I hate JMS!!

GKarsEye

Regular
Goddamnit! I was so happy with my cable service: basic cable with Skinemax and HBO, as a part of a total package that includes high-speed internet and phone service. Splitting the bill with my roommate, and it's a good deal.

I never missed Showtime. I mean, they show movies, right? If I wanna see a movie, I just rent it. Ok, no problem.

But along comes JMS with another show, which of course I have to watch somehow. So now I have to get Showtime.

Blast you, JMS! Blast you!

"You do not make history. You can only hope to survive it."
 
*sighs desperately*

I'm in your boat, GKarsEye, except with my current living situation I can't get Showtime. At ALL. I don't know anybody with Showtime. At ALL.

My world is at an end.

So, no Luke Perry for me. No Alex Zahara (with hair). No Malcolm-Jamal Warner or post-apocalyptic hope or Jeremiah or JMS' fantastic writing or even the work of some dude running the camera or running around with duct tape...

Oh, horrid! How could I come to this terrible end?

(Ok, so it's not so bad. I'm exaggerating.
wink.gif
But I -am- annoyed, because it'll take me, oh, two years to see it in syndication...?

Unless they put it out on DVD...!)

Hmm, Channe, you could always ... oh I don't know ... perhaps bribe someone to send you tapes or something.

I'm not saying anything. I didn't say anything then and I'm not saying anything now... It's been a long day. I must go to my sanctum and meditate on this in private.

March 3, 2002 at 5 pm I will be watching Jeremiah on the east coast feed and I will watch it again at 8 pm when it is on the west coast feed. Thank you DirecTV and JMS.

Remember dear readers, you heard it here first. Off the record, on the Q.T., and very hush-hush - Danny DeVito as Sid Hudgens in L.A. Confidential
 
*grumbles*

Ok, it is official that I hate the cable companies. I had to get digital cable in order to get this one premium channel which nearly doubles our cable bill. Ah, the things I do for my JMS fix!

It better be a good show, right, Lyta?

Well, ehm, at least you can get Showtime. My rent contract forbids that sorta thing...

Sigh. Episode guides and petitioning people who DO have Showtime for me, callooh callay...

Well, I have Direct TV at my house, and at the moment, we don't have Showtime. It would cost an extra $12 bucks or something a month for it. I was gonna have to fork over the bucks, but my friend has Showtime already.
smile.gif
Alas, I will prob be seeing them a few days later, but at least I can see them!

Oh, crackers!

I *thought* my friend had Showtime - turns out the extra $30 a month was too much for her to handle, so she got rid of it.

Ah, well, there's always the episode guides...

Damn straight! I wish I could split the cost with someone since I only want one extra channel. Grr. I have a friend who has digital cable but doesn't have a working VCR. Besides, I don't think I could rely on my friends for satisfying my obession with JMS.

Hmm, too bad you are all the way on the other side of the country Channe ... I'd let you borrow my tapes.

Oh, well. I'll find someone, even if it has to be through the U.S. Postal Service...

Well I'm in the catergory of can't get showtime and don't know who does I've read as much as I can about Jeremiah and it sounds really interesting.

------------------
 
I fall under the "Won't get Showtime. Even for JMS." category.

I'll wait for it on syndication.

I think we're gonna get digital cable anyways, so I might as well get Showtime. Although I doubt it will still be running by the time I get digital.

*cackles gleefully*

I don't think these services will be available by the time Jeremiah airs but I heard that the TiVo Series 2 will have the capibility to share programs with other subscribers. So, we will all just need to get a TiVo S2 and just download it from my TiVo. *evilgrin*

Well, at the very least you can enter to win one of their S2 units from TiVo's Contest page.
wink.gif


Open only to U.S. residents who, as of date of entry, are 18 years of age or older. Sorry Sol! See, another reason to move to the US. *bigevilgrin*

BTW, how long are you expecting your digital cable install to take? Or are you saying that you don't expect Jeremiah to last very long? *scratchs her head*
