Life without cable. I gotta be honest, I never thought I would see the day. It’s not the $11.35 that gets me, really. It’s the $55 installation fee. Seriously, five months of service for some guy in a Comcast hat to flip a switch? Eep. No thanks.
To be honest, I don’t miss it as much as you might think. “Thank God for internet” is all I have to say. I can pretty much catch any sporting event I want (way to be, Bulls) and Hulu carries all the shows I want. Really, though, it’s the re-runs I miss the most. Random Family Guy marathons are pretty much a thing of the past, and I know my girlfriend wishes for the days when Law and Order was a dinnertime tradition.
I will say that, because of this lack of television, Heather and I have GREATLY expanded our movie viewing, which brings me to the point of this blog. I’ll be reviewing movies in the most simple way possible.
And before you even dream of asking, I am not someone who considers myself a movie critic, which is sorta the point. I haven’t seen any obscure Indie film ever made, and I didn’t watch the Sundance channel even when I DID have television. Why? Because it’s lame.
Oh, and while we’re at it, if you have any suggestions for Heather and I as far as movies we simply HAVE to watch, please let me know.
Until next time.
