Classic TV Shows

Just chillin' today, watching tv. Comet TV on 7.3. Classic scifi shows that are so bad they are good, like SuperCar, Stingray, Fireball XL5 and ThunderBirds, the marionette 60s shows filmed in "Supermarionation" !! :jet:

Interesting how the crew of the Stingray all work for W.A.S.P. (World Aquanaut Security Patrol) and the most diverse of the main characters has a southern or German accent, not another race to be seen other than white, but we didn't know any different back then. It was just an adventure show.
 
I watch Star Trek in the evening on Heros and Icons TV. Star Trek, TNG, DS9, Voyager and Discovery, all one after the other. Well, ok, I quit after DS9, really never liked Voyager and Discovery.

I've been binge watching Homeland all weekend (probably the only person in the entire universe that's never seen it). I'm just now on Season 2 and Carrie was just about to bust Brody for being a spy and the damn electricity goes out for 30 seconds. And the internet stayed out. Then I got the internet back on. Then the roku couldn't find my connection (or whatever). I can see all the neighbors, can't see me. Then I finally figured out what my connection name was but didn't know the password. Two hours later my son, who had absolutely zero interest in helping since he's playing Zelda and none of this affected him, finally tells me just unplug/plug the Roku.

Who knew?

Why does Brody's wife call him Brody? That's weird.

Several months ago I ran through a lot of My Favorite Martian and Dennis the Menace.

Do you Mayberry fans remember the episode when the freedom riders from New York (en route to Selma) stopped by wally’s Fillin station for a pop and Barney shot the Jewish feller??? Is was an odd choice for show, but topical for 1964.....

Damn. Actually found something worth watching tonight.

A channel labeled INSPHD is running How the West Was Won with James Arness.

I was a big fan of Hill Street Blues back in the day. Watching it now is telling with things like pay phones and people smoking at roll call.

Well, I can say with 100% assurance that Barney Miller was the most accurate police show. Even though is was a comedy, I can identify with every character as someone I worked with.
