Yep, I remember the test pattern being on till 6pm when TV officially started. Then of course the cut off early too. I also remember no swearing, no explicit sex scenes etc. Today everything goes from 2-21 movies, filthy language, demonic movies...you name it, it can be viewed right in your home.

House looks funny tonight. I have not been feeling this season overall though.

The kids like Psych. One of the few family friendly shows for all age groups IMO.

I do watch Kitchen Nightmares and Hells' Kitchen with Gordon Ramsey, but honestly have been tuning out more and more lately just because its sometimes such a train wreck.

Chopped and Top Chef are my favorite cooking shows. The kids like Good Eats and Guys travel food show (which makes me feel fat watching it)

Husband's favorite is Ghost Hunters.

I guess to me the important thing about television is to keep it limited and make sure it doesn't become destructive in terms of consuming too much of your time or life.

Although there are shows that I like, I never feel like I can't do something because I have to watch a show.

Oh my gosh, there are too many wonderful things in life to experience to waste my time watching t.v.! I love to read a good book or watch a movie I have gotten from netflix instead.

My number one is:
The Amazing Race

I just love it and I've seen everything they've send in Finnish tv! We are behind here, so we just finished season 12. Oh, how cute the winning pair was!

Numbero two then... It's Finnish tv-show, Karjalan kunnailla. It tells about small Carelian village, with lots of funny, nice, even sad things happening. I've seen first and second season, now waiting for season 3 that will be on tv autumn 2011.

I did it for nearly a year while we had family living in our lounge. It just got too inconvenient to try and watch TV when they were up or dressed etc.
Now, I watch occasionally. In fact, recently dh laughingly said all we need in a home these days is a barbecue area, kitchen, sleeping area and PC room. No spare rooms, no lounge.

Annie, we actually had the cable turned off last year at this time. It's really better to not be able to turn on the TV and mindlessly watch. You get roped in too easily. With no cable, we only sat down to watch a movie when we had the time. Since we have cable again (for now) we have a TV schedule. If it's not on the list, the TV isn't on. It's amazing what you accomplish without it!

Try being TV-free. You might like it!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Name one or two of your most favorite television shows - these are the ones you definitely don't miss!

(filling in for Laura through the week)

Hmmm mine would have to be NCIS (which has really grown on me this last year). My best two though are Burn Notice (USA) and The Closer (TNT)
