I have become quite bored with the TV we watch. Of course, this is our fault. Well, no. It’s Mr Furlong’s fault!
We have got stuck in a rut of watching stuff on Cable TV (in the UK, that’s Sky). There is a preponderance of Misery-fests and violence. Well – Mr Furlong seems to like them. But some of the stuff on ordinary TV, is just as bad.
Mr Furlong and I have similar tastes in many things – but not so much for TV. He is a real gentleman and often watches what I like, without complaint. I like documentaries, history, factual programs. Or something uplifting.
We tape a lot of shows to watch later – and Sunday night on TV, there is a cluster of good stuff all on top of each other – too much even to tape. What the hell is wrong with the schedule that we are offered worthwhile shows on a Sunday night, and starved on Saturdays!
And there is SO MUCH misery-fest and violence-fests in TV culture nowadays……
