    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    Cable's went crazy with true crime documentary's lately, there's dozens of the things. Some seem to have borrowed a few tricks from City Confidential, an earlier show.


    My favorite episode was the one about Skidmore Missouri. Skidmore's a wide spot on the road that's seen better times. They had a bad ass, a bully and a thief as a kid, a one man crime wave when grown. But he was slick and had a good lawyer. He never did any real time. Till he shot a guy who didn't die, and was convicted of attempted murder. When the day comes bad ass is supposed to report to jail, he's found drinking in the bar. The court postponed his report date once again. They shouldn't a done that, the town had waited decades for this day, and now it wasn't happening.


    A half a dozen guys grab their guns, and bad ass is filled full of lead in the bars parking lot. Now it's time for the rest of the state to freak. Everybody from the FBI to People Magazine come to Skidmore. Where they get stonewalled. From the youngest kid to the oldest graybeard, nobody knows nothing. The only unhappy people are bad ass's family, and his crooked lawyer. When the lawyer threatens a wrongful death suite, bad ass's house burns that very night. Lawyer takes the hint and heads for greener pastures. Far as I know, that was the end of it. Skidmore, your alright.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    Have any of you seen "Father Ted"
    Ah thats another favourite and a similar show was Bless me Father with Arthur Lowe (Captain Mainwaring, Dads Army).

    Dead Mans Gun for a bit of wierdness plus Alfred Hitchcock Presents can be good.....The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Terry Pratchets The color of Magic and Going Postal (I didn't realise he'd got more stuff on film till just now https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0695332/)

    Some kids shows from the '60s & 70s can be a bit of a giggle as an adult such as Captain Pugwash....Seaman Staines?....Roger the cabinboy? and Batman from the 60's and suchlike heh!....they were trolling the hell out of kids back then.

    Strange fact about Morrow: As well as he handled his Thompson in that show, he actually hated firearms.
    Combat is a favourite. Good story-lines and acting aside, the intermittent News reel shots from the war are pretty good but the resourcing of the series must have been an epic in itself even if you do get to know that war-town quite well after a while.

    Now I have a bit of a sick sense of humour, so I laughed my ass of at the first one, but the second one, funny as the songs were, I found more than a little disturbing.

    @Don Keyknob

    My original reply to this seems to have gotten lost in the ether somewhere, ah well.

    I watched this as a kid and never realised how much innuendo was involved, why would I?

    I must admit I initially LMAO at this, I mean big time, but upon reflection after all the shit with 70's D.J.s it has suddenly taken on a whole new meaning.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    I think Combat was the best TV series on the air at the time. I've recently re-watched all five seasons. Another Mathew McCohhahay movie (I can't spell worth shit) is Sahara. Now, there are two different movies out there with the same name. One has Jim Belushi in it. It's a World War II movie. The one with Mat and Penney Cruz is hilarious, action packed, and a fun one to watch.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    I have to say I was little concerned at something like this being shown to kids (ME) of such a young age, so I looked it up and found this on wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_(TV_series)

    In 1979, the cast and crew of Rainbow made a special exclusive sketch for the Thames TV staff Christmas tape, sometimes referred to as the "Twangers" episode. This sketch featured plenty of deliberate sexual innuendo (beginning with Zippy peeling a banana, saying 'One skin, two skin, three skin, four...' before being interrupted), and was never shown at the time (as it was never intended to be screened to the general public.) The cast later sang "The Plucking Song".
    The clip became famous after being aired on Victor Lewis-Smith's Channel 4 programme TV Offal (1997) and was referred to as 'the pilot episode' in order to fit into the regular programme segment "The Pilots That Crashed"; however, the clip clearly was not a pilot, as Geoffrey Hayes was not a regular presenter until the series itself was a year old. The clip became widespread with the increasing popularity of the Internet, first as an e-mail attachment and later via online video websites such as YouTube. This has led to many erroneous claims that the episode was publicly broadcast as a regular episode.[citation needed]
    Thankfully my childhood memories can remain intact, such that they are, and I can enjoy the clip again for what it is - adult humour intended solely for adult consumption.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    Got another to add to the list: the Twelve o'Clock High series. It's about a (fictional) B-17 bomber group in WWII. The acting is realistic, the combat situations are believable, the equipment looks 100% authentic, and each episode presents a difficult moral dilemma that eventually gets hashed out -- oftentimes without full resolution, however. Start here:

    Lol

    Yeah...several of the 1970's radio/tv/pop stars, upon reflection, were a bit strange.

    I've said on here before about meeting the main one as a boy. About 100 of us - small kids in a massive line waiting to shake his hand after a mini marathon. I shudder to think of it now.

    Behind the scenes, it must have seemed somewhat normal.

    I also remember one DJ (I won't mention who) that got accused of it, got insulted, denied it and went on to claim that everybody he'd assaulted was OVER 18.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    Though maybe not a total flop, the first Heavy Metal cartoon couldn't of done as well as Hollywood wanted. Like often happens when a big budget film disappoints, the studio found a director to do a sequel on allowance money. Heavy Metal II is everything the first isn't. Quick, dirty, and very cheaply made. The plot, they stole from the first movie. It's more or less the last segment of the first movie, the part with the blonde and the flying dinosaur. The director got a lot of stick for picking a porn star for the heroine's voice. Critics hated her. Why real critics would lower themselves to reviewing this gobbler I can't imagine, but they did. The bad guy is a space worker possessed by a evil rock he found. He's a piece a work. They messed up their big ending cause they ran out of time or money, but the whole things such a stinker it hardly matters. But if you like low buck animation, and some people do, it's ok. Long as you don't have to pay anyway.


    Another old oddball worth a look is 1941. Coming out long before 9/11 when respect for vets was still low, it's a better movie than the box office receipts showed. Spielberg's only flop, if I remember right. Starred Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. They been playing Christopher Walken's "The Dead Zone" on TV lately. It's still a good one.

    Re: Any suggestions for something woth watching?

    Finally got my hands on the first two seasons of Combat! For an old B/W T.V. show it seems promising, I've only watched the first two episodes. More comments to follow.

    For over the top 80's stuff/timetravelling/goofy good fights in one short movie, try Kung Fury! It's on youtube and it's fucking awesome.

    Don't know if Band of Brothers has been named yet, but you should watch that 10-episode show too.

    Don't know Kung Fury but I'll certainly give it a lash. Band of Brothers was an excellent show, thanks for reminding me.

    From Dusk Til Dawn, Goodfellas, Hornblower, Sons of Anarchy. Two more movies and shows you might like.

    edit: don't know where you're going to watch them, but I usually watch on https://www6.putlockertv.to/, or download them from https://1337x.to/home/ using uTorrent.

    Sons of Anarchy is a personal favourite. Couldn't really get into Goodfellas but sometimes persistence pays off - couldn't get into 'The Wire' the first couple of times trying, then something just clicked and I couldn't get enough of it.

    I usually download via uTorrent. Putlocker is very hit and miss with regards quality, if you can even watch the show /movie you want.

    I have the same with The Godfather, I just can't get past a certain moment in part 1, probably after 30 minutes or so, then I get tired of it and watch something else.

    A line by Peter Griffin (Family Guy) comes to mind: "it insists on itself, Lois!" I can't fully comprehend what he means, but yeah. I just can't.

    I don't know if anyone here liked the sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," but if you do a search on Youtube for that show's bloopers, they've got some pretty good ones.

    I kinda like the show and watch it occasionally, humour is a good thing, but bloopers don't really do it for me. There was a show in the U.K. called "It'll Be Alright On The Night" which showcased bloopers. The first season was great but it went downhill very quickly. The "bloopers" they began to show seemed somehow orchestrated in order to get on to shows like this in the hope, I imagine, to increase awareness of the shows and it put me off watching them.
