Yes it is.

I also enjoyed Elite. In Spanish for those who are averse to subtitles.

Finished watching Bodyguard. This is definitely the best TV show I've seen this year. Absolutely gripping stuff. If you haven't seen it, you must see it.

Somehow, I still think there's bad guys out there!
I need something for an upcoming flight, so I'll download it. It's the English one, yeah?
Yep. Here are the reviews: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/bodyguard/s01/
Yeah, that first episode was fantastic!

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Watched the final series of House of Cards this weekend. It was one of my favourite shows... and the very appropriate loss of Francis... well it didn’t make a lot of difference. Only eight episodes, very good for the most part, but the final episode was a little disappointing as a way to end the series. I’d have like some more wrap up. Robin Wright was amazing. Anyway, it has been a great series.

I'm making my way through that as well GE.

Also watching Brooklyn 99. I can't believe that I haven't watched it before. Bloody brilliant.

If you haven't taken GEs advice and watched Bodyguard yet, go and do it now.

Pretty underwhelming season really. Some of the plot lines went nowhere. Others were simply ludicrous.

Normally I don’t like docos much. But just watched ReMastered: Tricky Dick and The Man in Black.

It’s about Nixon inviting Johnny Cash to the White House for a concert.

Really very good.

Been watching Jack Whitehall: Travels with my father on Netflix. A bit cheesy and very obviously staged... but amusing none the less.

Yeah, I'm finding it quite a bit of fun. For some reason, Netflix has Season 2 listed first, before Season 1... so I'm watching Season 1 now.

Just watched The Bodyguard and enjoyed it. Couple of plot holes. Was expecting a bit more amazing from people’s reactions.

Recorded Vanity Fair and now binge watching it... I normally don't love British period dramas... but this is quite a different adaptation... wicked comedy touches and looks amazing. Great television.

Finished the seven episodes in one day... and it was outstanding. Never seen a film or television series of Vanity Fair... and this one, at least, was great.

BBC First on Foxtel... plus I see it is available on other platforms too.

Kayo Sports has just been released. Looks like Foxtel Now but exclusively for the sports channels. Has some nice features and HD streaming. $25/month for 2 device streams.

Might sign up for the trial and see how it goes with the cricket. If you can follow the ball in that then there won't be any issue with rugby league. I only subscribe to Foxtel for the sports channels so will save a bit of money on that.

Only downside it doesn't work with the old Chromecast as the refresh rate is higher

Otherwise it's good

What’s the offering in terms of cricket and NRL like? How’d they land access?

Forgot my most important question. Will Phil Gould be on it?

Yes, finally caught up. Pretty cool series.

I watched an episode of Haunting on the hill or whatever it's called. I heard good reviews but not really a genre I can get into TBH, so probably won't watch again.
