Yeah, I know about it, who is in it and everything. Just never seen it.
Also, never saw Titanic, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Saving Private Ryan, Star Wars 2 and 3. :)

Not a big movie watcher these days.

My hard drives are full of unwatched stuff that'll probably never be seen (at least not by me).

I think my working style is similar to yours, but I only have two screens (and maybe a tablet) on the go. ;)

So, binge watching of series is the thing for me - as you are doing.

BitTorrent and Plex FTW!  :popcorn:

Just re-done Peep Show, series 1-9, 22hrs, 2mins! Not in one sitting obvs. Benefit is being of a certain age by series 4 I've forgotten what happened in series 1 so when I've done series 9 and rewatch series 1 like i've never seen it!

Peep Show is class, unlike the US version which totally sucks carpet......

See how far you get through the US version (One ep. - cancelled!) - It's not even funny cos it's shite....

I lasted literally 30 secs, which is good for me in general lol!

I usually watch 3 movies a day

I don't watch much telly, but some things I can watch again and again.

These are well worth a watch:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Cards_(UK_TV_series) (Not the one you think - this one is from the 90's)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_Work_(TV_Drama)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_on_Mars_(UK_TV_series) - and the sequel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashes_to_Ashes_(TV_series)

(Means more to Mancunians as it was shot in streets many know)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boss_(TV_series)

(Proper American TV)

The UK market doesn't get too many subtitled French films (the non English speaking films are niche), but the Russian market does. On a cruise over New Year, wifey and I watched a few French films she said were 'classics', I had never heard of. They were all actually *really* good, despite the subtitles. Lots of geezers looking poignant, gazing out of windows smoking a Gitanne. Plenty of lithe birds, way too young for the older geezers, having angst over a doomed relationship (The French love all that). Sounds really cheesy, but I enjoyed them. If your Russian speaking woman suggests a French film, give it a shot. You might be surprised.......
