Hello! Welcome 2018!
As I’m sure you folks noticed I’ve been off the grid for a couple of months. It is great to be back. I’m looking forward to reading your take on what you (or we) have been watching. I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to George for keeping us informed with his take on film. Also, what a great variety he has shared. Agree with his take on a film or not, it is wonderful reading.
Before going into a movie or two I’d like to share with you what my day to day viewing has been since I’ve been absent. Analog TV. Yep. No more dish nor am I streaming anything. Standard TV. It has been the bee’s knees. I invite all of you to give it a try. No more reality TV– not plagued with tons of infomercials about how to get skinny in 30 minutes. Followed by another infomercial centered on a pot or pan I must own to eat healthy and never have to wash a dish again. Nope, just regular TV, such as Colombo. I’ve blogged Colombo in the past so you folks know I’m a fan– getting to watch it every Saturday night has been so much fun. BatMan with Adam West is on Saturday nights as well. This last week Liberace guest starred, playing two roles (both villains) and it was POW! Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter is part of that line up. The particular episode I watched guest stared Eric Braeden who is the one and only Victor Newman from Young and Restless. We all know what kind of nasty character Victor Newman is; he didn’t let me down in the 1970’s super hero serial. In color! Analog is more fun then TV Land. There is a movie channel as well. Older films and lots of Westerns alongside of who done it’s and some really terrific film noir. I just watched a 1966 Western The Professionals. You can look for my take on that in following articles. January 8th was a fun filled day of Elvis Presley movies. Everything from G.I. Blues to Blue Hawaii. Really jolly movies. What a talent. My pop corn popper has been getting a lot of use. OH! Best part I do have an old 1970 air popper and pop corn never tasted so well.
Speaking of lost talent I’ve really enjoyed watching many of today’s stars in their beginning roles. It has also been a treat to see many of the talents we have lost on the small screen. Variety shows, game shows and original nightly dramas are all on stations such as METV, or COZY. Even PBS is more fun.
Well, I’m done preaching to you analog. I am glad to be back. Excited to get some ideas and thoughts to you all. Anxious to read your thoughts, so let’s get chatting.
