Binge-watching? (Aug 2021 Edition)

Speaking of retro, we have been doing a 1960's movie and TV fest.

We started with Cold War/espionage films like Fail Safe, Dr. Strangelove, Our Man Flint, In Like Flint and Casino Royale. We included the Austin Powers trilogy (even though they aren't 60's films).

We just finished up the three seasons of Steve Canyon (1958-1959) - starring Dean Fredericks as an Air Force Lt. Colonel solving mysteries. DH liked all the stock footage of 1960's aircraft. The set included all the old commercials, including ads for cigarettes.

Last night, we started Route 66 (1960-1964) starring George Maharis and Marty Milner.

I get a huge kick out of naming all the many guest stars. Some of whom were unknowns getting their first breaks.

I just finished bingeing Grimm on Prime. I started it when it originally aired on network tv, but got behind after two seasons and never restarted. Nice to finally know how it ended, lol.

Now I'm watching Eureka, also on Prime.

Currently making my way through Person of Interest, but took a break to watch some Star Trek: Lower Decks.

I think Lower Decks is great, but the pacing is a bit too fast for me. Wish they'd slow down the dialogue a bit.

I recently discovered My Wife & Kids on Hulu, which ran from 2001 - 2005. It is hilarious!!

Person of Interest is an all-time, top 5 favorite TV show of mine. I rewatch it about once a year.

I am currently binging The Ultimate Fighter series. I'm almost done with Season 1. I forgot about a lot of those guys that were around back then. I'm trying to reignite my MMA obsession. It was one of the things I really loved, but I lost it for a while. I think rewatching this show and some old UFC fights will get me back there I found the UFC channel on Roku and the Fight Pass is only $10 a month and you can watch pretty much every season of TUF and any previous fight that you can imagine!

(Hides face in shame) I'm watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm on season 5.
Yes, I've watched 4 seasons since late July when I started watching it again.

I'll move onto the other housewives when I'm done.
I just want mindless stupid tv I don't have to pay much attention to and that keeps my mind off (waves hands around) all this crap

I also watch mindless TV like the Real Housewives. I watch 90 Day Fiance and Married at First Sight, too.

I binge-watched, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I enjoyed it.
