Too Good for Television

Was dwelling on material possessions lost recently and recalled this from “My so-called Life”. Naturally a thoughtful someone you tubed the scene for me already. I’ve never had a pair of shoes stolen, though have slept in places where I’ve been cautioned to use them as a pillow, keeping them close.

This series falls into the “too good for television” category. America preferred having “Friends” to serious drama. Networks make incredibly stupid decisions, like firing Ann Curry from the Today show, based solely on ratings. “Today” now resembles a beauty pageant more than a news program.

I loved that as Sarah Jessica Parker was enjoying subsequent  success on “Sex and the City” she was still bashing NBC execs for prematurely cancelling another “Too Good for TV” series, “A Year in the Life” she was a part of.  “I’ll Fly Away” is another, then there is the story of fx, an entire interactive network that no one was ready for.

Off to exercise and forget the vast wasteland…
