As I've mentioned before, about a year ago I gave up my cable t.v. and moved to watching most, if not all, of my t.v. online. (That sounds odd, doesn't it? T.V. Online. lol) Most of my shows are available on Hulu; the ones that aren't are usually available on their network's website.
In most ways, this has been a great thing - it's much less expensive than a cable subscription and frees me to be able to watch my shows at my leisure.
What I hadn't realized until recently was that it also significantly changed what I'm viewing - and for the better. I used to be obsessed with the celeb-reality crap that is VH1. Now I can't tell you the last time I saw an episode of Rock of Love or something of that ilk.
I guess that really shows how meaningless those shows are, if I can go a whole year without watching before realizng that I should be missing them...
