A Month of TV Commentary: A Meme in 30 Parts: Day 13

Day 13 – Favourite childhood show

It’s hard to pick just one show, as I was one of those kids in the TV age who grew up on the stuff. Also, where precisely would the dividing line be between childhood and not-childhood shows.

But thinking of it, there’s a show I remember quite fondly. It debuted when I was 10, and I watched it on and off for a number of years: PBS’s kid’s science programme 3-2-1 Contact

3-2-1 Contact was a magazine style program, with several (often related) segments dealing with science and nature. It also contained a running serial detective series with three kids, who would get caught up in various little mysteries, and solve them using some science trick or another:

Not sure how well they hold up after 30 years, though it was a bit of fun to rewatch these clips. Sadly, it doesn’t appear that this show has ever been released on DVD. C’mon, CTW, let’s see some love for the classics! 🙂

In Rememberance of the Day

I wrote these words eight years ago. They’re still true today.

I don’t have a problem with remembering the terrible human tragedy that occurred eight years ago today. I think it would do us all good to pause and reflect on how terrible events can bring us together, and to remember what we learned, as a nation, as a community, as a people, about the world.

But I also think we should spend more time looking forward, not looking back.

We should spend more time making grand plans and executing them, inviting our souls and being creative, and living life to the fullest.

We should spend more time doing small, special things for our friends, our family, our loved ones.

We should spend more time laughing, and making music, and increasing the joy in the people around us.

We should spend more time helping each other, and holding each other, and saying “I love you” to each other.

Because at the end of the day, each other is all we ever really have.

  • 10:05:33: @chrislhayes You’re dangerous, you are. With your…..words and things. Got our eye on you, yes we do, and make no mistake of it.
  • 10:52:28: Why is it still morning? Why is it not yet four in the afternoon?
  • 11:58:28: Got e-mail from my mother this morning, which was a nice surprise; last I knew her computer was dead & she wasn’t planning to replace it.
  • 14:56:10: @vixy Oh, what fun it all would be!

A Month of TV Commentary: A Meme in 30 Parts: Day 12

Day 12 – An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times

There’s a lot of episodes I’ve watched more than five times. I’ve always been one to revisit books, movies, and TV series that I really enjoy.

But the single episode of a TV series I’ve likely watched more times than any other, hands down, is the episode “Inferno’ from Coupling. This is largely because kitanzi and I tend to try and hook anyone who will sit still long enough on the show, and partly because it contains one of the greatest comedy rants of all time:

In all seriousness, if you’ve never seen Coupling, you should give it a try. Smart, snappy, and funny: everything you could ever ask from a situation comedy.
