I don't really watch Netflix or TV or anything, usually documentaries about nature, space, very little fiction. I watch a lot of videos online, mostly about whatever I'm obsessed with atm, such as mycology/mushroom growing, cannabis growing, drums/music/new gear. As for shows my favorite show is Rick & Morty. I sometimes watch Cartoon Network in the morning. They're cool shows so there! LOL. I'm 35.

Young Sheldon - Is it strange to say that I find this show cute?  I'm sure there are other reasons I like it too, but I don't want to open up that introspective and embarrassing can of worms.  I'll just like the show, thank you very much.

 

Supergirl - It's just bad enough to not take seriously, which makes it good in a way.  I like how they are trying to show women as being capable, though they can sometimes make this effort a bit obvious.  Still, not bad.  It sometimes works as a temporary illusion of social life to imagine that the characters and events are real, and part of the real world that I am also a part of, rather than just actors on a TV show placating the discontent of the masses.  As long as the acting stays above water and the script remains semi-plausible, I can get drawn in a bit.

 

The Magicians - Full of depressed good-looking rich kids with untapped talent, spiced with fantasy.  Feels like my college days.  Perhaps a mirror?

 

Agents of SHIELD - Just kickass overall.  I like agent Coulson, reminds me of my dad kinda.  Good fantasy/sci fi elements.

 

Travelers - Echoes the feelings of responsibility that real life demands through fiction.  Also like Eric McCormack, used to watch Will & Grace for the same reason.

 

Black Mirror - Have only seen a few episodes.  Heavy.  Thought-provoking.  Genuinely scary sometimes.  Genuinely quite a good show so far.

 

MANIAC - A good short series.  Different.  Unexpected.  Retro (which seems to be the theme the last 10 years or so - lots of 80s stuff going around).  Brought me to the point of re-examining my stay in a hospital and the implications and considerations of mental health, family relations, pain, trauma, etc.  Not in a bad way either.

 

 

 

Shows I can't, don't, or won't watch:

 

Game of Thrones - Seems unnecessarily dark.  It just looks and feels like a bunch of jerks being jerks, not something I'm interested in

 

Big Bang Theory - If ever there was a group of people who deserved to be upset about being stereotyped, it's scientists.  I don't like this show or its portrayal of people like myself, as if we're all socially incompetent weirdos with childish fixations.  And NASAL voiyses.

 

Breaking Bad - Just fucking no.  The whole premise is depressing from a sociological point of view.  I like to keep my eyes and mind trained on how things can get better, not how things currently suck.

 

Orange is the New Black - See above.

 

Generally, anything that is basically a "cop show" where people are trying to get their revenge on some "bad person" is not something I'm interested in.  I know that zillions of people get tickled any time a bad guy gets the crap beat out of him, but I just feel sorry sick and sad for everyone involved.  There's no adrenaline rush for me, no excitement, no victory, glory, or thrill of the hunt.  Just tears.  No thanks.  Also - "lawyer shows."  Just monkies throwing shit at each other, trying to oust them from their perch on the social hierarchy tree.  Unfortunately, a lot of drama gets reduced to this formula for me, so I don't find it that entertaining usually.

 

Sopranos - Ditto.  And violence is nothing I am entertained by.  It just hurts to watch.

 

Dexter - FUCK THAT.  Honestly, the #1 most overriding fear I have ever imagined is not being in control of my own body while someone else does.  Period.  No thanks, don't want to watch it even if he's killing other bad guys still - no thanks.

 

 

 

That as much as I can speak on the subject really.  I don't actually watch that much TV generally.  I'm more of a reader.

 

- Darci.

Coming up on three years without teevee in February.  I have been buying used DVDs at garage sales and thrift stores.  I have a backlog of a couple hundred now going into winter.   Also, I have really bad short term memory, so I can watch them over several times.     The only thing that bothers me is, the DVD is being made an obsolete form, and things are going to streaming, which we can't get here unless you have satellite internet, which is expensive, not to mention the movies would all be pay to play too.   Worse than a fixed income, I have no income.    So, I guess I just won't get to see and collect the newer stuff.   I have a few series box sets to watch this winter, BBC detective things.

Ive been wanting to check that out I love a good ghost story

I watched the whole Adventures of Sabrina it was good .... the whole dark spin on the cheerful TV series I watched as a kid was interesting ....

I watched the documentery Pygmes the children of the jungle it was amazing I want to recomend this to everyone this time of year ...The Congo area in Africa is where precious metals are mined for all of our cell phones and lab tops etc.... So this Christmas respect the rain forests of the world and recycle our old electronics ....This way less needs to be mined in the future :) maybe we can find a better way then clear cut logging (to get the big old trees worth a fortune) then miining the minerals and destroying the habitat further littlery ripping holes in the already endangered wilderness / jungle ...many animals including Ape's are killed and babys kidnaped and sold (if the Ape's are not there the forest dosnt need to be protected and loggers can move in) it explaines a bit about the reble groups and war zones within the borders ....... very interesting

The Strain. I tend to lean towards horror and comedy shows and movies. Getting ready to smoke and watch some Police Squad. Classic.

I'm re-watching Midsomer Murders (the John Nettles seasons). If you have Netflix USA I highly recommend checking it out. Real looking actors, wonderful acting, and many twists that surprise even me: someone who can always guess the twist! It's my absolute favorite show and I adore Mr. Nettles. The theme song is also quite beautiful.

Disenchanted... Eh... It's alright I guess.

I was also going to say Midsomer murders, but Agatye beat me to it.

So, at long last, Netflix finally let out Breaking Bad's second season.  I just finished and I suppose now it's going to be wait for the next one.   I'm not likely to order many other series.   Just everyone I know told me to see it.  Even if they didn't tell me that, they had already seen it, and I hadn't.   I find most of my viewing is on the net.

Legacies

 

I am only slightly embarrassed of my Vampire Diaries spin off addiction... Teeny Bopper warewolf, vampire, Witch shows are an Achilles Heal of mine... Admitting you have a problem is the first step toward getting better...
