well, because I love shows like Battlestar Galactica and Halo: Forward Unto Reach. If we can get quality shows like that, I'm all for it. A lot of the great shows lately have been made for relatively miniscule budgets and have redefined television. It's amazing that an episode of Battlestar Galactica is cheaper than a lazy 20 minute sitcom on CBS using jokes that have been repeated for the past fifty years.
And places like Netflix has redefined how we watch TV. Instead of releasing an episode a week, you can binge on an entire season in a weekend for even brand new shows that aren't available through traditional TV. Then again, if it's junk like that stupid show on Netflix... Can't remember its name. It was some kind of vampire versus wherewolf campy crap that made Twilight look like classical literature.
