Another off topic day.
Today I want to talk about trying to find new tv shows.
I went from having just "regular" tv channels, to having a smart tv where you can watch movies, tv, even apps! I can watch YouTube on my tv!
However, with all of these choices, it's harder than you think to find a show you can enjoy.
One day I heard about a new Nancy Drew on the CW. I knew it would be geared to older teens and early twenties. The opening scene was Nancy and Ned having . . . ummm . . . "relations".
I was shocked, grossed out, angry.
Honestly, it made me feel a little dirty.
Okay, I'm 54 years old. I never thought I was a prude. But now, I'm pretty sure I am. And I'm okay with that.
Frankly, I'm tired of every tv show or movie having sex scenes. I mean, is that really all humans want to see?
And language! Have you ever heard of such language on tv? The "F" bomb is dropped so much, it's a wonder it hasn't left craters in earth.
They give you little rating at the top of the scene these days. But honestly, they don't always match up to what you find acceptable.
I have no children around. It's just my sister and me in this house of ours. Thank goodness for that. I can't imagine watching a program (what us old folks call shows) or a movie with a child around.
I love British comedies. ARE YOU BEING SERVED?, ARE YOU BEING SERVED AGAIN (in some ways, funnier than the first), KEEPING UP APPEARANCES.
I watch a lot of Hallmark. I finally get the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel!
There's also, ME TV, and COZI TV. They show a lot of shows from the 60s and 70s.
What about you my amazing friends?
Do you have a hard time finding shows that fit with your values? Do you miss the good old days when it was safe to watch anything on tv with anyone you wanted?
What are your favorite go to shows and or channels?
I look forward to hearing from you!
