A thought on TV
My 3 munchkins got tucked in for the evening and I decided to curl up on the couch and relax in front of the TV. As the show I was watching started referring to masturbation and an orange penis I looked at the clock. It was only shortly after 8:30pm.
Now, my kids are little so they are usually in bed by 8 or shortly thereafter. However, many of my friends have kids that are still up and I know it won't be long before mine are awake past 8. It made me think about all the shows I enjoy watching and I realized there isn't one thing I'd find suitable for my children to watch.
When did 8pm stop being the family TV hour and shows about pregnancies as a result from a one night stand and orange penis' become acceptable viewing? Call me old fashioned if you will but I long for shows like the Cosby Show. That was a show I watched with my entire family and we'd joke how we thought they snuck in to view our mishaps and put them on TV. Or my dad would get an idea from Cliff and Claire and swear he was going to try it (like the time they put price tags on all of Theo's belongings and he was expected to buy them back).
I also love watching old reruns of Leave It to Beaver...a good wholesome FAMILY show. Media people...please....bring back some good viewing that I can enjoy with my entire family! People, am I alone in this??
