David and I have turned off cable. We are not bombarded with with constant adverts and repeat shows. That is why we have no cable and we have lots of DVD's plus we read and do other things to fill our days.
When trying to watch Lost on tv the amount of adverts made viewing challenging then they would repeat the same episode the following week and it went on and on until we became lost. So, we decided to purchase the DVD's and currently we are watching Lost.
It is a great show with fantastic actors and characters. They make unfunny moments funny! It shows how a large group form its own sub-groups, how they survive the elements and go through some strange unearthly periods. Is it a psychological experiment or is it fate that brought them to the island? Only time will tell.
