In previous years I’ve given up snark, and complaining. This year, for Lent I’m giving up trash TV. I tell you this so you can help keep me from breaking my pledge.
As for what’s trash — I have examined my conscience. Ice Road Truckers does not count.
Let me know what you think might or might not be trash TV. The Husband has already weighed in: Swamp People is not trash. It’s culture. (He is pointing out, even as I write, that the swamp people provide good lessons in anger management, compared to the ice road truckers or the fishermen on Deadliest Catch — “And the swamp people have guns and beer!”)
