The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a great show about a comedienne in NYC in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Also, Turner Classic Movies. Plus The Windsors about the royal family. A documentary.

we are trying to stick to silly comedies, just to let off steam for my daughter, stuck here after being sent home from college. Family Guy, Seinfeld, Andy Griffith, and the highlight of our saturday will be Svengoolie tonight on me-tv.

No offense CB, but if I (a guy) go to HELL and this was playing 24/7 - THAT WOULD be HELL.

Now watching Last Tango in Halifax
We watch a lot of Netflix, Prime Video & Hulu. But I understand not a lot of people have these. On regular TV I’m sure only some
people have the same taste. Like what you listed I don’t watch any of them because most of them I never heard of. I do watch the Coronavirus stats just to see how it’s going.

Other than sports, we watch the ID (Investigation Discovery) channel the most, so recording more of those shows and watching, On the Case with Paul Zahn is my favorite. Some of the others I like right now are The Lake Erie Murders, The Man with the Van and My Murder Story. Some of my favorites last year were Breaking Homicide (retired detective reviews cold cases), The Interrogator (Houston detective gets 90% confessions without pressure) and Deadly Recall (Nashville detective with photgraphic memory recalls the crimes).

The Villages Florida

I added Epix Movie channels, 3 channels for $6 a month and they have lot films that HBO and others don't. I just watched A Quiet Place, and I have about dozen films recorded from Epix, Death Wish with Bruce Willis is next to watch. Even found an old movie I was looking for, After the Fox from '68 with Peter Sellers and Victor Mature.

The Villages Florida

Also watching the reruns of games, on NFL Network I watched the SB between the Eagles and the Patriots, watch the Bucs beat the Rams yesterday, also on Golf Channel been watching the replay of the Valspar Tournament from two years ago when Tiger played but Paul Casey won. Also rented some from Red Box, which I hadn't done in several years. I rented Jo Jo Dancer, Judy and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I liked them all. I even watched some of the NHL All-Star game replay, I'm missing hockey and golf the most right now.

We also over the years record all the House Hunters and my Lottery Dream Home on HGTV, so we are still watching them. David Bromstad of LDH parents live in TV and we saw him not too long ago eating out with them. He's a very colorful fellow and not hard to miss.

I have many hours recorded on my dish of things to watch. I also record old golf, meaning from the 60's and 70's. Fun to watch.

Never watched much sports, mostly football but some of the players killed that for me so no loss there...But now we just got hooked on "Billions" from Showtime.

We have discovered a thing called radio.
It's a wonderful invention.
Just a square box withe some knobs on it.
Turn them and you get music, and even people talking.
Whatever will they think of next!!

Have you watched 'Trapped', 2 seasons, or 'The Valhalla Murders'? Both are Icelandic police dramas.
