Decisions, decisions

So we are at a crossroads. What to do to enhance our TV options. Right now we have basic cable, which is fine but offers very little of interest to either of us when we do get a chance to watch.

One the one hand, Netflix is having a deal for a free first month. We joined and just got the first season of Entourage. So we could continue on the miser plan of $4.99/month and get two movies per month. We're really not movie folk, so I wonder if we will actually watch them. I dont' know if we have ever rented a movie for entertainment, so the Netflix option isn't all that promising. I'm honestly not sure that we'll even watch Entourage even though its supposed to be great.

On the other hand we could have DVR, Verizon's version of TiVo. That will let us record our favorite shows to watch whenever the hell we feel like it. Seinfield, Scrubs, Sex and the City. Steven Colbert & the Daily Show. My nerdy HGTV favorites...Designed to Sell, House Hunters and that show where Candace Olsen hosts and designs. Probably a lot of sports too. Oh and my favorite Food TV shows. These are all half-hour commitments and much more likely to be watched than those 90+ minute movies.

Hmmm. When you put it in writing, there isn't much of a decision to make. We're going DVR people!
