From the "Nostalgia Be Not Proud" Dept.:

Galactica: 1980

Yes, it's painful to watch.  But I can't part with it.

The second big 'bait and switch' advertising that I will not let go of.

The first was KING KONG (1976) - robot Kong used, big enough to straddle the Twin Towers. LIARS!!

GALACTICA: 1980 (which we had to see on a rented video cassette because no one was showing it on TV - which made this doubly annoying. We paid to watch that crap!). Come and watch the Cylons finally reach Earth and invade New York. LIARS!!

There is a difference between 'showing something that creates a desire to see the show or film' and just flat out lying and 'claiming you made the film that someone would really want to watch' when in reality you made the exact opposite.

addendum: REIGN OF FIRE - one Lynx helicopter is not multiple Apache helicopters. Although in this case I did still like the film.

Since I first saw it, I have thought that movie looks like I drew it.

I need to get back into SV. Since I work in IT, (though in "Silicon Alley"), some of the satire is a bit too on-point that it's hard for me to watch. Mike Judge did his homework (plus he was once a software developer).

Boxed set of the complete ROCKY & BULLWINKLE.

As funny as ever, but not one to marathon!

The sheer smarts of that show remain unparalleled
considering it was ostensibly made for children!

It seems AVENUE 5 has become my new WESTWORLD. Despite how much I am not enjoying it, I cannot stop watching.

LOST: Season 6 [2010]

I slowly worked my way, over the last few years, through Seasons 1-5... but within 10 minutes of revisiting the final Season 6, I thought, "NOPE... not putting myself through this again!"

My wife and I watched this one religiously back in the day, and she owns the DVD sets... but I doubt I'll ever really watch these again.  That final episode casts too long & dark of a shadow over the entire series.

On various recommendations I watched the two-part opener of 'space-western' Firefly. It's good enough that I think I will enjoy the rest of the series in smaller doses. There is a lot an inaugural story has to establish so I gave it some slack for that, but I'm expecting it to get better. I never saw it when it was originally aired because I don't think I even knew it was science fiction, although I had associated with a Piers Anthony horror-sf novel. The 4 DVD set includes some extras I haven't looked at either.
