    I've watched a few Twighlight Zones on Netflix this year. Ok, 25 or so. lol. How can a 60 year old show with zero special effects put the hair up on my neck?

      My recommendations on Netflix are Longmire and Peaky Blinders Series.
      My recommendations on Amazon Prime are The Man in the High Castle and Tin Star series....and for a little light comedy, Detectorists.

        I second Peaky Blinders.

        In fact, I third and fourth Peaky Blinders. Absolutely brilliant TV. I love the characters, the acting and the cinematography. I've watched it twice just to pick up all the nuances of the show.

      On You tube search for HERO Rally. Classic car time/speed/distance type rallys in England. The episodes from a couple years ago have decent commentary and are reasonably lengthy. The current ones are shorter and lack the commentary.

          Now if they had the old Perry Mason Mint episodes I'd be set for a while, but unfortunately, they don't have him.
          Put up an antenna and you can get ME tv, which has Gunsmoke and Perry Mason everyday for free. I watched the Alfred Hitch Presents and the theme song gets to me after awhile. Twilight Zone still hold up pretty well.

            Thanks, Berry. I just looked to see what channel our local MeTV is, tuned in and what do you suppose was on? That's right, Perry Mason Mint. I see they also have Hiway Patrol and Dragnet.

            I recently canceled my YouTubeTV as I always do after March madness till the start of CFB (if there will be CFB this year) so this will give me something else to watch.

              Jim - if you call him "Perry Mason Mint" then you must have been a MAD reader in your youth.

              Yeah, my brother and I did read MAD magazine. I don't really remember "Perry Masonmint" originating from Mad, but I do remember once my brother and/or I called him Masonmint once or twice, my mother picked up on it and forever thereafter called him that.

            One of my favorite TV series as a kid was Adam-12. The wife and I have been watching the episodes sequentially on MeTV. Gotta love Malloy and Reed!

              Sometimes I think it is a mistake to watch TV shows that you remember as being really neat when you were a kid. Although some are still enjoyable, most are pretty lame when viewed as an adult. Kind of like meeting the cute little girl you remembered from childhood. Somethings are best rememered as they were.

                Very true. I love Star Trek, but sometimes watching TOS, if I don't sort of regress back 40 years, it can be tough to watch.

                I remember a guy on this forum posting about some brand of canned meat that he LOVED as a kid called "potted meat". It was a real treat to him when he was a kid. Lo and behold he found it in the grocery store recently and bought some and was so disappointed and found it to be basically dog food and couldn't believe he used to love it so much. They say you can never go back.

              I just watched Thirteen Days (HB0). I had seen it before and would watch it again. The next time, however, I would like to stop it and rewind it on occasion for clarity. Do you realize how close to nuclear war this event was? The movie reportedly is well documented using actual text from recordings for script. Ken O'Donnell (Kevin Costner) was JFK's appointment secretary and not the "Big Dog adviser" as portrayed but I liked this movie anyway. It seems that it is not Netflix streamed but can be had via DVD only. I may send for it.

                  One idea that hit me in order to pass the time (while working on the 250) is to listen to all the Beatles songs in chronological order beginning to end.

                  Like many people, I tend to remember where I was and what I was doing, based on the music of the time. See you down memory lane....

                  Oh, how the mind wonders.

                    I shamefully admit that I was a late Beatles bloomer. I saw them early on the Ed Sullivan Show but was not hooked. At the time (during the 60's) I was listening to everything Motown, anything Philly sound groups, BS&T, Chicago, Cold Blood, and the many Funk Bands to the present. Along this path I heard other familiar artists cover the Beatles work, notably Roberta Flack, and Earth wind an Fire (Let It Be and Got to get You Into My Life, respectively) to name a couple. Not too shabby.

                    I subscribe to SiriusXM and The Beatles channel, 18, has done this a few times. It certainly demonstrates the evolution of the music, not to mention bringing back memories......

                    Needless to say, channel 18 is my top favorite.

                      I can't watch anymore TV. It's too wet to roto till and plant potatoes, or paint the porch and back deck. So I have been reading my new favorite author, Rick Atkinson. He has won a Pulitzer. My wife gave me "The British are Coming" for Christmas and I kept telling her how good a writer he is (she's a lit professor.) For my Birthday she bought me three more. I am reading "An Army at Dawn" now. It is about WW2 in North Africa. Both are fascinating and page turners.
