Are there any shows that are helping you get through the strange days we're living through?
I like those reality competitions e.g. the Bake Off, Sewing Bee, Best Home Cook, Pottery Throwdown etc. And things like Bridgerton and Winx, which are total fantasy escapes from reality.
I also remembered Detectorists. Does anyone watch that? A nice, subtle series with nothing horrible happening.
"Dead Pixels" , E4 is brilliant. new series starts tonight
"Staged" on BBC iplayer also excellent
"Serpent" On BBC iplayer OK beautifully filmed, good acting
Stranger things, the Big Bang theory,Friends,the Mandolorian there my top ones.
I don't really watch a lot of TV shows, I mainly watch documentaries. I used to watch a lot of, Doctor Who, Star trek, Star Trek The next generation, and all the other Star treks, Still game, All the CSI…
Some of my favourite shows have interesting stories behind them.
Currently I'm watching the 1978 & 1980 original version of Battlestar Galactica on the horror channel.
Back in 1978/1980 I enjoyed the 1978 version of Battlestar Galactica. Then in 1980 the successor series was awful. The acting and dialogue was third rate.
Now in 2021 I'm seeing the 1980 version in a new light. The story lines were reasonable, they were just let down by the atrocious acting. And I'm pleased to discover from the internet that other people agree with me. Back in 1980, the series was prematurely cancelled because the viewing figures collapsed.
