TV Shows: What are you watching?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Last Kingdom was good- one of the better historical shows in a while.

Finishing up the Punisher S2 - I'm a sucker for anything Marvel related.

For comedy, the Marvelous Mrs Maisel on Amazon was one the best comedies I've seen in a long time. Great writing, production, acting - top notch.

Norsemen took me a while to get into, but it was fun. The Good Place was fun (2nd season took a while to get going).

Wifey and I watched another Columbo episode last night!

Dabney Coleman played a top defense attorney who murdered his unfaithful live-in girlfriend

... and framed her most recent lover for it.

Being a top criminal lawyer, Dabney figured he'd have no problem getting away with this crime.

But Dabney didn't figure on Lieutenant Columbo... whom he would accidentally refer to as Columbus.

:::SPOILER ALERT:::

Dabney had his partner tape a photo of Dabney to her forehead and purposely speed past a photo-radar cam

... at the exact time of the murder... on the other side of town!!

The perfect alibi... or so he thought.

Columbo had no problem ingeniously putting together a bunch of circumstantial evidence (much to Dabney's surprise)

... but that photo-radar snapshot showing him ten miles away from the scene of the murder took a lot of brainpower + footwork.

You could tell Dabney Coleman enjoyed working on this episode immensely.

And at the end, Columbo read expert lawyer Dabney his rights from a crumpled piece of paper he pulled from his pocket.

Partway through, when he asked Dabs for help reading one of the words well Ole Dabbers started to crack up! :lol:

They went to freeze-frame before it became too obvious to the audience, but I saw it!




Hey, I'd watch one of these newer series you guys talk about, but y'all seem unable to make them sound exiting at all.

What about zombies and vampires?

I like zombies and vampires, I don't suppose they make any shows about zombies and vampires these days eh?

It’s a girl who has to eat brains to stay from decaying. But she got a job at the morg to ease the food source. She is friended by a medical examiner eh investigates deaths and a detective.

Takes a deep breath...... she gets personality traits and memories fro the victims brain which helps solves crimes.... kinda cute like I said

Haha nothing like a good old episode of Colombo. It was the shadow on his face wasn't it?

Anyone seen any good comedy - standup? Think I watched everything there is.

Actually was the lack thereof (pictures don't cast a shadow under the nose). :mrgreen:

I also watch a fair amount of standup.

Ran through Perfume on Netflix after Spotless which was excellent. Perfume was decent. Now trying out The Chalet

Liked Happy Valley, not bad. What’s Hinterland like?
