    This is so helpful... Amy is so damned good.

  • digs5446  

    How bout a "now streaming on Fandor" page?

  • SexyWarrior39  

    Anyone know how long it usually takes for the most recent season of Vikings to go Amazon Prime?

  • ScooterCat63  

    This was a great service until they started inserting ads and those ads mess up the show... I hear the ad, but see the show. It totally screws up the show and it won't play right after that.
