Holy crap this sucks

Having a PVR is amazing. I can watch the TV I want, whenever I want to watch it. I'm not tied to a stupid schedule. As a bonus, I can skip commercials!

The only caveat: When it's the summer, and it's Sunday night, there's nothing to tape! So tonight, I had to resort to something I dread doing (and something I mock my closest friends about) ... channel surfing. Holy crap this sucks (notice the clever tie-in to the title of this post).

I started with Vintage Vibe on MuchVibe. I don't know what the hell I was listening to, but it was neither vintage nor vibe. Then I checked out Raptors TV. Cavs-Spurs? I didn't want to watch this the first time around!

I tried Showtime (now in HD!) and the new show The Riches. I've seen posters everywhere touting this as the best new show on TV. After 5 minutes, I tout it the worst 5 minutes of my entire life. I couldn't get past Minnie Driver's attempt at a Texas accent.

My final attempt was Last Comic Standing. You would assume it's a show about stand up comics. But if it is, then why am I so tense and angry?

to quote Bart Simpson, "TV sucks." I wanted to bust out some of my favourite movies, like Aliens, but I already packed it away for our move next week. Holy crap this sucks (yes! Thrice in one post, this is writing genius).
