Everyone loveS TV 人人爱电视
k:hey, Jimmy, you've been sitting in front of the TV all day. Anything interesting on TV?
J: not really. Quite boring right now, actually. Mostly infomercials and public serveice announcements.
K: why don't you turn off the TV and get outside? You need to get some fresh air.
J: I know, I know.But my favorite show is on in a couple of minutes. It's the series finals, and I wouldn't miss it for the world!
K: Really? What's the series about?
J: well, it's about how an immigrant girl achieve her dream in America. It's a sitcom but really quite smart and really funny. I think you'd like it.
K: it sounds interesting, but I am not a big fan of TV shows. They're time consuming and don't have much depth.
J: I believe some shows are quite informative and interesting. Take this show for example, it examines American xenophobia and how it might conflict with the American dream, with hilarious results.
K: really? that's interesting!
J: yeah.Oh, here it comes! why don't we watch it together? they are going to have a court debate in this episode. It should be good.
K: OK, I'll give it a go.
K: Julie, what's on the tube?
J: nothing but tons of commercials. These days the amount of commercials is amazing.
K: yeah. Maybe we can change to another channel. what about the sports channel? Let's see if there's a game on.
J: okay. Nope, it's a replay of yesterday's soccer match between Brazil and Spain.
k: it was a good game, but not good enough to watch again. Keep surfing.
J: alright. Hmm,this movie is a rerun...I don't know how many times I've seen this show...Commercial again...and a replay of the talk show...oh no,
this show is terrible, you don't wanna watch it.
K:ok, what is it?
J: it's a total rip-off of an American reality show, but the imitation is unbearably clumsy.
K: oh, I know this kind of shows. Sometimes they really piss me off. If I wanted reality,I'd go outside.
J: yeah...it seems what we have on TV now are either repeats, or commercials, or low-quality shows. There's really nothing to watch.
K: I don't get it. We have more than 100 channels and there's still nothing good on! Maybe we should just turn off the TV, get outside, and do something real.
