Free on-demand for sick at home nights
My hand and shoulder issues have been flaring up again, for whatever reason, so I've been home the past two nights (and probably should've just gone home the second half of the previous night). But no worries, as long as there is free TV to stream on the internet. Who needs to pay for On Demand when some great shows are available on the web whenever I'm free? One of the most satisfying TV shows in recent memory is "Friday Night Lights." Every episode leaves me with the kind of satisfaction usually reserved for great movies. It's that good. It manages to take what could be a fairly cliche topic -- high school drama in a small town -- and turn it into something more, with realistic characters, good writing and great performances.
