Ferguson right now

Last night's Columbo was with Ross Martin (of Wild Wild West fame) as a murderous art critic.  Not bad.  I think this is early in the series.

good creepy Columbo tonight about a woman who gets away with her brother's shooting by pretending she thought he was a prowler; an almost perfect crime

before; the old Fugitive series with David Janssen, excellent show, now; Naked City, pretty rough stuff for the early 60s, funny how shows have gotten less gritty and real.

Are you sure? I thought that post-Hill Street Blues many tv drama became more real and gritty like NYPD Blue, Law & Order etc. or the Prime Suspect type series from over here. Sure there are some of the highly implausible and very fictional "Yeah, as if..." Miami Vice type shows, but there always was.

Itís this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

well yes, and certainly today's crime-scene dramas (U.S.) are quite graphic as compared to 25 years ago, but I find the old Noir to be more stark and direct, more of the street, of desperation, jealousy, real human conditions.   Watch an episode of The Untouchables and you'll see what I mean.

Got the DVD of the 1979 Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy series.  Well, if I thought the movie from 2011 was excellent, the series just whacks it out of the park.  Better in just so many ways...it helps, of course, that they have the luxury of time in a TV series to do justice to a complex Le Carre plot.  Also helps that it was shot back in the day which gives it a very authentic dreary look, important for this story.

Columbo about a spoiled rich-kid photographer who kills his conniving tormentor.

Peter Gunn ;  this was Blake Edwards' early b&w TV series with the famous theme song, and kind of a template for later private-eye shows

I love it. Seen it twice. Same with Smiley's People LOL.
Very true to the book and an extremely dignified performance by Alec Guinness.

Series 7 of Red Dwarf took awhile to sink in for me but I dig it.

I have finished series 1 of Misfits and like it so far,haven;t watched series 2 yet.
