Watch. You know the winter soldier again, You know, maybe maybe that's what I'll do this. I'll give myself a weekend. Vega. Rockford files. Sure, I'm not kidding on and you know, I say this as a joke, and it's true. I hear that Columbo is having a resurgence. Why would that happen? It's a thing because of what Carrie's talking about. It's a thing. Columbo was having a resurgence with people who never watched Columbo because they weren't alive. Yeah. No. You watch the Rockford files. I'm telling you, First of all, you'll see James Garner is really good writing even in these early episodes in which I have not seen these early ones. And it gets better as I think, but the writing is really good. Well, Vince Gilligan, one of the creators of breaking bad on Better call, Saul used to write on Rockford files on a bunch of other shows, too. And you if you'll recall.
