A few years ago I blogged about being a lucky Lazygal regarding tvs and how I've never had to buy one. I did buy one for Thing One two years ago, but I've never bought one for myself. Why mention it now?
As I've been wading through the Massive Summer To Do List™ I find it helpful to have something on in the background. Yes, I could listen to music but I've also got quite the backlog of shows people have insisted I watch because... well, because. Because the tv in my room is so old (ok, 13 years old) it's not Internet Ready. It's not even a flat screen (gasp!). But while looking for some series that would take me through a number of those tasks that only require partial attention I found that a few were on Netflix and that somehow I could log in via my cable box.
Imagine my surprise. And pleasure. I do watch my Netflix DVDs on that tv (there are far more DVDs available than there are things to stream, btw) and now, to some extent, I can watch other things. First up? The Crown.
