Watched the North Water there... it's grim and Colin Farrell's accent is well I don't really know what it is but it was enjoyable and each episode is quite long so will fill a bit of time I'd give it a solid 7 out of 10.

It was on in America earlier in the summer so you can get the whole lot.

Flip, I was looking forward to it but couldn't understand a thing or even watch it properly as it was so dark.  Might give it another chance though

Finished the Americans.

On the whole it was a good solid 8, especially after season 2 when the writers must have got their way and toned down the action in favour of deftly exploring the situation from multiple angles; summed up by poignant and wonderfully low key finale.

  Dipped in and out of the Americans when it was on RTE, thought it was good but would like to watch it from start to finish, how’d you get access to every series?

Enjoyable show.

Watching Nine Perfect Strangers atm (as a couple) . Like White Lotus, enjoyable, well getting more enjoyable.

Fringe (solo), stumbled upon it. An episode here and there. Good

Kin (couple) episode 1. Good!

Justwatch.com is handy for tracking down shows, you can set it to Ireland.

I have Prime and it is easy to find stuff on Justwatch than it is on Prime.

It seems the Americans is now on Disney!

I really liked The Chair on Netflix. Nice, easy watch but entertaining too.
