netflix series

Its been a while [my blog] so set your eyes to square and lets go discover some things you have probably never heard of.

The gift

Turkish drama series [subtitiles ahoy rather than an awful dub] which i sat through all in one time and even got the dreaded are you still alive prompt from our friendly streamer.

Not sure you will see a return for this but does it well and stylishly.

5/5 bananas


Is woke [my blog] as fuck but for dutch tv has an element of horror amid the murky sets.  Expect subtitles for the best experience as i just cannot do justice with it having your local vioce actors losing the region context. season 1 so far.

4/5 bananas


Brazilian based 1984 drama which replaces china with brazil when a crime free city sees a murder and cannot deal with it.  Series 1 is sharp and does not bore you to death and is not over.

4/5 bananas best with subtitiles

Old mentions the good place [my blog] remains entertaining even if it did retread its path several times.   Less is more.

Locke and Key

This is interesting but is not sure if it wants to be a teen drama or more adult. series 1 sets up an location and is entertaining.

3/5 bananas.


who the fuck is jenifer

missing in action

The witcher is on netflix (my blog) and was tolerable to watch although a clone of that tv writers** stuff on the other channel which he still has not completed writing did cross my mind and the conclusion on tv was deemed wrong by all those who saw it*.

I have no desire to video game / read the book of the source and once you get over the individual perspectives i guess it makes some kind of err reason.

The wondering song person is cast off early and perhaps he knows what jenifer is.

Anyhow i am sure this will have a large mainstream eyeball count unlike most of my netflix viewing.

Mindless fun 2/5 bananas.

*not me **when you have more tv credits than books your not an book author.

diversity quotas in australian tv & film production.

Australia is not known for good tv** and films but recently a lot of there stuff on netflix has ethnic minorities in the unlisted seems to have a whole cast of indians being best hindu indian* in australia.

Indian grandmother in the unlisted seems to be in most of the scenes and despite its tech billionaire bad/create zombie message gives an odd perception.

Another example is an alien invasion film that also has a low budget and it also got me thinking is this really Australian.

Indians doing tv stuff (my blog) is something i am cool with but when there culture essentially over rides everything else i do wonder is australian stuff that toxic to film and tv luvies.

If i ever get through the series and the bad film noted i will link to this post.

*racist ? ** eg not soaps

film things, space yoga and film makers being snobby toward netflix and ‘streaming’

Usual disclaimers apply and very good luck finding these in a cinema.

A cure for wellness

imdb: tt4731136 is a modern take on dracula.   Quite slow but it ramps up and I think the good guys win.  It remembers the cardinal rule of horror of not to explain all.

4/5 bananas


is a french award winner imdb:  tt8359848 and implied drugs / sex and craziness.

Do not expect coherence here but has a certain charm as it has no super heroes in it

3/5 bananas.



imdb: tt0483607 dates from 2008 and is max max (my blog) done in scorland who features a Gordon Brown type (my blog)  who turns scotland into a land of zombies through iron bru*.

Quite why it took nine (9) years for me to even hear of this film yet alone see it is something to marvel at.

Its better made than than the remake i linked to  although most of the cast i have never heard of.

Its genuinely bonkers does not make a lot of sense and fun

1/5 bananas this is the optime of a film makers hate of netflix or

how dare you stream my awfull film which never got any release by my fellow art profesionals.


imdb: tt4443922 has a cast of about four people, and features space yoga.

Either they went crazy, got bored, or decided to make yoga an important part of the film.

Stylish but incomprehensible

2/5 bananas

*a sweet soft drink comprising mostly of sugar which the natives of scotland are upset at the maker of for reducing the sugar content because of fat people – never tried it.

more Taiwanese netflix

til death do us part is netflix i like (some other .tw examples),

A series of short stories is well worth a find from the cheating wife to the finding of happiness not following communist party rules like no fantasy* mean a more freethinking and worthy see.

Some of these might be deemed gruesome – i never thought cat litter could be even though the nuclear wast industry uses it non traditionally.

Since a lot a netflix is chav  this certainly is not.

5/5 bananas.

*or live live chairman mao sentiments.

Leila – indian netflix

netflix needs subscribers and where better than from India, after all microsoft technical support (my blog) is good from there**.

Since i like stuff with subtitles* i decided to give this a go.   Dystopian with a warning text it correctly points out that indians can be bad and things like the caste system have been maintained by indian society since independence.

This is a book by Prayaag Akbar.  and being it ends after six episodes i decided  to go read the book.

Worth a see, book review to come.

*provided i can read them ** i joke

netflix subtitle and email change

I had to change the email address in netflix and i was expecting a somg and dance routine* – however one change with the password did it and the television config went automatically. cool

It was simple and suprisingly not a chore i thought i was letting myself into as many of these things are not as straightforward (my blog)

Since i often gripe  (my blog) that i cannot read white text on a white background, i even found a black colour instead of the white colour used by default by netflix..

*sacrifice a first born child,  etc

venereal disease tv, hollywood and amazon

Syfiy (my blog) was a channel more dedicated to wrestling than science fiction which i have never bought. There decision making processes are batshit insane and seem to have many shows that have left it as nobody watches the channel.

I saw the expanse (my blog) on netflix and another and when they do back a winner they soon cancel it for reasons like wrestling (my blog) is better.   After all men hugging each other is good.

So the expanse came off ‘televison’ and i was surprised to discover the expanse series 3 is not on any streaming platform until november.

I decided not to try amazon prime for that reason. Instead i found the books and wil ask the library to get them.

So hollywood hates cable tv, (my blog)  and both hate amazon \ netflix it’s not a problem here except for there bank balances.

The good news is i have books to read, and blog posts to make, the downside for people who love men hugging and hollywood is there problem.

Netflix support is awful

tube recycle those 1’s and 0’s

ipv6 (my blog) is the thing that will ‘save the world’ so long as netflix (my blog) does not use it.  Imagine your televisions gets an update to use ipv6 (my blog) but netflix then decides the ipv6 in use is bad.   Yep no netliix streaming for you.

I doubt you can downgrade to something that works on such a device (not a pc).

The level 1 person i had was an idiot (almost gleeful with the reply) so much so i cancelled the subscription on the spot.   If these geniuses continue to think  the way they do then ipv6 is not a replacement for the consumer.

I might be experimenting with ipv6 and not be an genius on it but suppose i had no idea except that the tv can do netflix and then it could not.  A phone company would say its not there fault, but a problem for the streamer to fix, the subscriber is stuck in the  middle.

While my ipv6 range might have been deemed bad for netflix everybody else seemed to accept the traffic.

Something else the ipv6 evangelists fail to mention.
