Well, that's not really an easy question. For active TVs that we watch, 3: living room, kitchen, and studio. However, I have several more video monitors because of the production work, and occasionally I watch stuff on the computer monitors.
2. On average, how much TV do you watch in a week?
Again, tough question. I very often have the TV on in the studio while I'm working on other things, but it's not really keeping my attention. Shows I actually take the time to watch, maybe a couple of hours. Then there is the whole renting of DVDs to take into account, so let's say 5 hours a week for real-time.
3. Do you feel that television is bad for young children?
Especially if it falls on them.
I don't think television is bad in and of itself. I think that it becomes bad when it becomes a replacement for parenting. It is a powerful tool, and if abused can be dangerous, but it can also be remarkably helpful.
4. What TV shows do you absolutely HAVE to watch, and if you miss them, you're heartbroken?
Aargh. There aren't really any that I HAVE to watch. I like to watch Enterprise and Angel, and I will generally make a point of watching them if other things don't get in the way, but it doesn't break my heart to miss them. Most other shows I'll watch if they happen to be on.
5. If you had the power to create your own television network, what would your line-up look like?
I couldn't possibly do just one network. I'd have to have several:
- BHM: the Bad Horror Movie network.
- HOR: The good horror movie network
- BTS: The Behind The Scenes network
- PMFSN: The Poor-Man's Film School network
