    30 Rock! Never watched it when on-air, I saw the pilot but I didn't like Tracy Morgan so much (then) and a couple of the other charcters didn't grab me and I didn't return to it.

    In the past few days I've gone through the first 2 seasons. It's damn brilliant. So many classic lines in every episode. Its like the MST3K of sitcoms.

    Nothing really yet of old stuff, but finding stuff on Netflix that I may not have watched if my time was more limited. Not having sports is really "opening up" time to watch more entertainment shows. One show I watched is 100 People (or something like that) where they have a group off 100 people and they do "social experiments" on them. It's kinda fun I suppose. Also checked out an episode of Cheer, since I heard good things, but really not my kind of show. I've also done some weird things such as go back to some old DVDs and watch the special features.

    Bob's Burgers and Family Guy. Two episodes of each air everyday on the local Fox channel before prime time, so I set up 1Ps.

    Doctor Who. The old ones. An OTA sub-channel I get, retro, has two episodes every weekday, and four on Sat and Sun. Jon Pertwee (S6,7,8), Tom Baker (S14,15), etc. They are only 480i, so don't take up much space.

    I'm finally getting around to watching Peaky Blinders. I've got so many shows backlogged on my server that it's going to take me a while to get around to them. I also want to finish watching the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as well as a lot of other shows. Too much TV and so little time.

    I am making good use of AmazonPrime. "The Expanse" was something I never bothered to watch when it was on SyFy but I am enjoying it now. Similarly I am starting "The Dresden Files" which is feeling kinda dated, but it's only 12 eps.

    I *highly* recommend the short indy movie "Dave Made A Maze"

    I'm on a baseball movie binge. Got some titles I had not heard of before by posting this on FB. There is a lot of stuff on my netflix or hulu so I am bouncing around.

    Nothing yet. I still have a few Fall shows built up on the DVR (full seasons of shows like The Rookie) that I haven't yet watched and some other series I've started (Netflix, HBO), but haven't yet finished. It'll take me awhile to get through the stuff I already have.

    Just bit on a Starz app $19.95 for 6 months offer and watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I'm hoping Lionsgate puts more new movies on there like Knives Out and Bombshell instead of selling them all to random highest bidders. Zombie Land: Double Tap is arriving Tuesday. Also just signed up for a Hulu free month so I'll be able to watch Parasite.

    I discovered "Dead Like Me" was on Amazon Prime, and it's the only Bryan Fuller show I haven't seen (I didn't subscribe to Showtime way back when).

    "The Imagineering Story" on Disney+ is an excellent docuseries that tells the story of the people that create the Disney theme parks.

    good show - Linda Cardellini is fantastic as always

    ETA: disregard; as @The Spud points out I've confused Dead TO Me and Dead LIKE Me.

    Linda Cardellini = Dead TO Me.

    Ellen Muth & Mandy Patinkin = Dead LIKE Me.

    Both great shows though.

    One of my all time favorite series. I vaguely recall a movie made several years later, that sadly had little to none of the je ne sais quoi of the series.

    A great, great series.
