“I mostly watch animated shows and movies. If it’s live action,  I watch ones based on, fantasy or fictional stories in general. I don’t usually watch romance or slice of life, but I do like horror and adventure. I mostly like zombie or vampire movies. Maybe if something becomes popular I’ll catch wind and watch for myself. My favorite shows are Seven Deadly Sins, Devilman Crybaby, and Beast Stars.”

Mrs. Ali Hobbs emphasizes the importance of quality time during the pandemic.

Mrs. Ali Hobbs says, “I do watch Netflix. I like the NCIS series of shows, so when I have time to relax, I usually watch those. Over the pandemic shut down, my daughter and I loved watching Schitt’s Creek. We agreed we could both watch it over and over! I also watched The Crown. I don’t watch a lot of tv, but when I do, I usually watch through Netflix.”
