As always, as I get to the end of my season 2 Stargate Atlantis DVDs I start to scramble for a way to watch season 3 (and 4 and 5). Yesterday I checked:
-Best Buy
-HMV
-Future Shop
-Amazon
-Chapters
-Ebay
for the cheapest price. Unsurprisingly Ebay was the best deal, 25 instead of 36 like everywhere else. And then I checked my Paypal and sighed and closed everything.

Today I watched a few more eps, and got more desperate. The last time this happened I ended up renting all the discs at Blockbuster, but that's not a place anymore. So I said fuck it, I will relook up prices on ebay and strongly consider it.

Ebay crashed.

I tentatively took it as a ~sign~ and looked up DLs. 93 seeds to 385 leechers. FML.

And I know what you're saying. Watch tv online, dummy. But my computer has some sort of selective internet problem, where I can DL like 800kb/s, but it totally refuses to buffer anything. At all. The last time Vince came over it literally took more time to watch the first five minutes of OUAT S2 streaming with all the buffering problems than it did to download the entire season.

Honest to god, I wish it was 5 years ago. I would have just recorded it from the tv onto VHS tapes and then watched it later/now. It would have been glorious.
