TSP2013 - Watching Television

In the evening we may watch some television. We tend to watch a lot of documentaries and educational shows. We enjoy movies, science fiction programs, and crime scene/mystery fiction shows as well. We do not tend to enjoy reality shows or most of the sitcoms on the tube today.

More often than not the television is on as background noise while we do other things. I will draw or be on the computer.

Anthony is the only one that actually sits and watches a show from beginning to end. He mostly watches documentaries or films. He chooses what he wants to watch and pays attention. If he is not watching television he is playing his guitar or reading (often with a bird by his side). He finds it annoying that I cannot just sit and watch.

The words "Watch a Little Television" has a tongue-in-cheek meaning as well as the straight forward meaning. Our television is a large flat screen so it is kind of a joke to by saying it is "little". And, of course, I also mean that we only watch a little bit instead of a lot of television shows.
