What are you watching?

Out of sheer boredom on the plane home, I watched an episode of Chopped, then two episodes of The Addam's Family and to end it, The Blues Brothers. And still there was over 4 hours of flight left!!!

no I mean they revamped Seed of Destruction as a series one story, titles etc? I have the boxset but my daughter stole my bluray player!

That is me being a dimbo. I never remember titles of episodes! Angry

you can be forgiven...great song that too. Horse, great group. Me watch the Blob....

I've been mostly watching comedies of late. Still Open All Hours and Upstart Crow. The latter is written by Ben Elton and stars David Mitchell as William Shakespeare. Very reminiscent of Blackadder II

Licence to Kill, Dalton is the closest to Flemings Bond. OHMSS still the best though

Absolutely agree. I sometimes wonder how they can put Licence to Kill on a Sunday afternoon because it is one of the most violent Bond movies, but I prefer Mr Dalton to Sir Roger Moore. As to the latest incarnations....I saw a programme recently in which the films were discussed and the presenters said that they could watch the earlier films again and again, but not so the latest ones.
I agree.
I can watch OHMSS every time. It was my first Bond movie at the cinema in 1969 and I also have the LP soundtrack as well as the CD.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Agreed. Always thought Dalton was poorly served by the scripts. And always wondered how Lazenby would have done in further Bond films once he had got over his big headedness.

OHMSS is the most human of the films. Great action with great feeling. Rigg was the best Bond girl along with fellow Avenger Honor Blackman.

Talking of Diana Rigg, I have just started season 5 of The Avengers. Now in colour.

This season was my introduction to The Avengers. It was repeated on Channel 4 in the 90s when I was at university. It says something that a bunch of men in their early 20s were rushing home to watch a woman from the 1960s rather than hit the pubs like other students do!!

I was watching with them because I am a sci-fi/fantasy nerd Pfft

Italian gore movies from the 1970s and 1980s such as Lucio Fulci's Zombie (AKA Zombi 2 in Italy to capitalise on the success of Dawn of the Dead, which is known in Italy as Zombi), The in-name-only sequel Zombi 3, Lamberto Bava's cult classic Demons and After Death (AKA Zombi 4).

agree one spare part and sue, think Lazenbys inexperience actually adds to his vulnerable portrayal, wonder if its true that Savalas needled him deliberately to get some antagonism going?
Dalton is a superb actor, and I do visualise him now when reading the novels. Fleming was a superb descriptive writer, the sequence where le Chiffre is shot in Casino, and the gypsy/mercenary fight in FRWL (just after the BOOM- explosion!) Sheer poetry.
I have the original french coat of arms poster for OHMSS, the one on the lp and cd, prefer it to the western ones used

After this conversation I noticed Licence to Kill was on tv so I tuned in for a short while...Dalton brilliant, song by Gladys Knight brilliant, everything else rubbish mostly. What a damn shame! I know they had wanted Brosnan then and he couldn't get out of his Remington Steel contract but all the same...Living Daylights was not bad, something to build on. Instead we got this...Dalton has always been underrated but the Bond people showed him no respect at all. Sad

Agreed. And most of the royalties for the Gladys Knight theme went to John Barry, as they stated the riff was too similar to Goldfinger...

Just started our Game Of Thrones rewatch.

67 episodes to get through between now and the S8 premiere. Two per week should about do it.

Surprised at how quickly it sucked me right back in, considering I'm seeing S1 for the third time.

Catching up with Doctor Who, which I missed while I was away...

Good idea! I would like to do one of those myself. I am rewatching The Gilmore Girls. Just love that series. Also Friends

The Mahabharata mini series by Peter Brook. I watched it about 30 years ago on German TV and was utterly fascinated. For years, I wanted to see it again, and this year, I finally found the DVD! I am still utterly fascinated, and with all the scenes set in quarries, this version also has a certain B7 vibe ...

You rang a bell for me. I thought I had seen some but not all of this so I checked it out on youtube...as you do...got it saved. Watching the opening scenes just drew me in. I can see why you are fascinated with it. The music is beautiful besides the storytelling. Thanks for the reminder Hugbot! Grin

The classic Red Dwarf episode Gunmen of the Apocalypse, which aired 25 years ago today and is considered to be the definitive episode of Season 6 as well as one of the show's best combinations of humour, sci-fi, action and drama.

Star Trek: The Animated Series.
I am guessing this was their attempt to get the series picked up after it got cancelled. All the original voices of Shatner, Nimoy, Nichols, Sulu, everyone and the episodes are half the length of a typical episode, as is often the case with cartoons. Interesting animation. Feels like Star Trek... mostly. They go a little wild though. In one episode they find Lucifer, think he's a hell of a great guy, party down with Asmodeus and the Lightbringer and basically The Federation makes contact with a witch demon hell world and come to realize that, you know, the devil and king of the demons and the rest really got a pretty bad rap and are overall okay blokes.
