Watching TV again

I’m not much for watching television or movies, mainly because I have a mountain of a to-do list.

But, about once a week, I take off time to park my backside on the couch and watch something on TV with my husband.

9 times out of 10 it’s something that’s at least 20 years old, whether a really bad, but fun, science fiction movie like Oblivion (1994) or old black & whites like The Last Man on Earth (1964).

Last night, it was an episode of The Avengers from the 1960s.

Sometimes, Acorn TV will have something fun to watch like the Agatha Raisin series or Murphy’s Law.

They’ve all been fun, entertaining shows, even if some were groan worthy.

From my perspective, more care and effort used to be put into TV & movies.

They were designed primarily to entertain a wide audience rather than push agenda driven issues to niche groups.

Maybe that’s just an unintended consequence of having so many viewing options today.

Thankfully, there is a flood of old movies and series to watch so I don’t have to bother with the modern stuff.

Except, maybe, Aquaman, I might make an exception for that.
