Man Like Mobeen

Feb 9, 2019

This looks like comedy gold.

I have treated myself to a discounted streaming TV subscription. The subscription is with a US corporation that is in dispute with European authorities about arrangement of its tax affairs and amount of tax paid on its revenue.

At the end of the day I watch a couple of episodes of “The Good Wife”. Yes, the programs aren’t Chekhov, but Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies) is warm, smart and brave. What a gal.

Fast show

If you are a Bridge, Borgen, The Killing kind of person who isn’t put off by subtitles, then the wonderful Walter presents a box of delights that can be streamed or downloaded (for 7 days) from the Channel 4 website.

Yes there are adverts every 15 minutes. Yes you have to reveal some personal information when you register for the service. A small price to pay. Of course, I am far too busy to watch this stuff, but I pass it on as a public service.

and oh so funny.

Fleabag

Probably derivative, formulaic. Yes, yes, guilty. Watch episodes 1 to 3 then throw the gears into reverse for episode 4.
