Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

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.
I watch most of the shows from DVDs these days. I have to admit that I have quite a few Tv-show boxes still that I have not watched yet. I am currently finishing Quantum Leap - The Ultimate Collection..such a good show
I like Mad Men also

And since this is a shopping thread, I got this via mail today:

A boxed set of the entire series, I take it? Does it butcher the music like some of the individual season sets did?

Well, that's what happens when you eat three lunches.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I went into this junk-store (whatdoyoucallem: dollar-stores?) to see if I could find a cat-toy... They didn't have anything interesting in way of cat-toys though but I did find a laser-pointer -that's the best cat-toy
(I just hate that it's cheaper to buy new pointers than to buy batteries for your old ones.)

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^^ I had managed to collect the entire 10 seasons of SG-1, the two movies, and the 1st, 2nd, and 5th seasons of Atlantis up until last year. I was irritated that each had been re-released at maybe half what I originally paid, and instead of being in the five-case sets, they were all seasons in one single snapcase. On top of this, every episode of each series was available on Netflix streaming, so I sold off the entire collection (except for The Ark of Truth - for some reason I forgot it that day) ... lo and behold, Netflix lost their license to show Stargate! :facepalm:
