  1. I just over heard on a commercial that they are going to have yet ANOTHER Joe Millionsuck.

    Except they are taking people from Europe.

    I hate realty TV.:mad:

    Mee too. Vote with your finger and don't watch it. If enough of us do that, maybe it'll go away eventually.
     
  3. You just heard that NOW? Jesus. Fox Providence has been showing those commercials for a while...

    I really don't get the whole "TV" thing. I get blank stares followed by offers for free TVs when I mention I don't have/want/need/watch TV.

    Where do All y'all find the time to just sit and watch? I'd rather read, surf, practice, listen to music, etc.

    This "Reality TV" stuff sounds like Pro Wrestling :rolleyes:

    Turn the thing off and play some bass :bassist:

    Now I get those same blanke stares when I tell people I don't have a TV, and don't want one. I LIKE not having TV. It's liberating, in it's own little way.

    Amen to that! I haven't watched TV for almost 8 years now, and it's great! I don't miss it at all. If I ever actually see it on a friends house, it shocks me to realize how bad it really is. Reality is not TV people. Read a book.

    It's just people wanting to be on TV. Hoping perhaps to be "discovered". I think they have been already though...as suckers!

    Kaz, your young mind needs to be molded into a sharp instrument! Reality TV such as "Joe Millionare" (Cool name by the way) is not good for the brain! If you must watch TV, choose stations or shows that actually TEACH you something. TLC, Discovery, History and the Science channel are great sources of knowledge!

    The remote control is like "GOD", it has the power to change things!!


    It's mind's like yours that will be our future!!
    Fill it with things that are useful, not with things that are useless!! ;)

    I love the Simpsons. I also watch the Headbangers Ball if I'm around. The Ball doesn't require much as they only show about three videos in a two hour span. Just keep the mute button handy and sit there with your bass. I use my tv for movie rentals otherwise.
     
  19. TV now days is flooded with so much crap I have just gotten sick of it!

    The only shows I watch now (if I even feel like watching TV) are JAG, Simpsons, Married With Children, M.A.S.H. and E.R., otherwise, I won't watch it unless there is a decent movie on (rarely happens).

    If I'm not watching TV then I'm either chillin with friends, playing bass, playing a computer game (which I rarely do for long periods of time anymore) or surfin TB!

    What's that? Is it where people go on TV and buy homes, and we get to watch them close escrow???
