September 01, 2005
Last night I got to watch TV for the first time for months. It was amazing and mindless and I enjoyed every minute of it, I was even entranced by the adverts!
I watched a crazy programme called something like 'Dressing Dangerously' in which a middle aged woman got to dress up in outrageously hideous clothes for the week. The idea is that her slightly repressed fun or self assurance (perhaps due to motherhood and such things), would be drawn back out by being in 'costume'. The best bit of this programme was her mortified teenage daughter who I feel will be even more embarrassed in a few years by her own classically adolescent reaction on national TV than she will be embarrassed still by her mother.
Next I watched Super Nanny. I've heard all about this. And the kids were horrible, and I guess she's pretty good. But do people really watch an hour of this every week? I enjoyed it yesterday, but only desperation would drive me to watch screaming kids at 9pm when all kids should be in bed and forgotten.
Finally I watched Lost. I can see the craze. Very addictive. Damn it.
Shouldn't get too used to TV though. Only a few months before I have to lose it again.
