During the last one and half years, we all were lonely and bored. The onset of the pandemic and the consequent lockdowns kept us confined. The four walls of our homes would have driven us insane. It was our Idiot box that came to our rescue in the trying times.
Television not only comforted us, but it was also our companion. The TV helped us beat our loneliness and kept us entertained during the pandemic. On the whole, the following are the most-watched shows :
Although we have watched classics many times, we indulged in them again. Whether it was attending to domestic work or while working from home, the classics were there in the background.
The re-telecast of old serials
Consequent to the pandemic, shoots were suspended. Therefore, new episodes could not be aired. Hence, we witnessed telecasts of many old episodes and serials. Indeed, these stirred up nostalgia as many of us grew up watching them.
While surfing channels out of boredom, we stopped by to have a look at them. Tom & Jerry types reminded us of our childhood days.
Family Dramas are the all-time favorites of Indian households. During the lockdown period, the entire family was at home together. These family dramas kept them glued to their TV screens.
Definitely, the ultimate rescue from boredom was watching new series. These web series kept us hooked most of the time.
