As the cases of the novel coronavirus continue to rise in Arkansas and around the country, the roots to our slippers and couches plunge deeper. We’re stocked up on food and toiletries. We’re taking the necessary precautions with social distancing, looking out for ourselves and our neighbors. But, selfishly, we’re also a little bored.
Fortunately, the modern world is already halfway set-up for us to quarantine to the couch — tablets, smartphones and laptops are no strangers to most of our homes. On the tube, a myriad of streaming services are available, filled with old shows, new shows, movies, documentaries and more.
But if you’ve already tapped out Tiger King and whizzed through Love is Blind, there’s still plenty to keep you occupied by the ancient code of cords. Cable television has a stacked lineup this weekend.
