DH and shows

DH and I have completely different tastes in tv/movies/music/ etc.

He likes real life drama and hates procedurals.

I love fantasy/superhero (think CW shows) and hate serious drama.

We also try not to watch the cool new thing because the hype affects our judgment.

All thi to say, anytime he finds a show both of us MAY like, he asks to watch it. We put on the pilot and 10 minutes in he's asleep! Then wakes up at the end and asks "what'd I miss?" and if we end up trying to watch the next episode he's lost interest because he doesn't know most of the plot of the pilot.

We currently have 3 shows we "started watching."

Anyone else have this problem? What shows are in your queue?

We watch zero shows together and I'm ok with that lol I love certain shows and I'd rather enjoy it on my own time without commentary lol

Re: DH and shows

I am your husband in this scenario and my DH hates it too. As much as I try to watch whatever he puts on, I lose interest fast. I don't fall asleep right away, but I'll start sneaking peaks at my phone and he gets all pissed.

What we watch together and enjoy:

On Reg. TV:
station 19
modern family
big bang
MTV - The Challenge and Vinny & Paulie D's Double Shot (It's a guilt pleasure of ours lol)
Shark Tank

Netflix Currently watching:
Gotham - This is his pick and I humor him but really play toon Blast on my phone through most of it )
Dead to me
Santa Clarita Diet

I know I'm missing stuff because we watch a lot of crap lol But this is what I can think of right now

Re: DH and shows

I have that problem but I am the one to fall asleep. We usually just watch our own shows or I will watch a show and he will play on his iPad and vice versa.

Re: DH and shows

We watch the majority of TV together but we also have a couple of independent shows.

DH watches game of thrones and silicon valley by himself.

I watch MTV shows by myself (teen mom, jersey shore, double shot, the challenge stuff)

Together we watch pretty much alot of netflix, hulu, amazon, hbo series stuff together. (Things like westworld, handmaids tale, mrs. maisel, stranger things, etc. etc.) We don't usually watch anything on the main stations (abc, nbc, cbs, fox, cw) although we both enjoy superstore and brooklyn 99.
