    Sometimes if I miss a show the night before, like the Bachelorette, I catch it online. We have Netflix so we do watch movies on the computer. Mostly Thomas the Train

    Well, I don’t have sound, so . . . .

    It’s a good idea, though. I could use it to screen movies for my kids, for example. (I bought a copy of “Annie” and thank goodness I decided to check it out. Disgusting! For preschoolers, anyway.)

    I did buy a portable DVD player. I used to let Miss E use this to watch videos while her sister was in vision therapy. I’ve also used it to keep them occupied when I’m on a business trip or they’re home sick on a work day. It’s nice to have.

    Yes, I’ve watched missed episodes of Project Runway and Survivor, but it’s very broken up so it gets frustrating!

    I never have but I read an Internet company is buying the rights to All My Children so I may start. Honestly, I never think of it.

      and One Life to Live too!!!

    • Joy says:

      Really?? Cool. I wonder what actors will stay. Do you think a soap on the Internet is gong to be able to stay alive? Do a lot of people watch a lot of stuff online? I didn’t realize.

      • Jenny says:

        i’m pretty sure the soap operas will get watched. Look at how many people were upset when they heard that All My Children was cancelled. I don’t watch that one, but I do watch OLTL sometimes.

      • Joy says:

        I watched OLTL for years, I’d watch it again. I hope it takes off and a lot of the actors will stay with it. Susan Lucci had been offered Desperate Housewives. She hasn’t said if she’ll do that show or not. Didn’t this buy out just happen a few days ago?

  5. Since moving to Germany I use my computer much more frequently to watch shows because that is the only way I get the most recent episodes. I am currently watching true blood and the closer. Only suggestion is to always be careful of the source because of viruses. Great question!

    Funny you should ask. I am currently watching a British Sky 1 miniseries called “Strike Back” online. Of course, things like Hulu don’t work for me, because they do (I don’t know what it’s called) real-time streaming, and don’t let you buffer. So some sweet soul has uploaded the entire 6-episode miniseries to YouTube in 15-minute increments! This allows me to open a tab, start the loading, and go elsewhere. I spend a good hour loading all the parts of the episodes, then sit back and watch the whole thing. It’s a pain, but it’s a good miniseries, so I figure it’s worth it! (I *really* wish they’d just release SB on American DVD, so I could either purchase or netflix it, but noooooo) (lovely. I just looked at Amazon. They have it on BluRay, but I don’t have one of those, either! AAK!!)

    As for things like Netflix streaming, no. My DSL seems too slow, or I don’t have enough computer memory or something. It always ends up ridiculously choppy, and it won’t buffer, and I shut it off before I even get started. I’ve never tried it with the Wii, but none of the stuff on my queue is in the streaming list anyway. So now that they’ve split the accounts, I don’t even have stream capability anymore.

    No. I sit at this thing enough, I can’t imagine just sitting here for an hour or longer watching something.

  8. Phyllis says:

    I like catching Joyce Meyers because I can watch a whole week of her messages in one sitting rather than missing one in the middle due to life.

    I’ve watched a couple shows on Hulu: The Big Bang Theory and Lie To Me — but not with any regularity.
