One thing I like about this show is they hired real Russians to play Russians. So instead of some American actor speaking with Pretend russian accent, they have Russians speaking russian and just have subtitles. That just makes so much more sense. I hate when they have people speaking Bad English, pretending being Russians, Germans or worse yet Chinese.

I haven't watched that particular show but, I agree 100% about pretend ethnic speakers...

The next season is supposed to be the last. A lot of us are trying to guess what's going to happen.


Somebody just posted all 15 seasons of CSI on Icefilms, so I'm watching them all over again. Today I'll binge watch the last 5 episodes of Season 2. I just saw a familiar face on S 2 E 17 - Aaron Paul made an appearance on that episode. That was only a couple years before breaking bad, but he seemed so much younger.

The TV was going while I was doing kitchen work or hiding in the basement (it's my "Mom Cave" ), so it was a few hours of "I know I've seen this show but I don't remember how it ends".*


* AKA old episodes of "Law & Order - Criminal Intenet"

Outnumbered

Outnumbered is another BBC comedy that has been around a few years and I'm just now hearing about. I'm 2 episodes into the whole of 34 streaming on Hulu, and despite a risk of losing membership in the Curmudgeon Club, I heartily recommend.
