Generic Title

I really love to watch television. But you probably already guessed that. And I love the I the Internet, again a no-brainer.

So while on the internet I come across a lot of information for shows. It’s not hard to avoid stuff, but not easy.

I want to show this old oatmeal comic.

This is exactly what happens through my mind when I want to watch stuff like Game of Thrones or Dexter. I go through this mental war with myself. I want to make sure that the crew and creators of these great shows get their due…and I know a lot of this stuff is on DVD….but………..I’m poor and can’t justify a DVD purchase.

But I don’t pirate anything. I never thought of doing that. I never really wanted to because I’m a good girl.

But now I really want to, especially with American Gods coming to HBO soon. I LOVE this book to pieces, and I don’t want to miss a moment of this show……so pirating if would be the best answer, right?

But I do want to give money and views to Neil Gaiman. I want to support this show in a positive way.

For Neil Gaiman is God.

Back in the day my family used to have the HBO’s and Showtime and all that but we got rid of them when we realized something….there’s a lot of crappy movies on these channels. And we were wasting our money on stuff we didn’t watch.

They didn’t start doing shows that I actually gave a shit about until Showtime premiered Dexter. I was intrigued by the concept of the show and thought the lead was cute.

So cute!

But I never pirated it. Mostly because I was young and didn’t know that pirating existed. And when I did find out about it, well I knew it was illegal and I didn’t want to try it.

I didn’t watch Dexter until CBS edited the first season to air on Sundays during the writers strike.

I got seasons 1 and 2 on sale for $6 each at a SALVATION ARMY STORE that’s how cheap I am!!!

Now here’s something, why can’t cable companies ala carte premium channels? If you want Showtime or HBO for an extra $2 a channel a month? Cause these package deals are fucking stupid. I also want the Funimation channel but I would have to subscribe to a package that also included some stupid fishing channel. And with the HBO and Showtime packages you also get the Latin channels.  And I don’t know a damn thig about Spanish. My high school teacher gave up on my class and just showed us movies the whole damn time.

What the fuck would I want with HBO Latin? These premium channels are a waste of money and the only good times are prime time Sunday, unless you see a good movie on.

And again, I don’t want to pirate things cause I really want to support good quality work I television, especially since there’s so much crap on TV.

If I can’t get my ala carte channels, then why not shorten iTunes releases?

I know I’m not alone in this dilemma, which is why I predict that within 5-10 years those channels will have to re-think how they do business.

At least I hope….
