And by need, of course I mean want. No one actually NEEDS cable in order to survive (although, one could argue that if you have a job such as a tv critic and you need to critique shows that are on cable, you need cable...but that is beside the point).
Reason 1: this post
After reading that, I really want to see the show. (and yes, i know that HBO isn't in regular cable packages...but a girl can dream)
Reason 2: this team
Unfortunately, it is pretty tough to watch "our team" when you are limited to CBC's hockey night in Canada. Not only that, but once playoffs come (and they better make the playoffs) we will be in the wrong zone. We won't automatically get CBC's feed because they'll be too busy showing us the Ottawa and Toronto games.
Last night we had to wander the streets trying to find a place that wasn't Hooters that was playing the Flames game.
Reason 3: I AM SO SICK OF NOT HAVING A CLEAR PICTURE. No matter where you put that antenna, if the winds and the electrical forces are not perfect, a clear picture is next to impossible to find.
And so...I think we will finally break down and get the cable tv cable.
