I really like boy-girl movies that are true friends.

Halfway through my season 1 blu ray set of (the original) Magnum PI. Really enjoying revisiting this show.

Been rediscovering Watching, a late 80s/early 90s UK romantic comedy series. Liked it as a kid and teen but never got to see the last two seasons as Aussie TV, in their infinite wisdom, didn't bother with it, and never saw any of it again for 31 years until I imported the DVD set late last year. Really enjoyed it. Couldn't really remember it bar the main characters (and the massive cliffhanger at the end of season 5 that I was left with for 30 years!). Emma Wray was damn cute back in the day. :D

The Night Agent on Netflix. Pretty good so far. I find a lot of these shows these days really odd though, as I recognise almost none of the actors anymore. Only person I recognised in this was T2/XFiles' Robert Patrick (who is looking fecking old) who was killed off in episode 2... :lol:

X Files: Within/Without. Robert Patrick arrives as Agent John Doggett leading the hunt for Mulder in the wake of his disappearance. This two parter is a great opener to season 8, IMO the last great season of The X Files.

It was a great show because it left out the crazy people who see aliens everywhere and make up what they don't know.

I stopped watching the series because Everything about the USA ends up boring me because they always put patriotism in it. I was in the USA and they even put it in the children's parks.

The Bill: Deadline. David Tennant is a creepy weirdo who kidnaps a 15 year old girl in this double-length episode. Catching the creep takes CID no time at all, but there's no trace of the girl and evidence soon emerges he may have her locked in a refrigerated van somewhere... that's also airtight. This is a cracking good episode with the mid90s-early2000s awesome CID lineup (Beech! Boulton! Deakin! Meadows!). :D

My new TV can get more streamers than my other one could, so since I've ditched Netflix for the time being I thought I'd sign up and see what Disney+ has going for it. We'll see how it goes, but with the Fox catalogue it's already got a lot more than Netflix does for me (like Buffy!), plus Who is coming in November over here of course so it looks like I've no bloody option anyway (for a while anyhow)!

Started watching Werewolf By Night last night but turned it off. Felt too forced and mannered and couldn't get into it.

But I did watch the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which was enormous fun! Very funny and quite touching. I really enjoyed this! :D

Watched several old Wogan/Les Dawson Blankety Blank eps on YT lately. Surprisingly they're actually really funny.

Whither a DVD release? :D

Watched the first 3 eps of Star Trek: Picard season 3 last night. I have seen next to nothing of "NuTrek" (i.e the stuff made since 2017 by a different production company to the old ones), as most of it looks and sounds utter crud, but this got generally very good reviews and actually looked like Trek, so I thought I'd give it a go. Was going to get the Blu but it's insanely expensive at the mo' so I signed up to Paramount Plus for a month instead (I can always pick up the Blu later on when it goes down). It's very enjoyable so far. This is what people were wanting/expecting from the first seasons, basically a TNG reunion, and it's a lot of fun so far. :D
