I came across my Buffy the Vampire Slayer boxset today. My current laptop doesn't have a DVD player so I need to find my external one tomorrow.

But first I'm going to finish season 14 of Criminal Minds tonight.

We watched some Perry Masons last year - the first 2 or 3 seasons are mostly based on books and not bad. I never liked Aaron Burr as Perry and really looking forward to the new Matthew Rhys version. When you throw in John Lithgow and Tatiana Maslany this could be the long LONG overdue PM fans deserve but never got.

I have all of DS9 recorded; just have to convince DW to watch.

If I can find Allo Allo I'll check it out. Tonight will be the last 3 eps of S2 of the Australian comedy No Activity - sort of a Peter Sellers meets Waiting for Godot...

Rewatching an old BBC series, Spooks. We used to watch it back in the day and it's still pretty good, albeit a bit dated (there was a scene where the main protagonist broke into a house to use their phone to call the office, which led to us having to explain to our youngest son that, no, people really didn't always have mobile phones!).

The early seasons were good. We watch a lot of the British series - inspectors Morse, Lewis, Lynley, Banks, Gently plus Shetland, Line of Duty, New Tricks, No Offence, Whitechapel, Broadchurch, Scott & Baily, Happy Valley, The Fall, Midsommer, Jack Irish & City Homicide from Austr. and Brokenwood from NZ - way too many good ones to name...

My son fixed me up with a streaming box a while ago, so I am currently working through every series of NCIS. have seen many of them, but owing to the scheduling here, they were never shown at the same time on the same night, so I missed quite a few of them! Now I can view them in order, at my leisure!

Today I found my DVDs of the first three seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I've hooked up my BluRay/DVD player so I'm set for a while.

I'm thinking of doing a Classic Film Week next week, where I watch a classic film each day.

On the list of films I definitely want to watch are:
  • The Godfather
  • M*A*S*H
  • Chinatown

Other possibilities:
  • Gone With The Wind
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • All The President's Men
  • Sunset Boulevard

I'm also going to look for one or two classic horror films to add.

Any suggestions are welcome, bonus points if it's on Netflix or I can rent it on Google Play Movies.

Watching Cheers as I'm sewing. I really dislike the early episodes with Diane. The only thing that made them watchable is the character of Coach.

All in all the show doesn't hold up very well, but it's background noise for me. I may watch Gilmore Girls again once I'm done with Cheers.

I can't watch anything new at the same time as I'm sewing, because I can't pay close enough attention.

PBS is running the Roosevelt documentary by Ken Burns, so we are recording that so my husband can watch it. I've watched it all the way through twice, but not recently. It's so good, and so interesting.

Finally decided to finish the Witcher Netflix series (I put off the last episode for too long). As a gamer and a book reader, I was rather disappointed by this season's finale. The only thing I'm actually happy with about this entire show is Henry Cavill as Geralt.

We love Barney Miller. It was so well done. The reoccurring characters especially.
