Things have changed so much since I was a little girl. Seriously, my kids don’t know how easy they have it.
When I was little, if you missed the Saturday paper you not only didn’t get the REALLY good comics but you also didn’t get the tv guide.
Therefore, we had to watch the tv guide channel and if you even blinked, sneezed or answered the phone you’d miss the channels and have to start at the beginning. Channel surfing was easier but you had to wait till the commercial was over to find out what was on each channel.
If you weren’t home for your favourite shows you had to hope and pray you set the VCR up right for recording because who could ever figure those things out?! You’d get home to find out you DID set it up right BUT your VCR ate your tape…again!
Either way, it sucked!
Watch what you want when you want with Netflix
Thanks to technology and Netflix, the days of having to go through all that hassle to watch what we want is over. Now, with just a few simple clicks we can stream our faves no matter what time of day it is.
It doesn’t have to be Saturday morning to watch the good cartoons and if we really wanted too, Paw Patrol or Fuller House could be on all day – I swear, sometimes it actually is. I can wait until the kids go to bed to indulge in my guilty pleasures; Jane the Virgin, Party of Five and that mini tub of chocolate ice cream I’ve been hiding from the kids.
