Binge Watch This Post!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve Morons! I hope all of you are looking forward to a relaxing day with family and friends. I will be hosting both tomorrow, along with several local Morons. I can tell you, I'd rather spend time with Morons than with the finest people on Earth.

So, imagine that it's tomorrow after dinner. You sink back into your armchair with a groan, fighting a Tryptophan induced stupor. Deciding to watch TV, you pick up the remote, but there's nothing good on TV. What do you do? Well, you might come back here and see how people answered tonight's question: What are some obscure or semi-obscure television series that you can recommend? I'll start out with a few:

Corner Gas and Corner Gas Animated. Set in the fictional town of Dog River (played in the series by Rouleau, Saskatchewan), this screamingly funny Canadian sitcom follows the lives of a group of small town residents on the Canadian prairie. You'll never believe how much stuff happens in a place where there is not a lot going on. The live action series aired in 2004 and ran for 6 seasons and a movie, they just wrapped up a 4 season animated edition that is just as funny as the first one. It should be, it features the same cast and writers, with the exception of actress Janet Wright, who passed away in 2016. In a touching tribute, since the animated show isn't anchored to the reality of real life Rouleau, they put a statue of “Dog River founder Jane T Wright” in the town square. A nice homage.

If you ever got to Rouleau (I've been there, someone asked if I would help tear down a barn, and who wouldn't want to do that?) you can see the gas station and The Ruby, the principle sets from the show. There are not many other traces of “Dog River” left, recently the “Dog River” grain elevator burned down. Iconic 'Corner Gas' grain elevator destroyed in early morning fire

Men At Work From 2012, this sitcom lasted for 3 seasons, following 4 20-something guys navigation the dating and work scene in Chicago. I found it to be well written and quite funny, the show did a real good job of capturing the verbal sparing that goes one when guys are just being guys. It kind of slid off the radar when star Danny Masterson was accused of rape, last I heard the trial was still dragging on.

The Great Indoors lasted for one season, it was about a Field And Stream type magazine that goes completely digital, bringing Gen-X head writer and outdoorsman Jack back to the office where he has to deal with a staff comprised of whiny Gen-Z types. The characters started out as total stereotypes, but they did start to develop as the season went on, and the writers made sure that the zingers and growth went both ways. I thought it deserved another season, but whatcha gonna do?

Anyhow, those are my picks, what do you guys recommend?

14 Hmmm...
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (with Elijah "Frodo Baggins" Wood) is a pretty interesting show. Season 1 was really good. Season 2 got super woke, but it did have some interesting bits in it. I think it was canceled before they could have Season 3, which is kind of a shame because they set up something very interesting as a cliffhangar.

40 How do the Morons like Florida? We are exiting Calizuela, and its moved up on our list.

I would prefer New Hampshire, but their rent like property tax is disturbing. My wife who grew up in the mountains of eastern europe really wants to avoid snow.

Thought about Washington State. Too much rain. And crazed libs. So now we are only looking at conservative states. Idaho (not enough future job opportunities for the kids). Tennessee (much better, but smack dab in the middle of the US). Texas (too damned flat!).

Rat Patrol holds up just for the vehicles alone.

To mix storylines, I present the following:

A friend during my college days, owned a SWAT Box (remember that show) truck. For jollies we'd liberate a few of the water based fire extinguishers form other dorms, and drive around campus...some times off campus, and hose down the unwary.
We called it Rat Patrolling. Slowly cruise the street, throw open the back doors and let fly on the unsuspecting targets.
No one really complained unless we were out and about in the deep North Country winters. And yes, we refilled, recharged, and returned the extinguishers...we weren't heathens.

I declined but he still autographed a picture which I have hanging in my den. He was my cowboy hero back in the 50s.

The original series follows the books pretty well. I started watching the new series and the characters were nothing like the books. Maybe made it 15 minutes and quit.

I liked Falling Skies, until they started running out of ideas around season three or so. I still finished the series, though. Another one that came out around the same time was Terra Nova, a pretty good show with a season one cliffhanger ending, and canceled before season two.

214 Anybody ever Father Ted?
One of my favorite of the British comedy shows. I really didn't like a lot of them - as much as I was told I would.

But Father Ted is a classic, my favorite of the 90's. Too bad it was so short lived and Dermot Morgan (one of the leads) passed literally at the wrap party. I could watch those over and over. When you hear Critical Drinker talk about Craggy Island, that's what he's referencing.

Another favorite from the 80's is The Young Ones. Father Ted took some of the surrealism from that show, but Young Ones was way the hell out there. Also short - but that's probably what made them all so good.

I believe they actually tried an American version or were dangerously close to making one. That would have fallen flatter than the American version of Fawlty Towers. Some shows simply cannot translate to American audiences or the USA in general.

Oh yeah, one more but a tad less obscure was Absolutely Fabulous. In a way, that was related to The Young Ones. That show was a success, and had lots of related shows.

226 For streaming, I liked "Stan Against Evil," a schlock horror comedy.

Stan -- for whom the term "curmudgeon" was coined --was the sheriff of a town plagued with supernatural boogums. Emphasis on "was" -- he was forced to retire after he flipped out at his wife's funeral. Now he and the new sheriff have to protect the town.

This is a scanty description; I hope to get this to post.

In my former life (one of them) the one I was telling Jack Straw about last night - one of the fantastic bits was meeting the great surviving animation artists, or their families. I was tasked with going down and pitching the Wards, and it went as well as expected. I got to see so much of Jay's work and that of Chris Hayward. As a kid, I thought the world of Fractured Flickers, Crusader Rabbit, Fractured Fairy Tales, Peabody's Improbable History and of course Rocky and Bullwinkle. Not everybody gets to have El Pollo Loco with the Wards surrounded by production cells and drawings from R&B.

War of 1812, New Orleans where a present-day British colonel tried to warn his old regiment about it and died along with his 19th century regimental comrades.

It used footage from the Yul Brenner pirate Jacques Lafitte movie with Charlton Heston as Andrew Jackson.

316 Thriller -- the one hosted by Boris Karloff, not the British import. Okay when they were doing crime stories, but when they started mining the horror pulps for material they were just wonderful. Episodes like The Hungry Glass, The Weird Tailor, Papa Benjamin, Pigeons from Hell, and Yours Truly Jack the Ripper (lotta Robert Bloch in there) still hold up nicely.

Combat -- not obscure but wow does it still deliver. Not just war action stories, either -- check out an episode called A Cry in the Ruins, which is one of the best hours of television I've seen.

338 Moone Boy is a great Irish sitcom that ran for 3 seasons and is on Hulu. It's about a 12 year old boy from a working class family and his imaginary friend. It takes place from 1989-1992. The humor is very much like an Irish version of Malcolm in the Middle except he has sisters instead of brothers. All of the characters are fantastic, and even the jerk characters manage to somehow be lovable. Just an outstanding show!!

I'm on my second run through now.
Plot is a fake psychic announces he will use his "powers" to help catch a notorious serial killer but the serial killer murders the psychics' family. He then connives his way onto the police team hunting the killer.
Good situations, good use of mentalist tricks and cons. Good little jokes and jibes (sometimes a little over contrived but still enjoyable). Occasionally they come up with a very unusual take on a character even some disturbing moments. The series was unusually honest in the writing with the climax of the primary plot arc (you'll know it when you see it)..

More obscure -- a funny 1-season show called Tenspeed and Brownshoe with Ben Vereen as a con man and Jeff Goldblum as a private-eye wannabe. Every show had maniac voice-overs of Goldblum reading pulp private eye novels chronicling the adventures of Mark Savage, Private Eye (made up for the show).

352 Salty, don't get me started on Star Trek plot holes. But a lot of the strange problems the crew gets into are plot necessities, not physics or time sequence impossibilities-type plot holes.

Why is the transporter always unavailable when a shuttle craft is stranded on a planet? Why are shuttle craft forgotten about when the transporter is busted? When the transporter is busted, why don't they move ops to Transporter Room B or C or D or...(in one episode multiple transporter rooms are mentioned).

Enough for now.

360 358 And if you liked Rocky & Bullwinkle (and who wouldn't?) don't forget George of the Jungle. If memory serves, three cartoons per episode: one for the inept-Tarzan George, a race car driver named Tom Slick the All-American Good Guy and Clean Liver, and finally Super Chicken. Worth binge watching just for Super Chicken's titanic battle against the Living Toupee. They don't make 'em like that any more.

362 I don't own "Soap," but that show was a howler.

Regarding "Quark": Richard Benjamin. Summer replacement series. Lasted only six episodes.

I wonder how well it holds up.

Much more recently -- "NewsRadio." Hilarious.

Westerns? "Have Gun Will Travel" takes the pot. I would love to have seen the hotel lobby set.

363 We didn't watch TV when I was growing up so now I'm able to watch Gensmoke, Bonanza, The Rifleman, Tales of Wells Fargo, and I love Have Gun Will Travel. I've gotten to watch Perry Mason, which my husband can't believe I've never seen. We had a color tv but our parents wouldn't allow us to watch anything.

364 There have been some fun and interesting hints and suggested already posted, but I would to with the following: (1) Combat! (great action series with Vic Morrow; great opening), and (2) All in the Family (yes, AITF. I've been watching it again for the first time in 40+ years. LMAO. More revelevant than ever

365 Pelosi's new mansion? For "beachfront" read "beachhead."

Get a neighborhood watch organized immediately.

366 Britcoms!

"Yes, Minister" and "Yes, Prime Minister" were eerily prescient. The Deep State before it got deadly.

I thought Sir Humphrey should have been hanged for treason.

367 6 seasons and a movie? Sounds familiar.

I'll throw in "Chuck" and (the first two seasons, anyway) of "Community."

368 For me sometimes serious can be good, but I mostly like comedic storylines and shows that aren't afraid to mock themselves-so I agree with the recommendation Brisco County for example. I also recommend the first few years of Glen Gordon Caron's "Moonlighting." The pre tough guy Bruce Willis is great as a fast talking con man, and Caron, or whoever, coaxed some very funny acting from Cybill Shepard essentially making fun of herself-a bit like Raquel Welch in the Musketeers films. The dialogue was at times outstanding, and Caron did a great job of integrating music with the story.

369 Also, even for those who are cold to the show generally, one episode of Star Gate SG1 was great. An alien (played by the ubiquitous Willie Garson) has had his memory of SG1 erased, but some memories leak through and he uses them to write a low budget TV show called "Wormhole Extreme." Part of the Stargate episode's backdrop involves shooting an episode of Wormhole Extreme with all kinds of callbacks to SG1 episodes, but the best part is the closing supposed "outtakes" shown at the end of the episode. There, among other riffs on the show and series, we have the two DeLuise brothers (Peter-writer and director of SG1) and David (playing the "star" of Wormhole Extreme) arguing about whether or not Wormhole Extreme is a real TV series-"Does my agent know Wormhole Extreme isn't a real show?" There's a followup episode with Garson's alien going to the Stargate crew for ideas for a TV series. One idea pitched by Claudia Black's character is the Farscape TV series she starred in with Ben Browder, another of the Stargate cast-she also pitches the Wizard of Oz and other well known stories to Garson as episode ideas.

370 Best comedy series I've encountered recently was 'The Good Place' w/ Ted Danson and Kristen Bell. Funniest and smartest show I've seen in a long time.

371 I'm amazed how much writers packed into a 1/2 hour show back in the day.
See "Have Gun Will Travel" or "Sea Hunt".

But I've been binge watching "Lie To Me" with Tim Roth recently.
It is like a body language expert except it focuses on the face, mostly.
Without the commercials, many old shows are 100% better.

372 Beverly Hillbillies. Great show, plus best theme song ever.
Also loved Maverick, but only the James Garner episodes.
Still think the greatest show ever was Hill Street Blues. Went on too long, but those first few seasons were like nothing that I'd ever seen on TV before. Almost every good show since owes it a debt...

373 For anime -

1. Cowboy Bebop
2. Ghost in the Shell (season 1)
3. Darker than Black

374 4. Ajin

You can only get Ajin on Netflix, but I watched it through twice before the Cuties situation. One of the best anime series I've ever seen.

375 Last of the Summer Wine, which ran on the BBC from 1973 to 2010.

376 Northern Exposure, about the medical system ObamaCare destroyed that both paid off new doctor's med school bills AND allowed people to thrive in the frozen isolated parts of Alaska.

Due North, Paul Gross when he was hunky.
