It's not so I can watch them over and over again.
It's not so I can vid with them.
It's not because I hate watching commercials.
It's not because I don't want to pay for specialty channels.
It's not because I suck at remembering when shows are on, or being home at the right time.
No, it's because you can't watch TV in peace in my house. First of all, I'm damn lucky if I can get some time in front of the TV, my mom knows how to find Law and Order 24 hours a day. I'm not even joking. Then, if I *do* manage to get a chance to actually watch TV, I have to put up with everyone else in the house talking while I watch. Walking through the room, having entire conversations, and sometimes even arguments while my show is on. Plus, I don't have the best hearing, especially if there is background noise (and I'm sick right now, and my ears are blocked so it's even worse), so I have to turn it way up to be able to understand what they're saying, and then the commercials come on, blaring at twice the volume.
That is why I download all the shows I like, and watch them on my computer. I just finished trying to watch New Amsterdam, and I'm pretty sure it was a good episode, but I really can't be sure, because I missed most of it. :(
God, I want to get my own place. Anyone in Ottawa looking for a room mate?
