I cut the cord. No more cable. My reasoning was a mix of financial as well as the thought that my kids brains were turning into a pile of mush inside their heads. I miss my Walking Dead, and mindless MTV shows but I still have my Netflix so we are ok there. I realized a few weeks into this shutdown that I still needed to watch the news, so I bought a HD antenna. I plugged in into the tv in my bedroom and when I scanned my channels, I was given a small gift and a wonderful surprise. Channel 9.3. The Buzzer Channel.
24 hours of all the game shows my parents watched when they were younger and that I also watched
when I was young. There were the classic favorites such as “The Match Game”
Which has become a favorite for my oldest son (” But mom, I need to finish watching to see if they are going to match MY answer). To my favorite old show ( and the favorite of my middle child) “Press Your Luck”
We have been known to scream “No Whammy” at the TV often. Then there are the shows we never saw before like “TattleTales”, that show us some of our favorite celebrities with their spouses.
But you can never forget, “Lets Make A Deal”
So although I have unplugged, the cable, and limited the amount of internet use in my house, we can still gather on my bed, after bath time for 30 minutes of good old game show fun!
