Swinging With The Finkels is the story of what happens after the honeymoon ends and couples get bored with married life.
Having met at University, American born Ellie (MANDY MOORE) and her husband Alvin (MARTIN FREEMAN) are several years into their marriage. The heady sparks of lust and fun have sadly faded and they’re left with the day to day normality of their everyday life.
Advised by best friends Peter (JONATHAN SILVERMAN) and Janet (MELISSA GEORGE), who are having their own marital problems, Ellie and Alvin are desperate to 'spice things up'.
Having explored various options, including an unfortunate incident with a cucumber as witnessed by Ellie's Grandfather (played by comedy legend JERRY STILLER), Ellie hits upon the brilliant idea to mix things up with another couple - to have a 'consensual affair' within the confines of the marriage.
The couple embarks on finding the ideal couple and begins to interview a plethora of perverse and quirky swingers. They finally settle on what seem to be the perfect couple - played by the well known UK media personality Angus Deayton and the hilarious Daisy Beaumont. A night of insanity and hilarity follow.
Filled with brilliantly observed truths about men and woman, and some side achingly funny set pieces, “Swinging With The Finkels” is a romantic comedy with a unique edge that anyone that has ever been in a relationship will relate to.

This four-part documentary looks at some of the programs and stars from the early days of U.S. television. The segment on late night focuses on the vaudevillian origins of the genre and the Tonight Show, with its three early stars: Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson. The episode on sitcoms focuses on the contribution of several classics from the 1950s and 60s including The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show and the Dick van Dyke Show. The segment on variety shows focuses first on the Ed Sullivan Show and the hosts ability to book acts that the audience wanted to see. Others include Milton Berle's show, Sis Caesar's Your Show of Shows, Red Skelton, Arthur Godfrey and many others. In the final episode, game shows are the focus. Early game shows had their origins in radio but hit a road block during the game show scandals where it was revealed that contestants were being given the answers to questions. The genre eventually re-established itself and made stars of many of the emcees.

As a junior associate at a prestigious Chicago law firm, she joins her longtime friend, former law school classmate and firm partner Will Gardner (Josh Charles), who is interested to see how Alicia will perform after 13 years out of the courtroom. Alicia is grateful the firm's top litigator, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), offers to mentor her but discovers the offer has conditions and realizes she's going to need to succeed on her own merit. Alicia's main competition among the firm's 20-something new recruits is Cary (Matt Czuchry), a recent Harvard grad who is affable on the surface, but will use any means to ensure that he, not Alicia, secures the one full-time associate position that's available.

Law & Order, the longest running crime series and the second longest-running drama series in the history of American broadcast television, started its 18th season on NBC in the winter of 2008. The brainchild of creator Dick Wolf, Law & Order is the most successful brand in the history of primetime television; the winner of the 1997 Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series; ties Cheers and M*A*S*H for the most consecutive best series nominations (eleven) and the longest-running drama series currently on American television. The series has also turned into one of entertainment's preeminent brands using a distinct ripped from the headlines format, and has spawned the successful spinoffs Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Crime & Punishment and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Filmed entirely in and around New York City, this realistic yet fictional drama looks at crime and justice from a dual perspective. Law & Order has been renewed through 2009 and delivers some of the highest ratings on television, ranking fourth for any drama on any network among adults 18-49 for the past four full seasons. Season-to-date, the show remains a top-25 series among adults 18-49, a top-20 series in total viewers and one of the most upscale dramas on television. Law & Order was also television's #5 drama in overall total viewers for the 2003-04 season with an average of 15.9 million viewers. The acclaimed crime drama has chased away more than 20 competing dramas from the Wednesday (10-11 p.m. ET) hour since moving to that time period in 1992-1993. In 2006, after nearly fourteen years of airing at 10:00 PM, the series was moved to 9:00 PM to make room for the new NBC series Heist. After only two weeks, NBC opted to return the show to its 10:00 P.M. timeslot after the show fared poorly at 9:00 P.M.
To take his mind off his divorce, antimatter physicist Gus Lloyd started programming an action video game where he was the hero, his ex-wife Lauren Ashborne was the sidekick, and his father Jordan Kenneth Lloyd was Sebastian Jackal, a satanic figure who wanted to destroy the world with an army of thugs based on the people who made Gus' life a living hell. The antimatter experiments Gus and his friend Peter Rucker were running went haywire, reading the game's villain file and sending them into the real world to act out their programming. Gus, Lauren, and Peter are then forced to play the game for real.
A mundane yet compelling look into the grim affairs of the Homicide Unit of the Baltimore Police Department. Shot entirely with handheld cameras on location in the Fells Point Community of Baltimore, it's unlike most "cop shows" in that it lacks action-packed sequences involving car chases, gun fights and explosions. Instead, the episodes are focused on the actual investigative work required to close the case. Inspired by David Simon's acclaimed non-fiction book, "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets," it's been quoted as "the most reality-based police drama ever aired on television."
Based on the critically acclaimed novel of the same name, this series provided a hopeful, yet honest look at life in the new South. Set in the fictional Sparta, Mississippi, the show was a marvelous blend of heartfelt drama and folksy humor. It portrayed both the professional and personal pursuits of Sparta P.D's officers. Series star Carroll O'Connor, in a role far removed from Archie Bunker, served as executive producer. Using the pen name Matt Harris, Mr. O'Connor was also the story editor and wrote many of the episodes.
On this critically acclaimed drama about a top Los Angeles law firm, some of the best battles take place outside of the courtroom. In the bedroom, in the courtroom, or at McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney & Kuzak's staff meetings, the firm's ambitious, competitive attorneys confront conflict between their own desires, their obligations as attorneys, and their principles as human beings.
Welcome to the Monsters guide at TV Tome. Monsters had a run from 1988 to 1991 and previously was running in syndication on SCI-FI. Recently it was taken off the air and there are no episodes airing that I'm aware of. Produced by Richard P. Rubinstein, producer of Tales from the Darkside, Monsters was a 30-minute weekly show that was very simple in its premise. Normally, as Rubinstein said, due to budget restrictions all the scripts were written with only one or two interior scenes and a maximum of six or seven characters and always involved a monster. My personal favorite episodes of the show, which I strongly recommend should you be able to get your hands on them, are: 49. Stressed Enviornment
54. The Hole
58. Waiting Game And two honorable mentions of 33. Reaper and 72. The Moving Finger. If anyone knows where you can get customized video tapes with any of these episodes I would be greatly appreciative.
Murder seems to follow Jessica Fletcher, a former English teacher and a mystery writer full of charm, zest-for-life, and personality; who happens to become "the investigator" when traveling around the country to promote a series of novels.
