It’s no secret that our streaming schedule is determined by who we’re with. For example, Stranger Things is an ideal show to watch as a couple. The Bachelorette is best enjoyed with a group of close-knit friends. There’s also a safe option like Schitt’s Creek, which never gets old.
But not every show should be watched together. It’s not that we don’t enjoy cringing at every sexual reference. Instead, we’re convinced there’s a generational gap in how people interpret a particular show. To put our theory to the test, we enlisted a Boomer and a Millennial, who both had never seen Virgin River. Still, they were willing to watch the first episode of the first season with the sole purpose of providing their thoughts as a Boomer (adults age 57 to 75) and a Millennial (adults age 24 to 40).
FYI: Virgin River follows a nurse practitioner named Mel, who moves to a remote town for a fresh start. The show is full of love triangles, twists and cliffhangers that keep you guessing until the very end, so buckle up, because there are four seasons available on Netflix.
Here’s what our test subjects had to say after their first viewing.
