    I enjoyed S1. Then the German distributor (Sky) fucked up. They offered an easy to opt in and out monthly ticket for 9.99 EUR. Pull up your browser, navigate to their portal, start up the integrated player (HTML5-based, IIRC): voilà!

    Of which I took advantage and chromcasted it onto my TV: a perfect experience.

    Then they a) replaced the integrated player on their website with a separate proprietary player, which doesn't support ChromeCast. And b) as for (Android) apps, they introduced their own app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=de.sky.online), which explicitly prevents chromecasting, although it is my understanding that this is an integral feature of Android, handled by the OS itself and available for any video stream. Someone please correct me there, if I'm wrong.

    It's been quite a while since I tried it, but I seem to remember that upon starting the stream on the app, Android popped up, suggesting to chromecast it. But when agreeing to that, the app interfered with a "No, no, no, you're not allowed to do that."

    Well, if you try so hard to not take my money, I oblige, kthx(fornothing)bye.

    Hell here in the Netherlands you can only get HBO with a Ziggo subscription, which is the largest cable company in the country. No Ziggo? No HBO. And I don't have (nor want) Ziggo. So fuck HBO, I'll get Westworld another way.

    REALLY enjoying S3 so far, especially last weeks episode where poor Caleb got the rug pulled out from under him. I've seen various attempts to show why companies spying on you all the time is bad but this depiction was the most brutal yet believable I've ever seen I think.

    Finally catching up with the outsider, half way through. So far very good, very slow burn.

    Ozark was good.

Netflix should be ashamed of producing it.
    It's perfect trash television for exactly that reason. It has no ideology, no real ethical slant, the whole thing is a masterpiece of niche cultural insight.
    What is absolutely clear is that pretty much everyone in it is fucked in the head. But it is fantastic! Reminds me a bit if the Shit Town pod-cast (which is the best pod I've ever heard).

    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    This might have been posted a year or so back, im to lazy to look (im late as usual to the party).

    But this Swedish tv-short (6 episodes) produced by Netflix is surprisingly good, i would say production values, script and acting are at a high international level (Most things from television Sweden is shit otherwise).
    Realistic depiction of Swedish school, detention and trial (rich area).

    Use Swedish sound and english text if your not fluent in Moonspeak.

    Amazon released "Tales from the loop". It sounded cool; The townspeople who live above "The Loop," a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe, experience things previously consigned to the realm of science fiction.

    Show is based on science fiction art by Simon Stålenhag. The art is great, show did a good job of copypasting a handful of them into the show but then completely forgot to make an actual show around it, its kinda generic. I guess the last episode is okay.

    I guess seeing some of the art in the show is pretty neat, maybe season 2 will have more actual story. Lots of wasted potential atm

    Also this season of westworld is awesome.

    The Loop disappointed me. Not a fan of short story show when done like this.
    Same characters with a tiny thread through the season.

    OTOH, The Hunters.
    This show is a blast, Jews hunting Nazi's in '77.

    Bosch (Amazon Prime) and What We Do In The Shadows (BBC iPlayer) are back with a new season.

    I just discovered ZeroZeroZero (Netflix) and this puts Narcos to shame, real hard.
    Maybe I'm late to the party, but OMG this is good!

    Add HBO Go in some countries in eastern Europe, et voila!
    Seems like everyone claims it as their own original...
