On Demand has me hooked and the fall season of shows has begun

Greetings, readers. One day, I was watching On Demand from our cable system, Xfinity, something related to sports and during the commercial breaks they advertised three very good shows. As it turns out they are all related. They are NBC’s Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD. I have been binge watching, trying to get caught up for this week’s season premiers. I am hooked on these shows.

I also like NBC’s new hit Manifest, as well as Fox’s show 9-1-1 dealing with the Los Angles fire company. Jennifer Love Hewitt joined the cast of 9-1-1 and I have always liked her as an actress.

Back to NBC for a moment, this coming Wednesday evening all three Chicago series will cross-over, as they do quite often. However, this is being advertised as the cross-over of all cross-overs. Apparently all three shows will mesh for an in-depth episode dealing with all the characters. I find the cross-over idea extremely intriguing. Why can’t I write gritty screen plays for characters with so much depth that they feel real? I don’t know, I think I lack the tools.

I did not get a chance to watch the new series New Amsterdam, but they all go directly to On Demand twelve hours after airing, so if I wish to, I’ll take a compulsory look. I am intrigued by its premise of a doctor who says to hell with the rules and regulations, let’s help people. The only reason I didn’t watch it, was because they put it on Tuesday which is not a good evening for TV watching for me.

On to a different topic, wouldn’t you know it, while dictating this blog entry, my recliner/bed decided to break. I’m not going to mention where I bought it, I got it used, but I think they fixed it up just enough to sell it. I’m going to have lots of work to do, for now I have two dead recliners. I was hoping the blue one would hold out until Christmas, but it didn’t. Now I have to talk to my accountant and see if we can pry out of the budget enough for something new. I will not buy used again. I am leaning towards a love seat or sofa, once I get both broken chairs out of here to make room.

Well, there’s our blog entry for today. I might be searching for furniture next Thursday, we’ll see, but Rebecca and I will be back next Wednesday. Tomorrow or the next day, we are supposed to have blue skies. Gee, what’s that? Enjoy the good weather if you have it, and continued good thoughts for those in the flooded areas. Please stay safe.

Until next week, take care, have a wonderful weekend, and happy reading.
