Not nice CBS

You did it to me again CBS. I missed Person of Interest on Thursday and well I can watch it on line. Turns out I couldn't. They only have highlights and not full episodes. I got burned before in a similar way Two Broke Girls. Really hate it when I have to check in advance to see if they have full episodes and then try to do something else. Such a popular and good show should have full episodes online for when people miss an episode.

I wish the show was on CBS online. For many years The Amazing Race wasn't on CBS online, so I would end up missing part of the episode because of football, so understand why you feel burned. Its hard to figure out what happened when I would miss the beginning. I hope the episode airs again when the show airs reruns, as it was a good one called Triggerman. The clip online was a good clip and would have made me interested in watch. If I find it anywhere online I'll let you know, but so far I know its not at Hulu.

Right. Person of Interest is one of the shows CBS does not air online episodes. That is one of the reasons I stopped watching it because if I missed an episode which I often did, I could not pick it up online. Another reason was that I got bored with it since they weren't spending enough time dealing with the machine and that mystery and were instead spending too much time on the prevention of the crime part. It bothered me that even though they said they were trying to prevent someone getting killed, it always seemed like they ended up killing others getting in the way of protecting the one they were protecting. Kind of lame for my tastes. I guess if you have a DVR or DVD you could set the timer to record the episode so that if you miss it, you can still watch it later.

Haha, I'm sorry. I meant DVR or VCR. I messed that one up.

I have a vcr but the finding the time to watch it later before needing to record something else is the problem. To do it I have to stay up an hour later to watch it on the same night and I don't like to do that so often.

Yeh that can be a problem, no doubt. However, if you can find the time to go to CBS to watch it the next day, could you not also do the same with the VCR copy?

What happened to interrupt the program?

I was watching something else. I really like Person of Interest but Beauty and the Beast with Kristin Kreuk is on at the same time and I will choose Kristin every time.

Beauty and the Beast is online at the CW Site. Right now, I'm getting ready to watch it, as it should make a full season, as CW has other nights of the week with serious ratings problems.

That's what I do when there are conflicting shows. In fact, almost all the shows I watch are online rather than on the television because then I can watch at my schedule instead of theirs. But many of my favorites are on at the same time and conflict with each other. So if I find that any of them do not air online the next day or 8 days later as with the Fox shows, I will save the ones that are online for later and watch only the ones I can't find online at the time they are on television. It makes it a lot easier to choose. Plus I have DVR service so I can record one while watching another.
