Working through Madam Secretary season 1 with final ep ready for this evening.  Never been a fan for Tea Leoni's acting, but she seems to have managed to make her craft passable in this one.  Not a bad series but overall makes me wish that West Wing had kept going, I rate it a West Wing Lite

Hope Monkey still gets the re-dubbing to keep it authentic.  Read recently that the guy who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers was the voice guy for the English versions of one of the characters in the original series

You see, if you had to sit the new immigration tests, this answer right here would see you kicked out...

Tried a few lately.

Bosch- pretty good.

Lucifer- ok but can only handle small chunks of it.

Taken- absolute shite, didn't make it past ep 2.

Hap and Leonard - can't decide. It flip flops from being very funny to very depressing.

Just get rid of it then. I don't own a TV anymore. Haven't for 4 years and I have not spent one moment of time thinking I'm missing out on anything.

How do you watch your shows G?  

You remember the outdoor bungalow - W/T all setup with TV on wall and portable hard drive for watching for me.

I read that the monk Tripitaka on monkey was played by a woman in the original series. That was confusing as a kid.

Yes, he was played by a she.

Apparently the new series has no Japanese (or Chinese, the original series set in China was cast with Japanese actors) in it, cept for one Asian (but I don't think Chinese/Japanese) actor.  Even then, they're NZ/Aus actors.  And Sandy looks like he's a girl too.

To me, this is one of those shows that shouldn't be touched.  It just had everything, the bad dubbing and everything.  Get Smart was another for me - it's perfect, leave it alone.

I'm pretty sure that Monkey Magic was just called 'Monkey' in England.  I never liked the program at all but I did like one called 'The Water Margin'.

In another 'late to the party', we watched 'The Night Manager'  recently. I thought it was very good but the reviews were 50/50 brilliant/terrible.

We lived TNM. It was the site that prompted all the cake for him to be the next James Bond. An I "heart" TS singlet derailed that!

Should have all of monkey in an hour or so. Time to relive my 8's.

Been some hype about that.  They reckon they have other shows from other networks as well.  Apparently weren't asking that much money from netflix as ransom, but they refused to pay.

Episodes released are pretty raw, wouldn't be 100% sure they are the finished product.  No haven't watched them, but saw a snippet of one, it has some coding along the bottom and a countdown on the top of the screen
