I started a re-watch of Twin Peaks The Return, not seen it since it aired, I'm 2 episodes in and I'm loving it still. It's making a tiny bit more sense too

Now that i'm holiday and will watch Airwolf over the few days when i can.

Some good old 90s retro. X Files (Teso dos Bichos - not a great episode but I still enjoyed it), Seinfeld, 3rd Rock from the Sun and half the pilot of Sliders (just didn't have time to watch it all, will go back to it). All very entertaining. We didn't know how good we had it!

Well, I watched Des. Reasonably understated with only a few dramatic elements embroidered, this was gripping and sobering at the same time. Worth a look.

It’s had very positive reviews all round and how good tennant was as his portrayal as Nilsen, it was more of the aftermath and interviewing him and finding who his victims where, than the crimes he committed.

It's a very enjoyable and funny show with interesting cases and characters but the real stars is the relationship between Denny ( William Shatner) and Alan ( James Spader) who might be on the complete opposite ends of the political spectrum but genuinely care and love each in a ultimate bromance , romance . Their scenes together are a joy and prove Shatner is much better suited as a actor at this type of comedic role.

Watched the pilot episode of the Untouchables, which deals with the Ness and his team bringing down Copone, it's quite violent for a show of its time but I thought it would take place over the entire series , with other cases being part of the show.

Also finished season one of Kojak which is very gritty . If it wasn't for telly savalas and spotting the guest stars I would of struggled with some episodes.

Some guest stars this season

Harvey Keitel
Héctor Elizondo
Marc Alaimo
Yvonne Craig
Richard Jordan
James Woods
John Ritter
John Hillerman
