I hope we haven't heard the last of Chuck in the Truck.

I concur. Chuck in the Truck is someone we can all relate to.

Jeez, it was like a punch right to the gut when Mike and Therese agreed how hateable people are who say they don't watch TV. I still remember Chris T. saying the same thing back in the Aerial View days.  I don't watch TV, what am I supposed to do, lie?  Why are we hated? If you prick us, do we not bleed?

OH MY GOD. I'm listening to the show right now and the caller just told the story about the teacher singing "Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather."  There are some sick fucks out there!

Mike, of course, has the most trenchant comment: "We're bringing sexy back."

Also, that is just the best euphemism for ... well, whatever you want it to be for.

I don't hate you personally, but I will attempt to explain why you and your kind are hated by others.

Anti-TV people are on the whole snobs who don't have the first clue what they are talking about when they say there is nothing useful about television. The fact is that there is some AMAZING television out there, well worth the time spent watching it. Yes, there is a mountain of trash and the news is mostly bunk, but that is still worth keeping tabs on too. Making the choice to not have a TV cannot be a matter of hating what television represents either, because it is too late to fight that battle. You might as well be protesting the descendants of Gutenberg. It's already here, so just come out of your yurt and deal with it. Maybe you'll even enjoy it!

Unless one can come up with a good enough reason to avoid television beyond snobbery (and I dare anyone to try), then you are wrong and should in fact watch tv. This is my belief as a tv watcher, developed over a year spent living in an anti-tv cohabitation situation (verified fact).

I don't watch TV, either! (does Hulu count? cause I watch that everyday on a laptop).

Joe for me the issue is how television is consumed and processed.

I actually had a boyfriend who was constantly talking about "getting off the grid" and he was seriously considering buying a yurt and living in it.

Youse guys get one guess how long that lasted when I found that out. Well, he did have good pot, though. Shocker, I know.

listened to most of the show wednesday, but was pleasantly surprised to find it on my podcast archive list when i plugged in my ipod thursday.  Loved it.  They need a show. 
Sounds like someone was working as a conduit for nature's natural vengeance.  Just like Jesus.  And some of the others.

i used to work at a health food store with a woman who had similar plans... and she also dealt pot.
she ended up building an adobe hut out on some land in the sticks. she still deals pot too, people go over these dirt roads and knock on her little clay door to buy weed. she's single.
guess how much money is in my wallet?

I agree. There is amazing television out there, no argument. For me it's a matter of how and when the content is presented. I stopped watching 'television' about 10+ years ago. I do have a beautiful 42inch plasma display hooked up to a blu-ray player only and surround sound for the sole purpose of watching movies. It's great. I guess the point is, I program stuff I want to watch when I want to watch it, almost commercial free(I say almost cause sometimes movies can be very long commercials). I fucking hate commercials, I understand their importance regarding revenue stream and that it allows programming to be made etc...when I travel and end up in a hotel somewhere then turn the tv on, the commercials kill me. That's why I love the firefox browser, I can block the shit out of everything especially commercials(guess you could do the same with DVRs). That being said, I do make some portion of my living from providing services to the commercial film industry. And I'm not being a snob, commercials work...I am easily influenced by them. Also, it seemed to be the default thing to do when I hit the sofa, turn tv on and go slack jawed for several hours. I had this thought that if I removed that element from my life it would lead to better things, like reading or interacting with people. I can say that it did, which is a good thing. The other side of that is now I've replaced tv watching with computer watching which I'm sure is not any better, perhaps worse. So, I don't miss tv programs...I do follow closely the comments made on this forum about tv shows, it seems to me you folks have great taste in that area. I have yet to be disappointed. You are my chosen gate keepers. Thanks.

What I hate about people who don't watch TV is that when you ask them if they're watching a particular TV program, they love doing this annoying, throw their hands up in the air, raise their eyebrows, smile big, and say, "Sorry, I don't OWN a TV!" thing.  They're not sorry.
