Television > Film

I’m serious. Think about it. Films tell a decent story, but if they are really worth it, you always want more. That’s what good television does. Quick logic, but just the same, seems logical. Television is gaining on the film industry quickly. Actors are taking parts in long-term series more often, as do directors and screenplay writers, creating amazing stories that go on for years, building tension and suspense the whole time. Now I want to begin an eleven-part series introducing and analyzing my top favorite programs, hopefully in an overall effort to prove my point in some way. Yes, I am addicted to television. Blame Netflix.

1. Dexter
2. The Office
3. True Blood
4. Entourage
5. Avatar: The Last Airbender

I tried to mix it up, based on what I have watched the entirety of, and I’ll probably add more, once I ‘collect more data’ (aka sit around and watch T.V.)  Maybe I’m lame, but I can explain.  You just wait.

I don't own this picture. Sorry. But Dexter is amazing.

Wii + Netflix = Win

This isn’t exactly a video game, so I didn’t mean to mislead, but just the same, it needs addressed. I got a Nintendo Wii about two years, and I really had no use for it. All of that changed when I discovered the wonderful world of wireless internet. I signed up for Netflix, and my life changed slightly. I now had access to many television programs where ever there was an internet browser to be found, and where better to watch television than my television?  Netflix is definitely the best service for movie and television rental right now, and their streaming video has definitely got the upper hand over Blockbuster and Redbox.  The most fun I’ve ever had re-arranging things has got to be on their website, where the instant cue has become for me a semi-endless list of future entertainment.  If you haven’t checked it out, there are entire seasons of titles like Dexter, Weeds, Law and Order, Lie To Me, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Office, Lost, and many more, including countless movies that I never would have watched without the ease of access offered by Netflix.  Seriously, it’s way better than Comcast OnDemand.  And it’s more fun to do with a WiiMote.  It’s only like 8 bucks a month, so go do it.  It’s worth it.  I wouldn’t lie to you.

Finally, the Wii is fun
