I am so weary of the technology hoops I have to jump through to have access to what use to come into my house so easily….television. 

Except for the occasional turning of the antenna outside, in my old days the pursuit of network television viewing was simple and free. Now that I think about it, I provided the child labor for the channel changer...

How I miss those days…sure, I had three channels, but that too was better than too many channels. Deciding what to watch now is an endless loop of channel rotation where nothing seems to satisfy.

The cost of cable has gone through my roof so we now have replaced it with streaming. 

Are we happy yet? Well, its not as easy, more complicated, and not free, but at least I could tell the cable company "buh bye"! 
That felt good.

In this tv new world (I know we are still catching up, give me a break, we forced my hubby into using a smartphone a couple of years ago) ...we now call stations—Apps. 

Initially, we have to download and setup and try…

The fight for Renewal of Colony USA is Over

The Update....the final answer
TWEET BY WrathofCondalFor the hardworking fans, the Outliers, that tried their best to have an ending, or the continuation of the TV show, Colony on USA...I say thank you!Thanks to all who signed our petitions... Its over. We tried. We failed.
I will find it harder and harder to invest in shows knowing that at any moment they can be yanked from the air, filling us with frustration. The lack of respect for the audience is growing....
#renewcolony #savecolony We have been defeated.  Back to real life...hope the best for the cast and crew of the series!

Where are my TV Story ENDINGS?

Why I Watch Established TV Series
I know that Gilligan never got off that darn island and I can live with that, but the growing number of television series that pop up, gain your viewing trust, and then disappear into the night has become an epidemic!


I see promos for new series, they sound really cool but before I can check into them a notice is out the Network has pulled the series! Its a business decision, I get that.

HOWEVER, there is a difference in a pilot, add a few episodes of a new series to see if it sticks with audience compared to three seasons of a show. I have invested time.

It's like Goldilocks is just sitting in a chair for no reason and we leave her there forever! Did the bears come back and eat her?  Why do the Networks allow this? Shows that hang us out to dry? To just....stop.


Even Seinfeld had an ending, maybe not a good one, but it ended! I still remember watching M.A.S.H's epic last episode which brought years of story-line to a satisfying conclusion. T…

WHY DO I WRITE THIS I rarely get into Internet squabbles or defend the honor of Hollywood Celebrities, but I am in a campaign now online to support Chris Hardwick. Maybe my 14 years as a Lifestyle Newspaper Columnist empowers me, in my delusion, I feel I need to speak my mind. 
     Not that anyone may listen, but the inner writer still wants to speak--my voice needs to be heard even if the only ears are my own and my Mom’s.     My platform has dwindled since my last column in 2013...and with all the newspapers being sold or closed, etc., it's hard to find my archived columns and articles through a google search anymore..so, I blog.
ME TOO?The recent #MeToo movement has brought great changes to our society and I celebrate the great achievements. Empowering the silent sufferers has turned around nasty behavior that was kept in the dark for too long...so, please do not take what I am going to say like I do not support it...I have lived it. I am a member of the #METOO movement and n…
