Friday Five">Friday Five

1. How many TVs do you have in your home? – two, but one is unplugged and in storage
2. On average, how much TV do you watch in a week? – my guess: 20-25 hrs, way too much
3. Do you feel that television is bad for young children? – not if it’s turned off
4. What TV shows do you absolutely HAVE to watch, and if you miss them, you’re heartbroken? – mmm…Sopranos, L&O (all three), OZ, Six Feet Under, West Wing (though it’s fading fast). I don’t fret over missing an tv episode like I used to do. Life is short, get over it.
5. If you had the power to create your own television network, what would your line-up look like? – shows with creativity, ones that would survive w/o having to worry about ratings. Past examples: My so-called Life, EZ Streets, Gideon’s Crossing, Big Apple, Max Headroom…shows that were interesting but died too soon because ratings didn’t impress The Suits. Mix in some educational PBS-type stuff, bring back Tom Snyder to do a Late, Late Show, hire Charlie Rose away from PBS, bring back Dennis Miller and Bill Maher. Feature Michael Moore. Comedy with an edge, like MAD-TV, SNL (for old time’s sake), Monty Python, SCTV. Some baseball. Live music.

Then go turn off the tv and read a book or go for a bike ride or have coffee with friends.
