Yes Biggie, they are lovely things. Fucking expensive to keep though. I lost the REALLY destructive girl a couple of years ago (I'm still gutted) but the boy is still around and has finally chewed his way through the leather sofa.

My living room currently looks like those news pictures of Mosul once ISIS fucked off.

Re: Watching Netflix on an old CRT
paid nothing for this Panasonic EDTV - from some posh bloke in Henley on Thames

think my winning bid on eBay was 99p - but he was too proud to accept it

takes two men to move

but it's the only thing worth playing old games consoles on

Re: Watching Netflix on an old CRT
I remember getting only the second widescreen TV I'd ever seen after my pal bought the first. Actually I'd seen one years before when I was delivering to Walt Disney's offices when they were in Soho Square and it had stopped me dead in my tracks. I'd never seen such a beautiful bit of tech. A telly the same shape as a cinema screen! At home!

So I bought the most MASSIVE TV I'd ever seen. A Philips. It was so big my pals used to say 'fucking hell, what's that thing? You've nicked Camden Odeon!' and stuff like that. EVERYONE who ever came into the house commented on it- some were a bit sniffy as you could tell they thought it ostentatious and 'Cockney'.

How big was it? THIRTY-TWO INCHES! So big that people used to pile round to mine for football matches in the World Cup and Euros.

When I look at a 32 inch screen on a modern telly it makes me laugh how small they are. My CRT had a footprint that halved my living-room space!

It was a nightmare being an early adopter as for about the first three years the screen ratio would change every time a different program came on and two or three times during adverts. Used to drive me mad.

My cats used the back as a springboard to get up onto the top of my bookcases so they could look down on the room. Used to sit up there for hours.

The day I was finally shot of the monster telly I put the new, slim, lovely £1200 Panasonic plasma on the wall and recalaimed my living space.

I was sitting watching the boxing with a beer in my hand that night thinking 'ah, this is lovely' when my big, clumsy brute of a Bengal cat decided he was going to get on top of the new telly to launch himself onto the bookshelf, jumped up, missed his footing so just his front legs hooked over the back of the TV and then used his rear claws to scratch his way up the screen to the top.

£1200 telly utterly fucked. I'd had it about eight hours. I nearly started crying...

Ahhh, is it? I'd love to watch it again. Series 4 was my favourite but it's all good

Re: Watching Netflix on an old CRT
I once had to get a 32" CRT telling down three flights of stairs and into my car. Was one of the hardest things I've ever done!

Re: Watching Netflix on an old CRT
Those old CRT's are also good for watching Pathe News, just before the test card comes up.
