TV - Its the Wave of the Future!

Recently I gave up cable.  It just got harder and harder to justify spending over $100 for programming in a variety of languages, none of which is probably seen by it's intended audience.  TV was always a distraction, a white noise for reading, playing games, cooking, or any number of things people do when they aren't getting laid or sleeping.  And it's one of those things that you look at and go, "I wish my life was like that", while beached on the couch, rotting.

That being said, I fucking love the shit out of TV.  It's so much FUN to watch, to find new shows to engage and get wrapped up in.  Sure, my parents were like yours and told me it'd rot my brain, but I blame that on being en utero during the '70's more than watching Dr. Who one too many times.  TV can't rot your brain, it feels too good to do any real harm.  Anyway, being  the unemployed, self-loathing, lazy person I am, I sift through Netflix for shows that I never had the time to watch before, on account of my being gainfully employed. I think Netflix has saved cable TV.  I'm watching shit I would have never been able to catch normally, or that I just would frankly be too above watching on a weekly basis. I am a very busy person, after all. 

So huzzah for Netflix!
