My best friend spent most of the day controlling my television, which can be one of the most boring things ever. While we have a lot in common, she has a penchant for watching reality TV that can be just painful. There’s only so many times I can watch the Real Housecats of San Bernadino before I want to claw my eyes out. It usually leaves me sitting around wondering when can we ever do something else.
Not that I do much other than watch TV when I’m alone. But I think that has a lot to do with my never getting to choose what’s on my television – like ever. When I do get to choose, it’s almost always something on one of the history channels. There’s this channel – the whole channel is like a train wreck. It’s the “wealth” channel on cable. I don’t know if you’ve watched it, but it often has programs like you’d find on the history channel – you know, when it still showed stuff about history instead of reality shows. Anyway, it had a show on about Roman history and I couldn’t stop myself from watching. I tried, but I couldn’t stop.
I’m a little dubious of their “sources” – it’s like facts had no bearing on the show.I’m not talking about little mixups, but mis-identifying emperors, or who built the Coliseum – you know, little things like that. They’re a TV show, they should check their facts – in my humble opinion. And where do they find their “academincs”? Seriously, who would hire these people? Sigh.
