The Best Thing on TV

It’s hard to choose just one thing as the best thing on TV right now, but I’m going to do it anyway. I’m going with the Netflix only drama Orange is the New Black. It has great stories (that’s plural, folks) to tell, an underpinning of cultural examination that’s much needed, and a cast that is outstanding in every way. What’s your one pick?

  1. I don’t have one pick. I love the bad boys – Tony Soprano, now deceased, Dexter, Donovan, the guy from Homeland. The characters are so complicated, so mixed, so well developed that you can love and hate them at the same time.

  2. I don’t watch TV. I could. Lord knows, I could. There are three TVs in my house. But I don’t watch TV. I read instead. Or sit on the porch. Or listen to music. Show tunes, mostly. All of those things being true, I suppose I would say that the best thing on TV is the “off” switch.

  3. There should be a warning on televisions when you buy them.

    May cause excessive eating.
    May reduce you to tears.
    May cause the purchase of the ab-o-matic.
    May cause ab-o-matic neglect.
    May increase the possibility of vegetable disease, i.e. couch potato fever.

    Tv’s should have a warning!

  4. The best thing on tv right now in my opinion is the weather channel. It is very important. How would I know how to dress, how would I know how to dress my children, how would I know if it is even safe to leave the house??
