tv,dvd,limewire....

so, i don't watch tv anymore. but, rather, i've taken an extreme liking to downloading television shows and watching them obsessively. needless to say, when people ask me if i watch tv, i still reply with a big fat 'no', cuz technically, i don't... i hate television. i hate commercials, i hate that i have to wait to watch something at a specific time and on a specific channel, all of which i have none of.. channels that is. i think paying for cable is ridiculous, so i download and buy dvd's.

But, i'm not really going to complain about the over priced cable bills, and how much i hate television, rather, i want to praise a few new shows that i have discovered through the wonders of limewire downloads.

ENTOURAGE
: this is the most amazing show. ben and i watched the entire two seasons of this show in less than two weeks. it's only a half hour, and simply jam packed with amazingness. ok, i'm not very good at giving reviews, my comments tend to be vague, but if you haven't gotten into this show yet, i recommend it if not for the plot, but at least for jeremy piven who happens to be brilliant and give an awesome portrayal of the asshole agent, who sorta holds a sweetspot in my heart!!

NEXT,

WEEDS: this show deals with drugs, lots of them. it basically says, everyone smokes pot, and now we are going to show you on televisions that you are not alone out there, everyone else does it too, even rich white folk from the subarbs!!! not only is the topic of the show a fantastic idea for a television show, the cast is amazing. Mary Louise Parker is a remarkable actress, and it's good to see that she is getting the kind of attention she deserves. She plays a subarban housewife with two kids who just lost her husband to a heartattack, and has taken to selling pot to the town. the show discusses how she expands her business and the the difficulties of being a subarban housemom drugdealer. its an awesome show, if you haven't gotten into this, i recommend doing it soon before season 2 starts, which will hopefully be soon, cuz i just finished season 1 and i can't wait much longer for more!!!

oh.. and here's a given:

SOPRANOS!!! i love this show.. and i don't really want to talk about it, cuz you probably love it too!!

ok. i'm done here.. are you happy josh? i wrote something again for your silly blog!!!

Entourage & Sopranos are indeed awesome. And I still don't know how Jeremy Piven didn't win a best actor emmy last year. I have NO idea.

Do you save any money that way? Maybe that is the way we should go. Cable is waaay-overpriced here!

I love Jeremy Piven, but I don't get any premium channels, how do you download that stuff? I know about window treatments, just not downloading programs, go figure.

limewire is AMAZING! it's like kazaa or napster.. but it works really well and you can download music and movies, and basically whatever you want. we got all of six feet under that way. i know its illegal, but, i mean, i still buy dvds and cd's, but this saves a lot of money. i recommend it if you only have cable for hbo or showtime.
AND.. yeah, jeremy piven totally deserves some sort of an award, he's fuckin brilliant!

EX- I can tell you why J.P. didn't win, it has to do with reality and charecter, that is him, playing him! And trust me in real life, way worse.

Abetterjulie- My roommate swears she saves money, but if you have cable internet then you are saving money by getting cable TV as well.

Janestarr- What my sis said is correct, but if you want to do it legally, try the itunes website.

My sis the music stealer - Funny thing happened, Downs went to a black market in Singapore and bought "joshua," The movie I did in Indiana, so I wouldn't get any risiduals from it, on purpose. Then e-mailed me to gloat!
