Seriously, who knew I was missing this much television?
I canceled my cable MONTHS ago, when I discovered I could get a TiVo and watch Netflix streaming. Now, I have discovered a whole new world of television that I was not getting via basic cable. Just a few of the things I’m watching right now:
Dexter: I LOVE this show. Seasons 1 and 2 were good, but in Season 3 the show REALLY hits its stride, and I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the DVDs to Season 4. But first, I must finish Season 2 of
Damages: This has to be the most complicated show on television. Honestly, just when I think I have it all figured out someone comes along and throws a monkey wrench in the whole thing. It’s one of those shows you have to sit and pay attention to, or ten minutes later you’re going to be saying to yourself, “Wait, wasn’t that the OTHER guy???” Yeah, it’s intense.
Lost: Netflix was kind enough to put the first five seasons on streaming. I’m about a third of the way through Season 1 and I can’t. stop. watching. I just hope it keeps going at this pace – it’s HIGHLY addictive.
Buffy: Again, Netflix put ALL of Buffy on instant play. Keith and I have been watching this and I must say, this is one gem in the Whedonverse I really missed out on. Quirky, funny and some of the best one-liners out there.
And, let’s not forget all the movies you can get. Netflix streaming has tons of them, plus damn near anything you could want on DVD. The nice thing is that they carry a lot of indie films and documentaries, which are things you don’t typically get in movie theaters.
I’m having mixed feelings about my upcoming unemployment, because I think I may turn into a couch potato.
