BBC version of Narnia right now. Shockingly dated in many ways, but still with a real charm the big budget versions didn't quite manage.

Plus, the White Witch wipes the floor with Tilda Swinton's version.

Do they have the show on DVD? :)

Usually the News and a show here and there ... I had been wondering about getting a customized TV & Internet setup.

Watching Dexter on Netflix again. I'm at the beginning of the 8th season and trying to not think about that sad, horrible, terrible, crapfest of a series finale.

I got rid of cable tv maybe 16 months ago, so I have to use Netflix and Amazon to watch shows. Well I hadn't realised that the new Game of Thrones episodes wouldn't be available through those places. When I learnt of this this morning I was blind with rage and nauseous with despair. Woe was me. Thankfully the problem was solved (I think) when I told Comcast to modify the services I have, adding HBO and the networks for like $5-7 more than I was already paying, which is cheaper than if I had bought the episodes on Amazon. So all's well that ends well. End story.

A. HBO is starting a direct streaming service
B. For those less inclined to pay for services, Couchtuner.eu is a fantastic site. Just sayin'. If you do use it, make sure you have adblock software on, otherwise, it bombards you with ads.

Isn't the streaming service only available on apple devices for a few months though? Or, the new one anyway? HBO now vs. HBO go, not sure which us which. I tried going through HBO this morning though, but with no success. Anyway, I should be good now.... . . . hopefully!

I have gotten hooked to Fox's The Following.. It seems like an amalgam of different tv show and movie plot lines from the past twenty years or so. In the episode today, i saw something very reminiscent of a plot line from The Terminator.

Man, they sure made it difficult for me. All I wanted to watch was one darn episode of GoT. Besides other problems I ran into since my last post, apparently Xfinity doesn't support watching HBO GO on a PS3... wait, wat? Or something like that? I'm still not sure what exactly that was all about. I finally had to dig out of a box in the closet an old Roku to get things set up. Ahh well... anyway, so I did finally get things resolved and saw the episode from this past Sunday. I guess the biggest question for the season is: will Brienne of Tarth discover the amazing wonders of having sex with Podrick? Time will tell...
