I just wish I could go to their website (Showtime, HBO) and pay for individual episodes on a weekly basis...I'd pay $5 every week to watch Homeland. Same with Dexter. Same with Boardwalk Empire.
I just don't feel like getting cable...and having cable when I don't use it often. So yeah, it may be wasteful but during my TV show time of the year I'll pay $60 a month to watch my three shows...but when they aren't on I'd rather pay $0 a month then have a cable package.
