Hi,

This afternoon talking with colleagues I found I was one of the few that didn't have a tv at home.

So what about you fellows a.neters.

Do you watch tv ?

Bye

Unfortunately for me I only get one TV channel as I haven't subscribed to any Canadian cable/satellite networks and my aerial is shit.

I therefore, do not watch TV much at all, maybe one hour per week. I find reading or listening to the radio to be better anyway!

I say I don't watch TV, but I am addicted to Amazing Race. Other than that, I own a TV to watch DVDs. I am going to get Phantom Of The Opera right now and, while I am there, I may also get either Flintstones first season or Aqua Teen Hunger Force second season (I already have ATHF seasons 1 and 3)

GO CANUCKS!!

I do watch TV, but not as often as I used to. Mainly thanks to all of the crap that's being showed nowadays. When I watch TV, then it's usually only for football games or occasionally the news.

The last time I watched TV on a regular basis was around 1987 or 1988.
I did watch the first 2 seasons of In Living Color (1990-1991) but that was it.
I do have 2 VCRs and a DVD player to watch old movies, concert footage, porn, home made flicks.

TV today sucks big time.
If I am at someone's house that has cable, I'd only watch CNN, CSPAN, CSPAN2, Discovery Channel and PBS.

I cannot say that I don't watch TV.... but I rarely do just that.

The TV displays the news for hours on end when I'm at home, but I'm usually cooking, working, online, cleaning, or doing whatever else in the process.


Pretty much the only time I devote 100% to TV is when new episodes of Will&Grace, Law&Order, or CSI Miami (and its incredibly sexy Papi!) are on.

Ah, how we forget . . .

The last time I chatted with you (months ago) you dropped off-line mid sentence because an episode of some Anime Cartoon came on the air. Later, I heard you were glued to Drawn Together.

Come on, fess up. You're watching soaps right now, arent' you.  Smile

I watch TV quite regularly, but prefer to watch educational channels such as Discovery, National Geographic and History channel. I refuse to give the time of day to trash (in my humble opinion, of course) like Smallville, Desperate Housewives, etc. I do make an exception for Lost, though, as well as for for Formula 1. So, in a nutshell, documentary programs for me all the way!

Which hasn't had a new episode in like 6mo. Old news, lol.

No, but I have started watching A&E (which is just as pathetic) now that they feature Adam Rodriguez's ass every Sunday night at 10 and 2 Big grin

I meant "chat" in the literal sense ... no numbers are/were required. Or have you lost my screen name too?

Very little time for TV, but on an occasion I try to catch a few shows, namely on PBS, A&E, Disc, TLC, Hist, SciFi and others. The main broadcasters (ABC,CBS,NBC,FOX,UPN and WB) offer absouletly nothing, imo.

I prefer a good book.

I did not have a TV growing up. I found myself explaining to peers about the ‘Kill Your TV’ bumper sticker on the back of my dad’s Volvo.

Now I have a 42” Plasma but just keep it on CNN and C-SPAN as background noise. Occasionally, I watch Discovery and DVDs.

No, but I'm practically never on AIM/YIM/etc anymore, since I still cannot get online at home currently.

Well cher, in case ya haven't noticed in the year or so since we've been acquainted: I love to argue.  Wink

....and I'll be damned before I pay 2 squirts of duck sh!t to those extortionists at Cox, over a service-halt that I have in writing that I shouldn't have been subjected to.

I don't watch much TV. I'd rather read, or go out and do something.

Mr. Harlot loves TV, and it frustrates me sometimes. I like the house to be quiet, and then he gets home and the boob tube goes on and blares. I hate it.



But that was when I ruled the world
