My new program to binge-watch is The Avengers. The real Avengers, with John Steed and Emma Peel, not the super-hero one from Marvel.

I discovered it while searching through programs on my Roku box. It's on a free channel called TubiTV. The commercials are sort of annoying, but worth it to see a classic TV series. They have the two series prior to Diana Rigg joining the cast, and the one series after she left. I'm nearly finished with the first Rigg series (in B&W). Fun stuff.

    I binge watched the 3rd season of Broadchurch the other day -- I liked it better than the second season; I'd say it was as good as the first season. I wish they'd continue it now that Alec and Ellie are becoming a bit less antagonistic toward each other, but I think I heard that it's over. More's the pity. :(

    I loved in the beginning of the second season of Outlander (set in 1968), they opened with a scene from The Avengers. I'll have to look for that channel.

    Been watching Star Trek Discovery since it aired. Love it, despite it being quite different to the usual Trek offerings

    Also been binge-watching Brooklyn 99

    Binge watching Kingdom. I've watched it all before (3 seasons) and they left the last episode hanging. I mean, Stephen Fry, Tony Slattery, Celia Imrie ... why would they cancel it?

    Oh man... I've been sucked into Tin Star on Amazon Prime.  It's sooo good, but I have to do a brain bleach afterwards with WKRP in Cincinnati and The Tick in order to sleep.

    Network budget cuts, according to the info I got. The series was just too expensive, although it didn't seem to have any unusual features that would require a lot of money. Maybe salaries.

    I enjoyed it a lot.

    I imagine you're right about the salaries. Too bad.

    This week I binge-watched the whole 14th series of the British comedy quiz show QI on Britbox. New shows will show up a day or so after they air in the UK. I don't quite understand why I like this show so much considering it's exceptionally non-PC, and contains a lot of vulgarities and explicit material (something which I normally would not watch). Last night I laughed so hard there were tears running down my face. I had to rewind the stream to pick up what I missed while laughing.

    It's Stephen Fry. Is he still the host?

    No, he stepped down two years ago after hosting the show for 13 years. The new quiz-master is Sandi Toksvig, who was one of the 'contestants' many times. She does really well at it, with a similar approach and delivery as Fry. I would have thought they would have a problem finding someone with the erudition and dry wit of Fry, but they did it. Prep work may explain the seemingly wide-range of knowledge. Alan Davies is still there as one of the driving forces of the show.

    I used to go to all the local ice shows and watched every one on T V that I could find. Then Sergei Grinkov died and I just lost interest. I used to know them all. Now I don't know any of them. Sad.

    OH man... I've been sucked into Chance on Hulu starring Hugh Laurie.  The next episode doesn't come out until tomorrow and I'm D.Y.I.N.G.  It's one of those series that makes me wonder what the characters have gotten up to while I've been away.  SO addicting.

    There's a guy on Youtube who does video game play-throughs that I end up enjoying in spite of his often (usually?) sophomoric humor and vulgar language -- and the fact that I don't even play any video games. Maybe it's his Swedish accent that makes it work?  8)

    I've just finished an epic binge of Stargate, from the original movie, through to the final episode of Stargate Universe.
    Good times.

    I watch a lot of serial thrillers on Netflix. At the minute I'm watching "Midsommer Murders". I've only seen it about five or so times already.

    Always well-worth re-watching.

    Yes, indeed. I've watched a dozen or so assorted Midsomer Murders eps in the last several week, as there is little else interesting to watch, especially on network TV.

    This week, I watched all 10 available eps of The Coroner on Britbox, and am making my way through the second season of the police procedural series Scott & Bailey (also BritBox) although my interest is waning as it becomes more like a soap opera than a crime show.
