There's always YouTube
Which is remarkable when you think about it. YouTube and other Internet video sites have made it possible to watch pretty much anything we want whenever we want, for only the price of a web connection. Sure, there are the occasional conniption fits, like when Buzzr tried - unsuccessfully, thank God - to shut down the What's My Line channel on YouTube. But endless hours of TV faves are there for the viewing.
Not to mention music for the listening. Once upon a time I had a record collection. (For younger readers, records were flat, round black things that you put on a turntable and they spun around.) Nowadays I've got the world's biggest rack of albums at YouTube. I've become so accustomed to such comforts that I whine to myself when a song gets pulled on a copyright complaint and I have to look for another video of it. There's just no satisfying grumpy me.
