I live a relatively sedate life.
I work and I come homeâ€¦ as for entertainment, I spend time with my wife, write stories that will probably never get published (until I dieâ€¦ we are all famous when we are dead.) and write in my Blogâ€¦ among other things.
I restrict myself to a few shows on TV a week. This does not count things like news programs, and the occasional show on the History Channel or the other various educational programs out there. That being said, here is the way my viewing habits used to be:
News. (MSN and Fox)
Now the networks have gone and released a few new showsâ€¦ and, to my utter amazement and spectacular dismay, I like them. I now have two more shows to add to my listâ€¦
My Name is Earl
Keep in mind, and I am a person that does not typically enjoy TVâ€¦ It is the single most destructive thing in your house since TV Dinners, Microwaves and Jazzercise. I have seen my wifeâ€¦ these shows have a brainwashing affect on people, and I see the glazed look in her eyes while Law and Order, Criminal Minds or CSI are on. I could yell â€œFire!!!â€ and get little or no response until the next commercial.
I feel that if the networks continue to put more shows I like on the air, then I might, alas, finally succumb to the evil plans of the network leadership, and fall into the abyss that isâ€¦ dare I sayâ€¦ the black hole of television dementia.
For nowâ€¦ I will continue to write my stories and curse you all with my Blogs and attempt to maintain my personal thoughtsâ€¦ but I may not last longâ€¦ I feel the TV calling me.
