Day 150 of 365: Slingbox


Can I just say how AWESOME the internet and technology is?!?! A friend of mine in England has a Slingbox attached to his sky TV. And he generously lets me steal his cable through the internet!!! I love it. It even gives you a "remote" that functions just like the real thing. I can change channels, record shows and get into his sky+ recorded shows! It's sweeeet! Of course, if they are watching the tv, I can't really go changing channels and stuff... but tonight, they let me watch the new Skins series 3 premiere that he recorded last night for me! :) I really don't take enough advantage of this like I should! Thanks, Matt!

Oohhh.....Skins. They have yet to put Season 2 on BBC America, huh?

I will say though that Last Restaurant Standing will be on here on Tuesday, and Ian and I watched that quite a bit when I was there in October...can't wait to watch the whole thing again. :)

BBCA played series 2 of Skins directly after Series 1 (since for American audiences, 6 or 8 episodes isn't really a "season".) This is the new series- but with new characters (except Tony's sister Effy). It was great!! I might check out the Last Restaurant Standing....

If I had that I would be watching shows like Eastenders, Corrie and Celebrity Big Brother! lol
