Say Good Night to Boring Late Night Television Programming

This piece will be examining what your television says about your personality. Some people argue that a television can’t say anything about the owner’s personality when quite the opposite seems to be true upon careful examination. This is especially true for the HDTV market. The most important thing that a television might say about the owner’s personality has to do with what type of a host the owner is! If you host gatherings at your home on occasion, and you allow your guests an opportunity to watch movies or sports on your HDTV, what size of a screen are you offering them to do so? A larger screen naturally dictates a better host, and the opposite can also be applied here. If your set is very outdated, it might suggest that you are frugal in nature or afraid of change. In today’s fast paced world of electronic innovations upgrades occur more frequently than ever. This is not to say that keeping a television for the better part of a decade is not socially respectable. Now, if you are touting an old, tube based SDTV in an HDTV world, this might be not be considered socially respectable. By now, it might be a little clearer that televisions can, in fact, http://directtelevisionpackages.com/, say a great deal about your personality!

So what’s Up with Last Resort?

If you have the kind of massive channel selection offered by http://www.cabletelevision.net/cable-providers/ then you might have heard of or even seen a new show on ABC called “Last Resort”.

Last Resort follows the story of Commander Marcus Chaplin (played by Andre Braugher), the CO of a nuclear submarine. In the show, they have been branded as war criminals after disobeying a sketchy order. Most of the episodes take place on a fictional island where the sub is docked.

Themes like honor through defiance and the difference between making a stand and being a terrorist are what make the show great. You essentially have a man who won’t back down and somehow manages to walk the line between grace and hostility without ever compromising his values.

It’s a bold and ambitious idea for a television show, but it demands a little too much from the viewer upfront. Not only does it challenge the viewer to ask important questions both in the fictional world and the real world, it also paints the US Government as a bunch of shady and ambitious bullies.

While that sort of storytelling is certainly revolutionary when it comes to major network television, don’t expect Last Resort to stick around past the first season.
