What I am watching these days
It's not easy for me to watch anything on TV these days. Movies involve a babysitter and a tight window of opportunity. Our TVs are usually streaming Octanauts or PJ Mask (and whatever the next cartoon moose and squirrel find appealing). The intersection of time that I'm in front of a TV and there isn't a small child usurping it is extremely scant.
So when I say that binged watch anything these days, I really mean that I watched consecutive episodes in a finite amount of time spread over a couple of days versus the more conventional definition of completing a season in an afternoon or a series within a weekend.
That I was able to watch 10+ hours of Netflix Lost In Space is an achievement in and of itself. Luckily I didn't have to rewind episodes like I did with Altered Carbon because of all the AC Universe jargon that is shoved down your throat.
I am able to stream stuff on the tablets though. In fact I rather prefer it this way. The Close Captioning helps my old man hearing and it can somewhat multitask.
The Handmaid's Tale
Haven't seen Handmaid's Tale yet and cannot get Westworld yet until I figure out how to get HBO without a subscription. Maybe it will be better to wait until I can binge watch it on Prime or Netflix.
