My alltime favourite tv show is TWIN PEAKS.

I haven't seen it in a very long time, but I was oddly fascinated by Twin Peaks as a kid. It was unlike anything I'd ever seen before. I was only 11 when it premiered (I often joked later on with my mom and dad about questionable parenting in letting me watch it at that age), so I'd be curious to revisit it nowadays when I could probably understand the nuances and such better.

And I must say, no other character on television has ever creeped me out more than Killer Bob. big grin


Same here. Although when I bought the DVD set and rewatched it again a year ago or so, the impact wasn't quite as dramatic as it was back when I saw it for the first time (I was about 13-14 at the time).

2000's
Threshold


Nice! I love that show. It had unbelievable promise and it was the saddest show cancellation I've ever witnessed. Loved the DVD release with the extra 4 unaired episodes. It was just about the most perfect ensemble cast ever assembled, they all had tremendous chemistry with one another (Carla Gugino, Rob Benedict, Brent Spiner, Peter Dinklage, Charles Dutton, Brian Van Holt).

You get serious cool points for mentioning this show!

Wow, hard question, so I will break it down . for me comedy rule the roast when it came to TV shows. In the 50's THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW was hilarity elite, the comic talent of that cast was impeccable. Everyone of them- I LOVE LUCY-she was a one of a kind classic. THE HONEYMOONERS-Wonderful sitcom, the 60's shows with the music was fine too. BURNS AND ALLEN SHOW- Gracie was a one of a kind talent, and Burns was perfect as the straight dry man looking at the camera.-60's- THE MUNSTERS was a sly very funny sardonic look at society with so many innuendo jokes. the 70's -BENNY HILL WAS hilarious- THE TWO RONNIES were hilarious too.THE ODD COUPLE - Was a great show with 2 great actors in the lead.-the 80's- CHEERS - very well done comedy drama-90's-FRASIER-Another fine well done comedy drama with a great cast. Still watch it once in a while these days. EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND-One of the best ones of the modern era-KING OF QUEENS-a very enjoyable show-BECKER- Enjoyable as well and not because me and my line producer found one of the stars early in his career. There are more, but these are my top 13- non comedies later.

I generally have enjoyed movies more then non comedy TV shows, it seems to me comedy works fine in a 30 minute sitcom format, but drama and other genres do not as well. Of course to each one's own In the horror Scifi, some of the ones I enjoyed were-THE TWILIGHT ZONE, ONE STEP BEYOND, NIGHT GALLERY. DRAMA- PERRY MASON, COLUMBO, DR KILDARE,KOJAK, ETC. ETC. GAME SHOWS- PASSWORD, JEOPARDY , WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, LET'S MAKE A DEAL, YOU BET YOUR LIFE etc etc. These days I enjoy PAWN STARS, because I did spend many years as a big time vender, so I surely relate to bantering.

Oh, and since chronologically I am a "child of the '80s", my favorite show from my youth was Magnum, P.I.. It made the hell of school and existence in general tolerable. I adored that show then and I still watch it now.

You'll definitely want to check out the unaired episodes! The best one being a jailbreak by all of the previously captured "persons of interest" that the Threshold crew managed to track down. More great character moments and developments. The last unaired episode doesn't provide a closure to the show but does offer a tantalizing lead-in to what the show could've been.

I Just checked Amazon, and it costs no more than one specialty soundtrack. I'll place my order!

jenkwombat - Glad to see another Elementary fan. I was initially a little uncertain about the idea, and the early episodes felt a bit rocky, but the show ultimately found its footing and has evolved into quite an entertaining and compelling series. In many ways, I feel it's also surpassed BBC's Sherlock, which many still unfairly peg it as being a rip off of despite the fact it has created it's own unique feel and identity.
