What to watch with no live sports: Bruins' 2013 comeback vs. Leafs

Losing live sports has been an odd adjustment. But, as everyone knows, we’re in uncharted territory.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Still, we all need something to help pass the time. There’s a lot out there. You can read. Board and video games are options. Maybe crocheting?

Personally, I’m going to rewatch and catch up on shows and movies. With there being so much out there to consume on these streaming services and even regular old cable, it can seem overwhelming.

Here are some recommendations for Tuesday, March 17:

SHOW

Westworld is back for its third season and I still haven’t watched a second of it. But the internet seems to be excited about it, so if you have HBO, now might be a good time to catch up.

Also, during a recent scan of Netflix, I realized they don’t have many notable original comedy shows. I liked Norsemen, but I don’t know that most people will enjoy the show — you will either love it or think it’s the worst thing ever. I’ve heard good things about Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. I know Dave Chappelle has some good stuff on there, too. But outside of the specials, not much original Netflix comedy content — and yes, I just gave you three options.

MOVIE

Was the baseball offseason a trying time for you? Are you frustrated with your team’s owner? Maybe your favorite team traded away its best player, who happens to be one of the best players in all of Major League Baseball? Well, if you head on over to YouTube TV, you’ll find 1989’s Major League is on demand. That might make you feel better about your team’s current standing — or it could serve a bit of foreshadowing.

But maybe you don’t have YouTube TV. Not to worry, Netflix has Major League II, so you’ll still get laughs and your baseball fix.

ON TODAY

Anyone itching to see Kevin Durant take the floor can catch him on ESPN 2 at 6 p.m. But he won’t be in a Brooklyn Nets uniform or even a Golden State Warriors jersey. The clock is getting turned all the way back to 2007, when he was playing in the Big 12 Championship Game for Texas.

Over on the main ESPN channel, you’ll have all the NFL free agency talk you’ll ever need after 2 p.m.

HIGHLIGHTS ONLINE

Got a hockey highlight for this edition of “What to watch with no live sports.” It was handpicked by WEEI.com’s Matt Kalman, and did he ever pick a good one.
