TV Shows on iTunes

by brian d foy

I missed the last several episodes of Battlestar Galactica earlier this year. No big whoop. I often complained about the underwhelming story and lack of serious robot whup-assing. I figured the SciFi Channel would just show them over and over again. They didn't. Oh well.

When iTunes announced TV show downloads, I didn't pay attention to that too much either. I don't like that much on TV, and not anything in iTunes. A week or so ago, they added Battlestar Galactica and last night I thought I finally had an excuse to check it out. If the SciFi Channel isn't going to show them again, I might as well buy them. I bought the episodes I missed ($1.99 each) and caught up. I'm not sure it was worth the $6, but that's how it goes. I'll be ready for season three.

When I got home this morning, I noticed the red recording light on the TiVo. No big whoop. It happens. I kept noticing it all day though. Just what are you recording all day, roboTV?

It turns out the SciFi Channel played the entire second season of Battlestar Galactica today. I could have saved my $6. Curses!
