Thread: What was the last TV Show or Movie you saw, and did you like it?

  1. #5691
    Just watched Shutter Island. I'd never seen it. Pretty good movie, held my interest.

    Each night before I go to bed I watch two episodes of the Cisco Kid on Amazon Prime. Pretty cheesy, but I enjoy the artifacts of simpler days. Blew through Car 54 Where Are You? too quickly, really enjoyed that one.

    Story of how they tracked down Ted Kaczynski.

    8 episodes, all about 45 mins.

    Fantastic series
    Unfortunately the next season “Deadly Games” which purports to be about how they tracked down Eric Rudolph is a largely fictionalized account. It both misrepresents the factual portions and includes many completely made up characters and events including depicting an attempted IED attack on the FBI and two murders committed by Rudolph while on the run which never happened.

    The book, "Shutter Island" was much better than the movie, which both my wife and myself found wanting on many levels. If you haven't read the book, I'd recommend it.

    The "Cisco Kid", O'Henry's 'Robin Hood of the West', was one of my favorites as a kid. "Oh Pancho...Oh, Cisco!" "Car 54" was great too...but especially the Cisco Kid.

    Good stuff, Dan.
    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.

    I watched a couple of episodes of Flipper on the tv the other morning. While the story lines were meh, it was still kind of cool. I enjoyed it being filmed on location in a Florida that was less developed than I’ll ever know. I also like that it was cool to have a tv show about 12 and 13 year old kids cruising all over the place alone in their own boat solving problems and helping people.

    Yup. Watched many of those serialized shows on WGN as a kid in Chicago.

    Don't forget The Lone Ranger with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, and The Adventures of Robin Hood with Richard Greene.

    Modern kids are too "sophisticated" to enjoy 'em. Too bad.

    I was afraid I was the only one who remembered the Cisco Kid, LOL Certainly seems that way talking with those of my generation, although things like HR Puffin stuff, seem to be remembered.

    Watched Evil Genius, the pizza bomber story. I remember the news when it happened, and never thought they solved it. Looks like they figured it out (who), but could really never prove it. Watched on Christmas day, because it was the farthest thing from a Christmas show.

    Thanks for the heads up

    The wife and I watched Tombstone for maybe the 10000000000th time. It’s such a fun Western and IMO second only to Unforgiven for the past two decades in western movies.

    WW84 is absolute crap. Between the SJW garbage, the horrible plot, the bad acting, the "use your words" conflict resolution, the inability to generate any suspension of disbelief...
    Does the above offend? If you have paid to be here, you can click here to put it in context.

    RE: Shutter Island, I generally try to stay away from sci-fi or suspense, so I might take a pass.

    RE: The Cisco Kid I get where they get 'here's adventure' but I'll be darned if I have found the 'here's romance' much less robbing from the rich to give to the poor.
