CBS is gonna screw up the Boston Pops fireworks again this year by not airing the 1812 Overture even though it's featured on their website. I long for the good old days when PBS had this telecast.

Ah well, I live off of rabbit ears, so most of those shows listed don't reach my humble little TV.

However, I do have DVDs! I have Andy Griffith and Gomer Pyle, Perfect Strangers, Beverly Hillbillies, the Lucy Show -- or perhaps the Vicar of Dibley and Cadfael... Oh, I have ALL the MacGyver seasons!

I may just make myself cozy on the couch and design my own TV marathon. :-D
