Decades’ Weekend Binges: May 2019

May is another month of full of detective drama binges on Decades.

May 4-5: The Streets of San Francisco

This binge starts at the beginning and runs through S2E16, so I expect this one return for another binge this summer.

Title sequence to season one of The Streets of San Francisco

May 11-12: The Untouchables

Like The Streets of San Francisco, this binge of The Untouchables starts at the beginning and will run through S2E18. However, it does skip two two-part episodes — “The Unhired Assassin” from season one and “The Big Train” from season two.

Title sequence and clips from The Untouchables

May 18-19: Vega$ The Mod Squad

In honor of Peggy Lipton, Decades scratches the planned Vega$ binge for ’60 drama The Mod Squad. These episodes aren’t any block of episodes in chronological order. Rather, they appear to be episodes that best highlight Lipton, who played flower child Julie Barnes in the crime drama.

May 25-26: The Doris Day Show

The binge covers a majority of the series, starting at the beginning and ending a few episodes into the fourth season.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: April 2019

Here are programs that will air as part of Decades’ weekend binge block in April.


April 6-7: Mannix

Mannix returns for yet another binge. This one starts with S4E6, “The Lost Art of Dying,” and runs through the rest of season four and then five, though it skips one episode season four episode (“Sunburst”).

Decades’ Weekend Binges: March 2019

Here are programs that will air as part of Decades’ weekend binge block in March.

March 2-3: Police Woman

Select episodes from seasons two, three, and four of the Angie Dickinson police drama, concluding with the final episode.

March 9-10: Cannon

The binge begins in the latter part of season two and includes nearly all episodes through early season four before really skipping through the remaining episodes.
