Saturday Social Post



Hello, television viewers! I thought we could use another social post since the last one was so successful. Feel free to talk about any TV you want, below is a texty to use if you want.

Name
What TV have you been watching?
How do you watch?*
What summer show are you looking forward to?



*A topic that's come up more than once recently is how we manage our TV media consumption. We still have the traditional broadcast television with their traditional 'fall' season premieres, winter hiatus and spring finales. But that's only a fraction of what's available now. We have cable networks with shows that have shorter seasons and fall into the 'winter' or 'summer' categories, and within cable networks there's a hierarchy of the premium channels like Showtime and HBO compared to the basic channels like SyFy and USA Network. Then there are streaming sites like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, which will sometimes drop an entire season at once. And if that's not enough, I'm sure there's more that I've forgotten.

Then comes the question of when you have access to the show vs. when the show was released. For example, a show that is currently airing on a cable channel will become available on a subscription service like Netflix several months later. If you're in a different country, that release is even more delayed. Do you wait? If you're behind other viewers/fans, how does it change your fannish interaction?

FYI - My comments/experience above is based on USA, please share yours as I don't know a lot about what's common in other countries other than via osmosis from places like this. The region release schedule varies and confuses the heck out of me.

When I finally get to buying a new tv, I'm going to get Netflix or Amazon Prime, too. I'm kinda looking forward to that, even if the buying-a-new-tv thing is still far away into the future. *g*

I love shows set in space too :)

Been too long since there were any. I mean, I watched the original Space:1999 religiously, and I'm looking forward to reruns of U.F.O. Battlestar Galactica (the original and the new one) were both good but I never managed more than superficial watching, whereas Space:Above and Beyond didn't last long enough. Sigh.

They are more expensive to film, sadly :)

What TV have you been watching? Sense8 though not season 2 yet, honestly, lots of Shaw Brothers movies and other stuff on El Rey, reruns of "old people television" ie Murder She Wrote and Diagnosis Murder
How do you watch?* traditional tv, Netflix or Tivo'd seasons
What summer show are you looking forward to? Midnight, Texas and Will.

Anymore, I pretty much see something interesting and either tivo and watch the whole thing in a couple of sittings or hope it comes on Netflix as some point. Like Colls said, there's not a ton of discussion these days or at least if it's out there, I haven't found it, so other than the con I go to, I have way less fannish engagement with shows than I used to.

What TV have you been watching?
still on my NCIS:LA re-watch, have progressed to season five now

How do you watch?*
I prefer watching from DVD on my tv. My computer screen is too small for my preferences, and my couch is much more comfortable than sitting in front of my desk top pc. I still have an old tv that's not connected to my pc or the internet, and next month when cable switches from analogue to digital I'm probably losing almost all stations I still have available.

Because of my DVD watching habits I'm alway behind on everything. I don't mind spoilers, but I noticed that I often disagree with other people's interpretation of a character or something that happened on a show, which makes reading reaction posts difficult for me. Because I'm never sure if that's going to be the case, and it colours my enjoyment, or even makes me wary of watching.

Also, when I'm reading fanfic for a certain show, I like to be caught up with current events, otherwise I will constantly wonder if a character or event is part of canon, or if that's something the author has come up with.

What summer show are you looking forward to?
I'm trying not to think about it. I have so many unwatched stuff lying around, I don't want to arrive at the point where it's starting to stress me out. *g*

Serial Watcher intro

[personal profile] phantomas 2017-05-13 05:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Name Phantomas

What TV have you been watching?

A LOT. For Reasons. In no particular order, at the moment:

I'm finishing Luke Cage (Have watched Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Daredevil 1 and 2) so I'm ready for The Defenders, and hoping for The Punisher to come out soon.
I'm up to date with The 100 season 4, just waiting on the last two episodes of the season to be aired.
Excited for the eps of Agents of Shield .
Watched the first season of the Expanse, planning on starting season 2asap.
Watched first episode of American Gods and Handmaid's Tale. Having read both books, I'm curious to see how the adaptations fares. I may abandon AG for a while and catch up with HMT first, though.
Watching Vikings series 4, up to ep3 right now. Travis Fimmel's interpretation of Ragnar is amazing, a true acting tour-the-force. A long, long way from his Tarzan the series work.

I am behind with Arrow (up to S4), The Flash (beginning of S3) and haven't yet started Legends of Tomorrow.

Up to date with Big Bang Theory and Brooklyn 99.
Watched one random episode of the Killjoys and enjoyed it, but don't think I can fit it in yet.

I need to catch up with S11 and S12 of Supernatural. I love the show, watched it since the very beginning when every season was potentially at risk of renewal. Love the boys. At some point, got tired of some issues and moved away, but it is still one of my main fandoms (alongside The Professionals).

Up to date with The Walking Dead, still enjoying it even with all its faults (and they are many ;)
Up to date with Game of Thrones.
Want to watch the last season of Bates Motel, which is a great series and really well made and acted all around (imo).

Just finished watching the new series of Still Game, brilliant and funny Scottish TV series about two pensioners. Highly recommended for true, black sarcasm and Scottish mores, but the accent is quite strong, so be prepared.

There may be more, sorry, but yes, I am a Serial Watcher! (It's clear where my life is going, ops. I did study Film and Television for a Master degree, and I'm a writer, so me=narrative junkie).



How do you watch?*

I'm UK-based. Amazon Prime, Netflix, and, erm, other ways. I do like doing some weekend binge watching, especially once series/seasons are finished. I gave up on not being spoiled years ago - unless you completely avoid the net, there is really no way (that I could see, at least). I don't mind though, it's not necessarily WHAT happens but HOW it happens.


What summer show are you looking forward to?

Because of the above, no one show in particular? I don't really follow TV anymore, I 'consume' accordingly to what is available when I want to watch. I'll keep watching what I am watching at the moment, catching up with things, trying new ones.

Very excited to be here :) Sorry for the long intro!

I forgot I enjoyed immensely both Stranger Things (hopefully Season 2 will be as good) and the deliciously creepy Channel Zero: Candle Cove, I highly recommend it.

Oh, and Legion, Legion was interestingly filmed :)

And True Detective (season one!) was amazing and I am in love with it all. Didn't get past ep1 of Season2.

ETA: Also watched and loved Gotham (up to date, so waiting for new season, such a gorgeous production), Hannibal (lots of thoughts on this one!) and The Following.

What TV have you been watching? Barreling through S2 of Sense 8, probably will finish it today. Up to date on Agents of SHIELD, The Catch, and Quantico. 1 episode behind on Supernatural.

How do you watch?* Cable and Netflix, both streaming and discs. We've never subscribed to premium channels so I can generally only see those shows once the DVDs are out. Also handy for the many movies not available through streaming (at least on Netflix). We rely on the DVR for everything so what often happens is that Netflix streaming barely gets used during fall and spring but gets used regularly over the summer when there is less new programming available.

So basically the priority becomes (1) Watching the DVD right away to keep the turnover quick (2) Watching frequent programming like the Daily Show and Colbert ASAP both due to timeliness and reducing DVR storage (3) Watching other stuff based on the likelihood of either being spoiled (4) someone waiting to talk about the results (5) or level of interest in seeing it NOW.

We've done a free month of Amazon Prime but found the offerings rather limited. I think we used all the time watching Whitechapel and Alpha House. Really liked S1 of the latter, never got to see S2. Also never got to see all of Whitechapel because neither Amazon nor Netflix had the whole run.

What summer show are you looking forward to? Just checked out that calendar link, handy! However it seemed like some sort of deja vu -- is that for this year? I've got to say I'm surprised to see some titles on there as returning shows. I watched S1 of Wayward Pines and wasn't impressed. Ditto with American Gothic (and boy does it not hold up to memories of the original CBS American Gothic which was a completely different premise and way better). And I thought Beauty and the Beast had been cancelled long ago?

What TV have you been watching? Lately? A genre I call Netflix British Crime Serials. Caught up on Shetland and just finished season 5 of Death in Paradise (about which I have many strong feelings re: Poole vs Goodman).

I'm a season behind on Marvel and DC TV--I love Legends of Tomorrow. I hear Flash got a little less fun than I think Flash should be, I grudgingly follow Arrow, waiting for it to eventually get good, and Supergirl is...well, since KatCo is Kat free? Eh, my enthusiasm needs a tune up. I didn't care for Mon-El (that was his name, right? The obnoxious douchebro they kept trying to get to ship her with?). I want to catch up on the crazy WTF fest that is Gotham, too.

Caught up entirely on Walking Dead--man, I wish the first half of the season was at all as well paced and written as that second half! And caught up on HUMANS though I'm not sure I like how they've tweaked the premise.

How do you watch?* Netflix. I'm a shameless binger this year, since my schedule is so erratic I simply...can't be around for shows that air at scheduled times.

What summer show are you looking forward to? I want the DC/Marvel TV shows to come to Netflix! And more British crime dramas. And Preacher, really. I feel lame. I probably need to comb this site for recs for stuff to get excited about!

Death in Paradise is in my queue but I've been saving it for summer when I'll have more time. What do you recommend about it?

I've lost interest in all the DC shows but got much more interested in SHIELD in the last few months. I was interested in what you said about Humans, what did/didn't you like about it? (I'm caught up on it)

What TV have you been watching? Doctor Who. I've been casually watching it since Eccleston, but suddenly this season I've found myself actually loving the show and caring what happens in it.

How do you watch?* Seems like these days I mostly just rewatch my old favourite shows on DVD :D I'm watching Doctor Who 'live' on TV because it's airing in my country only a day behind UK. That's fairly unusual for me since usually shows are at least a season behind, which is why I don't often watch current shows. I'm so used to being behind that I don't even manage to keep up with Netflix :D

What summer show are you looking forward to? Sense8. Which is already out but I probably won't be able to see it until summer.

I had to laugh at your note about OuaT. I found the musical episode ok, but it was very Disney-esque. Which, I guess, fits the show. I confess I'm very surprised that it's continuing on.

I'm hoping the AoS creators take the right lesson from the success of the Framework storyline and do something interesting with S5.

What TV have you been watching? Selfie (rewatch), Master of None (s2), Designated Survivor, Lucifer, Bob's Burgers, Speechless, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Great News. I really need to catch up on iZombie. I finished The Killing a couple weeks ago and am in a right state. I miss it so much!
How do you watch?* I currently don't have cable so I tend to use Hulu for the majority of my watching. It's strange though because I still have the channels a lot of my shows air on but instead of sitting down and watching them live, I tend to wait until the next day when they're up on Hulu. I also use Netflix and I used to use Amazon Prime but stopped because $$.
What summer show are you looking forward to? The Defenders, Wynonna Earp. I'm not extremely exited for it but I'll probably end up watching the new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I'm a multitasker so I like having shows that I'm not enthralled in that I can have playing while I do other things. And in a guilty pleasure type way Big Brother and probably The Bachelorette because Rachel is adorable. Tbh, unless it's something I have zero interest in (like horror, too much of a chicken) I usually check out every new show, lol? Particularly if it's on Hulu. I did this with Great News and didn't even enjoy the first ep all that much but somehow I've watched every episode and it's grown on me. I'm weak like that.

I like having shows that I'm not enthralled in that I can have playing while I do other things.

This is the main reason I'm still watching several shows. I don't want anything I'm really engrossed in to be on while I'm cooking or washing dishes.

What TV have you been watching? Currently watching Elementary, Brooklyn Nine Nine, American Gods, Lucifer, iZombie, Sense8. Need to finish off The Expanse and Turn. I also just started watching season 1 of Wynonna Earp as it re-appeared here, but it's too early to see if it'll stick.

How do you watch?* Mostly on satellite, as I have Sky and we get the majority of the US shows at some point, sometimes within days of them airing in the US (although no pick-up for iZombie so far, I have no idea why!). I also recently got a good deal on Amazon Prime because I'm doing a part-time university course, so that has helped with a couple of the above too.

As for the time delay, when I was first in fandom we used to sometimes get episodes of Stargate SG-1 before the US and the amount of wailing from US fans was always entertaining in kind of shadenfreude ways. Before there was pressure from viewers to see things as soon as possible - in other words, before the internet, which made it possible to know about what was actually being shown - UK channels might show a series at some point, maybe in order but probably a year or more after it aired in the US.

For me, being mostly into older shows, the issue tended to be getting hold of decent copies of episodes for shows that still hadn't been released on DVD and there was no idea when they would be (if ever). For that, I relied heavily on the kindness of strangers and received all sorts of stuff from overseas, literally boxes full of VHS tapes of episodes. I still have a lot of them, even though I don't have a VHS player any more, because it feels kind of wrong to throw them out.

What summer show are you looking forward to? Definitely Killjoys. Does Preacher count too?

What TV have you been watching? Just Star Trek: The Next Generation. I'm boring, I'm sure. Oh and I watched Eurovision last night, does this count? haha.
How do you watch?* I watch my TNG Blu Rays. Otherwise I watch DVDs. I don't have Netflix or something. Not needed.
What summer show are you looking forward to? ---

Some of my earliest fandom memories--before I even realized fandom was a thing--was my friends and I watching ST:TNG every night after dinner. Definitely worth a rewatch and NOT boring!

What TV have you been watching? The Catch, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Doctor Who, Speechless, Archer, and a ton of Kdramas (about which I'll happily elaborate upon request).
How do you watch?* My TV isn't tuned, and my internet connection gets really crappy in the evenings so streaming isn't a viable option, plus I'm in New Zealand and NZ Netflix is pants. So everything I watch is on DVD or otherwise acquired. I use my local video rental place pretty often. /anachronist
What summer show are you looking forward to? I'm not in tune with live-to-air TV enough to answer that, and there's nothing major on my radar. I guess I'm looking forward to getting s2 of The Expanse on DVD and catching up with Sense8. Plus various Kdramas. :-)

What did you think of the ending of The Catch given that it won't return?

Also, funny story. We used to use our local rental place as well though we were constantly running into the problem of damaged discs. They'd give us credits but that was obviously a nuisance and non-productive after a while. We ended up doing a free trial of Netflix in order to finish watching a TV series (and have rarely run into a damaged disc despite it being mailed in flimsy envelopes!) We liked it well enough to sign up full time, especially since they'd begun streaming by then too and the two services were bundled. We still get the discs because even though the streaming is far larger now in terms of breadth of content there's still no guarantee we can see something online whereas it's much more likely via discs. The downside is that now it's rare to get a disc with extra features whereas that used to be standard.

Late to the party, as always.

Name Vaidah

What TV have you been watching? Finished up Big Little Lies last week. I NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO ABOUT THIS! OH MY GOODNESS!

How do you watch?* I watch a lot on netflix. A lot. We have cable, but the only things I actually watch live each week are Hawaii Five-O, Criminal Minds, and Blue Bloods. Mostly because my mom already has them on. I don't have amazon prime, but I do have hulu.

What summer show are you looking forward to? Killjoys!! Even though I still need to catch up on last season. Same with Dark Matter.

I only watched a random episode of Killjoys, but I see it mentioned often, so It is on my List. I used to watch CM all the time, I lost track of it now - but my favourite seasons are the ones with Gideon. Liked all the characters, though :)

I don't know anything about Big Little Lies, but I will listen if you want to talk about it. Or, you could do a Primer on it?
