My Favorite Things Week #2: Streaming!

Favorite streamer of 2022 (paid): Peacock

Yeah, this is a surprise, but if you look at minutes watched, I think I spent more time per week on here than on any other paid streamer. Laurie and I still enjoy Murder Monday every week, even if I have been lax about writing it.  Then there was Little House for Season 10, and I watched my share of old-school wrestling on the WWE Network section.

The only dumb thing Peacock did was dropping Rockford Files. Well, and not getting Kolchak. And of course...

OK, it's not perfect, but it's good value when you are on a promotional deal!

Favorite streamer of 2022 (free): YouTube

Yeah, gotta be YouTube, which offers not just the heart and soul of old TV (at least until copyright police remove it), but the GUTS--the vintage ads, promos, bumpers, tel-ops, and more that made up the experience of actually watching TV in the Seventies and Eighties. YouTube is both the most frustrating and rewarding platform out there, and you have to watch what you want right away just in case, but I could live off this alone.

I don't want to, but I could.
