    I'm still watching it...but there's really no competition. At a more normal time (i.e., one when more shows were actually running new episodes), it probably would have fallen by my wayside by now.

    I just noticed that. It's 8pm in Hawaiʻi, but that's only because for cable networks we get the California feed at the same time California does. So that's 11pm Pacific. We honestly probably would have dropped it after the first episode, but since we're home 100% of the time now we are watching more shows. So we kept it just to fill time.

    Plebs has disappeared (seasons 1-3) from Hulu, while season 5 has begun airing in the U.K. . Several other shows have suffered the same fate on Hulu.

    Does anyone have a reliable method to catch-up on BBC shows that have disappeared from streaming services after the initial seasons?
    Some examples: The Repair Shop, Plebs, The Detectorists (available on Amazon), Friday Night Dinner.

    Long...
    Plebs is available on Britbox in the UK but not in the US. You can buy imported Region B Blu-ray or Region 2 DVDs from Amazon in Canada or the UK, but would need a region-free player (or a region B/2 player, at least). Some Panasonic Blu-ray players can do it (unofficially) with just some extra keypresses on the remote. Amazon Prime in the UK has it, and it may still be on Netflix in the UK. It may be possible to use a VPN to a UK location and watch it that way.

    Basically, like a handful of other British and Australian series, the only practical way to get them in the US is via Torrents.

    Do you have a Plex client set up? If so, send me a private message with your Plex user name or email address and I can give you a quick and easy way to catch up.

    OTOH, the stuff that's more marketable is exactly the stuff that we would have eventually seen on cable or streaming anyway. Here's a chance to see more niche films (and shorts!) that we might otherwise never have seen...
