After careful consideration and analyzing of our spending habits, Andy and I decided to splurge on cable television while in Washington (we're moving up in the world... slowly but surely). We've only had cable for a few weeks and we both already know television will eat us up soon!
We avoid watching any TV when Jordan is up (exceptions are made for sports and a few choice kid television shows like Mickey's Clubhouse and Sesame Street), but since he goes to bed around 8 PM, our nights have revolved around the tube. At first, we were exploring movies on demand (temporary for six months) and enjoying movies normally rated R which were made friendly PG-13-esque by channels like Fx and TNT. As we progressed from new newbies to slightly veteraned newbies, we discovered an entire world of TV options through television shows on demand.
Last night, we started watching a show from USA, Suits, and we both absolutely love it. Unlike Downton Abbey, which I've been unsuccessful in coaxing Andy try watching, Suits is something we both love! Unfortunately, we realized the on demand availability of this show only lasts through this Thursday, and since we're going out of town tonight, we probably won't be able to watch all of Season 1 in time for Season 2. That might be a good thing, but that doesn't mean I won't try during all of Jordan's naps today!
We will surely be eaten up by our televisions this year, but on the brighter side, we no longer have to invite ourselves over (sorry Rasmussens) to watch BYU games, and we now have a safe shelter when rain, snow, and cold weather creeps in.
There's always a silver lining, even for death by television.
