Wanting some short comedy before bedtime last night, I discovered “Laid” on Netflix, which proved to be so delightful, I spent the next 2 hours binge-watching it.

It is an Australian comedy about a woman who discovers that a several of her past lovers have died – in unrelated and unexpected ways – and looks for a pattern.

I’ve just finished watching From Dusk Till Dawn, the TV series, on Netflix. I was a great fan of the original film (but not the sequel/prequel), so I couldn’t help but check out the series. However, I had severe misgivings, only tempered by the fact that Robert Rodriguez, the director of the film (and so many other wonderful things) had a directing credit on the series.

I have to say that I enjoyed it sufficiently to watch all 10 episodes. However, my misgivings were largely justified.

Big spoilers for both film and series follow.

I mentioned earlier that NetFlix had produced a US remake of the British TV political drama “House of Cards”.
