Mindless TV

Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 6:46 AM

Hi Everyone,

I thought it would be fun for people to talk about the mindless TV they watch to relax - that stuff that is so incredibly dumb and useless, except for the fact that it gives us a chance to veg out. I don't watch much TV, but was thinking this week about what we will watch when my step son is home next week for Christmas. He always has us watching Wipeout, which is a competition show where they send contestants through difficult, and often messy, obstacle courses, on a race to see who will win a cash reward. It's funny and totally ridiculous - great stuff for my step-son who is finishing up a degree in chemical engineering. If anyone needs mindless TV now-and-then, it's him!

So, how about you guys? What "junk" do you watch?

    Haha yea, anybody in the process of completing any kind of engineering degree needs something to just chill out and de-stress to.

    Personally though I can't watch any kind of mindless TV. If I do it just feels like my brain is rotting away...

    That's embarrassing that we call Girls of the Playboy Mansion "Girls Next Door" here! There's just something wrong with that!

    I agree with David. I cannot stomach the ridiculous nonsense that is being put out there and being passed off as entertainment these days.
    I watch Business shows primarily, Political shows secondarry, with some CMT thrown in on the weekend, ( music videos & country entertainment news ONLY ).
    Other than that, I'll find something positive to do, like come onto TC, ride one of my bikes for cardio, or study my homework that never, ever, seems to be complete, as one of my jobs is my involvement in the Equities Markets. The homework for that is constant, and never ending..............................
