I have not had cable television (or anything other than rabbit ears, for that matter) for more than 18 years. My, how technology has changed since then.
I just got DIRECTV installed yesterday (connected to a new HD plasma TV), and I'm simultaneously delighted and overwhelmed by the number of channels available to me; by the intricacies of my DVR recording service; by my ability to pause live television (that's crazy!); and by everything else I'm forgetting to mention because there's so much to be delighted and overwhelmed by.
Since I'm not well-educated in all the programming that's available to me and because I have trouble making decisions, especially when I have so many damn choices, I'm going to need your help to maximize my viewing time.
What shows do you enjoy and think I might enjoy too?
I'd love to hear about what you're watching and why you love it so. Your comments will help me catch up on all that I've been missing, but, really, it will help me become a better person.
I know that entertainment is subjective, so I should give you an idea of what I dig. My tastes actually run the gamut - my DVR is currently set to record 24, Drake & Josh, Elvis Costello's Spectacle, Ghost Hunters, The Jeff Corwin Experience, Kitchen Nightmares, The People's Court, Punk'd, Scariest Places on Earth, South Park, and United States of Tara.
What else, dear readers? There are 24 hours in each day that I have to fill up!
