Netflix UK grabs loads of Monty Python stuff for February
I loved this and was really sad when it ended. I wanted more
Oh God . Bad enough that Friends is on there.
My younger daughter watched some episodes of Friends on MY part of the account. So that it wouldn't affect her recommendations!
netflix seems to come with a 'kids' section set up straight away, I assume its just as standards so you can let small ones watch stuff without having to vet it yourself. Anyway, my bro comes round and we are about to watch something, he spots the kids section and goes
'How come you've set up a special channel for kids?'
giving me the weird eye, like I'm going to lure kids in for netflix and chill.
It's new social problem: Netfletiquette. People judging your Watching list, with all the shite that you watched 5 minutes of and gave up on. Family members infecting your recommendations. Visitors maliciously "liking" programmes when you're out of the room. (Yeah. Done that. Who hasn't? )
I gave my log in to a depressed mate to give her sommat to watch, and my GOD she watches some shite It's all Murder This and Kidnap Murder That Fucking my recommendations right up
If you go into Account (top right) and then Viewing Activity you can delete stuff from there and it should take it out of your 'recommended' algorithm - not sure there's anything you can do about likes though.
Just be thankful you don't live with people who watch shite like "That 70s Show" on your Netflix account
Top right of what?
Good grief, grandpa
Just go here:
Netflix Viewing Activity
If you have multiple viewing profiles, you'll need to go into each one then Viewing Activity.
I'm on my phone at the moment and I'm just getting this:
I watch Netflix on a smart TV. I'll need to try and remember what I signed in with.
First trailer just out
I've been waiting for Mute since he's been talking about it. As usual, avoiding any and all trailers/news about it.
I'm actually away the weekend it drops, but really looking forward to catching it when I get back. The Prince Charles are running a fairly public campaign to Netflix to allow them to screen it; I think currently Netflix has a deal with Curzon to be the only cinemas to screen Netflix stuff.
Black Lightning is better written and acted than Luke Cage; good watching
Started Norsemen last night. Got about 15 mins in. Probably wasn't in the mood for it. Reviews told me to expect "hilarious". That probably didn't help. I may have inwardly smiled a couple of times, but there were no actual physical smiles. And certainly no laughing.
I've nothing against gentle whimsy. Is that what I should actually be expecting?
Wow. This and Altered Carbon. Can't wait!
I'm a big Duncan Jones fan. Haven't seen Warcraft though...can't take the chance of that getting a hold of me again. 3 fucking years.
Must confess, I haven't seen it either. Loved Moon and Source Code, though.
Warcraft was on paper one of the films least likely to push my buttons- fantasy/ video game inspired, heavy reliance on CGI, a fear that it would have a next to non-existent plot in favour of effects and gratuitous action scenes ... So I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a rather enjoyable and accomplished film.
Cos I'd seen it on here, I thought we'd try one episode of The End of the F##cking World last night. Ended up watching the entire thing. Oh my lord - sooo good. Loved absolutely everything about it - EVERYTHING. Not one duff bit about it.
What do you reckon happened to the sad guy in the petrol station in one of the last episodes , when he thought he was about to enter the world of spontaneous rebellion ? He is one of the many characters that have strong cameos
That was the best exchange in it.
"Did you encourage him to buy a keyring?"
"Well, you get cancer, you'll only have yourself to blame."
I too have just watched the whole thing and it is indeed great.
Is it worth watching now that the end has been spoilt?
How's the end been spoilt? It's the best British made TV I think I've seen for at least five years, absolute must-see.
I'll bookmark it anyways...
It's up there with Spaced for me.
It's been good so far. I watch the Flash and this is made by the same popele I think. It's super cheesy and I like it for that reason.
I wouldn't say it's better acted than Luke Cage though....the boss in this is certainly not a patch on Cottonmouth, acting-wise.
He's a bit like a cross between Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Electricity comes out his hands when he punches people and he's a bit whiny.
