    Is it possible to turn on the tv and not have to see a gay man telling someone how to dress?

    No. Pick up the TV, walk out side, and put it by the curb.

    And the "good" shows (like ER tonight) puts down the Baptist and elevates the Lesbian.

    Not much worth watching, for certain sure.

    (Until NFL next fall)

    Reality TV, Gay/lebian rights, dysfunction within the family, and shows about death/killings are what this nation has gravitated toward.


    I out in a tape and watch older movies like The King and I, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, To Sir with Love and movies such as these.

    The VCR may be outdated,but it still lets us watch quality television when we want to watch it.
    OR the curb would be an acceptable place.
    Trash TV deserves it's rightful place.

    Why not listen to the radio instead, Chuck Swindoll has a great radio ministry called Insight for Living which is a million times better way to spend your time than watching that junk on satans outreach!

    The Shadow.
    The Buster Brown show.
    No School Today (Big Jon and Sparky)!
    Let's Pretend.
    The Kraft Mystery Theatre.
    Tom Corbett and the Space Patrol.
    Fibber McGee and Molly.

    Yes, I have silver hair.

    I do and I don't have silver hair ;)

    But I like TV! I'm just particular what I watch [​IMG]

    I watched "The Apprentice" last night. Their job was to prepare a television commercial for a Dove product. One team used the "gay" theme and it didn't succeed. It was awful. In fact both teams were so bad that both teams had to go to the Board Room.

    What kind of garbage are you watching to see gay men telling others what to wear. It might take a little self control, but I believe you can watch TV responsibly and avoid that kind of programming.

    Just curious.
    What do you do if "objectionable" commercials come on? You can switch it but by that time it has already invaded your home. Too late! They gotcha!
    What about the bikini beer ads? Or the bikini car ads? etc...
    No, the best course is to chuck it!
    But you do what you want, you will anyway. :D

    Yes, one of my few shows that I like to catch. At least the "Baptist" wasn't a total caricature, like you so often see. But I'm told by a fan who keeps up with such things, that this Baptist character is signed on for 2 or 3 more episodes, so the jury's not out yet. I think the story line could have been handled better, but I also know it could have been handled worse. How much can you expect from one of the most popular mainstream shows?

    (And as far as I'm concerned, that's nothing good on until Spring training! Play Ball!)

    I like NUMB3RS. It's new and on tonight. It's a lot like CSI but with no skimpy tops for the ladies. It's on opposite 'Monk' so we watch Monk in reruns or later at night.

    The only thing wrong with Monk IMO, is that it's scarey for me to watch because I keep identifying with his obsessive-compulsive behavior.

    As an interesting game, try seeing who can be first to spot the obligitory gay reference in each program. It usually occurs during the first ten minutes of the show but sometimes it is more subtle as in a wink or knowing look. A variation on the game is to change channels every time there is a reference (pro or con) but that is not as much fun as it results in an overheated remote and is a terrible drain on the batteries.

    Answer: YES it is possible.

    It is a very tricky thing to do so follow these instructions to the T. It will also work with cable or sattelite.

    Ok here it goes.

    Walk over to the TV.
    Get to the back of your TV
    Bend down
    Grab the plug
    Unplug the TV from the wall.
    Get back up
    Walk to your couch
    Grab the remote
    Surf all you want! [​IMG]
