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:
- The Weekend Funnies – Calvin “On” TV
- The Weekend Funnies – TV and Family Time
- The Weekend Funnies – a pointless existence without TV? #lifeishard
- The Weekend Funnies – on TV again
