I loved the last episode of Man in the High Castle!
I was a huge fan of Frank Spotnitz' X Files, and the similarities between it and this series in the way characters and storylines are developed really made this so compelling.
Wow, and so cool it was the best character (trade minister) who wrapped it up!

Blow away! It slowly, slowly came to me who the man in the high castle was, then...bam! right across the forehead. The whole back and forth in the hunting cabin too... amazing story.

I am not sure why there are so many posts about Man in the High Castle, since it does not appear to be available on Netflix, which is the subject of this thread.

Busted! But oh well, we aren't known for keeping strictly to the topic at hand!
Get you a trial of Prime and see for yourself!

I have Amazon Prime, but in Canada that does not include video streaming.

That is certainly an annoyance.

The exuberance of Amazon and Netflix knows no bounds, so it all must be contained by one convenient bit bucket, I think.

I closed out Jessica Jones last evening. The end was a mild disappointment.

Did appreciate that it was well made and acted. Looking forward to the next season, as it does capture the spirit of Marvel comics, on which I spent too many quarters and youthful hours.

We missed the third season when/if it was on PBS, so we are two episodes into that season of Last Tango in Halifax. We also watched Murray Christmas--it was okay.

I did say it was on Amazon Prime in my post, and there have been over 2 dozen posts about Amazon Prime going all the way back to January 2013 in this thread that I don't feel guilty at all. Maybe I should rename the thread Netflix/Amazon movie suggestions.

PBS also has streaming. The only difference with them is shows are available for about a month shortly after the show has been broadcast.

Still, someone can catch up on a series that has already started as long as they do it within a few weeks.

We enjoyed Indian Summers.

There were several historical series we missed on PBS this year: Wolf Hall, Poldark. How long before shows like this become available on Netflix? Two years?

I watched all three of those series and enjoyed them.

This one is on both streaming and DVD: Muriel's Wedding
Quote:
Misfit Muriel (Toni Collette) has always escaped life by listening to ABBA ditties and dreaming about marriage. When she and her flighty friend Rhoda (Rachel Griffiths) leave small-town Porpoise Spit, Australia, behind them, her fantasy starts to come to life. That comes along in the form of a hunky swimmer (Daniel Lapaine) looking for Aussie citizenship. At long last, her storybook dreams have come true, but is Muriel ready for this reality?
This is a 1994 vintage film but we enjoyed it anyway.

I saw that about 20 years ago and enjoyed it, though I am not a fan of rom-com.

I am watching 'man in the castle' ESP 4, so far so good. It does bring back memory of Arpil 1975 when I lost my country.

This is one we liked in DVD: Blue Murder
Quote:
Detective Chief Inspector Janine Lewis heads up an elite squad of homicide investigators in Manchester, where she balances the perils of her job with the demands of being a single mother raising four children.
Have just watched Season 1 and there are 4 seasons. This is a British TV series that is classified as "Exciting, Gritty". Well it is fun we think, not that sure about gritty.

I also enjoyed Blue Murder and I agree that it is more funny and witty than gritty.
