  • In Advice Corner with Chris Evangelista:

  • The Advice Corner theme song was created by Love you Wally.
  • Sean from Boston writes in "Chris, I am a young professional who, like many millennials, still lives at home.  It's just my Mom and I, and for the most part our daily fair of shared TV viewership includes nothing but binging our backlog of Jeopardy, and House Hunters from the DVR.  Sometimes though we want to watch a movie, and this is what brings me to your corner for advice. Typically, when we decide we to watch a movie, my Mom insists on scouring the streaming services for something to watch, and this process can take what feels like hours. Not only that, but the films she often gravitates toward through this haphazard process are, shall we say, not of a high standard of quality.  I know I should be patient and flexible, but with so many good movies out there to watch, both new and old, I need a fair democratic way of selecting something to watch. I'd like you to take this opportunity to help friends, roommates, and significant others everywhere who are frustrated by the shared media consumption selection process, and come up with a set of rules governing this "Chris Approved" method.   Personally I'm partial to making a list of movies we each want to watch, then eliminate all that do not overlap, and go from there, but I leave this question open ended for you to be creative with finding a fair solution that is as simple, or as complex as you wish to make it."
