LOL...my bad. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I secretly live vicariously through Thor, and see him (myself) smashing the heck out of just about everything around him Laugh

You know....there a lot of great moments in that quinjet scene. Isn't that when Cap is worried about the Stars and Stripes being old fashioned, and Coulson tells him we could use a little old fashioned right now. I love that line. Coulson also has some good fanboy moments in the scene, and Stark asking Cap if his thing is Pilates? Laugh

Band of brothers - what a show! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love how they talk briefly with the real men who were in Easy company before the episode starts. One of my favourite shows. You are right, Damian Lewis was excellent in it as well. I havent seen Life so will have to get round to that.

We dont get as far as im aware Kingdom or Warehouse 13 in the UK but my gf really likes Once Upon a Time.

With netflix is it possible to watch them over the internet? If so maybe you could stream through a laptop with hdmi onto your TV? I am guessing it doesnt though as i imagine you would have done that already, lol.

thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

yeah, I think Joss' commentaries for Firefly and Serenity are of equal value to the shows themselves.

I am on such a tight budget right now I don't think I can justify the price of purchasing it. (and our Blu-ray player was taken out of someone's trash pickup but seems to work, even if it is a cheap model) But I'll keep it in mind.

I wonder if the Netflix disc offers the extras. The movie companies have been taking extras off the discs they sell to Netflix leaving a note on the extras menu page that reads: 'want to see extras? buy the disc.'

Kingdom is a UK show with Stephen Fry [In reply to] Can't Post

http://en.wikipedia.org/.../Kingdom_(TV_series)

Netflix has streaming BUT...

1) it costs double to get both discs and streaming

2) not all shows/movies are available on streaming - in fact, I'd say most aren't. I do have access to Amazon Prime streaming and I think it's about the same as Netflix streaming. They don't have Homeland. You can buy movies and tv episodes that aren't available for free with the basic Amazon Prime package. But that runs 2-3 dollars and episode.

3) my early Roku doesn't support closed captions and I pretty desperately need closed captions. I can get by if I wear headphones but that shuts off the sound to the speakers which means no one else can watch the show with me. My husband and I like to find tv shows we enjoy and watch the episodes together.

Shows how much i know [blush]! [In reply to] Can't Post

I do like Stephen Fry so will have to check it out, thanks for the wiki link.

Ah i didn't know that about Netflix. It sounds very similar to Lovefilm over here. Loads of films to be sent to you but not so many available to be streamed.

I just watched the homeland episode online but if you need captions then i guess they will only be on when it comes out on dvd/blu-ray.

Have you ever heard the Musical! commentary for Dr. Horrble's Sing-Along Blog? [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes I get the commentary songs stuck in my head more easily than the original songs.

It is on the DVD [In reply to] Can't Post

There are two commentaries: one musical and one more serious. I think both are worth a listen, personally.

Movies to watch... [In reply to] Can't Post

Since there wasn't really anything good on TV, I chose to re-watch "Sense and Sensibility", haven't seen that one in a while. Also I watched the 2006 version of "Jane Eyre", which I enjoyed very much (as long as you watch the original sound, the German dubbing is simply embarrassing and horrible!)

I neglected to say... [In reply to] Can't Post

that I think, if you like Damian Lewis, you will like Life. He just has a sort of presence on screen and it was as evident in Life as in Band of Brothers, in some ways more because he was the central character in Life.

His co-star in that was Sarah Shahi who I'm now enjoying in the tv show, Fairly Legal.

Any one else know of and enjoy 'Northern Exposure'? [In reply to] Can't Post

Such a lovely show from the '90s that takes place in the fictitious and beautiful town of Cicely, Alaska.

Weekend TV [In reply to] Can't Post

What did I watch? Hm.... the usual. On Sundays, this means NCIS and The Mentalist.

Loved Northern Exposure. Due South is another favourite show of mine.

I have that trouble with QI... [In reply to] Can't Post

and miss much of what is said. That, coupled with some of the jokes being particularly British I don't get as much of it as I'd like to.
