I think I’d be happier if I hadn’t had a TV for the past decade.

I only watch the best movies-—and some, you have to admit are great.
Watch this one-—you’ll love it. And it is one worth every minute of your time.

Five years ago (or longer) I quit getting cable and even don’t have an antenna on my TV—so get nothing. But I can buy “24” or shows which people do highly recommend. But even some of those—like Bones—bores me. Internet is much more fun.

It is the only way to live—control what you see—don’t let them force feed you their cr*p-—I could never watch commercials again and waste so much of my time. Never did watch a lot of TV in my life. Most shows insulted my intelligence and morality anyhow.
