Hey gang here's a shout out to anyone with Apple TV + that has started watching Pachinko:
I do not have Apple TV so I'm curious what others on the forum might think. It seems pretty epic & a cut above the more superficial stuff I might watch. I am familiar with some of the actors like Lee Min-Ho that starred in the Korean live action series City Hunter.
Since this is a series based on generations of Koreans eventually making it in America I was at first confused by the title Pachinko, which is a Japanese game of chance. Realizing that it starts out in Japanese occupied Korea I guess the name is pretty fitting.
Is content on Apple TV + eventually shared elsewhere? Or on disc? Geez, I guess I could always read the book....
I haven't seen Apple TV + content elsewhere or on disc, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened. I've really enjoyed quite a bit of the programming.
HBO Max - April 7
Amazon Prime - April 15th
“Love, Death + Robots” Volume 3
premieres May 20 on Netflix
I see this as troubling; the online services are starting to slip in ad supported content. Take Bosch: Legacy as another example. I watched the first 4 episodes on Amazon Prime’s “sub” service freevee, that’s set up specifically for that. Problem is, we pay a yearly fee, that used to be ad free for all content. How long before we’re forced to watch ads for everything? My U-verse DVR has probably saved us years of our lives by fast forwarding over ads, maybe a recording device for streaming will be required in the future, but with delayed satisfaction coming with it. Our time is extremely valuable!Good reminder Mr. Pupster. I loved the first season, spaced out the 2nd one. So I have a chance to catch up for S3. I would highly recommend this series on Netflix.
Speaking of Netflix:
Just watched episode 4 of Outer Range; when the closing credits came on I was a little shocked by how much the song below was in your face surroundy. Very loud prominent rears which rarely happens on a streaming show like this. Probably an up-mix (very wide spread), but never the less, effective!
It just seems like these kind of shows do vary considerably as to how surroundy the music is. So when one does show up with apparent surround for effect in mind, it’s a real pleasure to experience!JP, JUST started BINGE WATCHING this AB FAB Amazon Prime 'Western' in 4K starring an amazing Josh Brolin and agree, the immersive 5.1 soundtrack with music from Supertramp, Springsteen et alia is SUPERB. Am on Episode 5. VERY HIGH RECOMMENDATION

I am so screwed, Mrs. Pupster just found "Magnolia Network"
Well I was shocked to see her watching it off our U-verse service, I'm not paying for it, so it must have been incorporated into our U-Verse package, because I thought for sure it was a Pay Channel!Wow, JP, and ONLY $4.99 per month. But you can now expect gourmet meals and maybe Mrs. P will build you a dedicated media room with the "Fixer Upper'
Magnolia Network is now available to stream when you subscribe to discovery+. Watch 45 original episodes, including Magnolia Table and Fixer Upper: Welcome Home - only on discovery+.get.discoveryplus.com
It's a spin off Lifestyle & Renovation channel from HGTV by Chip and Joanna Gaines, out of Wacko Texas (er sorry, Waco!)What's that? Something to do with Best Buy?
Edit: BritBox rules the upstairs family tv around here. Cor. Blimey.
