I like chistmas movies as well.
But hate horror and zombie movies.

Over the last year I have been watching all episodes of Highway to heaven and some of The little house on the prarie.
Strangely lately I have a thing for Michael Landon for some reason. But I've heard he was notorousley difficult to work with.
And Victor French was perfect as his co star in both those series.
They both left this world way too early.

I recently also watched F&F Hobbs and Shaw on the telly for the first time and I did like it.
What made my day was those hot rod trucks in that movie.
I want to build something like that tow truck in the future.

I've watched all but the latest season of Death in Paradise, me, my wife and my grandson watch it.  I'm at season 8 of Walking Dead, I haven't watched it since before lockdown. My wife hates horror or zombie stuff so I have to watch it when she isn't about. Started watching Fear the Walking Dead too but can't remember where I got to with that show.

Good zombie movies/tv shows are some of my favourite.  So Walking Dead, Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead (and of course Shawn of the Dead), Zombieland, Cockneys v's Zombies and Zomboat (low-grade, but total crackups), etc...... and I nearly went nuts when the zombies appeared in Game of Thrones!
I'm not into B-Grade or Shlock Horror, even if it is zombie related.
Wife and I first started dating during S2 of Walking Dead, and was surprised when she sat down and enjoyed it.
I enjoyed the first 3 Seasons of Fear the Walking Dead, but it just kind of goes downhill from there.

Been watching  Blake's 7, first on dailymotion.com & now on DVD ... bit of a mixed blessing TBH, the better sound is a big bonus, but although you'd think better quality video would be too, it does tend to highlight the nearly square 1970s TV format, and the ropy sets & props. 

I just finished season one, episode 10, which featured a a great leap forward in space exterior exterior effects by using actual models, rather than cutouts against very trippery backgrounds :D

I can't really remember the first two seasons from the first time around, I suspect I was too young for the mid-evening TV slots, season 3 (where it all went a bit leather fetishist, apparently) and season 4 (where it went darker still, and the 3-legged Enterprise flying backwards was replaced with something a lot more Battlestar Galactica) were more of my time.   

For anyone familiar with the end of season 4, let my tell you my theory - Avon ducked & got away ;)

Overall, although it's very flawed in many, many ways and it really shows it's 70s Dr Who links, it did at least show sci-fi could be a bit dark, and didn't have to wrap up everything in the one episode with everyone (everyone not expendable, anyway) back safe in a "comedic" epitaph. 

It's uncanny how much the first two seasons of Red Dwarf has in common with it :blink:

I’ve always wanted to re- watch Blake’s 7.
Good story line, but limited by the technology of the day.
But it should never be remade.
