Weeds + Twilight + PJs + Couch = FREE Showtime Preview This Weekend!

In case you all thought I had some sort of ragingly awesome social life here in Chicago, I’d like to take this time to debunk that myth.

This weekend I do not plan to leave my couch.  While this is usually my goal, I plan on making this goal a reality because this is a very special weekend.  It’s the Showtime Free Preview Weekend!!!!

We used to get Showtime, but now we do not, which means I have exactly four days to catch up on Season 6 of Weeds.  {Yes – OnDemand is included in the preview!}  And tomorrow night at 8 p.m. is the television premiere of New Moon!  New Moon is easily the worst of the Twilight series, but that doesn’t mean I won’t tune in – free is free!

Click here to check out the schedule for Showtime’s Free Preview Weekend.  In addition to the laziest I’ve already shared with you there are some other good movies and the premieres of many new TV shows that I might have to check out, including William H. Macy’s new show Shameless.  This only means that when the preview ends Monday night I will spend all of Tuesday trying to convince the boyfriend that we absolutely must have Showtime.

Even the free premium tv, friends!
