Even though keeping up with US shows while living in Thailand is tough, I do my best to watch the go shows when they come out on DVDs. The Emmy Awards are a great opportunity to note the shows that were nominated so that when you visit MBK in Bangkok you know what shows to ask for. It’s the best way for expats to keep up with American culture and watching those DVDs are a cheap way to entertain yourself.
