I did not catch the Masked Singer when it was live on Fox Television. Reading about it online, and from some people at work who watched it, the show did not really interest me. Now that it is available on Hulu, I decided to give it a shot. The first show was interesting. Knowing whom was under the masks already did not really detract. I am one of the few people in this world who does not care if someone tells me the ending of a show or movie, if I want to see it, I see it. Knowing spoils nothing for me. Why? Because most people do not get the details correct.
As I watch the dual between the Peacock and the Hippo, I knew who was going to be chosen, and who stayed. It was a lot of fun to watch. The other duals were interesting as well. Some of the people had good voices for not being singers. As shown by many other talent shows, sometimes people are gifted natural singers. That is ultimately a good foundation for professional singing.
The Peacock was my favorite, knowing it was Donny Osmond under the mask. I have been a fan of Donny because I watched the Donny & Marie years ago, when there were only four channels of nothing to watch. Television was actually a lot better back then, because there was less competition. Now I sound like a grumpy old man. I also saw the Donny & Marie live show at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. I was the youngest person there.
Overall, if I had decided to try and watch the Masked Singer every Wednesday on Fox, I probably would have failed. Streaming services have changed my viewing habits to a point where I really do not want to watch a show at a specific time. I prefer to settle down at night, watch a few shows at my leisure, whether old or new. Making an effort at a specific time or date to watch a show now feels too restrictive. Life is now more free form.
I will finish out the series, and maybe try to give season 2 of the show a try.
Thanks for stopping by.
