Television shows to borrow

Buying television programs on DVD or renting them disc-by-disc often costs about the same amount, and the latter leaves you with discs to lend to others. If someone I know in Ottawa wants to borrow one of these, they should let me know:

  • Blue Planet
  • House, Season I
  • House, Season II
  • House, Season III
  • Invader Zim, Season I
  • Invader Zim, Season II
  • Planet Earth
  • The Sopranos, Season I
  • The Sopranos, Season II
  • The Wire, Season I

I would be especially keen to make a temporary exchange with someone who has the second season of Rome, or any subsequent season of The Wire or The Sopranos.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. It’s harsh to condemn a whole medium that way.

    When they first emerged, a lot of people thought that novels were frivolous or intellectually harmful.

  2. I think commercials and sitcoms are a kind of junk food for your brain, but some television shows are quite good. The Discovery channel, and some of the better HBO shows are pretty hard to beat. Rome and Deadwood are especially great.

    Plus, movies can be just as mind-decaying. Watching ‘Legally Blonde’, or ‘Paycheck’ is the brain-nourishing equivalent of sitting down and dedicating yourself to eating a giant sized pack of pork rinds and a salad bowl of jelly-beans.

    I dislike television, but TV on DVD is one of America’s finest achievements, goddammit.

  3. For what it’s worth, I think The Wire is a great achievement, the best show I’ve ever seen.

  4. The Wire is quite good, and interesting from a security perspective. The operational security within the Barksdale gang is one of the more interesting elements of the first season.

  5. Operations security
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Operations security (OPSEC) is a process that identifies critical information to determine if friendly actions can be observed by adversary intelligence systems, determines if information obtained by adversaries could be interpreted to be useful to them, and then executes selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of friendly critical information.
