I watch TV while knitting, I feel so productive to be churning out sock after sock while others just stare at a screen. Today I tried listening to one of my audio books but I've trained myself to fall asleep to spoken words so I promptly felt drowsy when Jack moved in next to me for his nap. I did hit the nap trifecta there, someone talking to me, nice blanket and warm kitty fur. To be honest I am a little amazed that I am awake now.
Anyways back to TV, I am totally frustrated because all the show cancellations came out this week. Seems like many of the ones that I like were on the axed list. The worst cancellation in my opinion being Human Target. I did so love that show. The worst part of churning is that there is no closure. I think they should be forced to do a wrap up show that sends the characters off in to the happy Hollywood sunset.
So in protest (I'm sure the networks will notice) I have started watching old TV shows. No room for cancellation since they have already had their run. I am currently working my way through Murder She Wrote. How did I miss watching this one? Oh right I was too young for murders. It makes me twitch when I hear people say something like I would move from any town like Cabot Cove that had that many murders. Mrs Fletcher traveled a lot so many of the murders did not occur in the town. Of the 50 or so episodes I've watched less than 10 of them have been in town. I know I have weird pet peeves.
I added Magnum PI to my netflix queue also. One thing I have learned so far is that nothing dates a show like computers, cars or glasses. Well at least those are the big three that I notice most. Oh wait airlines date them too, I saw an episode where they were flying PanAm. Oh and you don't see as many story lines that use defection as a plot tool either.
So that is what I am watching I will catch up to you all in a few decades. Any recommendations for time warp TV?
