My Secret Shame: Taking The Geek In Me To New Lows/Heights?

I’m hoping I’m not the only one who does this.

Let me start by saying that we don’t have cable, we also don’t have Netflix. So I rely on my DVD collection, my Dad’s DVD collection, the library and various friends for most of my viewing needs. I watch things many times over and stagger them every few years, so that everything is fresh. I’m a creature of habit and I like what I like. I also like re-watching old shows. I recently started watching The X-f-Files from the beginning again. A little dated in places but so pioneering. In retrospect you can point to so many modern shows and date the formula back to The X-Files. Last night I started watching season seven of Buffy The Vampire Slayer again, I had an urge to watch The First in action, plus, who else has wondered if they might be a potential. I know I’m 30 but it could still happen right?

So I’m really hoping I’m not the only one who does this. My secret shame is Wikipedia. After giving my memory a bashing last night for not remembering certain story lines, I went straight to Wikipedia this morning, to read a breakdown of each episode of Buffy Season 6. I recently relived Dawson’s Creek this way – don’t judge me. I really do need to watch Firefly before I am tempted to just read about it.

Am I the only one with a Wikipedia episode listing fetish?
