Noted. Not Seen.

Lately, I've been getting my money's worth from Netflix Canada, which isn't always easy. I'm following season 4 of the Glenn Close drama Damages, and I'm getting a kick from the BBC Sherlock Holmes update, Sherlock. As the Canadian streaming catalogue is so diminished, (oh whither Canada, whither thee) and as there's no way to make a playlist I've been carefully bookmarking the films or shows I want to see and I've noticed others making recommendations too because let's face it, we all know the fatal flaw of Netflix et al… you can never find anything you like. Well, I have found a lot, the problem is I always want The Big Lebowski and there are very few of those around. But there are a lot of great British comedies like Saxondale, That Mitchel and Webb Look, The Catherine Tate Show or the classic A Bit of Fry and Laurie. I'll just share this list, copied straight from my browser and you can just see if anything suits your fancy. I hope this helps you on a night when you just can't find anything to watch.
