Let's Talk TV

After America's Got Talent tonight, there was the cutest show, with William Shatner, George Foreman, Henry Winkler, and Terry Bradshaw in Tokyo, all playing themselves. Better Late than Never. It was funny! And Shatner is 85!

Is anyone as disgusted with Robert (Jerry Springer, Maury Povich) Irvine's new, low life show as I am? What ever respect he may of had, just went out the window, IMO.

I haven't seen it. But if you recall, his original resume as a professional chef was riddled with outright lies. I have never watched him since. So if he has resorted to the JS type of show, I am not surprised.

Yesterday afternoon's Labor Day holiday was spent on the Norwegian train trip from Trondheim to Bodo which showcases Norway's beautiful scenery. At certain times of the year the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) can be viewed in Bodo.

I found this selection in the Netflix streaming catalog -- it was originally a "Slow TV" show. Just lovely.

We started watching the second season of Narcos on Netflix this week. It is good.

85, wow! BBC America is running a 50th anniversary Star Trek marathon thru this weekend. For any Star Trek buffs here, there's an interesting read about the sets and lighting in Star Trek. Star Trek was so unique in that regard. The sets and lighting were very well done on a minimalist budget. It's no wonder to me that it's recognized as a classic 50 years later.

Have a feeling Captain Kirk had a bit of "work" done. I want to look as good as he does when I get to 85. These guys truly like each other, and are delightful to watch!

It's a summer filler, the last episode will be next week after AGT.

We're going to miss "Brain Dead" when it ends this Sunday at 11:00 PM. It, too, has been a summer filler show (CBS), but Himself said if it went over well he hopes the network brings it back in January when they start dumping shows that aren't cutting it.

Never has politics been so much fun!
