However, I have just as many issues with the Amazon interface. Mixing films that are free and aren't is just pain in the ass. Having to scroll across as opposed to down where you can see more of the film's/shows available is just tedious. The search function is a mess. Type in "scorcese films on prime" brings up the first couple as free then it mix with the non-free films. And so and so on. Netflix has its issues but with the amount of big name directors and actors they've got doing films and series for them it's going to be around for a while longer.
oh right right
i handle most amazon things via ipad so i dont have to go through those one-button punches of the amazon fire or whatever.
for the search, there are filters...

but yeah i suppose amazon has the incentive to always sell you extra shit? i subscribe to channels sometimes from them (hbo, showtime, starz, etc), sometimes i rent something i can’t find anywhere else.

but it’s always voluntary. they’ve never fucked me on the billing. one time i couldnt watch a rental stream and they promptly refunded me. didnt even have to call and give a code and shit. punch 3 buttons, done.

also, i love the x-ray thing. it’s tv, you talk back, look up the cast or the soundtrack, pipes to imdb... smart fuckers. i see your problem with certain versions of it, i just don’t have it. and yeha, i can still offline to a phone and plug it into a hotel tv with that apple adapter...

Yes, it's indeed a Grant Morrison based show (not that I actually know who he is). And you can easily tell the drug influences. Have you ever wondered how a unicorn would react after it falls into a bag of coke? Check episode 2
You can also tell that it's produced by SyFy channel, not that we have that channel over here, but everything I've seen from it (especially those low-rated tv-movies that do get airedhere once in a while) looks a bit cheapish, perhaps they don't have the budgets as other studios.
But the combination of the two main characters is strong enough that makes me want continue watching it.

It being a SyFy channel thing is probably the catch-all reason for why I didn’t watch more than 1 episode.

Low-rent is right.

Low-rent is right.
and yet, like the cw keeping buffy alive, and having other hits that elude me personally, the syfy channel had some hits.

they had the glorious battlestar galactica (that was big), aired the original mst3k (not so big but culturally relevant), brought the reboot of dr who to america (which i actually missed in that first run), and have had other accomplishments to keep them alive.

a few years ago they had this cheaply but really cheaply made little show call “defiance” that i liked for a while.

then again of course there have been many duds in between, like one show about people with superpowers featuring this woman who could smell the poo 3 floors down in her office building... man i tried to like it but that show sucked. “alphas” or something? oy...

eta: there also must be something likeable among this wrecks:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...original_films
megashark vs mechashark? i’m interested

oh and of course, i forgot cuz ive never been a fan, but didn’t they carry stargate sg-1 for half a century or something? or it carried them...

the Monty Python box finally arrived today! Actually they sent me a second box, the first one got lost somewhere, they gave me a tracking number of it and that was sent to Australia
It's all 4 series remastered on 7 Bluray discs, and each series comes with an extensive book too! I'll be having fun tonight

I really liked Bottom back in the day, but never knew that thay made a stage show out of it, and toured with it throughout the UK, let alone 5 of them! I only stumbled upon it yesterday on YT where it was in my list of recommendations. Here is an 8 hour vid with all 5 stage shows: https://youtu.be/0kY0E514-mg
But perhaps the most fun parts are where they fuck shit up and do their ultimate best to keep the other one offtrack, such as here: https://youtu.be/G_X_7TrcHGM

I dunno man, but in the Buffy days I’m prrrty sure the CW was still the WB or whatever.

Anyway, SyFy did make Farscape available to U.S. audiences, and that was a weird and fun little deal for a while if you didn’t think too hard about it.

Also that show Eureka, based on a Stephen King short-story but having literally nothing to do with said story other than a character named “The Colorado Kid” was... eh, not great but OK.

I shrug.

Finally watching the FARGO TV show, and it’s quite good. I guess I didn’t believe a Coen Bros. tribute show would be able to be good in the same way that the Coens themselves are, but ... it kind of is.

Can’t wait to start seeing Barton Fink references. Woo.

the wb and upn were folded into the cw. my point wasn’t to track tv corporate mergers but simply to say that sometimes a shit network can make or carry a good show. they do.

funny thing, i’ve never seen farscape but it keeps popping in my recommendations. maybe some day.

and you didn’t like galactica? the ending was annoying for me, but some time it was a thrilling mystery and a massive success. after than ended i was also moderately enjoying caprica (the prequel), but they shitcanned it, not sure why- probably too pricey for the ratings, but it wasn’t bad.

fargo is fucking great. have not seen 4th season yet do not breathe a word of it

just saw a hobo ad that paolo sorrentino’s pope show is “returning”

HELL THE FUCK YEAH. really look forward to that one. likely will get a month of it in the summer.

bingeing is so much nicer than piecemeal installments. currently stuck on that with VIKINGS. plus the commercials i mentioned above, fml.

-

meanwhile, been watching JACK RYAN on amazon. the one with jim from the office. it’s less fascist and xenophobic than the usual clancy fare, probably because the guy died long ago and writers had to refresh for current times. it’s actually pretty enjoyable improbable action.. a bit like HOMELAND but without the mental illness angle or claire danes. so, not great, but okay.

Sorrentino’s show? The New Pope? “Sequel” or whatever to the excellent The Young Pope?

Yeah, finally. I’m excited too.

I don’t think so. Not ringing any bells.
But Young Pope was electric. Like Twin Peaks and the good House Of Cards seasons had a baby.

Love that theme, too — a song by Recondite.

Also watching The Outsider on HBO.

Based on some Stephen King book I haven’t read. Has Jason Bateman and Ben Mendelsohn. Good ass shit so far. Not what you’d expect from a King adaptation (e.g.: 80% chance of crap showers). Also, seems to be different thematically from a lot of King’s stuff, with more of a True Detective vibe.

I’m sure it will get bodysnatchery and end up being full of some weird body horror stuff and that an already mean and abusive man or woman (probably man, think I know who, actually) will become supernaturally mean and abusive but for now it feels kinda fresh.
