TV = BAD!

After a series of unfortunate “incidents” I feel it may once again be time for my t.v. to go bye-bye for a while. First, some history, a few years ago I went cold turkey for an entire year without the benefit/distraction of television. Then, my brother gave me a t.v. for Christmas, I made it yet another year without the wonders of cable television so I still didn’t watch much. Then, I moved and since I planned to no longer have a “land line” for phone service but still needed the marvel of the internets, I went ahead and splurged on cable, I tried basic cable for a while but, just like crack, I immediately needed more. I now find myself with the full digital cable regalia complete with multiple premium channels and an On Demand feature. Still, I need more. After a recent impromptu get-together at a friends new pad which included several episodes of Campus Ladies played back on her DVR, I now need to acquire DVR. Sadly, it was raining today when the cable guy arrived to install my DVR so you can understand his reluctancy to actually get our of his cable van and ring my doorbell, so I now need to re-schedule. This sent me into a near frenzy which made me actually want to quit cable altogether.

Then, this evening, after a long day at the tar pit, I came home, made myself a lovely sandwich and settled in for some “entertainment” which quickly led to an apoplectic fit as I channel surfed my way to “Breaking Up With Shannen Doherty.” What is it about t.v. “stars” of yore and their need to appear in increasingly more whore-ifying shows? Plus, this show is just plain creepy. Watch as Shannen leers at her guests. Tonight’s episode featured a babe who wanted to break up with her boyfriend so she could kiss girls (hmmmm. . .). Anyhew, after the whole set-up/breakup there is a re-cap scene at the end in which Shannen checks in with the breaker-upper three weeks later to see how things are working. And, what may you ask is our charming hostess wearing to interview our brand-spanking new baby dyke? A silk-f-ing kimono that appears to be open to the navel and held in place with some sort of adhesive. I’ve said it before (Bionic Woman) and I’ll say it again, WTF? Don’t even get me started on “Celebrity Fit Club” or “Being Bobby Brown.”

    I know! I caught a snippet of the Shannen Doherty show and I was horrified!!! Her skit was so damn short! Do we really need Shannen to facilitate our breakups?

    She gives Dohertys a bad name.
