Walking Dead Withdrawal

It has been 29 days since my shoulder operation.  My friend Beesley suggested that after the operation that I should binge watch something that I want to watch so as to take my mind off of any pain that I might have.

Immediately after the operation I started rewatching The Walking Dead from the pilot.  I watched it heavy for 4 days and then just 2 to 3 episodes per day after that.  Now I have officially caught up because I just watched last week's episode a second time.  

This current season isn't over. The show has three more episodes this year and then some more episodes to finish season 6 starting February 14th.

I am surprised by how much I really enjoyed watching the episodes again.  This is really great drama.  The show is also more gory than I remember it being.  If one can ignore the gore, then the drama and the characters are really wonderful.

When you watch a series that you enjoy on a daily basis, it becomes something really pleasant that you look forward to.  I am sure that television stimulates endorphins.  Now I am in withdrawal from one of my favorite TV shows. 

Hmmm, maybe I will watch the Supergirl pilot.

BTW, my shoulder is frequently sore, but that is mostly from physical therapy.  I seem to be recovering nicely.  I have about 4 more weeks to go before I can get rid of the sling.

Just for the record, I have watched the TV series LOST three times.
