Last night my wife and I started streaming -- via Amazon -- the BBC TV show "Catastrophe." 

It's up to season three, so we have a ways to go.

But so far, so good...

Finished season six of GAME OF THRONES. About to start season seven, which is currently airing on HBO, so I'll take my thoughts into the appropriate thread. 

"Battle of The Bastards" and "The Winds of Winter" might just be two of the most satisfying hours of television I've ever seen. Lots of payoffs to long-term plots and characters.

Think this counts as TV (even though it's a "film" on DVD), but watched Stephen King's IT.

It still stands up well, I feel. I care about the characters. The ending, well, bit anti-climatic, but I can't fault the build-up and the character-driven stuff.

I'm told the book is much better (most books tend to be). 2017 will be the year I read the book, I've made that vow.

Robbie,you are technically correct as IT was a tv mini-
series butchered into a film length.The book is SO much
better,you REALLY get to know and care about the
characters,definitely one of King`s best.

Waterstones is selling the book right now (not that it's ever been out of print) with a great new cover - I shall do it. 1,100+ pages seems daunting. Last time I did anything of that length was as a kid (LOTR). It may well take me more than a week to read it.

I feel old, given the mini-series is almost 30 years old!

STAR TREK (TOS) - "What are Little Girls Made Of?"

The android creation scene is still brilliant, done as it was with "primitive" special effects.

(Funny, too, that I have never heard the minibrains complain about the smooth floors in the caverns of Exo III.)

That episode scared the HELL out of me when I was about 5, and I avoided the series for quite  a while afterward. 
 It may have been my first encounter with 'Star Trek'...and it wasn't until 'Star Trek II' came out a few years later that I saw anything else connected with the franchise. The android forming from a blob was a bit unsettling...but I think the whining/screaming crescendo of the motors on that spinning 'centrifuge'  platform Kirk was strapped onto just freaked me out!

Ms Jackson -- whom I had the great pleasure of meeting last year -- is certainly one of the attractions of the episode, but fortunately there is also a strong story and some solid performances.

True J.B. but as a kid,it was Ms Jackson that captivated
me,upon watching the episode numerous times as an adult
the other qualities made an impression on me too.

Not a disc, but watched first four episodes (Season One) of DAREDEVIL via Netflix.

I am enjoying the mix of legal drama and action, not to mention the beginning of an arc. Kingpin is very menacing. I like the performances. Impressed so far.

Checking out the stand-up comedy of Jim Gaffigan on Netflix. Have seen three of his concerts (Beyond The Pale, King Baby, and Mr. Universe) with two more to go. Have to admit that I like watching a guy who can make you laugh without resorting to X-rated dialogue.
