I love Frasier. I haven't seen a lot of Cheers, just a few episodes here and there. I did watch the first episode not long after I'd finished Frasier on Netflix. Maybe I'll get back to it sometime.

I've stared watching the new season 5 of Arrested Development, and I can tell it's already way better than season 4. The good part is they're conscientious about recapping the necessary plot points from season 4, because I only watched that season once and have already forgotten all of it. They made a "remix" of season 4, going in chronological order, but after two episodes in which it's all Ron Howard narrating the events, I gave up. Anyhow they seem to mostly be back in form with this season. There's eight episodes out now and another eight episodes to come at a later date.

I'm watching "Blood Line," which is only 3 seasons. I wish it were longer, since it's a really intriguing show. "Blood Line" has the same creators as "Damages," which is another one of my favorite shows.

I also recently rewatched all 7 seasons of "The West Wing." It's probably my favorite show of all time, and was really ahead of its time in many ways. It tackled issues that we are still dealing with today with intelligence, wit and grace. It has aged incredibly well for a show which first began airing in 1999.

The Keppers.. Who Killed Sister Cathy



astonishingly powerful and riviting seven part documentary begins with the investigation of the
unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik in Baltimore in 1969 but quickly becomes a much bigger
story exposing wide spread child abuse in the catholic church and local police force.. the cover-ups
that followed, protecting the guilty and silencing the victims..

Really shocking..

Anyone watching the new Lost In Space?

The first episode didn’t really grab me until the last 10 minutes. So I’ll give another episode or two.

I was never really a fan of the original, in fact I don’t think I ever saw a complete episode back in the day.

This sounds really interesting. I am going to check this out the next time I start a new show on Netflix.
Have you seen "The Staircase" on Netflix, Gant? Although quite biased towards the defense and Michael Petersen, it's a pretty riveting program to watch.

Bad memories from childhood. When you have a big brother, and you're like... 6... and there's one TV, you don't wind up with much say about the programs you'll be watching. To this day I can't go anywhere near Lost in Space or Land of the Lost. I always hated them. And Mannix.

I get what your saying Matt, however I was the older brother and was totally addicted to Lost in a Space :)
Until Star Trek came along that is...

I was the older brother, and while I have never seen “Lost in Space,” I did commandeer the television and regularly force my brother to watch “The West Wing” during my teenage years. He wanted to watch “Birds Of Prey,” which was a terrible comicbook program that only lasted one season.

. A few years ago, my brother decided to watch all the seasons of The West Wing on his own, which back then he had no interest in. He fought me every step of the way back then. He shared that after watching the series that he agreed that I was right about the show all those years ago. Some of us older brothers have good taste in TV. Which is far superior to our younger brothers. I never had a favorite spot on the couch. My brother could sit wherever he desired.

There's only one of me Matt :) :)

To be honest when we was kids there was only three tv channels (one virtually unwatchable) and only a very short time late afternoon allotted to children's tv so basically very little choice... Although of course I had best chair...

I don't really remember my younger sister having any real taste in tv but my Dad liked Star Trek which was cool... ( Tho I think some of the very short skirts might have had something to do with it ;) )

But I do remember the Sunday afternoon movie slot over here which is where I became addicted to movies, this is where I saw most of the Hollywood classics for the first time.. Westerns, war, drama etc..

Did you have Kung Fu Theater on Saturdays on your side of the pond? That was something we both enjoyed. Our favorite shows were the Adam West Batman series, Speed Racer (I'm going back to my youngest memories), Ultraman, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Adam 12. I remember in 1st or 2nd grade, we were asked to draw a picture of our favorite TV show -- everyone did the 9 boxes with the faces (Brady Bunch), but I did the cop car with the two cops. There's only one me, too!  ;D


But, Batman was far and away the highlight of my life back then. I can't remember watching TV with my parents, except that we were forced to watch Sonny and Cher with them every (I think it was) Friday night at 8 pm.  My brother and I each had these little kid-sized rocking chairs, and we sat front and center while mom and dad were on the sofa. They loved that show.

I dont remember Kung Fu Theatre Im afraid but I do remember  Kung Fu starring David Carradine. Big hit over here as well as Batman with Adam West..

We watched all those shows... and then The Sweeney came along.. Still our best ever cop show and one of the best tv series we ever made.. Very violent and realistic compared to any other cop shows around at the time..

The Sweeney





I never missed an episode all the years it ran..

Does Netflix in the US show many movies from before 1960?

There's about five or six only available here and a search by classic films bring up a lot from the 1980's!

Am I really that old now that the term "classics" now includes films from my lifetime? :o
