    The Twilight Zone TOS. Just started season two. It’s neat to go back in time to when a TV series premiered in early September and ran 36 episodes in one season. It’s on Paramount Plus if you’re interested.

    Rerun of Law & Order SVU

    Episode where Rafael Barba tells Olivia he "knows what unconditional love is " ( while pointedly looking at her .) That was a beguiling teaser, but as far as I know, they never followed up on it in the show. Too bad. She always turned Rafi down, even for drink, but I think she should have given him a chance. I've mentioned this before, but I would have much preferred Rafael and Olivia giving it a go rather than having to endure watching a Benson- Stabler hookup.

    Sigh. Seems no one involved in this show wants to give a listen to guitargal' s romantic advice for the lovelorn.

    I didn't realize some of the Honor Blackman episodes were remade with Emma, I particularly like the one you've mentioned. I bought the DVD set of the first -I think- HB series but after about 3 or 4 episodes I gave up, I thought they were unwatchable, not just the image but the sound of some episodes was even worse than the image. In the unlikely event they get release with better quality I will try to revisit those.

    I watched the Blackman episodes on Amazon Prime. They seemed quite acceptable to me, but they are kinescopes and that's all they'll ever be.

    Once in a while, I'll watch the old Saturday afternoon Westerns (Wagon Train, Rawhide, etc). Great stuff.

    I use to watch the show . These days
    I can't stand his voice and Sgt Carter's constant yelling. It's hard to believe that show was such a big hit .

    Rewatching The West Wing in sequence. Not only a great all around show, but eerily relevant today, even if some of the political orientations are inverted in some situations.

    What do you mean by "in sequence"? With maybe four exceptions, every episode was broadcast in filming order.

    The best Danger Man/Secret Agent Man episodes were the last couple in colour and set in Japan! To me those are a prequel to The Prisoner.

    I should pull out The Strange Report and Doomwatch sets and dip back into those...

    I think a lot of "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.'s" success came by association, being a spin-off of "The Andy Griffith Show".

    "Gomer Pyle" is alright, but they never should have spun him off into his own series-He was so much better as a guest/secondary character on "Andy Griffith".

    Maybe I was late to the party when it was broadcast. Jeebus. Seriously?

    It was just a clarification. Sorry, I didn't consider that.

    I have them all on disc, and I'm about to do my annual series rewatch of both that show and Outer Limits that I do every Christmas.

    I put em on and have them playing in the background while I do work on the computer or play games etc.

    I’ve been watching it too.

    When it originally aired I was a young teen and I thought it was boring. Now I’m in my late fifties and the low-key humor appeals to me.

    Dangerman I'm only on the first disk but am thoroughly enjoying it. Very crisp and enjoyable plots, and good looking.

    Number 6 talks so much like John Drake, and one episode of Danger Man uses Portmeiron for a backdrop!

    BTW, there was recently a discussion of Paul Newman here and at many times In Dangerman McGoohan looks like Newman when he turns his head certain ways.
