Remember the days of hanging around the water cooler, talking about what you watched on TV the night before? Thanks to Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services, those days are possibly over.
Shows that used to bring in millions of viewers in a single night made for some seriously good discussion the next day between co-workers and friends. Remember when you were wondering who shot J.R.? Talk about conversation starters.
Our TV-watching experience is different nowadays. While many may watch the same shows, they could be on completely different episodes or timelines. The chance of spoiling it for the other guy has skyrocketed.
Take for instance when Glenn recently gave up on co-host Stu Burguiere ever watching The Walking Dead.
“They killed Rick!” Glenn shouted Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.
(And no, the main character on the most-watched TV show wasn’t killed off in the season finale, Glenn was just showing his frustration for a geriatric Stu.)
“There are shows that you're not even watching," Glenn said to Stu, "And you say to us, ‘I might watch that.’ Oh, well, let us bow down, oh, great one, Stu. You might someday in the nursing home watch a show."
It's a big part of the culture to connect and talk about stories in pop culture, and Stu is spoiling that for Glenn.
"You're taking that fun away from us,” Glenn said.
The truth will set you free, and it seems the culprit not be Stu, after all.
“I mean, can you not talk about Lost because it's on Netflix?” Co-host Pat Gray asked Glenn.
“After I watch it.” Glenn answered.
“Make no mistake, Glenn Beck's standard is ‘after I watch it.’ That's exactly it. He's being honest. The only honest thing he's said here.”
