    The Talking Pictures channel is running repeats of
    'Upstairs, Downstairs'. This was required viewing in my house in the 70's, though I was probably too young to be watching it!
    Must say, it holds up really well. Really enjoying it, and look forward to it every Sunday (think that's the day it was originally shown too?)
    Gordon Jackson plays the formidable character, Hudson, long before he became the tough head of CI5 George Cowley. A veritable who's who of British actors starred in 'Upstairs, Downstairs' a wonderful nostalgic trip down memory lane!

    I vaguely remember seeing this, but remember nothing from it. Same as The Onedin Line, which must have been around the same time. I was just a little kid, but you watched whatever was on back then.

    Mixing and matching the Original Magnum and the new version. Both
    enjoyable in different ways.

    I watched 'The Onedin Line (or "The One Din Line" as the late Terry Wogan used to call it!) but dont remember any of it!
    But watching 'Upstairs Downstairs' brought back a lot of memories, maybe because of the strong characters portrayed!

    FAWLTY TOWERS

    I bought the box with the complete series a while ago. It was funny in the 1970s, and it is funny now.

    Timeless classics, I have both series on DVD.

    I've always enjoyed what I've seen from this series. Can't recall when or which class it was, but I recall watching a good bit of this in school here in America, perhaps the teacher was a big fan of it, and loving it even then.

    Same here, and I rarely do that. Must be the funniest British show of all times.

    Eureka
    Series 5. Episode 13: Just Another Day

    The final episode. The recent events with the duplicates has spooked the DOD, so much that they have decided that the town has become too much of a liability to continue funding. No funding = no more Eureka. As the DOD removal vans move in, there's just time enough for one more distater, and one more time for Carter to throw himself selflessly into the path of disater.

    I won't rank every episode, just my top 10. So starting with an honourable mention....

    Jack Of All Trades (5, E5)

    And now the top 10....


    10. Just Another Day (S5, E13)

    09. InvincIble (S1, E5)

    08. Once In A Lifetime (S1, E12)

    07. Up In The Air (S4, E14)

    06. Noche de Sueños (S2, E6)

    05. I Do Over (S3, E4)

    04. Smarter Carter (S5, E9)

    03. H.O.U.S.E. Rules (S1, E11)

    02. Dr Nobel (S1, E6)

    01. Games People Play (S2, E4)

    I'm catching up on this series of Line of Duty: I'd forgotten how absolutely cracking it is.

    It got 15 million viewers consolidated for the first episode: the most recent one got 10 million in overnights- those are astonishing figures and great to see.

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

    I contemplated buying the boxset with the original series, but wasn t sure if it was as good as I remembered it from the reruns in the 70s. Then I found out that most episodes are available online. Started with the pilot episode from 1966. Don t think I have seen this one before, but it reminded me very much of another episode with a similar plot. Strange seeing this in colour, as I watched it in black and white. Same with many other shows. I loved this show as a kid, so looking forward to exploring it further. There is much I haven t seen.

    I love M:I they rerun it in the UK all the time though only the earlier seasons. They never seem to show any episodes after Paris's (Nimoy) first season (season 4).

    Just saw the last episode of season 1 of Invincible. That might have been the most brutal thing I have ever seen on a TV screen...

    I've read the first third of the comic's run and this is much more brutal than those were. Both because the animation makes the brutality more visceral and because they decided to add some things that really up the ante a whole lot

    I love Olyphant and Deadwood is my all time favorite TV series so I really need to get around to seeing this one in full.

    I really enjoyed it. Great stories, great dialogue and wonderful characters. If you like your protagonist to be likeable but morally ambiguous and your bad guys to also be likeable but not-so-morally ambiguous, then you'll have a blast.

    I'm a couple of episodes away from the last episode and although I am sort of enjoying it it is the real definition of a series which is way too long. There was a big inciting incident at the end of episode 1 and since then we've learned precisely nothing: that plot hasn't moved forward an inch. It's quite frustrating.

    Sounds a lot like Deadwood then, so it should be right up my alley. Thanks.

    I'm considering getting the DVD collection, but might wait a bit if the majority of the episodes are available online.

    Looks like a random collection, and some episodes are low quality. Just ordered the box myself.

    I see. Better have a look at the collection then. I see there's a recent Blu-ray release as well (apparently region free), but I could only find the box set available from retailers selling through Amazon.

    No, you are right about that. It is only the dvd set. That is the one I ordered.
