cheap but not
Is Free! almost over already? I'm going to miss this show. I really love it.

I'll be glad when the new TV season finally gets started though. D's had us filling in our viewing with a bunch of random anime, some good and some really bad. And we've done some rewatching, too, like Chobits (which I like a little less every time I see it) and now we're on CCS, even if no one else is.

We've been watching random shows since we no longer have cable. We watched all of The League and I marathoned The Booth at the End in one day. Hulu, Netflix, Infinity on computer through our net service...I don't miss it.

I did watch the first couple episodes of Free! but then I got distracted. Have to go back to it.

I think I'm weird because I'd rather pay for cable than for hulu/netflix or any of that. I know a lot of people go that way, but we watch enough network, cable, and sports (at least during football season) in "real time" to make it worth it for us.

Free! has really turned out to be excellent. At first I was just excited because, yay, a series featuring cute boys. But it's actually very good.

Well, if we could afford it, we'd probably still have cable. That being said, we have discovered quite a lot of shows that we would have never watched without hulu or netflix. But I totally understand it's not something everyone would want to do. :)

Watching stuff as it's on has appealed less and less to me over time. There is some satisfaction of watching something live but I never know what to do with myself during commercials anymore since I used to dvr so many of my shows anyway and just fast forward through them, lol.

I'll definitely look at the rest of Free! in the near future. :)

I've seen a lot of people go that route for financial or just convenience reasons, and it's getting to be that watching TV traditionally isn't really a thing anymore, but, well, I still like to sit down from 7 to 10 and flip around and see what there is to see.

They're different viewing experiences and I guess there's things to be said about both, pros and cons. I don't really like one over the other, I just don't have a choice right now LOL. :)

What random anime did you guys watch?

Well there's Love Lab (which is dumb but I'm watching it anyway), plus a few other slice-of-life/moe things that I told D I just couldn't take they were so bad. He kept telling me to wait to see if they got better, but I gave them all three episodes, and that's enough of my time to waste.

Love Lab was fun! If plotless; it makes the mundane entertaining, like Yotsubato!
