    Ugh! I am sick in bed and just want something decent to watch....We have 300 cable channels of junk!

    I am stuck watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch....there is no Criminal Minds, Law and Order (any flavor), Bones, The Closer...nothing but junk.

    Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    That's excatly why we don't have satelite anymore. It's a waste of $30/month. Sorry to hear your sick. Hope you're feeling better soon.

    I got a Tivo, and it watches my TV so that I don't have to.

    If I ever end up stuck with watching TV (had the flu for a week back in Sept), then I have a dozen episodes of this or that recorded. I think that's the first TV I've watched that wasn't a sporting event in a couple of years, though.

    I did find a rather amazing high def nature special on Kamchatka that was awesome, though.

    That's why we don't have a Tv or Sat./Cable. Just a big waste of money.

    Same here. The only way to get tv here is satellite and we're just as happy without. The few things we do watch are streamed on the internet, so we still get some. Probably could have more, but quiet and roosters crowing is nice sometimes.
