I have watched television on many occasions throughout my life When I was growing up I watched TV to pass the time on days when I could not go outside and the whole day I would complain to my parents that there is never anything fun to do in the house As a child I would sit down in the family TV room watching what I now consider mindless shows for hours upon end I did that to relieve the current state of boredom that I was in Little did I know that those wasted hours I spent in front of a box would shape some of my outlooks on people and life for the future I did not come upon this realization until I started attending classes in the beginning of this semester Through the readings movies lectures and this project I came to realize that I was and am just as impressionable as the next person is when it comes to TV Between counting the technical events that occur in a TV program and watching programs without turning on the sound I came to the realization that all things portrayed on TV are seen as entertaining If everything is entertaining it becomes harder to decipher which aspects are real if anyTo watch a television show and attempt to count the technical events is not an easy task I say attempt because it is difficult to catch all of the technical changes If your attention is averted for a second it is likely that you will miss an event While doing this I watched a sitcom and for the ten minutes that I paid attention to strictly technical events I could not follow what was occurring in the show I counted a total of two hundred and seventy five events in a ten-minute span of the show That total is not including the commercials which take up a majority of the half-hour time slot
