I Hate Central Pennsylvania


Thank GOD for Netflix.

I watched the first disk of Supernatural last night. It was SO good. The actors have tremendous chemistry, and the writing is smart and funny and scary without going overboard on the cheap flinches and gore.

Today my kids are at the inlaws so my husband and I can celebrate our 14th anniversary. We're going out tonight, but in the meantime I have the afternoon free so I went to Blockbuster to get disks 2 and 3 of Supernatural. You know how it feels to crash when you're really excited about something and then find out you can't have it?

Yeah. That's how I feel right now, because the Blockbuster near my house doesn't have it. Neither does the library, though that doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me is that the Blockbusters in Dillsburg and Camp Hill and Lemoyne and the West Coast Video and Hollywood Video don't have it, either. I finally asked, at the last place I called, why not. She said the owner doesn't feel it will rent well.

WTF??????

I hope they're happy, because every one of those stores has just guaranteed that they will never get my business again. I'll just have to learn a little patience and stick with Netflix.

All Hail Netflix.

Wouldn't rent well? Morons! I'm glad you're enjoying Supernatural. I love the show.

I know, Trish, you're one of the reasons I decided to give it a try. :)

My Blockbuster didn't have it, so I bought the first season. On the 19th. From half.com. Ask if it's come yet.

But yeah, I love that it's scary without being gory, and that it uses old legends as storylines.

Oh, Mary, that's so frustrating! I hope it comes soon.

Me, too! I'd hoped to see last season before this season started!
