    they say you not ever have a TV in the bedroom but everyone I know has one, I can’t tell you the number of times I have fallen asleep with the TV on and woke up in the middle of some goofy 2am show. lol

    Rarely fall asleep with the TV on but I usually read before bed, can’t count how many times I’ve woken up with a smushed book

    Nope, not TV in our bedroom, just an old monster in the living room and no cable. We don’t even have that decoder box when they made the switch to digital broadcasting back in, what, 2007? When they call TV a vast wasteland, they’re half right.

    I think she was expecting Arlo to do something a little more active than sleep.

    This is a great strip; Jimmy is wise because I’m guessing he has thrown off the pressure of trying to uproariously funny every day.

    These subtle glimpses into their lives are nice. If Jimmy felt he had to be hilarious every day, the strip might last five years, and he would burn out. This is much better; maybe we’ll see Arlo and Janis really go gray together this way.

    We don’t have a TV in our room. One time when I was in the hospital, they broughti n a new patient at 2 AM. As soon as she was settled, she turned on her TV – and went to sleep. I had to call to have somebody come in to turn it off.

    The TV wakes up Janis, who in turn wakes up Arlo, who has fallen asleep watching TV. So, instead of simply turning off the TV, Arlo sets the sleep timer for 45 minutes and goes back to sleep.

    I have three TVs but none in my bedroom. Even if I am sick, any TV I watch is in the living room from the comfort of my couch.

    He was already asleep, so she could have just shut it off instead of waking him up to set the timer.

    PS No TV in our bedroom, either.

    I also only have one TV… located in the living room and connected only to a VCR. The few times it is turned on are to watch DVD movies.

    my take on this is she was referring to the timer to wake up with and he used the one to turn the TV off with

    Remotes are good for turning off the tv from bed.

    TV in the bedroom will hurt the sleep pattern, but I still have one anyway.
