Nope! Once you start that, where does it end? I'm only half kidding. I'd Tivo all of the Sunday morning talk shows...plus the stuff I might be interested in when DH is watching TV (we have another set if I really want to see something on a different channel). We have east coast and west coast plus local if we happen to be where we get local reception. In the end, I'd spend too many hours watching TV. This keeps my life simple...if it's important to me, make time for it...if it's not that important, do something that is.

Eh, there some truth in that. Being able to sit down and have 400 hours of exactly what you want to watch on tv can have its challenges.

But I like having it all on my timetable and being able to stop and start it to suit interruptions. Thats nice. Plus commercials are a thing of the past.

On the other hand, it makes you slightly socially retarded. People start using lines out of commercials and you have absolutely no idea what they're talking about.

By the time I knew what "Whassssuuuuuup!" meant, it was too late.

Most of my friends watch less TV than I do, so I don't have to worry about them thinking I'm slightly retarded for that reason, but I will watch half-time for the super and pro bowls to see what the ad men come up with. Some are quite amusing.

I enjoyed the first two shows, but something about them seemed to move a little slow. Will continue to watch with the idea the shows will keep getting better. I like the story line.
I wonder how many of these were finished before the writers strike.

Wow, I tuned in again last night and what a treat! Wonder if there will be more and more of the action taking place in the future. I think this might be a real thumbs up...if it just won't get "soapy".

You should be proud of that fact.

I am!

Okay, is it just me or is anyone else wondering why Summer Glau was able to act and speak like a perfectly normal teenage girl in the first episode (to the point of fooling the kid who has dealt with terminators all his life) but after that she's walked and talked like a robot?

I'm hooked. I watch it at Fox's website. Fox does not have any commercials at their website. Some of the other stations have commercials but not many or at least as many as the TV.

We love the fact that we can watch on Fox it if we miss the show. Commercial free is a big bonus.

I keep watching it only to diss it the following day discussing with friends. Worst episode ever.

I have sat. internet and it's just too slow to get continuity of the action. Plus, I try to avoid getting FAP'd, so I don't download a lot. Not complaining too badly because I can get internet no matter where we are, plus I can watch on East Coast or West Coast.

There were so many things referred to in T3 to bridge the time between T2 and T3 that they could evolve all kinds of story lines. I keep hoping for a glimpse of a terminator that looks like Arnie in the "future" scenes...who knows. That model is the one that kills John in the future. And wonder why the teen terminator keeps collecting "stuff" from dead terminators or parts they will be made of. Yeah, I thinks I'm hooked, too.
