Find me some good TV
Because I'm cheap, I'm dumping HBO, which costs me $13 a month. Problem is, without it, TV stinks. I'm down to watching reruns of The Unit and Shark, and Nip/Tuck has gone way past rational, into really really stoopid. The Shield and Mad Men havent started, I refuse to watch reality TV, which is pure crud. I dont care about obese people losing truckloads of fat or bad singers in Omaha. Havent watched Survivor since Johnny Fairplay, Amazing Race no longer amazes.
I need some new TV.
No sports, OK? I'm not one of those sports guys who thinks it's great to hunker down in front of the tube for exciting Big 12 action. If I watch more than 2 minutes of Around The Horn, check my brain for waves.
I watch Bourdain occasionally, but food doesnt thrill me. I watch the Wandering Golfer, but it makes me sick with jealousy. I even watch those find-a-house shows on Fine Living, but the Gen-X whiners tick me off. If you don't like the colors in the bedroom, paint it, OK?
I'm even tired of my guy Bear Grylls, since I read some of his stuff is staged and he spends many nights in hotels. Plus, how many times can you see him eat a bug for protein and make that goofy face?
I got a few suggestions from radio callers last night, something about a guy with an incurable disease selling crack or meth or something to provide for his family after he's gone, some other show about a British guy who bumps his head or some such and travels back in time to 1973. What?
None of it sounded all that great.
I need your help. Thanks and a tip of the Keystone Light.
