I think Netflix and others have the TV stations running scared. I've seen a massive increase in good movies on TV in the past few weeks. Whatcha reckon?

Same here, Strum. I had Netflix for a few months and then downloaded Kodi, which shows streamed stuff. Some may be illegal but I'm not sure, but a lot is legally streamed movies and tv.
But Netflix is by far the best. Bye, bye all that shite on regular television. No more mindless reality shows and F'wit panel shows. wuu wuu wuu wuu wuu wuu

Forcing myself to watch Vin B and his Peoples Debate - only because of it being local.

Is it just me or does (mostly) everyone - despite knowing they'd be on de telly - looks so darn shabby? Its like watch something from old-time Albania?

I forced myself to look at a bit too.I missed the very beginning but, Vincent was saying Sean Barrett wouldn't make it and Mary the ex teacher from Harold School wouldn't come!! Boyd Barrett was there and a couple of FFers. They were given most speaking time. It is not a Public Forum if the Public don't talk,Have to admit i turned over after a few minutes.

Micheál, the Irish people in general in everyday life do look like the people from the albania of my childhood. No pride in their appearence, no sense of occasion, no dress code, no effort, ...it just looks worse on telly.At least the Albanians had an excuse. The Irish just couldn't care.

In the Library yesterday I picked up a DVD thinking it was something else (not really paying attention) ;) but boy was it good, brilliant, well well worth a watch.

The Promise. Epic Series, 4 parts on 2 dvd's.


A gripping yarn and an exquisitely revealing story. A naive young girl on a quest to retrace the footsteps of her dying grandfather, a British soldier in Mandate Palestine. As she delves into his diary of 1946-48, the story of the soldier’s misfortunes unfolds, and the girl loses her innocence as she is forced to brutally confront the reality of Israel past and present.
The genius of the drama, written and directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Peter Kosminsky, is to allow the viewer to see the world through the eyes of the teenage ingenue, Erin (played by Claire Fox). The diary of Sergeant Len Matthews (Christian Cooke) brings historic events to life on screen, and through her sequential reading of the diary, as part of her contemporary inquiry into what happened in 1948, both past and present are cunningly interwoven. Flashbacks of the last throes of the British Mandate era provide a narrative counterpoint that draws the viewer into what is not merely a backstory, but an integral element in the present narrative.

We thought we were in the best stadium in the world. My da used to get so excited at the matches and all his brothers and brothers in law used to come back to our house and continue the match discussion. It was only tea in those days. Simple fun for simple folk.

Yiz are right, hard to find anything to watch, I'm a BBC 4 or BBC 3 fan, always something different on there when the children's programmes are finished, and no ads either :lol:
