WHAT IT'S LIKE WATCHING A TV PROGRAM ON THIS COMPUTER

I've been watching a TV series on Hulu. My computer does not allow continuous action, but it does allow continuous audio. Freeze frame of a wall. Dialogue for two minutes and I never did see who either of the two men talking were.

Freeze frame of one person who is talking to another but I don't get to see the other person so I don't know what is going on, or with whom, and it was kind of a heated argument.

Change of scene. Two women talking but I can't tell who is saying what because the computer freeze frames on one of them and then in 30 seconds I see who she is talking to...or maybe who was talked to. I'm not sure who was once married to the man the other is now dating...I wonder if this is worth it.

Probably not.

Maybe for more reasons than a slow computer.

PS And I have to listen to the commercials because there is no way to skip forward. Yes, probably/definitely not worth it. Probably. Maybe.

Prolly you need to not watch the TV on your computer anymore. Prolly you should be doing other stuff, like finding the slush mugs. Or buying me somthing pretty...I mean, cute.

It sounds like a waste of time to me.

our internet in Logan worked great for tv and movies, and we used it every night to watch our shows when the kids were in bed and we almost never used the tv. Now, we have satelite which works okay for blogs (without a lot of pictures) and facebook, but it is almost impossible to watch anything that moves, even a two minute video from youtube.
I feel like I've had to change my whole lifestyle because of the dumb internet!
That is all.
