TV is a waste of time. I have not stopped all together but am very choosy. We have cut the cable cord and no Netflix. We watch a lot of Travel and DYI shows on DVDs. It's hard to find anything we can watch and eat popcorn with. Sigh.

If you don't mind subtitles, Korean Drama (Drama Fever) is what my family watches. The stories are entertaining. There isn't much smut and what sexual content there is, isn't shown, just alluded to. Laugh, cry, random dance/karaoke, and they all usually end with a wedding.

My husband and I watch an episode a night with our 3 yo. She is able to follow along and is starting to pick up Korean as well.

In case anyone wants some suggestions:

Another Oh Hae Young (hilarious romcom, considered one of the best) Goblin (fantasy, afterlife stuff) Miss Hammurabi (Korean SJW, but argues all points well) Jealousy Incarnate (another romcom) Strong Woman Do Bong Soon (comic book hero, violence similar to other violent Asian films so watch out if you have small ones)

No children here. But I must say that my husband stuffs in some sports and that has been taking up some of our time now and it's driving me nuts. He has always loved baseball but now that football is starting he watches a little of that too on and off. This also upsets me because the sports have been taken over as well. All the owners are involved in this that we are researching as well. They are into trafficked children too. I am going to go back to my crafts and sewing. I like to make things for Christmas. Thanks for the tips, will suggest these things and see how they fly.

'Straight-to-video' used to translate in people's minds to shitty acting, low quality and not worth your time. Somehow Netflix blurred the line with their 'originals' and got everyone to take shitty rushed acting, low budget no substance propagandized straight-to-platform shows and movies seriously as real productions. I haven't found an original on any of the streaming platforms that didn't give me this distinct feeling of very low effort.

I know people that stay in the whole weekend binge watching garbage. Garbage with pedo actors. Nothing coming out of Pedowood but Garbage. Bad acting, violence, sex, normalizing. We never go to any movies. Not for years. People throwing their good money away. I don't get it.
