TV Or Not TV

The new TV season has started. That's it. That's what my life has become. I mark the passage of time by TV seasons.

Yet another reason why Netflix is fucking up my world. There are no seasons. No season-ending cliffhangers, no cancellations. Cancellation happens in the real world which is usually why NF gets new shows I can start watching. Occasionally they'll slip in a series that's still running on a network but really, how many times can I watch Desperate Housewives? A lot but I'm only there for the breasts.

I'm on season 4 of CSI:NY. I started with season 1 yesterday. What? So what do you do with your time off? Go sell snarky somewhere else buddy; this wallet's closed.  What choice did I have after I finished watching CSI:Miami? I should go watch one of their documentaries? At this age you expect me to try to learn stuff?

Listen I walked away with my diploma last century and I haven't looked back since. I'm smart enough thanks.

Besides new knowledge would only cause me to question what I already know and you know I hate that. I have a smartphone now and the two of us are brilliant. I could almost be a genius if they'd sent a damn instruction manual with the phone. C'mon Apple get your act together. How do you ever expect to be successful if you keep overlooking the basics? Call me, I've got some pointers for you.

  1. Oh, sure, rub it in that I am the only one left on planet earth who doesn't own a SmartPhone! Well, except Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys. He still uses a flip phone, so I guess I am in good company. :)

  2. Don't feel back, Chelle. I still have a Nokia flip phone circa 2006. And I'm oddly proud of that fact.

  3. I'm thinking about getting Netflix, at least for the free month offer, to watch "Orange Is the New Black." And maybe "Arrested Development." And maybe... Hmmm. Maybe not. ;)

  4. That's right... no apologies! Watch to your heart's content. (I'd say we've earned that privilege!)

  5. NF's a good/bad thing Jayne. It's great to binge watch your favorite shows but it can easily become a huge tome suck.

  6. I've only had mine a month Chelle. I love it!!
