    Repeats of 'Judge Judy', as well as 'Lawman' and 'Rawhide'.
  3. I just finished a run through of all 4 seasons of The Wild Wild West.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Silver Surfer Love Is Understanding

    My wife wanted the complete series of "Matlock" for Christmas. We've been watching one or two episodes nightly. I understand it's popularity, but I find Andy Griffith off-putting in every role but Andy Taylor and even "he" can be a bit much in some of the later seasons. I guess watching "A Face In the Crowd" too often has spoiled my enjoyment of his work. Griffith is that good in that film.

    All 11 seasons of the X files and also binge watched "Fringe"

    I must say watching X files again twenty years later is definitely mind blowing in similarities of the last 3 years

    I am finally re-watching Star Trek for the first time in years. I bought the original Blu Rays here, and I am enjoying the original effects. The "updated" effects are already dated, and the original films remind me of how my imagination took shape. The acting isn't as hammy as I'd long thought, and some of the stories are very good. THAT BEING SAID, there is a LOT of cheese on that plate as well.

    Match Game '77

    Started with '73 but at first I was watching sporadic episodes, whatever YouTube recommended. Then, with one essentially random episode, I started watching chronologically. Have seen them all from somewhere-in-73 up till episode 1010 or whatever I'm on, but at some point need to go back and pick up the early ones I skipped.

    An episode or two a day, often while doing something else.

    Time have changed, and I'm not going to voice the tired lament, 'You sure can't say that on tv anymore!' A lot of it deserves to be in the past. But much of it remains fun and nostalgic.

    I found Remington Steele, The Fall Guy, and The Pretender on Amazon Prime, along with Charlie's Angels.

    Shows from this century include Person Of Interest, reboot Hawai'i Five-0, and I'm cycling through Castle for the 3rd time.

    Upto the 4th season but finding the always dim Duncan a bit of a trial, and Archie is annoying. He always seems to be going the wrong way. Lexie deserves better.

    The Market In Honey Lane. A 1967 series made by ITC/ATV for the ITV network in the UK centering around an open market and a pub in the east end of London. It was made at Elstree studios and the BBC's East Enders is made in the same location.

    Very high quality show said to have given Coronation Street a run for the audience in it's first year but then was cut in half and moved around the schedule in many areas and disappeared after only two years. Toke Townley, later Annie Sugden's Dad in Emmerdale Farm, appears.

    Decided to revisit Columbo having enjoyed the Peacock series "Poker Face" which has some definite Columbo vibes to it. So I punch in Columbo season 1, episode 1 and get to enjoy Jack Cassidy as the guest villain. So I'm thinking "Hey this is actually pretty good" and get to the end credits "Directed by Steven Spielberg." :agree:

    The first episode is really great, but the rest of the episodes can't seem to reach the level of the first.

    I still wish this show would get a proper blu ray release. If Star Trek, Batman, and Lost in Space deserve it, so does TWWW!

    High rated show cancelled for being too violent.

    Couldn't find a copy anywhere so having to make do with some tv rips.
