I know runners like to brag about how little TV they watch because they’re too busy you know running/being outdoors? But confession time, I probably wouldn’t make it through Boston training or even half my workouts (or even my Sunday session binge cooking/binge watching) without my TV without the actual TV (try saying that 10 times). As much as I like to brag about being a hardcore New Englander, I don’t really enjoy being out in high negative windchills. I do what many animals do, hibernate!
Fact, I haven’t had a “TV” for over 12 years when I first went to college and no I don’t really miss it. I’m never really around when things are actually scheduled and I tend to bounce around from a marathon viewing session, to 20 minutes of an episode of something while I do one of my youtube workout videos.
Watch tv without tv! All you have to do is press play from your desktop and watch your latest full episodes of NBC shows the day after they air. Or watch them all in bulk on a cold snowy or just lazy day with NBC TVEverywhere. I can simply watch one of my NBC favorite shows right from my laptop. No TV provider or cable required! And yes, it’s free.
One of my favorite TV shows was recently “reborn” as Heroes Reborn
From creator/executive producer Tim Kring, who imagined NBC’s original critically-acclaimed 2006 “Heroes” series, comes “Heroes Reborn,” an epic 13-episode event series that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.
A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives. Two such vigilantes include Luke (Zachary Levi, “Chuck”) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss.
Noah Bennet, a.k.a. H.R.G. (Jack Coleman, “Heroes”), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski, “A to Z”) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy.
While in hiding, some are discovering their newfound skills. Meanwhile, the head of the highly successful tech conglomerate, Renautas (Rya Kihlstedt, “Masters of Sex”), has an agenda of her own.
For better or for worse, some are fated to cross paths with assorted heroes of the past, including Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.
