Cutting the Cord?

A recent article in the Washington Post discussed the tenuous future of television.

I've recently caught up with season three of Dexter and season two of Eli Stone compliments of CastTV. Both series I wasn't able to watch during their regular season, so I was grateful for the opportunity to watch them on my schedule.

But cutting the cord? Not quite there yet.

For one, the quality of the digital video on CastTV was mediocre at best. And there's always the inescapable fact that some series just beg to be watched real time (such as the series finale of LOST) so as to be on the same page as everyone else at the "water cooler."

As for Eli Stone, who I was introduced to via the season one DVD, all I have to say is--Damn, that's a great show! Sadly I don't think it's coming back and I'm going to miss it. Jonny Lee Miller, whose claim to fame heretofore was being married to Angelina Jolie, is completely adorable and what a great American accent!

How come Brits do American accents better than American actors (Gwyneth and Renee, I'm talking to you!)?

I still haven't been able to watch the last two episodes: "Tailspin" and "Flight Path." Anyone know where I can find them?

  1. I think ABC is planning to air a series finale of Eli Stone. I really loved that show. Just never caught on.
