Ok, in the last year or so, I have gotten into watching more and more TV online through various sites.
This is not only easy for me (because I hate new crap for the most part), but I can watch it exactly when I want, turn it off, and its waiting for me when I come back for it.

I don't have Tivo, but I still have a VCR that I use once in a while though.


Online, other than a slight amount of buffering issues, and waiting a few seconds here and there for an ad to finish, I am really happy doing it this way.
PLUS you can get shows that aren't on here in the states, and old shows that you can't find anywhere else.
Hell, I think you can even get a ton of old shows online, that you can't get on DVD yet too.


Anyway, here are links to a few of the bigger sites that I use.

TV DUCK ~~~~~~> http://www.tvduck.com/

Find Internet TV ~~~~~> http://www.findinternettv.com/FullEpisodes.aspx

Free TV Video Online ~~~~~> http://www.free-tv-video-online.info/internet/

BLINKX ~~~~~> http://tv.blinkx.com/


Blinkx is one of the bigger ones I found more recently, its got alot to offer, and I have had no problems so far.
Hell, it has probably close to TWO THOUSAND different shows listed on its front/main link page alone!


Once in a while, you will find some chinese links/sites, and all you have to do is "refuse" installing the language packs, and tinker with the controls for a few seconds, and you can view on any of those sites too.
"Tudou.com" and "56.com" are some foreign sites I have been linked to and used. Some are slower than others, but these worked ok for the most part.


Maybe this will open up countless hours of entertaining viewing for those here that didn't know.
Now hopefully this won't interfere with your primetime PTE experience here on the board, :dance: only help you find some goodies you may have been missing elsewhere.

I believe DrMoreau may also have a few other reliable sites to add in here as well.

I'm the same way TZ DZ FAN. Although I haven't watched as much as I would like to online because this computer is a piece of shite, I have seen so much that I would have never seen in a lifetime without the internet showing me some free tv shows and movies. :shock:

Now why don't you take 20 minutes out your day and go watch "Cutting Cards" the Tales from the Crypt episode that DrM told you to go watch online for free :) Its on youtube...

I will catch that one again in the next few days.
Thats one of the very few TFTC episodes that I caught years ago, and I still remember bits and pieces of it. 8)

Its mostly just a faded memory now, so I will probably get to it over the weekend.

This seems to be a decent one if you miss an episode of a current show.
I believe quite a few episodes are posted or linked to, within a few hours of their airing, in case you miss them.

Thanks TZ DZ,
How are you? Hope all is well.

I usually goto HULU.com for the Outer Limits. I goto Youtube.com for the Zone. I will check out your sites, Thanks.

Is there anywhere to watch Push, Nevada? Show from 2002 I think - aired on ABC, was sort of interactive with the audience, but got canceled too quickly. It had a Twin Peaks feel to it, though not as quirky comedic, just quirky weird.

Also, there was supposed to be a book published: The Push, Nevada Experiment; but it never got published. I had a PDF file on my computer, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know of a PDF version somewhere on the net? I can't find it.

A quick look at the more dependable sites, has turned up nothing.
TVDuck has a page for it, but its just empty links, that are basically "coming soon".


Your best bet at this point is a torrent site.
I do not generally go to any of those though, I prefer to stay on the "safer" side of the fence when it comes to downloading and viewing things online.

DrM may be able to dig something up.

I watched it douche :ROTF: ................ I just never posted on it (yet).

As earlier noted, I had seen it before though, many years ago.
Oddly enough, that was one of only a handful of TFTC I got a chance to see on tv years ago.
