This year the TV had me and it was fun. I am recovering from double total knee replacement surgery and I had fun switching between channels on Foxtel. It was good, because if I fell asleep watching Jerry Springer re-runs I could go the the +2 channel and pick up from where I last saw it. But after a few weeks it gets boring. There isn't much one can do after this type of surgery, for a couple of weeks anyway. The cricket (T20, one-day and five day matches) kept me sane until I was able to get about more. But yes, television stations and producers put on crap over the Christmas-New Year period.
I have just seen an episode from Dr Phil, where Jay's wife told everyone she was pregnant. Great, I thought. Dr Phil and Robin will now become one of us - GRANDPARENTS. That was until I found out the program was over three years old. Yet we are seeing ads where programs, shown in the US on Monday can now be seen 33 HOURS later in Australia. Why can't this happen all the time?
Now that I more mobile, I realise my garden needs me, my hobbies look forlorn and the days are too good to be infront of the tv.
