  1. I realise we are in a pandemic and that may have forced a shuffle in release dates, but Netflix is quickly becoming a wasteland when it comes to its original content, quantity over quality.

  2. Yes, Clint, some months it can feel like 500 channels and nothing on …

  3. Looking forward to Lucifer, Rust Valley Restorers and finally seeing Season 5 of Peaky Blinders.

  4. Might give Lucifer another look now that it’s in 4K, Aaron. And I believe S5 of Peaky Blinders will be the first in 4K.
