Still Netflixing though the new TV season starts soon here in the States so imma have to make an effort to have a balance between Netflix and the DVR.

I just noticed the new Magnum series. I'll stick to the original.

I have been watching lots of Christmas specials. The last ones I watched were the Timothy Hutton Nero Wolfe mystery Christmas Party, and the Christmas episode of the classic 2000's reality series A Place in Greece.

I've been watching Colonel March of Scotland Yard - a 30 minute detective show with Boris Karloff. It's on the wonderful Talking Pictures channel.

I love Talking Pictures. They show lots of great old British movies, including some of the early Hammers and the 1964 Bristol-based musical Some People.

I watched a show called Extreme Couponing where Americans get a $1000 of free shopping with coupons. In the couponers' houses they have stores of things they have bought with coupons - such as 700 packs of noodles, 300 bottles of laundry liquid etc.

All I can think of when I see that show is my grandmother.If that show’d been on the air when she was raising 5 kids(one of them being my dad),she’d have been on it.

What I notice is that a lot of the families on that show are large..it’s a way for them to save money and maybe not have to go to the grocery store quite so much;there are also families whose church advises them to have 6 months of emergency food and supplies..

Then you have the people(and I admire this) that shop for food and donate it to food banks and shelters. :clap:

Robin's Nest is on Talking Pictures tv. It's quite good - not sure about the theme tune.

The US version was called Three's a Crowd.

Richard O'Sullivan who plays the lead character now lives in a retirement home for old actors, and was recently visited by Meghan Markle (or whatever she is called now).

I watched the third series of The League of Gentlemen. The bit with the man obsessed with Knight Rider is a classic.

Found myself accidentally signing up for Amazon Prime when I bought a Kindle book (Amazon recently changed their site design to make it easier for that to happen). Before I unsubscribe, I thought I'd watch Good Omens. Been too long since I read the book to comment on its faithfulness as an adaptation. My only real criticism is that the climactic moment came too early in the final episode, leaving about half an hour of padding at the end. David Tennant and Michael Sheen were wonderful, though.

I watched the first part of the BBC's War of the Worlds adaptation and found it quite boring and cheap looking. I'm not sure I'll bother with the other two parts.

I thought it was OK. I don't know if I would bother with it if it was 8 episodes, like His Dark Materials immediately before it, but I think I can stick with it for 3.

I watched some of episode two but didn't get to the end. I liked the fact that they did a period adaptation but it definitely could have been much better.

I really enjoyed the new version of Worzel Gummidge. I'm also enjoying Dracula by Gattis & Moffat.

Me too. It'll be interesting to see where they go with Dracula after that surprise twist at the end of episode 2.

I enjoyed the last part - but it was not a good as the period episodes. The Danish Dracula was very good.
