I do not dv-r anything. I would feel pressure to watch the things I recorded, and I do not need any more pressure. Instead I enjoy channel surfing and stumbling upon things that I would never set out to watch. Pawn Stars is boring, yet when my husband settles on that channel I find myself interested. Unwrapped is geeky, but I find myself fascinated by how all this fun food is produced. Who knew that five gajillion gummies roll out of the Acme plant every stinkin' day? Hoarders is disturbing but watching it makes me realize that my junk drawer hoarding isn't so bad after all. I never get sick of Seinfeld, The Office, or Everybody Loves Raymond reruns, and I can almost always find one of those shows on some channel somewhere. 'Guilty pleasure: the Housewives reality shows and their shallow selfish characters. Television is an escape for me, and I tend to watch it from my bed during the hour or so before I fall asleep. I do not want anything heavy such as doomsday shows and crime shows. Entertain me. Make me laugh.
Modern Family is indeed entertaining and even thought-provoking as it breezes through each episode. It is the only thirty minutes a week that I make sure I am watching.
