The main reason I despise Jordanian internet is because of the ISP’s “Bandwith” limit >_>. Seriously, you can only stream so much information online, before your speed drops to a lousy 128 Kb/s. I pay 50 JD’s worth of Orange Internet and get a measly 24 GB of limit, ugh! Soon thereafter, it takes me a few hours to download a PDF file.
Anyway, that’s not today’s topic, because if I wish to discuss Orange and their internet services I’m going to end up bad mouthing a lot of people. A LOT of people 🙂 so let’s stick to this post’s topic. The main reason I use up so much bandwith is because I tend to stream a lot of online TV series. Mostly comedies but anything that’s good enough to watch I stream online. [No, Grey’s Anatomy is not even close to a good TV series]
What I noticed was that every new TV series I start watching [The latest one being Greek. If anyone’s seen that please share your opinion on it, I’m still on episode 4 of the first season, should I continue ?], the first episode is always called “Pilot”. I’m a picky person when it comes to knowing stuff, and usually [ask Yameen], I end up surfing online for hours trying to get every single bit of info about what I want, and talk to her about it for another few hours. [Usually she ends up screaming at me to SHUT UP! :P]…Ahh, good times.
Anyhooters, does anyone know why the first episode of every TV series is called “Pilot” ?
P.S. : I now know the answer after getting 20 responses within the first 10 minutes of asking the question on Yahoo Answers, but still, it’s fun to see if you guys think this topic is anywhere near interesting :). I’ll post the answer up later when I get some responses to this post.
