Who said TV was bad?
Well, whoever you are…you obviously haven’t had the week I’ve had.
Frankly, TV can rock. And here’s some reasons why:
Without television…I would never have been able to sit back and enjoy the thrill of introducing my little tikes to The Sound of Music. “Brace yourself kids,” I said, tucking us all up under my favourite funky doona in preparation for their first ever viewing of my all-time favourite childhood movie, “this is a momumentous occasion.” And aside from flashing back to my bitter disappointment at Julie Andrews’ failure to reply to an impassioned fan letter, it was.
Without television…I would never have been able to sit back and enjoy my latest (and late!) comedic discovery of Wallace and Gromet. The “Were-Rabbit” movie aroused a chortle factor of ‘serious’, just as the first half of this sentence aroused a tosser factor of ‘beyond help’.
And finally, without television…the low-cost babysitter would be but a myth.
