Bah !! mostly snore value !!. Best thing about this time of year is that the sun is still up when this dross is filling our TV screens, so nothing missed anyway !!!
Though 24 is interesting enough, and perhaps the last season of Lost may entice me back ... all the Lost featurettes that explain was has gone before has filled in enough of the missing blanks.
Each to their own, I guess. :-)

the thing is most Tv shows in NZ have been on the internet for months and the keen fans have seen all the shows, and nowadays you dont even have to download them ,you can watch them 20 minutes after the show has aired in the USA streamed to your PC.

Things are changing. For example 24 is only a couple of weeks behind the U.S. this season.

freitasm: Things are changing. For example 24 is only a couple of weeks behind the U.S. this season.

24 is over a month behind, i.e. 11pm-12am airs in a couple of days, and we just had 5pm-6pm on Friday.  Lost looked promising, starting only a week behind, but they made the (imo) poor decision to air only 1 hour of the 2 hour premiere so we're now two weeks behind on that.  Still, that's a lot better than things used to be.  I wouldn't bother downloading Lost.  As long as I can avoid any spoilers for two weeks, I can watch easily in HD at home without pillaging my cap, shame TV2 don't do 5.1 sound though!

Ahh, I just can't the hang of sitting down and getting comfy in front of the computer screen - too many other distractions and I find that my attention wanders .....

TV is for watching TV, and the computer is for, well, computery things :-) I could route the video signal from the PC to the TV via HDMI, but then I will have to get a remote wireless keyboard, and all that jazz ... it's on the Round Tuit.
