MASH: Season 4, Episodes 10-12 - Mulcahey gets a visit from a gung-ho chaplain, Sgt Zale gets a Dear John letter, Radar gets drunk. I'm noticing more and more episodes that don't have a laugh track. It's a good thing so far as I'm concerned since I turn them off anyhow, but it's indicative of the direction the show seems to be going.
Special mention for tonight's Last Leg shortly available on All4. David Tennant was on as well as a unique tribute to the late Terry Jones which has to be seen to be believed... Also next weeks Last Leg is a Brexit special, featuring Armando Iannucci and Lorraine Kelly as Westminster reporter and... yes at last the Geoff from Byker Grove, Victorian explorer beard finally will go....hoorah!
Good Omens episodes 1 and 2, lovely, really enjoying it so far.
‘The Avengers’ ‘Look-(stop me if you've heard this one) But There Were These Two Fellers...’ An episode from the Tara King era where land developers are being murdered by clowns and entertainers from the bygone days of the music hall. From the description alone, you can probably tell why I love this programme.
Family Guy: "Connie's Celica" - Decent for a modern Family Guy, though the show's usual pitfalls are present.
Curb Your Enthusiasm: "Happy New Year" - Larry David makes a very welcome return and is just as adept at exploiting social loopholes as ever.
Short Treks: "Children of Mars" - Pointless trash with a truly loathsome Bowie cover.
Picard: "Remembrance" - I liked it. I'm very surprised to say that since I really hate both Discovery and the Short Treks and this is more or less the same band of people involved. I'm not 100% happy about everything in it, and the overall arc could easily wind up going somewhere stupid, but for now, this first episode was pretty good. It's nice to enjoy Star Trek again for once.
MASH: Season 4, Episodes 17-19 - Potter orders everyone to be nice to Frank; Hawkeye talks and talks and talks and talks to no one in particular; Radar makes a friends and it ends in tears.
Alright, I gotta say that "Hawkeye" episode sucked. I really didn't need to watch a full episode of Alan Alda just nattering away constantly with no other plot or characters. And the incessant singing!!! WHY??? I appreciate wanting to change up the format, but this one is not a successful experiment if you ask me.
MASH: "The Novocaine Mutiny" - Hawkeye on trial after Frank charges him with mutiny. This goes so far beyond their usual spats I'm shocked Hawkeye will ever be able to even be in the same room as with him again. It's not snarking back and forth, or practical jokes, or even reprimands, Frank tried to have him hanged.
Columbo: "A Matter of Honor" - Columbo goes to Mexico, where Khan Noonien Singh is a murderous bullfighter. I like that they referenced Columbo's cruise ship adventure from last season as a pretense for why the Mexican cops would trust him. Overall a pretty boring episode, and by the end I don't think Columbo's proved much of anything. He has plenty of evidence, none of which he uses in his final gotcha.

wife and i are pretty much 98% behind by 3 seasons on all the comic book tv shows (no coincidence our boy is 3 1/2..) I watched the last episode of Arrow last nite. Will take me 4eva to catchup, I can fill in the blanks over time. Man o Man.. "Diggle"... He is moving to Metropolis.. <cough cough> we know who he really is destined to be..
Killing Eve Season 2: Very different from the first season, but equally enjoyable. Consistently excellent, with some truly despicable villains.
Shrill Season 2 episode 1: This was...pretty good. The first season was so perfectly self-contained that I'm wary of this one because it seemed to have already said everything it needed to say. Right now it's just coasting on Aidy Bryant's charisma.
