Go ahead – say THAT title 10 times fast – – then go ahead and untie your tongue while you’re at it! Serious Serial Series Syndrome™ – I have it.
I never, ever have time to get into a television series while it’s still running. Really – how do people keep up with it? To plunk my butt down in front of the television every Thursday at 7pm is way too much of a committment for me, and I do have committment issues, you know. Don’t let my newlywed status confuse you – – I’m a true phobe.
But – Netflix.comchanged my life! It has given me what I’ve been missing all these years (and Dave has also informed me that DVR is MUST for people like me – I’m currently in the process of talking Chris into it.) I have blogged about this before – but since I am currently in the midst of catching up on some of my favorites like 24, The Pretender, Prison Break, The Shield, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and The Unit – I figured I’d give another plug to Netflix.com .. my friend, my mail-order DVD supplier — without which I would be… well, not watching my favorite television series.
I’m still patiently awaiting last season of Alias to come out on DVD so I can feed that need. It is weird the way they release these things, though – for instance, I’ve finally gotten ahold of the final season of The Pretender – and that season ended in what…. 1999?
What really super torked me off, though was the first season of Surface – Now THAT was a great show that didn’t make it past the first season, which of course I didn’t realize until after I had watched the entire first season, only to realize that NBC cancelled it. For anyone else who had the good fortune to see that first season – I just have this to say:
Sick with Serious Serial Series Syndrome™
