TV Shows

A TV these days is just a good monitor. Or a smartphone (Radio's in there as well, whether streamed or using the headphones cable as an antenna).

TV channels, even specialized ones, like the SciFiChannel, which were supposed to cater to their viewers' tastes, have always cancelled before their time successful shows like Farscape, Firefly, Stargate (including the Atlantis and Universe off-shoots), Dr.Who, Reaper, most superhero cartoons(NinjaTurtles,TeenTitans,JusticeLeague) and replaced them with what the bored, gossip-hungry average unfocused audience craves: 'reality' shows, warmongering and bizzarre or Asian animation... in 2006 TV sucked a lot, so we cancelled our cable subscription, stuck to games, old TV recordings, streamed media and DVDs/BRs, and never looked back.

Recently, a lot of interesting shows came up, and Netflix + Prime Video with the built-in on-demand watching makes TV obsolete with its nonsensical and time-consuming ads.

From the listings below (in need of a lot of addition and detail), one can see my preferences: SciFi, Epic Fantasy, Musicals, Action.

Sadly, for Musicals I have to depend on the old BW movies on DVD: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, bits of comedies like History of the World part 1 and awesome episodes like Buffy's "Once More With Feeling".
