Given the time range of some of these shows, I've placed a "C" next to things I watched as a child, but probably wouldn't watch now on a bet.

And I do have one question for Time/CNN - Where in the HECK are Babylon 5 and Doctor Who?

Meanwhile, Victoria and her boyfriend came over with a bucket of chicken to watch movies today - we were going to watch Dawn of the Dead followed by Shawn of the Dead, but alas she'd borrowed the latter and forgot to bring it over so instead of the zombies we watched Hot Fuzz which does to cop action movies what Shawn does to zombie movies.  Then we watched most of season two of Robot Chicken.  I was going to put on Guidolon The Giant Space Chicken next but we ran out of time so I loaned it to her instead.   (It's also on You Tube fwiw.)   Much silly fun was had.

I should probably check Zap2It and find out when that's on and watch it, myself. I tend to either be on the computer doing something or off doing something else and probably wouldn't even notice when Dr. Who and Eureka were on if Nicolai didn't make a point of reminding me half an hour before.

And FWIW I still miss That Was The Week That Was.

Aha - Zap2It says the next ep locally is 11AM Monday. No wonder I haven't noticed it. Must watch tomorrow.
