Getting gifts and spending time with family is cool and everything, but one of the things we’ve always hated about Christmas is the sheer amount of nothingness that’s on television. Thankfully Microsoft is offering up discounted seasons of the most popular television shows in Zune Marketplace.

What’s available? Try S0uth Park: Year of the Fan for 1,200 Microsoft Points, Battlestar Galactica  for 2,400 Microsoft Points, The Boondocks for 1,200 Microsoft Points, Firefly for 1,200 Microsoft Points, as well as slight discounts on entire seasons of Friday Night Lights, The Ren & Stimpy  Show, Hey Arnold!, Swamp People, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Friends Arrested Development, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, Rosewell, and Sherlock.

Go and get it folks, the Television Entertainment Drought of 2011 is only half over.
