OT: About tv and channels

I hate so called 'reality series' (what we in Sweden call 'docu soaps'), talk shows and game shows. If it was up to me I wouldn't pay for any 'tv package' because it wouldn't be worth my while. I read the news online and I also watch the few tv series and movies online as well, legally of course. It's my mom who insists on having a couple of channels - news mostly. Unfortunately, she also watches every single 'event', i e charity galas etc. Even more unfortunate is that since we live in the same house it's impossible for me to escape the noise coming from the tv. Whenever possible, I try to go for a walk so I won't have to 'passively' watch and listen to her shows.

Since I no longer feel it's worth the money to have tv packages, it's not such a problem for me personally, but a few years ago, I would have been really happy if the people selling these tv channels to consumers would have let us 'cherry-pick' the few channels we wanted, for a higher price, naturally. But no, they force you to pay for ten, twenty or more other channels, that I, for one, would never start. Never even use the settings to save on a certain channel number. So how can they make money from their commercials that I don't watch, ever? It's something I've never understood.

If I could have my wish, I'd like to see a special 'channel' that only had 'real' tv, like cop series, science fiction and movies. Not just the so called movie channels that mainly air movies that I've never heard of or that are extremely old, but not classics - like from the 1990's and earlier, and still, it's not the movies I might like to watch but stuff I've never heard of and quite rightly so, because they are probably the ones that both critics and viewers shunned when they first appeared. Whenever I have evaluated a 'movie channel' I've never heard of the movies included so where do they find this stuff?

In Which Stiles Channels Linda Blair by Lilia
In Which Stiles Channels Linda Blair - Lilia Ford

A well written short fic. When Omega Stiles goes into a manic heat, Peter manages to control the situation as usual. Mucho kink.

bookshelves: fraudio, boo-scary, fantasy, amusing, mythology, play-dramatisation, revenge

** spoiler alert ** G:AUDIO BOOKSto readThe History of the Devil

t's the SCI FI Channel's ambitious Seeing Ear Theatre (www.scifi.com/set) that's blazing a new trail for this old medium, with 27 plays having hit the cyberwaves since SET's inception in October 1996. The latest is Clive Barker's The History of the Devil, which airs in five parts through May 17 and stars Happiness' Baker as a Satan seeking readmission to heaven. Seeing Ear is also the place where Lili Taylor voiced Alice for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and where Star Wars' Mark Hamill and Star Trek's Walter Koenig have sat at the mic for previous dramas. What's in it for Sci Fi? A hip property, increased hits to the website, and, hopefully, more interest in the cable channel itself.
