    As much as I like the shows I watch, when the season is over and it's time for the summer reruns, I always feel a sense of relief. "AAAAH, I can do things in the evening without worrying about missing my TV shows, or worrying about having 10 hours of taped stuff that I need to catch up with before next week... "[​IMG]
    There are a few shows this summer that I'll watch ("The Mole" and "Sex and the city"), but otherwise most of the nights are completely TV-free. And what a relief it is! [​IMG]

    Well, there's still "Farscape".

    And baseball. The Sox are on every night, and you don't want to miss something extraordinary...

    You mean time to catch up on that stack of DVDs, like those TV season box sets? [​IMG]

    Jeremiah is the only I'll watch all summer.
    It is a nice break, and it's great that the time of year for no TV is during the best weather.

    It's been even worse for me this year because I've been out so many evenings. Now that most of the new plays have opened and the TV season is over, I can finally catch up on the DVD backlog.

    Summer?? So far, the best Cleveland has come up with is a mild winter (it snowed again last week...aieee!). I suspect we will get Spring like weather this July and then it will quickly degenerate into an early fall in August. Ugh. What is hip about having the ol' PVR is I already am not a slave to times when shows air. Also, having only a couple shows to air makes for a relatively nice balance of shows, real life, child and (if absolutely necessary) sleep. Ahh...I feel a chill coming on. Have to go turn the heat up.


    Ciao,

    Phil

    I'm glad that TV season is effectively over until August, although I admit I could do with another Survivor during the summer. Considering how many movies I see (I'm at something like 115 or so for the year, and these are all in theaters and don't count repeated viewings), I hardly keep up with what's on anyway, paring things down mainly to Sunday night and a couple core shows. And the DVD backlog really needs to be managed now.
    If Fox is listening, they can put that 24 box set out now. I watched the first few episodes, fell behind, and didn't even bother attempting to watch the rest of it. (I know, I'm part of the problem. [​IMG] )

    I'm counting minutes until Buffy and Angel start up again

    I wish there were more summer series that weren't crappy reality shows.

    I've had to box up the still-in-shrink-wrap stack of DVD's. The pile was becoming dangerous.
    But...there will be the emotional let-down when I dont have new shows on Tuesday & Thursday to look forward to.[​IMG]

    It's not over for me yet. I had business travel earlier this month, and I've been working on a play during the evenings the past 2 weeks, so I fell way behind. I've still got 10-12 hours of stuff queued up on the TiVos.

    You can always tape the shows so you're not a slave to the boob tube. Or, watch them in re-runs, or..... read a good book, have a nice meal in a restuarant or talk to your significant other. Radical ideas I know. [​IMG]
