I don’t watch much television. I have an IPad and mostly binge watch entire series or movies. I do like “trash TV” however. I like the “Bachelor/Bachelorette”shows, “Big Brother” Canada and US. These silly shows give me something to do all winter and I’ve watched them for years.
On Netflix I have watched all of “Orange Is The New Black”, “Wentworth”, “House of Cards”, “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Rita”. There are other shows that I must get back to like “Downton Abby” and “Bloodline” that I have started but not finished. I do prefer binge watching. If I don’t, then I forget to watch them.
My daughter tapes shows that we watch together when I go to her house for the weekend. These are shows I never watch at home. “Dateline NBC”and “Judge Judy” are 2 of them. Candice doesn’t watch these shows usually either but we look forward to watching them together after my grandson has gone to sleep.
I think shows are mostly habits or rituals that give us comfort. Most of us fondly remember shows from our childhood that bring warm feelings. We share the timeline with people we watched them with or with people that are our age, and we have that in common.
What are some of your favourite shows?
