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.
Man, didn’t think about that. Glad I don’t have time for TV anymore.
Classic tv shows like Leave it to Beaver, Bewitched, Jack Benny, etc. Movies such as Marx Brothers, WC Fields, Jerry Lewis.
Love that watch instant feature...
Fortunately the Food Network,NFL and college season, and AMC all have watchable stuff
Hi, my name’s perplyone, and I’m a netflix addict.
reruns of Married with Children
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.
I highly recommend IT crowd on Netflix and Goodbye Lenin
also. Sophie Scholl is excellent.
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.
Glenn Beck and BONES!
I LOVE BONES!
Awesome show....got a crush on Hodgens BIG TIME! That curly hair and those EYES!
Beck looks like Bart Simpson all growed up...
I loved Forsyte Saga the original BBC
LOL...I’m disappointed that I can’t get closed caption on the “instant view” shows...even with hearing aids, I miss the captioning.
Dog Whisperer, Ice Road Truckers, and Nascar.
It’s all good.
Hulu and Fancast
I doubt HGTV or DIY will mention the Tedster.
If anyone is looking for Netflix recommendations, I recently rented a documentary called “Sister Helen”....great flick.
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.
You are correct, the media will undoubtedly go on a non-stop 24/7 binge about him. Agreed Netflix instead is preferable.
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".
I like the interplay with the cast, but could do without the gross stuff.
This week is a great time for end-of-summer cleaning. I have a sudden desire to scrub all of our toilets :)
Tonight its “Treasure of the Sierra Madre.”
I own most of the Seinfeld episodes, they are all good to watch over and over.
TV? I don’t have to watch no stinkin TV.
I hear you there.
I need to send Netflix another e-mail requesting this.
Ask me some day about my two favorite closed captioning errors.
Amen, bro/sis...but I’m sure we’ll be kept up-to-date while visiting this site...not bitching, just know it’ll happen...
Don’t forget HGTV!!!!!!! Keeps you busy! :)
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.
I’ll be listening to talk radio and reading FR. I want no part of the upcoming marathon.
Gee, Sordo...what are your “two favorite closed captioning errors?”
I prefer listening to radio and surfing the internet. :)
Classic tv shows like Leave it to Beaver, Bewitched, Jack Benny
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.
Youtube has movies too...
And also old TV shows...
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.
I don’t waste my time or brain cells with Netflix or television.
The one way back that had the Night to Remember guy as Jolyan ???
What was his name...
I think I remember watching that when it first came out...
My husband and I are enjoying watch the TV show (from the 70s/80) called Connections and The Day the Universe Changed.
When I bother to watch TV thats not a Sports program anymore i’m usually watching online Hulu and Netflix Through my PS3.
Thank god for it!
I’m thinking of getting rid of cable.
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)
Sophie ScholL: The Final Days
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 around the house.
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.
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.
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.
Yes, black and white
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.
Original was excellent, I just never made it thru the book unfortunately.
All of those classic BBCs are great.
