All the shows I actually care about can be found in better resolution and with no commercial interruption through Torrents


We only have torrents of the shows because they air on TV. It's a vicious cycle, really.


Meh, let someone else foot the cable bill. Paying $180 a month for so much dead air space is rather insulting actually. If I wanted to know how I could have a full head of hair or whatever, then I would check the internet anyway.

Eventually, all of this will be internet based anyway. But this way, I don't have to miss my shows due to RL issues, and I can watch them when I want and pause, or go back and watch it again.

Right now, I have Cable, a TiVO, and the Internet. Well, technically, Haven has all that stuff, and I just mooch anyway Razz But all of that adds up. And I can do all of that through Torrents for free, or just go to the Major Network Sites and watch them there with a 1/10 of the commercial crap. Yeah, I'm a leech, I know.

I wish NBC.com had full length episodes of scrubs.

I agree with that. Greatest. Show. Evar!

Also, just on the Scrubs kick, they're only doing a 18 show season for #7 and it doesn't start until freaking Oct. I am saddened.

We have Dish. I'm not sure I could do without it.

I did it for a few reasons:

My parents were right, tv rots your brain.

I hated the idea of giving a company as poorly run as Charter my money every month.

It indirectly helps to takes money away from MSM.
