There are many adjustments you must make when you go on the field as a missionary, and one of them over the years has been getting used to the lack of entertainment….or shall I say, American entertainment. I have not had a TV for the past year and a half, no movie theater, no radio station, sporting events etc. You find ways creative ways to make up for these losses; most popular being DVD’s. I can honestly say that I have watched my DVD’s about a 1000 times, depending on which mood I am in.
Since our American community is pretty small here, we all share and borrow each others DVD’s. You find yourself watching movies and series you normally wouldn’t even care about, but since the choices are slim, you watch it anyways. So, here it begins: I just finished Season 1 of Alias and I am totally addicted! I know this show is super old in the States (its been over for years now), but I am just watching it for the first time. Last night I watched the final episode of the season, and I am dying to start Season 2. That’s the beauty of watching seasons on DVD’s. You don’t have to wait. No commercials! No weeks off from writers strike! No summer hiatus! Just episode after episode! Its a thing of beauty.
Now that I am going to begin Season 2, I’m thinking back to the other shows I have watched here on DVD…Heroes, 24, Grey’s Anatomy, Felicity, and now Alias. I will admit that I’m not a huge fan of all those shows, but one of the first things I will do when I get back to the states is rent Season 6 of 24 (We only had 1-5). And now who knows…the second thing might be to join the CIA! I think I can totally be Sydney with a little training 🙂
