    Speaking of terrible...watched Silence. Or should I say watched the incredibly cute Kiernan Shipka and ignored the fact that even with Stanley Tucci doing his best to make it worthwhile, could not overcome the fact that watching 90+ minutes of people whispering was sooo last year, and done with more interesting monsters. I'll give a spoiler in saying that the family escapes the city, then encounters a cult. Well... a 'cult' that includes 7 people if you count 2 captives that were not really into the whole thing. The final battle lasts roughly 2 minutes-- 6 if you count the stare-down which (I shit you knot) includes scribbling on paper at each other.

    I did like Chuck. Worth a watch. Imdb will give you enough details on it. Basically a biography of a small-town boxer who gets his shot, struggles with real life. Easily endearing, I felt.

    Now, "White Gold" is good fun. Two seasons, six episodes each. Not a lot of time investment required, yet a good payoff.

    Shouldn't it be Whitish Gold? Granted being accurate doesn't flow off the tongue as gracefully.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    Out of any real British TV series this is one of the tops for me and the 5th season has now started

    I just finished watching Babylon 5. Never saw it before and many people (assume Star Trek fans) said it was bad. Had to give it a try. It wasn't great, but not bad. Better than most of the shit on TV today.

    With summer coming, thinking of watching Magnum P.I. (1980) and something else to mix things up. Might watch Oz, if I can finish downloading it (source very slow process, but works).

    I would make a suggestion, you could use some of the 21st century methods, and actually use the wasted aggravation time you endure to watch maybe another tv series

    You have the tools!, you have the knowledge!, what was that line in one of the Rocky Movies?? "Go For It"

    I do remember liking the original Magmum P.I, series, and downloaded the first series in minutes and started watching, and was bored and deleted it after a few eps. I also watched OZ , and really have no remembrance of the series, i am thinking that is not a good sign. And even stranger i still have memories of Cagney and Lacey, but that could also be because i have known one of the main actors personally in that series my whole life?? or it could be a Clint Eastwood thing..

    I will end and say do whatever floats your boat buddy.....

    Edit: Another oldie by goodie i added to my list

    I remember really liking some of Space: Above and Beyond when it came out. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112173/ To the point that I actually recorded it on the old VHS tape which I may still have.

    A couple of the guys that made The X-Files was responsible for it. It may or may not come off as hokey now. If you are looking for some oldish sci-fi you could do worse though.

    TV. Where the pieces are greater than the whole.

    Seriously, watch it again. A lot of the stuff from the early seasons will not have made sense until later in the story arc, but if you know what will happen, the early seasons are much more satisfying.

    Loved B5 back in the day. Probably should rewatch it. If only I had the time...

    I have nice copies of The Shield. Trying to coordinate a time to watch it with my stepfather (He's never seen it, I have). Will probably have to wait till next winter. I also trying to watch The Wire and Breaking Bad with him. He just recently retired and turns 80 in December. Trying to get him to watch something besides Law & Order, Blue Bloods and American Pickers.
