    Every time someone mentions Rectify I just have to jump in and reply. Rectify is one of our all time favorite shows and one of the most overlooked great shows of all time. Most have never even heard of it. It is hard to even describe or put into words why- you just have to watch it. Anyone who has not seen it, I highly, highly recommend it..

    Well that stinks- hopefully it shows up somewhere else......

    (I just looked at my Amazon prime and unless I am missing something, only season 1 is Prime- the other 3 seasons you have to buy........)

    These are certainly not the greatest shows, but the ones that stick in my mind and I was sad to see them end:

    1. Doctor Who (the episodes with Tom Baker and script coordinator Douglas Adams) He defeats evil with humor.
    2. Peewee's Playhouse. It was just stupid fun to watch.
    3. Don't Trust the B---- in Aptment 23. Wikipedia has this description exactly right:
      • Krysten Ritter as Chloe, the titular "B**** in Apartment 23," a hard-partying, irresponsible, freeloading, sexually adventurous con artist, described as having "the morals of a pirate."
    4. Monty Python's Flying Circus.
    5. Three way tie for similarly absurd Cartoon Network shows:
      1. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law
      2. The Brak Show
      3. Rick and Morty

    I didn't understand what was so great about Monty Python until the PBS station started showing reruns a few years ago. I didn't always get the humor, but sometimes it was great. And I hated for it to be over.

    (re: Rectify) Maybe you can get it on DVD or Blu-Ray from Netflix (yes, they still do that). You can get a free one-month trial and you can cancel it at any time. It originally aired on Sundance so maybe they're air it again at some point. I believe it ran for four seasons with a total of 30 episodes with the finale being almost two hours. It's intensely moving and emotional and extremely well acted. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it.

    My wife and I have been fans of Alan Tudyk for quite a while, and we are really looking forward to Season 2 of Resident Alien.

    Lots of laugh out loud moments, and some moments where we had to pause the playback so we could finish laughing. Hope Season 2 is not a huge drop off.
