I didn't have a TV set from 1989 - 95. Well I didn't have a TV set like Meghan and Rachel don't have a TV. That is to say, I didn't have cable. I had a 13 inch with whatever the rabit ears could get. For some reason Fox 25 comes in strong but nothing else does. I had a VCR so I could watch movies. When I lived on my boat my TV was a Sega Game Gear with the TV tuner card. 3 inches of "In Color" action. Again, Fox 25 was pretty much all I could tune in. When I built an antenna to see if Swamp was going to be the next Columbine all I could tune in was Fox 25. X-files, The Simpsons, In Living Color, Married With Children & Get A Life. Each as entertaining as the last. Oh yeah and that show about a kid who lived in a ministorage who sometimes turned into a wherewolf. Hermans Head, everyone from Fright Night had a place on Fox. 90210 but for some reason I never got into Melrose Place. 21 Jump Street.
Admit it, TV during the early 90's wasn't that bad if all you could watch was Fox. I was vaguely aware of other networks. What was on other channels? Some show about a girl who was a robot but she thought she was a real little girl. It wasn't Punky Brewster. It was much worse. And some show about a retarded kid. I think it was called Life Goes On. I think the message was that if you're retarded you can do all sorts of crap that seemed rebellous 30 years earlier without the slightest hint of irony.
I'm just glad I never watched it. I did a lot of acid then. I don't think I could handle the flashbacks
You totally know I'm going to play this
for my students just to see the look on their faces.
