Not Netflix of Stan but Paramount. Went to cancel it the other day because i only got it for the prequel to Yellowstone, but found this:


The backstory of how The Godfather was made. Absolutely brilliant.

1883, on Paramount+

It's a prequel to Yellowstone.

Brilliant!

Be warned though, you'll cry.

I binged it in three days.


I wrote about this in the Yellowstone thread a while back. I signed up to Paramount to get at it.

I thought it started out fantastic and was captivated for weeks, thought it got a bit silly towards the end though. Always a pleasure to watch Sam Elliot and i though Faith Ford was spectacular. I had my doubts but she slayed them.

Paramount has a few good things but it doesn't keep record of my viewing history which annoys me almost to the point of rebellion. I have to keep track of where i'm up to with stuff, which shits me because i often take breaks in things and forget where i am.

Oh, that's weird.

Mine remembers where I'm up to with a series, or movie (currently watching Leonardo).

And if I've already watched something, it will say "Watch Again", instead of "Play".

Needing some recommendations. Anyone?
I watched Riddick last night on Stan… (Vin Diesel) and actually didn’t mind this movie. I like the hover bikes.
Anyway… I’ve been offered 2 free months from eBay for Binge. I just can’t upload app on my old 12 year old plasma Samsung smart tv.
Any ideas what I should do?
stuffed if I know how Netflix and Stan are on the tv… by some miraculous fluke or whomever had control of remote in past to know how.

I watch Netflix, and honestly, after I've burned through a series, I'd be hard-pressed remember WTH I watched. Yeah, and I just opened myself for a lot of jokes...

Anyway, I'd like to recommend tuning into the Apple Tv series "For All Mankind".
Can't sing its praises high enough.

It starts off as an alt-historical fiction of the space race between the Soviets and Americans and proceeds into the future. It plays with deep-fake historical footage and real historical footage of events and politicians' speeches and conversations..

Great quaility all around: acting, music , editing...

I was a huge fan of the Sopranos series so I was happy when this week I discovered a movie about Tony Soprano when he was young

Movie is called 'The Many Saints of Newark'.

Whilst many of the characters names are familiar from the Sopranos series, if you're thinking it's a Sopranos you'd be mistaken. Still, I enjoyed it.

Loved it.

Thought the guy who played Sylvio was amazing. All over the acting was great.

Not Netflix of Stan but iView and SBS on Demand ...

From the former, "Time". 2 episodes of a 3 parter out and it's spectacular. Stars Sean Bean who is just outstanding. About a guy who is sent to prison ... and all that that entails.

From SBS, "Too Close" ... about a forensic psychiatrist trying to unravel a very interesting woman accused of a horrible crime. Emily Watson proves once again that she's one of the greats of our time.

If you're looking for sheer escapism, The Sandman on Netflix looks promising. Just started watching.

Loving "The Sandman". Quite the quality cast too.

I really enjoyed what i've read of "The Sandman" graphic novels but i'm not familiar enough with them to know how true this interpretation of them is to them but i'm seriously enjoying it.

Up to episode 5 ... and loving it.

Well…. Don’t laugh but… I watched a cute doggy film on Stan called Pudsey.
I knew hubby wouldn’t be interested so I watched it all to myself!
Movie was a bit corny but cheered me up.
The dogs, horses and pig talk to each other…
The pig was having an identity crisis and thinks it’s a chicken :smirk
I laughed.
That dog Pudsey is amazing … at the end with the rolling credits… it shows a bit of behind the scenes with dog trainer.
I love that dog! :love:

And… I remember when he was in Britain’s Got Talent.

I tried watching this, but couldn't get past two episodes.

Badly acted, CGI nonsense.

Not for me I'm afraid.
