With a new television season about to begin, viewers can't wait for the season premiers of their favorite TV shows, including long runners Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order: SVU, as well as high profile new shows, such as the Fox's country music drama Monarch or HBO's Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon.

Of course, the landscape of television has changed considerably in recent years, as evidenced by the fact that ABC's acclaimed Abbot Elementary was the only scripted network series to get any major nominations at the recent Emmy awards.

As a result, no one is beholden to tuning in when shows are on the air, or depending on their DVRs, or, for 80s and 90s children, VCRs!

More and more people watch their shows on streaming platforms, which means that not only can they watch current series the day after they aired, but younger viewers might also be able to binge classics like Friends or Will & Grace, as well as short-lived cult-favorites like Happy Endings or Freaks and Geeks.

As a result, many people's favorite show might be a show which ended its run several years ago.


Redditor stellar-being was curious to hear everyone's favorite show, old or new, which they are currently watching, leading them to ask:

Those 35 and older are frequently amazed by the fact that people are able to watch just about any show at any given time.

Though they're likely not complaining.

Who would complain at the ability to watch Rob Lowe smolder in 9-11: Lone Star, and then have him melt our hearts in Brothers and Sisters?

Married Couples Explain What They Wish Single Folks Knew About Relationships

Some people prefer being single. They don't have to answer to anybody, they can play by their own rules, and they can continue going about their day-to-day without accommodating the needs of a significant other.

But that status of perpetual independence can eventually hit a breaking point.

It makes one wonder while being single can be a convenience, are we meant to live alone forever?

Unfortunately, avidly seeking out a relationship is a hit or miss, so an individual's situation can be out of their control.

People Break Down Which Older Horror Movies Still Hold Up Today
Warner Bros.

Some horror films will never grow old. It's October! Get into the horror film spirit.

There are so many classics worth seeing. Last year, a friend of mine who had never seen too many horror films asked me if we could get together so they could enjoy some classics.

Of course we had to watch the original Halloween. They loved it. I wish I could once again experience what it was like to watch that movie for the first time. Living vicariously through their experience was well worth it, though.

When you're just starting to get to know someone, there are number of typical "icebreaker" conversations people tend to use to get to know one another.

Favorite films, books and tv shows, recent travel, hobbies, all shared in the hope of finding common interests.

If things seem to be going well, people often begin to get comfortable enough to move past the generic questions and begin to get more personal.

Which can prove to be a risky endeavor, as some intimate information might end up being revealed, which the receiving party wasn't quite ready to hear.

All scars tell a story.

Some scars people wear proudly, as they are possibly a reminder of their service dedicated to fighting for what's right.

Other scars might be more poignant, serving as a reminder of a life saving surgery.

And then there are the scars which we can only look upon with laughter.

The scars which we gained from such a ludicrous reason, that nobody will likely believe the story that comes with it.
