Celebrity Pictures and Gossip

I am not interested in reading about celebrities’ lives and gossip – well, yes I read Heat magazine, Hello and More when I visit the beauty salon but that is just something to do while I am waiting. As a reasonably intelligent woman I would not have expected to become interested in the world of stars and their outfits, love affairs and breakups. I disliked Big Brother intensely, and I still do – who wants to watch a random group of individuals passing time in unfamiliar surroundings?

How could we ever forget them? After nine seasons of watching the “show about nothing,” Seinfeld remains, to this day, one of the most popular sitcoms in American history. Once a week, millions of viewers would tune in to spend half an hour with the Seinfeld cast; Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer.

The Wire – Real Life Drama in Fictional Portions

There are many shows that have stood the test of time over the years. Classic programs like Seinfeld and Friends kept audiences and coming back for more season after entertaining season. Shows like Law & Order or CSI: Crime Scene Investigation have almost cult like followings, people who tune in every week without fail to catch the newest episode of their favorite long lasting series. A show like The Simpsons that has been on the air for almost two decades is obviously a fan favorite and can safely be labeled one of the most successful shows of all time, simply by looking at its staying power on network TV.

The Simpsons – A Lesson in TV Longevity

When people think of cartoon they normally conjure up an image of a little pink bunny rabbits hopping around magical forests entertaining and delighting little children. Cartoons are more often than not associated with children more so than adults, and rightfully so: a large majority of the cartoons put on television are in fact geared toward the younger portion of the television watching community. That being said, recently there has been an influx in the number of cartoon programs designed for adults and a more mature audience.

Satellite TV is Where the Doctor Shows Are

For whatever reasons, we like to watch doctor shows. From Doogie Howser to Grey’s Anatomy, shows featuring medicals have been airing to popular demand for decades. What is it about watching surgeries in HD and internal romantic hospital drama that keeps us coming back for more? Maybe because we routinely interact with our doctors, but do not know them personally; their internal lives thus become the subject of fantasy and wonder. Who are these people who take care of our bodies and mental well-being? Do they like sports? Do they have girlfriends or boyfriends? Are they doctors too? Welcome the phenomenon of programs featuring doctors as their stars.

Satellite TV and the Rise of Lifestyle Programming

50 years ago the term lifestyle probably didn’t carry the same material connotation that it does today. Maybe before it meant if you liked or played sports, of if you preferred baking over housekeeping, but in today’s fast moving world, it means much more than just what you do. Now it signifies an entire way of life, specifically implying the brands we buy, the cars we drive, the places where we vacation, and how we recreation. Marketers target and sale lifestyles, not just products. The choices we make dictate how we are marketed to, and how we will buy in the future. Along with advertising campaigns and magazines how-to articles, satellite TV is full of channels encouraging viewers to live better, with more beauty, and a touch of the handmade. From the informative to the gastronomic, there is something for every lifestyle.

Look For the Scoop? Check Out Satellite TV

It is okay, you can admit it. You want to know which celebrity is dating whom, and what Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars.

However, sometimes buying a magazine feels a little chincy. It is proof of our curiosity, and proof isn’t what we want. We just want the scoop. Welcome satellite TV. Second to the Internet, it is the best kept secret to keeping up with the rich and famous.

High School Series We Love on Satellite TV

Maybe because of the nostalgia for the “good ol days” of Friday night sports games and school dances in the cafeteria, or maybe because high school just looks better on the small screen, viewers continually are drawn to high school dramas. Whether the main characters are the primary interest, or the halls of their schools, there seems to be something endlessly interesting about this part of our adolescent life.

What Do Western Movies Usually Depict?

Most western movies will usually depict a gunfighter against another gunfighter. One would usually be the good guy and one would usually be the bad guy. But, both of them would be very handy and quick with a gun and thus, it would often be exciting wondering which of them was going to end with the gunshot. In the early days, many times it would be the cowboys against the Indians or even the cavalry against the Indians. These were usually the cliche type of western movies that would follow a certain guideline that was the norm.
