Some of my earliest and fondest tv recollections involve Dobie Gillis. Dobie was a college student who worked part time at his dads grocery store. He had a girlfriend Gilda and a Beatnic friend Maynard G. Krebbs (pre Gilligans Island Bob Denver). It opened with a thoughtful statement and an image of Rodan's The Thinker. It seemed quite worldly and progressivly youth oriented. More episodes can be found on YT. I don't recall this going into reruns or just briefly after the initial run.

hbo has quietly stopped running a movie premiere on saturday at 8 which they have done since 1992. not sure how that fits into their streaming strategy.

wandavision on disney+ is starting to get interesting. anybody watching? this is the first show in the marvel pivot to streaming building on the world within the movies (mcu) unlike the earlier shows on abc and netflix that were lower budget and tangential at best to the primary plotting. obviously i am not steeped in marvel lore but its fun to piece it together as the reveals come as there is no shortage of people that have a better idea of whats going on and what it portends. as with basketball in particular where trade rumors and off court machinations have almost become more interesting than the actual games so to with shows like this where speculation based on deep mythologies come to dominate the conversation. hope i have ruined comic books by comparing it to sports for someone.
