I was watching an epidsode of the classic tv show My Three Sons a few weeks ago and saw the most remarkable episode. It was all about television watching. There were 3 stories running throughout the episode that break down something like this:
Sons 2 and 3 were grounded from the television for fighting over what to watch and spent the entire episode in a state of misery for not being able to watch tv.
Son 1 (in college) was involved with a project referred to as reality tv but quit toward the end of the episode because the so-called reality tv was anything but.
and the Father on a business trip became addicted to late night television talk shows but eventually saw the errors of his ways (staying up late makes you tired during the day) and stopped watching and instead wished for an Early Show.
So what I want to know is how did they know and why didn't we listen to them when we had the chance?
