TV Show On Winter Break? Try ‘Critical Role,’ A ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ Web Series
Bombardier Jedi   |  

Geek and Sundry's Critical Role

If you’re like me, you find that there is a slight lull in the TV viewing schedule around the holidays and during the months of January and February as some of the shows me and the wife watch regularly (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for instance) are on winter break.

So, in the mean time, I’ve come across a new show to obsess over and have become a weekly viewer. The best part is that it’s not even on TV as most people know it. The name of the show is Critical Role and it is shown on Thursdays on Twitch on the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel from 9-12 CST (most nights, they often play longer). You can also catch the episode on Mondays when it’s posted to Geek and Sundry’s web page.

You Can Watch Bob Ross Paint With Thousands Of Other People Right Now
The Movie God   |  

The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross

One of my many fond memories from childhood is sitting and watching Mr. Bob Ross paint on his show The Joy of Painting. I can’t tell you how many times I dozed off to his comforting voice, but I have no doubt the number would be astronomical. His impact on me has been a lasting one—right this very moment, I have 46 episodes of The Best of the Joy of Painting stored on my DVR for whenever I feel like throwing one on to fall asleep to (they air them on the TV channel Create). He wasn’t the greatest painter of all time, but he shared a technique that made it accessible to anyone, and did it in the most appealing way possible.

So you can imagine my joy at the news that Twitch is currently streaming all 403 episodes of Ross’s painting series as part of their new spinoff Twitch Creative where, instead of streaming themselves playing video games, which is what Twitch is best known for, users will stream themselves drawing, painting, and creating other forms of arts and crafts.
