I’ve been a very bad boy. Well, if my TV viewing habits are anything to go by.
I’m so behind in terms of all the shows I enjoy watching. While that in itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as I could probably do with less screen time full stop, it leaves me with the worry that I’ll have crucial elements spoilt for me online.
In no particular order, I’m waaaay behind on:
- The Handmaid’s Tale
- The Crown
- Stranger Things
- Sense 8
The list goes on. It means I’ve been more active and spending more time away from the TV, which is great. But also might point to my ever-decreasing attention span! I’d much rather dip into a book on my Kindle than settle in for several episodes of a tv show.
If I had to put some kind of prioritisation around my viewing, Westworld would be at the top. Especially as I watch it with @TheFrankFlyer and we’re already two episodes behind. Someone’s going to spoil it for my any minute. I just know it.
After that, it would be the Handmaid’s Tale. I mean, I haven’t even finished season one and the second season is already out. It’s one of my favourite ever books, but it’s another one I’d like to watch with @TheFrankFlyer.
I made some progress on the Gotham front last week, watching a few episodes while doing some ironing. It seems to be a great way to keep productive while enjoying a bit of mindless, bubblegum entertainment. And I don’t really mind ironing, actually.
And don’t walk to me about Nordic Noir! I have a vague recollection that there’s another season (the final one?) of The Bridge available on the BBC. It’s supposed to be entertainment, so I can’t let it bother me.
Maybe I’ll start watching Netflix on the cross-trainer again.
Or maybe I’ll declare Netflix bankruptcy!
