State Of The What?

Anybody watching the constitutionally mandated infotainment show on TV tonight? I’ve just gotten into binge watching The Killing on Netflix (no affiliate link), so I don’t know. The Killing has an interesting plot that keeps you guessing, but is very low key and understated, kinda slow moving and dark themed. The show on The Hill, conversely, is noisy, fast paced and glamorous, but the acting isn’t very convincing; like a scripted reality show (I say this based on previous experience). It’s a tossup. I could go either way. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m on the fence about the whole thing. Choices, just too many goddamn choices on TV these days. Not really. They guy (gal?) who invented DVR is probably doing quite well financially.

GOP Debate

So are you going to watch the GOP “debate” on FOX tonight? Me neither. It’s a joke. Failing democracy disguised as reality TV. Or is it the other way around? Oh yeah, Huntsman’s out. (Insert Chinese characters that my browser can’t read saying “Goodbye loser” here.)
