A little over a year ago, we got rid of the Dish. At the time, I was merely trying to save a little money. Wait, check that, A-LOT of money. We haven’t missed watching TV. Football season poses a set of challenges for me, but free over the air TV and good friends gets me through it. Anyway, last night, after watching the Titans lose, I got busy doing stuff on my laptop, and left the TV on. Yikes. I’m not sure what program followed the game, in part because I was preoccupied, but mostly because it seemed like a couple of hours of campaign ads. Ridiculous, over the top, dishonest, moronic campaign ads. (Jim Cooper’s was cute, but in a way that gets irritating after the first 200 viewings)
I climbed into bed and a promo came on telling me to stay tuned for CSI Miami. I thought it might be fun to watch a little of it before turning out the light, so I fluffed my pillow, grabbed the remote, and turned the volume to where I could hear it. WHAT A TRAIN WRECK. Stupidest plot ever, which made the overwrought acting really stand out. In between scenes, I was treated to more of the same political ads.
People still pay for this?
