As a child born in 1986 i watched TV series “The A-Team” quite frequently, but never got to watch all five seasons. In early 2016, i picked up a BitTorrent client for a month and downloaded my favorites from the past. I already had some of them in my archive, like Simpsons or Futurama. But i still wanted to have “Stargate SG-1”, “Married… with Children”, “Hogan’s Heroes” and The A-Team.
The final episode aired 30 years ago, it is really old, but i have a sentimental connection with the series, it gave me the urge for justice. I watched the last episodes of The A-Team in a hotel room, while i was in Helsinki to fold origami cranes and i’m satisfied with it.
I grew up with “The Simpsons” and probably watched all episodes, back then, when i had a dedicated TV. Now it’s not the case anymore, since i wait till the season is over, and have the opportunity to get it all in one step on my hard drive. I never got to watch the newest episodes anyway, because they needed to be translated for the German audience, which takes a while. But now i enjoy the original version.
Another TV series i binge-watched was “Married… with Children”, which is quite similar with The Simpsons. Both are showing parents with some kids, where life was not always nice to them, but they can make it through in some way, because it was their passion, which is one of the reasons i like them so much.
