THis will be (plan on it being) a short post... but on a topic that bugs the dickens out of my wife and me.
Anyone ever watch TLC? AKA, The LEARNING Channel?
My wife and I have yet to figure out what there is to LEARN on TLC...
I can guess 9 times out of 10 what will be on it before turning to it. I simply say "something about tattoos or building chopper motocycles." I am ussually right...
Here is abrief glimps of their programming:
"Krazy Kids" First off, I love the witty misspelling. This was a show with home videos of kids acting funny... AFV basically. What can be learned? Babies are funny.
"Miami Ink" How far can you take a show about tattoos... not a history of them, a reality show of a parlor. Can you say "Yawn"? What is learned? Someone fill in this blank.
"American Chopper" Okay, the first 2 or 3 times you atch it, it is cool. Nice bikes, nice workmanship, cool rides... okay, then toss in a stupid son who is there only at the producers request for laughs, make the dad get so angry you wonder if his penis is the size of a toothpick and the only way he can feel better is to yell the F word 50 times, get spitting angry at some milimeter mistake, and call it good programming. What is learned? Dont make a 65 year old mane with tattoos mad.
"Little People, Big World". Cool show, but honestly, it has run its course... they are midgets. They are small, they overcome things, awesome... let it end.
