TV Talk Tuesday
Time for another TV Talk Tuesday.
What are YOU watching?
Because I don't watch any "live" television, I don't see the commercials and I'm not really in the know about the new seasons. I do "like" The Walking Dead on Facebook, and had been aware that the new season was starting up last month. I mentioned to my mom I didn't know if I should start watching my other regulars ... Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife, Scandal, when they started up. My mother surprised me by saying "Oh, they've started!" I was completely unaware!
Over the past several months, I've really only watched using Netflix or Amazon Prime. My PlayOn application is nice, but just requires a bit more work. But with NEW stuff, PlayOn is my gateway. I can record the episodes as soon as the networks post them (usually the morning after they aired, although ABC has a week delay). I can then stream the shows to my home gym and watch them while working out.
A WONDERFUL new feature PlayOn/PlayLater just introduced is "ad skipper" ... it automatically jumps over the ads. I LOVE it! I can't stand commercials, even if I could manually fast forward through them.
So ... I haven't watched Netflix or Amazon Prime in the past few weeks, but have now gone back to Play On and watching shows that have recently aired. I post here often that I like Mondays. I like the return to the routine. This time of year, there is also motivation ala TV series! *Ü* The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, and Downton Abby have new episodes posted Monday morning. I usually don't get to them all on Monday, but it is motivation for me to get back to my gym so I can see them before I hear any spoilers!
Grey's Anatomy and Scandal are on Thursday nights ... so I grab those episodes on Friday, and hopefully that gives me a little motivation to workout over the weekend.
I do enjoy "The Voice" ... I really like the blind auditions and the battle rounds. After that, I lose a little interest. But I like at least having a basic knowledge of the competitors, so I can follow the conversation. A few seasons ago, my boys really got into the show. They would root for certain singers, vote, and buy some songs on Itunes. It was a fun family affair. I asked the boys if they were interested in this season and they said no. I recorded a few of the first episodes, and turned them on while I cleaned up the kitchen. That was all it took to get the boys hooked again. I haven't been able to keep up with how quickly the boys watch the episodes, so I've just seen a little hear and there. I'll try to catch up down in my gym when I can (but the other shows usually take precedence).
Anythings else new ... I'm really not interested in. I'll just wait!
I can barely keep up with this list as is!
