As in - we didn't have it before now. I don't think we've had it since my daughter's been alive. She's almost 12.
They sent us a digital converter box for our tv's and although we have always paid for basic cable only, we got it all!
We used to get up to Channel 22, now we get up to Channel 99.
So let's talk about tv! Can we? For years, I have heard people talking about shows and just smiled and nodded. ha!
Now I can watch those shows! Some I like, some are more bizarre than I imagined! (Like Sister Wives.)
For instance, I finally watched "Extreme Couponing" on TLC today.
I had wanted to see it for a long time after hearing some friends discuss it.
I was annoyed after the first show because they take all the good stuff and buy too much of it!
I had no clue that they show movies during the day on cable. Since we got it, I have seen:
- Leap Year- Bring It On
- Indiana Jones
- Pretty in Pink
- Pretty Woman
Probably more. Not the entire thing of any of them, except Leap Year, which I highly enjoyed.
Their house is incredible too!
I was excited about HGTV but so far, it has bored me!!!
I think I binged on it the first night with some show called "Property Brothers" and "Love It or List It" - something like that. I did like that one.
But after a while, it's the same thing over and over.
Caroline has loved having the Disney channel, of course.
So what am I missing? What do you like on tv? I have no clue if I'm missing some fabulous shows. I think it's all just a big waste of time. I still only care about my prime-time shows which number less than 10 and are all on the major networks. Castle, DWTS, Person of Interest, Mentalist, CSI:. I do like Ringer on the CW but that's it.
Are there any crafty shows? Does scrapbooking even still come on QVC?
What are your favorites? Fill me in!!!
