Seinfeld
Seinfeld It was a warm September Thursday night in 1991. I was engaged in my favorite past time of channel surfing when a light appeared at the end of the tunnel. Displayed on my favorite, 20 inch friend, (also known as my usual Saturday night date), appeared a remarkable treasure. There before my eyes was a sitcom called Seinfeld. From that moment on I was astounded to find that not even great sitcoms such as my beloved Mash and I Love Lucy were as captivating or enthralling. There is onl...

Six Hours of Television
Six Hours of Television In looking at modern television programming there are hundreds of shows to choose from.

Four hours of the programming I chose is perhaps the most popular programming this year, consis...

Jeff Pavelcsyk
Jeff Pavelcsyk LE 100 sect-18 March 3, 1997 These are some views on why talk shows are trash. They do nothing at all to improve any standard of living in this country, or others also. The shows are about ninety percent on topics that do not affect any of us, or that the people in general have any sort of interest in. All they do is pollute todays already sickening society with trashy ideas so that some other idiot can go out and try, after getting the idea from the show. First we will start wi...

TV shows are probably the primary source of entertainment for the average American. Most of them run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with reruns starting at 5 p.m. We watch them because they give us something to do, a way to relax, something to help pass the time.

We live in an age where the brutality and the vigilante justice of the knight errant is no longer acceptable for people with positions of stature in society. While courage and honor are still praised by society, one rarely finds a man true to his word regardless of cost.

Those who might have a keen sense of justice often have only indirect metho...

A hero thinks more of others than he or she thinks of him or her self. The characters in the poem, Women, and The Odyssey are both epic heroes. Odysseus is a strong and brave man, but I think he lacks one of the ...

SHAKESPEARES WORLD Almost every nation on earth reads, studies and performs the works of William Shakespeare. No writer of any country, nor any age, has ever enjoyed such universal popularity.

Sailors race across the thrashing waves. Their canvas full of the harmless breeze. Drinkers acclaim the grape-giver Dionysus, capping ...
