How I began watching shows during a pandemic year. Like most people, I spend many hours each day, watching a screen. A laptop for my work and for my writing, a Kindle for ebooks, and of course, a phone to connect with friends and listen to audiobooks and podcasts.
Unlike others, I have resisted the lure of binge watching video streaming shows, an affliction that grew tremendously in 2020, for obvious reasons.
At dinnertime, our family gathers around to watch a show that we choose through a democratic process. This bonding ritual has been a daily highlight, particularly this year.
Although I only watch shows recommended by those I trust, I soon realized that resisting the zeitgeist is futile, particularly in a pandemic.
A list of shows I watched, and appreciated in 2020.
