Ok, so I may be a hopeless bore at the water cooler once I start hanging out around water coolers, but here are some reasons I don't miss not watching television (we did recently figure out how to get network channels on our TV, but much of what comes through is plain dismal).

To watch:
These two above plus Netflix have been keeping us busy.  Any more suggestions?

To listen:
  • This American Life - every week, the most touching, thought-provoking, inspiring show on the radio waves.  People stories.  One reason to get Showtime channel on cable is to watch the new TV version of the series...
  • On the Media - ditto.  Tales of media innards, power and corruption, good and evil. 
And all the other wonderful podcasts and radio programs from NPR. 

The most wonderful thing is that you can enjoy most of the above anywhere you are in the world!  Just to think that even a YEAR ago, much of this wasn't out online...

There is a good deal of solemn cant about the common interests of capital
and labour. As matters stand, their only common interest is that of cutting
each other's throat.
-- Brooks Atkinson, "Once Around the Sun"
