  1. It would seem this date did not apply in Aus. The movie had a cinema release here and has only just become available to buy and rent. Any chance of getting an accurate date for Aus out of Netflix David?

  2. jezza the first original one

    I tried to find this on Netflix last night to watch with the wife… luck, couldn’t find it. We watched a couple of eps of Killing Eve instead. Bit of a difference eh?
