I Don't Know How I Did It

Beofre Television was on DVD how did I watch? How did I tolerate the waiting week by week only to eventually miss an episode anyway? Putting TV on DVD is genius, genius I tell you.

Case in point: MURDER ONE. Great show. I watched a couple when it was originally on, but missed enough to lose interest. Well, New Years Eve Ruth and I watched all 23 hours of it back to back. The whole first season with only a half hour shower break. THat is the way to watch television. It's a great show and I didn't have the torture of know I might miss one or the pure hell of waiting a week for the next episode.

This week after work I watched over three nights all the episodes of THE JOB with Denis Leary. Again, wonderful viewing with no waiting.

The truly wonderful thing is most of these things can be rented or borrowed from the library. Of course being the freak I am, we own them....

Next up, Night Gallery, Keen Eddie and Rebus.

This has been my big complaint with "Lost". The show is not moving fast enough to justify the week to week wait, as well as the commercials.

We recently got a Tivo, and I highly recommend using it for a season pass, or for watching anything with commercials.

My wife bought me the 3-DVD set of the original "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" series. God, I love that show. What a great Christmas present.

I think you're on to something here, Jon. TV on DVD rocks.

The Job rocked. That show should have been on cable not on ABC. I want to get the whole set. The episode where he's stuck in the john is great.

I just saw that THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR are coming out in disc in July.

Finally. I love that show.
