Game of Couches

There's been no shortage of things to kill my productivity lately. It's nothing short of a conspiracy. I swear, if I did not have the self-control that I demonstrate in steeling myself to write this very post, I'd be doomed spend the rest of my summer on the couch. So much new and old TV magic to behold, care of Netflix and associates.But I'll get around to finishing the site update sooner or later.

I started watching the highly recommended Game of Thrones as of yesterday. I must say, I was not disappointed. While I may be a little late to the party, all of the violence, nudity, and Sean Bean that Game of Thrones has to offer has not been lost on me. Did I mention that there's lots of tits? And that's just speaking for the first two episodes. Yes, sir, this is not the show for the young'ins. But does seem to perfectly hit my demographic's favorite selling points. Okay, so it might not have a lot to appeal to women. But it has lots of horses, too (women like horses, right?)

I've been using Netflix for a while now, and it's been a major consumer of my free time. Unlimited streaming TV shows and movies for as little as $7.99 a month? You can't explain that!

But Netflix has gone further and tempted me with offerings of many of the TV shows that I watched as a kid in the 90's. At first it was just The X-Files. But after seemingly listening in on my thoughts and conversations with my brother, now the X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons that I grew up with are available. They also have Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, too.

Other recently added choices like all of the Star Trek TV shows (except they don't have DS9) are a good bet as well. I already watched through Star Trek: TNG prior to getting Netflix, but I'll probably start up Star Trek: The Original Series.
