I love television. A lot of people do . . . I'm pretty sure I'm not a minority on this.
When I was growing up my father constantly told my siblings and I that "it turns your brain to mush". Consequently, we were never allowed to watch it on school nights. We didn't even have cable (no, this is not considered child abuse, I checked), so when my friends at school were talking about the latest episode of "Doug" or "Ren and Stimpy", I was trying to strike up a conversation about a re-run of "Mr. Belvedere" . . . a show that, apparently, no one my age has ever heard of . . . probably because they had cable. ( Did I mention I went to a private school with a bunch of rich kids)
Sometimes I think the TV deprivation I suffered through as a child has made me hopelessly addicted to it. My vice is sitcoms. I love them most of all. I like the old ones, the new ones . . . sometimes I even watch the bad ones (mostly to make fun of them).
When I was little I was a huge fan of "Gilligan's Island", (the aforementioned) "Mr. Belvedere", "I Love Lucy", and many others, I can't seem to think of at the moment.
Then when I was in my tweens I became addicted to Nick at Nite (probably because we finally got a satellite dish, thanks to my big brother). I watched "Newhart", " The Bob Newhart show", "Rhoda", "The Dick Van Dyke Show", "Happy Days" . . . the list goes on.
Finally, as I got older, I loved the shows most people loved: "Seinfeld", "Friends" . . . hmm, those are the only ones that come to mind at the moment.
Nowadays I watch "The Office", "Community", "Parks and Recreation" ( I know a lot of people don't like this one, but I think you should give it a chance), and "How I Met Your Mother".
So here we are, Myself, and a few other bloggers who also love Television have decided to write down our thoughts on episodes of different shows . . . some old . . . some new . . . whatever we feel like really.
We hope you enjoy it, tell your friends about it, tell strangers about it and so on and so on . . .
