With streaming on the rise especially during this stay-at-home period, FilmRise is providing even more options for free classic TV you can enjoy any time. The streaming service has recently added two popular classic TV series to its library – “My Favorite Martian” and “The Rifleman” are now available to stream for free beginning this month

“My Favorite Martian” stars Ray Walston as a Martian who gets stranded in Los Angeles and is rescued by a newspaper reporter played by “The Incredible Hulk” star Bill Bixby. “The Rifleman” chronicles the adventures of a Wild West rancher (Chuck Connors) who wields a custom rapid-fire Winchester rifle.
