Dispatches from the Front

Happy Holidays guys! I recently rediscovered your show, and am enjoying it immensely. Quick question, do you have any recommendations for streaming in an RV? Because I don’t want to use all of my telephone data in on weekend, and I don’t want to watch the same old DVDs. I guess this is more of a internet question, but I figured I would ask the people who knew the most about streaming. If you can offer any help, we would greatly appreciate it.





I hope this gets to you before you record for the week. 

I just tried to download a couple of shows from Netflix for my ride home on the bus and Netflix told me that I could only download this title one more time before “”December 22, 2017″”. 

In preparing for a cross country flight before Christmas, I had downloaded a bunch of stuff and didn’t watch it. So I deleted it to free up space. Now, I’m learning that you can only download something 3 times a year. 





Do you guys have a suggestion of a good app to keep track of all the TV shows and movies you want to watch? Every time you guys mention what you’re watching, I want to add this somewhere, but I don’t have a good hub for this (other than an endless Google spreadsheet, which isn’t that convenient), or tracking it on watchlists across multiple apps. If it happened to allow for music too, and maybe notes about why I’ve added it, that would be amazing. Thanks!

To Brian,Tom, and Bryce:
Enjoyed the KILLIES Show very much! You all had very good choices! Cordkillers is one of my best recommendations for Discovering new shows and movies.
I am especially happy that Tom included the CROWN and DOWNTON ABBEY on his list. I am also an Anglophile and enjoy those kinds of shows too. I normally watch zombies and science fiction, but enjoy History too.
Thanks much! Best Wishes in the New Year!
