Cord-Cutting + Pandemic = Binge Watching

Having cut-the-cord late last year and switched to YouTube TV along with a handful of other streaming services, it’s no surprise that some binge-watching would result. Throw in a pandemic and 6 months of “lock down”, however, like most folks, the TV-time has bumped up significantly. I won’t say I’ve been completely glued to the TV but I certainly have run through a few shows that I probably would never have bothered with. Here’s my ever-growing list of COVID-19 inspired, binge-watched, television programming:

  • Baptiste (PBS Passport, Season 1)
  • Downton Abby (PBS Passport, Seasons 1-6)
  • Beecham House (PBS Passport, Season 1)
  • Firefly (Hulu, Season 1)
