Watched it back in the 60's for a short time… our old black and white TV could never get Channel 2, ABC) very good… I used to laugh when someone bumped into a set and it would shake!

I remember watching TV that way. And then there was cable, and my young eyes witnessed the miracle of boobs on TV!

A simpler time! Now you show a boob and they fine your ***.

At least cable can get away with it............and apparently makes the most of it.

yep, I don't pay extra for the premium cable channels either. In a world of DVD's and downloadable content it's just a waste.

I don't pay for anything. I just go with the TV channels that air for free.

I find it's still overall cheaper to just buy TV series boxsets either when they come out or hit sale instead of the monthly cost of upgrading. Or borrow a friend's collection.

Or rent them.

That's how I watched the Sopranos, DVD boxsets. The only problem was that I would have to go out of my way to avoid spoilers because the DVD would come out about 10 months after the season aired on HBO.

I do that with what in the US would be Network stuff as well.

This week I watched the whole first season of 'Modern Family' for the first time. Just before Christmas I borrowed season 1 of 'The Vampire Diaries' but didn't really like it. In fact, borrowing season 1 of 'Fringe' from the same friend is how I got into that show. Then I just started buying the season sets myself once I had liked the first lot.

I'm going to have to do that with Fringe. That's a show I always wanted to watch but I want to see it from the beginning.

I like it. I won't call it the best show ever made..............but I find it pretty enjoyable. Moreso from season 2 in all fairness when it starts to get into it's own thing and moves away from the slightly 'The X-Files' feel it had in season 1.

From what little I know of it, it seems like it's an X-Files with alternate realities
