I can agree with that. I dropped my cable TV back over a year ago, because I rarely found anything on it that I wanted to watch. Of course, I couldn't afford any premium channels, but even if I could, there were more affordable possibilities.

I took down my terrestrial TV antenna, because the only way that I could use it was to prop it up next to the computer, and it only received one channel clear and sharp. However, the decline in programming lately has gotten me to think about digging it out from under the bed.

A new series that might interest some:

Hulu - Touch: Pilot - Watch the full episode now.

If you want any good TV with good channels you pay a hefty price, over $80 (US) a month. The cheaper packages consist of, news, news, news, news, with that in mind I decided to chuck cable, that and because our Government has pulled the plug on analog TV. I haven't had cable in half a year, do I miss it, no. I can get most of my information online, and can I watch 100 channels on any given day, no.

I'd like to comment on the list in post #44.

Stargate - Boring Show
Stargate Atlantis - The Original move was good, the TV series, put me to sleep.
Firefly - Buffy the vampire slayer was better then this show.
The 4400 - Couldn't keep my attention, it moved slow, slow is good, sometimes it's too slow.
Eureka - What I read, it's a spin-off from Warehouse 13.
Werehouse 13 - Looks Interesting, may consider watching
Alcatraz (althog i dont know if its consideret scifi) - It's about the Prison, been done many times in the past
BSG - No Comment
Doctor who - B, o, r, i, n, g

JerometheGiraff,

While I agree with you about the value of cable TV, and I do know of 100s of TV sources on the internet, I have only found a few which has programming that I like. I never ask advice on an internet source to watch though, because tastes vary far too much. Your list of comments illustrates what I mean.

EDIT: BTW, Eureka began in 2007 and Warehouse 13 in 2009, so if one is a spin-off, it's not Eureka. Yes, Alcatraz uses the prison as a backdrop for the series, but it is unlike any other Alcatraz movies or series that I've seen.

lorddenis,

I hadn't heard of The 4400, until reading your list. Since I've not found a free source for watching it, I'm batting around the idea of buying the complete series on DVD, but am still researching it some.

The show began strong but latter became prety bad..in my eyes..you shul but a season at a time..unles its cheaper to buy it whole.

@JerometheGiraff
I dont know what for show's you like but those are some of the best scifi show's. the only thing that i can say about stargate i think it went on a little to long. But it was stil an awsome show.
And Eureka came out before Werehouse 13 so its not a spin off.

and i forgot
Sanctuary.

Werehouse 13? Originally, I thought it was a typo, but since you have repeated it, I'm wondering if there is a series that I don't know about. It sounds like a warehouse where 13 werewolves live. Or is that just the way that it is spelled in Slovenia?

At what point do you feel that the series began it's decline? The reason I ask is because I have only found the first two seasons available. Of course, the complete series is cheaper by the season, but it seems to be the only way to get beyond the first two.

Ok that was a typo. A typo twice My english spelling is bad.

Its a while since i seen it. i think the last season and the 1 before that. i sugest you buy 1 season and then see if its somthing for you.

That may be the best thing to do, but with the pricing that I've found, I can buy the complete series for ~ the same price as season 1 + 2. So even if I don't like the last two, it would be kind of as though they were free anyway...still thinking.

EDIT: Curiously, seasons 3 & 4 are much more expensive than the first two, if bought separately.

great forum... just a lot of info to try to digest, so I thought I'd get feedback if this is not a good idea. It's been about a month since Win 7 has been out, so I hope that there's plenty of info available in case I run into issues for my upgrade to Win7Pro. I have a new, unformatted drive that...
