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.
