I just started watching The Viet Nam War, a Ken Burns doc. I am finding it fascinating, especially the archival footage, the observations from those who were there from all sides, and the history of how it became such a war that Americans were pulled into it. I was in my teens when this started hitting the nightly news along with all the young protesters who were against being drafted into it. I lived in Canada, so it didnt affect me directly, but it was a big story day in and day out.

Has anyone watched Hannah Gadsby’s "Nanette" on Netflix? It's a comedy act, but I would call it more of a motivational speech and a passionate outcry all in one.

I found it amazing. Hannah is just brilliant. She knows how to draw the audience in and tell stories that mean so much more than you can imagine. With the amount of herself she gives to the show, I can't see how she does that act more than once.

I'm thinking about cancelling it. If it goes up in price anymore, then I'm out. I'm not finding anything that grabs me. When does Orange is the New Black start?

Lakecat I'm with you, I may drop it to. I have a hard time finding anything I want to watch. I think I'm losing interest in TV in general.

Thanks Maremko.
It seems everything is so serious. Just trying to find a movie on Netflix it's all very heavy and often depressing content.

It's the political climate, no one is feeling positive so they aren't making positive tv shows.

If anyone still has Netflix DVD service, they have Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, season 1. But that will not brighten your mood either.

I just read on People Magazine about another Netflix show. "A Very English Scandal", starring Hugh Grant, 3 episodes. Also starting today 6/29 is The Gorgeous Ladies of Glow, season 2.

Looking forward to Glow! I went to look up the Hugh Grant series and found it's on Amazon Prime for those of you who have that.

“A Very English Scandal” is on Amazon Prime, not Netflix.....
That explains why I could not find it today....

yesterday since it was a boiling, broiling 92 degrees I decided it was a tv day. I watch A Very Eng Scandal and totally enjoyed it. Watching Hugh Grant was absolutely mesmerizing his facial expressions were so subtle, it was all in his eyes. I hope he gets an award for this role. the character of Norman was sadly funny, his last outburst in court was soo soo sad.

Binge-watched Grace and Frankie yesterday. I'm so grateful to a friend of mine who downloaded the previous seasons for me. Just finished watching the first Nine episodes. It is very good but then I know that because all of you love it and that's where I first heard about it was here. Also I'm not worried about Lucifer anymore because even though it's been rescued by Netflix which I don't have I just have to wait for the end of the season and have him download that for me as well. It's just going to suck to have to wait.

For those of you who enjoyed A Very English Scandal, does it get any easier to understand Hugh Grant's accent?

I never noticed Hugh Grant's accent....but then I watch almost every British show with the closed captioning on. There's always a character or two with a thicker, regional accent that's a lot harder to understand than everyone else's. And if the CC is on, I'm hearing it and reading it at the same time so the accents don't matter.

Sometimes I'll hear a line and replay it over and over and still not be able to understand the words at all....but when I turn on the CC and watch it, suddenly it clearly sounds exactly like what the CC shows even though it wasn't clear at all when I was just hearing it. It's almost like the CC actually improves my hearing. I know there's a scientific explanation for it...something about how our brains "fill in" gaps of missing data that our senses don't catch....and seeing the word in CC fills in the gaps in such a way that I can hear the difference once the CC is on.

I'm now in the habit of automatically turning on the CC if it's a British show....or if I'm watching "Preacher" and Cassidy, the hard drinking Irish vampire, is talking.

If I'm not mistaken, A Very English Scandal is another version of A Very British Sex Scandal (TV movie 2007). I've seen the original and it was excellent, so Grant's version is now in my watch list.

For me the more the "cockney" the accent the harder it is to understand. A couple of years ago I had to call Netflix to figure out how to turn on the cc . Love British shows but the accents can be a challenge at times.

In my opinion, this is the best, most thought provoking stand up act I've ever seen.

I need a new show to binge on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon. I finished season 2 of The Handmaids Tale in the very early hours this morning. Season 3 NOW!
I am thinking about Harlots as I am a W
Lesley Manville fan.
My husband and I watched
Mindhunters last week and am looking forward to season 2.

I may have already recommended but I do like Anne with an E, based loosely on Anne of Green Gabels. It may be too juvenile for some,but I think it's a nice respite from all the dark and complex TV shows and movies of late.

Lakecat, I love Ann with an E too! I can't wait for season 2! The U.K. Netflix just released it! Don't know when we in Canada will have it.

We just watched that Australian comedian Jim Jefferie's new comedy special "Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now".

OMG is he filthy!....LOL
He also did a lot of anti-Trump stuff. We liked it, but you can't be easily offended to watch it.

I am watching The Good Girls, a very funny show about 3 women who are having money troubles so they rob a supermarket which leads to more problems. Christina Hendricks is in it, and I found it quite watchable!

Naja, if you liked Jim Jefferie, then you would like Hannah Gadsby’s "Nanette".
