I've reconsidered Hanna it isn't absolutely total shit. Kind of a mashup of Skins and Jason Bourne films but not as good as that description sounds.

Elementary is a fun procedural, good leads and doesn’t disappear up its own fundament.

Not on UK Amazon though, annoyingly

Shit, sorry. Someone’s already told me this in the thread about it but it’s literally the only thing I use Amazon Prime for so it’s the only thing I associate with it.

It’s an Elementary boxset I beam into our home, basically.

Have you tried Burn Notice? Similarly unpretentious fun procedural but with an ex spy instead of a Sherlock

The Expanse.

just started watching this- loving the lack of exposition & the production values generally. a bloke I worked with aeons ago, when he was a camera operator, directed the first episode. in fact, he's a bit of a name director now, which is delightful because his boss on the soap, back in liverpool in the 80s, gave him shit & said he'd never amount to anything. I'd love to throw my awards in the old bugger's face if it was me.

I did watch this when it was on Channel 5 (I think?) and stuck with it mainly for Bruce Campbell and the occasional interesting guest star, like yer man who was in Animal House/played the VP in West Wing. The main guy and IRA woman were a bit bland.

Think Wentworth (the Prisoner Cell Block H reboot) might be available on Prime.

Accidentally got a 30-day trial while ordering a nose hair trimmer, so might as well make use of it for a few weeks.

...or was it by accident?
They tried that on me last week. Bought something and opted for free standard delivery but they decided I'd prefer free Prime delivery instead (I was aware of the choices and specifically picked the one I wanted). Went back to the order and tweaked it back to what I'd requested and cancelled the free month on Prime. Sneaky cunts.

I started off thinking he was quite bland but grew to really like him. He has great comic chops and does some great character work when he is pretending to be someone else

Loads of Elementary is now on Amazon, as well as all of Justified. Which is nice

Justified is properly excellent, and doesn't deserve to be lumped in with the wacky white man procedurals. Dips a bit in the penultimate season, but the finale is a stormer.

I got a Fire TV Stick a little while ago, location copyright issues mean I can't view Prime films/shows in the app itself, have to go into the Silk Browser and log into Prime Video... HOWEVER, I just treated meself to an Amazon Fire HD 10 last week and the Prime app works fine on that.

while I was in madrid the last week, the mrs swiped my ipad to binge-watch some hospital drama that she said she couldn't get on her ipad despite paying for prime. so I went into the settings on her ipad & told it that it was in blighty, & behold! the show appeared & I got my own damn ipad back.
but I'm worried about brexit.
