TV On My Terms

I couple of months ago I decided to no longer play the game of watching TV only when strange people in suits who I'd never met "decided" I could. Armed with a combination of my TiVo, the Internet and a region-free DVD player, I swore to never watch live TV again.

Admittedly, this wasn't too much of a stretch considering how little TV I watch now days, but I was angry and lashing out (mostly at Channel Nine).

So anyway, here's some of the stuff I've been watching lately.

Rome - the straw that broke the camel's back. After waiting 12 months for Channel Nine to finally get around to showing this series, I was all ready to set aside an hour of my week. It was to be my first (and probably only) "regular viewing" of the year. But after the first week, They decided that this excellent series was actually responsible for their ratings troubles throughout the year, and canceled it.
Since the DVDs haven't been released in Australia, my lovely wife surprised me by ordering them from Amazon. And as further proof of how totally wonderful she is (as if I needed it!), she even agreed to watch the series with me, and put up with me pointing out all the little facts I know.

Battlestar Galactica - I wasn't instantly grabbed by the mini-series a few years ago, and so never really got into the show. Until the TiVo started recording episodes about halfway through the second season. Despite missing a bit chunk of the story, I got hooked. Then Channel 10 decided that it would use that timeslot for all the episodes of Joker Poker they had to do something with. But guess what, the DVDs of the first two seasons are pretty cheap, and now I don't even have to worry about fast forwarding the ads.

Heroes - Channel Seven has the rights to this show, but I'm not even going to bother. I'd been hearing rumours of this show online for a little while, and finally figured I should find out a bit more. It's basically "X-Men but not" - a bunch of people who are the "next stage of evolution" running around with super powers. Lots of fun. The episodes are available online, and I've got no problems watching TV on my PC.
