    Well, dunno what you like but I would say so, yes...

    Literally finished it just now, see earlier posts.

    I watched them all over a weekend. It's funny but also very sweet. Wasn't it written by Tina Fey? I really liked it, especially Titus.

    I also liked Kimmy Schmidt; it's interesting as the coverage has both praised the female characters but there's also been some backlash about its treatment of minority characters (particularly Dong, I think).

    Just finished S3 of House of Cards - not without it's good moments, but getting a bit bored now.

    Sod it, I'm giving it a go.

    It doesn't seem bad. Tim Roth and that. Just that the central premise is a gimmick, one which I'm not sure will stand up to a weekly story formula.

    I've lost count of the things I've signed up to in the past with that zip code. Most subscription services in the US myust have an unusually high number of users in that area :D

    I've been wondering about this. I wasn't a massive fan of 30 Rock, it was okay but there was something about it that always felt a bit off to me. Is the comedy the same, or different?

    Anyway, I've just started watching A Different World. I loved it back in the day. Great to have on while you're eating your tea, or have a spare half hour here and there.

    Different. I don't love 30 Rock. I've watched quite a lot but there's something I don't get on with so well. Maybe how American is is. I don't know! I'm going to watch more tho and sober and I'll pay attention.

    do you recommend anything else on Netflix? i like to limit TV or series watching a lot....

    parks and recreation will keep you busy for aaages. but orange is the new black if you're not already familiar with it. archer is dead silly, but i'm not sure if it's to your taste. there's loads of documentaries that you might like - trust what is recommended for you - there will be some stinkers but you don't have to watch them.
    have you checked out trailer park boys?

    watched two seasons of Orange is the New Black and liked it, but got bored eventually. Lesbian sex intoxication...first few episodes were great though. I have pored through the docus too - not keen on Louis Thoreaux, i can find docus on music and stuff on youtube, its more series/ the odd movie I am a bit select though thanks

    i heard House of Cards and Game of Thrones are very good. Will check Trailer Park Boys.

    Me too. I was using a friend of a friends account that then I got locked out of it for some reason about four episodes into BCS. Got netflix just for that reason. :facepalm:

    It is if you switch to US Netflix. I switch between both services.

    Just watching a documentary about what happened to Atari. Currently digging up the desert in New Mexico looking for millions of copies of the ET game.

    That's what I do too. Although, and I could have been dreaming this (more like a nightmare, mind) I have some memory of HBO (or other network or something) thinking about doing some kind of deal with them with the proviso they crack down on enabling people from other countries being able to hop onto the service using proxies etc. I can't remember where I saw that. It better not happen!

    Sony were kicking up a fuss about geo switching but Netflix stated at the time they wouldn't be changing anything at their end.

    Doesn't mean they won't in the future though.

    Just watched Virunga
    "In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. Here, an embattled team of park rangers that includes an ex-child soldier and a Belgian prince, risk their lives to protect this UNESCO World Heritage Site from armed rebels, poachers, and even corporations trying to wrest control of Congo's rich natural resources. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature."

    Very gripping, sad and infuriating - posting it here so hopefully lots of people will watch and want to help - which you can

    Some real motherfucking imperialist, greedy racist twants are in full view here, but also amazing, dedicated and very brave real life heroes.

    "Virunga is a stunning film, part nature documentary, and part gritty exposé of the realities of life on the ground in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country that has been torn apart by conflict for thirty years."

    Third season of Orange Is The New Black is coming in June, so a great time for those of you yet to watch it to catch up on the first two. It's really great.

    Watched the first four episodes of Daredevil the other day. It's really, really good, utterly brutal violence, amazingly realistic fight scenes and characters that might have some decent stories in them. I haven't liked many of the recent marvel serieses (or got bored of them really quickly) but I really want to watch the rest of Daredevil.

    Do not watch with children though, I really wasn't kidding about the violence!
