My latest nostalgic binge was the original 90210 series.. Just finished rewatching season 1 on DVD.
The first season was less soap opera, and more Afterschool Special.. Forgive me, I know it's corny but thought the first season' finale was really well acted..

Yes, yes He-man...WKRP's Les in his ultimate glory!
Guitarman (et al.), Do u/anyone remember the short-lived, syndicated WKRP sequel (?)
I know this gets obscure (& pointless).. but there was a New WKRP on in the early 90s for a while. It was a mix of new & original characters. I think French Stewart from '3rd Rock' was on it.. not nearly as good as the original run. But I'd like to rewatch some of the New 'KRP, to reevaluate it..

Yes HE-MAN, i do indeed remember that. As a matter of fact, i have it saved to watch when im done with the original wkrp. Seems to me that you are correct about the cast only having a few from the original. I havent checked yet, but im guessing it was on for only one season, maybe two. I think it was called the "new wkrp in Cincinnati"

I'm working thru DVD sets of the old Lou Ferrigno' Incredible Hulk series.
This show never gets old to me.. Even as an adult I appreciate the series' dive in to the mysteries/experience of anger, self-control, split personality..

I'm on season 3, & it seemed like the writers shifted the paradigm some.. David Banner has a harder time concealing his secret, and is less guarded and/or careful. More ppl (mostly people Banner eventually trusts), discover his split identity, before he disappears again.

Awesome show!!! The pants never rip completely!! Lol I need to rewatch that - loved it as a kid. I ended up starting the old Star Trek NG on Netflix - my family used to cook burgers and watch it every Saturday when I was in middle school. I can smell it every time the theme song starts haha.

Ahh yes, the hulk...great show. I have it on my fav list, the perfect show to take place of wkrp since im almost thru it.

...also, loved the end of the episode piano music they played on it, funny how i remember small things like that from many years ago, and cant remember where i put the remote most nights! Must be selective memory!

Yeah, NYPD Blue is one of my favorite cop dramas. At the time it dropped (around '93), it was unique in some respects.. really committed to a realistic, humanizing depiction of the personal & professional lives of police officers. A lot of the elements they innovated are routine in cop shows now, but.. My opinion, something that still distinguishes the series is it's acting. They were killing it; some of the intense & intimate scenes still move me. They were also good at rotating cast members.. replacing departed characters w/more great actors.

Another old cop show I love, that seems largely forgotten: Wiseguy.

If anyone’s looking for a hilarious binge, I suggest a little Canadian show called Workin Moms! I think it’s now added to Netflix world wide. It’s fresh and only two seasons added but I highly suggest it. I’m not huge on comedies but it’s smart and well written and it had me in stiches. It does touch a little bit on some heavier stuff like postpartum but it’s well worth it if anyone hasn’t seen it yet!

I'm on the fifth (& final) season of my
Incredible Hulk binge..
It only consists of 7 episodes.. I was reading that shortly before season 5, Bill Bixby experienced personal tragedy & ratings were dropping. So the series was abruptly & unfortunately cancelled. I remember in the late 80s a couple of TV movies were made, attempting to wrap up the series' storylines. Maybe I'll try to find 'em @ the library too..

Anybody else currently binging on something ? And I hope y'all are having a good day..
