1) my phone blocks numbers not in my contact list
2) the gsm standard does not guarantee SMS delivery. If I get one of these messages, legit or not, I'll not be putting my life on hold.

My first job out of university was with a large international German electronics manufacturer with a rude sounding name; they'd sponsored me through uni.
I was tasked with generating multiple EDIFACT messages from the SQL database using VB, one of which was the INVOIC file. One of the fields in the message, I can't remember which, indicated by use of a single character whether the message was an invoice or a credit. I got it the wrong way around and accidentally sent out around DM 10 million of credit that should have been invoices.
Fortunately we only invoiced our regional offices around the world, not the end customer, and the mistake was quickly spotted.
The producer said on Radio 4's Today program last week that it was being released weekly because it's not like a drama, in that you will want to binge watch, as there is no story to be continued. It's just 3 blokes cocking about in different cars/locations each week.
As far as I remember he said it was the production team who wanted it to be weekly, not Amazon.
