Old Style Shows

Batman Says:

“One more thing…”

Anyone remember that line? I do and it was actually one of my favorite shows. Peach and I are mystery show watchers, we love a good murder mystery, even funny ones (anyone remember “Clue”? Absolutely crazy funny! No one made a better Sherlock Holmes than Jeremey Brett, fit the role to a “T”. David Suchet in the indomitable “Perot” the quirky Belgian detective created by Agatha Christie, even more modern ones like “Morse” or “Inspector Lewis” and last but not least “Midsomer Murders” with Chief inspector Barnaby.

All of these we watch and re-watch until we can almost quote the entire show. Still, they bring us pleasure to see, because unlike “modern” tv, there is death and sex and drugs indicated in all of these, but they are done without over glorifying and being grotesque about it, you know someone was murdered, you know how, you just don’t have to deal with the gore.

Now, back to the start, the best “Detective” show for me has hands down has always been Peter Falk in the role as Lt. “Columbo”.

This show was unique in how it was done, you watch the crime, you know who commits it and why, but what you don’t know is how “Columbo” is going to figure it out, it’s almost at times as if you are drawn in so much that you begin to feel like the criminal and worry you are going to get caught. Don’t get me wrong, all the shows I mentioned are excellent, but with Columbo, you already know who did it, you just have to see how they get caught. To my knowledge not a lot of murder mysteries (none I can think of, but my old foggy memory can be a bit cantankerous) are written this way anymore. Takes, in my humble opinion, really good writing and acting to pull off a mystery and hold the audiences attention, keeping them on the edge of their seats, when the murderer is already known.

Anywho, Peach and I rediscovered Columbo again recently and are in murder mystery heaven watching the over 69 tv shows and 24 movies that were done for Columbo. So if you are bored, and or are tired of blood and gore and stupidity, find the Columbo series, I think you might like it better.

OpinionsĀ 

Batman says:

Most people comment or post blogs (I believe) to express an opinion, or to give some type of information (good, bad, useful ect) that they feel others might like, want, or need. There are those that are trying to make money at it, but I think the others are the majority. They then wait and see others reactions.

My pretty girl “Peach” for example, with the calming ways, bible and religious knowledge, and the Grace she shows, could blog and make money without doubt. Peach isn’t like that, she shares verses, inspirational stuff, and anything to help anyone find God and find their way, she does this without asking for anything, just the type person she is. I read the “opinions” posted to her blogs and I’m not amazed to see how many people she reaches. Our little blog thing here is fairly new, not large on followers, but I’m sure with her posting it will grow crazily.

And now to me (squeamish, prudish, anti-fun, anti-hunters may as well stop reading right now) the goofball of this 30+ (going stronger daily) relationship. I’m more scatterbrained about this blog stuff. I just blurt out random things that honestly I’m amazed that anyone reads (you have to Peach, it’s in the contract). I am an outdoorsman, I trap, I hunt I fish I photograph, and I do it all with Peach. She has always been a part of everything I do, willingly too! and enjoys my silliness as much as I do. I find being out in Gods wilds one of the most relaxing and peaceful things one can do. Take trapping for instance, you find a place that looks like it has the type animal your looking for, you scout it, set up some cameras maybe, then you set your trap trying to fool wiley creatures. Trapping has been around forever, and to me it is fun and relaxing, alleviating stress and worries all the while enjoying being outdoors in Gods creation.


Here comes Ā the opinions, I’m sure, everyone has a few, and we all give them freely without being asked most times. This is the price we pay for blogging, and it’s ok. If you don’t like my posts that’s ok, if you don’t like me because I hunt, trap, fish,etc that’s ok. The world is full of different types of people, in my full time job I see most at their worst, some at their best and others in between. I have learned not to judge (Gods privilege, not mine) anyone based on appearance, likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. Here in blog land (small island overcrowded with people) if I give a comment to a post it’s not hateful, judgemental, or condescending (at least I try not to be, we are human and all have faults). It’s not my place to convince someone with a difference of opinion who is right. Funny thing is, it’s not anyone’s place, blogging, with the exception of the money making ones, are, I think, just supposed to be sharing stuff, maybe I’m to old fashioned.


Anyways I posted this to let you have a peek at what batman does when not at his full time job, he spends it with Peach, outdoors as much as possible, admiring Gods handiwork.

Y’all tag along if ya want, should be a fun ride (at the least you can laugh at my goof ups).

Have a great day everyone

God bless ya
