TV Eye

Will you all just shut up about Breaking Bad already?

I don’t understand why you people keep getting hooked on television shows. I mean television shows? After all these years you still get sucked into that? Sometimes you all get together and waste an hour talking about television shows when you’re not even watching them. Nothing ruins a party like a bunch of people babbling about TV. It seems like a ridiculous waste of whatever time you have left on the planet. I mean there’s nothing wrong with television, I watch television, but it seems weird to base so much of your week around what shows you’re gonna watch, and caring so much about fictional characters. That seems so completely weird to me. I have absolutely no idea what I will watch tomorrow, or the day after, or ever. I don’t plan for television time. I never have. Ever. If there’s a good movie or a hockey game or a great documentary I’ll watch it, maybe. But it’s all spur of the moment. I would never set aside time to watch Dexter or Mad Men or whatever on a weekly basis.. You know you’ve been suckered by a television network when you do that. You know they’ve got you pegged. And they know you’ll be buying something you saw during the commercials. You say you won’t, but you will. It’s not like you have a choice. They figured that out too.

So here’s an idea…..if there’s a television series on, and you find yourself watching three or four episodes in a row, it’s time to stop watching it. You’ll live.
