    Not the best season (no thanks to Covid), but the later episodes made up for some of the meh ones. The kids have been a good addition, IMO, too.

    Yeah, I can remember that problem from years ago. Not everybody has the luxury to raise the volume up to where they want it.

    Right. That's not even talking about an IMAX theater, either. Everything just seems more epic at the "cinema" compared to everything else.

    Well. I have a fine TV and sound system myself, yet it's still not close to theater level. I imagine that's the case for 99.99% of us, too.

    For people who don't mind the poorer visual and audio dynamics and don't like to go out, then probably no. For the majority, however, maybe? ;)
