    Perry Mason

    @junemeatcleaver, Is the show available on Prime without CBS All Access? About a month ago I watched one earl6y episode of Perry on Prime but when I tried to watch another I was asked to join All Access. Has that changed? I do watch the show very often via METV but it would be great to stream it without commercials. thanks ETA I just checked Prime and Seasons 1 - 5 are available, thanks, great news!
  2. Oh, The Fugitive. I just pulled out my Season Two DVD the other night. For a show that was so very popular in its day - the finale, way before the VHS or DVD era, set some kind of viewership record - it’s rather amazingly absent from any channel or streaming service. What a great example of episodic, (mostly) black and white TV Noir, with fine guest actors/characters along the way and so well played by David Janssen and Barry Morse. I wonder if the lack of showings has anything to do with the downbeat subject matter, Dr Kimble running from the threat of execution and searching for the one armed man. Maybe people prefer to revisit self contained stories? Maybe the four Acts and Epilogue format is too hard to cut for syndication? But it was such an excellent show that I really think holds up and works really well in the TV format.

    S07.E09: On the Scent

    Thanks for the explanation @shapeshifter, I think I will definitely be rewatching this one to catch all the things I didn’t figure out or catch at first!

    S07.E09: On the Scent

    I missed the Clyde reference, I will have to rewatch with the captions on! I’m also not totally clear as to who did what in the end - so the cartel’s lawyer dressed as the victim while her brother stole Ollie and committed the murder? I did laugh early on at hearing Bell refer to the guy as “this knucklehead”, before he turned out to be the killer and not just a phone thief. The B plot about the DNA was interesting with everyone involved. I wonder how they will wrap up this Odin plot in the relatively few episodes they have left. I agree that it’s good that Joan figured out that Sherlock was lying (albeit in an attempt to protect her), and he agreed not to do it again.

    Thanks @LisaM, oddly they mentioned the Vicar being away in Africa in the last episode but not previously I don’t think? Odd. Acorn TV has a feature where they interview the cast and they are charming.

    Honestly Ive been generally quite calm watching Roger ever since he won his eighth Wimbledon and then his 20th Slam in Australia, its an amazing level of accomplishment no matter what, but those two match points on his serve....that has to really hurt. But it happens to even the greatest I guess. By the way I am still not thrilled with the introduction of the 12-all tiebreak, aka the John Isner rule. I would rather have seen them play it out even though we would probably still all be watching at this moment.

    Thanks! I recommend watching Hsieh for anyone who hasn’t seen her, she has an amazing ability to confound her opponents with her unique style.

    I’m also happy for Simona, it wasn’t that long ago that she had lost her first 3 major finals and had to prove that she had what it takes, and I so hate it when the sports media and fans do that to a player, especially in an individual sport like tennis. She just was amazing. I was hoping that ESPN would show the women’s doubles final featuring the wildly unpredictable Hsieh Su-wei, but it hasn't begun so I guess not. Maybe it will be replayed somewhere.

    I didnt see the whole thing live, I admit, because much as I love Roger, live matches just get so tense that sometimes its just easier for me these days to watch on tape. I did see him win that first set tiebreaker which was clearly huge. I honestly didn't expect to see Roger in another Wimbledon final, so if he could possibly find a way to win it I'd be thrilled for him.
  10. Dobie Gillis is available on Amazon Prime. I find it hilarious. Route 66 is also on prime, and I believe Naked City though I haven’t watched it. I thought I had at least heard of all these shows but Men in Space? I wonder if it’s on Youtube, now I’m curious. In regard to libraries, the New York Public Library was participating in a great free streaming service called Kanopy, but I received an email that the NYPL dropped out of it as of July 1st.
  11. I discovered Corner Gas while vacationing in Newfoundland years ago (though I think it was being broadcasted from Halifax) and I just love it. It's a brilliant comedy. There are certain episodes - Blog River, in which slacker extraordinaire Hank decides to impart his ramblings to Dog River online, makes me laugh out loud every single time. I actually bought all the DVDs from Amazon Canada, and there is also a follow up movie which I haven't seen. Sadly, Janet Wright, who played Brent's mother, has passed away since the show ended.
  12. I saw both of those also, they are excellent. There was another fine Route 66 I saw on Prime, where it's revealed that Buzz never knew his mother, and they run into a look alike rural family and on this evidence think they are going to be able to track her down and reunite them. It has quite a twist ending.

    Agatha Raisin

    I just started watching this show while I was on vacation in Ireland on a channel called Pick. I do enjoy it overall though the first show I watched, The Wellspring of Death, seemed to me to be the most obvious telegraphing of whodunit that I can ever remember seeing. but I kept watching for the cast and the charm. I do feel that as the show goes on the chemistry becomes more enjoyable among the regulars, especially for instance in The Witch of Wyckhaddon where Agatha is joined by James, Gemma, Bill and Roy to sort out the spooky goings on. I enjoy Bill and the actor who plays him a lot, though I wonder if they will ever match him up with Gemma for good, maybe when the show ends. Can anyone explain why Sarah is a regular in Season 2? Nothing against the actress or character per se, but isn't she the minister's wife? And why haven't they shown her husband? Did I miss something? It's hard for me to follow some of the accents sometimes. Anyway, it's fun TV for mainly light viewing, and I am glad they are making a Season 3.
  14. Ha, I guess I could do that Wendy :). I've toyed with something like January 1, 1900 just to see if they'd notice.
  15. By the way, I hope this isn't too off topic, but Route 66 is free if you have Amazon Prime (included with Prime Video). As are all seasons of Dobie Gillis. I thought for one great moment that Prime was going to give us all of Perry Mason as well, but it was just a tease! They give you one free episode, then the rest requires CBS All Access which I will not subscribe to (my name and date of birth CBS? I don't think so).
