Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone, small town cop.
vanity ^ | 5/20/2012 | GunsAndBibles

Posted on 05/20/2012 9:16:08 AM PDT by GunsAndBibles

It's difficult to find quality entertainment on Netflix streaming. Here's three Tom Selleck movies that, in my opinion, qualify: Jesse Stone, Night Passage / Jesse Stone - Stone Cold / Jesse Stone - Death in Paradise. Great entertainment, no PC agenda.

I am going to check these out via torrent download - thanks for the leads. I noticed Dark Shadows has a fanatical following!

Try this one, “ The Conspirator”

It factually follows the military tribunal trial of Mary Surratt as it actually happened, which was a travesty of justice. It shows how absolute power, absolutely corrupts the constitution.

Is tonight on CBS soon enough? Or was your question tongue in cheek?

Believable?

Tom Selleck IS Jesse Stone. Stone character created by the late, great mystery writer, Robert B. Parker. (also the creator of the Spencer character).

The newer JS movies are not based on the Parker books as there were only a few - unlike the Spencer books. So far the quality hasn’t dropped off IMO.

She calls him. In fact I don’t recall Jesse ever calling Jenn. She can’t move on. He drinks to forget the past but she won’t let him.

I usually buy Selleck. Amazon has the first six Jesse Stones available here http://www.amazon.com/Collection-Remorse-Change-Passage-Paradise/dp/B003VIWSA8/ref=sr_1_9?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1337541725&sr=1-9

Innocents Lost is not one of the six, nor this new one.

And Jesse Stone’s sidearm is a Colt M1911A1, just like Thomas Magnum carried.

My advice is to avoid The Affair altogether. All small-town southerners are ignorant, unbathed hicks — unless they’re black; then they’re noble heroes, horribly oppressed by the evil white folk.

He even goes so far as to attribute Edmund’s Burke’s “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil ...” quotation to Martin Luther King. Guess that will make him more popular with his lib cocktail party buds and gals.

Is that Selleck’s character on the police show? If so, he would be required to carry an issue weapon, versus a personal one.

If you like Tom Selleck watch him in Ike: Countdown to D-Day which is also available on instant play on Netflix. It is about the 90 days leading up to D-day and Selleck makes a great Ike, he is even partially bald to add to the realism. I thought it was worth watching. Showed up the enormous ego that Montgomery had.

Supernatural and Sons of Anarchy are two series I like. Plus the newer Doc Who. Everyone has already mentioned Jesse Stone, all of which I have enjoyed.

If a person likes the older movies and searches diligently you can find quite a few movies that are worth watching on the instant Play. Most new movies don't make it to streaming.

To those of you that want to watch Dark Shadows the first part, before Barnabas, are on six volumes(4 disks, 9 episode per disk) on disk. Starting with the first collection that Barnabas shows up in there are four collections( 9 episodes per collection) that are on Instant play, the rest of the collections you have to send for on disk(4 disks, 9 episodes per disk). For a while you couldn't get the disk but you can now.

My wife and I watched the show tonight. We both love this type of quality show. It was very entertaining. We love the Dog that is not his but seems to own Jesse. To bad that Selleck says this is the last one he will be doing. Says CBS is not keen on these two hour shows. CBS is crazy.

Love, love, love Tom Selleck! Whenever he’s on TV I tell my kids...”hey your Dad’s on TV.” Then I have to say “okay, maybe he’s not your Dad, but I’m sure he would have been if we had met.” Actually, my late husband did resemble Mr. Selleck...mustache and all...and did understand if Tom Selleck showed up at my door, as much as I loved him, I had no choice but to go with him. Besides his good looks, the attraction is also his conservative/libertarian views!

I hope you didn't waste your time. That was one of the worst productions I can remember. It was nothing but a series of strained one liner conversations and it ended with no ending ...unless there's a part two that they didn't announce.

very bad

Well, I watched about half of it before I fell asleep. My husband tried to fill me in and the rest, but I need to see it again before I come to any conclusion as to its worth. You are right on the cryptic dialogue, however. Did his “phone wife” ever reappear (by phone) on this episode?

The dog looks like a twin to mine, except that mine has a little more white on his muzzle. Golden Retrievers have a wide range of “looks”, but his and mine could be brothers — size, color, head, etc. His is a little curlier in his ears. That’s the only difference.

Don't be surprised if your husband can't fill you in. It was an incomprehensible script. A sniper appeared out of no where following Jesse on the road. Then he appeared at the end and Jesse killed him in what I guess was a set up to kill Jesse. This thing reminded me of a David Lynch serial called "Twin Peaks" that lost it's plot line and disappeared back in the 90's.

No 'phone wife' this time and it bugs me that he can't show his dog some affection.

What did he finally do with the Border Collie that was left homeless when his owner was hanged, or hanged himself?

I’ve forgotten how he got the Golden. He had a different dog in the beginning that died. His GF got him to take the Golden when somebody was killed...I just don’t remember. That was in a different story.

There was no mention that I saw of the Border Collie after the first scene. But, geez, there was no conclusion to most of what went on in this show. The young secretary, who actually planted the explosives when the dead police chief's car was serviced at "Hasty's" dealership (surely it wasn't Hasty).

That scene with him walking around the ship dropping his bag of money in different places then speeding away in a boat and leaving his Mercedes parked there was as incoherent as anything I can remember.

I think the producers thought a brooding Tom Sellick could carry the script no matter how bad it was.

Almost all brands have their versions of a smart TV. Ours happens to be a Vizio which has a wireless interactive connection to the Internet. Smart TV’s can also communicate with their manufacturer’s to get updates, apps and etc..

Smart TV’s can also be used for playing your own videos from Youtube and other venues. Live streaming of movies from Netflix, Hulaplus and such. If one desires can access Facebook, Yahoo, Flickr, Amazon, Skype, twitter, &C.
