I have to take rests frequently which means I knit or spin a lot whilst watching TV resting.
The result is that I get through quite a lot of Netflix. I've only got very limited TV reception .

What films or series would you recommend? I've watched plenty but I don't want to influence recommendations by saying what, though I'm not that keen on situation comedy, comedy, things like home and away or neighbours or eastenders etc. I'm more into SciFi, action, war, crime/detective etc.

I'm loving peaky blinders ATM. A great movie I just watched is the story of bonnie and Clyde, called highwaymen, very very good. Another I'm loving is Barry, the story of a hit man.

I like Hitchcock as well. Watched a drama portraying his life, amazing.

Can you get UK TV series @SatNavSaysStraightOn?
We get very little in the way of TV signal strength (which we are trying to get dealt with). Even the channel that shows back to back M*A*S*H Monday to Thursday is well ,let's just say the wind had to be blowing in the right direction. the aerial signal strength is that low that even with a good quality cable and good quality signal booster, we still can't use the pvr, even to watch the TV via, forget recording anything. Ironically if the channel you want to watch had a catch up option, then you can use that, if you can get into the app to do so . Generally I just bale to Netflix.
They do have some BBC programs . Paranoid was exceptionally good and it was quite amusing watching it because the police station was based in our old local village and lots of the series was filmed in and around the local area .
But generally, no we can't . There are ways and means of getting to BBC catchup but they're not legal .

Kath and Kim is one of the funniest things I have ever seen, an aussie show about a mother and daughter, brilliant :laugh:

We get Mash and law & order practically 24/7. Don't care for or watch either. Cable is so expensive, maybe I should look into Netflix. A friend mentioned Roku, but I'm not very techy.
