Summer TV

June 23, 2014 - Andrea Johnson
The local cable company is trying to lure me with a deal on a cable subscription.

While I am a little wistful that I will have to wait a year to see the fourth season of "Game of Thrones,' I don't feel like paying for a subscription to HBO to see it any earlier. Besides, I already knew that Tyrion killed his father because I've read all the books. It doesn't make me like him any less. Tywin Lannister kind of had it coming.

When I did have cable, I found myself watching mainly three or four channels: 24 hour news channels, gardening shows on HGTV and the occasional ubiquitous "Law and Order" rerun. None of them were worth close to $50 a month.

On the other hand, there isn't much to speak of on network TV during the summer either. The weather is too nice to watch much TV anyway. When I do have the TV on, I enjoy the "Doc Martin" series on PBS about a curmudgeonly doctor. I also have been watching classic movies on DVD. Right now I'm on a bit of an Alfred Hitchcock kick. Who knew that a 50-year-old suspense movie like "Rear Window" could be quite so good?

What is on your screen these days when you feel like watching TV?

Did you see the recent US Supreme Court decision about police searching cell phones? The decision was a no brainer.
