Pretty disappointing really given Prime does not do HD so that's many more shows we won't see in HD, not that there is a large number of shows on offer now.

Plus they only do that annoying AAC-HE LATM audio.

Elementary is a show that is going to last more than one season so that would be a lost. And Strike Back is pretty good and well into season 3(?)

The rest I don't really care about but it's more the principle.

still waiting for Top Gear in HD, so a bit disappointed Prime still has it.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

freitasm: Vegas is a very good show. Elementary is not as good, not even close, to BBC's Sherlock.

Have not seen Vegas but the reviews are good. Elementary is certainly not as good as Sherlock but they were not trying to copy Sherlock which would have been impossible. But it's watchable.

What season did Prime screen? There seems to be some confusion between 1 and 2 as they are apparently differently labelled in US from UK.
I'm just trying to figure which to d/l.

I was disappointed that Crownies got pulled too. I thought it was shaping up quite well for an Aussie production.
