I've gotta give points to NBC.com for the vast improvement to their online video presentation. Last season (heck, earlier this year!) watching NBC shows online was a little difficult (who else wanted to kill that kid that decided to live out of his Sentra for a week?), but the quality of the presentation has improved this season. However I've got to take points away for the limited amount of episodes available, because apparently they are only leaving the last 4 or 5 episodes of a series up at a time. I didn't see the first episode of Chuck, so when I decided to look for it online, it wasn't there. (I haven't checked youtube, tho', so maybe it's there, maybe it isn't.)
One of the bigger positive things about watching shows online for me is that when I go to bed early (9, 10 o'clock) those later shows will be available. I don't have TiVo, a DVR, or even a functioning VCR, so this is a nice perk. I can even skip a show (like I did with Heroes last week) and watch it on the weekend instead (which is a good thing because I don't think I would have been able to get to sleep after last weeks Heroes!).
And then there is a show like Las Vegas. I'm familiar with the show, but wasn't really into it until Tom Selleck joined the cast this season. Since it hasn't been locked into my mental viewing schedule, I keep forgetting it airs Friday nights, which was reserved for the occasional movie or Dr. Who this past summer. So online is a great place for me to catch up on my Molly Sims and Vanessa Marcil ogling. :p
BTW, don't Vanessa and Sienna Miller look like they were separated at birth?? (I couldn't find any appropriate pics to use as examples, but if you know who both actresses are, you might see what I'm talking about. Besides the way they part their hair, I think the set of their eyes is very similar. Maybe it's me.)
Now, the subject line is really hard to explain. I know where it came from (an exclamation made by Jack Davenport in an episode of Coupling), but I'm not exactly sure why I blurted it out on my drive home from work. Something must have surprised me or something, so instead of blurting out "wow" or something like that, I blurted out "Britt Ekland!" (link and everything. ;) )
I don't think I'm mentally well, why do you ask?? :p
