With Streaming in Chaos, I'm Gonna Check Out Broadcast Network Television

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

Streaming is in chaos. Shows are getting canceled and disappearing, and all of it for tax write offs, so sustainable business model this is not. It feels like in the next couple years, all of the streaming stuff is gonna collapse, I'm looking at the older modes of movies and television. Mainly, watching movies in theaters and buying DVDs, and network television.

The network sitcom is making a comeback, spearheaded by Abbott Elementary. I also love American Auto and Grand Crew. And because Night Court is back, I'm gonna start that and the original series. I've also heard nothing but good things about Home Economics. So I've got comedies lined up. It's the dramas that are gonna be interesting finds. I don't really know what's happening with that, so suggestions would be much appreciated. Though I did see a trailer for the new Milo Ventimiglia show, The Company You Keep, coming soon, and that looks very fun, so I'll probably tune into that.

I know people don't really care about network television anymore. It was cable, then premium cable, and now streaming where all the "quality" television is. But, as we've seen with Abbott, if you make a quality show, people will show up for it. And networks should learn from that success and put the effort in. Linear television doesn't have to die, life just needs to be put into it, on both the networks' and the audiences' parts.

I'm Officially (Mostly) Moved In

Wednesday, February 1, 2023

I finally got my studio apartment! And now that the lease on my old place is over, I feel like I am finally officially moved in. Mostly.

I've got my new Purple mattress that I spent $1100 on and a new bed frame that looks like it could be paired with my favorite American Girl Doll, Kit Kittredge. And thanks to that new bed, I got a new comforter and sheets, new bed new vibes. I've got all my clothes and knick knacks mostly sorted. I've got my Wi-Fi and my television hooked up. Now I just need... pretty much everything else. 

I need a real dresser now that I have the space for one, as well as a nightstand for the same reason. Hopefully I can get a tiny little love seat, that I should have enough space for. And more money for me to spend. Oh joy. But these are things I can hopefully keep for a while and take to the next place whenever that is. I am also on Venmo.
