  8. I know this should be easy but I tried to search where it has movies/tv for a certain show. I have no clue on what I’m doing wrong but it bring anything close to what I put in. Are there directions for the menu items on the left of the main screen. I’m sorry I’m truly confused and I usually catch this stuff pretty quickly. I feel so dumb.
