  •  I love Cracked and PBS (1+ / 0-)

    I read Cracked every day at work! Don't know how NSFW I consider it. But it has pretty much made college seem completely useless because of all the great tid bits of knowledge I've learned from it!

    As for PBS, I can't count the number of great shows I watch on PBS. Doc Martin, Antiques Roadshow, NOVA Science Now, Downton Abbey, anything from Ken Burns. On the upstairs TV I don't have cable, just an antenna. And I can always find something on PBS to watch as I'm winding down for the day. I prefer it over 99% of the stuff on cable. I want it to be preserved and expanded upon for years to come.

    And I've got to find someone there who I can convince that PBS needs to get the British show Q.I. Funny, interesting and hosted by Steven Fry!!

    •  I so agree! (0+ / 0-)

      PBS is my sanctuary, and the only channels (we have 4 locally) that I'm certain to want anywhere I watch TV. I'd be lost without it... and I find very little biased or right-wing talking points among the shows, despite the noise about it here on dKos - and what little there is has certainly been drowned out many times over by heroes like Bill Moyers, series like Independent Lens, and all the others.

      Besides, where else would we be able to see NOVA, NOVA Science Now, Nature, and all the rest of their amazing nature and science lineup and specials? PBS is our last refuge in everyday media, IMHO, of scientific research, unvarnished truth, and unfettered exploration.

      Long live Big Bird and PBS!
