TV on Friday to Sunday nights used to be good, the three commercial channels would each show one or two movies a night competing for the ratings, however with more and more households getting payTV each year the goodness of weekend TV has decreased rapidly. If I am lucky I might get one movie that looks interesting and when it comes to a 3hrs of escapism in front of the TV I am pleased quite easily.
All I want is to be able to watch a semi-decent movie on the weekend!
Since it is a four day weekend here at the moment, I hoped that at least a semi decent movie would be on but nothing.
Friday: 7 – Passion of Christ, 9 – Footy, 10 – General tv shows
Saturday: 7 – General tv shows, 9 – Paulie, 10 – Footy
Sunday: 7 – The Ten Commandments, 9 – Trapped, 10 – Small Claims 3
I was so desperate for a movie last night that I went to the video store and rented a couple of DVDs. I picked up Elizabethtown (loved it), Off the Map (weird), Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (dude it’s the DD plot with Latin Ballroom, it rocked 🙂 ) and Anita & Me (haven’t watched it yet).

So with you on crappy TV…what happened there. It used to be, back in the day (do I sound about 90 or what LOL), that you got a decent movie on at 8.30 (and not just 1 channel) and then a movie of lesser quality to follow (and you know how I love a “bad” movie LOL) and then a complete stinker real late, that is so bad that it’s just a hoot to watch.
I can keep scrappin all Sat night with a line up like this. Now I HAVE to have DVD’s because there is nothing.
OK, off soap box now LOL
