Worth seeing/or not: TV/Streaming/Movies / Re: Netflix

It's maybe a cultural thing.
Pixar aren't known for doing bad movies.

I didn't watch much of it myself.
It's rated higher than Brave on imdb and I just watched the first half hour of that again while waiting for the USA GP to start.
I'd rate Brave higher, but I could laugh at the self deprecating humour.
In contrast, Coco seems a bit humourless for me.  :sad:

Sky has a new film  on every day. I download those that might be watchable (two or three a week) but I end up deleting most. Yesterday's was Coco. Oscar winning, apparently. Not in my house. Great graphics but predictable story. It got 20 minutes of my time.

I watched Justice League again instead. Quite enjoyed it. #2 is being cast just now.

It may be easier for them, but there is still a considerable amount of people selling unwanted items

I've decided to just give everything a thumb down rating regardless if I liked it or not, as a reflection on the shitty system.
It'll make fuck all difference to the suggestions it throws up since I need to go through 3rd party sites to see if they're worth watching anyway.

If all they get from users is constant negative feedback, they'll need to be more honest about the popularity of programmes on their platform.

The Netflix Smart TV app on WebOS is nothing like the browser version on PC and is rather annoying because you can't turn off the trailers sound.
Also, the rating system has been completely dumbed own and reviews seem to have gone out of the window. I much preferred the star system so you had an idea of what the general consensus was.
It's pretty shit now to be honest.

Ebay is gradually shoving aside private sellers. They want companies and bigger unit sales because it's less hassle for them. They're certainly making it more difficult for the ordinary guy to dispose of an unwanted item.

Five items sold using eBay
The only gripe is the fees from PayPall and eBay itself. Good thing about the last sale is that I didn't have to go through Paypal to get my money. It was paid and collected in person this time

You're both right.
It was released (then pulled) and it is still under testing. :azn:

I watched the last episode of S6 of Elementary. Different. For a while most thought the series would finish with this but no, S7 will be aired in the UK next Spring. The two of them were photographed filming a scene in Trafalgar Square.
