Hill Street Blues

Hill Street Blues
Steven Bochco
6/6

 

 

I have been so lazy with the film watching as of late, except; I haven’t been so lazy! I’ve been busy watching the classic TV show Hill Street Blues, and this is my verdict:

  • Seasons 1-3: FANTASTIC! Some of the best TV there has ever been.
  • Seasons: 4-5: A very good cop show
  • Season 6 Episode 1-3: Signals the end of an era.

And then I bailed. Why tarnish a good memory with mediocrity?

Watch seasons one through three. Be a good person. And remember: Let’s be careful out there!

I will leave you with an excerpt.

The Man Who Knew Too Much [1934]

The Man Who Knew Too Much
Alfred Hitchcock
5/6

Something wonderful has happened in the realm of cinema since Hitch’s last outing. Or in the realm of digital transfer. Or both. In any case, this film looks about a million times better than the earlier ones.

Things have taken a turn content-wise as well. This feels much more like the later Hitchcock we all know and love. I’m almost allowing myself to hope we’re done with musicals and theater-adaptations.

Genesis: Live at Shepperton Studios [1973]

Live at Shepperton Studios
Genesis
6/6

I know I was supposed to binge watch all of Kevin Willmott’s movies, but I’d forgotten to buy #2.

*doh*

And then I got sick. So now I’m on the couch with this new old laptop with some Linux on it, meaning I had to get tearing free video to work.

*doh*

But I’m happy to report that getting tearing free video is much easier now than it was the last time I tried when it was impossible. Anyway, I have this bootleg in high quality version (in a sense) that I don’t know where I got. Luckily, it’s on the Youtube. It really is quite peak prog, even if it’s kinda fake—the audio is apparently sourced from a number of different recordings, from more than one night. No bother though—Armageddon in Nine Eighths still melts my brain.
