I love television. In fact, I like it so much that I attempted to write for it for a while. Perhaps I can thank my years of watching television for inspiring me to start a writing career… perhaps it was in watching Laura and Mary Ingalls that I learned about the goodness of community… perhaps it was in watching “You Can’t Do that on Television” that I learned that I can fit inside a locker in Canada… perhaps it was in watching the Smurfs that I learned about the detriment of having an unbalanced gendered society. Perhaps if I let my kids watch two more hours of Doc McStuffins this morning that they might get a full ride to medical school? Perhaps.
