TV. That thing I turn on once in a while to watch  a nature film on PBS while getting all my news and entertainment off a small handheld device that can access anything in the world.

Neither are interactive. TV the least.

My biggest accomplishment during all of this might be watching every single episode of Cheers.

We do now know how peak TV ends. But it's a chance to catch up on some of the great TV I missed. Like, did t'all know The Americans is really good? I mean, you'd be really impressed by it.

I have "The Walking Dead", "The Blacklist", and "Supernatural" to binge, along with an entire stack of books to plow through.  I'll be fine if I don't find out how the latest season of "The Flash" ends for a while.

You could watch "Dark" and then write a 100,000 essay, well pretty much everything.

Does this mean I have to talk to and relate to people? Have you meet those a'holes?

Currently on season 7 of Supernatural myself.  8 more seasons to go after that.  I miss Cass.  Speaking of, this is a thing that's happening.

Time to start binging the Flintstones, Gunsmoke, and Bonanza. Then some Perry Mason mysteries and Columbo. That'll take a while.

Streaming services have an abundant stockpile of The Simpsons and Law and Order.
I don't see folks running out anytime soon.

Read a book.

Watch a show you normally would not have.

Read a farking book.

Slow your watching pace to one episode a night instead of an entire season in a night.

Read a goddamn book.

Don't worry. Even the people who watched it don't know.

I'm watching Downton Abbey, What We Do in the Shadows, and a handful of other smaller shows on Prime and Hulu. There are enough things to keep a normal person entertained for years.

I forget what we were sort of watching the other night when a commercial came on that sounded decidedly Canadian accents.

What a good show. I finally finished watching it and I'm pretty upset they canceled it.

There's been talk of bringing it back lately, and everyone claims to be willing.  Hope the show gets a big enough Netflix popularity bump to make it happen.  I suspect it will come up during this event on July 11:

I saw that too. Cautiously optimistic.
But if it happens, will it be as staggeringly gorgeous as it was? The cinematography was insane too.

Thanks for sharing this. I did read from other sources that they were open to continuing. Encouraging!

I'd definitely watch if Netflix picked it up to make season 4. That would work nicely, since I don't have cable. Loved Mads as Hannibal. He lends a cool, steely, exacting refinement to the character. Anthony Hopkins was good, but he exuded such a slithery creepiness that took away some of his menace. Mads M. more effectively demonstrates the brilliance mixed with a formidable predatory nature.

Only last week did my local library start doing curbside pick up. And there were a couple of books that were supposed to come out in April, but obviously the library hasn't gotten their hands on them.

Oh, and I'm watching Chopped right now. When they run out of new episodes of Chopped, we will have officially run out of TV.

Just watched all of Upload recently and finally finished Hollywood.

Upload is similar to The Good Place but not so much I didn't enjoy it.  In fact, we wound up binging it (something we don't do that often).  Hollywood was pure wish-fulfillment but was so well done and featured so many people giving great performances and/or looking like they were having a fantastic time that it just made for an ultimately joyful ride.

Watching some Enterprise now.  Picking up eps here and there.  Nice to see Brent Spiner be sneaky and snarky again.

I'm not watching much TV in the first place.. and none of it live.

On the other hand, we may run out of porn this year.

Then you watch "Man V. Food."

I like to watch it in reverse order so the hosts get skinnier and healthier while shoving way too much food into their gullets.
