Cool. Marathons are fun. :D

FYI, Simon & Simon seasons 1-3 (most episodes) are also available on Hulu Plus, and most of those episodes are also available on free Hulu.

Unfortunately my dialup don't know how to Hulu, Youtube, Vimeo, mostly it :arrow: aggravates :!:

I almost didn't bother knowing so many around here have DVD sets, high speed internet, but for those that may want to sit at home and enjoy the great and plentiful commercials with a scosh of S&S mixed in... doesn't get any better :roll:

It is very fun for sure, especially with S&S, being from San Diego myself, watching the opening credits as they drive around SD, freeways I recognize, the Coronado bridge - very cool :D Jeannie Wilson wasn't hard to watch either, can't believe she's 68 years young. Wow, time sure has flown by.

I was hoping for a few episodes this week, nothing :(

One of these days I want to see AJ's house, just like I want to visit Pahonu. Imagine my surprise when I first learned that his house is in Venice Beach, not San Diego. :)

Yeah, I don't actually feel S&S is at all a San Diego themed show anymore, (though I did originally, before there were ways to find out). S&S was only in San Diego for season 1, not sure how many episodes either, some, all.

The show was fictionally set in San Diego throughout its run. They normally filmed a few scenes a year in San Diego as well as using some stock footage of the city. Most of the show was filmed in LA, but it was supposed to be San Diego. In general, LA landscape looked similar enough that it rarely made a difference. The San Diego filmed scenes were usually at places immediately recognizable to a native such as myself, which was very cool.

Well, it was disappointing for me to learn the show started off in Florida, for a few episodes - San Diego, then, as usual winds up in L.A. - kinda sounds familiar - San Diego Chargers of Carson, the Englewood Bolts! I did enjoy the opening scenes of the early episodes, really cool. I had hoped for some more S&S but nothing after the 8 ep marathon. Oh, I'm a native too, born at El Cajon Valley Hospital.

I am with you MagnumILWU!!!!!! I have already posted that even though I am a newbie and I will probably post it again. The only difference was I was in the Central Time Zone and the shows came on one hour earlier.

Also, if anyone knows of Simon and Simon reruns coming on any ATT-Uverse channels....please, please post a message...I will be forever grateful!!!
