To be fair, this description did rule out several shows.
Lookin’ at you, Last Man Standing.
Mom On Social Media:
"It’s for fit people to social media each other." - On Fitocracy
"Like…I read it? Is that where the name comes from?" - On Reddit
"It’s OK to not know what a meme is. I mean, I don’t even know what a meme is!" - On memes
"I’ve lived my whole life without knowing you’re supposed to post old pictures of yourself on Thursdays." - On Throwback Thursday
The response my mom gave when I told her Inside Llewyn Davis was categorized as a “musical or comedy” by the Golden Globes.
My mom would also like there to be a skip theme song option on streaming sites so that TV marathons aren’t unduly burdened by constant theme song repetition.
My mom’s inhuman dislike for animation gives her a disorder that renders all similarly themed animated shows as identical.
I got the following note recently from my mom in the morning after a particularly late night of Scandal marathoning:
"Can you take the dog out? I’m SO tired! #scandaliskillingme"
The best thing about watching Scandal with my mom is that she whispers “scandaaal” every time there’s a twist and/or a character does something….well….scandalous.
The word scandal has thus ceased having meaning to me. Like when you say “spoon” over and over again until it stops sounding like a word that exists.
