So as a family holiday gift, we re-subscribed to Netflix's streaming service. We'd canceled our service a few years ago because we just weren't using it. There was lots of stuff on TV and if we wanted a movie, chances were it was on demand somewhere.
It is awesome. I can prop my iPad up while I'm straightening my hair and watch something entertaining. It's the perfect complement to being able to read while I blow-dry. I can watch something diverting while I'm doing the dishes or sorting the laundry or cleaning the bathroom. Because my gym has free wi-fi, I can even plug into my iPad while I'm on the elliptical!
The first thing I did was gobble through the first seasons of Downton Abbey. I've since moved on to Doc Martin and a few other things. I have been waiting patiently for a certain someone with more techno ability than me to hook up the little Roku box thing on the big TV in the living room so we can actually use it there.
Here's the problem. I have discovered and started watching several series that I think that same certain someone who also enjoy. The BBC Sherlock series. The Netflix House of Cards series. SyFy's Lost Girl series. I've watched the first episode or so of each and am DYING to watch more. We only have so much time for TV in the evening. It could be months before we get to all of them.
Here's the thing, though. My techno-savvy sweetheart has, over the years, become more and more willing to discuss shows and dissect them with me. I'm pretty sure that they'll all be more interesting if I wait and share them.
So which do you think is better? Gobbling them up on one's own (and potentially losing weight because it keeps me on the elliptical longer)? Or sharing them with someone who will obsess over them with one?
