LIKE YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO DO
Welcome to My So Called TV Blog: The Cubicle Drone’s Guide to the World of Television, or MSCTVBTCDGWT for short. Television is one of…nay, is the most important thing in ever. We at MSCTV will look back at the shows that shaped a generation to see if they still hold up. (hint: most don’t) We’ll obsess nonstop over the shows that give us warm fuzzies and always make us moist. Additionally, we’ll blindly lash out at anything about TV that we despise and are certain will lead to the Idiocracy. I’m looking at you Real Housewives, Mind of Mencia, The Jeff Dunham Show, CBS’s comedies, and the E! network. Except for The Soup. Jeff Winger kicks ass.
Anybody that tells me that they never watch TV is either a goddamn
liar or more importantly, someone I hate. We all have a moment when watching TV became more important than homework, going outside, and bathing. Maybe it was the first time you saw Theo learn a lesson about the importance of an education with Monopoly money. Or maybe shit got really real when you found out Jesse Spano was so…so…scared.
Maybe you grew up watching reruns of MASH and Dragnet and you just don’t understand the shows these damn kids like so much nowadays with their music and ethnicities.
Somewhere along the way, we had that magic moment and we keep coming back for more. Now we sit transfixed as Raylan Givens builds up his body count or wish our friends were half as cool as Troy and Abed. For you, maybe TV peaked when Stringer Bell got got. Or you’re still pissed that Firefly got cancelled and you know that some day Joss Whedon will get the crew together again. (don’t count on it) If Don Draper could be your designated driver and you’re still pretty sure you want to join the F.O.O.T clan, then welcome home.
We the people of MSCTV are here to explore everything that makes us TV junkies. Some would call what you’ll see here the ranting of madmen. Others would say this is a never ending manifesto. I say it’s something to distract you for a few minutes while the fluorescent lighting above you slowly eats away at your soul. Enjoy.
