Thought for the Day 18 August 2018

Last night I tried to watch some TV. After a bit of Currie Cup rugby, I got bored and started to channel hop. Up and down and side to side I went without finding a single thing that attracted any sort of interest so I switched the TV off and went off to find a book to read. So my thought today is:

“Is TV content a load of rubbish or is it just me?”

I have been considering this question and analyzing what I watch and don’t watch. I got two lists one shorter than the other. Longest first – I watch sport – rugby, soccer (usually highlights only), tennis, (not Andy Murray, who I think is a wimp and a disgrace to Scotland and why doesn’t Rafael Nadal buy underpants that fit his butt so that he doesn’t have to keep fiddling with his wedgies before he serves?) formula one and less often athletics, boxing and golf. “Is that really the longest list?” I hear you ask. Well yes it is, which is where my thought for the day comes from. I seldom watch anything else. I can’t say “never” because I do sometimes watch ‘The Voice’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and ‘Big Bang Theory and Trevor Noah specials. But that’s about it. I hate reality shows with a passion. (Since they’re all so obviously scripted, not real at all, and the people are boring or downright horrible – I mean, who in their right mind would even think about keeping up with the Kardashians?)  I can’t stand Soapies and I find Cooking Shows boring. And there’s only so many times you can even think about watching a repeat of an ancient movie. So the thought-question stands.

‘Is it rubbish or is it me?’

I’ll leave the answer to you.     

Cheers, Dave
