Last night whilst combing through the ever expanding netflix queue, I decided to give a new show a shot. That show? Eureka, a syfy (still hate that name) series that is full of people I know from movies and other series (hello Miles Dyson) and is honestly one of the most endearing shows I’ve seen in a while. Usually a show needs a few episodes to get off its feet, two of my favorite current shows, 30 Rock and Community, both had this starting hiccup where it seems the writers don’t have the characters fully realized yet and it seems as if this world just didn’t exist before you got there, then they either stumble or hit a stride. Both of the previously mentioned shows vie for my favorite show on television titles and are highly recommended.
I love my Roku, and now that it has Hulu Plus for a measly $8/month you really have no reason not to get it. Roku is running an awesome black friday deal, so stay up til midnight playing Cataclysm or Assassins Creed or whatever it is that is striking your fancy this holiday and make a purchase that will save you money in the long run. The cable company is ripping you off and you don’t need that much TV, you’ll realize what you love most and support it better.
