  1. Recommend Days of Heave, Diner and Buckaroo. I’m sure you’ll like them

    I loved Adam 12 too…on a sad note, from what I hear Martin Milner is suffering from Alzheimer’s these days and no longer recognizes anyone.

  2. Just discovered your site and enyoying it very much! Thanks!

    The Classic Albums series may be my favorite thing on Netflix. They are all very interesting. Of course DSOM is the top dog, but Zappa Apostrophe’/Overnight Sensation, Deep Purple Machine Head, and Rush 2112/Moving Pictures are very good as well!
