Code 404, spoof police drama on Sky Comedy with Stephen Graham, I enjoyed it but it was daft!

Just finished 'Unorthodox' on Netflix. The story of a girl who runs from an hasidic jewish community in Williamsburg, NY. Only four parts so an easy watch, but I really enjoyed it. Shira Haas, who plays the girl, is absolutely superb!

Been watching Nine Perfect Strangers on Prime this week. Still 2 episodes to drop, but it's been excellent so far. Some laugh out loud moments and some "dusty room" moments too.

Outstanding performances from Bobby Canavale, Michael Shannon and Melissa McCarthy, who mostly plays it straight. Nicole Kidman just looks odd to me, but that might be deliberate.

Not to give anything away, but 9 people go to a health retreat with various different issues to be resolved. As their week goes on, they get to know each other and their problems. But the clinic has its own agenda with these specific people

You can get 3 months of Disney+ using Tesco clubcard vouchers. I think it's £8 of vouchers for 3 months but can't remember exactly and I have deleted the email
As far as I can tell, it's just on Apple+ and @Chippy_Tea mentioned something to the effect that it's not available in the UK.
However, I really am unfamiliar with the inner workings in the UK for TV , so if it turns out it can be watched, great.

I'm sure at some point it will arrive. I absolutely love it. Citizens of the UK have said it is a good representation without too many stereotypes (keeping in mind that the show is a comedy).

I think we can get it but its not something anyone i know has we seem to go for Netflix.

Googled Apple TV+ and it came back with this -

It had a mention earlier in the thread, but Queen of the South on Netflix is brilliant.
Regarding AppleTV+, unless you can get it free with an iPhone purchase, I'd subscribe for a month, watch everything then cancel until they have more content. It's nowhere near as good as Netflix or Prime.

A bit of a second hand referral. My wife watched a series whilst I was at work for a few nights called Vigil on BBC One and said that it is something I would like. Appears to be about a death in a British navy nuclear submarine and the police, security services and navy involved in cover up. Does sound interesting, but will see.

I watched Operation Finale last night about the capture of Adolf Eichmann. I remember the trial as a kid. Gripping film about a monster.

Yep Ted Lasso is pretty good. Characters that grow on you and some funny moments. Silly premise, and not particularly realistic, but it's a comedy. 🙂
I'm up to date with season 2 now, about 3 eps to go I think...
