I started playing, streaming and watching Warzone gameplay on Twitch. Good thing it dropped when it did otherwise I'd be getting stir crazy

Hard to get viewers on Twitch tho because everyone and their grandma is streaming it now lmao

I bought myself an XBox One yesterday on the basis of keeping myself entertained in the case I get quaraunted, and loaded Red Dead and The Witcher III, both of which I have never played before.

Also got NBA 2k20... Maybe I'll just watch simulations when I get bored, ha ha.

Kidding, with Jim carrey. kind of a quirky dramedy type show. I really enjoyed it.

Any new shows from 2019-2020?

I just finished See from Apple +. Now I'm starting servant.

See is pretty good if you liked Spartacus. Some over the top action with blind people....they actually make it work. Story is wonky but worth it

Servant is interesting so far.

On AppleTV+, The Morning Show is excellent. I just finished watching Mythic Quest and I enjoyed it a lot. Dr. Positivity gave a lot of praise to For All Mankind.

Lots of good shows posted but my favourite in no order that are completed and/or currently running are:

The Wire (probably the best show all time)
Breaking Bad
Game of Thrones
Westworld
True Detective (S1 is some top notch TV)
Better Call Saul
Barry
Atlanta
Billions
The Handmaids Tale
The Affair
Chernobyl
Succession
The Night of
Homeland (S1 is one of the better seasons for any show, sort of falls off afterwards though)
Sneaky Pete (S1 is great, S2 is meh, S3 is meh)
Twin Peaks

On another note, I just realized HBO is the goat at making content.
