Countdown to LOST!!! Season 5 - Page 3

post #41 of 1109
Does anyone think Ben is hot? You know, in a weird, bug-eyed, I might kill you in your sleep kind of way?


Am I the only one?

You're not alone! I also think he's hot, but totally untrustworthy.

What we've been doing on Lost nights is turning off the satellite and just watching it on our local channel. Guess I'll have to pay the extra fee if I want to see it.
This is not necessarily true re: antenna. Unfortunately, DH is the one who understands this stuff not me. However, we do not have cable -- we only use an antenna (which DH built) and we get over the air HD channels. If your television is capable of playing a digital signal, you should still be able to watch with your antenna.

Our local stations have been doing tests (usually late at night, like during the 11:00 news) where they shut off the regular signal. If your local station is running that kind of test, you could shut off your satellite and see if you still get the station just with your antenna.

Apparently another part of this whole changeover process is that some channels will be transmitted on a different band than they were before. This could affect your ability to get the station, depending on which way your antenna has to be facing to pick up the signal.

Even if your TV can not play a digital signal, you can get a converter box. The Federal government (maybe the FCC, not sure) was providing rebates to people to subsidize the purchase of the box. I don't know if the rebates are still available or how to go about getting one. If you hook an antenna to the converter box and the box to your tv, I believe you would still be able to use the antenna without subscribing to anything else.

My husband is a techie geek and has been telling me all about this stuff for over a year. Mostly, I don't have a clue what he is saying. But what is in this post is what sunk in, lol!

Not the only one. I'd take my chances. But I go for slightly out of the ordinary looking men. I'd take Ben over Jack, for sure.

Yes, his accent and eyes are very sexy but the exclusive tank top wardrobe and excessive sweat have to go.

DH and I watched every minute of the series on abc between last season and now. We've never seen it on TV and we're sooooo excited!

11 DAYS TO GO!!!!

I started re-watching season 4 online last night. So much I forgot that happened! It makes me even more excited now for season 5 though. I'll be filling the next 10 days with repeats. =)

Just jumping in! I'm new to MDC and excited to see a thread devoted to Lost. I have no one IRL to discuss the show with because they all seemed to have lost interest. But thankfully I wandered upon this thread : I'll also be watching on ABC tomorrow since we've done away with our TV. The suspense is killing me!
post #59 of 1109
We've done w/o cable so I have to wait too Even sadder since I'm in Canada I can't get it off of abc.com...dh has to download it elsewhere

Don't know what im more excited for..the actual show or for dh to stop whining that there's no lost! LOL
