Having just watched it on Prime it looks good but it appears they've decided to give episode 1 a miss and go straight into #2, unless it played earlier elsewhere. Never mind I'll grab the whole series and watch at our leisure.
I saw that - how annoying, to do that. Unless they sneaked it on some night at 3am & didn't bother to tell anyone.

Watched the last two episodes of 26 of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) - the 1969/70 series.

The episodes on the dvds aren't in broadcast order for some reason, was a bit tricky working out which I'd already watched.

A light-hearted series with the lovely saturated colour that they seemed to achieve back then; '60s cars; London with little traffic about and a lot of older buildings depicted - office blocks, warehouses, the docklands etc - which I bet have almost all been replaced now.

Enjoyable, will watch again Smile

Used to love the white 4 door Vauxhall Randall used to drive in the series. My fav at the time was the Ford Granada used in The Sweeney Show starring the late John Thaw.

Saw an item about a new movie about Neville Chamberlain, with Jeremy Irons which might be interesting. Bloody Jeremy Irons - HOW does he get better looking as he ages, dammit?!

The Endless Summer (1966) classic surfing movie; have watched it at least half a dozen times over the years. 

Light-hearted, fun movie, surfing scenery around the world.

It's on YT; I'm going to obtain a DVD copy for myself.

Never a surfer, so never watched Endless Summer, but did ride motorcycles, so On Any Sunday was the most influential movie, along with Easy Rider, for my life. Watching Mert Lawwill slide his XR750 around the dirttrack set the scene for the rest of my life.

Yay, finally. Ozark - series 4 has started streaming on Netflix. Been waiting on this for sooooo long. Very dark, but very good.

Just watched '60's classic School For Scoundrels. starring Ian Carmichael, a dastardly Terry Thomas 8 the delightful Alastair Sim.
Storyline about being one up over rivals. Done with the humor that only the British can do.

One of my favourite older movies is The lavender hill mob, starring Alec Guiness.
Love the idea of a retiring bank clerk managing to pull off a robbery. Smile

I eventually gave up on that, they mucked it about so much - & then there were those eyebrows of the lead female which were all I could see after a while

Probably because I kept thinking of the remark someone unkindly made about Joan Crawford's eyebrows, that 'they were like little furry caterpillars' - which sort of ruined it for me.

There is a rave review in The Guardian of The Responder. Anyone know if it is streaming in Aotearoa?
