With the recent Netflix series “Riverdale” … I recently discovered that I have a developed new relationship with television.
‘There was a time I would check in with my favourite TV stories and characters once a week and slowly enjoy the progress over several years. Missing a show one week would be a real bummer!
Later it was all about catching up with shows daily in rerun syndication Friends, How I met Your Mother, WIll and Grace are all shows I caught up with well after their original run was on air. You’d almost catch a show whenever you turned the TV on.
Now I’m watching TV like I used to read books. I immerse myself in as many seasons as they have made and watch each episode like I would read chapters.
When I accidently got hooked on “Riverdale” I was forced to go back to the weekly “broadcast” now the anticipation for each new episode brings a reminder of the old days when I would wait to savour each new show.
Of course this romantic nostalgia ended abruptly when I discovered Netflix didn’t post and episode last week and now I’m waiting another 7 days!!
