Iíve basically given up the teev. Thereís just so much stuff online to keep me occupied all evening long.

Iíve been travelling for four months. Seen almost no TV in that time. Donít feel like Iíve missed a thing! But then Iíd virtually given it up well before I quit mí job and hit thí road anyway.

So, do the good people of OLO find themselves watching less television and spending more time online these days? Or is TV as popular as ever?

Dear Ludwig,

I don't watch that much television. But there are some
programs that I do enjoy. Sunday mornings - "The Insiders,"
is a must. As is "Q and A" Monday evenings. I enjoyed
"Midsomer Murders," when it was on. And I love "The Big
Bang Theory." "Lateline" is another program that I
don't miss, as is "60 Minutes." I became addicted to
"My Kitchen Rules," and developed quite a thing for Manu
Feidel.

Ludwig I am finding TV most annoying these days.

All the good stuff, mostly documentaries that used to reside on the ABC when it was still worth having, are now on SBS. This is most unfair to all the non metropolitan viewer who can't receive their programs.

Unfortunately I often find 3 of the half a dozen things I would like to watch for the week, are on at the same day & time, with a couple of them on the SBS stations. I refuse to start taping TV programs.

I recently realised I had not seen Quantum for some time, one thing I really liked, as I never look at the ABC section of the program these days. Unfortunately when I did watch it, I found some "B" grade global warming pot boiler, & turned it off for ever.

We really must cut the funding to the lefty propaganda machine some time soon.

Only the cooking show on Lexis list is not on mine.
I have it on now ABC 24.
If nothing else it helps ward off the grumpy old man within.
Stay in touch not just with news but trends and younger folk.
