Sure. The data still has to travel over (mostly) physical wires. Something like streaming video which is mostly one-way transfer of data would be less noticeably affected than something interactive like gaming, but the latency still has an impact.

Well that's just weird then as online gaming is largely fine, as is Netflix or whatever, but plex is just unusable

Two of those things will be coming from world-wide CDNs with nodes near Singapore. They don’t have to cross the planet. The other one is someone’s broadband in Bedford.

We don't have a Canadian TV thread so this will do. Letterkenny is a sitcom set in the titular town which is populated with idiots and weirdos. The dialogue is the star, being so dense and quickfire that it's possible to miss half the jokes on first watching. Also: the lead female character is stupidly cute, especially from the second season onwards.

These two short clips are pretty representative.

Lol, apologies. I obviously didn't notice your post at the time and I assumed it was so obscure that no one else would ever have posted about it so I didn't bothered doing a search; which I'm usually very good about.

Anyway, there you go: a recommendation from Bamba and Hearthly surely can't be ignored?

That's like Barry Norman and Roger Ebert really going for something, except a Norman+Ebert combo who like videogames as well, which gives their opinions extra street cred with the cool kids.

Billions - I hated pretty much every character except for the wealthy lady AUSA but then JOEL FROM NORTHERN EXPOSURE!

The US Attorney's wife is lovely. And Billions is a great show despite, as you say, the majority of the characters being complete arseholes.

The U.S. attorney's wife is only marginally less awful than captain winter's wife.

The Sinner on Netflix has managed to drag us in pretty well. It's an interesting premise, an ordinary lady unexpectedly goes berserk during a family trip to the beach and stabs some apparently random man to death. Nobody has any idea why but policeman Bill Pullman wants to find out. After a couple of episodes we were both saying that it was really good but also that it could easily go wrong if it went off in too stupid of a direction. Anyway watched a couple more last night and it's all coming together nicely.

We watched the first episode cold on a recommendation. To say that the murder took me by surprise would be an understatement :D

Indeed. But there's no way i'm going to watch The Walking Dead ever again. I'd rather watch reruns of Baywatch.

Not even the most hardened TWD fans would complain about this. The last season was garbage.
