What's on the tube?  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

I've been slow to post lately, just haven't been feeling the posting bug. My wife reminded me that my last post was a month ago. Ok, let's get something going. I always think, "I should post about this or that" but i'm never near a computer when it happens and don't remember it when I do. Well, i'm sitting on the couch watching TV and here we are.
I'm watching Last One Standing. Anybody else watching this madness? The show is in it's 3rd episode on Discovery Channel. 6 guys from various parts of the world and various backgrounds are traveling around the world and spending around a week with various tribes and villages to learn their culture and compete in their tribal rituals and competitions. The episode I'm watching is these guys in the mountains of Mexico, running a marathon length race through the mountains. They are running in sandals made from old tire treads through rocks, hills, cactus, poisonous spiders and rattlesnake territory all while kicking a wooden ball back and forth with their teammates. It's brutal, but makes for good TV.
Last week they learned how to Stick Fight with the African Zulu tribe. They trained for 6 days and then fought with the rest of the tribe in a traditional batlle between rival villages at a tribal wedding. Some of the fighters were leaving with split open heads and bruised and fractured bones. I think that would have been my favorite challenge so far. I always managed to have fun in close quarters type adrenaline charged fits of fury for no good reason. I have friends that can attest, it's fun sometimes to let your testosterone go wild as long as no one gets hurt too bad.

On another topic, how good is Bionic Woman? I love that show. I think it is now my second favorite behind Heroes. Life is pretty good too, it's not quite top 5 status yet but if Prison Break doesn't pick it up it will be.
My top 5 network TV shows?
1. Heroes
2. Bionic Woman
3. The Office
4. Journeyman
5. Prison Break (Sucks this season but I can't dump it yet)

FYI - the funniest show on TV is on HBO. Curb your Enthusiasm makes me laugh more than any show I have ever seen but is not for the faint of heart.

And that's what I'm watching, you're welcome. Later.
