2020 Viewing

I may write in more detail about some of the stuff I watched last year—undecided. But meanwhile, here’s a list of all the vintage episodic TV digested during those long 2020 months of deadly viruses and government scum placing everyone under house arrest.

(And, of course, there is much vintage episodic TV being digested during the unfolding long 2021 months of deadly viruses and government scum placing everyone under house arrest… but more on that later.)

2020 complete viewings…

Hawaii Five-O seasons 1-12 (DVD)
The Twilight Zone seasons 1-5 (Blu-ray)
Night Gallery seasons 1-3 (DVD)
The Outer Limits seasons 1-2 (DVD)
Alfred Hitchcock Presents seasons 1-4 (DVD)
Peaky Blinders series 3 (Blu-ray) (token non-vintage item!)
The Abbott & Costello Show seasons 1-2 (download)
Adventures of Superman seasons 1-4 (DVD)

And much less completely…

Dragnet various 1950s episodes (DVD)
Doctor Who various Hartnell & McCoy episodes (DVD)
Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans season 1 various episodes (DVD)

Quite a few films were viewed too, but perhaps most notably, the original James Bond films from Dr No through to Live and Let Die, on Blu-ray. Sadly, the great one, Sean Connery, passed away halfway through this… he had a good innings, but he’ll be missed (and had been missed from the screens since 2003).

More ramblings & viewing lists soon! (Maybe.)

  1. Just had a look at my December viewing, as listed on Letterboxd: 14 movies, stretching from 1935 (Crime and Punishment) to 1965 (The Naked Prey), plus a rather odd 1978 entry from the Children’s Film Foundation (Sammy’s Super T-Shirt). Heavy slant towards gritty realism (Brute Force, Force of Evil) and classic noir (The Killers, The Blue Dahlia).
