Cohn Zohn

Lowell Cohn's pertinent and impertinent take on sports


Thank goodness for Netflix. Because Mrs. Cohn Zohn and I are pretty sick — we’ve been reduced to the chicken soup level — we are watching all kinds of TV series we mostly get from Netflix. We are in the first season of Homeland which I like a lot. We also are watching The Killing, also very good. And we are watching The Hour on BBC TV, which I like. So there’s lots of TV around here.
