Peacock, Apple+, Paramount and any other streaming channel without its own thread

I’m currently enjoying Ted Lasso and Slow Horses on Apple, Mr Mercedes on Peacock, and Colbert’s show on Paramount, though I hope there will be another series of The Good Fight on the latter.

And then there’s BritBox, though we’ve worked through all the episodes of Upstart Crow and Mock the Week. And on Acorn there’s alway t’Yorkshire Vet.

Share your binges here!

Severance in Apple is great.

Station Eleven on Apple/Starz was odd but ultimately worthwhile - one of the few of these things I've actually watched to the end.

We started Severance but it stretched 10smith’s willing suspension of disbelief too fr so we gave up pretty quickly.

I enjoyed the book of Station Eleven, might give the TV show a watch.

Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe premieres on Paramount next week I believe.

The final season of The Good Fight is about to start up - Robert King has been tweeting about it.

We have Paramount+, HBO+, and PBS Passport, gives us about as much TV as we can watch (I fall asleep early).

It's a Samsung "Smart" (HAH!) Television, and they have thousands of channels, some movie channels, but also somehow loads of free movies.

I've found (limited experience admittedly) that a lot of these series are actually pretty shit, but I will never run out of movies to watch.

On PBS Passport, the very best is Seaside Hotel, a Danish series with eight seasons. Totally addictive.

Best thing about all of it: NO COMMERCIALS.

HBO+ is doing a remake of The Time Traveller's Wife, with Rose Leslie and some lovely man. They've just finished the first "season", which wasn't many episodes. It's better than the movie (which we watched the other night, also on HBO+)

We don’t have HBO, but I do fancy both the Time Traveler’s Wife and also The Gilded Age on that channel.

We do have PBS Passport and we usually watch the News Hour live.

I haven’t seen Seaside Hitel but we tend to like Scandi. Stuff (currently watching the new series of Borgen) so I’ll look it up.

I was quite enjoying The Good Fight then a season started with loads of trippy cartoon segments and that was it for me

Cush Jumbo is a really good lead

Does Paramount+ have commercials?

I watch more films on Mubi lately. It has a smaller collection but if you can't get Kanopy through your library or if you've seen most of what's on Criterion collection, it's an alternative for finding festival-circuit films and art house fare.

CaptainBlack - 23 Jun 2022 11:41:03 (#13 of 16)

I might have watched ‘Pleasure’ on MUBI.

raymie - 23 Jun 2022 15:32:20 (#14 of 16)

Watched the new star trek 1st episode last night m see how it goes. on paramount, no ads

Garden - 23 Jun 2022 17:02:42 (#15 of 16)


No commercials on Paramount#. It makes watching Colbert really nice.

I will sign up to Paramount+ for Beavis & Butt-head and watch later today (then cancel). Got too many subscriptions and not enough time/income to justify.
