I see that Netflix has added "Groundhog Day" remastered in 4K. Probably for a limited time only as were the "Ghostbuster" movies.

Peaky Blinders season 5 trailer. I'm hoping it shows up on Netflix soon after the BBC airing as PB rates up there with the very best the medium has to offer.

Also, strangely got sucked into "Blown Away" the other day .. a Reality Series surrounding Artists that fabricate glass ..

Is this a separate listing or do you automatically get 4K if your equipment allows?

You need their 4 user/ 4K subscription. Probably a little daft that they want more for 4K since no one else charges more for it.

Ah yes, I guess I remember seeing their banner suggesting I upgrade my subscription.

Elsewhere on AVS I had mocked the need for a 4K release of "Groundhog Day" but hoped to have a way to compare for myself. Although my set is 4K I can't really imagine needing more resolution than I get from NF now at any realistic viewing distance.

There's a totally unknown series called 'Sunderland: Till I die' that's fantastic - you don't need to be a football (the beautiful game, not NFL ) fan though it certainly helps. One of the better sports series and better than the one they have about ManU.

Also unrelated but the movie 'The Damned United' is damned fantastic.

I saw it a while ago and I think it was a streaming service, Netflix or Prime.

I googled it. Looks like it's available on various streaming services but for a price.

If anyone remembers "Rocko's Modern Life" on Nickelodeon, Netflix has come out with a 45-minute special episode:

Russian sci fi series Better Than Us, a recent addition, is reminiscent of BBC/AMC's Humans. An experimental female ''bot'' escapes the clutches of it's corporate creators and latches onto a dysfunctional family.

5 rpisodes in, and I'm liking it so far. It's dubbed in English, and the only thing I hate is the person doing the voice of the daughter-it is beyond atrocious! Could not the dubbers hear how bad that was?? I'd switch over to the native Russian but reading subtitles means I can't sneak peeks at my tablet while watching...

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!

Thanks to this post I started watching it and I'm really liking it after two episodes.


I'm watching with the original Russian sound track with English subs. The little daughter is a very good actress.

A joke of course but yes I thought it was OK, enough that I binged the first 4 episodes and finished it off last night. However things change in episode 3 and too many reviewers only judged it by the first episode. It's better than most cable series since they didn't need to compromise.

Finished "The I-Land" last night .. interesting concept, good cast, good production values .. I can't say I loved it, and I can't say I hated it .. kind of middle of the road on this one .. seven episodes was probably enough ..
