A new show --- and it surprised me...

Day 3. I found a new show. I know, I know. TV is considered wasting time. It's entertainment that can numb and make you disengage. Tonight I caught a glimpse of one that made me think and look at things, I don't know, different. Call it an "aha" moment like she did, or maybe I just liked the inside peek into what has been so successful for such a long time. I can't say that I always agree with the show or the stances it takes, but you can't help but acknowledge that the show and the person with the most visible face there have made an indelible impact on the entertainment industry. Tonight I watched "Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes". I know I'm on a break from school these days, and I know I committed to spend this time reading more and doing more things with my fam & friends while I have the break. But I also confess that tonight I set my DVR to record the show when it comes on. It makes me look at me different, and what I do, and why I do it - amazingly on more levels than I would ever have imagined. I watched just to see what it was like. I was pleasantly surprised...and challenged...and encouraged...and thankful... I'm not an "ultimate viewer" of Oprah, but have watched it numerous times over the last 25 years. I've watched many of the top 100+ series finales ever shown, including the last Johnny Carson - M*A*S*H - Cosby Show - Newhart - Cheers - Seinfeld - Friends - Family Ties - Home Improvement - Frasier ... skip down to Who's the Boss - Mad About You (one of my all-time fav shows) - Alias (ok, so it wasn't on the list but I loved it!) - Jack Bauer & 24 - and the list goes on... Most recently I watched Larry King's last show. And yes... I will watch the end of Oprah. I know many of the shows on that list probably have some of you going "huh? what's that?" and that's fine. There were many on that top list that I didn't recognize as well, or at least I didn't watch. But I admit - I've watched Oprah, and I'll be watching Behind the Scenes for the whole season.
