What's on TV?

Recommended Posts

Well? What show's been on the tube lately at your house?

 

 

 

I've been watching the first season of The Fall Guy. Had a strange attachment to it when I was a very wee lad. Like, prior to preschool. and I guess I've figured out why: There're some crazily nonsensical stuff happening in this show. And it's really fun. In the second episode, Lee Majors jumped out of one airplane, sans parachute, in order to purposefully land on another plane. As a stunt preview for a movie producer.

 

Then he did it again at the end of the episode.

 

Plus Lee Majors sings the theme song. I need to call my dad to find out if Lee Majors really was the Walker-era Chuck Norris of the 80s.

 

Footnote: I'm in love with Heather Thomas. :wub:

I've been catching up on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."

 

...

 

Oh, come on, is anyone really surprised?

On the actual TV?

 

Judge Judy, lots and lots of Judge Judy.

My housemate is pretty much addicted to the show, and there's like a dozen channels showing it.

 

What I'm watching, various cartoons and anime.

Glad to see Star vs. the Forces of Evil is finally starting to develop something approaching a plot, and the latest episode of School Live! gave me a good kick in the feels (despite knowing it was coming).

 

Oh, and Blakes Seven. I'd forgotten how good a show it was, despite its lousy 70's sfx budget.

Oh man, I watch too much TV.

 

TMNT, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, Humans and The Strain.

Teen Wolf and The Whispers.

Zoo, Rizzoli & Isles and Proof (I was watching Scream, but I've fallen behind on it).

Wednesdays are pretty sparse, the occasional episode of Nova.

Under the Dome and Dominion.

Defiance, Killjoys and Dark Matter.

 

And this is summertime when the TV pickings are really thin.

Wife has become addicted to Snapped and The First 48, both real life murder investigations.

 

I think she's studying up for my eventual demise for the insurance money.

 

...

 

And for the record, in case something does happen to me (knock on wood), that was a joke.

Not much lately. Quite a bit of TV listening going on of whatever show my husband is currently watching on the computer. So, several episodes of curb your enthusiasm, x-files, the office. I watched 2 recorded episodes of Mythbusters earlier this week. Soon[tm] Fear the Walking Dead, think that starts on Monday. Then prolly not much else until The Walking Dead and hockey season. Haven't been all that into TV lately.

A stack of t-shirts. TV is dead. 

 

Finally finished last season of Agents of Shield.  Enjoying the Miss Fisher Mysteries and the Jeremy Brett episodes of Sherlock Holmes along with assorted Netflix dvd movies.

Lately, it's been Burn Notice and House. Before that it was Criminal Minds and Law & Order: SVU, but I've seen every rerun now.

Went through a long period where I simply watched NO TV, but Berni's turned me on to some good stuff.

Heather Locklear costarred on TJ Hooker with William Shatner... and to this day, refuses to talk about the man. I sure wonder what's up with that.

Just finished catching up with John Oliver myself Pingo! So good!! Also finally finished The Legend of Korra, which was spectacular.

 

On Netflix:

Sense8 (takes a couple episodes to get going, but SO GOOD)

Bojack Horseman (way better than I expected)

Farscape (never actually watched it when it was on)
