    My daughter finally agreed to watch Firefly. Now she's furious with Fox for cancelling it :D

    I don't have a comcast cable box.. I just went to peacock.com.. isn't there some way to log in with my xfinity credentials?
    (and then hopefully use it on appletv?)

    I don't want ads, but still would sign up for it if it's "free/included"..

    googled better, and found it:

    The Apple TV process works similarly to the HBO one... you tell it that you belong to Comcast, there's a code on the screen that you enter into a website, etc.

    Most services work like that. You either put in your email credentials or use the code on the TV at a website, then they usually ask you to login with your provider's credentials (Comcast DirecTV or whatever).

    sweet home, al
    when you choose the $4.99 mid-tier premium option on peacock, there's a notice at the top that it's included at no additional charge with certain providers, and a special link for comcast at the bottom to associate your comcast log in with your peacock log in (we'll see how long it works!).

    I doubt they'd be scheduling it to end if it were even remotely as popular as it once was. I think the ratings have fallen pretty sharply.

    This chart claims to reflect the ratings of each episode, but only goes through Season 9. I'm guessing S10 was even lower:

    Oh wow, thanks for that info! IIRC, I left at S09, E02 (either E01 or 2). That's quite a reduction in viewership! Guess I wasn't the only one. :D

    yeah but like I said, it DIDN'T immediately recognize/ask me if I was a comcast customer. I had to go to that subpage.
    MAYBE if I put in the comcast email address when first signing up, it would have then realized.

    OK, just checked. It's "only" 8 episodes, but they're all available now. I see that you can get a 7 day free trial of the commercial free version.. heh... so some eon I'll probably do that, binge all of these episodes. (I already pay for other commercial free streaming and TiVo way more than I can watch.). Though I might watch ONE ep with commercials to see how intolerable they are.
    (I play Words with Friends, it has ads.. and at least with the volume turned off, it's tolerable most of the time.)

    oh yeah, I realize streaming doesn't have to be a specific length.. but the 8 eps are listed as IIRC 21, 22, 23, and 25 minutes long variously (the last one the only 25 minute one).

    I don't believe I ever signed up for anything. I just downloaded the Peacock app onto the Apple TV and went directly to activating. I can't recall if it ever asked me for a login when activating, but if it did, my email that my Comcast account uses is not a Comcast email.

    I read some episode synopsis and that is exactly where I ejected as well (E02). Weird.

    We still have all of season 9 and season 10 sitting on the DVR. Usually when a series announces it's ending, that's when we decide to go ahead and hump through to the end. Given there are like 5 spin-offs and apparently movies in the works, I don't see much chance in them resolving things in the series finale (even money they just kill of everyone who doesn't have a deal for a spin off). So we're seriously considering just stopping. The season 8 ending was actually not a horrible place to stop.

    I was very burned out on TWD after the Saviors seasons, but the last couple seasons have been better. If you have watched through S8, I would recommend continuing.

    One season with the Saviors would have been enough, imo. It was really torture-porn. I agree that it improved greatly.

    Yeah, what I'm recalling is that I watched S09, E01 and was about checked out but decided to go ahead and let E02 record. I began watching that episode and don't recall how far I got but I knew I was totally out. I struggle to deal with something that is just so repetitive. It's find or create a new community. Everything is good, all things considered. Then a bad guy, or bad guys, come along and by the end of the season that community is destroyed. People spread out and some dead. Rinse and repeat.

    S9 of Walking Dead did have a twist--it just moves too slow. Still I enjoyed it. Of course a lot of the original stars are gone..... :(

    That's actually one of the best parts of the more recent seasons. I was so tired of Rick.
