Where I've Been

Since receiving my Roku unit for my birthday, I've been sitting in front of the damn television in the living room watching streaming downloads from Netflix. I'm addicted. It's bad. Really bad. For my writing that is. But it's good to watch all my old favorites.

Dave and I have placed in our instant queue all the movies and series we enjoyed as kids and have been living on a steady diet of those sci-fi and fantasy series we loved as adults.

Who here remembers Kolchak: The Night Stalker? OMG!! When I found the complete series on the sci-fi section I almost had a complete melt down. I watched that show faithfully every week as a kid. It scared the beejezzus out of me at the time, but now as I watch it as an adult I see the quirky campiness of it and love it for an entirely different reason.

The first series I watched from pilot to last available season on was Eureka! For some reason, I didn't catch this series when it first started and only picked it up in the middle of the third season. So, having the Roku to watch it from the very beginning in marathon sessions was amazing. Love that show, though I have to say for a town full of geniuses they have an awful affinity for creating end-of-the-world catastrophes.

Now, Dave and I have moved on to Farscape and Hercules: The Legendary Jouneys. So much fun, I can't even begin to tell you how much I've enjoying this.

The only problem I can see is that not all of their titles are immediately available for streaming, though if you look up a movie or series in their search engine, if it's not there it will show up in a day or two as a "suggestions for.." section.

So, if you don't see a great deal of new books from me in the near future, that's why. Blame my love for seeing all these awesome shows over again. As I'm having a hard time keeping them in background only.
