How much TV do you watch
« on: May 12, 2024, 18:28 »
I've realised today that  I don't watch, I just listen.   I've just sung along to  Calamity Jane without  watching any of it.

Broadcast TV not at all for years. I have both netflix and prime but everything new on them feels like Im being preached to and since they've also introduced adverts I don't bother much any more unless it's a comedy special or similar.  I do have the radio on most of the time just to break the silence, it's far less intrusive than a TV.

TV is rarely on nowadays, I sometimes have a music channel playing in the background, that's about it  ::)
I use I-player if I find I've missed something I did want to watch...

I usually watch the soaps in the evening but in general there ain't much worth watching.
The sunny evenings this week has seen me in the garden or veg plot.
Not missed the box at all.

I only watch breakfast tv to catch up on the news then play a DVD later in the afternoon.
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well.

I have the TV on most evenings, although to be fair I also tend to have the laptop on. The degree of attention that each gets, depends on how interesting the TV is!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Same here Yorkie.. MrsxR wanted to watch one of the old Catherine Cookson series last night (not usually my cup of tea) but I found myself putting my phone down and thoroughly enjoying it!

Much the same for me, I do have the tv on in the kitchen whilst dinner is being cooked if Im the one cooking & keep an eye on pointless,then have the news on whilst we eat, but I cant always hear it as himself has an opinion on everything  :wacko even though he doesnt want it on! Then once Im settled for the evening tv is on usually but Ive got my iPad open(stops me nodding off  :D) or Im getting back into reading novels & so I read. If himself is watching something I really dont like I take my book to bed. Summer usually sees me not sitting down til 9ish or in the conservatory etc so no tv at all then & I dont miss it. Different I think if you live alone & dont want to be surrounded by silence

The latest replies are what I was actually asking,  I have the telly on but only actually watch it if something  catches my attention. Three days a week I'm at home alone as I'm registered disabled  at the moment.  It's a  'noise' and a comfort.

I know what you mean Wighty. I also live alone and just sometimes I just like to hear something other than the sounds of silence or my cat trying to barf on the carpet.
