Online streaming does make cable seem inefficent, but some shows are harder to find online than others. Also, watching a show on TV lets you see it before it gets leaked online or put on the company's website.
Yes PAM AM is cancelled, ABC hasn't announced it yet, but all actors have moved onto other projects, the timeslot is occupado, and ABC is sitting pretty and doesn't need a low rated drama on the schedule (like NBC who will literally air anything ).
I really liked PAN AM, and I found it a good match for DH. But I like GCB too. I don't know which show is a better fit, but I can tell you which show ABC is backing right now.
Totally understandable, DVDs are easy to come by. Do you go to the library to test out new titles, or do you buy them at the stores. I go to the library because most stores don't give credit or cash back on DVDs when you try to return them (they'll just give you the same product again if it is defective ).
So what is your 'biggest regret' or a show that you bought and would return if you could?
For me, THE OUTER LIMITS. It's an old sci-fi show. I read nothing but great reviews and found it was awful once I watched it. I was in a kitchen/bath store yesterday and did the unthinkable--I bought the first season of LOIS AND CLARK thanks to our previous discussion. It was $9.99. How could I resist?
I saw MY SO-CALLED LIFE on sale at Future Shop (half price). I've read James from London's reviews, which are good, so I'm thinking about going back and buying it.
My So Called Life is amazing, Claire Danes at her best. A wonderful portrayl of teen agnst (true quality not like One Tree Hill or 90210). It's so realistic in its depiction of American girl Angela Chase and her daily battles in home and school. It was very ahead of its time and not well placed on the ABC schedule (the network didn't know what to do with the show). A must see.
