I Don't Watch Much Television

    Never Missing Much!

    At home I hardly ever watch TV. The news is about the only thing I watch once in a while. DVDs are my main viewing, when I borrow, or download. I like TV when I visit friends and hey have tuned into something foreign.

    I used to watch television. I don't nowadays. It's been a couple months since I watched tv. It isn't that I don't have time or that nothing good's on. I just lost interest in watching. Will I gain interest in watching the channels I used to love watching, again? I hope so. I...

    Waste of Time

    There are a few shows I watch with my husband out of habit. They are entertaining, but I always have the nagging feeling that I could be doing something productive. I could go the rest of my life without a TV and not regret it, as long as I could watch movies.

    Boring

    Honestly I find most of the shows on tv these days quite boring and repetitive. There are a few exceptions but even the shows I really like get a bit old after a while. I would rather read a book than stare at a television so I can't really relate when people freak out about...

    Very Rarely

    When I have it on, i tend to keep it tuned to the music channels, for background noise. I am not interested in any continuing dramas, I don't have the staying power, and truly hate reality television shows, I find myself comparing everything I watch to something I ...

    Kill Your Tv

    My father was very strict and pretty unconventional. TV was against the rules. We had a TV and a VCR, movies were allowed (rarely) but TV never. At one point, when I was a curious pre-adolescent girl, we were living in Brazil. Soap Operas or 'Novelas' are very...

    Boring

    I have always found most of TV to be boring.  I gave myself some quidelines way back and have stuck with them more often than not.  Any show that uses a laugh track I will not watch.  I will not wrap my life around a TV show.  I have broken this rule twice...

    It's a Lie, You Can Use the Tv Without a Remote

    Usually because my sister is glued to it. Once I nicked the remote so she could change channels, I walked in ten minutes later to see she was happily using the box under the tv to swap channels, grrrrr, I was told that would work by someone. All it meant was she had to see right...

    I have a Netflix account,

    which apart from sports and the odd repeat of The Bill, I tend to watch TV on there, even then it's maybe two hours towards the end of the day. Unless I'm in binge mode of course, like I was whilst watching Breaking Bad. I read much more nowadays. TV bores me more often than...

    It's Too Easy

    It's too easy to just switch the TV on and then drift from one programme to another and before you know it life was what happened while you were busy watching TV.  When I think of all the things I want to do in my spare time, watching TV comes pretty far down the list. ...

    Not Really Missed

    Yeah, I used to watch a lot of TV. I liked watching game shows and cartoons. In fact one of my favourite things to do in grade school was rush home and watch the Disney Afternoon. I noticed as I got older, that although the shows I loved were long cancelled save for Jeopardy...
