A girl sits down with her grandmother. Girl: Tell me about the time when everyone watched the same program at the same time and would talk about it the next day.
That was back in the “dark ages” when phones had wires hooked to them and cameras had film.Cheers.
I just read books.
Actually they still talk about it. I am often amazed at how more or less normal adults get into some of these series, especially the really stupid ones like “Under the Dome”. I have one friend who complained weekly about the lame plot but he kept watching it faithfully every week. I must be kind of strange, I don’t watch stuff I don’t like and I prefer stories with people that I might like and respect. There is enough tragedy in the world without inventing more. I find Criminal Minds depressing. Code Black is probably well done but I have seen enough of that in real life.
Water cooler chat about Edith Bunker and Lawrence Welk…woo hoo!
Breaking Bad. Now that was a show everybody talked aboutthe next day, not long ago….
The Honeymooners. Ed Sullivan. Walt Disney’s Wonder World of Color. The Wizard of Oz (When it was on once a year, early December, before cable & VHS)
