MASH Season 6, disc 1 - "Fade Out, Fade In", the first episode with Charles Emerson Winchester. 

Last Saturday night I got home after a two week workshop where I had no access to TV.  My first TV was to watch the end of MASH season five, including one of my favorites, "Movie Tonight".  It's the one where Potter gets a print of "My Darling Clementine" for the camp to watch.  The print keeps breaking, and the camp has to entertain themselves while Klinger fixes the film.  I had an audio tape of that episode as a kid which I recorded by putting a mic up to the speaker.  I still have certain dialogue committed to memory.  When some kids were memorizing song lyrics, I was listening to MASH before bed and accidentally memorizing dialogue.

I watched a few episodes on disc 2 of season 3 of "Corner Gas".  It's a fun show, great dialogue.

NCIS - Season 1

I really like how the characterizations were established in the pilot and have basically not wavered since. Gibbs may have gotten a bit more stoic over the course of seven seasons, but he was pretty stoic in the beginning. Other than that, the characters are still as presented from the get-go. These are characters I care about, well-scripted and well-acted. And Gibbs is the role Mark Harmon has been waiting his whole life to play.

And my Dad likes the show. We finally have something to talk about.

I finished the last disc of season 3 of "Corner Gas".  A very solid season.  Then I watched a few episodes from season 2 of "Chuck". The episode "Chuck vs the Seduction" with John Larroquette is a definite highlight.

Re-watching Justice League Unlimited with the kids.  Man, we love that series!  The writing is way sharper than so many "grown-up" shows.

I agree, Tony.  The episode "Divided We Fall" has the great scene in which Flash battles Luthor/Brainiac.  Great musical score and really personifies the heroism of Flash.  Animation seems to be able to handle the essence of what makes these characters great far better than the live-action versions.

ANASTASIA: THE MYSTERY OF ANNA, a 2-part TV movie from the 80s.  Amy Irving played Anna Anderson, who claimed to be the daughter of the last Russian Czar; Omar Shariff and Claire Bloom played Nicholas and Alexandra; and Rex Harrison in what I believe was his last performance.

Good drama, and well produced -- but not much of a "mystery" any more, since DNA has proven conclusively that Anderson was not a Romanov.

TRIGUN, Disc 1 - My kids, especially my daughter, have been getting more and more into anime. This was a fun watch for us.

DAMAGES, season two, disc one.  This is turning out to be the best show I barely heard of.

"Wiseguy - The Collector's Edition", Season Four, Disc Two.  The Show remains as addictive as ever; very hard to turn off once I start watching.

I've gone through several of the discs to season 1 of "Sgt. Bilko", great example of classic humor.

Finished DAMAGES season two.  I enjoyed it very much, but not as much as season one.  The second season spent too much time on the first season's leftovers -- making its own plotline feel like an afterthought too often.

The third season, Thom, is fantastic. Martin Short & Lily Tomlin are fantastic.

FRINGE Season 2: FRINGE and I had a sit-down, and now we have an understanding. It's not X-FILES and never will be. It's actually HEROES done right, and now that I realize that, what started out as a passing interest in Season 1 became a steady flirtation early in Season 2, culminating in a serious courtship by the final 3 episodes, some of the most enjoyable 3 hours of any genre show I've seen in a long time. 

Casting Leonard Nimoy was a masterstroke, and the woefully underrated John Noble is quietly developing Walter Bishop into one of the more memorable characters in genre television. Like HEROES, this series borrows heavily from comics, but unlike that show, the result doesn't just feel like the same stuff minus the fun. Can't wait for Season 3.

In honor of Lucille Ball's birthday, two episodes from I LOVE LUCY's third season.  "Lucy and Ethel Buy the Same Dress" -- and promptly shred each others' on stage -- and "Lucy Tells the Truth" -- which reveals that Lucy Ricardo had the same birthday as Ball, only 10 years younger.

Josh got me thinking about WISEGUY. Pulled out Season 1 and started watching. Love the Sonny Steelgrave storyline.

TIN MAN - despite initial reservations, I got hooked and watched it in
one sitting. Might watch it again. It's a lot of what I hoped Burton's
Alice wouldve been. Think Narnia meets Twin Peaks!

SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES.  I haven't really cared for most of the DC direct to disc movies, but this one was just awful.  Wretched animation, horrible character designs (all the men look like He-Men action figures), and a ludicrous story.  Only the familiar voices of Conroy and Daly added any merit.
