Remember when you had to wait an entire week to watch the Smurfs? Like, seven whole days. When it ended at 11am on Saturday, there was no seeing those little guys (and one girl, but that is a whole post all together), until next Saturday at 10am. The horror.
There was no pressing a button and the show magically appearing at 4:30 on a Thursday, or 1:15 on Monday. It was on when it was on and you dealt with it. Excuse my rant; perhaps you were lucky enough to have a VCR, like we did. But the work that went into recording a show on the 200 pound machine that was louder than the actually TV was hardly worth it. No, you can wait.
Where do you sit on the whole “On Demand” thing? Do you make your kids watch what’s on, when it’s on – aka no DVR or On Demand? Do you ban television all together? Did you know what a Remipede was before you saw it on Octonauts?
