It is something that I like to do and have found some real gems.

Best Among these are:

Kidnapped, a tight, superbly filmed and acted very violent series. It has a great cast headed up by Oscar Winner Timothy Hutton and Emmy Awardee Dana Delaney. In the tradition of 24 it follows the kidnapping of a teenager from the time he is kidnapped until the failed rescue attempt 20 episodes later.

Space Above and Beyond, Marines fighting two enemies in Space. The Chigs, an enemy unkown until they attacked some Earth Colonies and the Silicates, sentient, self-aware humanoid robots that had escaped into Space and were fighting a guerilla style war and collaborating with the Chigs.

The Black Donnelleys, Young Irish brothers taking on the Italian mob in Hell's Kitchen. Much better than The Sopranos.

I liked Space Above and Beyond. Wouldn't mind getting the series.

Closest thing to watching old shows online would be through Netflix on my Blu-ray or Xbox.

Why would I watch anything online in my office at home, in my office chair, when I can watch it on television on a comfy sofa?

A lot of people have media computers connected to their TV's. They even have a windows media edition operating system. One of mine does.

One other thing, the chair I have at my desk with hassock rivals any recliner or couch. I fall asleep there often.

You have a hassock at your desk? I always figured you for a Tuffet kind of guy. :p

I think I remember Lurkie talking about sitting on a hassock....or was it a Cossack? I get confused.

Hassock does sound French. Do you think Rocky has French Provincial decor in his home?

Hey, Bubba is the manliest of men, even without a skullet.

And since I am French, I am by definition manly. It is in our genes. :cool:

A hassock is essentially the same thing as a footstool or ottoman, a small, cushioned piece of furniture that serves as a footrest or small seat. The word hassock is of English origin and also refers to a cushion used in churches to kneel on when praying. A hassock can also mean a small, dense, tuft of grass that forms a hillock or tussock. The words hassock, footstool, and ottoman can be properly interchanged in most situations, except for when referring to a grassy area.

No idea what a Vic-20 is. I know the computer can be hooked up to the TV, I've just never seen a reason to do it. Some of you probably have a toilet feature on your LaZBoy chairs, too. :rolleyes:
