    Anybody else watched it?

    It's better than I thought it would be, not really scary. Probably more tame than things like the Walking Dead.

    Yeah, watching it. Do find it a little frustrating though (not like me to nitpick is it!!).

    The soldier looking for his sister. Pretty much everyone is gunned down, stabbed or hacked to death immediately, but no, for some obscure reason he thinks his sister is still alive some hours later.

    He then goes to the ticket only, exclusive freak Purge circus thing where he encounters an army buddy. The colleague asks him to join him in the shooting range and the soldier boy says the Purge is not his kind of thing. The army buddy just accepts it and says nothing. The soldier boy says nothing and doesn't even ask if this buddy has seen his sister.

    Nuts!!

    'The Purge isn't really my thing'.

    'Erm, what are you doing in here then'?

    Nope, none of that and the soldier wanders off without even asking his buddy if he had come across his sister.

    Quite enjoying it, but some things are rather ridiculous.

    Don't know of you've watched the latest one, Nick, but I can't get rid of the audio description no matter what I do.

    Got to be an Amazon problem. Can't get rid of it whatever audio option I choose.

    A godsend for those who are visually impaired I'm sure, but I am finding it a complete nightmare.

    It's awful. Totally ruins the show.

    Sounds really mean my saying that, because if you are visually impaired I know it would be invaluable.

    Amazon Fire TV box.

    It's definitely an Amazon problem. I can play any other show without problem.

    Try another set-up. What other devices do you have access to?

    It's just this one programme though and just this one single episode of this one programme.

    Thanks for your concern :) , but like I say, it's an Amazon problem.
