I'll get the ball rolling. I'm rationing Married With Children from the beginning. I'm trying to picture what quarantine in the Bundy household would look like. No matter how bad we have it, Al would have it worse.

Signed up for a Hulu trial and am binge watching Fargo. I have about ten short boxes of unsorted TPBs and an equal amount of magazines that I keep telling myself I should get to. I'm thinking about doing some painting, but that means work.

Lately I turn on recorded Married With Children episodes when going to bed. I still enjoy them but they do put me to sleep. I may still fantasize about Kelly Bundy.

I watched the first episode. I remember seeing it years ago and not being
impressed..I still am not. I liked the show ,just wasn't crazy about the pilot.

I also watched, for the first time ever, the unaired pilot to Lost in Space. No Dr. Smith or Robot. Interestingly, they managed to fit many of the scenes into later episodes. Strangest thing was in the pilot, Penny was a genius, not Will.

Like many shows, it started slow. Had to find it's way.

Jet Blue somehow was showing the pilot of Modern Family months before it aired. I loved it and was talking about it long before anyone knew about it. That show hit the ground running

Definitely in my top 3 TV Series.

It wasn't until the second attempt at watching it that I realized how good it really was. I think you have to make sure you get at least three or four episodes in before you decide one way or the other.

I am in limbo. And that is the worst. Each day I discover whether or not I will return to work the following day. I have seen 95% of my friends and coworkers let go. Each day is a new reality with no certainty beyond those 8-24 hours.

The uncertainty has me bordering on depression. I have planned for either outcome... if laid off - I plan to get drunk and lose the first half week - then tackle many things I have put off for far too long. If employed for the duration - exploit any and all opportunities to increase future wealth - short of price gouging or exploiting someone worse off than myself.

Instead- it's sleep well, I'll most likely kill you in the morning. This new reality is unsettling. Will my neighborhood band together and serenade each other nightly like Italy? Or will there be rampant survival of the fittest? And fark me - on my way to work- could I possibly find toilet paper?? Seriously? Toilet paper???

I sit here, no ambition to do jack squat but watch the market ping pong with no rhyme or reason as my only entertainment. Id love to watch Chernobyl or Altered Carbon or a multitude of other shows... or play some games.... instead, I sit frozen in this uncertainty.....

Hi LVJ, I know what you mean. Some of us are sort of like rabbits caught in the headlights. With stacks of time on my hand and stuck at home, I'm still procrastinating on all those chores that surround me.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..
