It’s been an mixed week, I have been on holiday, came back to my sons birthday and my uncle going to the hospital after a fall.
That is where my first, and I hope last, encounter with love Island occurred.
My uncle is suffering from the early stages of dementia and is constantly looking for ‘you know’ on the telly. Whilst he does this he leaves programs on. Tonight it was Love Island, 20 minutes of it.
I do not understand the appeal, or what entertainment it offers that differs from the end of a night of booze down the local nightclub. Except these people are sober, I think.
Petty squabbles, jumping into differing beds like they were teenagers and that was pretty much all I saw them do.
I thought entertainment was to transport you away from reality for just little while, to give you a break. Not bring strife into your home – except via news channels.
I do not miss having my TV connected to a multitude of telly stations. It’s been 4 years since it has shown a tv station on it. And from what glimpses I catch, it is the same program formats from before I switched off.
I do not think I will be switching back on for a long while. Box sets offer programs I want to watch – minus all the adverts. Binge watch anyone?
