    Rather enjoyed the pilot for The Tick. It's still Ben Edlund, it's still a bit out there.

    DaveCinzano WATCH OUT, GEORGE, HE'S GOT A SCREWDRIVER!

    Hopefully not as disappointing at the Jean Claude Van Johnson pilot :(

    Just finished Game Of Silence. Really enjoyed it.

    It gets slated in some reviews as "unfinished" because the second series was cancelled and something dramatic happens at the end of the last episode that won't be resolved (although it could be a fitting end to series 1, depending on how you think about it). However, all of the main storylines do get tied off, the acting is excellent and it definitely gets you hooked.

    It has a lot of similarities to the film Sleepers, with a few more twists.

    Oh, and Bre Blair. :oops:

    I see there is now a PS4 app for it. Or there was before and I just missed it.

    Only used it to watch Vikings and Man in the High Castle so far, but combined with the next day delivery, it's rather good value.

    Goliath and Sneaky Pete are two of the best things on any platform in the last year, let alone Amazon.

    Ep1 of Hap and Leonard's Mucho Mojo is an encouraging start to season 2.

    As is ep1 of season 2 of Into the Badlands. And pilot ep of Oasis (from novel, Book of Strange New Things) and Budding Prospects about slacker weed growers in the 80s is also v entertaining.

    Find I'm on Amazon more than Netflix atm.

    Sneaky Pete was rather good and quite enjoying Goliath. Man in the High Castle was awesome.

    I have noticed that on their original stuff aot of the colours really 'pop'. Part of its in probably streaming in 1080p, but some stuff looks so vivid, I didn't even know my screen could do. :)

    I found Patriot to be very enjoyable. A bit slow, a bit odd, but it's right up my street.

    Was knackered all day at work as I stayed up late to watch six episodes of Bosch back-to-back :facepalm: Fucking awesome stuff. Gonna rewatch the first two as soon as I'm done...

    We've been watching Turn. Historical spy drama set during the American Revolution, with the British of course being the enemy. Starts slow, but is quite good.

    Finished it. There is a strange sort of "Wait, there's one more episode?" thing there. :) Not sure they need to solve mysteries, I'd happily just watch the two of them fart about and get into trouble.

    IMO, Prime is knocking Netflix into a cocked hat atm; new Preacher (series 2), new Turn (series 4), new Into the Badlands (series 2), new Animal Kingdom (series 2), newish Hap & Leonard (series 2). Even Long Strange Trip (story of Grateful Dead) is well worth a watch.

    Obvious question, but if I added my Dad to my Prime subscription will they find a way to disable it. Tbh I don't use it that often and him even less so it's very unlikely we'd need to use it at the same time.

    Just give him your login details.

    Season 3 of Bosch is worth a peak.

    The Bureau, French spy drama is very good - slow burning but gripping

    Fear the Walking Dead season 2 went up recently - I really enjoyed this, and having it pretty much set entirely in Mexico was a nice change of pace and scenery from the normal Walking Dead series.

    I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to season 2.

    Started watching Animal Kingdom. I'm not keen on films turned into TV, but the first couple of eps are promising enough. Ellen Barkin, as expected, puts in a great performance.

    I really like the film, and this follows a similar storyline, but also has nods to Point Break too.

    Shawn Hatosy does a fine job with the character of Pope, a big challenge given the performance Ben Mendelsohn gave in the film.
