Netflix is way too cool!

As many of you who read this blog might have noticed, I'm a wee bit obsessed with movies and such. It may come as something of a surprise, then, that we JUST signed up for Netflix on Tuesday. I think this was mainly because I was a bit leery of mailing DVDs in thin paper envelopes--seemed like a sure way to end up with really scratched up DVDs. However, it seems that this is not the case, and that makes me happy! :)

We got our first 3 DVDs yesterday, and immediately sat down to start watching season 2 of Supernatural. We had gotten through season 1 a month or so before we moved, and really liked it. But since we had no channels in Carbondale, we have always been out of the loop on when shows start new seasons or even are on TV. We found out not too long ago that season 3 starts on October 4th, so I was determined to get through all 6 DVDs from season 2 before that.

It ain't gonna happen. :) We got through 7 episodes last night, and have 5 more to watch tonight. Then I'll send them back to Netflix on Saturday, and they will send me the next 3, probably on Tuesday. Jerome starts back in school on Monday, and has a Wednesday night class again. So even if we did, by some stroke of luck, get the DVDs on Tuesday, we still couldn't get through all of the episodes before Thursday!

I think I've decided that I'm okay with this, however. Four years of not having cable, and two years of no TV channels at all, has made me really dislike normal TV viewing. I don't want to have to sit through commercials, and wait an entire week for a new episode! Give me my TV uninterrupted, and at the pace I want it (which means multiple episodes in one sitting)!

So I'm probably better off just watching every TV show I like on DVD. This does necessitate me avoiding all of the spoilers on the interwebz like crazy, but I can just pretend that I'm still not interested in these shows, like I did when I didn't have TV... right? :)

Oh, dammit. Then I went and looked at IMDB, and the first thing I see is a teaser for a new TV show called "Moonlight," and the main character is a vampire. ARGH!

Anyway, I can't find the quote I was going to use for End of the Work Week Wisdom. Check back later to see if I've tracked it down. :)

You need TiVo to watch TV. It will change your life. Seriously.

It's on my list of "someday" purchases. :)
