Guilty (campy) pleasures

I have to confess that, although we haven’t watched broadcast or cable TV in years, TV was a big part of my life until pretty recently. Now, we watch DVDs we own or get from Netflix. But Netflix also offers some of their content to watch online. And we’ve been enjoying Hercules: the Legendary Journeys and Xena: the Warrior Princess.

The acting is, ahem, rough, shall we say? and the action and stunts are still a lot of fun. I like the low-budget sets and costumes, and the occasional oopses. And we just noticed the disclaimers in the credits: “No males, centaurs or amazons were harmed in the filming of this motion picture” was in Hooved & Harlots, for example.

It does make me pine for a better AV setup, and some home theater PC solution. But we make do.
