Is this what NordVPN can help with? Am I allowed to ask that question, here? :o

Yeah, I use NordVPN for a certain degree of online privacy and you can also use it to fool steaming sites into thinking you are elsewhere. Want the USA catalogue on Netflix, no problem. For instance, I can watch Adult Swim, whilst actually being in the UK. I also will occasionally use torrents if I desperately want to see something and can't find it, so I use a VPN to keep that activity private too. I don't own a TV, or subscribe to that many streaming services, so the VPN kinda pays for itself.

ExpressVPN isn't bad either. I've been using it for years. I have it on multiple devices (cell, laptop, two desktops). I've been watching UK BBC shows for quite a while. At first BBC required a UK TV license to watch any entertainment programming. But after a year the BBC lets me stream all their shows. I got to learn that what the US calls "illegal dumping" in the UK it's called "fly tipping." It was on a comedy with Martin Clunes as a driving instructor.

For my home computers I mostly use it to view what "isn't available in your area" and for portable devices the encryption prevents you from being a victim of hacked public wifi.

Yes, it's really infuriating! No wonder people turn to VPNs and Piracy: Here we are, willing to pay for a certain content, only to be told "I'm sorry, we only can take your money if you're in the right area of the world." The CW Homepage does not even load at all here, it just tells me, that It'S only available in the US.
On Amazon prime I wanted to buy an episode of Columbo. The local Site did not have all episodes, so i figured: doesn't matter, I just buy it from the US site. Yeah, no way: I can only by it, if my IP and my credit card are US based.

That's so stupid for both sides!

No kidding. I suppose it has to do with contracts but it seems a lot of money is being lost.

One common comment I saw throughout the day that the reboot was announced was worry about the show being on CW meaning that the characters would be played by uncharacteristically young actors. Hopefully this tweet from jms will calm those worrying about it.

It's like people aren't willing to consider that a major reason that CW greenlit the B5 reboot was so that they could stop making exactly the same kind of show.


I don't even mind Arrow / The Flash but it's not like they're such massive ratings grabbers that the network would be insisting that every show must be like them.

So long as we get Minbari and Narn in full makeup on Whose Line Is It Anyway? then I'm all for it.

Whose Battle of the Line is it Anyway? Sounds like something the warrior caste said when asked to surrender.

If it was good enough for the Drew Carey Show, it is good enough for me.
