Tuesday 4 ~ Television

It's time for  Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4.
A Family Affair

Television has become a large part of people's lives so it might be nice to discuss it and it's impact on our lives.

1.  Do you have a TV in your home or perhaps more than one?

Yes we have a large television (55 inch smart television) in the living room and another large television (55 inches but not a smart television) in the bedroom. The one in the bedroom is never watched or used. It is basically being stored though it is set up for viewing. When I got the new television some years ago I tried to give away the old one but there were no takers and that's why I kept it.

2.  Which programs do you like to watch?

I tend to favour news, news magazine type shows, family shows and criminal or spy movies. I also like a good Christian program but with basic channels it's hard to get good, solid Christian teaching on television.

3.  Could you do without your TV or is it on most of the time when you are home?

It really depends on my energy level and other activities. I've been so busy that I really haven't had time for too much television except late at night. I switched to basic cable for that reason.  I watch more television when I'm low energy, sickly or just not that busy with other activities.

4.  Is there a TV character that stands out in your mind for any reason at all? Maybe there is more than one or maybe there is a cast of a show you found memorable?

There are a lot of TV characters that stand out in my mind for no particular reason other than I enjoyed watching them when I was a child. Those were the days when everyone only had 2 channels and the same programs. I think it was far easier in those times to become invested in particular shows and characters. Some of them I remember fondly were Canadian shows for children:  The Forest Rangers and Adventures in Rainbow Country.

Maybe you would enjoy watching Christian shows on YouTube. I watch Gary Hamrick and Allen Jackson, ( not the country singer) Have a blessed week!

I think I would like The Forest Rangers. My kids and I used to watch Are you Afraid of the Dark and Caillou was a favorite.. both Canadian programs for kids.

The TV programs I prefer is live talk shows on topical, social problems by the professionals, sportive events (especially soccer), detective movies, documentary films of history or nature. and so on. I can do without TV most of the time when I’m at home,

We stream TV through the internet so we watch a lot of older shows. My hubby likes the news channel. Our other TV my son uses for a gaming center.

Loved reviewing all your answers. I have missed everyone and trying to get back into my blogs because I love them so much. I listen to more music when my husband is at work. It keeps me calm in this otherwise fallen world. I do love good Christian programming. Thanks for sharing.

TV has been a big part of my life and career. Now I've cut the cable cord and just stream or watch what comes over the antenna.
