We watch a lot of tv. I’d say that 90% of that watching is on The History Channel or Discovery Channel. I don’t say that to sound like a tv-culture snob. I still love my cartoons and COPS and anything that begins with “World’s Wildest…” but we are pretty hooked on those two channels.

My favorite new show is History Rocks. I think it’s just a special that ran the last two nights, but it was pretty awesome. A history of the 70’s with pop-up blurbs (without the annoying pop-up video sounds), set to a soundtrack of rock songs. And it’s hosted by Meatloaf. Given my hatred of most things Meatloaf, the show must be good if I was able to watch it without hearing Paradise By The Dashboard Light going through my head (which makes me all kinds of stabby).

Cities of the Underworld is another cool show. It still boggles my mind how they build cities on top of cities. Can’t wait to get to California in a couple of months so I can check out the old Sacramento, which is under the new Sacramento.

I wanted to write more about what I’m watching lately, but who knew it was 7:04 already and I’m supposed to be on the road to work in about five minutes and my hair is still wet? I forgot about this aspect of blogging.

Anyhow, what are you all watching these days?
