I seem to recall he had legal problems when he was young (payed his dues, got straight). Of course, the left's character assassins will likely go back to unsubstantiated claims he shoplifted or got to second base in middle school or some other garbage.

I remember FOX being a crazy powerhouse back in the late 80's. Not that all the shows were winners, but they had a ton of them. Tracy Ullman Show, Gary Shandling Show, Friday the 13rth the series, War of the Worlds, Star Trek TNG, Werewolf (remember that one?)....just all sorts of stuff across the spectrum.

Unsolved Mysteries on Pluto (Roku channel), loving all the throw back mysteries and Robert Stack as host. Some of the more mysterious stuff like weird creatures and UFO's still make the hair on my neck stand up!

And that theme music really gets stuck in your head!

I was watching this again last night and I was surprised to see an episode that had an unsolved death back in the late 80's had an update from 2014. I wonder if whoever owns UM updates them for whichever channel or service has them running? I know UM doesn't have new episodes NOW....and I think it finally went off the air sometime in the late 90's.

Behind a camera watching you!
Actually all reruns shows go through an editing process, which surprised me back when I worked in TV. They edit in the current commericals (for national broadcast with blank space for local commericals) So even though the shows are 20+ years old there is still a fair amount of producing that goes on.

Ahhh...but that's the problem with Roku. The commercials come on at a point that is NOT meant for commercials. You can see the obvious breaks, but the commercials come on at any point. All the time they'll be in the middle of a show and all the sudden commercials come on. Then when they are done, the show comes back and is actually rewinded a few seconds...so it just kicks back on.

It doesn't bother me, I assume they have the whole thing on automatic pilot so they don't have to pay someone to sit there and program them in in the right places.

I mean.. I don't think anything SJW or whatever is to blame.. the aforementioned gay black lady and her girlfriend was one very small plot point that was brought up in the 1st episode and like the 4th episode. It didn't play a big part, or was focused on, and in the end it was a bad person.

The EVIL BAD GUYS this season are Hispanic socialists or something.. and so-far there hasn't been any kind of big evil white guy behind it all.. so nothing wrong with that. It just.. I don't know. Feels smaller? Somehow by making the 'world' bigger, they made the story seem smaller. When they were "THE LAST SHIP" trying to save humanity, everything had a certain gravitas.. and now.. while again (due to plot) they're the last ship.. it's just not the same. Almost every episode has half the cast off ship doing things, which is fine.. but.. I dunno. It's just not gripping me.

Should have either ended with the plague being resolved or kept it being a thing. The last two seasons didn't need to happen.

Hey, having not watched more than that 10 minutes, and going off what you said, I could only assume.

I don't know a better name, but I think calling the show "The Last Ship" was a mistake. They were forced to keep up with that premise and come up with ridiculous reasons to keep making it happen.

Definitely.. I mean, it made sense in the beginning.. sorta.. like not one other ship managed to leave port in time? Ehh.. but whatever..

Caught up on FEAR THE WALKING DEAD from last season.. it.. wasn't terrible? Not great, of course, but not terrible. Morgan was a good get for that show, they killed off a lot of the people I didn't like, and added some cool/interesting new ones.

There was a new showrunner or whatever last season, and he did a lot of "interesting" things with the title sequence, the coloring, and other little tidbits. Half the show felt like you were watching it in Black & white.. but it was just very color depleted.. to kind of enhance the hopelessness of it all. Most of the season was a "road show" as well, where they were moving from place to place, instead of holed up somewhere (which is the death of any zombie show).

They teased Morgan going back to Alexandria/etc with the new crew, so that could be interesting if they combined the shows at some point.

It's still not what I wanted from the show, but I daresay it's been better than the main show for a bit now.
