WATCHING FAVOURITE SHOWS ON DVD

J and I have quite a large collection of DVDs and we have more boxed sets of TV shows than we have films. It's a good thing we are both avid rewatchers as it would be jolly hard if we won't.

After we have watched Pointless of an evening if we haven't got any of our other shows (as mentioned yesterday) then we will watch an episode from a DVD, something we both really enjoy. We are currently watching Hill Street Blues which we both saw on TV decades ago, or at least saw parts of it, but this is our first watch on DVD - it won't be our last *g*

Some (I won't bore you by listing them all) of the shows we love and regularly rewatch are: NCIS, Buffy, The West Wing, M*A*S*H, Lewis, Midsomer Murders, Campion, Cribb, New Tricks, Gideon's Way, Pie in the Sky, Sapphire & Steel, The Sandbaggers, Poirot, Miss Marple (Joan Hickson), Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett), Jeeves & Wooster, Yes Minister & Yes Prime Minister plus quite a few others.

Some of these we have seen a couple or three times, some are multiple rewatches. It doesn't matter though how many times we rewatch something, even if we know it well we still find something new to enjoy.

I have a few box sets I watch on my own, mainly my other fannish shows that J isn't really interested in. They are The Professionals, Starsky & Hutch, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Due South.

We really enjoy settling down in the evenings to watch our DVDs.

I'm sorry to hear you're sick. Hope you feel better very soon.

Thank you.

So do I; it's been going on for long enough. I can manage about an hour on the computer pre-breakfast and the rest of the day is spent collapsed in front of the telly with a DVD or two :-(

I'm sorry to hear you're ill. I hope you get well soon. *hugs*

Miss Marple and Poirot are definitely among my lot of DVD's as well and of course my favourite Midsomer Murders and Lewis. I also love Stargate SG1 and Cadfael. I took my box of Joan Hickson's Miss Marple with me on holiday and because it rained so much, we managed to watch them all!

Thank you. I haven't felt this ill for years. A lot of people would say it was flu but given I can just about manage a shower and to do this one post a day even if I spend the rest of the day collapsed in front of the telly with DVDs it isn't. Just a jolly horrible virus which I've had since Wednesday. *Hugs*

How lovely; we have a lot in common. We had SG-1 and watched it a few times but in the end passed it onto my parents.

When did you finally give up on NCIS? Which seasons do you have?

I love Jeremy Brett's Sherlock, as well as both David Burke and Edward Harkwicke's Watsons. He's my favorite Sherlock, I think.

I haven't given it up; I'm just not downloading it, we decided not to take the risk this year. So I'm a whole season behind. But we'll keep going with it via DVDs.

He's my favourite too and like you I like both his Watsons.

I salute your commitment to NCIS, I tried to keep watching but was frustrated with the lack of character growth and logic-failing plots a few years ago (maybe 2 season or so before Ziva left?). I keep thinking I should try to catch up or start again but I just can't quite get myself in gear to do that.

Thank you. It helps because J is still interested. But I'm not rushing to get the latest DVDs. And for a while now I've been wondering where 'my' show has gone.

I know several other people in the same boat as you.
