just like linda says...

it's like they (tv show writers) know what we want and they just give it to us.

so i was thinking about just how good tv is the other day and the nature of the addiction... was tv always this good? was i always so addicted?

the answer is undoubtedly yes - but is it really such a bad thing? dont be so stupid, stupid!

shows like Jem and the holograms, fraggle rock, and thundercats instilled us with the social values and mores and shepparded us through out formative years. Not to be outdone, superbe programing like whos the boss? charles in charge, and blossom provided a stern warning of anti-social behavior (its a british phrase that basically means doing drugs, being pregnant, listening to rap music, etc) while educating us on basic social etiquette. As teenagers, naturally, it was the Grind that captured our attention.

but what about now? its funny how certain tv shows are hallmarks of life eras. will i ever see seventh heaven again without thinking of it in french? or see an episode of dr who and not think of a rainy english afternoon spent trying to avoid thesis writing? and the price is right defines my undergraduate degree.

point being, yes i may spend some time shoving craisans in my face watching tiara girls, little people, big world, big love, seinfeld, top chef, americas next top model, the real world and any show on the food network - especially those about catering a wedding - but on the eve of adulthood, it is the nanny and golden girls that will see me to my mid-twenties and beyond...

"the eve of adulthood?!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

are you joking? You're 23...almost 24. You've been of legal age for 6 years...able to legally consume in the U.S. for 3 years. Your adultness is well under way.

Get back to work.
