  • If you don't mind violence, and I mean extreme but inventive violence, Gangs of London on AMC+ is a great show. It's also available for rent on Amazon Prime.

      There's a phone app called JustWatch. It'll tell you on which service a movie or series is streaming for free or for rent.

          English accents come in all shapes and sizes. What makes it worse for me is poor hearing. Have to rely on captions. I was talking to a local waitress from Liverpool yesterday and understood her perfectly, without hearing aids.

            The only time I've had a problem in the USofA was at a truck-stop in Northern Mississippi. The waitress had a twang AND a drawl and I had to watch her lips to figure it out (not that I'm a lip-reader, but it help)s.
            My Panhandle Floridian wife scolded me when I remarked upon it and said she had no trouble whatsoever!
            She, on the other hand, struggled with the Bronx accent, which was clear to me.

                        Includes the outtakes of the host talking 'off the record'. Bezos is no fan of the host, so THAT is the interesting part.

                            The only MGM asset that is viewed as a bona fide jewel for the years to come is the James Bond franchise, which the company co-owns with the Wilson/ Broccoli family through a separate vehicle. That means that for any future Bond projects, Amazon will be reliant on producers Barbara Broccoli and her half-brother Michael Wilson to approve it.

                            “Barbara and Michael are the ones who decide when they want to make movies. For a long time, the hedge fund guys at MGM have tried to turn James Bond into a TV series that could rival Games of Thrones and the two have been vehemently against that,” said a person who knows Broccoli and Wilson.

                            “They are very sensitive about the franchise. So all MGM has is that when Barbara and Michael decide to make a Bond movie, they [MGM] get the right to finance and distribute the movie. But the real decision-making about Bond, the creative stuff, is with Barbara and Michael,” the person added.

                            • In all, Morgan Stanley analysts estimate, Amazon will get its hands on about 4,000 films and 17,000 TV episodes. It will also gain cable TV channels Epix and MGM HD — all outlets with which Amazon can build its booming advertising business, now worth about $20bn a year.

                              • We just finished The Durrells in Corfu. It was a delightful pre WWII story.
