Remotely Familiar

Martin Crane: Where's the remote? I can't find the remote!

Frasier Crane: (Handing his dad the remote) What was it like when you had to actually get up and walk across the room to change the channel?

Martin Crane: It was hell.

My eyes are going bonkers; my backside is asleep; I haven't left the computer all day. I need a break. I think I'll go watch TV.

"I know you're thinking that the solution is obvious: Don't watch television. But this solution is a surefire loser. Without watching television, where are you going to get the life experience to write your novel?"
—John Warner

Sad but true: our TV system has gotten so complicated that I have to operate the TV by hand - the remote is too much. (Picture much mocking by my children and spouse). I guess the good news there is that I don't watch enough TV to have become familiar with the remote.

Your picture made me laugh. At one point in our lives I had a strip of duct tape across the carpet in front of the television and the children had to be behind it to watch. Otherwise they were inches away. Talk about not getting the big picture!

I don't watch much TV -- I'm addicted to my computer.

We don't have our tv hooked up to pick up channels, we just use it to watch movies. (Makes owning a brand new tv kind of silly, huh....)

I probably shouldn't admit it, but I really, really, really love watching TV.

Remember when there were only 3 channels and those were in grainy black and white and the picture would start to roll and someone had to get up to adjust the rabbit ears.
