Been looking at some old episodes from the first couple of seasons. No wonder this was a hit. Instantly funny.

The first 5 seasons or so are absolutely amazing. So much great chemistry and flawless comic timing!

MOGULS AND MOVIE STARS (2010)

Third viewing of an excellent six part history of Hollywood, originally on TCM.

Re-watched the seven part Ric Burns/Steeplechase doc series on the history of New York City recently, narrated by David Ogden-Steirs. The only real downside was Giuliani and Trump popping up once each saying some inane thing about it's real estate being 'hot'. I wonder how much Trump had to bug someone to include him even if just for all of three seconds in this quality production?

There are so many channels with house-flipping tornado-hunting shark quintuplets stuff, and Me-tvs with slightly speeded-up sitcoms and westerns... why don't more re-show the quality non-fiction series of the past? Ascent Of Man, Connections, World At War, Cosmos... although I did see a lot of Dick Cavett on Decades, so that's something.

Terry Gilliam made a good series on the early days of moving pictures titled The Last Machine which I highly recommend if you can find it!

A few episodes from the sixth season of RENO 911.

Has anybody seen the seventh season?

I had no clue there was a 7th season.

I own the "complete" series on DVD but only goes thru 6 seasons.

Doug, there was a revival seventh season out this year on Quibi. They
actually renewed an eighth season in September, but Quibi has since
announced they would be shutting down.

BANACEK (S1)

Of all the Detective/Investigator shows of the seventies, this is one I've seen the least of. Probably because I'm not much of a Peppard fan, so of course he was written as arrogant as ever.
The way he somehow jumps to his conclusions to solve cases puts him in the "super genius" category!

For me, half the fun of these old shows is seeing the guest stars. One episode had Stafford Repp playing, what else, a police chief. Another episode had a young Margot Kidder make a Superman reference, 7 years before she played Lois!

FRIENDS (again)

At her request, introducing a 30-something friend to the series. Interesting to note her reactions to these characters who are close to her age. She enjoys their antics, but finds them all "self-obsessed".

Fair assessment, I guess!

I did like the one where a football player vanished from beneath a pile of other players!
