I love certain shows-I enjoy Big Brother 6 and I do watch some programs on PBS and I do enjoy the evening news. At the same time, I get so tired at times of the kids wanting to watch t.v. ALL THE TIME. I know I watched my fair share of t.v. as a kid and still read the news magazines and what not, but I just get annoyed at this!. I've seriously contemplated unhooking the t.v. and carrying it down to the basement. I'm not against all forms of escapism, but this one just really gets to me from time to time. I have some friends who have their home a t.v. free environment. I also have a relative who has four television sets in the house. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!. Do you choose not to have a t.v.? Why or why not? Would you take out the t.v. from your home? Anyone else similarly disgruntled with t.v. or do I just need to get out more?
