Don't know if this can be classed as Classic but how about this one ?

Life On Mars

Great series that, got both series 1&2 down loaded it from the Torrent's lot.

Speaking of which, I've paused 'Lewis' very nice it is too, slightly different from 'Morse' but a goodie all the same though. "Lewis's" sidekick is an interesting bloke, and played very well by Laurence Fox. Anyone ever seen 'Lewis'.? If not give it a bash, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Ok 'nuff from me I'm going back 'Lewis' I got two more stories of his to watch....NICE. 8-)

Wayward Soul: I turned off "UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS", not because I hate the English, but because it was boring me to f#%king tears!

Thank you, WS. Now you've done it. Now you've really done it!

UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS came out in the years when I didn't watch TV. The murder trial years.

Recently, PBS did a show on the best of Masterpiece Theatre, and U,D came in at # 1.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/bestof/winners.html

Even that didn't move me.

However, there I was in the library, scanning the DVD shelves, and I saw UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS, the complete first season, with the missing episodes. I remembered your comment, so I thought I'd check it out and watch a couple of minutes so I could form an opinion...and now, thanks to you, I've got sixty-eight f#%king episodes to watch!

That's sixty-eight hours!! Damn you, WS!

I may have mentioned it here before, but I highly recommend The Duchess of Duke Street, too. Similar in theme, sort of, to Upstairs, Downstairs.

Slade,

By my count, that makes us even.
I've been silently cursing you for months, ever since you brought up the subject of westerns.

That provided me with the inspiration for writing a western-based short story containing elements of the supernatural.

Deciding to take a Slade-like approach and thoroughly research the subject, over the course of several months now, I've viewed close to one hundred films, ranging from the classics of the genre like HIGH NOON to the slapstick comedy of THEY CALL ME TRINITY and TRINITY IS STILL MY NAME.

On top of that, I've been reading, or re-reading, quite a bit of western literature, including select titles from Louis L'Amour, Zane Grey, Cormac McCarthy and Larry McMurtry.
I've almost finished reading the LONESOME DOVE series again, this time in sequential order.
Plus, several non-fiction books about the history of the Old West.

I'm just happy to have returned the favor! :twisted:

WS,

Now that's a post that cheers me. There's something about a Western that's good for the soul. I, too, can't let them go. Recently, I watched COMANCHE MOON and the remake of 3:10 TO YUMA. The trouble with 3:10 is the Bad Guy. You end up with two "honorable men," and that lets the air out of the conflict balloon. I doubt we'll ever see a villain as good as Wilson in SHANE.

The gold standard.

I'm just getting into JOHN ADAMS, an Eastern of sorts. Revolutions are caused by "rabble" hijacked by political thinkers who wrap the mob up in concepts of the gods.

So far, it's doing a good job of conveying that.

It sure doesn't hurt to have Tak Fujimoto behind the camera.

Have fun with your story!

I thought Comanche Moon was very well done, though the whole subplot with Val Kilmer's character ended being a lot of lead-up to a whole lot of nothin'. Steve Zahn was amazing as Gus, IMO.

MM,

That put a smile on my face. Don't forget to hunt down the Fredric March restoration one of these days.

Wheel-Steeler?

Steeler's Wheel?

RESERVOIR DOGS?

Connections?
