Is it basically the US remake / version of the Ian Richardson one? Got that boxset and thoroughy enjoyed when it was on originally.

Tempted to give the free trial a bash, but not got a good connection ~2mb at best.

Basically, yes. The "I couldn't possibly comment" phrase carries through to this which is good

My web connection is pretty ropey but handles Netflix fine. Well worth a try, nothing to lose

Annie Hall, Network and The Insider are all on there in HD (not on blu ray in UK as yet).

You should invest in Unblock Us then, I've barely watched Netflix UK since I signed up. Well worth for the extra £3 a month.

I have that too -- but TBH there's not a great deal on there that I've not watched. PLus I tend to consume netflix in a VERY varied way and its a pain not having such flexibility.

For some reason she's far sexier in this. As sharp says it must be something to do with the manipulative bitch persona ... altho I'd probably still cheat on her with Kata Mara.

There are lots of movies on there that don't show up in any category while browsing. I've found loads searching through moreflicks.

Finally finished the series and have to say I haven't been this gripped by a series since game of thrones which to be fair is basically an exact copy of the books.



So I also have been saying to my missus for the whole series that Zoe was the lead in Girl with a dragon tattoo, turns out it's her older sister!
