Well, it sounds like I should give a couple of these another try.
One thing I've been doing intentionally lately is being more willing to bail on a show midway through. I've never really been that kind of person. If I started a book, I read it cover to cover, even if it was something I hated after 100 pages. I've mostly approached movies and tv shows the same way. If it was good enough to start, I felt like I owed to the creators to see it through. It's just that with streaming, there's so much incredibly high-quality content out there that it's hard to justify investing much time in programming that can't pull down at least a B+. Back in the olden days when we had three networks churning out lowest-common-denominator dreck, we all would have killed for B-level programming. I don't have time for that these days.
The downside of course is that you might bail on one prematurely, before you fully appreciate it or before it has a chance to get its hooks into you. (Again though, there are so many other things to watch/do though . . .)
