As you may also know, one of the caveat’s is that we are allowed to watch movies.
So what constitutes a movie?
This question came up after I threatened on Twitter (follow me HERE) to borrow or steal Seasons 1-6 of Lost, mostly because Bryan Allain kept talking about it EVERY Tuesday on his blog and I finally started paying attention (by the way, if you haven’t read his recap you have to – it was apparently the most read blog ON THE PLANET on that particular day, or close to it).
Magically, “Lost: Season One” appeared on my dining room table (thanks Bryan).
Suddenly I was faced with a conundrum, a quandary, a sticky situation (can you tell I pulled these from my Word thesaurus?): is watching Lost on tv legal? TECHNICALLY, it’s not a tv show anymore, right? Maybe? Couldn’t I classify Seasons 1-6 as a really, really, really long movie?
Maile wasn’t buying it, so I took to Twitter, asking people to vote yeah or nay, hoping to garner some support.
Well, it didn’t work – I was voted down by a margin of 5-1 (actually, the total vote was 5-1).
So like a kid who loses best of three and shouts “okay, best of five” then “best of seven” then “best of nine,” I’m taking this vote to the blogosphere.
What say you? Does watching Lost: Season 1 violate our terms of “no TV for a year”? Be careful how you vote – my short-term entertainment future depends on it. And if you’ve already voted once, feel free to comment, but no way does your vote count again (unless you’re the one who voted in favor of it on Twitter, then by all accounts vote early, vote often, vote anonymously).
