I am old enough to remember the days when social schedules had to be arranged around the airing time of favorite TV shows. I do not have a DVR, but I do have cable with on-demand and a ROKU that allows me to use Netflix or other such services. I think it is great that I can make up my own viewing schedule.
I used to be quite attention deficit when it came to TV watching. Making a commitment of Sunday night time to watch Downton Abbey, for example, would have been too much for me. I might have foregone the whole series in an earlier time. Now I can watch it on-demand on Monday instead of watching the evening news.
Downton Abbey -- I am looking forward to the final season. I may even watch on Sunday nights, but, really, anything that distracts me from the national news in the evening is a good thing. Maybe I will watch each episode twice.
Grace and Frankie -- Surely there will be another season. The first series ended with a cliffhanger.
Modern Family -- That show never fails to make me laugh out loud.
The Office -- I am binge watching the whole series now. I rarely watched it before so I finally decided to catch up. I was born in Scranton so I consider this a part of finding my cultural heritage. God help me.
Joy -- I went to the theater to see this movie and I wish I had done more research beyond seeing the trailer. Should have waited til it was on Netflix so I could have turned it off. Why did anyone think the development of a mop would make a compelling story?
Flawless -- I watched this on Netflix so Robert DeNiro could redeemed himself for Joy in my eyes. And he did! Also, Philip Seymour Hoffman was outstanding. So now I really want to see him in Capote.
Comedians in Cars Going for Coffee -- how did I miss this before, I ask myself.
What will you be watching in 2016?
Will my mind turn to mush (or is it already there?)
