I've caught that one on History last week, Space. Very cool.
Which goes into why you must get a dish, Uncle. Must....get....a ...dish!
Even if BSG is ending, the channels Discovery/Science, Discovery Times, History, History International....They're addictive for me as chocolate and Vodka...You put it on one of those channels and you can vegitate for hours without even realizing it. I love those channels so much, I thought about putting up a forum dedicated to them last year but I know it would only be a few people talking to each other.
Sure, a lot of it's reruns but all that means is you can catch up on everything rather quickly..
And the recent Planet Earth series was absolutely awe inspiring. I loved every second of it.
I haven't had a chance to watch the debut of "Universe" which started last week but it was about the Sun and I've seen tons of docus on the sun already. Still, I'll try to catch the rerun of it tonight.
Sure, Dish has tons of channels you'll never use but getting 5-8 different channels owned by Discovery Media and of course the 5-9 HBOs, 3 SkineMax (which is now owned by HBO), 5 Encores and 5 Showtimes is well worth the price of the dish.
Not to mention the football ticket for fans of the game.
Heh. I remember switching over to Dish and having a Time Warner Cable knock on the door..I let him go through his speech on switching back to Time Warner from the Direct Tv...must have went on for a good 5 minutes. It was already 98 degrees outside and he was sweating profusely.
Towards the end..
Jarrod : "You have the NFL ticket, yet?"
Time Warner Sweaty Guy: *sigh*
Jarrod: "I didn't think so. "
Door closes. Ah, I know...that was cruel letting him go through all that but hey, it comes with the job.
Something similiar occurred when I was 21 and living in an apartment at the time. Some guy called up launching into a speech about how I won a free roofing special deal..I let him talk for a good 15 minutes. He ends it and asks for any questions on my "free roof".
Jarrod : "I live in an apartment"
