How many of you out there have discovered TWOP? That is – Television Without Pity? Never heard of it, huh? Well, here is the link www.televisionwithoutpity.com so you can check it out for yourself! Or you can read on a little more and get the scoop before you check it out!
Television Wihout Pity is simply a way to find out about the over one thousand TV shows on cable , TIVO, satellite or aliens-ate-my-TV networks (that last one is a joke for the slow!) that you may have missed during the week. TWOP gives you a little recap of (and ersatz critiquing of) all your fav television shows. Of course, if you feel particularly deprived why not program your VCR to record the bugger that you can’t live without? Just a thought.
Well, most people never miss "their show" but occasionally when life gets in the way of your television watching you can use t his wonderful internet device to find out what you missed , with or without the critique. Everything is written in a professional way so you won’t be reading some ranter’s blog on what they hate about your favorite soap and the world in general. Many of the recaps are hilarious so if you haven’t developed a funny bone concerning your show, you may want to s kip it altogether!
If you do visit it, be prepared for the inevitable. You’re going to be completely overwhelmed by their database and wander around aimlessly for awhile (used to be called "surfing"!) but it is well worth it to find out that , as I’m writing this, there are about 951 channels to choose from, in as diverse programming as C-Span’s Writing About History (pour Florent!), Starz will be bringing up the rear with The Lord of the Rings (didn’t say which part of the Trilogy, of course!) The Little Zoo that Could will be on Animal PLanet and MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 will also be coming on shortly.
That bit of information can be seen in the meevee.com part of TWOP and if that doesn’t entertain you then you just don’t know how to live, but I’ll bet you don’t weigh over 150 pounds!
Sarcasm, just one more service I offer!
The Castle Lady
Proverbe du jour: Teach me to feel another’s woe,
To hide the fault I see;
That mercy I to others show,
That mercy show to me. -Alexander Pope
On Monday we’ll go back to the castles of Northwest England. Promise.
