    The problem I think lies with when you watched Season 1 and if you watched Mad Men.

    People who, like me, started it as it aired had problems featuring another show with an enigmatic leading man with a dark and secret past. It was on the same network, in the same time slot and felt derivative. Like a bad photocopy. You could watch it and imagine the executives think "Hmm. What if we had Don Draper but it's computers instead of advertising."

    I'm sure if you watch it removed from all that baggage, it would play differently.

    I still found on rewatching that Season 1 was infinitely weaker than the rest but that's personal preference. Everyone is different. I still enjoy the pilot and the back end of the season.

    Aye, its over 3 years since man men ended so it had no impact in me watching it. Plus watching all seasons the first time together means you haven't forgotten any aspects of the story like that can happen with you are waiting a year for a new season.

    I think a better name for the series would have helped as well, it was kinda putting me off watching it until so many here was giving it the thumbs up

    Something shorter or snappier like mutiny or just catch fire.

    Do not watch the documentary on nasa called nasa: journey through space if you want to actually learn about nasa. Dear Jesus what amateur outfit produced this ? There are basic things that are wrong. Clearly nobody checked the words that the narrator spoke because Neil young didn’t land on the moon on Apollo 11 but apparently he did according to this. That’s the most glaring issue but there are things that annoy me as someone who has a huge interest in this stuff.

    Started watching Upload and I'm really enjoying it (although I am only 2 episodes in). It's set in a future where you can upload your consciousness to an digital afterlife.

    I don't think Netflix Ireland has any AMC shows so I wouldn't hold out hope. Stuff is constantly leaving Prime and popping up a couple of weeks later so that might happen...

    Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are AMC, aren't they? And it has had Mad Men in the past as well.

    Where can you see that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,334 ✭✭✭S.M.B.


    Where can you see that?
    The info is available from this view of the show details which I accessed via the 'Expiring from Prime in the Next 30 Days' filter on the website.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Search/dp/B074XFBN17/

    No idea why this information isn't surfaced within other app views.

    Managed to get the last episode of the first season in last night, that's something I suppose.

    Flesh and Bone - exceptional ballet drama.

    I finished Halt and Catch Fire last night and now I don't know what to do with my life. An incredible show, I can't believe I never heard of it until recently.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,076 ✭✭✭The Raging Bile Duct


    It's been great to make the recommendation for Halt and Catch Fire and to see so many people get sucked into it like I did. I'm quite sad I'm finished it.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,902 Mod ✭✭✭✭TICKLE_ME_ELMO


    Both seasons of Fleabag appear to be up at the moment. It seemed to always be one or the other for a while.

    Amazon want £1.89 per episode of Halt and catch fire!

    Somebody must have recommended it to people, got a buzz going and now Amazon see it is so popular they want to make more money out of it. Remember folks don't recommend.

    This is one of those posts where I'm pretty sure you're taking the piss but then I've been reading the Covid thread in the conspiracy theory forum out of morbid curiosity and now I don't know when someone's been serious or not anymore...

    This same thing happened with Justified recently; it disappeared then came back a couple of weeks later. Stuff like this just happens, AFAIK it's usually just a case of lapsed rights. The streaming services sign X months to broadcast something. Simple as, Amazon are fairly Machiavellian but wouldn't give them that much credit. Such is the life of online streaming really.

    For the record I was taking the proverbial.

    I got through 3 and a half seasons of HACF in about 10 days before it disappeared.

    Decent week for new film additions (in the uk anyway).

    Give it a few weeks though. Titles often leave and are added back in again shortly after or maybe it's moving to Netflix instead.....

    Hopefully ... I am halfway through Season 3!


  • Registered Users Posts: 398 ✭✭camz09


    Remember reading something here where if you search the title you can check if you're in the UK or Ireland selection of Amazon Prime video? I only remember if you're seeing Fleabag Season 1 you're in the UK/bigger selection..I can't remember the other title.

    Anyway I do feel there's quite a few that's gone, or maybe I've been thrown on the Ireland/outside UK section..I'm gonna go back on my previous watchlist that I screenshotted and check.

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

    For ages they only had Season 2 and 3 of Future Man but they've put up Season 1 so I started watching it last night. Very, very stupid but I couldn't help laughing at it.
