I love really bad TV

I often get up earlier than Oscar. Especially when we hit the sack around 11 p.m. I rarely sleep more than 7 hours, so on those occasions I am usually up (and rested) by 6 a.m.
We have a small house, so noise travels pretty easily. So those early mornings have been kind of quiet and a bit boring until recently.
For Christmas, we each got a set of headphones. Now I can knit while watching bad TV on Hulu.com.
This morning, I discovered 'Cleopatra 2525'.
It has to have one of the, uh, most striking theme songs I've ever heard
The theme song is based on a pretty good hit from the 60's
In the Year 2525 by Zager and Evans
But when they used it for the Cleopatra 2525 theme song.. well. Let's just say they changed it up a bit.

I don't quite remember what I was doing in 2000 to have missed it the first time around, but I am enjoying the show immensely so far. (Of course I've only been watching about 10 minutes).
One of the actors is Gina Torres (Zoe from Firefly). I wonder who else I'll spot?
It's pretty easy to make me happy, I guess.
Bad TV. It's a lot like Saturday morning cartoons for my age group, only with hulu, I can create my own ever changing lineup.

I think you only need to worry when you can quote all the lines along with the actors ;-)

Headphones! Now that was a great idea for you two! So glad you're enjoying your early time alone--knitting and watching!!!
