March 3 – Project Blue Book streaming on IMDB-TV, Michael Malarkey’s virtual world tour, Aidan Gillen’s Rose Plays Julie in U.S. in March, game update & more!
🛸 Project Blue Book is back on our TVs, as it premiered March 1st on IMDB-TV. Both seasons will stream for free (with ads) or no ads if you an Amazon Prime customer. (via https://amazonadviser.com/2021/02/24/imdb-tv-titles-march-2021/ and http://www.noreruns.net/2021/02/22/new-to-prime-video-in-march-2021/) The rub is that so far, is that it’s not available to all. Their FAQ says “If you are in the US, you can instantly stream IMDb TV titles from your IMDb app via the IMDb TV page, the IMDb TV app for Fire TV and Roku, from your laptop or personal computer’s web browser via the IMDb TV page, and from the Amazon Prime Video app via the IMDb TV channel. IMDb TV content is currently only available when streaming from within the United States and US territories.” Everybody else will be geo-blocked. ☹ It was to have been expanded into Europe in 2019 but for some reason that did not occur, but a bright light is that one article pointed out in late 2020 that they were hiring for IMDB TV UK people. More details on IMDBTV is at their FAQ https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/discover-watch/imdb-tv-faq/GZML3SK6UQK8EMYV#. If you’re not in the US and want this streaming platform, tweet them at https://twitter.com/IMDbTV. The more feedback they get, the better (and don’t’ forget to mention Project Blue Book in your tweet!)
Another great thing about IMDB TV is you can find various other films the PBB actors have done. Michael Malarkey’s 2013 Dublin-based series Raw is free to watch, as is Aidan Gillen’s Love/Hate, while others require subscription or you buy/rent. Never knew Aidan made a horror movie (Wake Wood)!
🛸 And, if you’re new to Project Blue Book, or simply forgot about these gems, don’t forget to listen to or revisit the fantastic podcasts which SyFyWire did for each episode of the show. Tara Bennett did a great job interviewing the cast and creative folk on the show. Available at https://www.syfy.com/tags/project-blue-book-the-official-podcast or wherever you listen to podcasts.
