I am reliving the 90's, I have no idea why. Well, at least from the perspective of Television, I am doing the 90's gig. Blame it on Netflix and streaming video. Oh and the 70's too!
I have been watching the original Battlestar Galactica and loving every minute of it. This is 1978 SF baby, with lasers and spaceships and funky club scenes. Once I am through that, its on to the new version. I'll admit, I only watched sporadically and always seemed lost. So I am gonna start at the beginning, and do it right. Oh, and also wait impatiently for the new season of Caprica, a show I dig.
In the 90's, Sunday was a big Television day 'round these parts. So thanks to streaming video, I get to reboot that. It started in the afternoon. First up, Hercules:The Legendary Journeys! Sure its campy, goofy stuff, light TV if you will, but I got a kick out of it, and believe I have spent an hour a lot worse then that. Then right after that? Yeah man.. Xena: Warrior Princess. Again, kinda campy TV but still had some good stuff to it. Besides, it was Sunday afternoon, and more often then not, we were done with the week and just sitting around, kicking back.
Sunday night though.. that was the awesome stuff. We kicked off with X-Files, a show we still catch as catch can, but with it streaming.. oh yeah. Then right after was Deep Space Nine. Again we catch it as we can, but now, now we got it coming down the pipe.
So I have been doing a double shot of Hercules/Xena then a double shot of X-Files/DS9. Mix a bit of old school BSG and we are good to go. The Techno-tyke has been in tyke heaven as well. He has been doing a double shot of Bob the Builder and Thomas, The Tank Engine. So we do our housework, I write a bit, and the techno-tyke has our living room looking like Sodor and Bobsland
All is well..
