The problem I have with TV and movies is that video games have corrupted me. I just cannot sit there passively and absorb. I have to do something to interact, move the camera, do SOMETHING. A 90 minute movie is about all I can take. Watching a series, 22 hours a season, I'd have to have it on in the background and at that point I'd rather do podcasts while gaming.

If I was going to force myself to watch something it would probably be Deep Space 9. I'm told it is good, and it was the competition to Babylon 5, which I liked (granted the people I watched it with made it better). I don't have a streaming service other than my untouched Amazon Prime Video (seriously they flood me with movie suggestions daily now reminding me that I have never watched anything).

I just have too much going on right now to justify the time sink that I could rather spend reading with some Baroque era Classical on in the background.
