Went to Quebec, Montreal and Toronto. Watched an old friend get married. Ate lots of food. Got engaged.July 28, 2013
I used to be a movie geek. I took some film studies in University, I spent hours in video stores back when you could get seven old VHS movies for seven days for $10, and I would scour newspapers and magazines for the best movies of the year lists – lining them up for viewing soon afterwards.
But sometime in the last 5-10 years, that all changed. DVD sets of TV shows were more convenient to watch and relatively affordable, sites like Sidereel and TVDuck made it easy to stream things onto the laptop often in my lap, external hard-drives gave me more space to store the stuff I download, my varied media schedule gave me late evenings and afternoons to watch, and, dare I say it, there’s some great TV being made by both basic and premium channels.
It’d be hard to tell you my favourite shows of all time or even of the current season. In fact, the list I came up with: My favourite TV characters of 2012 doesn’t even come from the best TV.
