What, you all thought that my first blog on FP would be about You're Under Arrest! in some way? Well, I will at some point have something to say about it but for now I thought I'd start my blogging experience with some thoughts on the non-anime TV shows & movies that I've currently been watching on DVD & Blu-ray. By TV I of course mean classic TV & under movies I'm including classic movie serials since I have a liking for those too. So, without further ado, let's get to classic TV (Primetime then animation) first:

Classic Primetime TV

Lost In Space, Season 2-Now in color! This is my 2nd favorite of the Irwin Allen shows after Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea & is in a lot of ways a bit more fun, especially with the byplay between Will Robinson, Dr. Smith & the Robot.

The Six Million Dollar Man, Season 1-This set included the three pilot movies along with the 13 episodes of the first season. It aired on ABC while I was in high school & with 2 episodes to go it has been good to see it once again after so long.

Lois & Clark-The New Adventures of Superman, Season 4-As much fun now as it was when it first aired. If only this & Seaquest DSV had aired at different times!

The Fugitive, Season 1-Pure TV gold IMO. There was a reason why this is considered by many to be one of the greatest series in television history & it shows in every taut episode.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Season 1-THRUSH doesn't stand a chance against Napoleon & Ilya!

Peter Gunn-With Henry Mancini's jazzy score & Craig Stevens' cool as Pete, how can you lose?

The Rat Patrol, Season 1-Duel of wits in WWII North Africa between Sgt. Troy's commandos & Captain Dietrich's men. Good stuff.

Thunderbirds-One of Gerry Anderson's wonderful SuperMarionation shows & my second favorite of his shows after Fireball XL-5 as well.

Zorro, Season 2 (Disney)-Yep, I've got 2 Guy Williams shows going (He later starred as Professor John Robinson on Lost In Space) & he's great in both. This second season is all new for me after 1 episode in & I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

Next time I'll get into the classic animation!
