  2. Merciful Zeus! That is impressive. I watched probably somewhere around 75 movies this year, and probably 50-some TV show eps.

    1. Well, I don't have three kids and a house to take care of so... ;)

      For tv I watched season 6 of Downton Abbey, both seasons of Better Off Ted, the entire series of Frasier, and season 1 of Murder, She Wrote. I also started Timeless which is a new show.

    2. Wait, I'm supposed to take care of the house too? Naw, then I'd never get anything at all watched!
