I am. I don't know a single television show that is currently on except for The Walking Dead. I didn't know who the Duggars were (glad of that) and I almost never know who any of the people on the covers of the magazines at the check out line are. How's that for being out of touch? LOL.

I had never heard of the Duggars either. And, I wear that like a badge of honor.

well, if you don't listen to that genre, and your peer group doesn't...and many people in their 20's might not know who they are...it's not that unusual. i wish i didn't know who they were. lol she's not missing anything. (sorry, no offense to all the ac/dc fans here) Tongue

There is one show that I watch on one of the big three networks and that's 'The Blacklist'...just cannot resist James Spader.

I watch 'Game of Thrones' and 'Best Ink'. Other than those three I have been out of the primetime TV loop since my husband went on day shift about nine years ago. Ya know, I don't really miss it.

The shows I do watch, I usually DVR for later.

Only reason I've seen the Duggars is due to my patients watching it in their rooms and from Facebook posts. My only shows are Walking Dead and The Bachelor/ette - but I've missed the last few seasons of those, as well (the Bachelor is social for the women in my family - we all drink wine and either watch it together or text each other).

I never know what movies are playing in the theater either unless someone else is talking about it and I google it - I don't get the advertisements. I went years without cable and got accustomed to doing without. It does make football season tough, though. I mainly stick to Netflix and Amazon Prime if I'm going to watch something.

Everyone at work talks about House of Cards.
