Ha-ha. I had no choice. Back then where we were, many people only had one TV in the house and it was in the living room. So, if you were in there with everyone else, you were going to be watching it. ha-ha.
Later on, I got a used, small black and white TV (from a garage sale) in my room, using an antenna and getting like 3-4 channels (with optimal weather conditions), and I thought I had it made. ha-ha.
