Friday Five!

1. How many TVs do you have in your home?

2. On average, how much TV do you watch in a week?
Hard to tell. Probably about 20 or so, as I have the telly running when I do housework, cook, am online, eat alone, etc, etc. I rarely really *watch* (as in: do nothing else), only during the holy hour of the week, when Buffy is on.

3. Do you feel that television is bad for young children?
Depends on the amount, the kind of show, and whether it is unsupervised or not. Some TV, carefully selected, supervised and discussed with parents, and levelled with other activities (sports, reading, arts, music) can not harm. Unsupervised "parking of the kids in front of the TV" for hours, however, can be harmful, IMHO.
I know some families who do not have TV connection (but a VCR) at home, and that's a concept I find quite intrigeuing.

4. What TV shows do you absolutely HAVE to watch, and if you miss them, you're heartbroken?
Buffy and Angel. Twin Peaks re-runs, and episodes of "7th Heaven" that I haven't seen yet.

5. If you had the power to create your own television network, what would your line-up look like?
Unbiased news, Buffy, Angel, Twin Peaks, BBC health documentaries and lots of artsy european movies.
