I’m getting a lot of positive feedback around my recent appearance on Antique Roadshow. Here’s a quick synopsis in case you missed it.

I brought my Dad on the program. The appraiser took one look at him and said “You’re right, he is cheap!”

THIS BLOG ENTRY WAS STARTED IN OCTOBER 2012 AND RELEGATED TO DRAFT STATUS AS MY DVR WAS AT 98%…PRIORITIES. I’M FINALLY READY TO RELEASE:

One of my favorite seasons is the Fall TV Premiere Season. As a child I can recall how I was clamoring for the commercials in late August to catch a slight glimpse at the TV magic which awaited the viewer. One of my favorite fall seasons was in 1979 when ABC brought us the gem that was Hart to Hart. It was the delightful who-dun-it centered around amateur detectives for fun who were also a millionaire couple by night. Stefanie Powers and Robert Wagner lit up the screen (and the bedroom) solving crimes and loving each other to the hilt. The cast was complete with Max, their codger of a butler, and the incomparable Freeway. He was a scene stealing dog who in this blogger’s humble opinion stole the show!

As i reminisce about the good old days I think ‘they don’t make em like they used to.’ My love of TV has been tested what with mid season replacements and extended hiatuses. Tell me you aren’t longing for the day two years later when Don Draper will blow smoke in your face? I fear that poor Master Crawley will bleed out if Downton Abbey doesn’t resume quickly and don’t even get me started about those Walkers! The Walking Dead is crawling back to the screen having been hampered by budget cuts and the rising cost of blood flavored corn syrup.

As I think about this I wonder if it’s something to be ashamed of and fearful to acknowledge?

Is there a 12 step program for TV addiction and if there is what happens if the series is cancelled before episode 7? Who will be the special guest? Will there be a spin-off? These days most series hardly go 12 episodes… It brings a whole new meaning to the term sponsorship!
