Catching up

I've got a whole season of Battlestar Galactica to catch up on. I thought I had another week, oops. I don't think I'm going to make it in time to see the finale when it airs. Faking sick and watching the marathon on the Sci-fi channel isn't an option. Well it might have been until I jokingly brought it up at work today. Now I can't *actually* do that. Stupid responsibility *grumble* *grumble*.

Oh well, that's what my trusty VCR is for. That's right, I rock it old school with VHS tapes. I even know how to work the damn thing and set it up for pre-programed record. It's a good thing I already have part of the beginning of the season since the marathon is starting somewhere around episode 4. It's also a good thing that the last few episodes are available online since the tape isn't long enough to record all of the episodes.

So my evil plan:
When I get home I watch the first half of the season that I already have recorded (I've been planning ahead for this marathon). I get as far as I can before I pass out decide to go to bed.
I stick my fingers in my ears and repeat over and over again, "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!" so as not to be spoiled. This will be made easier since no one else in the house watches the show. I will also avoid reading stuff online to spare myself the spoilers. (note: this step may be harder as I am hopelessly addicted to my e-mail and LJ. I guess it's a good thing I'm not into twitter yet)
I spend all day Saturday camped in front of my TV or computer watching through the end of BSG.
Then I resume life as normal (wall, as normal as it gets)

I may have to take a break Friday evening for Dollhouse. Hmm, I think I still have some logistical kinks to work out. This may be cumbersome but at least I spared myself the agony/annoyance of waiting week to week. I much prefer to marathon through a series.
