    I hope they've commissioned another!

    They have. I saw something that it will be available sometime soon but that could be next year.

    Really enjoying 2nd season of Animal Kingdom, strong characters, good development of key individuals from 1st season.

    Finished season one of Animal Kingdom. Been a good show so far. I don't feel much for the characters, but the way they play everyone, including each other, without any moral compass, reminds me of The Shield.

    Just finished Season 2, loved it, great charcter development and you end up caring about them ALL; relieved Season 3 is in the pipeline.

    See the new Vikings is on Amazon. Can't watch till I'm back home with my girlfriend though.

    Started watching Prison Break tonight. Few years old a bit silly, but I'm quite enjoying it.

    UnderAnOpenSky The first series of Prison Break is high concept, ludicrous and fantastically enjoyable. I can't honestly say it's worth the bother past season one.

    This. The first series is a bit underwhelming, but after a much publicised rewriting of the main character's character, from S2 onwards it gets really damned good.

    Disappointed not to pick up some additional series of NYPD Blue during Prime/Cyber (Mon)Day/Week/Month. No Christmas category that I can see - and none of the notes I've been making for my Xmas movies thread has "Amazon Prime" written next to it

    I note that Season 3 of Hap and Leonard starts March 17th.

    It makes me happy. :)

    Oooh, really? Love Hap and Leonard, if it's season 3 it will, presumably, be The Two Bear Mambo.

    You've not seen the kitten channel? Classical music plays while kittens parachute in on a little hot air balloon and terrorise a tiny cardboard town.

    Actually, just found it on youtube, so you don't need Prime at all:

    It also has a great soundtrack/incidental music. And yes, it’s amazing how you come to like characters who were pretty much 100% unlikeable in the first series. Recommended.

    I didn't realise it was being released one episode per week until we binged through the first 5 eps then came to a grinding halt :mad:
