Television isn’t necessarily a passive experience. Rather, oftentimes we are ripe to learn things from our time deposited in front of the tube.
For example, if for whatever reason I ever need to stall a wedding ceremony, I have learned never to enlist Liz Lemon for the task, lest I subject my guests to an ear-bleeding and downright incorrect rendition of “There Is Love.” NBC’s ’30 Rock’ taught me that as I watched the season finale (find the full episode here).
A few other lessons gleaned from the TV season gone by:
♦ If I ever get to thinking that cheerleading (or basically any other high school-related activity) is hard, a woman named Sue Sylvester will be quick to correct my thinking. (‘Glee‘ | Watch Full Episodes)
♦ A man walking briskly in a pilot’s uniform can pretty much get in anywhere – even the Obamas’ bedroom. (‘30 Rock‘)
♦ “Prevening” is the time between afternoon and evening. (‘The Big Bang Theory‘)
That’s just a small sampling of the things I learned this past TV season. In the Comments section below, share what your favorite show showed you!
