Behind the times (but catching up)

First of all - for those of you who have not discovered Netflix yet - I highly recommend it! I can send back a disc one day and have another one two short days later. And we are on the "3 disc" plan - so there are always a couple here to watch.

And Netflix has helped us not be behind the times. I'm sure that you have all heard of the TV show "Lost". And if you remember - it came out shortly after the Tom Hanks movie "Castaway". I remember thinking "here's another show that is based on a movie. The movie was great - but the TV show will never be as good". So - we never watched it.

But we would go back to work the day after a new episode and it would be all the buzz. Everybody was talking about it. Everybody except the Leengrams, that is.

So we tried watching a show. The problem was it was 4 or 5 episodes into the season and it made absolutely no sense to either of us. So we never watched again and we fell farther and farther behind the times.

Then a couple of years ago we signed up for Netflix. The sent us movies. We watched movies. We sent the movies back. They sent us more. And the cycle continued.

Until one day we discovered that Netflix also rents TV shows. Here's our chance to be one of the cool kids again!

We are finishing up season 4 of Lost now. We didn't quite get it all done for the premier of Season 5 a few days ago - but never fear. We have it recorded - and we should be ready to go very soon!

Talk to you all soon - we've gotta go. Jack is getting ready to have is appendix cut out...
