If we count stuff on DVD then episode 3 of City of Death. Ah, good Doctor Who.

Before the dark times. Before the retcon. A more sophisticated script, from a more civilised age.


Ah yes a Douglas Adams episode. Douglas Adams, Bob Baker, Terrance Dicks, Robert Holmes and Terry Nation; we shall not see their like again. You don't need big budgets or high tech special effects, and it doesn't really matter who the actors are playing the Doc or companions; what you need are imaginative script writers and a competent director.

Stumbled into a marathon of first-season Beverly Hillbillies, this afternoon. (1962)
The parental household never had a TV, throughout the 60's.

Any episodes of this series I saw were much later reruns from later years, when the tech for putting moving pictures in archive were much less Primitive.

The image quality is terrible; but the writing; albeit the same kitsch as it ever became, is fresh and brilliant, compared to the later episodes..

Alice in Borderland. Japanese series based on the graphic novel. Uneven pacing didn't sit well with me but when the action started it was overwhelmingly frenetic. Not my cup of saki. I did not continue with the series.

Police Woman season 1 episode 5--well, the pattern is broken. They decided not to make the women look bland in order to appease Angie Dickinson's ego as they did with previous episodes. Could be because Rhonda Fleming was the guest star pulling rank and Angel Tomkins was hard to make ugly--or maybe it is because the latter is a nymphomaniac due to a trauma who will sleep with anyone, even Jack Riley.
And since we learn Fleming lied about her rape--blaming a black gardener---turns out she was just upset about her daughter's wedding and cut her hair off and needed an excuse so she wouldn't be considered nuts, Angie still ends looking the best. Pat Morita guest stars as a porn photographer.

HUNTER series pilot 1984 -- Been many a moon since I watched this series. I had forgotten about Fred Dryer completely but not Stepfanie Kramer.
I can see he was picked for being somewhat reminiscent of Clint Eastwood. She reminds me of Suzanne Pleshette in appearance but not manner. The story of the first show is not well-written but I hear it improved into the third season and it lasted a long time. I may jump ahead to see what it's like. I don't remember watching it often.

Moving toward the end of season one of Tehran. This is a very gripping and interesting spy story. I think that the story is spoken mostly in Farsi, some in Hebrew, and some in English gives a very true feel. --- I don't mind reading the subtitles at all.

I remember that one fondly.
The Dyson Sphere was a neat idea I had never heard of before. I wish they had beamed down and explored it.

They re-created the original bridge quite effectively-- they did it again more recently for an exhibit and William Shatner was checking it out.

I watched (half-heartedly) an episode of Creepshow the series - Night of the Living Late Show. I only checked it out because it featured the 1972 film HORROR EXPRESS in sequences where people enter the movie and interact with characters. The interaction is very cheap (although they find a reasonable lookalike for Sylvia Tortosa) and it's more of a comedy than anything horrific. There's no horror at all except for the production values. I am so shocked how amateurish series like this look now--despite having a corporate brand name series title--it felt like it was filmed in someone's living room and they grabbed a couple of people off the street to star in it. It is almost like cinema karaoke.

A wet, but photogenic, bit of Scotland.
Broadcast TV? The Eurovision Song Contest. Mika's performance made me cry and and Ukraine won with a massive public vote. Probably the last broadcast TV (i.e. not on DVD) that I will watch till Eurovision next year. It took us 20 minutes to cable the receiver into the screen and find the remotes so we could watch it. I was surprised to find the batteries on the receiver's remote still worked.

Harry O season 1 episode 3 Guardian at the Gate

Barry Sullivan's dog is (temporarily) poisoned and Harry is hired to find out who did it.
Sullivan is hated by everyone because of his mean attitude and after he drives out his daughter Linda Evans from his insulting words, he
is alone with Harry who asks him, with David Janssen's typical underplayed surprise,

"you want me to make you lunch? Why don't you do it yourself?"

"I have never been interested in developing petty skills."

And then, when a guy who is running for office confronts Sullivan with the intent of killing him (although he admires him as a great architect)
he says to Sullivan, "I believe man's only excuse for living is to shake the world,"

Unimpressed and oblivious to the death threats, Sullivan replies, "Wrong. Man's only excuse for living is to create the world. Shaking it is the province of politicians and other psychopaths."

The Man Who Fell to Earth. I've seen the first two episodes and I've found it to be intriguing. An alien lands on Earth to complete 'the mission'. He has no social skills whatsoever but is kept out of trouble by a struggling single mother. I'll continue to watch and let you know if it gets better or turns into another train wreck.

The first four episodes of The Lieutenant (1963-1964), a one-season series created by Gene Rodenberry. Gary Lockwood stars in the title role of a young Marine Corps officer.

"A Million Miles from Clary" -- The Lieutenant has an old friend assigned to his unit. The buddy (Bill Bixby) turns out to be a goldbricking malingerer who manipulates his friendship with the officer, threatening the discipline of the unit. Complicating matters is the fact that the old pal's father is dying.

"Cool of the Evening" -- Out on the town one night, the Lieutenant helps a woman (Kathryn Hays) being accosted by a man. To his shock, she accuses him of being the attacker, in order to keep a secret of her own. Although she doesn't press charges, the scandal threatens to destroy his career.

"The Proud and the Angry" -- The Lieutenant goes undercover as a new recruit to find out if a drill instructor (Rip Torn) is the brutal sadist some accuse him of being. And who has been making anonymous phone calls to the DI's wife, accusing him of infidelity?

"The Two Star Giant" -- A clerical error winds up making the Lieutenant a temporary aide to a General (Neville Brand) who is summoned to Washington to defend his policies. As a subplot, the Lieutenant is dating the daughter of a Colonel who uses her father's rank to get her way.

It's a pretty good dramatic series, and all the guests stars listed above do a fine job. Made with the co-operation of the Marine Corps, it's obviously got a pro-military point of view, but it doesn't come across as propaganda.
