A new feature on in which we take a sociological approach to discovering why I am the way I am by examining email correspondence from 1/2 of where I came from: my mother.  Today, we check in on my mother’s thoughts on television in Wales.

I can’t wait until the new tv season starts here. I think it’s this coming week. Hopefully, there will be something better to watch during the day, as well as at night. They still have Everybody loves Raymond, and Judge Judy during the day, but they also have Sally Jessy Raphael, Jerry Springer, Montel Williams, and Maury Povitch. Now, they’re airing Jake and the Fatman and Gilmore Girls.

But I reached the limit today. I came back from my walk, and sat down looking for something to watch. There’s a documentary on one channel called, “My Monkey Child”, and another called, “Hairy Women”.

What I wouldn’t pay to watch a good Sally Jessy Raphael smackdown on an unruly promiscuous teen right now.

Believe me, the episodes they have chosen to air are bad. Except for one yesterday about a fat 15 year old, dressed in spandex, who told everyone she slept with over 25 guys to get “free stuff” like cigarettes. When the crowd started chanting, “Ho! Ho!”, she did the famous hand out towards them while saying, “You don’t know me!”  But, I think they did.
