I’ve had kind of an odd relationship with television for some time now. Over the course of my lifetime I’ve gone from watching TV on a cheap TV with rabbit ears to digital streaming, which is kind of an amazing difference when you stop to think about it. I actually got into hooking my TV up to my computer before the technology was really there for it, when a video card with an S-video output was a possibility but an oddity, and watched a pretty enormous amount of anime fansubs with that and subsequent upgrades to component video. I used to be a total TV junkie too, and in high school I had plenty of time to watch new episodes of Star Trek (TNG and DS9) and Babylon 5 as they came out. 24 was something of a turning point because it was the first show that I tried to watch during its normal broadcast times and then gave up and binge-watched, then in the form of a DVD boxed set.
