I guess it doesn't matter anyway, seeing as Obama and the people in his administration probably will never be employed in the US government again. I just hope they don't take a shit in the sink on the way out.
Fucking hell. Go to Hulu or wait for it to come out on dvd. Stop being a spoiled little brat.

Fucking Hulu. So he can watch his Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares or Family Guy.

I don't pay for TV programming, it's rolled into my bill. If I could cut it out, I would because I haven't watched TV in over a year. It just doesn't matter to me. It's not like I have to fight it, I'm just not interested. And anything good, I usually buy on DVD, like Breaking Bad.

Really, though, Netflix has completely replaced television, especially after I got my iPad. That shit's running near constantly.

I just watched all of CSI from my browser because I felt like it. I didn't have to download anything, didn't have to sit through commercials. And then I went to watch Air Force One.

For $9 they send you whatever you order. Hell I think you can drop it down to $7 and you just dont get the streaming shit.

What I find hilarious is that if you live in within 50 miles of any city, you can get a shitload of channels on an antenna now. Everybody buys these $2000 TVs and has no idea what the best possible picture actually looks like. I built a coat hanger antenna and I get 70 channels in NYC and the good ones are in the highest possible bit rate which isn't possible on cable or fiber or your stupid "you tube".

I think it might be eighteen for the three. But it's rather inconsequential, considering I don't pay for TV, nor really watch it. Between the three rentals and the instant view, I've yet to be disappointed.

Wow, you guys jump to conclusions. I don't watch TV because there is nothing worth watching currently. They canceled Heroes when it went to shit and 24 went to shit years ago. I've heard that Battlestar Galactica is good, but it's on like the 5th season so fuck that. I've had Netflix for months (which is awesome) and it fulfills all my TV watching needs.

I never understand people's views on downloading shit you can already see or hear for free. Who is it hurting again? I never buy shit I see or hear in commercials, so it's not like I am a potential customer.

Evil Robot, you're pretty lucky. I had that free, shitty digital antenna service in Tampa and I was lucky if I could pick up PBS because the signals were so weak.

Well you might not understand it, but that's how shows like Heroes and 24 make money to go another season. You just don't want to look any further than your comfort zone. You are what the world calls an "Ugly American".

I do, but I can't get rid of it. I think of it like a tax.

Uh Tadao, I have no idea what you're talking about. If I don't want to watch seven minutes of commercials in between every five to ten minutes of show that makes me "an ugly American"? I'm a first generation American, who pays taxes, buys products, and works for a living. I guess I'm a bad person for bypassing other people's arbitrary barriers. Please refrain from making judgments about me, because you have no have no actual knowledge about me. :P

I don't know if it's kosher to post two consecutive lols.

I can't get some of shows from the UK that I watch, so I definitely do. And the ones that do come out on DVD are in a different region code.

So yeh, I download them. The Thick of It and Top Gear.
