Since I've been stuck watching the same three episodes of The Office on my iPod since NBC and iTunes squabbled about money and NBC's shows were removed a while back, I'm pretty excited about the news that the NBC shows will finally be available for me to spend my hard earned cash on again via iTunes. I know... there are probably some smart people out there who know how to take the episodes off of a DVD and put them up there, but I just don't have that kind of patience. I like to plug in my iPod, download and then sit on the bus re-watching episodes of my favorite comedies and annoying all the people on the bus who usually annoy me by talking loudly on their cell phones. It's really a fair trade.
I will not, however, be forking over extra bucks for a hi-def version. If I'm going to watch something in hi-def, it's going to be on my big TV, not some two inch little screen. I already tried watching Mad Men on my iPod earlier this year, and something definitely gets lost in the translation... at least IMHO. And as much as I adore Heroes, I won't be trying to watch that on my portable player either... unless my DVR breaks and I need an episode stat. Now if iTunes can just persuade the CW to put 90210 episodes up, or Fox to put up new episodes of Terminator: The Sarah Chronicles then I'd be really happy. Broke, but happy.
