Just a follow up. I was correct. Netflix speed increased SIGNIFICANTLY on all my tvs and streamers just recently. As I said it was ALWAYS something with Netflix signal,not the tvs or streaming boxes.

He's absolutely wonderful in 'Ray Donovan'. Although he is a well respected actor, many of his colleagues don't share his politics.

Their on and off personal relationship is common knowledge but my dislike for Voight does not end there. However I agree this thread is not the place for this discussion. Since my opinion and your personal bias differ feel free to PM me if you wish to continue this conversation.

Manhunt: Unabomber

Early on, during it's TV run, a fellow AVS member recommended this to me .. glad they did .. it's a fairly riveting series and worth a watch if you did not catch it on TV ..

On a side note, this hit NF pretty quickly after the TV run ..

Maybe Netflix put money into the project. I watched episode 1 last night. It's available 4K.

You have to be able to separate someone's political beliefs (or any beliefs, for that matter) from their artistic contribution - - no matter what art form.

Jon Voight is absolutely "killing it" (as Liev Schreiber said) in Ray Donovan. "You're a crooked tree, Chip." There isn't a episode that goes by where Mickey doesn't fail to crack me up once during the show.

I just recently subscribed to Netflix and I'm really enjoying it. I've been binging on the western series - Longmire. The HDR and 4K content is spectacular on Netflix, IMHO. Better than any other streaming I've seen and sometimes as good or better than poorly mastered 4K/HDR discs.

Not exactly my cup of tea movie wise, however, the 2017(?) "Beauty & the Beast" is outstandingly sublime as far as PQ goes ..

Jon Voight is not in it ..

It wasn't intended a slur. He claimed that they were friends ie. it's a personal relationship. I do not know Voight so it's my opinion.

Can we just forget this and move on?

I don't think most of us moved in .. your Post initiated this .. perhaps a "Reasons Why Some Dislike Jon Voight" Thread would be a more appropriate Venue ..

Best 4K content on Netflix?

I wasn't sure if this should be its own thread or just part of this one. I just upgraded my PC monitor to 4k and am thinking of picking up one of the new Sony 4k projectors this holiday. I wanted to check out what 4k content Netflix had on offer, and while they had a lot, it wasn't *that* impressive. I checked out Breaking Bad, Daredevil, and 1-2 others, but I couldn't even tell that it was in 4k. (I believe it was since I hit Ctrl-Alt-Shift-S to force the max bitrate.)

Anyone have a favorite video on Netflix that showcases 4K?
