I agree.

I just finished the first season of Da Vinci's Demons, not really my usual cup of tea but it's good enough to waste some time on.

Hollywood's Killer Bear;

A fascinating if ultimately sad documentary about a televised stunt involving a grizzly bear named ROCKY and one of his minders. The stunt turned nasty, the bear attacks his minder and the minder ends up losing his life. Hard to watch at times, despite the attack lasting no more then eight seconds

The other day, Chloe was watching something that she had recorded about the bear Hercules - Hercules (bear) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It was a fascinating documentary, featuring many incidents that I remembered from the time - the 'wrestling' aspect, the many television appearances, the 'escape' etc

Watching Star Trek next generation on netflix. The first two seasons have not aged well apart from a handful of episodes , most are at times are painful to watch. Poor acting, terrible scripts and dialogue. TOS has aged better than this. But things pick up in the third (when Roddenberry had less to to with it) and it becomes the classic it is with many stand out episodes including my favourite episode of any trek show, the inner light.

It's odd isn't it.

TNG with all it's slickness back in the day has dated so badly. It looks worse than the original series as you say. Even classic Doctor Who and Blakes-7 stands up better.

Just watched the pilot for the flash and enjoyed this a lot more than I thought. Can't wait for the full series. Was a nice touch to have John Wesley shipp, who played the flash in the 90s show as Barry aliens father.

Watched penny dreadful last night and expected it to be dreadful but to my surprise I ended up enjoying it so much I watched the entire series in one sitting last night.
