    We're still working from home full time, but my wife and I are rewatching Psych, and then plan to rewatch Seinfeld. Independently, I'm rewatching T.J. Hooker thanks to FETV.
    Any other suggestions?

    I was going to start a topic on what people suggest to watch during 'quarantine'.

    I've been watching Bob's Burgers and Veep because it's currently free. I might rewatch The Wire as it's also free on HBO Whatever App. (How many do they need? They will have at least 3 next month.)

    My husband watches Perry Mason (1950s) and The Lone Ranger on FETV. REALLY old shows.

    From what I recall, one of the bonus features stated that the Network was concerned that you actually have to pay attention to the show to get the humor, and they didn't think people could just sit and watch it.

    We’re skipping through and watching the better episodes from the first few seasons.

    Never saw nuBSG, so I'm watching on COMET TV, which started at the beginning on Monday 4/6. Two episodes in a row starting at 8 PM Eastern time. It streams for free on their website, if it's not on a local broadcast channel in your area.

    Quantum Leap started the same day, so I've caught a few eps. I've also caught their continuing runs of Stargate SG-1 (which also just started over) and Babylon 5 (now in season 4).

    If you like cheesy horror, you might want to check out Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

    I recently watched the first two installments of the show, The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler. These were the two made-for-tv movies. Both are very entertaining. The tv series episodes are ok. The show only had one season. You can watch any of them on You Tube.

    Don't confuse Kolchak with Kojak though. :)

    I started a re-watch of Homicide the other day and a delayed birthday present arrived today: Chuck. I don't like binging shows though so it will take awhile to get through them.

    I'm watching Stargate SG-1 for the first time. Depending on how long the lockdown goes, when I'm done with Stargate I might rewatch Orphan Black.

    Did you just start? I love Stargate end of season 1 through 6 is good and the end of 8 and season 10 are fun.

    On the other hand, during the 70s when it was on the air, some people would claim my late father resembled the TV detective. They dressed similarly; both wore snappy fedoras and like Telly Savalas, my father was bald as a cue ball. Co-workers would occasionally tease him by placing lollipops on his desk (working for Housing & Urban Development). I got some free candy that way.

    Finishing a rewatch of Almost Human, the one season buddy cop/android drama starring Karl Urban & Michael Ealy. The chemistry between the two was its greatest asset. Available on the Amazon owned IMDBTV which is free with ads, and can be watched online using a web browser. Prime Video subscribers can view it over the PV app on streaming boxes/sticks.
