I didn’t like the 1993 miniseries ‘Tales of the City’. You regret watching it later. I liked ‘Dharma & Greg’ until it went lame and toothless and she cheated with Kevin Sorbo.

I’ve never seen ‘Zoë, Duncan, Jack and Jane’ or ‘Rave Macbeth’ or ‘Smith’.

Does anyone recall ‘Sorry!’?

There is a 5th ‘Phantasm’ movie?

Cleared out a 1997 tape. It began with a season 3 ‘Due South’ ep ‘Spy v Spy’ in which Fraser is boring and self righteous. Stan makes no sound critical judgments. Getting rid of Ray made this show go horribly tragically cataclysmically wrong. Fraser no longer changes his facial expression and is perpetually sour and unpleasant. He also looks bored and vaguely irritated. There are spies and this was alarmingly incompetent.

Then came a ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Warrior...Princess’ in which Xena swaps places with her look-alike, Princess Diana. An irritating dude who looks like the druggie looking crazy-eyed slimeball from ‘NCIS: LA’ lurks. This was not funny just scenery chewing brio. Diana is the dumbest person alive. This ep sets a certain lower standard and there are no character truths. Xena is relentlessly barking in this imagined history that was worryingly tepid.
