So, I was so tired of watching and hearing the MSM bash Biden and anything Dem while praising

the GOP and how powerful and shred McConnel is i asked my granddaughter to name a good series to watch on TV.

She said, "Home Economics." So i started the series now I can't stop watching. I had never heard of it before but it is a welcome diversion. Anybody else??

1. Netflix is your friend.

We are watching High Seas right now just about to finish it up. Previously watched The Cook of Castamar, Cathedral By The Sea, Sex Education and Love in Time of War Morocco and Marseilles. All were very good series.

I highly recommend turning off the entire spectrum of MSM and seeking your news elsewhere. I use NHK, DW, France 24, BBC, PBS & NPR as they all pretty much skip the talking head filling airtime between ads for drugs we never knew we needed.

2. Often anything other than MSM is a relief. MSM only cares about their bottomline profits.

They will air anything to make a buck. Now, it's ripping apart Biden.

7. I accidentally turned past TBS one night and saw Big Bang Theory.

I was enchanted by Melissa Rauch, so I started watching those. Now they're preceding BBT with Young Sheldon, and I'm watching that too. Trouble is, it takes up too much of my evening several nights a week.

9. Season 5 of Young Sheldon starts tomorrow night, yay!

I also love re-watching Big Bang Theory for the escapism and the laughs. My current semi-new series on Amazon Prime (free with Acorn) is The Brokenwood Mysteries. It's New Zealand's version of Misomer Murders with an amazing musical soundtrack. The main character is a detective who's a big country music fan, which I am not, but I really enjoy NZ's bluesy version of country songs sprinkled throughout the episodes. Critics have complained about episode length (1.5 hrs w/no commercials) but I love it because it allows more room for character development and intricate stories.

8. Yeah, been turning it off and watching other stuff.

Almost anything is better than watching MSM say the same things over and over. Iím catching any new news mostly on DU. I still DVR Rachel and Lawrence.
