TV on DVD What are you watching now?
« on: February 23, 2013, 07:44:59 PM »
The last month plus killed of season 4-6 of Adam -12. I have fond memories of this show from childhood and been watching on ME-TV. Bought some I haven't seen in almost 40 years. Well worth the easy price from Amazon.
 I'm a BIG fan of old westerns and I have to say that aside from Wanted Dead or Alive ,Tales of Wells Fargo Season 1-2 is a great series. I am now on the last disc and this show is really addicting tho many of the shows in this tin litho set are actually seasons 3+. Still a MUST have for fans of old western shows. Great story , drama ,morals, etc.

From Blockbuster.com been watching TrueBlood first 2 seasons. Guiltily addicting.

So what are you watching and would you recommend?

     "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea". I'm still working on the first season. This was a great show. At first it mostly involved espionage/commie plots, but later it got all MONSTERED UP! Can't wait! >:D
ALWAYS MONSTERING...

Original version of The Outer Limits.  Having watched The Twilight Zone series not so far back, I find Outer Limits to be (generally) not of the sams level of quality.  Still, plenty of good epsides in between.

I'm on disc 4 of M-Squad starring Lee Marvin. The 3rd time in as many years of going thru this one. Cool 50+ Y.O crime/detective show albeit some abrupt endings here and there. Not as cool the 3rd time around but still a high recommend for fans of the genre. Right now it's on Amazon for under $50 for over 100 episodes. Ya can't go wrong.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1970s Vol. 2

Reeeeeal sweet stuff, that's all I'm gonna say.  The other volumes in this series look pretty darn interesting too, most of 'em.  This one has an episode of "Danger Island" from The Banana Splits.  Wowwy wow.
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

Just finished the U.K.'s Wire In The Blood - truly got hooked on it!  I alternated it with the Columbo series, which was a great flashback - Falk's the best!  Planning to start Man With A Camera - a series starring Charles Bronson from the late 50's.  Never seen it before, but looking forward to checking it out.  Took a break from Dark Shadows - love the show, but have to be in the proper state of mind to get the most out of it.  Watch a couple of the old Fleischer/Famous Superman cartoons from the 40's every so often, too.  They're awesome!  One called "The Arctic Giant" is a predecessor of GODZILLA!

"From the Earth to the Moon". 12 one-hour episodes about NASA and the Apollo moon program -- best mini-series ever! Makes you think about the great things this country used to do when we put our minds to it. Produced by Tom Hanks for HBO.

M- Squad was a great show. A few other shows that were cut from the same cloth as this are Highway Patrol, The Felony Squad & Peter Gunn.
 You just can't go wrong with most programs & shows from this era.
