Out of the Blue

I recently did a little achievement hunting in Portal 2. One of them involves refusing to solve a puzzle, but there was no indication of how long this refusal would take. I eventually just left my computer on all night, and the next day, the achievement was still not triggered. I eventually figured out what I was doing wrong, but now my time played on the game shows 12 or more hours of zombie time. Oh well, I guess that counts on some level, though I'd prefer if that figure reflected actual play time.

To be fair, Stargate Universe and Battlestar Galactica weren't Network TV. They were cable TV, a different animal. And Dexter is premium cable.


Other than that technicality, I agree with your overall sentiment. It's sometimes worth waiting a couple of seasons before you get into a show via Netflix or reruns. But even then you wind up with a failed finale.

Not that premium channels are any better about it; i canceled my HBO over deadwood. that still pisses me off to no end.
