7 Programs Worth a Bullet to the Big Screen

The Orange County Sheriff's Department was summoned at 10:32 p.m. Aug. 7 to a Laguna Niguel home where a husband had allegedly shot his TV because he did not want his wife watching it.

Not to make light of 67-year-old Lawrence Paul Sentif's felony arrest--on suspicion of grossly negligent discharge of a firearm and vandalism causing more than $400 in damage--but the following seven shows on at that time could've driven a soul to put a bullet in the screen.

CBS: Person of Interest repeated the episode where Carter first meets Reese--and kills tension that had built up all season by their cat-and-mouse relationship that even rolls in the opening credits. What do the writers think this is, Moonlighting? Moider dat teevee!

NBC: A four-hour primetime block of the 2012 Summer Olympics seemed to mostly cover just one sport--and an outcome everyone in Orange County, if not the world, already knew: Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings smoked the Chinese. Even with the beach volleyball competitors' barely there naughty bit coverings, too many killshots coulda been too much overkill to keep from killing the boob tube.

Lifetime: The Mrs. may have kept on the Dance Moms marathon that began at 5 p.m., even though Amas de Casa Desesperadas was starting on KYHY/Canal 22. No one messes with Papi's stories! Donde esta mi pistola!?!

Verdict: Justifiable TVacide.

Except BBT, of course, it IS the bomb.

MeToo.
MeToo.

Reality TV is neither!

All Americans should liberate themselves and shoot their T.V's.. It's full of lies and propaganda, and it's ruining children's minds

I would like to point out that hauling off and slapping people in the face as hard as possible can lead to potentially disastrous consequences to the slapper depending on a variety of factors.

My guilty pleasure is Breaking Bad, but aren't all TV shows the same?  Plain ol' mindless BS?

Oh, by the way, it is obviously aimed at nerds and Bill is a ... wait for it ... complete nerd. (Who's surprised?)

 @GustavoArellano That was a great episode!  The only thing that I don't like about Breaking Bad, and I've had this discussion with friends, is that the whole 5 seasons takes place in the course of one year. I hate that.  No way Walter White became that big within a year and seized the meth world. Skylar was pregnant in season 1 and you're telling me that within a year, or under 2, all of the events that occured is realistic.  That's my only problem with Breaking Bad.  I'd feel better to know that  Junior/Flynn was in college now and that Holly was at least a toddler out of diapers.
