    "This sad man, this joke of a man, this man who could not outwit a used tea bag.... who is so pathetic he spent his Saturday nights sewing labels on his ship-issue condoms.... this man who is so stupid he even objects to his own defense..... This man is guilty only of being Arnold J Rimmer. That is his crime; it is also his punishment."

    Oh yeah!..... a list: 5 is seriously handicapping me; so, in no particular order:

    In Plain Sight

    The Unusual's

    S2 The Expanse

    S1 Lucifer

    S1 Penny Dreadful

    But if you asked me again tomorrow it would probably be 4-5 others.....

    Yes, I think it would take at least a top 20 to be able to do true justice to a list of my absolute favourite TV shows...

    Maybe 25.

    I also love Red Dwarf. My very last post on IMDb was...

    Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with. And I know that, given the choice, I probably wouldn't have chosen you as friends. But, I just want to say... that over the years I have come to regard you as... people... I met

    For those of you not "updated", my 84 year old Mum is living with us as she's just a bit too far beyond taking car of herself. So she and I watch TV together with me pausing to "explain & keep her current" every 15 min. or so. In honor of her presence, here is "The Mom List":

    Blue Bloods (she likes that it's a tight family with religious roots)
    Major Crimes (the best ensemble cast ever)
    In Plain Sight ("Mary" reminds her of me!)
    The Halcyon (hotel in London during the bombing... it was really well done)

    We struggle because I like Sci-Fi and she doesn't and I like things like PD and she doesn't.

    I'm going to shoot her "The Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" next but am pretty certain that she'll find Phryne waaaaay toooooo risque!

    Well, I suppose it's good that there's an Aussie TV show out there that's popular with an international audience.

    Besides NEIGHBOURS, that is.
