Dollhouse Fans? TV stuff

Do any of you maybe record Doll­house? We don’t do cable, so Katie and I have been watch­ing it stream­ing on Hulu. This com­ing Friday’s episode isn’t going to be streamed, though, and we don’t want to miss it. Any chance of some help? Pret­ty please?

It’s fair­ly amaz­ing how much you can find to watch online now. Legal­ly! I used to get the CSI DVDs from Net­flix when they were released each year, and watch the whole sea­son in a marathon. Now we watch all three CSI shows on the CBS web site. The same goes for NCIS and Numb3rs. While the site says you can see full episodes of The Men­tal­ist, I haven’t found a way to do it. ABC has The Unusu­als and Cas­tle stream­ing. Burn Notice, Chuck, Bones, and Lie to Me are all on Hulu.

There’s anoth­er show we watch once every few weeks, um, Leg­end? Leg­ends? Some­thing about a Seek­er. I can’t han­dle more of it than that, because the plots rely heav­i­ly on stu­pid­i­ty. That’s too annoy­ing, and while there are pret­ty peo­ple run­ning around in nice scenery, it isn’t enough to make up for the stup.

Com­cast keeps send­ing more and more plain­tive offers, try­ing to get us to sub­scribe to their cable TV and tele­phone ser­vice. When we did sub­scribe to cable, we didn’t get around to watch­ing much. We don’t chan­nel surf or just leavve the set on for noise, so it was wast­ed mon­ey. I sup­pose if we’d also got­ten a Tivo or some­thing sim­i­lar, we would have record­ed the shows we watch. But we didn’t, so we still watched them online when we did watch them.

We can still use the tele­vi­sion to view shows, thnks to a nifty cable Sam pro­cured. That’s bet­ter than watch­ing on a com­put­er mon­i­tor, and we can watch togeth­er. (It isn’t much fun watch­ing alone.)

We Tivo it, but I don’t know how to pull it off the Tivo. I’m sure D prob­a­bly knows or maybe some­one else will com­ment. Are you total­ly averse to tor­rent­ing it? It should prob­a­bly be avail­able with­in a few hours after the show. I know the day that Ter­mi­na­tor: The Sarah Con­nor Chron­i­cles finale aired we didn’t get it because weath­er reports pre-empt­ed it. We were able to down­load it with­in 3 hours after the show.

Oh, just read your icon! I love it!

i was under the impres­sion you could watch it from the network’s tv web­site — can you not?

Usu­al­ly you can, but the sea­son finale won’t be on the web­site.

You’re the first per­son who has ever noticed it, as far as I know 😉

I bet you were ticked!

Not total­ly averse, but we don’t keep the bit­torent stuff installed, so it’s a bit of a has­sle. We’ll try that if we must, though!

I thought last week’s Omega was the sea­son finale, and Epi­taph would not be aired, but we can buy it on the DVD. This Fri­day, a 2 hour prison break is the only sched­uled on Fox for us.

Ack! I looked at tv​.com, and you’re right! And the show is almost cer­tain­ly can­celed 🙁
