    I'm having this problem too, tried a few different devices but no joy. It's really annoying as I really want to watch it.

    Anyone find a work around?

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,383 ✭✭✭✭ peteeeed

    Lots of price hike stories flying around

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,503 Mod ✭✭✭✭ TICKLE_ME_ELMO

    The Irish price has always been way lower than others because you didn't get any of the benefits of Prime offered in the UK, or US. Not sure if that will change with the opening of an Irish warehouse though.

  • Registered Users Posts: 774 ✭✭✭ DrZeuss

    Yeah seeing that too, if there is a price increase I'll probably drop it. There isn't an awful lot on the platform in terms of new releases, might be better to just get a month when something good pops up.

    I've dropped it already - it was handy for free deliveries but I'm trying to be a bit more prudent this year and I've gone months where I mightn't have watched anything on Prime. My sub runs out on Tuesday. Going to watch Reacher over the weekend and I'll sub for the month when the new season of Boys is up.

  • Registered Users Posts: 452 ✭✭ Xaniaj

    I cancelled it last month once The Expanse ended. I wouldn't mind watching Reacher but I'll wait until I have a few shows lined up and binge them for the month. Definitely the future of steaming will be cycling through the services

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,729 ✭✭✭✭ Tauriel

    Looks like all 8 episodes of Reacher are available which is surprising as I thought they were being released one at a time.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,041 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985

    Marvelous Mrs Maisel back 18th of Feb too.

    Watched Wrath of Man last night, pleasantly surprised me too defo worth an auld gawk.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,248 ✭✭✭✭ Mantis Toboggan

    Ms Maisel is only show that keeps me on prime.

    Watched episode 1 last night, main character is a bit wooden but huge improvement on Cruise, fight scenes quite good

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,729 ✭✭✭✭ Tauriel

    Have watched 5 myself and enjoying them so far. Jack Reacher is definitely more suited to this mini-series format compared to the movies.

    I would be a fan of Cruise but he was no Reacher. Definitely better casting in the series and much more realistic fight scenes.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,011 ✭✭✭ The Raging Bile Duct

    Don't think your man is wooden at all as Reacher. Really enjoying him and his interplay with the other characters. On episode 6 and we'll be finished it this evening. Totally recommend this.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,191 ✭✭✭ RandomViewer

    Watched the second one last night, he has loosened up a bit,

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,355 ✭✭✭ Widdensushi

    The last episode was dragged out, it had enough content for thirty minutes.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,149 ✭✭✭ McGrath5

    Finished Clarkson's Farm a few weeks back - while there are plenty of funny moments it did drag a little bit in parts. The first and last episodes were the highlight for me.

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,070 ✭✭✭✭ fryup

    haven't seen Reacher yet, would it be on to 24 with Kiefer Sutherland?

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,191 ✭✭✭ RandomViewer

    No, monosyllabic hulk walks around ,asks questions, busts heads

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,070 ✭✭✭✭ fryup

    so it is like 24😉

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,729 ✭✭✭✭ Tauriel

    Got to agree, the ending contained so much fluff but otherwise an excellent season 1 I thought.

    2 decent watches for me recently on prime. 'I want you back' solid indie rom com with Charlie Day. Sharp script and dialogue with some good laughs. Wouldn't usually be a genre for me but quite enjoyed it. 'Copshop' with Grillo and Butler , enjoyable brainless action movie with assault on prescient 13 vibes. Both 7/10 for me.

    Having watched blue mountain state I'm finding it hard to take Alan Richardson serious in Reacher.

    Can only see Thad Castle 😅

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,275 ✭✭✭ S.M.B.

    Is Uploaded worth catching up on before Season 2? I remember skipping it at the time of release because critics were a little luke warm but I could be wrong.

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,503 Mod ✭✭✭✭ TICKLE_ME_ELMO

    You know, I'm struggling to remember most of it. I don't think it was hilariously funny, it was more like gentle humour? I completely forgot about it until a few months ago when I was watching something else with Robbie Amell in it.

    Out of interest I went back through this thread to see if it was discussed before and there's one post from me saying I was 4 eps in and it wasn't what I expected but I was enjoying it 🤷‍♀️

    I doubt that's much help to you but for what it's worth I don't finish things if I don't like them, so..... I guess I liked it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,275 ✭✭✭ S.M.B.

    That's exactly the type luke warm reaction I recall at the time. I think given Greg Daniels track record it was considered to be a bit of a let down.

    I had no idea it was one of his shows. For what it's worth, I started Space Force a few weeks ago and stopped after like 3 eps, so I'd definitely say Uploaded is better than that.
