Television has played an important part in my life. My own Grandmother left me her old Philco TV when she passed away.
These were all well thought out entertainment with story lines, comedy writers, professional musicians and singers and professional voice talent.
So last night I took my mother out to eat. We were too late to sit in the dining room of her favorite restaurant, so we sat in the bar which had multiple televisions featuring shows I have never seen.
It would have been more entertaining to see Dick the Bruiser take on the Sheik in Big Time Wrestling. At least that had some acting.
He becomes all dewy eyed at their hard work, dedication and how hard their job really is. He never realized this since he was on vacation or playing golf while his minions were slaving so he could take a vacation and play golf on company time.
At the end, he winds up promoting someone or sending another one some money to help their poor family.
At least this show has more of a story, although the reality is that this is the way business works and has since England created serfdoms. I wonder if they will ever do an Indonesian version of this in which the boss goes undercover and promotes a couple of twelve year old factory worker to shop foreman or gives them an hour off, or two potty breaks a day.
Until then, I am reading books.
