    Prime now has all ten seasons of Futurama.

    Netflix can bite my shiny metal ass!

    Bit late to the party but absolutely enjoying "Life on Mars" on BBC iplayer, and on Netflix "Deadwind", a Finnish whodunit with tons of atmosphere and snow...and the title sounds like a Porcupine Tree cd as well!

    Having finished it ... I was left wanting more, which is a good thing.

    As for the comparison with PSS, imagine if Amazon made PSS as a series. That's what I'm comparing it with rather then the book.

    But it has many of the same elements and the feel is right.

    In fact, Amazon should just go ahead and make PSS!

    Hope they make a follow up series we really enjoyed it, Orlandos' character reminded me of Drake in Ripper St.

    Dark Crystal - Age of Resistance, could be a goody on Netfix - remember the movie coming out

    This is on prime in the US - and it's a good film.

    At the absolutely opposite end of the nautical spectrum, also on prime in the US, we have "Travels by narrowboat"
    I'm not sure what to make of it - we're only a couple of episodes in, and I can't help but feel that it's reality TV meets midlife crisis, but the scenery is very nice and it's very relaxing.
    Based on what Kevin is eating on the show we're wondering if he'll be the first narrowboat sailor to contract scurvy.

    Prime has lots of vintage SF and horror films on there.

    Just watching Quatermass II.

    in the end, i still don't know what to make of it. some very interesting bits here and there, the lead is very good / likable, but it seems cobbled together by a person with good intentions yet little experience or wisdom. also not keen on all the male nudity (who wants to see that?) -- seemed more to do with making a social point that contribution to the drama.

    Just watched hitman redemption with Ron Perlman and Famke Janssen. Apart from the breaking bad slide guitar a nice movie.

    I watched the two seasons of “The OA” and just watched the first again.
    It makes a lot more sense second time round. Lots of hidden clues revealed.

    Classic (though "... and the Pit" is even better).

    I just started watching Marianne on Netflix - French witch-based horror. Pretty damn creepy but also fast-paced with occasional quirky flashes of humour. Very enjoyable, if you enjoy feeling on edge and a little bit scared.

    i'm surprised someone with your background can tolerate supernatural drama.

    There's some good supernatural films, such as 'Don't Look Now', which is kinda-sorta supernatural. But I mostly feel about supernatural drama what I feel about sci-fi; that if 'anything can happen', it's less enjoyable than if events are governed by 'normal' rules of probability etc. All of my favourite films are realistic, though I'm about to watch 'Stalker' and Solaris' in the original Russian versions, so I'm not completely closed-mind about this.

    Took a second look at Mindhunter on Netflix. Am up to episode nine this time. The real treat is watching the character actors they recruit to play the convicted multi-murderers. Last one was a fellow who comes off as an older-than-he-ever-got James Dean, playing Richard Speck.

    Nothing supernatural about SF.

    Not a great horror fan myself but thought people might like to know.
