I just use BitTorrent to download a bunch of TV shows. Great to stay up to date with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Leno, Letterman, Weeds, Conan O’Brien etc. All the good content is on there and shows are usually uploaded the day after.
It’s the summertime now so when prime time kicks back in gear, there will be The Office, 30 Rock, Scrubs (maybe?) Saturday Night Live, etc to watch. I thought I’d move to Taiwan and lose touch with pop culture but I don’t think that’s a real concern now.
In the middle of watching the Emmy award-winning series “John Adams”. Man it’s quality! I guess I’ve never been one to watch historic dramas, but Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney are really great.
What else? For reality TV I just finished the latest season of Last Comic Standing. Was pretty good. Also looking forward to Reno 911 when it comes back on.
I also tried TV Ants to watch sports and have had success in the past. It was especially useful when there were some German colleagues visiting during Euro 2008 and they wanted to catch the game in Taiwan. I’ve recently tried to get Olympic coverage, but I’ve got to mess around with my router at home because I think some of the ports are blocked for this. (Never had an issue when I was using it elsewhere.)
TV Ants is worth a try if you want to get sports in the future.
