Our reasoning was two-fold - we weren't watching much TV, and it was costing too much for something we weren't using.
Our evenings have since become pretty productive.
We have been indulging in fairly regular movie nights though - but only after the dinner clean-up is done, any errands are run, bills are paid, laundry is done, etc. during the week. And we're watching movies we already own.
And because we start the movies later into the evening, after all the 'work' is done, each movie has been lasting us two nights. So it may just take us until Halloween itself to finish the boxed set of horror classics we've been making our way through this week and last!
Tonight is the conclusion of 'The Terror' with a 26-year old Jack Nicholson (!).
Pass the popcorn :)
