Do you rewatch programmes? Why do we do this?

And then with Star Trek, Star Trek has often kind of broke the mold and brought on new things. Obviously, the original show brought us the first interracial kiss on TV. So I realized that I feel very safe and comfortable watching things with people who are almost like the underdog, who are the minority, who are the representation of little bits of me or friends that we don't usually get to see. So that again just brings comfort

That's one thing that I really like about it. We get to sort of reinvest in some of the things that we value. So I'm really glad that you touched on what you value in those shows because think it comes down to that. I can't think of anything that I watched just for the sake of candy, other than one particular film, but that's another post. Thanks so much. Bye

But the shows I am going to mention first by and large, are around really center around really unpleasant people. The shows are Arrested Development, Community and Faulty Towers, and all of these sitcoms are about flawed people. But here's the thing. The reason I go back to them is that they are brilliant examples of form, perfection of form precision, especially because a lot of these episodes are classic examples of farce, which is really difficult to do as a young person

The other thing that you mentioned, little women, I must ask you, which film version do you re watch? I absolutely adore the one with Juanita Ryder and Susan Sarandon. I haven't seen the older version of that the one before that, but I know that does exist, and I haven't been able to bring myself to what's the new one? Because I think I would just compare it to the Susan Sarandon one, though I am very curious

And I found that actually the way it's written to do all of the comedy side and then completely drop you and build you up and you're laughing in the next minute, something horrendous happens and it just drops you like that and it plays your emotions. And I was like, wow, this is really clever

How can you beat a cast of Gabriel Byrne, Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, Claire Danes, my goodness, right. And Christian Bale, but it really in its own right, tells the story from maybe certain different angles. That makes it definitely different enough to appreciate all on its own, particularly with the way that Gorwig has framed it, and it is framed quite a bit differently. And I do like that. There is more emphasis on Meg or Sorry Joe and her writing and made me cry

Hey, Tasha, this is an interesting swell. And yes, I do rewatch programs from time to time. Specifically. If it's English sitcoms, I think I end up watching Friends, which is pretty basic, but that's what I watched before when I was younger and now years later, if I feel bored or lonely, I would watch one episode or two. Yes, there is comfort with the familiarity

So that's the other thing I'm kind of hearing and feeling is that like, you know, people we watch these things not only because the entertainment and the fun, but also makes us feel, and it makes us remember things or it adds something to us or helps us relax. And Tim mentioned called artwork. And it really is artwork. I think that's what I'm really getting from this is actually programs are not just about the people and about just watching a program

So the Hunter back in Notre Dame, the Disney version. I remember when I was a kid watching it and seeing the kind of Disney side of it. And I remember we were watching it as an adult because I am just a big kid and love Disney forever and really seeing the darker side of it. The song from I think his name is Rollo was very dark and very sinister
