I’m Back, Nerds!

13 Feb

So after completing all of my PhD applications and starting my new position (which is awesome!), I’ve finally found some time to write another post. It’s been too long, Internet. Something else that has taken up my time is the ancient art of watching reruns. For years, syndication has enriched the lives of people who watch tv shows and given a break to the writers who need a vacation. Comedy Central has started airing 30 Rock from the beginning and I was so eager to hop on that train into Liz-Lemon-y-bliss. I want to be Liz Lemon when I grow up, with less of a cat-lady feel.

Recently, my cable bill went up due to the cable company being greedy jerks (blerg.), so I cancelled my cable package and just kept my internet. Instead of watching my tv – which just sits awkwardly in the middle of my living room now – I have both Netflix and Hulu Plus. Both are $8/month and I can watch whatever I want, whenever I want, as long as I have internet (and they both have Android apps!). Netflix is my new best friend because it has 5 – *5!!!!* seasons of 30 Rock that I have been watching religiously.

I think the moral of this story is:

  1. Cable is dumb – online tv is the way of the future
  2. Who doesn’t want to be Liz Lemon? – I dare you to say otherwise 🙂
