Big Bribes

Who's got cable?

And what do I need to give you to tape and mail the new Big Love episodes? Pictures, money, medication? Fess up cause I'm desperate to see season 2 and I can't get husband to spring for cable!

We have cable but not HBO (just another sucky movie channel). I know what good am I ?

I'm kind of thinking of shelling out the extra dough because it would appear I am missing some very cool shows and we just can't have that now can we ?

Oh Lotta, I would if I could. We don't have HBO, but I did get the first season on Netflix and CAN'T WAIT for season 2! So, if you get anyone to send the tapes to you, could I borrow them next?

Sadly, my friend, I do not have movie channels. Sorry.

I convinced my husband that I love HBO and got him to pay for it. I only planned on watching Big Love, but then I started thinking about it and honestly 13 bucks a month just isn't worth it for one TV show. So, sadly, I gave up my HBO.

I have HBO, but no VCR. I have one upstairs, but I dont know if I can record with it. It is very old. I can try it out and let you know.

Another option: My TiVo will be recording the shows for me and it is hooked to our network. What I will do is ask my husband or one of the many computer geeks we keep on hand if I can transfer it to my computer and then send it to yours. I have no idea if this will work, but I think it might.

If not, I would be willing to put you up for the season and you can watch it on the comfort of my sofa.

And for all of you that dont have HBO, for shame. I dont even watch the movies on it, just the shows and specials. I cant contain myself regarding the last episode of the Sopranos. And the previews for the new shows look so good. You are so totally missing out.

Not come across that one - but maybe I need to deal with season one first!
Cheers

Lotta said...

Wendy - If you can figure it out I'll pay you back somehow!!!

At least Weeds 2 is at Blockbuster now!

Lotta, what is the day and time? We have HBO and an abundance of idle VCRs (don't ask). My only worry would be my feeble mind trying to remember to do this for you every episode, but I don't have a problem doing it.

Sorry I'd offer, but as we are moving our TV will be out of commission for quite a bit of the summer. Plus, I honestly dont' have a clue whether we even have HBO either. Sorry I'm no help.

Slackermommy said...

I haven't heard of it. Is it that good? Is it dark and disturbing like Nip/Tuck or Six Feet Under? If so, I'm watching it, taping it and sending it to you.

Just found your blog...very funny! I love Big Love! Starting on the 11th and I will be glued to the tv watching it every Monday till the season finale. Have you seen Weeds (Showtime)? Another funny show. That one is coming back on soon too. Highly reccomend. Convince your hubby that you will not eat out lunch once/twice a month so you can have it.

I didn't have CAble for several years. Had to make cut-backs b/c of 1 income ya know. But, we made it work. We lived near Chicago and got a great antenna signal from Sears Tower. Since we moved, not so much signal...so we had to give in just to get BASIC channels. We only have a few channels, no HBO sorry! I don't like HBO anyway, especially at night. There's lots of yucky, questionable, pretty much porn stuff on. I don't like the idea of that. Good Luck getting your show though. You also might be able to try Mama Barter Yahoo Group. It's group for Trading stuff and maybe someone would trade you for copies of the show?

Lotta said...

I love weeds! I'll check out the mama barter group too, that's a nice tip.

Looks like I have someone who is willing to tape it for me for the cost of postage! Yea!!

Eliz - You might think Big Love is yucky.

Domestic Chicky said...

Jenny said...

Lotta said...

Jenny - I'm plotting. Someday I'll get myself there.
