TV has changed a lot over past few years, particularly in terms of off-season viewing. It used to be that in the off-season there were no new shows to watch, only reruns. Now we have Game of Thrones, Orphan Black and many more with short seasons to hold us over. Despite all this, reruns are still prevalent and in heavy rotation in between seasons. Do you bother with reruns? If so, which shows do you like to watch in the off-season?
I use to love reruns growing up, If I loved the show, I didn't care if I had seen it before, particularly sitcoms like the Simpsons, Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Blossom. Now, in a world where seasons are available on DVD or via streaming I understand why TV is starting to air short seasons during the off-seasons. Reruns just wouldn't be watched as much as they used to because people have more choices now. Still, even with all the new shows, as Vee said, they are hard to avoid.
I can always watch re-runs of 'Friends'. It's good just for chilling when I get home from work. It's kind of my cut- off, from work to home; I often have it on in the background, while I cook dinner. I have most of the seasons of it on dvd, but I still get a smile out of watching it on tv, spontaneously! Never too old.
