“House, M.D.” & Bargain Bin Specials

house I’m slow on some issues.  Many of my friends, including probably the biggest proponent, Regan, have been hounding me to start watching House, M.D.  I kept saying, “I have too many shows already.  I can’t get involved in another.”

This was a mistake.

I recently got Season 1, Disc 1 from Netflix, and watched the pilot and second episode.  I’m now disappointed that I’ve let the show go for so long, but at the same time, SUPER-EXCITED that I’ve got a show to watch this summer, when all my other shows stop.

The reason I’d been holding off is because I’m now into Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Law & Order, LOST, The Office, 30 Rock, My Name is Earl and maybe one or two more I can’t recall right now.  It would be hard to commit more time to more TV.  But the timing of my discovery couldn’t be better, because all of my shows will be wrapping up in about a month.  Then, I can catch up at my own pace to the new kid on the block.

Also, Chris and I finished Army of Two last night.  After buying the game, brand new, for $19.99 at Wal-Mart, I talked Sean and Chris into picking it up.  Sean and I played through the first few levels together, but with his erratic schedule, it’s often kind of tricky catching up online.  Then Chris picked it up, too, and he and I blasted through it in three or four nights.  There’s still plenty of reason to go back and play more, also, so not only is squeezing the life out of existing games fun, but now finding the cheapos and having fun with them is great recently, too.
