New Pastime

I don't have cable. I don't have an antenna. I haven't bought the converter box with those vouchers that are still sitting in my husband's wallet. So when a new show starts, it takes us a while to discover it. No TV, no newspaper, no entertainment guide, so, no clue. Yep, that's me, clueless.

I walked into the house today and my husband says,"I got something for you." He opens up a file, makes it bigger than a 3x5 card so I can see, and gestures for me to watch. So I watch. Not too long after the beginning, which is of a nice sit down dinner party, books all over the place, I see Nathan Fillion. I'm hooked.

Yeah, I have been a big fan of the Firefly series, and the movie that came out of it, Serenity. When it ended, as soon as the dvd version was available, we had it. Same with the movie. When Summer Glau started in the Sarah Conner Chronicles, we watched that. When we found Adam Baldwin in Chuck, we started watching that. We were already big fans of the Stargate shows, so finding Morena Baccarin and Jewel Staite playing in them was another treat. But Nathan, aside from that Dr. Horrible stint(which, by the way, was awesome!), hasn't been doing much, at least that I knew about. Remember, I'm clueless. :)

I'm so excited! One more thing to keep me from World of Warcraft. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly suggest you look for Castle, whether you watch your shows on TV, or on the internet. So far it looks great!

I have DirecTV, but sometimes it's just easier to watch TV online. So, if I miss a show, or didn't tape it because hubby is the TiVO overlord, or whatever, I just log onto the network website and watch full episodes. I didn't have cable or anything for a while and I watched every episode of a show I like for a whole season online. It's quite convenient.

I think so too. And, since the remote control was bind on equip, I pretty much get to watch what is on this system right here :P

Nathan Fillion did one recently called Drive, I think. I was watching it on iTunes for awhile, but got out of the TV watching. It was very good, though. Ya might look it up. Always been a huge fan of Firefly and was terribly sad when it ended. :(

thanks for pointing this one out! I don't watch much TV either (which is ironic since I work for "a major satalite broadcast company" lol), but always looking for the really good shows. Anything with Fillion in it is gonna be good. He'sa great leading man.

Thanks for that, Friday. I need to expand my horizons. I must have been gaming a bit much, because hubby has been finding all sorts of other things for me to do!
