    Fleabag Season 1 is on the Irish prime now so that won't help you.

    Oof thanks for the update. You know what I'm not sure if I'm NOT in the UK or my watchlist titles are just gone


    For example, just a cursory look I can see that 'Synecdoche,New York' and 'Eyes Wide Shut' are no longer there (I had it on my watchlist few months ago)..now I want to know if that's just because im not on the UK site anymore or they've just been removed altogether

    Contact them on chat. Happened to me twice and they added the episodes so that I could finish the season. It shows up as shows I purchased on my account.

    'Eyes Wide Shut'

    I can tell you I actually watched this last week for the very reason it was expiring.

    Love and other drugs (Oct 31st) and Spy Game (Nov 10) are two currently on my watchlist being removed soon.

    I watch at my leisure but check watchlist every week and tweak my choices if something is going.

    introducing indy to kids did not go well, so i have put them up for adoption, mind you they like star wars so might keep them after all

    Thanks, will update!
    Curious, is there anywhere we can find out when the titles are expiring?

    You can only have an idea by the UK list nothing concrete but naturally some correlation...
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?rh=n%3A9791716031&brr=1&rd=1

    Majority of expiring titles are given warnings max is 2 weeks you have to visit the website to see them, some titles can expire without warning.

    Attached below is a screenshot of a title about to leave...

    Finished Future Man which was a load of fun and went to get stuck into Season 2 and it's not there. They have seasons 1 and 3 but not 2... wtf?!?!

    The usual from Amazon, badly entered/ catalogued. Search for "future man season 2". It is there, just difficult to find.

    That is the weirdest thing. It wouldn't play on my TV app - it said it wasn't available in this region - but it's working when I check it through a browser. Very odd.

    Edit: working on the phone as well. I'll have to see can I updated the TV app. The series is great though. Avoid watching with small kids as there's quite a few rude scenes in it.

    It's an intensely stupid movie, but that's meant as a compliment. Very much comedy mined from a cast of lovable idiots, at first coming across as jerks but you grow to love them.

    Havent seen it mentioned but Stan against Evil is a fun series. Comedy Horror with John C McGinley playing a variation of Dr Cox.

    It's a strange one but every episode has me laughing out loud at least once. Some great lines in it from a number of characters. All 3 seasons up there. Short episodes. Finished it in a couple weeks.

    All In: The Fight For Democracy - a documentary examining the history of voter suppression in the US.

    I'm not sure exactly when this landed on Prime but it's a very recent production and has footage including people voting with masks on. It flips between giving a pretty in depth but still very accessible history of voting rights and the subsequent suppression of those rights across the US, while also telling the story of Stacey Abrams campaign to become governor of Georgia in 2018. Obviously this was made to be viewed by Americans before the election but it's particularly interesting watching it post election and results. There's mentions of several of the states that ended up flipping blue, or nearly flipping. There's even a specific mention of one of the Arizona counties that has been on the news all week. Everything Trump has done and said since the polls closed are pretty much forecast, and there were several sort of "light bulb moments" where dots were joining up in my brain with things we've been seeing this week.

    I really recommend watching it. I've been aware of voter suppression on a very basic scale for a long time but this really fills in a lot of the blanks and explains the different methods that have been employed over the years and how the Republican Party has always been the driving force behind it.

    Future Man is a show of diminishing returns. Season 1 is great, season 2 is alright and season 3 is completely forgettable. It's a shame because the three main actors were great in their roles.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,083 ✭✭✭The Raging Bile Duct


    Just spotted Hunt for the Wilderpeople is now on Prime. Such a fantastic movie.

    Cloud Atlas is a fantastic film. I think the only reason it hasn't got a higher rating on the likes of IMDB is because it is such a complicated movie that demands your full attention. But it is well worth it. Fantastic script, acting, cinematography and soundtrack. You can even forgive Tom Hanks butchering an Irish accent.
