We tried the first episode of The Expanse and couldn’t track what was going on with the back and forth between unrelated (at that point) plotlines. It wasn’t just me, either. Scott’s comment at the end was that he hadn’t the slightest idea of what had happened in the episode. We have that episode and the others still on our DVR, and we may try again. I’m not sure how interested I am given my tolerance for anxiety (Agents of SHIELD and Doctor Who push the boundaries of what I can handle).

We also watched the SyFy adaptation of Childhood’s End. My impression was that there was a lot of angst among the characters about things that I didn’t really see as that the things that should be upsetting— Children always grow up and separate from their parents and do things and live in a world that’s alien to what their parents knew. Of course, I’m also not convinced by things like art not flourishing in areas where things were utopian. People will create under circumstances like that. People explore and experiment for the fun of it sometimes, too. At any rate, we almost didn’t finish the series because we lacked any sort of emotional buy in or curiosity about what would happen next.

I tried the recent version of The Wiz, but I couldn’t get into it and ended up deleting it about forty minutes in when I realized that I wasn’t listening.

Our current TV watching is Doctor Who, The Daily Show, The Nightly Show, The Voice, Girl Meets World, The Muppets, The Flash, and Agents of SHIELD. Those, taken together, eat up enough time each week that we're not getting very far with our Netflix shows. Scott is also watching Heroes Reborn, but I'm leaving the room for that. I suspect I will need to leave the room for The Muppets, too, because I can't seem to deal with the storylines there.

Oh, and I do watch occasional episodes of Antiques Roadshow. Scott and Cordelia prefer not to be around for that, so I mostly use the DVR and watch during the school day.

I haven't decided what I think of Trevor Noah yet. I feel like I haven't seen enough of him yet to have an opinion. That will probably take a couple of months. There is, at least, nothing leaping out about him that repels me.

I still feel sort of like The Nightly Show is something I ought to watch rather than something I want to watch for fun. I think Larry Wilmore is doing some important things, and once in a while, I laugh, but I tend to lose track of the panel discussions to an embarrassing extent.

The Voice and Girl Meets World are Cordelia's picks. She's watching a lot less TV now than she used to (largely because she's watching things streaming from Netflix on her iPad and reading instead).

Scott and Cordelia are both interested in The Muppets and Agents of Shield, and Doctor Who and The Flash are also Scott's picks.

I rather miss having something to watch that I'm looking forward to, but I can't think of anything I've heard about that I'm willing to gamble on. I can only deal with Doctor Who and Agents of SHIELD by not paying very much attention to them, and The Flash kind of pushes my comfort zone, too. My tolerance for stress is a lot lower than it has been any time in the last few years.
