Making a Difference by watching TV

TV is suddenly better than movies. It used to suck. I refused to watch “Friends” and all those other 20-something shows that all looked the same. But then came Alias, Heros, and of course, Lost. And TV was cool again.

tv familyWe don’t regret giving our TV away because we dont have room for it as we travel the world. But we do download “Lost” each week and watch it religiously on our computer, no matter where we are. TV is better than movies because there is more time for the plot to complicate and deepen. And I like the discipline of having to wait until next week for the next episode.  

My friend, Bob Beltz recommends a new TV show airing this Friday called “Making A Difference”. Some of his mates were involved in making it. He writes about it in his column as well as why he thinks people should start watching TV again. See Making a Difference in the Media, Pt. 6

Also, Paul Lauer recommends the Friday night airing of Secrets of the Mountain as part of a move towards Family TV
