We ran through a lot of old shows, notably The Office. We in fact watched all 195 episodes in December. There are 201 episodes, but honestly I zoned out during a few and did not feel honest counting them. This was assuredly to get it in before it left Netflix on 01/01/2021, and yes, we were up until about 3:00 am New Years Eve getting in the last hurrah of viewing.

Other notables include a slew of HBO shows like Game of Thrones and VEEP that I had always wanted to see but never had a chance to. Thank you, quarantine for making us so bored that I shelled out for the HBO Add-on on Hulu, which later translated to HBOMax.

Beyond that, requisite Simpsons, Seinfeld, and Sunny, but I was surprised when I got all the way to November without a South Park episode under my belt.

I would consider Ozark, Santa Clarita Diet, Cobra Kai, The Detour, Watchmen, Taskmaster, Chernobyl, Barry, and The Righteous Gemstones among my favourites this year, not totally in that order.

In 2021 I think I'll continue to log shows, but episodes are tough, especially while binging. It's a stress I don't really need, but it's fun to look back and remember what I caught this year. Here's to the process continuing!
