It’s been a long time, and I mean a long time, since I allowed myself to get totally locked in to watching a movie or series on TV. Yesterday Lou suggested I take a look at (the first episode of) this series she started checking out on Amazon Prime called Reacher. Ahh I thought why not. Most movies or shows she suggests I look at don’t quite capture my attention fully. Most of the time yeah, interesting enough to sit and watch the entire movie. If a series I’ll casually watch it and after, yeah it was okay. If it’s a series I’ll watch maybe a couple or three episodes and then go do something else, finishing up a series in a week or so… or lose interest completely.
I sat down and began watching Reacher. It caught my full attention and interest. It was only an eight episode series. We started at about 2:30-3pm. The rest of the outside world dropped off and faded away. We watched episode after episode until we finished all eight sometime after midnight last night.
I don’t know how well most liked watching it. I don’t know how it stacks up against other streaming media releases, say last week or for the month or however the heck they rate popularity of releases. I enjoyed it immensely.
