    Default What older series or shows have you been watching since lockdown began?

    So, what older shows have you choosen or been able to revisit since lockdown began, are your rewatching or finally doing a complete watch?

    I've watched House MD, complete series over again, I own it on DVD but surprisingly there were a few minor episodes I'd missed.

    I've watched The Middle, pretty much through, Chuck, season 4 I'd missed somehow and I never guessed how many cameos where in that show until now, I'm watching LOST too, it has aged well as a series I think.

    I might go back to the beginning of Walking Dead but there's a lot of content I dont really care to repeat in that show actually, its good but some episodes I do think were gratuitous in their violence. Perhaps that may be the wrong word and I do think it was a more or less accurate depiction of how cruelty and sadism can become normative quickly in a traumatized and repeatedly retraumatized population. Although I kind of dont want to repeatedly watch that kind of thing. I do like some of the seasons, although they are later ones, of Fear The Walking Dead, for how they sought to build a counter narrative, a strong one, about helping versus hurting others.

    Some of these shows, on he second watch have a kind of comforting/nostalgia factor, others are just really good shows, what do you think? Are you rewatching anything older? Are you paying attention to it all second time around or is it just background noise and focal point (like a fireplace would have been in the past)?

    I've been watching "Friends" because I own the whole series and figured seeing charming, cute, funny people and hearing laugh tracks would probably be good for my brain. I splurgingly ordered X-files to watch next because it's really funny to me and spooky to boot.

    Well, I started before lockdown, but Community. I'm on Season 5 now; season 4 was rough times but not as bad as I feared. Season 5 is pretty good, although there were massive feels when Troy left.

    My favorite episode so far is the one about the professor of conspiracy theories; it was delightfully convoluted.

    I just finished rewatching Fringe (for the umpteenth time). I dabbled in Little House on the Prairie (and was surprised it held my interest enough to binge half a season, there's more nostalgic value there than I'd anticipated). And I watched Flight of the Conchords for the first time, which is really funny and I can't believe I hadn't heard about it sooner. And a few episodes of Columbo.

    I've watched Arrested Development, X-files, Mighty Boosh, and the original Prisoner series too - but they're more part of my regular routine than they are quarantine exception.

    Professor Professorson? That is one of the best episodes in all of comedy.

    I've seen your mom for a series of lovely evenings, but I would rather refer to her as ripe.
