Hubby and I binge watched all three seasons in a few days. LOVE that series.

Not watching much TV except news and weather. Miss sports big time but can't get myself to watch all the Patriots Super Bowl wins I have recorded because I am going through Tom Brady withdrawals. However, the yard never looked better, way ahead of where we usually are this time of the year. Lots of cleaning and organizing going on, and finally finished the taxes. Our dog is loving this whole thing, her humans are with her all day. Need to start finding more ways to work out at home. I will know I am starting to go stir crazy when I hope some weeds will grow in the garden so I will have something to do.

Just watched one of my all time favorite movies again.

Silent Running (1972) It is a brilliant piece of cinematography IMO.
Just love the little robots who cheat at cards!

New Hulu series, DEVS...part thriller, part sci fi, with strong recurrent spiritual element. One chapter each Thursday.

1916. Documentary on Irish struggle for freedom. Never will you hear more articulate, clear and poetic explanation of history.

True crime series....old murders for, surprise surprise, reasons of sex and money.

Old and new movies/TV: The Furies, Days of Wine and Roses, Super 8, War Horse, Columbo, Bob Newhart, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Valhalla Murders, Outlander, The Man in the High Castle, A Shock to the System (how to get ahead through electricity!), The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (great...Richard Burton at his world weary best), Run Silent Run Deep (Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster on a sub), Ray Bradbury theater, Pandemic (free) or my personal favorite (you have to pay to rent) Contagion, with the Goop girl, Gwyneth Paltrow, bringing something back to America that everyone can get for free...and regret it.

There's also, on Netflix, Kate and Leopold (love story and time travel), Marriage Story (falling apart of one), The Great Raid (WWII true story of rescue), Mystic River (revenge, loss, sadness), True Grit ("fill your hands, you son of a ….."), Red Dawn ("Wolverines!!!), Tremors (Kevin Bacon, Reba with an automatic weapon), Snow Day (comedy!), Longmire (a sheriff you can count on), 21 (card counters and Vegas vigilance), Seinfeld special I'M telling YOU for the Last TIMe, Kodachrome (hard to love father on road trip with bitter son....stay till the end), Hostiles (best serious western since Unforgiven, good for folks who think they can't ever change), Medal of Honor (true heroism).

And oh, search around Netflix, Amazon, Hulu for old reruns of Match Game shows. Still funny after all these years!!

Watched the classic NCAA BBall games yesterday. Then on the Orlando Channel 6 news, they actually did a sports report segment with final scores and highlites from those games.

Also watching Disney, Nat Geo, Apple TV, Prime and Netflix. Plus have a good stock of SF books I've been meaning to get to.

Hasn't effected me at all.
The evolution of our favorite past time sports has left me with no desire to support any sport that ends with the word Ball
Who are egotistical millionaires that believe they are gods gift to professional sports.


Unlike sport of golf bowling horseshoes you earn your pay check week by week .Not handed millions and lets see what you can do

We don’t subscribe to any television product such as cable or satellite, so to us it’s no change. We recently finished an eye-opening series on Netflix that we highly recommend: Oliver Stone’s The Untold History of the United States and are now in the middle of Morgan Freeman’s fascinating exploration of God as experienced in many countries and cultures around the world. We also watch a lot of TED Talks for some awesome personal stories and experiences, as well as a lot of nature stuff; in the past we did all of David Attenborough (sp?j. Wildlife photographer have to be THE most patient people in the world!...

Since there's no sports I rounded up some of them little plastic drink swords and issued them out to our anoles, open a cold one and watch the gladiator fights in the drive way. At least their tails will grow back.

I just started watching (Netflix) the third one, as a result of the suggestion in this thread.


It's freaking hilarious!

We had just connected to streaming ............... cannot believe how much there is to watch. I used to complain about the boob tube and now I am staying up too late watching so many great programs. Makes me wonder why the cable companies did not see streaming coming and get into the act from the beginning.

I watched an old Vera mystery last night, great TV programming, no in your face violence and no screaming and yelling. What a difference.
