My general experience has been that if there is a tv around I will end
up watching too much as a sort of default activity whereas if I don't
have one, I don't really miss it. There are really only a few shows I
logically think are worth watching but somehow if the television is
there I end up wasting time in front of it. I mostly like to be able to
watch dvds and I can do this fine on my computer. Now arguably, I just
waste time at my computer, but that's a different issue.
