My Take
The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was Film and TV.

TV and movie watching experiences were the best in the 2000s.

Television in the early 2000s was a time of innovative storytelling that captured the attention of viewers. If you’re a millennial like me, chances are you once stayed home from school “sick” and watched Judge Judy get sassy, Jerry Springer start fights and The Price is Right.

TV shows had to deliver results, or they’d be canceled. Sorry, but definitely not sorry, Firefly.

Since 1996, Judge Judy has delivered time after time. Each episode for the past 25 years has been the exact same thing, but it’s a testimony to what TV has always been – a form of entertainment.

Streaming is nice, but I miss the nostalgia of going to Blockbuster on a Friday night, renting a movie a friend had suggested and then discussing it later on.

Those were the good ol days.
