Suggestions for tv shows to buy
I'm due Sept. 6 so I'm 37 weeks and 5 days. I was reading a blog of things to have ready the first couple weeks. One of the only things I didn't already have was a tv series on DVD. I thought this was a great suggestion since the shows are about 45-50 min and it's about how long your nursing for. I have a bad habit of wanting to get up and be doing things so I thought this would be a great way to pass time and keep me in bed resting. Now I just need to find a series. We don't have television, so I'm not sure what's good. In college I watched One Tree Hill and now I like Pretty Little Liars. Yes even though I'm in my late 20's. Don't judge. I don't like some of the more main stream like house, lost, or greys anatomy.

Suggestions would be great, but I am on the conservative side so keep that in mind. Also anyone buy used DVDs online. Where?

Thank you!

I'm kind of a geek, so I really liked Battlestar Galactica (DH started it and I was surprised to find myself hooked on it!) and the new Doctor Who series. We don't watch TV either, so I really don't know what's out there either. I'm hoping you get some good suggestions so I can get some ideas, too!

You can find used DVDs pretty cheaply on Amazon.

Firstly, I would suggest Netflix. We are dumping our cable since we don't really watch it and I can get almost everything we do like online or through Netflix streaming.

As for shows, I have to second the new Doctor Who series (never got into the old one, but loving this one). Also love Firefly, Being Human (British version), Buffy/Angel (anything Joss Whedon). I am starting to think I might be a little geekier than I realized :-)

Also-congrats on being so close to your due date!!

Inspector Lewis! I hate crime/mystery shows, but that one is awesome. I think you can buy or watch on (it is from their Masterpiece Mystery series).

Sent from my phone. Please excuse typos.

Revenge. It is such a guilty pleasure!

I"m a geeky sci fi nerd.... So I watched all 4 seasons of Battlestar Galactica during the first few weeks of constant nursing when my daughter was born. She just turned 1 and me and my husband are watching it again. Its on Netflix instant.
I would suggest getting netflix instant. They have tons of shows and movies so you can find something you'd like or get into new shows too.

Do you have anything you can stream on? Like a game station or blueray player? Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon if you have Prime might be great options. Maybe Glee or Downton Abby.

I would also suggest netflix! We pay $8 dollars a month, and use that instead of TV. Let's see, some TV series I've watched that I enjoyed were Battlestar Galactica, Glee, Grey's Anatomy (I know you said you didn't like this one though) Army Wives, United States of Tara, and I'm currently watching The X-Files with my husband, and Parenthood on my own.

I can't even begin to say how glad I am that I'm not the only one who loved Battlestar Galactica!
