Since I subscribed to streaming tv, I've been watching different programs folks have recommended, or that I'd gotten interested in.
I've watched all of the Portlandia episodes, and really enjoyed them.
And yesterday, I finished all the rebooted Dr. Who episodes. So I started on the classic episodes.
There are maybe four or five episodes on the service with the first doctor, and boy is he creepy; but he really doesn't seem to dominate the screen the ways the rebooted doctors do. I started into the second doctor; I'm afraid he reminds me of Moe in the Three Stooges, so I keep expecting him to smack one of the sidekicks.
Color and better special effects in the rebooted version make a big difference. I wonder what the heck people thought of the originals right off. But then, I also wonder that about The Prisoner, which confused the heck out of me as much as it fascinated me when I accidentally found it on tv as a teenager.
Meanwhile, watching one of the last of the #11 episodes, which was sad ("The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe"), I went to wipe my eye (which, you know, had gotten a speck of dust in it!), and popped out my contact by mistake. And lost it. Doh. Fortunately, I have an old set, so I put the contact from the old set to soak over night, and used my glasses.
But it did get me to thinking. I think in 33 years (about) of wearing contacts, I've lost maybe two lenses.
One I lost at home, and then (after I got a replacement) it was in the dryer, sparkling in the lint.
One I lost in a swimming pool (because I thought I'd been told that they'd stay on. They didn't. Don't try that at home).
If I've lost others, I don't remember doing so.
Meanwhile, what tv series should I think about watching (that's available streaming), or even relatively recent films?
