So Motor Trend has their own service for 4.99 and it has all but the last two series of top gear. I think it stopped at 25. It even has the first series that no one seemed to have online (well in the US at least).

My brother subscribes to Motor Trend, seems to really like it. It looks like they have those car mechanic shows they used to show on TNN/Spike, which I always found to be relaxing.

Ohh I know what you're talking about. There was this off road mechanic show every Sunday morning I use to watch. If you want to check it out, they have a a 15 day trial.

I remember eating lots of breakfasts while watching people do auto work that I'd never try myself :olol: I think I remember that same show, because I think I watched someone build their own rock climber.

The only name I remember is Shadetree Mechanic:

Comcast gives that Peacock streaming thing for free. But I looked and it didn't have anything interesting. I was hoping it would have the entire SNL seasons, but they only have the ones from this season.

It sucks that we went from having all the seasons on Netflix (albeit with many sketches and all music acts cut) to whatever clips are available on YouTube/NBC. At least we had Comedy Central reruns back in the 90s.

I found a huge collection of VHS captures somewhere on the Internet, but all the episodes are broken DivX files that won't play correctly :(

That HeyNow private torrent that started as a Howard Stern archive but grew to have tons of old TV torrents had every SNL but I never got around to grabbing them before the site closed.

I only subscribe to Disney for the Simpsons. Do they have anything else good?

Except for the Mandalorian, the originals haven't been that great. If you haven't watched that, I'd recommend it whether or not you like Star Wars.

Other than that, it's been good for nostalgia. I've been watching all of the 70s and 80s movies that I had forgotten about, like the Apple Dumpling Gang.
The Spiderman cartoon from the 90s holds up pretty well, plus all those daytime cartoons (i.e. Rescue Rangers, DuckTales).

Chris Lilley and the mighty boosh are overrated anyway.
The Mighty Boosh is the worst thing Noel Fielding has ever done.

Does Netflix have anything left?
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

The only thing that ever landed here in America was Old Gregg, we loved that bit back in 2007.

And Netflix? Yeah, it's not what it once was. We still have it because we're enmeshed in a complex streaming service sharing scheme. :olol: I pay for a Spotify family plan, someone else does Netflix, and a third person has Disney+. If it were me, I'd keep Spotify and go full bore back into piracy with Plex.

And I much prefer Noel in the Great British Baking Show. That show is the one reality show that I enjoy, it isn't all manic and crazy an American version would be.

Netflix is garbage. I can't remember the last good thing they had. The Ted Bundy thing was okay.

It was always going to get to the point where streaming breaks up into several services and they end up costing what a cable subscription does if you get all of them. So the people who complained about cable being too expensive and streaming was the future are screwed now.

That's if you want everything though. I just do Netflix, MotorTrend, and Plex. Sometimes I add Prime or HBO for a couple months.

I have to take this back. Da 5 Bloods was a very good film.

Would have to respectfully disagree. The jumping back and forth in time killed the flow imo.

I think it worked for the film it was. I thought the big issue was Spike didn't make the cast use Just For Men beard dye in some of the flashbacks.
