    Don’t know, don’t care, don’t crawl into bed asking silly questions.

    When I was young my mother never made it until the end of Perry Mason. She’d wake up sometime during the news and always ask how it ended. Now older, I’m usually still the one awake at the end, or at least had already seen it. When asked that question my stock answer is “Everybody dies” which is accurate for a lot of movies. Life too for that matter.

    A lot changed with the ability to record TV shows. All you had to do was to remember to record your shows.

    Reminds me of one night around Christmas time some years ago when my mom, her husband, my two siblings, and the dog all fell asleep watching TV after dinner. I was literally the only living creature in that room still awake. They all snored, including the dog.

    How could she tell? She went to bed when the movie-President commanded the gardener to take his place.

    Couldn’t Arlo have just restarted and watched the ending? They were watching a DVD, correct? All week was setting up to watch a DVD

    To close to real life to be funny. This may be the best gag strip Jimmy came up with for Valentines Day:

    I’ve never fallen asleep watching a movie, although I have occasionally gone to bed before the end.

    Happens sometimes with LA Theaterworks, which doesn’t even start until 10:00 Saturday night here. One morning I had to find out the ending so badly I didn’t even get out of bed but found a copy of the play from my phone.

    My parents bought their first TV around 1950. First night, they sat down to watch, and suddenly Mum poked my dad and said, “Russell, it’s broken already!” They both fallen asleep, and missed signoff and the National Anthem, so all that was playing was static.

    And the programming probably hasn’t gotten much better since.

    I can’t sleep sitting up. The drool pooling on my lap wakes me up.

    Before I got a CPAP I went through much of my day in a twilight state. I often saw about half a movie on TV – a few minutes here, a few minutes there…. When I watched movies I had seen I sometimes noticed entire acts were missing.

    This comedic trope really doesn’t work today now that movies can replayed instantly or on demand.

    Has anyone ever seen stereo television?

    Back in the 1960s a comedy act – Bob and Ray – worked out a deal with two of the local stations to do this (one time). One had to have two TVs in the same room at about the same height and set at as specific distance apart. Each channel was put on one of the TVs. I think it was (and let’s say it was) channels 9 and 11. The show started with both channels showing the same picture. It was explained that the left TV had to be on 9 and the right TV on 11 (I am guessing which had to be on which – it is over 50 years ago). Then the “stereo” was turned on. The left TV showed a view from the left and the one on the right, from the right. So if the fellow on the left side’s channel threw the ball to the fellow on the right side – one saw the ball leave the left picture and then arrive in the right picture. They then reversed the camera feeds and showed you what you would see if you had the TVs set to the opposite channels. They went on this like doing things in “stereo” going from one TV to the other. Trust me, it was better and funnier than the description of it – remember we did not have cable or even Beta yet.

    That will happen if you go out for the Early Bird Special evening dining later than 4PM.
