    Started watching "Little America" yesterday. We like it. Gives a good feeling in these trying times, especially since we can relate to stories about moving and transplanting lives to a new country.

    I find it annoying that they removed the ability to add movies and tv shows to your wish list, and the ability to see season boxed sets in the TV app. To see box sets, you need to go to the iOS iTunes app. They also removed the ability to add to wishlist in iOS.

    I’m watching Defending Jacob on AppleTV+. I’m hooked and binged on 5 straight episodes. It’s an excellent courtroom drama with great acting and keeps you at the edge with the cliffhangers.

    There’s an episode when Chris Evans’s character says he’ll do everything for his son, “whatever it takes” - and I can’t help but reference his lines in Avengers.

    ^haha it was mentioned twice on that episode. I was hoping Iron Man would make a hero landing :D

    we like the series. Not as disturbing and enraging as “When they See Us” but has that same mood of helplessness. My wife refuses to see it before sleeping. That’s actually how we discovered “Trying”. ‘Unfortunately’, we found it so funny & endearing we finished the season in 4 days. Try it ;)

    Not sure about Defending Jacob’s ending but they say it’s a big deviation from the book.

    We also finished “Trying”. It’s just eight short episodes at around 30 minutes each. It’s indeed funny. Hoping there!s a second season.

    Beastie Boys Story is also good. Growing up I wasn't a big Beastie Boys fan but there popular hits were LSS material. One of the few rap acts played on NU 107.5.

    We enjoyed "Trying" as well. Hilariously madcap Bri'ish humour....

    Amazing Stories was good, too. Hope they make more.

    Good news for Apple TV+ subscribers. The Tom Hanks film Greyhound will go straight to Apple TV+, No theatrical release. Perhaps another victim of the impact of Covid19 to the film industry. Too bad, it was a potential Academy Awards contender. No theatrical release means it’s disqualified from receiving any Oscar nominations.

    mm...appropriately titled and I thought it would be a mess with rules of social distancing but it worked brilliantly.

    Isn’t that a contradiction in two words? Virgin, and then River? (n):LOL:

    You people suggesting Alexandra made me watch this thing. Bad.
