Finally got around to watching Netflix's "House of Cards." I'm about two-thirds of the way through the season, and it is really good.

I think you can watch the first episode without being a Netflix subscriber: http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/House_of_Cards/70178217

I also noticed the the "SuperHD" 1080p streaming is working again. It's not quite as good as Vudu's HDX, but the show looks very nice (shot with Red).

I've been watching Top Gear (UK) on BBC America.

I'd always heard that it was good, and I see why it was recommended to me. The cheeky humor is just about perfect. And there's lots of fast cars. Yee ha!

I'm at the same time watching the new episodes (Series 19) and the reruns (Series 5-8 more or less).

This comes at the same time that I'm getting into GT5 on the PS3. Now I can compare Nürburgring lap times with Jeremy Clarkson (rubbish!) and Sabine Schmitz (whoa, mama!).

Top Gear is awesome. The UK version is by far the best but I've found the American version to be pretty entertaining as well.

I'm still peeved at Amazon Prime for suddenly charging to watch Top Gear. It was free when I first got into it.

GREAT show!

Loc: It's all about the location.
Used to watch Top Gear but over time I found Clarkson's antics a bit tiring and set up. My favourite auto reviewer by far is Chris Harris who actually knows how to drive the cars he tests and give you in depth discussions with industry insiders.

Last fall while on our River Cruise on the Rhine River, we stopped for the day in Arnhem, Holland. This was the site of a vicious WWII battle - Operation Market Garden - over a bridge there, where the Allies lost big time. We took a tour of the battle sites, museum & large Allied Cemetery there - very sobering. Our Avalon Waterways Cruise Ship was parked almost under the present bridge & it was kinda eerie sitting on the deck drinking a beer with it in our view.

While in HMV the other day, I purchased 'A Bridge Too Far' on Blu Ray for $8 that chronicles this story. This is an epic film from 1977 that includes a stellar ensemble cast of Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Gene Hackman, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Ryan O'Neal, Robert Redford, Liv Ullmann and more. 176 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: 5.1 DTS HD Master Lossless Audio.

This is a masterpiece that has been wonderfully remastered both video & sound - the surround sound track is no doubt far better than the original & is thankfully not over done in LFE. What I found to be most amazing is that the 'battle special effects' & 'flying sequences' were mostly all real - no CGI that can be so obvious in many battle type scenes. It must have cost a fortune to stage this stuff.

This is definitely a 'man's film' that is well worth watching.

That is one of my favorite war movies, I saw it in a theater with my parents back in '77(?) when it was released.

I put it in my amazon shopping cart queue.

But I ordered Preditor 2 and Princess Ka'iulani instead today.

I've been hooked on the Jodi Arias case. True crime is disturbing and fascinating to me at the same time.
