. But there were so many cameras in places where the filmmaker acknowledges that his life was very much in danger... it seemed like a three-camera sitcom set up with plenty of angle changes and perfect lighting.

I enjoyed it, I think. But something about it made me think it's not the great piece of Oscar™-worthy filmmaking that I was led to think it is.

What's with the Showtime ads with the scrawny Jewish guy from Ray Donovan with his head photoshopped (really badly) onto some MMA guys body?
 It's the worst thing since the Lee Harvey Oswald photos with the bad angles and fake head and rifle,but hey,that was in 1963.Geez dudes.Fake better.

I got a similar email as well.  Considering how much my family and I watch Netflix, it's worth ten bucks a month.

I know someone who bought a name/password for $5 total. They pay no monthly fee and I suppose that the original owner doesn't know what's up.

I wonder if someday that's gonna come bite them on the butt - can the original owner, seeing things in their playlist that they didn't play, track it backwards. And then, what harm is there? Is an object stolen? Was their account charged extra? Where's the tort, except for the moral aspect? 

 
Basic package Standard Def only allows one viewer at a time, so either the owner never uses it, or they have the more premium plan... 2 screens, HD. Or the 4 screens plan. But I can go to the Netflix settings and sign out of all devices. Or change the password. So I think it's probably a pretty rare instance where you'd find someone who pays for streaming, never uses it and/or never changes passwords.
 
But of course services are being stolen. Just like when the guy downstairs put in cable and there was a cable splice on the exterior wall, just before it went into the space between his ceiling and my floor. So  I  a friend drilled out and put a splitter there and hey, free cable.
