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!!

I absolutely loved both those shows.


I am watching The Food That Built America with a chef friend of mine.

My husband and I have been bingeing The Americans on Prime (originally ran on FX from like '13 to '18). It's set in the early '80s and is about Soviet spies who infiltrate the US and pose as a suburban married couple. Really riveting, especially for folks who remember the early '80s very well and enjoy seeing callbacks to the fashion and pop culture.
