Starting a new blog, it's important to come out with some awesome post right off the bat...but I got nothin'. Here lately the most exciting part of my week is Castle. How did I miss that for the first two seasons? I mean I seriously love this show. A couple of weeks ago they tortured me with a two-part episode and I nearly went into convulsions when I realized I had to wait a whole seven days for the conclusion. It wasn't even on YouTube or Hulu! What is that about? Of course, there was a DVR full of House there to console me thanks to an all-day viewer's choice marathon. (By the way, has anyone out there ever been one of the "viewers" choosing? No one's ever asked me which episode I'd like to see. I'm just sayin'...) Come to think of it...that DVR owns me. How did I ever live without it? I mean, TV with commercials!? Nobody makes Baby watch commercials. The great thing about Castle is that it doesn't lose it's appeal during the seven days' wait. Not so with our dearly departed 24. I finally caught the fever in season 7, but the Hubby and I rented seasons 1-6 and watched them feverishly throughout. There was never a dull moment. While we waited for the next season 7 episode, we caught up via DVD. Not a day passed without a little Jack Bauer. We waited breathlessly for season 8, hoping beyond hope that they would renew for a miraculous season 9. But when season 8 came, the seven day wait between episodes built up impossible expectations. Some of the episodes were awesome, but on the weeks when it was just one of those filler episodes...big let down. I do miss the anticipation, though. It made Mondays bearable.
Like I said, the DVR owns me.
