She most certainly will.
The better sci fi sequel that came out in 2005!

Definitely improves beyond that opener. The episode 'Out
of Gas' was my favourite.

Looking forward to watching more when I make the time. Serenity too eventually, thanks for the feedback. :^)

Well, finished the 1st season of THE RIFLEMAN.
A mere 40 episodes long! That's enough for about 3 seasons nowadays.
They took it easy for season 2 and dialed it back to 36 episodes.

Rather late on this one but I finally got around to watching Silicon Valley just
finished S4

Charming if a little redundant at times probably another show that wasn't
meant to be binged.

THE NIGHT STRANGLER (1973)

Darren McGavin in a sequel to the successful NIGHT STALKER TV movie. Very, VERY Seventies. Ultimately these served as the “pilots” for the short lived series.

(Shows like this always have one fairly major stumbling block: they are set in a reality in which the supernatural is shown repeatedly to be real, yet those who believe are still crackpots—and a minority!)

THE NEW POPE

Okay, not actually watching, so a question for those who are: is there any explanation of John Malkovich’s decidedly acrobatic “accent”?

Those Dan Curtis Night Stalker tv movies along, with Spielberg's Duel, were genuinely the highlight of '70s tv! Everyone who saw them remembered them pretty vividly, and I remember kids at school talking about both (and the ones who'd missed them were left out). I wonder how many people were disappointed though who saw The Night Strangler and then did the Seattle underground tour... :^D

Watched episode 4 of Firefly (and some extras) and it's really taking off now! The name Serenity is given some meaning in this 'ghost ship' story. Apparently when they originally broadcast the show they started with episode 3, the train job one being they thought the two part pilot was not fast-paced enough. That two-parter may've made more sense inserted later on as a sort of big flashback, but I can't say now having watched it first. I think possibly if the interior of the ship were more visually interesting as well as functional that might've helped; it's sort of Alien's Nostromo on a budget without half the character it had. I'd say the Red Dwarf might even have had more personality. Everything else being top-notch I had to find the weakest link, especially as the show is titled after the ship (and the movie the specific Firefly ship's name).

Called up this week’s edition of AVENUE 5 OnDemand and was immediately reminded why I have promised myself l’m not going to do that any more. Switched off after about forty seconds.

Left with the question of how this cast was assembled. Were they not allowed to see the scripts?
