Court of Opinion

Yesterday I was lamenting the possibility of trying to figure out how to watch Amazon shows on my television. Today I learned I must figure it out.

"Red Oaks" 
From executive producer Steven Soderbergh, this coming-of-age comedy follows a young assistant tennis pro at Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985 and the misfit co-workers and wealthy club members he meets — including an alluring art student and her corporate-raider father (Paul Reiser).
Apparently Amazon will air five pilots over the Labor Day weekend -- including "Red Oaks" -- and then wait for feedback from viewers before deciding which ones to order full seasons of. This one is a no-brainer for me, but I wonder what the general public will say. "Phenom"(!) wasn't exactly a smash, you may recall, and tennis movies tend to be the worst!

I read your blog religiously. I watch all my amazon shows on the big teevee thusly: I use the Amazon Prime app on the iPad and with an AppleTV I just use the AirDisplay feature. Easy Peasy. But then this requires an iPad and an AppleTV. I haven't gone near a PC or MS products in years. They give me the willies.

And I know longer am beholden to cable - just huluplus, netflix and amazon prime.
