Hello from Paris, folks. I'm settling in, although for some reason the time difference seems to be hitting me harder than usual. I feel like a zombie. And I can tell that keeping up with my programs is going to be a bit of a pain in the ass. How do you international folks do it?

I took advantage of the plane trip to finish up the last few episodes of S2 of the The Americans and I continue to be completely flummoxed by the lack of universal love for this show. It is so good, across the board. There are no villains and no heroes here, in a way that is not true for any other show I can think of.

On a different note, brought to you by jet lag, I bring you a new Arrow story, Ten Lives.

Loved the fic!

Since my favorite torrent site went the way of the dodo a few months ago, I've mainly been using LJ comms for my viewing needs, with an added dash of Chrome and Hola to stream by proxy server and The Dare, which has pretty much everything.

Thank you!

Yes, hola has been a life saver. I hadn't seen Dare before though, thank you! This might actually be good for my tv habits as it forces me to let go of shows that aren't worth the effort.

Oooh, Paris! Nice!

I stockpiled all my shows, quite certain I would run out, and basically, I haven't really watched english speaking TV since a year ago with a few exceptions. Occasionally, I will hear of an episode I must see, and I use my American iTunes account to download. But the long and short of it all, I traded in TV fandom for football fandom, a thing which happens in my timezone! (and will be such a pain to follow once I switch back.)

That's definitely one way to do it! I've done okay so far using hola to get to hulu, but I will definitely be letting some shows I was only luke warm on fall to the side. Your way is probably a better way to adapt culturally and language wise, though.
