OK, I'm back. All caught up.
I started with season 1 streaming on Netflix (CC). Then had to get the season 2 DVD's from Netflix in order to get the CC. Then watched the first two episodes of season 3 streaming through Amazon, which were also CC. I had to pay for those, which I guess is why they aren't available to watch free on hulu.
Then on a whim I went to PBS's site and the first two episodes of season 3 are avaiable there for a limited time, but they are the American version. I have been watching the UK versions. For the heck of it I started episode 2 and the first five minutes were nothing at all like the one I watched last night on Amazon
It appeared even the episode's main storyline was different. Interesting. I will continue watching the UK version through Amazon.
Oh, and check this out, Amazon offers closed captioning if you watch season 3 on the computer, but not any "outside devices" they called it. I called to ask. So even though I can stream Amazon's instant videos through my Playstation 3, not all the features are avaiable.
I discovered that I can stream right from my laptop to my TV with an HDMI cable, so that's what I did.
Today I will watch episode 3 of the UK version. I am curious if it will resemble the Amercian version episode 2 that I started to watch.
And I think the only thing that disappoints me in the series is the way some of the characters seem to flip-flop who you think they are. Especially Hughes and O'Brian. I preferred the more stern Mrs Hughes, who was like the female version of Carson. And I have no idea whose side O'Brian is on. Both it appears. She must be bi-polar
