Here's a branch of a very tall shrub in the yard n it's altered cousin, which I really like. We're having such good temps again it's tough to imagine what mid-November is usually like.
So many movies are coming out now I want to see, I wish I had more bux to see them all. There's a new Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides
out on DVD, The Last Harry Potter DVD installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II
, n also a new Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn Part I
in the theatres. I particulary enjoy movie series.
They remind me of how watching TV shows used to be like when I was growing up- I'm very bored with basic channel pickings, n miss the ongoing stories told in The Brady Bunch, n Happy Days. MASH, Taxi, Alf, ER, these are the shows that made sense to me n grabbed my attention. Who could forget how hilarious Three's Company and One Day At a Time were to see? I also miss the X-files n Star Trek spin-offs.
But all I get to see these days are re-hashed Law & Orders, no match to the old Hill Street Blues, or Forenic shows a shadow of Quincy MD with Jack Klugman. Then we had good Western series with Little House on the Prairie n Doctor Quinn Medicine woman. There were so many good series n sitcoms to follow along with in the old days. I have no patience with the reality TV shows on lately.
The networks also had alot of great TV Movie series such as Roots n Midnight, n who could forget the drama of Dallas n Knots Landing? I'm sure there are few young folks who even knew that JR (Larry Hagman) used to Play "Tony*" (*edit- I messed up n typed:"the second Darren" Which was from Bewitched- see G's comment)
on the old I Dream Of Jeannie show. (Hope I got all that right- It's all direct from my fried after work*
Entertainment simply isin't keeping up a fast enough pace with the new stuff we're ready for, n rehashing ad-nauseum what we've already seen.
If you don't have money for the the 900 channel Cable deal these days, new shows n movies are very limited. I'll soon get to see one of the films I've waited for. Meanwhile I'm getting sick of the already saw that DVD or tv show thought.
I hope you didn't mind my trail down nostalgia tv lane, I miss that ride. Maybe you even remember some of them...
