The Weeknd Funnies – on #TV and Passive #Entertainment

One of the themes Bill Waterson visited repeatedly in his Calvin and Hobbes comic strips was the influence of the media – and especially television – on people. Although TV is not necessarily bad or evil (we have cable, Netflix, and a BlueRayTM player in our home), it can definitely become a time-waster, distraction, or even an idol if we let it.

Do you watch too much TV in your house??

Here are some of my other blogs with Calvin and Hobbes strips about TV or the media:

  1. We used to. As a couple, we have never had cable/satellite, and you may remember from my blog that we got rid of Netflix and Hulu. We do have an X-Box360 and Bluray player, and we currently have roommates with Netflix that we occasionally watch with them. Otherwise, we just watch the occasional show or movie. It was a bit of an addiction for us, we had to admit. We simply did not realize it until we cut most of it out!

      Daniel – thanks for sharing! I think there are many people who don’t realize how much of an addiction it is for them… glad to hear about the positive choices you’re making for your family!
