Indochine is a great movie comparable to Doctor Zhivago with gorgeous scenery and good music. It actually inspired me to go to Vietnam and see Halong Bay.

I have Netflix and Amazon Prime so I can access most of what interests me. I also read a lot of books. 

The most memorable series I've seen in the last year was of a group of ordinary bikers who rode from London to Beijing via the Himalayas. 21,000 kilometres.

We enjoyed Better than US. You can watch a dubbed version or one with subtitles. We did the subtitles which sometimes didn't stay visible long enough for my slow reading. The dubbed version looks OK.

The actors had a lot of fun making it.

My old ears need the help of subtitles, especially if the actors speak US English.

I think you will really enjoy "Better than US". It shows a Moscow similar to the one we saw when we visited three years ago.

Police corruption is part of the plot along with greed. The acting was very good. The punk gang was a little immature but when I figured out what was happening it was OK.

You enjoy it, Nissy, It isn't the sort of thing I watch.

I will be waiting for the next season which has already been approved but after the last episode, I can see where it has anywhere to go.

When Love Child was complete after four seasons, there was nowhere for a fifth season to go. They were tidy with the last episode not leaving enough loose ends for another season plus the actors were aging.

Have you seen "The Night Manager"? We saw it on Netflix and I thought it was pretty good. Hugh Laurie played a corrupt arms dealer in Syria. His wife was played by Elizabeth Debicki who will be Diana in the next episodes of "The Crown"

It's not the sort of thing I choose to watch. 

In the next weeks I'll be watching the new, human powered Cowboy Bebop. Then there's the Wheel of Time which may grab me as much as Game of Thrones, didn't.

I watched one episode of Game of Thrones and it was far too violent for me.

I like comedy the most. For a scifi comedy, the Finnish movie "Star Wreck, In the Pirkining" is great and it is watchable on You Tube. It is a parody on Star Trek. Captain Perk has to travel in time to save the universe. He succeeds but ends up on a frozen beach in Hawaii during the ice age.

Nobody was paid to make the movie. It is made by volunteers.

Finns are my kind of people.
