New Addiction

You know that Bruce Springsteen song ---- 57 channels and nothin' on......
Well he was spot on.
We pay a lot for these stupid cable channels and usually end up watching and
by watching I mean not watching something really stupid.
I personally have a hate hate relationship with our cable company.
Lets just say I can usually talk to other service companies with a pleasant demeanor.
But when it comes the cable provider my pleasantness goes out the window.
Yes there is a history but too involved to get into .....
So we decided to give Netflix a try.
So far we have watched a couple of movies and all 4 seasons
of The Killing......

If you like dreary, rainy scenery. Grungy, unlikable characters but an edge of your seat story this is the series for you.
I know I know. Not a glowing endorsement but seriously it had us bolted to the couch.
In fact the first story line took up 2 seasons and the last episode had us up until 1 AM.

 We were a bit concerned that season 3 and 4 were going to disappoint us.
It was well worth watching to the end.

So now we are the hunt for another series to watch. We started watching Netflix's production of Marco Polo. So far it is okay and we are willing to give it another episode or two. But if we don't like it there are tons more shows to choose from.

Oh ya and we got Siobhan hooked to. Discovered that for an extra $1.00 we can have another screen so she has been Netflixing too.

Our next project is to see if we can reduce the cable cost by getting rid of some of the channels. Not easy as most of the channels come in packages. So if we want a sports channel we have to have the "Watch Paint Drying Channel" (hahahaha)

Ciao for now


  1. We gave up on TV ,we don't even own one anymore. We watch DVDs on the laptop. I check blog friends' posts to see what they are watching and liking...then get the DVD. Guess what I just added to the list?!

  2. House of Cards is excellent....a wee bit naughty....but sooooo good!
    We watched Homeland as well......so so....but not bad!
    Happy viewing!
    Linda :o)

    1. Thanks for the suggestions Linda. Certainly will check them out..

  3. Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting me at Simplify! I had to laugh reading your post about the cable company! I so agree with you. We pay a fortune!!! And all of those movie channels are showing old movies, and ones that weren't even that well received in the theaters in the first place! Ugh!!!
    I had a nice visit here. Love your blog name!!!
