Travel Man is on an extended assignment right now and will be away from home for a total of 22 days. Ugh! I’m fairly used to his travel schedule now, and simply focus on our together time. This undoubtedly leaves me a lot of time to find things to do on my own. Another thing I’ve been getting used to.
So, with the house mostly to myself for a few weeks, I spend my evening time watching more chick flicks than usual, channel surfing, and finding things that I like to watch that Travel Man and I may or may not watch together. Recently, I had read a few reviews of The Good Wife, with Julianna Margulies, and Christine Baranski. It had been on my back burner of shows to check out on our Roku, via Amazon Prime viewing. When I checked on this series a few weeks ago the seasons were not yet being offered for free, and I wasn’t going to pay to watch the episodes.
This past weekend, with Travel Man gone, I decided to check out the Good Wife again, and lo and behold Season 1 is now free if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber. Yay! So I settled in to watch the first episode of Season 1, and I’m hooked. Three nights later I have watch 14 episodes, not all in one sitting people! My son tells me I’m obsessed, or is it an addiction?
It’s been awhile since I got totally hooked on a TV series that I really enjoyed. This series is about the workings of a law firm and each episode revolves around one or two specific cases. There is also a great mini story in the background. I’m not going to be story spoiler here, but if you like a good lawyer series, this is a good one to settle in for.
TV viewing has become so different over the past few years. I would much prefer to find a series to watch on Netflix or Amazon Prime over any of the regular network shows. It’s definitely much more enjoyable to have the choices to be selective in your viewing, and not be limited to only two or three local network stations. Does anyone remember those days?
The guys in the house are hooked on The Walking Dead right now. Those zombies are just a little too gory for me. My Travel Man is watching the 3rd season on his Nexus tablet while he is on the road right now. He downloads the episodes before he travels, and then watches them while he flying or after work. He would rather have the control over what he’s watching too. It’s a whole new TV viewing world.
What’s your latest TV viewing obsession/addiction? I’d love to hear any recommendations too!
