This week, not many new series. On Sunday, we’re finally diving into the third season of an old TV series on disc. And Saturday remains Star Trek night. Our new series on Sunday turns out to be a hit, and I’ve managed to squeeze in a spot in our TV schedule for… a very old TV sitcom. And we’ll keep watching Bob Odenkirk on Monday night.

Perception is the series we’re watching instead of House now. This time, it’s about a professor of neuro-psychiatry who helps the FBI solve crimes. He himself has a condition that often causes him to have delusions. So, in a way, it’s somewhat in line with House but more thrilling. Or something like that. Different, at the very least. There are only three seasons, so we’ll probably get through it pretty quickly. And then there are plenty of other great series on our to-watch list.

Sitcoms in between

Finally, I’ve added Cheers to the mix! Cheers is still an enjoyable sitcom set in a bar. So, we often start our mornings at Paddy’s (Always Sunny) and end up with Sam at Cheers. It’s a completely different kind of humor, but still very enjoyable. It also provides a fascinating snapshot of the times, and I often find myself realizing that not much has changed in nearly 40 years. But well, that’s how it goes.

And on Sunday mornings, we’re slowly making our way through Perfect Strangers. It’s such a delightful, positive series, surprisingly well-crafted and well-written. Larry is happily living on his own when his cousin from Mypos comes to stay with him. Cousin Balki is experiencing the U.S. for the first time and has to adjust to the American way of life. Meanwhile, Larry has to adapt to how Balki lives his life. Lots of confusion, of course.
