I've been a Survivor fan since the first Season, but I have never liked Sandra. That's all I'm going to say about this season in my non-spoiler way.

I didn't start watching Amazing Race until a few seasons, there are reasons why it wins more awards than Survivor but it's very different so maybe that makes it easier. I think it was up against Lost or something though... that's the usual reason I can miss really good shows is because I'm watching something else.

Oh dear, talking about Amazing Race brings up the "watermelon to the face" which has become a bit of a family meme. Easy to google. It's worth reading the full story.

Iceblossom- I am, quite frankly, addicted to baseball. I watch nearly every single Yankee game. I'm really going to miss that. Who knows when they will be able to play? But it is what it is.
I love audiobooks. I must go through 4-5 per week, no joke! I have Audible but get whatever I can from the digital library first.
But for me, Audible is awesome.

DH is stubborn and won't cut the cable. I watch Amazon Prime, Netflix, Acorn, Britbox and PBS Masterpiece. I told him all his favorite channels have a streaming service but he wants his cable. My streaming bill is 1/4 of what his cable bill is. He is reading a book the whole time he watches tv. Makes no sense to me but he's happy. I have no favorite tv shows at the moment. I use to watch Project Runway and now the new version with Heidi and Tim is on Amazon Prime. Lots of reality type shows stream especially from other countries.

My current favorite is Homestead Rescue on discovery channel. If you like Life Below Zero you might like this too.

I love British shows! Have been trying to decide between these two. Which one do you prefer?

Thank heavens for audiobooks and digital books, am I right? My library has shut down but I can still check out books in my jammies.

We have been watching Bob Hearts Abishola. It's a fun new comedy. Other than that I keep up with all of the Dateline, 2020 and 48 Hours. My hubby watches news.

Peckish, I second that. We can still get our books and audiobooks.
I'm with Onebyone on cable. My husband won't get rid of it and we watch about one hour a day (the news) That's it!
We have Netflix, Amazon Prime, and MLB. Those are what we watch.

However, it's not a deal breaker. As long as he doesn't mind paying for it I'm not going to worry about it.

Claire, Hubby has been watching Bob Hearts Abishola, it's ok. Doesn't really make me laugh but it's ok -- which is better than the comedies that annoy me.

Movie-wise we just watched Tag, that did make me laugh. I do like ensemble pieces.

Masked Singer was finished before it was shut down, so no more worries on that. Hubby got one right! First one in 3 seasons.

About 5 out of the next 7 books I have coming off hold are non-fiction. Last night it was Humble Pi, A Comedy of Math's Errors

Tonight I have a fiction, author I like but new-to-me series.

Still open for suggestions -- I need more input!
