How many hours a week do you guys spend watching tv/movies? My wife complains that I spend too much time screenwatching, but good lord I don't think I can hold a candle to some of you folks!

+/- 2 to 3 hours a week.

well some people don't have kids or much of a commute
so that's a factor
currently I get about 7 hours a week in...usually after 9:30pm


9:30 (or later) for me too.

It varies, but I'd say on average maybe eight hours a week for me.

We married with childrens lead such predictable lives.

A week? hm...

It's hard to say... I feel like m TV is on a lot, but I'm on my phone, or reading, or going through my music streams, or working on design stuff.... "Watching" attentively I'd say maybe 10 hours a week? Between TV and Netflix and whatever streaming service I have.

Can't tell if I love High Maintenance or not. The 2nd episode stressed me out. I love the dog/dog walker episode though. Will keep plowing through it.

Insecure is great though.

I like Divorce much better than Insecure but I have a long standing mancrush on (the acting abilities of) Thomas Haden Church.

High Maintenance does reach that Portlandia level of irritation, but it does make me chuckle. Going to give it a couple more.

From AV Club's Year End Coverage

The worst performance of 2016
Bobby Cannavale, Vinyl


The single worst TV performance of the year?and arguably the worst to ever come out of HBO?s once-unassailable prestige-drama factory. Vinyl seemingly had everything it needed to be a critical hit: a rich, historical backdrop; the built-in erudition of record-collector geekery; the powerhouse production team of Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese, and Mick Jagger; tasteful nudity. Then Bobby Cannavale?s Richie Finestra came along to crush all those ingredients up and snort them, then scream about Bo Diddley as the camera zoomed in on his quaking, sweaty face. There were a lot of things wrong with Vinyl: its tired drug clichés; its office-party celebrity-impersonator versions of musicians like David Bowie and John Lennon; its pointlessly distracting murder subplot; those irritating, magical-realist musical interstitials. But all these flaws could have been? well, if not overlooked, then at least improved upon in the series? scrapped second season, had its main character not been so one-note-of-piercing-feedback. It was a blessing when HBO finally turned it off. Granted, Cannavale wasn?t given a whole lot to work with, as Richie was an unsympathetic dick by design. But the actor?so good in small doses, as on Boardwalk Empire?was so out of his element that it was morbidly fascinating, lacking the slightest shred of charm that makes even the most irredeemable antiheroes worth rooting for, radiating nothing but rage and smarm, and delivering every line like a brick hurled through a window. Our TV is in a better, more peaceful place without him, even if it means we?ll never enjoy the cheap laugh of watching him get all coked up and scream, ?These guys are the truth!? at an ersatz Ramones.

I thought the last episode of Sherlock was one the finest things I've ever seen on TV.  Turning Mrs. Hudson into a badass was genius.
