Actual TV for TV's sake... we were still in the TV shows on DVD era at this point.
TV shows in general. Been many years at this point since the internet took over. Was gradual but I noticed it happening. At one point I stopped following current TV other than occasional wander over to http://www.pogdesign.co.uk/cat/ , and I think it is telling my bookmark title says May 2016. Today I barely recognise anything.
Today. I have been catching up occasionally on what little I have missed, often on a somewhat weekly basis, and it is not much. Found some things compelling for a while but ultimately the list grows while I do not find myself returning to it. It does generally trend somewhat older, but there are a few from at least the last 10 years (anything that started in the last 5 is harder but there are a few, and a few that maybe finished in that timeframe that I am still nowhere near seeing).
The vast vast majority of what I do on the video front is straight internet content, even when I try to watch similar on TV it is usually far weaker and does not get into any useful detail.
Definitely. In the past couple years, I have streamed through all of Head of the Class, Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, reluctantly Step by Step, and original Saint Seiya. I've already seen most of these multiple times in the past, but it was still a good time.
I do not know if I should respond with the typical "Well, its a series since the 60's so there's a lot to watch" or with the newer "Well given the state of the new seasons quality the older episodes deserve a rewatch for better appreciation". Can you tell that I was a fan? Heheheh
Seriously though, I tend to watch and rewatch older stuff on the typical, but recently I have found myself enjoying older stuff just because its written better and not trying to pander to anyone or anything. Its just a straight forward passionate story for the sake of losing yourself into the media. Its becoming harder to find that these days executed well in modern media.
I tend to rewatch some classics now and again, but some other ones more than others. For some reason I tend to find myself rewatching Serial Experiments Lain or Ergo Proxy once a year. Maybe its because I just like surreal stuff that I can find appreciation in.
definitely, my mother and I watch a star trek block every night but one on H&I. I've had sonarr recording shows for me on the pc, and I have several old show. I've thought about adding I Love Lucy. that show is fantastic for the 50s, way before my time.
I think I burnt myself out on the idea of watching reruns in general a few years back. Sure I'll revisit shows here and there, but not nearly to the extent that I used to. Mostly, I find myself waiting for new episodes of shows I enjoy currently airing and filling the time I would watch reruns in with watching dumb youtube shit instead. Probably a trade for the worse, but since it's all new content to my brain, I don't feel as much like I'm wasting my time when I am watching said youtube crap.
i still find it weird how i have over 30,000 likes(or reaction score, i spose) not only did someone think "this is a good post, i should like this" to my unfunny spiel, but it happened over 30,000 times
