"With satellite television you can go anywhere..."

One of the things about moving in with your parents for a while is that you get to enjoy little luxuries that you'd forgotten about. Like TV. We haven't had broadcast telly for years. (Funny thing: TV, yes, DVD player, yes, Xbox, yes, aerial... no. Which means no TV License - apparently what they look for is a 'system capable of receiving broadcast signals', which you need an aerial for. Sweet.)

We never actually missed it. When the rugby was on I would go and visit a friend, but otherwise just lots of DVDs.

But now my parents have satellite. '57 channels...' my backside. Hundreds of the things, and hardly anything worth spending your time on.

Except SG-1. With no TV I'd not discovered it, but now I'm hooked. I remember loving the film when it was out ('94, I think?), but this is better, actually doing something worthwhile with the universe. Quite thoughtful questions about faith and its outworkings, as well.

There, you like that rationalization, don't you?

:-)

Good TV. Shame I only found it ten years in, but hey, that's ten years of DVDs to find before I get stuck in the release-date waiting cycle. W00t.

…we will be expecting witty and informative writing everyday for a month…

Heh. Now there's a laugh.
