I signed up for the trial. If there isn’t a PS4 app I don’t think I can justify it though. Possibly would be if someone split it with me.

I'm just hoping they don't use Flash this time. Flash makes my browser unusable.

I don’t even use a computer at home. I don’t want to watch movies on my phone when I a 4K tv. I wouldn’t want to watch these on a computer either.

Not everyone has an Internet-connected TV, W.

No better way to watch porn, IMHO.

I dunno, on a 4K screen you might get distracted by the poor set design.

Season 2 of The Deuce was superb. Maybe even better than the first as we settled into the characters and their issues (although it's arguably not as hard-hitting as Season 1). Definitely one of the highlights of my TV year.

Also getting into Broad City. A great show. Love its manic energy and pace.

Less impressed by Season 3 of The Good Place. Where did all the great gags go?

Currently watching "Sex Education" on Netflix and I'm very pleasantly surprised. Gives you the vibe of an 80's flick, yet modernized. Looks goofy on the outside, but really gets into some emotional shit as the season goes on. Highly recommend this to you guys if you get some time. Give it a few episodes and you won't be disappointed.

Tried to give "Bodyguard" a shot as well, but I lost interest after a few episodes. Richard Madden was just blah to me.

Watched season 2 of "Bosch" on Amazon Prime. Started slow, got good in the middle, then petered out at the end. Was ok I guess. Will probably give season 3 a watch sometime this year.

really liked Sex Education, then again, I'll never let go of my Scully crush. she was under utilized.

I loved Bodyguard. I found the prime minister blah, i thought Richard Madden was fantastic. His character arch was one of the best i've seen in a while.

I couldn't get into Bodyguard. Some of the British political dialogue was so dense I had no idea what the hell was going on.
It's not destroying. It's making something new.

Just got the email saying you can now sign up. I think they only give you one movie a week to watch until the official start date of April 8. I accidentally signed up for the monthly instead of yearly. I'm trying to get it fixed.

Criterion Channel is available on: desktop, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku, iOS, and Android devices.
