Catching Up

We are still (mostly) in the Christmas broadcast TV hiatus, although shows are starting to trickle back into our view. This means that we are catching up on shows that we recorded for later (Arrow) and watching streaming TV (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel). The latter, we just started watching recently when we ran out of back seasons of The Flash. We have concluded that it is funny and *definitely* not something we can watch around the kids.

One of the interesting things about watching TV together is that Gretchen and I both have a tendency to fall into distinctive speech patterns that we've been listening to. This means that our dialogue can go completely off the rails depending on what we've been watching, heading off to Rob and Laura (or sometimes Rob and Sally), or Castle and Beckett, or even McGarrett and Danny.

Watching a show with as much stand-up comedy in it as Mrs. Maisel is *particularly* hazardous.

But funny.
