I liked how they changed it up, not set in a modern city. There was a nice mix of political intrigue mixed in with the whole Zombie thing. I am looking forward to season 2.

That's pretty much how my kids watched/played it. They pissed themselves laughing for about 10 minutes because he nearly ate a worm. Most of their decisions were the ones most likely to cause him to die. I think that's probably the target audience.

Does anyone know the name of this show? It was a German sci-fi drama set in a small town involving a missing kid and people inadvertently time travelling.

Watched it sometime last year but I can't remember what it was called.

Santa Clarita Diet had been cancelled... Standard Netflix stuff, show is popular, fans and critics love it, cheap to make and has a cult following... cancel it. So they can invest in my Adam Sandler projects.

Starting today, when you watch Netflix on your TV, it should sound even better.

Some of the most iconic moments in TV and film are defined by their score. Without its beautiful theme music, would The Crown be as majestic? Would the eeriness of Stranger Things come across in the same way?

Often the subtlety of sound may go unnoticed, but it can have a profound impact on the atmosphere of a scene and fundamentally change how a viewer responds to it. The magical combination of sight and sound brings viewers closer to the story, and that’s why we support creative technologies and features like 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos® and Netflix Calibrated Mode.

Today we’re excited to announce a new feature, high-quality audio, which takes our sound quality to another level. We gave it this straightforward name because it fits: high-quality audio delivers audio that sounds closer to what creators hear in the studio, so every little detail is captured for a richer, more intense experience. Additionally, if you have bandwidth or device limitations, we’ve made the feature adaptive so that we will deliver the best possible audio to match your capabilities. This is similar to what we already do for video.

The Member Experience

Most TV devices that support 5.1 or Dolby Atmos are capable of receiving better sound. Depending on your device and bandwidth capabilities, the bitrate you receive may vary:

5.1: From 192 kbps (good) up to 640 kbps (great/perceptually transparent)
Dolby Atmos: From 448 kbps up to 768 kbps (Dolby Atmos is available for members subscribed to the Premium plan)

We expect these bitrates to evolve over time as we get more efficient with our encoding techniques.

So it's your fault that Santa Clarita Diet is cancelled?

Bastard.

I'm considering cancelling my subscription and just getting it when there's a new Stranger Things, The Crown or Better Call Saul season.

There's just so little high quality content compared to a couple of years back, Disney/Fox and Warner pulling content in favour of their own upcoming services has had a serious detrimental effect on the movie lineup, I can't believe how much cheap trash is on there now and can only see it getting worse.

When I look for movies to watch now I don't even bother looking on Netflix and jump straight to Prime.

Prime just has the issue of a lot of films not being included in the subscription. It's not just new releases either, I wanted to watch Die Hard last Christmas and my only options were to rent or buy the SD version for something like £6.

I ended up watching on NowTV in glorious 720p I'll be picking up the 4K Blu-ray for my annual watch in future.

I'm anticipating the new Disney and Warner services, especially the latter when it comes to classic movies on demand.

Glad to see a second series of The Rain as that was pretty good.

Tuca and Bertie is out now.




Some of the same people as Bojack Horseman are involved in this, though this show has a Broad City vibe to it.

Anyone else watched The Money Heist?

I started it recently and was instantly gripped to it. Real good thriller show!
