I will give it a look. I am a couple episodes into the netflix Last Dance about the jordan era bulls. I am very much not a basketball fan but I was a teenager for that team and somehow its holding my attention none the less.
Wife and I just got into It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. As Philadelphians ourselves it’s kind of a shame it took this long. All that’s left is to go to Paddy’s on south street and order some warm milk
I love cyclocross for interval sessions. I can pay attention during the rest intervals, and zone out during the intense parts but still have the commentators filling me in in the background. The loop after loop nature of the race means I don’t feel like I’m missing much if I don’t pay attention for 8 minutes or whatever.
GCN race pass at $10/month is working for me right now. I’ll cancel after CX season.
If you haven’t watched The Queen’s Gambit yet, it’s a must watch, although it’s so good you might want to reserve that for off the bike. I’m in a bit of a lull at the moment, but I really enjoy Great British Baking Show for the trainer, as it’s not a huge deal if you miss something, and it’s weirdly addictive. I will also pull up podcasts, bonus if they release video along with it, this is my standard.
This is what I watched on my last long ride and it made me angry and sad. The final 10 years of the original presenters on top gear was some of the best TV ever made. How did they get from that to this garbage. They were all searching for the £100,000,000 when clarkson already found it from Amazon and has given up on bothering to make entertaining TV.
Adding always sunny and british baking to the list to try. Queens Gambit was great, wife and i watched that not on the trainer. I will give the cross races a try. Can you watch from the beginning of the season or do you have to pick up in the middle? I dont know any of the names/teams/etc so i would be starting a bit blind.
If you could buy the original BBC topgear for some reasonable price on any streaming service I would probably do so and watch that for lots of workouts. Its mentally easy, its loud blowing stuff up action to distract your mind from the 15th minute of threshold, perfect.
Mr. Mercedes S1 (not bad…big Stephen King fan so needed to watch it)
Queen’s Gambit (awesome)
But I am switching over to SSBHV this week, so any viewing options on the trainer will be limited now…up to tempo, I am OK with watching stuff. SS and above, I go for music.
The new boats are something else…I got into the AC back in the 12 Meter days. Lived in Newport during the 1980 Challenge and it was awesome to see the boats (and one race) in person. We used to ride our bikes down to the docks and walk around, looking at the boats. You coudl walk right up to them and no one said anything. I even stepped on board a couple without a peep…imagine doing that today!!
