As more of a lurker on the SDMB I just wanted to thank the fine dopers for some great recommendations I get from Cafe Society. A couple quick examples that caused me to open this thread.
Several months ago there was a discussion on song covers and someone recommended the podcast Coverville. I’ve never looked back and it is now my favourite podcast.
I don’t have cable or watch TV too much. It’s the threads here that got me hooked on Heroes and checking out the online graphic novels
I was also quite clueless whenever anybody mentioned Joss Whedon. I rented Serenity a couple months back and really enjoyed it and just recently picked up the entire Firefly series. I quite enjoy it even if the spoken chinese is so horrendous that my wife couldn’t understand it (she’s Tawainese). She actually watched and enjoyed a couple shows with me and Sci-Fi is definitely not her cup of tea.
