Martin Scorsese's excellent doc on George Harrison is now on NetFlix (at least in Canada). It's a wonderful look at the man's musical and spiritual journey through life. Lot's of great photographs, interviews, and live preformances from The Beatles and George. You really get to feel like you know the man. Check it out, but you may want to watch it in chunks because it's over 3 hours long.

Time: The Kalief Browder Story

Just wow.......this story is so heart wrenching.  I was motivated after watching it to write to the boy's mother and encourage her on her continued fight only to research and find out the woman died a year ago. Simply a tragedy.  If you really believe race and class is not an issue in this country after watching this.......then there is no reaching you.

"Bluejay"

Fantastic little indie film, where the two characters just won me over and made me feel so much for them...and feel so many things at once. Wonderful actors...so natural.

Too bad Rake was on past my bedtime :-)

Dr Blake is worth a watch and of course, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. Can you get Utopia? It's pretty funny.

My internet is barely manageable for RP, much less Netflix. And apparently the National Broadband is a disaster, if it ever gets here.

Oh yeah, the Aussie kids show Little Lunch is freakin hilarious with great child actors. I heard it is on US netflix

 

Rake was amazing, even though the most recent two seasons lost steam because they wandered away from the wacky court cases. 

I will try Dr. Blake. I know people who love Miss Fisher for the fashions and sets  but it struck me as puddle-thin when I tuned in once. 

I don't think we can get Utopia (the British series? there was an American reality show by that name; disappeared in a flash). 

Added Little Lunch to my list—thanks! 

Broadchurch seasons 1 and 2 with David Tennant are on Netflix. Outstanding.

Also fantastic on Netflix: Happy Valley seasons 1 and 2 with Sarah Lancashire.

The Honorable Woman with Maggie Gylenhaal on Netflix. TOP-NOTCH. 

The Bletchley Circle on Netflix. Brilliant. 

The Last Kingdom on Netflix—perhaps not as good as Vikings (Amazon) but still quite good. Both shows suffer from occasional clunky plot-lines and soap-opera-style unexplained shifts in characters' behaviors and motivations. 
"My internet is barely manageable for RP, much less Netflix. And apparently the National Broadband is a disaster, if it ever gets here."

Fast Internet is very expensive here, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling that reduced Internet Service providers to 3-4 major companies. It'll be interesting to see whether that changes when 5G/fixed wireless broadband starts showing up...

Finished three seasons of The Leftovers.

Don't bother. Lindeloff from Lost tries to catch lightening in a bottle again with a secular mystical show that barely makes sense, although it has some interesting moments that make you think it'll pay off.

No spoilers. 2% of the world vanishes suddenly. Is it religious? If not, what is it that ties them together?
A most interesting character is the left-behind minister who's not weird or insane, but spends his time making fliers showing that the departed were not good, so this was not a rapture or a separation of good/wicked. Of course, the remaining people attack him for his postings that someone was an addict, or child molester, but his point is an important one: being left behind wasn't a sign of God's disfavor, so keep hopeful.

My wife and I started noticing how painfully obvious it was that they'd fill up episodes with long stretches of nothing, like irrelevant singing or even a passing orgy. Yawn.
The whole thing wraps up like a badly made creme brûlée with chunky bits and parts unfinished. Not recommended. 

When it finished I told my wife, 'Now I know how the people who didn't get Lost felt."

"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.

If you like the Australian thing, you might check out Doctor Blake Mysteries.  Rather dark, post WW2 period piece. Flawed characters that I still find myself liking in spite of those flaws.

A Very Secret Service, streamable on Netflix.  Wiki overview here.  Gut-bustingly funny in bits, with a slightly darker turn as the season progresses.  Only one season, but I read a second season is due out in November.

Just finished watching S1 Ep.10 of The Blacklist. I started watching mainly because of James Spader, an actor I like. Nothing special, kinda like 24. But in Ep9 I started liking it more. It helped that Alan Alda was a special guest in Ep10.

Oh, and that swamp mix is hitting good. {#Cheers}

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.

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.
