I tried to watch BOSTON LEGAL again a few months back and found the #metoo movement had left it irreparable tainted.

Been watching Smallville in random sporadic episodes on Hulu I really don't know why its like when I started watching General Hospital twenty odd years ago a weird gravity of pretty girls and drama  Ten years for Clark to put the suit on tho. Hard to believe it ran that long.

ENGRENAGES (or SPIRAL) season 7 on French DVD. A show past its peak (that was seasons 3 and 4), and this season felt less firmly-written than before, with episodes coming to a stop rather than building to a climax, and occasional scenes where the characters pause to remind one another of the plot. Still a great cast of characters, though.

EVIL ROY SLADE (1973)

TV movie evolved from a busted pilot. Surprised to note how many of my go-to lines I swiped from this one.

STAR TREK The Doomsday Machine

After a discussion of a new model of this beastie from Eaglemoss I surfed into the episode, coincidentally, on BBC America. I decided to pop in my DVD copy to avoid the aggravation of commercials.

The episode holds up well dramatically, but the special effects were not all that great to begin with. As noted in the Eaglemoss discussion, I have no problem with the stiffened windsock playing the Planet Killer, but the SFX crew seemed to have had a whole lot of trouble with maintaining scale. Plus, the phaser blasts are ridiculous.

Still, easily a top ten favorite.

Last to the party here, but we've been binging The Good Place. Currently in S2, and I love how well written this thing is. The actors are all wonderful (I'd watch Ted Danson in anything, and he really seems to be enjoying this role). Very clever and funny.

MOGULS AND MOVIE STARS - A HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD

"A sleepy little Los Angeles suburb called... Hollywood."

Three discs, seven hour long episodes, thorough enough that it begins circa 1855!

Recommended to anyone interested in how the "Dream Factory" (emphasis on FACTORY) created itself.

Watched the first two seasons of THE GOOD PLACE this week as I was away from the family. Really enjoyed it. Now need to wait for season three to turn up somewhere in the U.K.

So went on to REBOOT. There is a new version on Netflix - itís got two seasons. Atrocious doesnít even get close to how bad that series is. They did an episode with the original characters that just trashed them in that oh so clever way crap reboots do of the original.

Iím not watching that version. Iím watching the original series. Thereís more creativity in 30 seconds of the original that the entire two seasons of the new version

CHERNOBYL Episode 2

Suffers from the usual dramatization of events for which there are no living witnesses, but otherwise taught and chilling, with a superb cast and grim cinematography.

I watched the first episode but have been away this week so will catch up during the next week.

Reminded me of THREADS in its stark assessment of events. The scene where people were watching the fire at night while being 'snowed' on - heartbreaking
