    I thought Hola was a bit dodgy

    "Rather than operating like a traditional VPN that simply tunnels traffic through servers operated by the VPN service, Hola works on a peer-to-peer basis. When you use Hola’s service, you browse the web through another Hola user’s Internet connection. If you use the free version of their service, you also let other users browse the web through yours. Now anyone that is even slightly tech savvy can easily see how this could lead to serious problems."

    Sadly - and in fairness it's been a while since I tried - getting UK Netflix from the USA was never easy. I guess there's less demand for a 'fix'.

    I’m watching prison break series 1.
    I’m clearly hooked on it is as I’m still watching it at 2am

    Yes, I did wonder how long they could keep the story going on for. Sometimes we just need to know when it’s time to stop!

    After Life is a work of absolute genius. It is both funny and the antithesis of funny whilst being genuinely funny. Watched it in one.

    Love, Death & Robots is future shorts with a big budget.

    @tek-monkey you were so right. I’ve managed to get to season 3 of prison break and I’m done!
    Time for a change. Can’t decide between Games of Thrones ( haven’t seen) or Santa Clarita Diet which was recommended.

    Same happened with dexter, season 3 wasn't great but 4 was one of the best series I've ever seen. From there on it got rather dull :(

    Started watching Titans. It's dark, quite violent but I'm enjoying it.

    So Sex Education is both entertaining and odd.

    It's basically an American High School™ drama played out with an English cast in England, as if nothing odd at all has happened.

    Yet it has.
