The Golden Girls.
This turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise.
Iain Armitage does a good job of capturing Sheldon's mannerisms, as do Zoe Perry and Raegan Revord as younger versions of the mother and sister we've already seen on The Big Bang Theory. Brother Georgie seems much as Sheldon describes him but his supposedly eidetic memory seems less accurate about his father, who doesn't seem nearly as bad as he says, and Meemaw, who doesn't seem nearly as good.
M*A*S*H and The Golden Girls.
The Streets of San Francisco, "Dead Air," OAD Thurs. Nov. 13, 1975 on ABC; this w/the late, great Larry Hagman (yes, our very own J.R., before he was J.R.!) as arrogant S.F. radio host Terry Vine; IMO, it's Larry as that arrogant radio host (his show-within-a-show was "Vine, Women and Song," on fictional station KYOL, FM 93) that makes this a very watchable show
(Screenshots from this episode within fourth-season, first-volume release, Disc 3; also part of condensed Streets all-in-one)
The Streets of San Francisco
‘Allo ‘Allo & Are You Being Served?
Porridge series 3.
At some point during the 70s Larry seems to have started to make a change from his sitcom schtick of I Dream of Jeannie and The Good Life to more dramatic, even sinister roles, nicely setting him up for the JR role to come.
See his episodes of Medical Center and The Name of the Game.
The Handmaid's Tale (season 2)
For me, the relationship between June and Serena really became the centrepiece this season. In fact, I'm not sure that the latter has not become the more compelling character, with Yvonne Strahovski in a sense expanding on her Rene Carpenter from The Astronaut Wives Club.
I am frustrated, though, by the lack of information about Gilead itself. It's difficult to put together a coherent backstory from the disjointed tidbits in the flashbacks.
Law & Order.
Dynasty - season 9 (episode 9 & 10)
The amazingly creepy last episodes of the amazingly creepy "Taboo".
