Now, I should be clear, there are a lot of horrible TV shows out there. From the boringest of boring to the awfulest of awful. But not all shows hold my attention. There are plenty of shows that I will pass by and not give it a second thought.
But then there are THOSE shows. You know what I mean. The trainwrecks you can’t look away from. For example, this week I ended up watching a show about 6-year-old beauty queens. Although I was most horrified and worried for the self-esteem of those little girls, I could not for the life of me stop watching. I kept thinking “man, this is awful, I should really not even watch this” but no. I watched the entire thing.
I mean really people, where is my self control? If I have to watch more than 5 minutes of world war two planes on the history international channel I may kill myself, but you put on the national cheerleading championship and I am hooked. And ultimately embarrassed.
I question myself, why would you have such horrible taste? I wonder why I can’t get into shows that other people seem to like such as Lost or Heroes, but yet I get sucked into House (which I HATE) or even sometimes Dr. Phil!!! (This is like the worst confession ever, I had no idea the post was going in this direction)
Anyway, to all the horrible TV shows out there that suck me in, I hate you. I really do. Even if there is nothing better on, there are always books to be read and sleep to be had, dvds to be watched, and food to be eaten. May my confession lead me to better TV judgement.
PS If you want to tell me how good Lost or Heroes or House or whatever is, save your breath. Or your typings. Or whatever.
