I work from home, so I haven't had a functional TV in about a decade. With the better TV shows coming out on DVD, I've been catching up a bit - I've got all of Buffy and Firefly covered, and I've seen the first two seasons of the Sopranos, which puts me up to early 2001 or so. With shows now available online, I've now seen all of the new Battlestar Galactica. For the first time since probably the late 80s, I'm up-to-date with a show, and won't be able to find out what happens next until about the same time everybody else does - in September.
Just started watching Lost - there's a season and a half out there of easy-to-resolve-by-looking-it-up-online suspense waiting for me. Between BG and Lost, I've noticed a trend of twitchy paranoia in recent television shows. I can't imagine why.
I enjoy watching a show and reading the write up in Television Without Pity. More expertly-worded snark than I could ever come up with, and I like my snark.
