1 TV Shows You're Watching on Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:35 am

The pilot of the late 70s/early 80s The Incredible Hulk. Dr David Banner (the great Bill Bixby) is conducting scientific research involving unnatural and seemingly impossible feats of strength on the part of ordinary people during times of crisis, research he's a little too personally invested in due to his failure to rescue his late wife from a horrific car wreck. When he stumbles onto a connection between the incidents and sun spots/gamma rays, he decides to subject himself to an experiment, but unbeknownst to him ends up blasting himself with a couple of million more rays than he intended. Nothing seems to have changed at first, but when he gets angry... This is an excellent feature-length first episode of this classic show, really smart, really well acted and really well directed. The first two times he transforms are actually still pretty scary! Great stuff that stands up really well. flower

Inside no. 9 started a new series on Tuesday. It wasn't the funniest episode but it had some good laughs and a great twist.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia only has a couple of episodes left of the current season. It's no longer at the point where every episode is gold, but this season hasn't had any stinkers and has given us at least 2 classics so far. Not bad for a show in its 12th season. Seasons 13 and 14 were already ordered last year. cheers

A lot of anime as usual so I won't get into that haha.

I am also watching the new season of It's Always Sunny! The highlight for me so far of the season was Scott Bakula singing "ZIGGYYYYYYYYY"  LOL Though I realize there were definitely funnier moments that but, as a Quantum Leap fan that's made my fucking year.

I've just finished the second to last episode of the first season of Netflix's "The Crown" which, sorry, I'm going to have to fall in line with the popular opinion (to people who've watched the show, anyway) and agree that it was an amazing episode.

In terms of writing (because I realize Lithgow is probably not the perfect Churchill), the Winston Churchill we get in The Crown (especially the 'Assassins' episode) is the Winston Churchill I would have much rather we got in Doctor Who instead of the Comedy Sketch Winston Churchill we got.

I'm about to go watch the last episode.

Westworld is quite good. Brilliant performance from Sir Antohny Hopkins...though I can only ever remember one of the character's names (Deloris), so far the mystery of Peter Weller's character searching for a maze, the hooker retaining the memory of the outside world, and Deloris' conversations with her maker (and becoming more aware of her routine in the park) have really captivated me.

The new MacGuyver is formulaic, yet fun. Been enjoying that lately.

I did enjoy the episode but I thought it was a little too different to be the first episode of the season, they should have had a couple of ordinary episodes before throwing us into that.

I thought the latest episode was solid but they could have had a classic on their hands with the premise, it should have been up there with the season 3-8 episodes. I still laughed out loud and hard when Frank started eating the "anthrax".

"It's not anthrax by the way, it's just icing sugar-oh he's already eating it."

The new Jonathan Creek special. Well that was definitely a vast improvement on the awful last series. I'm still unconvinced by his new lifestyle and wife but at least the story was more like the Gothic mystery of old Creek than... whatever the hell series 5 was trying to do.

The Flash 2010 series.

Brilliant adaptation. The stand out of the show is definitely Tom Cavannagh. He is amazing as Wells. I'd say he is as well cast in that role as Paul Darrow was as Avon, or James Marsters was as Spike.

Like those two he's the kind of outsider of the group who is a bit ruthless, and on the one hand you hope he won't be a villain because you like him and want him around, but on the other you like him so much because he is a bastard.

I also love the homages to the 90's show. Not only do they use a lot of the same actors. (Mark Hamill is the Trickster again, and John Wesley Shipp who played the original Flash plays his dad in this series). But they actually make it take place in an alternate universe to the 90's one.

In a season 2 episode when the Flash is travelling through the multiverse we see glimpses of various other realities and one of them is the show the 90's universe took place on.

John Wesley Shipp played Dawson's dad on Dawson's Creek. It always made me laugh when The Dawson Files blog reviewed it they would just refer to Dawson as "Son of Flash". LOL

The first time I've heard the term "femiNazi" on mainstream television - Elementary (Sherlock referring to a dog that hates men). LOL

I've still not seen Elementary after the pilot, which I didn't enjoy. I recently saw it's on its fifth season. Where does the time go?

Somewhere very fast these days. Glad, though, I do like getting into a show I know has a good long run ahead of it.

The Incredible Hulk: Death in the Family. Presumed dead, Dr David Banner is on the run, trying to find a way to control the monster within him. Encountering a young girl on the road, he steps in to help when she collapses and takes her home, only to become very concerned when witnessing some decidedly dodgy "medicine" being given to her by a decidedly dodgy nurse. His concerns only deepen when he realises she's a wealthy heiress whose father died in suspicious circumstances... The second episode of the series is another feature-length one, and again really entertaining. There's a Hulk vs Brown Bear moment that has to be seen to be believed! Laughing

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia maybe be losing Dennis. http://www.avclub.com/article/glenn-howerton-might-be-done-its-always-sunny-phil-251753

Spoiler:
Season 12 ended with him revealing he had a son after The Gang Beats Boggs and leaving the gang and the bar to live with his family in North Dakota.

All the scenes with David Tennant in are good, it's worth watching for him alone.

Spoiler:
I don't fancy my chances with season 2.

Miss Marple: A Caribbean Mystery. Miss Marple (the great Joan Hickson) is on holiday in the Caribbean, but murder's never far behind her. When a retired old dies of an apparent heart attack, Miss Marple smells a rat, and she's not the only one. Donald Pleasance nearly steals the show as a cantankerous but sly old rich guy who lends his assistance to Miss Marple in this terrific story (he calls her a "saucy old mare" at one point, though not to her face lol!).

I'm still only on the first season of Mighty Morphin on Netflix. Crying or Very sad I took a break to watch RPM and only watched about 4 episodes of that.

Anyone remember Scrubs? I just saw a meme on FB. God that was good.

Own all 9 seasons of Scrubs on DVD. I never saw the 9th season on tv, did they have different titles in the UK than in America or was it changed for the DVD? I remember a lot of criticism online that I didn't get. It wasn't as good as the others but it was still funny. It seems people would have had a better opinion of it if it were a spin-off but it was? It's called Scrubs: Med School in the titles.

Dickensian. Great series all around, great production values, performances. Just a shame it won't get a second series.

The Saint: The Convenient Monster. Simon Templar is in Scotland when a dog is found crushed to death near some gigantic footprints on the shores of Loch Ness. The conclusion is obvious but as more evidence begins to be found, Simon begins to wonder if the "monster" isn't being used as a convenient cover for a planned upcoming murder...Given how much I love Uncle Rog as James Bond, as well as other 60s shows like The Avengers, I don't know why it's taken me so long to get to this, I'm really enjoying it. This is a great episode too, lots of fun.

Just finished Stranger Things. I don't understand the buzz around it, it was okay, nothing more. I'll watch season 2 when that comes out but I doubt I'll ever watch an episode more than once.

The Incredible Hulk: Guilt, Models & Murder. David awakes from a Hulk-out to find a trashed apartment and a dead woman. Horrified by the possibility that his fury-driven alter ego may have crossed the line and taken a life, David begins to investigate the dead woman, a fashion model, and soon gets into hot water... Another strong episode featuring a star guest appearance from none other than Jeremy Brett!
