I don’t watch much TV. Actually, I get pretty annoyed when Ranchdude turns it on during the day while I’m working.

In the evenings I do watch some TV, although in summer evenings I’m probably outside until dark.

Anyway, I’m looking for some TV shows to get me through the doldrums of winter. I tried Letterkenny, but made it about four minutes before shutting it off. We ended up watching The Boonies, which was kind of interesting but after a few episodes, it began to look overly dramatized. Reality TV is generally not my thing.

Living with all these males, I’ve already seen about every Marvel product out there. I’ve also watched pretty much every Dr. Who episode. Sci-fi is something I generally like, so if there are good series in that genre, I would check those out.

I’m always a sucker for travel shows, especially when they involve local foods.

Any good ideas for me Corn Nation?
