Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I’m going with the Doctor Who: Tom Baker collection – while this season is a bit of a mixed bag (Horns of the Nimon, for example), on the other hand it’s got City of Death, which is an all-time classic.” Blaine says, “I’d also say the Doctor Who: Tom Baker collection is the best of the bunch, though I also remember Soapdish being a lot of fun.”

One reply

  1. Brian says:

    I’ll probably watch CSI: Vegas (I liked the original, at least when it started). I haven’t had the mental wherewithal to dive into Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale. I recorded Benjamin Franklin on PBS because I’m always down for more Ken Burns. Oh and Death on the Nile will also be watched as I love a good mystery and Murder on the Orient Express was very good.
