Chernobyl was excellent, but had some flaws.

It could be. I watch TV series all the time, although reruns too. The only ones I've seen this year are The Boys, The Madalorian, The Witcher and Game of Thrones. I hated the last season of Game of Thrones. The other shows were good.

Mr. Robot last season was some of the best TV I've seen since Breaking Bad I can't recommend that show enough.

huh, so streaming services are considered a part of Tv now? That's kinda weird.

i think most people do consider it TV. mostly to distinguish it from movies. i think the understanding is there that it doesn't actually have to be watched on a tv

It was the best year for TV for me in a long time. Hadn't cared about watching tv channels in ages, but decided to get an antennae to watch stuff now and then.

Ended up being transported back to a better time for sitcoms through reruns of older shows.

Yeah it was pretty great for me personally. Some great stuff came out in 2019 sure but I also saw some older stuff in 2019 as well.

it is and it isn't.

TV is television, so really anything viewed on a television is "TV". If I tell someone I am going to go watch some TV, that could mean literally anything.

But then again I think people's connotation of "TV" is viewing shows on cable.

I think it can go both ways, but in today's age I think you can include any series or show as "TV". I haven't had cable for about 15 or so years now.

I never actually thought of it in those terms haha
