we started watching things on netflix. we watched six feet under and loved it. it was a little easier with netflix to restrict ourselves. we had to wait for the next disc to arrive, and often we would be slow to remember to mail the previously watched one back.
the rise in access to tv shows online has kind of defeated the purpose of us not having an actual tv. we watch things on netflix, hulu, and amazon now. oops :) and it's even easier to just keep watching sometimes with that nifty "next" button.
anyways the shows we have watched or are watching are:
the x files
law and order
you can see, again, that we watch a variety. there are a couple that i watch when i just need a little "me time" when arden is napping. i've recently liked watching america's got talent. it's escpecially nice to just skip over the bad acts and all the snarky judge stuff :) i've also like modern family.
anyways, i realize we need to reevaluate the amount of tv we watch again. but it's hard to do. and there are so many excuse you can create that keep you on the couch :) i almost feel we need to take drastic measures to jump start an adjustment. then we can self-regulate from there. i've wondered if there was a program you could put on your computer to make it automatically shut off at a certain time, even if you're using it.
so, again, i ask what you guys like? how do you moderate how much tv you watch, or do you just soak up the good stuff :) i really do like to hear back from whomever is reading this... really, truly. now i'm off to watch my name is earl!
