A Cure For The Television Blues

File Photo

  Dear Joel,

  I find television so bad lately. The news is depressing; the shows are violent or racy and sports has become a platform for opinions and protest. It is so hard to find anything fun to watch but old movies. Do you have any suggestions for tv viewing?


  I agree, tv is really awful, but there are a couple things that you might enjoy. I like to watch old game shows. They’re clean and funny and the whole family can play together. I also enjoy many of the documentaries that you can find in places like the History Channel, National Geographic and the Animal Planet. The old movies are great too and when in doubt, there’s nothing wrong with a good book.

  Thanks for writing,

  Joel Markel
