Yep - done to make Alamy more financially palatable for sale.

Yes, a good move for them - as for us birds on the bottom rung of the roost.......

I for one will take comfort knowing our collective efforts will keep one ragged soul from living rough on the streets of Los Angeles.

The house that Fox built (or bought, anyway). You have to admit that it's a remarkable place. The Beverly Hillbillies connection is interesting. I used to watch them on our b&w TV when I was a kid -- kind of dating myself there.

I think I still have the earlier CSN album (without Y), but although this one was better I never bought it because a friend taped it for me.

Love that album. I have that and several more. They were my faves in high school. Saw them in concert years ago.

Loved that show. I saw Pippin I believe it was on Broadway and Granny was in it. Years later I took my daughter to see it at a regional theater in Connecticut and Micky Dolenz (sp? of the Monkeys was in it.) Dating myself too. 😎

Yes, I miss all those old shows -- Beverley Hillbillies, original Star Trek, Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock, etc. There's too much "reality" and too many cop shows on TV now, which is why I don't watch it much any longer.

Anybody remember a show called "Circus Boy"? It featured a young Mickey Dolenz and a not-young Noah Beery Jr.

My cable provider has a few channels that are dedicated to showing old re-runs of those classic shows....when I have nothing better to do, I do find comfort in them.  Reminds me of the days of laying about watching those shows instead of doing school work!  Good thing I had photography to turn to when real life happened!!

Thanks to PBS and Netflix I'm completely hooked on all sorts of British mystery/police shows.  Our ISP/TV provider also has an oldies channel with stuff going back all the way to The Honeymooners. I never watch those reality shows, I much prefer "fiction" (LOL - should I say fiction that admits what it is)

Yep. Me too. Not just British though - there are some great American ones too.  I love this new series genre (not sure what to call it) that has made popular by Netflix, where a whole season or even a number of seasons form an ongoing story. It allows for slower development  of plots and characters than movies which have only a few hours to get the story across - stuff like Fargo (the best IMO, related to the original movie by the Minnesota accents and brilliant plots and acting), Breaking Bad, Ozark, and loads more. The BBC has made some excellent series as well - Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders to name two. The danger is binge watching, as Netflix often release a whole season at once and they can be hard to put down.

 

As for the oldies, I have been having an Alfred Hitchcock mini-season this week: Rear Window and Vertigo so far the last two nights. Tonight intending to watch Psycho which I haven't seen in years. I love the cinematography and photography.

 

And I love being able to choose from a vast range of movies and TV series.

Don’t forget Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. Almost changed me from being a bird lover. (Not really).

Just wondering- how do you distinguish the two yourself?

Yes. Brilliant movie. Not sure if it is available at the moment on the services I have but I will keep an eye out for it.

I love Alfred Hitchcock and have seen all his other movies and love the TV show, but I have never been able to sit through The Birds in its entirety. You are braver than I am Betty!

 

I have also watched a lot of Canadian, Irish, Spanish, and Russian TV on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Since Hollywood dominated the TV  and motion picture industries for so long, it is just so wonderful to see shows from different cultures. We've always gotten a lot of British TV via PBS,  but all these others are relatively new to me. I've always loved British TV, especially the mystery/cop shows, and one thing I always liked was that their characters, especially the women, look like real people - rather than inappropriately dressed models. I can't imaging NYPD detective showing the amount of cleavage our American TV cops do LOL. Vera is one of my current faves but so many of the earlier seasons cost more than the subscription to watch, something, I can't bring myself to pay for.

I love movies/series about New York. Too many to mention. I love the accent. As well as Hitchcock I have several Martin Scorsese movies to watch at the moment. I have only been there once back in 1980, leaving the day John Lennon was murdered, which is why the date sticks in my mind.

Is it me? - or has this thread completely lost it's way - and the contributors drifted off into flights of fantasy??
