@DrWorm I think watching old B&W movies relaxing, especially as I’ve seen them all many times before… obviously not all movies on TCM are relaxing, but if you go into their movie list there’s usually a few to choose from also.
@lordbowen Especially when it’s being the non-history channel.
When there are back to back episodes of Ancient Aliens, youngest offspring and I can really our “mock” on. I’ve seen her laugh so hard at a few theories I thought she was going to pass out.
buy af. I just moved to a new apartment and have been meaning to buy this non-exact thing. Thank you, meh!
I’m 41 and haven’t had cable since I started college. Back then I would watch 90s movies on video that we scammed from BMG. Skipping most of my life… Now I stream something that won’t give me fever dreams.
@sicc574 Me too. I pay for pseudo cable just for Cartoon Network/Adult Swim. My cable provider has something similar to DirectTV Now that’s half the price of that ($20 a month) that has streaming live TV, but also gives me all the Apps for each channel on my Roku TV. I’ll run the Cartoon network app all day int he background. And I don’t have kids…
People still watch TV? With Netflix/YouTube/prime/Hulu? Maybe it’s the same people still listening to the radio… My TV calls itself a tunerless display and doesn’t even have the capability to watch “tv” embrace the future
@llsncl I’m staying w/ my bro & his gf for the weekend and had my first experience w/ Hulu.
Last night after they went to sleep I watched the first episode of Castle Rock - it was either that or 11/22/63.
I knew I was taking a big risk, in case I really liked the show and wanted to continue watching it.
I think I may have been converted.
I’m leery of streaming video though - Hulu had occasional drop-outs and buffering (their internet isn’t great), and I have occasional (but too frequent) issues when streaming Netflix at home over FiOS.
So, not sure I’m ready to cut the cable cord, but definitely going to consider it, now. Need to look into TiVo as well.
@PooltoyWolf Yes, he was, which is why i’ll happily zone out to Forensic Files for hours on end even though I’ve seen most episodes at least three times each. When there’s an episode that I just can’t stand to watch again, I switch over to Investigation Discovery, though half their shows are garbage.
