^I barely watch television. I could count on one hand the shows that I've watched regularly and really loved. Ever. But Downton Abbey makes it onto the list.

I watch a ton of TV but most shows I don't care if I end up missing. It's mostly just something to have on in the background. I remember back when I had a million things on the air and recording and I told my husband that the only one I really looked forward to was Downton Abbey. I'm a huge fan of period dramas though. I think Mad Men makes it into that category too, actually.

My in-laws are not at all the type that I thought would like Downtown Abbey, but apparently after I mentioned it they watched some on Amazon Prime. They got hooked, went through the whole first season, and my father-in-law bought the second season all on his own! I was astonished because this is not a man I thought would enjoy Downton Abbey.

Now if only I could get my husband into it ...

Only show I watch at all is SVU. In fact my next purchase will probably be the season pass for Season 14 from iTunes - if Apple hurries up and adds it.

Be careful what you call period drama. I remember the Mad Men era in real life.

Oops I didn't mean it was a period drama! I meant that it fits into the category of being a show that I actually look forward to every week when new eps are being aired.

According to reviews, most bikes in its price range last about a year. Mine lasted almost three, and that's with me riding it between 1 and 3 hours a day 4 to 6 days a week over most of that three year period.
woah, wtf, people actually ride these things? I always assumed they're just decorative sculptures, sitting in a corner of a room. I've never heard of one being used for genuine exercise before...

To be fair, I think most people use them as glorified clothes hangers.
For me, though, nothing helps control my blood sugar like an hour of cardio first thing in the morning, and in a continental climate, one cannot always rely on the weather being cement enough for a morning run.

It's great that you maintain the motivation to keep the exercise routine up. I remember while I was growing up we had one at home. I think it was used for, like, 2 hours total. It gradually migrated from one room to another, before dying quietly in the garage...
