I watched that last night.
I saw the episode "The Jar" as a small kid of maybe 5 or 6, and it stuck with me well into adulthood, but in a strange way. Back then my aunt used to babysit me. Her son, my cousin who was a couple years older than me, was really into The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents The Outer Limits, and all the Universal monster movies. We watched them all the time, they must have been really popular on TV back in the early - mid 60s. For the next 40+ years I was sure I saw something on TV in my youth about a bear in a jar, but it never made any sense to me. I guess that's how my 5 year old mind processed it, and I wondered if I'd ever figure out that distant and muddled memory. Well some time in my 50s Alfred Hitchcock Presents" was on rotation on one of the cable channels and I'd occasionally sit and watch it. I finally watched "The Jar" as it aired one day when I happened to be watching. And just like that my 40+ year old mystery was solved. It wasn't a bear after all. What a great episode.
Just binge-watched the second season of Stranger Things.
My second pass through Foyle's War, currently on series 8.
Up next series 3 of Bordertown, just released on Netflix.
Last night watched Charlie Brooker's Antiviral Wipe.
UK viewers find it on BBC iPlayer. Highly Recommended and a good laugh.

The Aquarium on Animal Planet channel this morning.
Now watching Mythbusters on Science Channel Go.
The latest episode of:
Ghosts (1987, Elijah Moshinsky)
Whenever I see this particular version Henrik Ibsen's play on film streaming on The Tube (it gets taken down on a regular basis) I stop everything and watch. The performances, including Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh, are exceptional. The drama is fairly dark and something like an exorcism - as the lie beneath a marriage surfaces and upends a gloomy and repressed household. Classic performance of a theater mainstay. Highly recommended for a dark mood.
