Finished DEADWOOD a few days ago and watched the movie yesterday. A shame the show ended so early. Thatís one I could see watching for many more seasons. The characters just draw you in so much. The movie was a very well done epilogue. Amazing that they got the entire living cast, except for one, back 15 years after the last episode. Powers Boothe was sorely missed. 

Now, on to VERONICA MARS. Iím about 4 episodes into the first season.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS Complete Season boxset offered on iTunes for $19.99.  A steal.  Buy it now!   Great series and costs less than two specialty drinks from Starbucks.

Finished my marathon of NEWSRADIO.

Such a great series.

But.... what's next? Multiple references to GREEN ACRES have me leaning in that direction.

Watched season 1 of JACK RYAN on Amazon. I liked it a lot. I'll be back for season 2

****

This is a show I should be watching I read a lot of the Clancy novels seen most of the movies but they really made it a point to let viewers know they were not basing it on the books.   

Currently watching Season 1of Homeland

Watched TOS's The Changeling on my old tube tv. Unfortunately the station showed the digitally enhanced version which negated the effect I was after, at times.
The voice of Nomad, or as Scotty put it "that mechanical beastie",is  ingrained in my head as a TOS sound. I know the voice actor did a few more episodes of TOS which had that same impact on me.

As today marks the 20th anniversary of the Moon being blasted out of Earth orbit, I popped Breakaway, the first episode of Space: 1999, into the ol' Blu-ray player.

I wonder what I would have thought back in 1975, when I first watched the series, if someone had told me that I would be watching it twenty years after the fictional events in that then far off science fiction-y date of September 13, 1999. Oh, I feel old.

Öthat then far off science fiction-y date of September 13, 1999.

ēē

Not really so far off tho, was it? A bit less than 25 years, and, just six years after the first Moon landing, we could already see that the space program was losing steam.

A review I read of SPACE ODYSSEY back in 1969 faulted it for placing its key events much too close to us, chronologically. The reviewer, writing in a San Fransisco paper, pointed out how long it had taken to build the BART train system, and that was without the need to ferry component parts 250,000 miles across space. TONS of component parts!

SPACE: 1999 perhaps saw itself as existing in the same reality as SPACE ODYSSEY, so made the same assumptions, but the tech was FAR beyond anything we could have achieved in so short a time.

Decided to venture into FRIENDS Season 8. Got a bit less than halfway, before it started to range into territories I'd as soon avoid.

What surprised me, tho, was how little I remembered. Whole episodes that might as well have been brand new for me (tho oddly peppered with bits and pieces I DID remember).

The Brad Pitt appearance is now just sad.

I did start GREEN ACRES, tho with a friend who had not seen it before. She enjoyed the first three episodes, and wants to continue, but that means I can't just charge ahead marathon fashion. Have to wait for her next visit.

(GREEN ACRES has the dullest first episode in the history of television. It's a wonder anyone came back for more!)

A little early-for-Halloween viewing of:

Salem's Lot [1979 mini-series]

For about the 57th time... one of my all-time favorite horror/vampire movies, easily in my personal Top 10.

Well-made, thoughtful, intelligent, believable, and scary!

And 40 years later, still extremely underrated, in my opinion.  Great cast, great score, great direction.
