I wanna watch a wonderful show!
Since I became a blogger and the kids all moved out, I've been so busy blogging my heart out and playing computer solitaire that I keep forgetting to have a social life. But not to worry. The television has become my new best friend! When I missed an episode of "Men in Trees" the other day, I was really upset!
"But George," I e-mailed my friend back, "I can't afford cable and Battlestar Gallactica is on the sci-fi channel." Maybe the CW will start showing re-runs at 3 am? Maybe someone will download it to YouTube?
That sounds like something I don't need to watch on the Sci-Fi channel. For that kind of entertainment, I can just turn on the evening news.
But speaking of The Future and sci-fi and all that, everyone in the world seems to be stolidly ignoring the biggest question facing Mankind. "What happens next?"
Aha. That's an easy answer. That's why we have Jericho, The Survivor and Lost! It's a sad commentary on America's ability to think ahead that the only people who are actively addressing these problems today are television producers!
Guess I'd better start taking notes.
