I love TV

There’s FRIENDS from 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM.

Then there’s House M.D from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

And what does one watch?

Though one likes FRIENDS way better than anything else, one still chooses to watch House M.D for the sole reason that it can keep one occupied for 30 minutes more. And there are no words to express one’s irritation and anger to know that regular programming on Star World from 8:00 PM onwards will be on hold to show the American Music Awards!

When life suddenly revolves around a remote control and a reminder-enabled DTH system (called Tata Sky), it’s freakworthy, isn’t it?

Boredom is an understatement. So is laziness.

And ofcourse, thank God for the miracle of television.

I have a backlog of unanswered comments – please bear with me for a while longer till I find it in me to get off the bean bag and actually get some work done around the place. And no, the TV doesn’t help one bit. It never did.

  1. i hear ya! those damn american music awards ruined one of my sundays recently. they cancelled desperate housewives and brothers and sisters!

    oh and when one is faced with the horror of choosing between two of one’s fav shows one usually goes with the longer one, as long as the short one is also available online later. and dont switch between the two when commercials are on. it just ruins it. those evil tv people plan all the commercials at the same time anyway.
