What Happens When You Don't Have TV
Danny and I don't have television service. We own 2 tv's, but no service. When we moved into our house, we decided to cut out cable in favor of saving money, reading more, and spending more time together. Everything went pretty well. I admit I missed Food Network and watching Samantha Brown on the Travel Channel. And bringing our dining room chairs up to the computer to watch the Office and 30 Rock did get old sometimes. But really- the savings were worth it. And it still is- but strangely now, I think we're watching more tv than ever. Let me explain:
A little over a month ago, a coworker lent us the 1st and 2nd season of Heroes. We were getting kind of tired of our old dvds and needed something new to watch. After the first episode had played, we were instantly hooked. Embarrassing as it is, we watched the entire season in 2 days. We left the house only for food. We stayed in the same clothes. We were a mess... but having so much fun together.
Since season 3 has still yet to come out, we thought we'd give one more show a shot to fill in the downtime. And again- we're addicted, only this time it's Lost. We're taking this one slower- no 2 day marathons here- but we're still enjoying it so much. And the fact that we have many more seasons of this one to catch up on- just makes it even better.
Any other shows we should know about for the future?
