I'm so glad I re-joined Netflix this week. What will YOU watch on TV?

Thank God for satellite TV and Netflix. I remember when the JFK story was all that could be seen for days and days....

Oddly enough, NetFlix mysteriously sent me an extra disc just yesterday. There’s even a “why do I have an extra disc?” note on my queue, but it doesn’t mention Kennedy.

I enjoyed Netflix for a few months, then found I had seen all the movies I wanted to so I stopped.

Just rejoined the other day so that I can watch some of the great British shows..."Prime Suspect", "Forsyte Saga", "Midsomer Murders", "Inspector Morse"...there are even a few cable dramas that are worth watching.

No kidding, if you can’t think of something better to do than watch the TV then you shouldn’t complain.

Haven’t seen “Office Space” or “Signs” in a while. This will be a good week to haul out some old movies. God knows I cannot endure one minute of Kennedy coverage.

LOL...I’m disappointed that I can’t get closed caption on the “instant view” shows...even with hearing aids, I miss the captioning.

What! You don't want to hear the boring stories while they drone on continuously about St. Ted of The Chappaquiddick and the endless band of Kennedys?

Holey Moses.

We just got through the stomach churning 24/7 praise-a-thons for Michael Jackson.

Now we have to endure another media freak show for Fat Teddy.

I’m gonna shoot my TV. Watch me. It’s gonna happen.

I had a "THUD" moment over Damien Lewis in the remake...he was in some network show for a while, but it didn't take off.

Whatever Nancy demands, citizens of America (and non-citizens) are supposed to bend over, genuflect and make sure she gets (sarcasm). Methinks she has another think coming! Perhaps proclaiming the anniversary of Chappaquidick "his day" would suffice.

You are correct, the media will undoubtedly go on a non-stop 24/7 binge about him. Agreed Netflix instead is preferable.

Kennedy health reform dream will be real this year - Pelosi

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed Wednesday to push through embattled health reform legislation this year following the death of Senator Ted Kennedy, who called the effort "the cause of my life".

Ask me some day about my two favorite closed captioning errors.

I don’t waste my valuable time on teevee.

(I waste it on other things instead.)

But tell ya what, the upcoming twentyfour by seven beatification of St. Teddy the Aqueous just clinches the deal for me.

Wish I could get jack benny but will watch Andy Griffith, Beverly Hillbillies, Hallmark, possibly TBN if there’s something worthwhile - I’ll even watch for the 100th time “Little House On The Prairie” - but, I won’t watch life of TK highlights, commentary, weepy leftists or anything of that nature.

Plenty to watch...

Since there’s not much important going on on TV...

I just bought the complete set of Battlestar Galactica DVDs. I watched a few of the last episodes on SciFi and was so impressed I stopped watching and decided to watch the whole thing on DVD. So far I have watched the miniseries pilot and first episode. All I can say is DAMN! This show was good. I was going to watch a couple of episodes every sunday with the wife who also had never seen it before. Now since it is going to be TED TV 24/7, I’ll watch this instead. I can’t believe I did not watch Battlestar Galactica when it was on.

In the mid 1960’s my Dad, who at the time was a conservative Democrat, had a record album that contained JFKs greatest speeches. I wonder what I could get for that on EBAY today?

We set aside Friday night for family movie night, and time our Netflix deliveries just so.

For my son who’s seven we start with a Disney classic, such as Charlie the Lonesome Cougar, The Million Dollar Duck, the Love Bug, The Ugly Dachshund, That Darn Cat, etc

Then we send him off to bed and watch a good action movie.

Thats about all the TV we watch, other than the classics on TCM.

NETFLIX RECOMENDATION (My God this movie is good)

Actually i was babysitting my 4 year old nephew today and introduced him to the old Speed Racer cartoons on Hulu.

I scored almost 3 hours of peace and quiete with that one.
Turns out he really likes it.

work on the many projects in the shop.
I have two motorcycles to paint.
I have two more that desperatly need riding.
A list as long as my arm of stuff that needs fixin.

Let’s see....
play with the kids
play with the dogs
fire up the grill
read a book (yeah right)
cut the grass
cut my mother’s grass

cut the grass? Oh Lord, I just opened a whole nother can of worms with things that I can do outside the house.

Hmmm.......
go to a ballgame
ride to the local bar for chicken wings and cold beer
go down to the fishing hole

Oh man I could go on and on about things that I need to do and even more of things I want to do, but they surely don’t involve being hypnotized in front of a TV set.

Dumped Cable a year ago, and haven’t missed it.

Just got done watching Legend of the Seeker (the whole 1st season)

The Cable Company can pound sand as far as I’m concerned. When they figure out how to do an a la carte service, they can let me know.

I don’t need 20 channels of ESPN.

Give me a package of 10 channels I watch, for an affordable price, and then we’ll talk.

Til then, Netflix Instant View (That Roku box I bought was the best 99 bucks I’ve spent.
