Ten Wildebeests in a Teacup

Interesting That...

Four years ago or so I had given up on TV, and now my longest recent post is all about TV, with four different show titles peppered throughout. (I couldn't help it, this one episode of Wonderfalls is just a great big mishmashed synchronicity of fandoms.)

I had moved to the edge of the Twin Cities, hooked up my TV to its antenna and realized I had moved beyond the signal as far as rabbit ears were concerned. So I shrugged, pushed the TV into the back of my closet, and feasted on Mr Fabby's large (not as massive as these days) DVD collection.

Then one of his friends loaned him Season two of the Sopranos and I got hooked, watching the whole thing. One great big story arc show, no commercials, no waiting for the next ep, just a massive 18-hour movie of sorts. I went out to the new SuperTarget in Chaska and... WTF!?! they want how much for a season of the Sopranos? Screw that.

But wait, here's a slimmer box set that is much cheaper. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Hmm. The movie wasn't great but it was worth a laugh. I get all these minutes of content for one low price... What the heck, I'll buy it.

And now here I am in all my Browncoat/Blackcoat/VM fan glory, devouring TV as fast as they can encode it to DVD. I even wait the long weeks between Mars eps.

But I do watch it on TiVo and FF the ads...
