There was once a time when i used to enjoy watching TV and the various Sitcoms – esp on Star World- Everybody Loves Raymond
Seinfeld
Whose line is it anyway
Frasier
Will & Grace
Different Strokes
Three’s Company
and ofcourse my all time favorite F.R.I.E.N.D.S 
And now it has come to a point, where i barely watch any TV, but am hooked on watching the shows from my Hard drive….
Two and a Half Men
How i Met your Mother
House MD
Scrubs
Entourage
and ofcourse my all time favorite F.R.I.E.N.D.S 
A phenomenon i see happening around me is during conversations we have started relating to certain instances with an episode or a character from one of these shows…!! And for people in the gang who have not seen any, am sure it is frustrating and they want to rip us all apart… But then, being the sweet souls that we are, w proceed to explain the show, and give reference to the instance we are talking about as well .. Not just me, but i see quite a few around me do the same… Its fun, but at times makes me/us wonder “Are we watching too much of these shows or becoming like them?”… and then we shrug it off, laugh and move on untill it pops up again…. 
The same i see with those who watch Tamil soaps too… From mom to aunts to friend’s parents, whenever they are together you can be sure they will talk about a person at a function/home/place and connect them with a character from a show…!! 
Amazing how the idiot box seems to have taken over our minds to a point where we dont think beyond what we see on it…Scary!!
Btw, You should watch all the shows i’ve mentioned… they are absolutely amazing!! 😉
