    TV: tv shows you've recently watched

    Factory Made (Discovery Channel)

    Ever wonder how the things we need and enjoy in life are created? You might be suprised!

    Highly entertaining. Wish all seasons were available.




    What Happened Next (Discovery Channel)

    Discovery Channel explores the scientific explanations and theories behind some of the most unbelievable, scary, funny and jaw-dropping footage of mayhem, destruction, action and stunts ever caught on camera. This interactive 10-part series features several clips that get paused right before their big, dramatic moments. Which of the incredible - but scientifically possible - options presented, is correct?

    Great Watch !

    Thanks for the info about A Very Peculiar Practice, Spud and The Promise, Velvet.

    I want to recommend a comedy show I just started watching. It's been on for a while so you may have already seen it.

    It is Key & Peele.

    WWW.IMDB.COM
    Key and Peele (TV Series 2012–2015)
    Created by Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele. With Keegan-Michael Key,...

    It is rated at 8.3 on IMDB which is extremely high.

    Key & Peele are two comedians. If you saw the TV version of Fargo, you may remember them as the comical pair of FBI agents.

    Their show runs about 30 minutes per episode and if you are looking for some multi-racial comedy, I would recommend it.

    Scandal (2012 - )

    WWW.IMDB.COM
    Scandal (TV Series 2012–2018)
    Created by Shonda Rhimes. With Kerry Washington, Darby Stanchfield,...

    Am watching S03. Missed S01 and most of S02.
    But great show till now. Casting, acting and script is very good.

    The only thing that i find annoying is a certain 'camera snap' effect at the start of a scene. Hurts the eyes.

    Story: A former White House Communications Director starts her own crisis management firm only to realize her clients are not the only ones with secrets.

    About

    Most people above the age of 50 gew up with this show as one of the few TV shows we had back then. Today we have the choice of hundreds or maybe thousands of diff shows. Back then, we only had a handful and this show as one of the main shows.

    Everyone knew it and loved and hated Eddie Haskel. It was one of a few things that everyone could talk about cuz we all had this in common.

    Did you ever see the movie "Airplane"? Beaver's mom played a part in that movie and only about a quarter of the audience got the joke. She was great in that movie.

    Ahhh. Those were the days.

    I came across this series by chance (wish I could backtrack and recall how).
    Have just seen one episode till now and loved it (especially the kid and the teacher).
    But I really like the pacing, the characters and actors; and black and white has a unique allure (to me).

    I'll be sure to watch Airplane at the earliest. I see I have downloaded it sometime last Sept :-p

    I can understand your sigh 'those were the days', although my "era" starts after the 70s.
    You are right. There is a surfeit of TV shows today. Just can't keep up, nor is there any point. Only have the time and patience to watch an episode here and there.
